Toyota Factory Installed Auto Access Seat
* * The all-new 2011 Sienna minivan now has a first of its kind in-line factory installed rotating power lift up seat. We proudly call it the Toyota Auto Access Seat (AAS). Toyota is the not only the first manufacturer to offer a factory installed lift seat but we are the only North American automaker to offer this mobility option directly to our customers.
* * The new auto access seat offers a new level of comfort and convenience to anyone who may need a little extra assistance getting in or out of a vehicle. The new Sienna with Auto Access Seat (AAS) provides a much needed transportation solution for caregivers of an elderly parent or spouse with a walking disability, disabled veterans, and parents of a child with a disability.

Some features of the Auto Access Seat
The auto access seat is available on the LE or XLE grade Sienna van manufactured in our Princeton Indiana assembly plant. It offers ease of use with one touch operation from a wireless remote control that minimizes the amount of effort to get in and out of the Sienna. Some of the features include:
* Seat rotation of 90 degrees with a lift capacity of 330 pounds
* It lowers to within 19" from the ground with 4" of side travel and reclines up 24 degrees
* Built-in safety features includes a system override that prevent the seat from functioning if the vehicle is not in the "park" position, if the sliding door is not completely open or if an obstruction is detected
* A single audible beep will indicate normal operation, while two audible beeps indicate an obstruction or other symptom has occurred and ceases operation until remedied
* The all-new Sienna with Auto Access seat meets all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and comes with a comprehensive 3-year / 36K mile factory warranty from Toyota and can be serviced by at Rice Toyota or your local Toyota dealership.
