Notes: Toyota says the 2015 Sienna has been redesigned with "more swagger." Let's hope it's also been redesigned with less seat noise.

Power sliding doors, both driver and passenger, malfunctioned. While in park, the doors were open, when we pressed to button to close them, the doors came partly closed, then opened back up, then tried to close, then tried to open. Regardless of what we did, the door would not operate correctly. Eventually, we turned the switch to manual and were able to close the doors. Took the van to dealer. They said it was the motor and replaced it. That was 11-14-2016. Now 1-4-2017, the doors are not working properly again. And when I called the dealer, they never mentioned the recent recall. Neither have I received any notification from Toyota regarding the dangerous recall. I happened to hear about it from a family member. I spoke with the dealer about it, they said call Toyota. I called Toyota, they said that I would eventually get something in the mail. It is hard to believe that a manufacturer would be so irresponsible about major safety issues. Once I looked online, I found that the sliding door problem has been going on for years. How is it legal for a company to purposely continue to endanger people's lives?

When we first leased the vehicle the "new car smell" was overwhelming, it caused me headaches, nausea and a feeling of being disoriented. I brought it back to the dealer several times and they refused to do anything about it, stating "it's just the new car smell." This "smell" has not gone away and every time I drive the car I get a terrible taste in my mouth, a headache and nausea. I refuse to drive the car and my husband has now been driving the car with a car deodorizer to disguise the smell for 7 months and it has not dissipated. This is not fair that the dealer will not do anything and they deny/refuse to test or confirm any "toxicity" exists. I would like the car to be tested to relieve any concerns that I have for my families well being. We have young children and I am not sure of the dangers or effect this could have on their health. This is not fair to the consumer that a dealership would refuse to do anything to address or correct the situation, especially when it is a leased vehicle. Please help if you can!

After 1 week of purchase date of 2015 Toyota Sienna lw AWD, I've noticed buzz noises coming from under the front dashboard. I took the car for service at Toyota nashua at nashua, nh on 7/18 for buzz noising, auto-dimm rear view mirror failure, and strong burned smell from the ac vents. Buzz noising - dealership claimed it's normal op, but this is not acceptable since servo motor is out of norm operation but refuse the replace it. Auto-dimm rear view mirror - dealership claimed they can't fix since it's day time & don't have tool to verify the fault. Burning smell from ac vents - dealership claimed because it's new and they sprayed deodorizer.
