Well, after looking everything over and comparing prices versus available options we finally settled on the one that was the color we wanted. Yes, the color. The sienna was so well matched against the odyssey that it was a difficult choice. We could get everything we wanted for both vehicles at a price we could afford. The honda would have needed some dealership installed options but the sienna had them included in the xle model with package #5. The price would have been about the same. So, it came down to the color and I got to choose.

Toyota Sienna XLE 2007, mirage blue metallic, package #5 (heated leather seats, power doors, dvd player for the kids, in dash 6 cd changer) And, importantly, no run flat tires. I'm ready to go on a road trip.

Candi, you got all the options I didn't get (mine is a lowly LE), and about 50 hp more as well (new engine for 2007)... and you're towing a trailer half the weight of mine. Should be a nice ride!

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

My bestfriend has a Kia Sedona and he's had it for 3 or 4 years. Decent vehicle and the only complaint is gas mileage. This is from the opinion of someone who has never towed anything, other than his out-laws.

M2C!

Yes, I guess I'm a little spoiled! I had loads of fun haggling with the salespeople, though. I did a lot of research so I had some info going in, a big plus. I stuck to my guns and got the salesman to lower the price $4,000 from the sticker price, still a little bit of a profit for them (though they acted like they got nothing out of it, I knew better). The finance charge (apr) was a little higher than I wanted to pay but still lower than they first offered. By making a good down payment to lower the monthly rate and no charge for possible early payment we didn't do too bad. Our poor GMC Jimmy will now get a needed break, it's worked hard for us these last twelve years and deserves a needed rest, in town driving only from now on and no more long trips.

Did I mention how much fun negotiating with the salespeople was?Yes I guess I did. Anyone looking for someone to buy a car for them? Haggling is quite enjoyable!

I think there is a new topic wanting to be hatched.
