The 2002 Toyota Sienna CE is a five-door minivan with passenger seating for up to seven occupants. The 2002 model features a 3.0-liter DOHC V-6 engine that produces up to 210 hp and 220 foot lbs. of torque. The 2002 Toyota Sienna CE also features a low tire pressure warning system designed to inform you when the vehicle senses a flat tire or low tire pressure. After changing a tire or when filling the tires with air, you may find it necessary to reset the tire pressure warning system to avoid false readings.
