2015 Honda Odyssey Elite vs 2015 Kia Sedona SXL 2015 Toyota Sienna Limited Full Review
2015 Honda Odyssey Elite vs 2015 Kia Sedona SXL 2015 Toyota Sienna Limited
Toyota’s Sienna is also fresh off a fluffing, with a stiffened structure,
updated dashboard, new grille and headlights, and the “Driver Easy
Speak” built-in bullhorn. The latter uses the voice-control microphone
already embedded above the driver’s head and broadcasts scoldings through
the rear speakers. The Toyota is a “Top Safety Pick Plus” on account of
its available Pre-Collision automatic-braking system. (The Honda was a TSPP
last year, but isn’t for 2015 because the criteria changed this year to
require an automatic-braking system.) The Sienna is still the only minivan
to offer four-wheel drive, but we had a front-driver. Our Limited model
included dual sunroofs and a Blu-ray player. That plus the $1800 Advanced
Technology package (adaptive cruise control, Pre-Collision System, and
hill-start assist) punted the price up to the test’s highest: $48,035.
The Kia Sedona is all-new this year. Joining the Odyssey on Safety Pick
Tier Two (because its collision-warning system only screams of impending
doom, rather than braking to do something about it), it also boasts eight
different electronic systems to mitigate the loss of traction or stability.
All this for an imminently controllable transportation appliance. Our SXL
also packs 19-inch wheels, matches the Toyota’s sunroof count, and
includes a $2700 tech package that adds lane-departure and
forward-collision warnings, adaptive cruise, and a surround-view system.
Yet at $43,295, it’s the cheapest in this test.
Our Kia is, however, missing one $995 option that could make all the
difference: a back-seat entertainment system. That feature matters more in
this test than most. Seizing on the notion that, in a minivan, the
left-front seat is for an adult and everything else is for kids, Alterman
decreed that, rather than follow our usual comparison-test regimen, we’d
swing by managing editor Mike Fazioli’s house on a Saturday morning and
take his kids’ birthday parties on the road. We’d drive two vanloads of
11-year-old boys and one of 15-year-old girls to an indoor water park four
hours away. Along the way, the kids would rate the vans for comfort and
entertainment value. The drivers would wish for bulkheads behind their
The Sedona’s new 3.3-liter V-6 sports variable intake-manifold geometry
for a best-in-test 276 horsepower. That makes it
slightly quicker than the other two, but it needs to downshift more often
to maintain speed up hills, and those shifts are not smooth. On the plus
side, the Sedona’s 167-foot stop from 70 mph is only four feet longer
than that of the last Volkswagen GTI we tested.
The Honda lags behind the Toyota in other regards, too. According to
measurements, the Odyssey’s front quarters are only one cubic foot
smaller than the other vans, but subjectively, its forecabin feels a lot
tighter. Our tallest drivers’ knees were close to the dash—pressed
against it, in fact, in the fixed-height front-passenger seat—and our
hair brushed the headliner.
Speaking of needless luxury, both the Odyssey and Sienna have split-view
monitors so kids can simultaneously watch two different movies on
side-by-side screens. That strikes us as complete sensory overload, albeit
useful for developing the skills necessary to focus on what a modern
newscaster is saying while also reading the unrelated ticker at the bottom
of the screen.

2004 Toyota Sienna Limited Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2004 Toyota Sienna Limited.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
van while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds. A thorough tour/review of this
van designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2010 Kia Sedona Quick Tour, Start Up, & Rev With Exhaust View - 26K
2010 Kia Sedona
This has a 3.8L DOHC V6 making 244 HP, while paired to a 5 Speed auto.
This generation Sedona way better than the 1st generation which was just
horrible in every way.
The interior in this van is quite low rent overall, tho it is roomy & the
seats were comfortable for the most part. Many surfaces were rough, sharp,
& hard. Other components felt cheap & flimsy. I also disliked the Climate &
radio control buttons & its layout which looks dated & feels cheap to the
touch. One thing I always notice with this 3.8L Engine is how unrefined
they sound at startup. Cold Starts sound sloppy & hot starts like after a
long drive. Also on the high end, the engine does sound a bit grainy.
Trailer Hitch Installation - 1998 Toyota Sienna - etrailer.com
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we are going to install part number 87638 from Hidden Hitch. And we
are going to be installing this on a 1998 Toyota Sienna mini van. And this
also applies for part number 75120 from Draw-Tite. To begin our install, we
need to do a couple things. We need to lower the Exhaust to help get it out of the way.
Sometimes, you can sneak it between the bumper and tail pipe, but just to
give you a little bit of extra working room, we will go ahead and lower it
out of the way. And then also these tie-down hooks for shipping, these come
off and stay off. And we will begin by removing these. Alright, at this
point we can go ahead and install the hitch with the fasteners towards the
end of the vehicle. And it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands
with this one it is a little on the wide side. We will just temporarily
install it with the bolts.
Once you get your hitch up there, what we want to do is go ahead and
actually get it centered first, simply because we have to drill the holes
out towards the front of the vehicle. And we have to get it straight right
off the bat because there are no holes to adjust it after we drill our
holes. We will go ahead and center it the way we want, like we were done
with it, and then we will go and drill our holes out. We are actually going
to start off a pilot hole first with a quarter inch bit. And then what will
happen next, we will take down the hitch and we will run the hole out to
9/16. That will insure we have a little bit of extra room to pull the bolt
and plate through the frame and out the hole. We have our quarter inch hole
drilled out and the hitch out of the way, and we are going to enlarge it to
9/16.Actually, we will leave a 1/2 inch right now, then it will be a little
bit easier to go to 9/16 size.
What the next steps involve is, actually you have to enlarge this hole to
accept the hardware. Basically you have to enlarge it enough to get this
piece of the plate inside there and also the head of a bolt. And there is a
variety of different ways you can do this. Most of the time, you can drill
out a series of 1/2 inch holes around this, just to make it big enough to
run the bolt through, pry some metal out of the way. Also, you could
actually use a cold chisel, or air chisel, and notch it out a little bit
too, to get the same effect. And you just have to chip away the excess
steel just to get your hardware inside. I think it might be easiest all the
way around just to go ahead and just get yourself a regular 1 inch or 1-1/4
inch hole saw and just drill it out and have a nice easy finish when you
are done. And you can easily touch it up. So you can see, I left a little
ring here to show you what we are taking out. It is a good idea to get as
close as possible to a hole and have enough steel to keep your bit from
coming out. But you want to use up as much of the original hole as
possible. That way, you lose as little steel as possible. We have our hole
made. Actually on the passenger side, we actually offset it a little bit to
stay away from the heater hose.
We will just go ahead and fish our wire through. We are just using some
good old stove wire, but you can use safety wire, anything that will hold
its shape once you can wrap it around a bolt and pull it back through will
work just fine. Put our plate in first and then we will wrap our wire
inside the threads of the bolt and then pull it on through. This is where
it helps to have a 9/16 hole. That exact 1/2 inch hole, the wire might get
hung up in there. Wiggle it around so you get the plate nice and flat. And
you know you have it right when the bolt settles straight down. And just go
repeat for the other side. OK, once you get your hardwire fished in, it
would be a good idea to go ahead and spray down the holes you just drilled
out with a little bit of spray paint or some primer to help seal the steel
When reinstalling the hitch, you want to put the metal plate between the
hitch and the frame of the vehicle. Make sure you do that for both sides.
Alright, now we can reinstall the rest of the fasteners and snug them up.
OK, at this point we can give the bolts their final torque. OK, we can go
ahead and reinstall our Exhaust.
Alright, that concludes our install of part number 87638 from Hidden Hitch
on our 1998 Toyota Sienna mini van.
