We want to get a new car before or shortly after LO2 arrives EDD 9.5.13 for mobile. I think we have finally settled on the Toyota Sienna but have no idea what trim level we should go with. Anything other than the very highest 40K version is in our price range. If we do a less expensive one we can pay the car off faster and replace DH's car sooner. However, we drive our cars forever before replacing so I want to make sure we get something we'll be happy with for a long time. The car I am replacing is 15 years old to give you an idea of how we do things!
So particularly if you have a minivan, what options do you really like? Which are not necessary? Is there anything you wish you had but don't?
FYI we are going with a minivan because we will most likely try for a third LO in a few years. We also have two dogs and road trip with them about 5 times per year to see my family 6 hours away. Plus we take several driving vacations to the beach, etc every year and we often take either my SIL or our nanny along.
