Toyota recalling 834,000 sienna minivans in north america

I wouldn't want my side doors opening while driving! That sounds dangerous.

Toyota isn't as reliable as they use to be.

This is an example of why, after 10 years of owning a Toyota Sienna, we chose the Pacifica this time around. Yes, there's a reliability risk with a first-model-year vehicle, and FCA isn't known for its outstanding reliability. But our Toyota wasn't perfect and wouldn't have impressed many owners for its outstanding reliability. And, you can get a lemon no matter the vehicle brand or manufacturer. Two of my family members have had Toyotas over this same period, both with much bigger problems than we had.

So far, we've had *zero* issues with our Pacifica. I think the gap between Japanese and U.S. manufacturer's initial quality is growing smaller.

The Sienna now has more recalls than the T&C AND the Pacifica since 2015. Heck, I think you can add Sedona to the mix too and that would still be equal to or less recalls than the Sienna.

2016 Kia Sedona SX w/ Tech or 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus with Tow and Tech? That is my conundrum.
