That being said, we are thinking of getting a Toyota 4Runner. We haven't ever personally had one, but we hear good things about them. We are looking for a used one with a 3rd row. No, I don't have an announcement but we are thinking we will sometime have at least one more child! The great thing is that there are two seats in the far back but you can attach them up to the sides so you have more room when you're not using them (sorry for the bad explanation).
Well we've found one that we really like that is in our price range with everything we want (well, of course we don't want all the miles but that's what it's gonna have to be given our price range!!).
Up next is where I'm wanting your thoughts. Just for fun, I looked up a Toyota Sienna, aka the Swagger Wagon. If you don't know what I'm talking about, please put that in youtube and you will find out!! So please tell me why is there such a stigma with minivans? Maybe because they aren't the best looking thing ever? And if you have a minivan, I mean no disrespect here at all! I am almost considering one myself! But I have such a hard time imagining myself driving one!! Am I totally vain or what? But they are so PRACTICAL!! Who wouldn't want a dvd player, headphones, navigation, and sliding doors? I mean seriously!! How sweet is all of that? The other kicker is that I found them in our same price range with half the miles and only about a year old or so (depending on all the features of course).
One thing to keep in mind is that we do drive in our fair share of snow. And WY is a pretty snowy place where they often DO NOT plow the roads! For real!! So that is a consideration and another reason we like the 4Runner.
Ok so now give it to me. Thoughts, feelings, what would you do?!! What do you think of vans? What would you think of me if I drove one? Keep in mind it's not just me that has a sort of issue with them. Justin does too!
