What's considered 'high mileage'?

We've got a 2004 Sienna with 94,000 miles on it. This is our vacation/highway ride, since it's big enough for the family and all our junk.

Normally, when a vehicle gets close to 100k miles, I start getting a little hesitant about long highway trips,but this thing has been super reliable and I've done all the maintenance on it. Can't really afford to replace it within the next year or two anyway.

Just wondering what people consider "old and high mileage" for the Sienna?

Today's vehicles can go +200k miles if proper maintenance is performed, especially Toyotas.

That's a highly variable thing, whether it's a Sienna or not. I agree with typesix that a properly maintained vehicle today (IMO, though, especially Toyota, Honda, or Nissan) can easily make 200K. What people's driving style is another major factor.

we traded our 2002 van with 123K for a 2008 with 48K because mama did not feel comfortable taking a long trip with that many miles, reason we traded for the 2008,

The 2002 was the best vehicle we have ever owned

she likes the 2008 model much better, bigger, more power, better mpg, shorter turning circle, rides and drives better.

To me, somewhere in the over 18-20K miles per year is "high mileage". Most leases are based on about 12K miles/year for comparison. As long as the vehicle is properly maintained (wear items for instance) there is no reason to think it should spontaneously break down once you cross 100K miles.

You're just getting started!

We just returned from a long trip in our '98, and I wrote a Trip Report in a separate post which you can find here if interested:
Road Trip Report - 98 Sienna (longevity?)

I realize your '04 is a different powertrain than our '98, but I have to believe that at 94,000 miles you're just getting started, and you should comfortably expect another hundred thousand miles of worry-free driving, if only because you've been good about doing all the maintenance on it. I can't answer your question about what constitutes "high mileage" in a Sienna, but can definitely say that at 94,000, you're not there yet. Hit the road and enjoy your summer travels!

As long as it is up to date on maint. items you should never have to worry. The main concern to me on the 04 and up models is to make sure your timing belt is replaced by no later than 100k miles and do the water pump too while their in there. These engines are interference motors and will cause tons of damage if either of these parts fail. If your overly cautious like me you may want to replace the idler pulleys, cam and crank seals and oli pump seal and o-ring as well.

I don't think you can say it's high miles until it's over 150K

I am currently at 224,000 on our 2004. No major issues with drive-ability. although the passenger power slider no longer powers due to broken cable. I intend on keeping it for at least another 100K.

200K miles is nothing for a Toyota. My neighbor has Grand Caravan with 350,000km. Thats about 230K miles. He is still driving it with out any engine problem. Minor things like brakes, oil, etc you have to do in any case.

Hondas are also built like the same. But the same can NOT be said about any other Asian car brand - be it Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi or Kia.

High mileage

We just took a trip from Kansas City to Wash. D C and back with three
gr kids. Our 04 Sienna has 120k on the clock. Ran Castrol Synthetic
5 w 20 for the first time. I was in a hurry so the needle stayed at
70 - 75 for the most part with an occasional 80 now and then. Oil looks like new when we got home and the van ran great.

My 1998 Sienna XLE has 507,900 kms on it. I'm debating whether to get a new timing belt on it. Everything else is working fine. I had to get a new radiator a few months ago so I'm hesitant to let the van go. Hmmm...
