The costs of raising a large family are already high, so many parents can't afford to spend exorbitant amounts of money on the family car.
According to Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays, the 2011 Toyota Sienna matches in comfort, style and foundation. It offers a smooth ride over bumps with relatively low noise on the highway, but the power steering feels fake.
However, the interior is roomy and comfy for parents and kids, she writes on the website. Both driver and front seat passenger have lots of room, while the cabin has comfortable seats and a minimum of 10 cupholders, which is great for all seven passengers it can carry.
Kids will appreciate the rear seat entertainment system that has a new split screen monitor, so siblings can watch two different programs at once. Parents will like the new rearview camera.
The Sienna also comes in a four-cylinder base with LE trims, which should help with fuel costs, according to Edmunds.com. This feature, plus the van's dependability, make it one of the best cars for bad credit, because drivers can keep fuel costs and repair costs down, saving more money for car loan payments.
