Failure Date: 10/11/2010

Toyota 1999 Sienna steering pulls to left. I have to hold steering tight to keep it to right. I already got alignment done two times and new tires changed but pulling to left starts right away. It is very disappointing.

At 28,400 miles mechanic advised that both inner tie-rods are showing a small amount of movement which will cause premature tire wear. I was told that there should be no play at all. Seems very early in the vehicle's life to have this type of problem.

Run flat tires are unsafe. 2004 Toyota Sienna xle awd has oe dunlop sp sport 4000t dsst 'run flat' tires. Car has 19,500 miles of moderate driving. Dealer refused to rotate and perform alignment at 19,000 miles because tires were too worn. Referred to dunlop who elected to do nothing. Now, at 21,500 cords are visible on inside edges of front tires. A. The only available replacements (from tirerack. Com) are $845 plus mounting and balancing ($142). B. 'run-flat' cars do not have spare tires, jacks or tire well for storage, so there is no practical way to switch to regular tires. C. Dealer says that Toyota will sell a kit that includes a Mini-spare. Requires reconfiguring rear of van. Result means that there is no more storage well under rear seats. Toyota will not give the kit to affected owners. They sell it for $1,300. D. A decision to stay with (and replace) the 'run flats' means an out-of-pocket expense of ~$1,000 every year. E. If Toyota abandons the 'run flat' consumer is absolutely victimized. F. If the suspension is a culprit, it is a serious safety hazard to a class of owners who generally have infants or young children. Nhtsa should act to require Toyota to issue recall and retrofit all affected Siennas with standard tires and the components to fix flats!.

I have run flat tires on my 2005 Sienna (purchased October 2004). I also bought a set of winter tires & rims) in December 2004 and since then I am alternating them 6 months of the year. Have currently 21,000 miles on my vehicle. The dunlop tires are almost worn out, although I probably put on them mo more than 12-13,000 miles. Part of the reason I believe is that when I bought the car(even when I test drove it) I noticed a rough ride and a pull to the left, but could not wait for the dealer to order another car, so I took it home (I bought it from a dealer out of town). Also I was blaming the tire thread geometry for the rough ride, and the dealership offered me to change the tires for the cheaper ones bridgestone, but I had to pay like $80 for the operation, so I decided not to. The rough drive continued until I decided to take it to my local dealership who found out that it was misaligned. The did a free alignment but the car would still pull to the left. This, I was told, was normal, since the tires had been worn unevenly, so now they had to get the normal wear again. Now the car no longer pulls, but this comes a the cost of having excessively worn tires. I see that this is not an unique case.

I have had multiple problems with both sliding doors on my minivan. I had rattles fixed on 3 separate occassions and recently took the van in because the driver side sliding door would not open without putting the weight of my body behind it. The dealer shrugged it off by saying there was a coke spilled in the door. The dealer cleaned "the coke" and the door is still sticking shut. Now the tailhatch handle has broken off and I can no longer open the tailgate. I have also had problems with the suspension. The van feels like the front wheels are pulling to one side. I have had it aligned on numerous occasions and the dealer says there is nothing wrong. The other day it felt like the front wheel was going to fall off. I have also had the brakes worked on (at my expense) because the dealer said I left the parking brake on all the time. I no longer leave the parking brake on and the brakes are beginning to sqeek and squeal again. Mr.
