Toyota Sienna AAS (Auto Access Seat)

If you want a reliable, safe, and stylish vehicle that has the added bonus of providing an automated access seat to assist disabled passengers, this is it. The integrated access seat feature is available as an integrated option if you want to special order with Toyota, but many dealerships around the country likely have at least 1 or two either on their lot, or available at another nearby Toyota dealership.

What does this mean for you? No special order, no long wait.

The Auto Access Seat provides a very smooth (no bounciness or shakiness at all) and secure extension out of the vehicle with a slight rotation and tilt back to protect the passengers head and then descends to within about 19” of the ground for easy transition from a wheelchair, walker, cane etc. The easy one touch remote allows a caregiver, parent, or passenger to extend and retract the vehicle safely, slowly, and with the ability to pause at any time if needed.

We love that this option is integrated and seamlessly blends in with the rest of the Toyota accessories and doesn’t look like an add-on or different in any way. The AAS is a captains bucket type seat with arm rests on both sides and an additional foot rest if needed. The additional built in safety features offer you the comfort of knowing that the vehicle will not come out of the park position to drive if the AAS seat isn’t securely in place.

Overall, you get the roomy interior, comfort and style features of the model you select with the added bonus of this ability option that is helpful for anyone needing a little help in or out of a vehicle and would accommodate children or an adult up to 330 lbs.

We give this integrated option a 5 out of 5.

Additionally, this solution would be ideally suited for the rental car industry. We feel this is a breakthrough in the industry as Toyota's AAS solution is the only one of its kind integrated by the car manufacturer and backed by the original manufacturer's warranty.

If your doctor prescribes any special ROM (Range of Motion) exercise programs, equipment, or mobility assisting devices (ie… hospital bed, power wheel chair, walker, automotive and home modifications, pool and spa additions, pool and spa lifts) it could qualify as a medical tax write off (consult your tax professional).
