Would you recommend buying a 04 Sienna with power sliding doors (75k miles)

I am looking at used minivans. One of them being 2004 or newer Toyota Siennas. My wife really wants power sliding doors and liftgate. I have heard things about power sliding doors failing and being pricey to fix. I worry that while bells and whistles are nice they are just more things that can end up breaking.

So would you recommend someone pursuing a 2004 Sienna XLE with power sliding doors and 75K miles on it? It also has nav, dvd, sunroof, leather, rear camera, etc.

    Shop for a CPO model if that's a big concern.

    Any loaded up van has a lot of things on it that could break.

    Sienna is the most reliable, so odds are best in the van segment, but if you want piece of mind go with CPO.

    Don't those doors have manual backup...??

    Good point, there's a switch to disable the power doors, and then you can slide them manually.

    At 90k, the timing belt is due to be replaced and the spark plugs should have been changed at 60k.Timing belt can be pricey and I'd check to see that spark plugs were done.

    I have 137k on my 00 sienna and it has been very reliable so far.
  • I never saw a response from this shopper.....

    What would you guys say is a "reasonable" price for the van he described???
