We are currently in the market for a new vehicle – in fact our lease expires at the end of September, so we only have a couple of months left to make our decision. The big question is of course, SUV or minivan? The minivan wasn’t even on the list. I was NOT going to be the mother that drove a minivan. I refused.
No one would ever catch me dead in a minivan.
And then I met the Toyota Sienna 2013 Limited. You guys, this vehicle is not the minivan from our childhood. It’s a dream to drive and is outfitted with pretty much everything you could ever want or need in a family vehicle. The side sensors that alert you when someone’s in your blind spot? Genius. And the space… I’m still mourning the loss of space since we gave this loaner back. The trunk has more space than any of the other vehicles I’ve driven, yes even with all of the seats up!
If you’ve been toying with the idea of purchasing a minivan for your family (or even if you haven’t and loath the idea), you must watch this video, because it just may change the way you feel about those so-called mommy vans.
