Sienna - 7 or 8 passenger?


New member
I'd go for the 8th seat. Better to have the space then not.

So true! :)

I have an 8 seater Sienna, and have 2 kids. BUT, we plan on having more in the near future and my mom goes with us all the time. I also have a dozen nieces and nephews who always want to tag along with the 'cool aunt' *ahem* <---that would be *me* :whistle:

I'd say that would be the case for me too, if my sister didn't live 7 hrs away! :( (but I get to go see her on Thurs! :D)

I just bought an 05 Sienna this past week with 7 seats and I love it! I love that I can crawl over the console up front and walk through the entire vehicle without getting out of the car. Why does that matter, you ask? Because it was 105 today when DD2 screamed "I HAVE TO POTTY NOW!!!" I was able to pull over, grab the portable potty, and let her pee without my big pregnant self having to get out of the car and sweat. It'll also be great when I'm out and about and the new bean needs to breastfeed. The passenger middle row seat was in the center position when we got the van, but I moved it to the outboard position so that I could walk through the van.
