I have had the same problem with my 2007 Sienna yet Toyota says there is nothing wrong with the van and that is how it runs.
I have had the van since new. I know when there is something not working right. The van slows down quicker than it used to and makes a faint grinding/rubbing sound when I remove my foot from the accelerator until it hits about 20mph and then it seems to stop making the noise and coast normally.
I used to take my foot off of the accelerator when coasting down a hill as I would always end up picking up speed. Now the van slows down when going down a hill as if I'm pulling an anchor.
Today when I got home and put it in park the van started to roll down my driveway.
Nothing wrong with Toyota????
#59 of 60 No Transmission Flush !!!!

We are the original owners of a 2008 Sienna Limited. The vehicle has 130,000 miles without a single problem. I just took the vehicle to the dealer for a transmission flush and he told me not to have it done. I've never heard of such a thing! They said the trans would go over 200.000 easily and if I've never had it done it could cause more damage by having the work performed. Has anybody else been told this. Thanks

Your service manager is correct. Toyota only recommends a true flush as a way of cleansing the system of shrapnel in the event that your transmission self destructs and contaminates the lines and the cooler in the radiator.
Link to the TSB on my cloud site:
Recommended service is the "4 quarts at a time method".
