I used to know I was in a parking spot when I heard a light, "Bang," and my car jolted back and forth.
Now I know I'm in a spot because I can SEE out the back end of my Toyota. It's like there are two of me and while one of us is driving, the other is showing me how much space is left as I back up perfectly.
The other thing I love about the Toyota Sienna is the automatic doors. One click, doors open and all my kids climb in or out. They never have to touch the door allowing me comfort knowing a finger isn't going to get stuck. If it did, the sensors in the sliders, open immediately. I accidently tested this when my ten year old shut the doors not knowing my head was in the way. It closed gently on my skull (nice huh?) and immediately opened so I could bolt upright unharmed and yell at him for not warning me before he clicked the close button.
I also like the fold-down seats, the DVD and the navigation system (which by the way, I've tried them all from other car makers, and Toyota/Lexus hands down have the best navigation system I've ever tested. So user friendly (I'm location-direction-retarded) that once you get used to having one (this one)...you'll never want a car without it.
Some Moms laugh at me as they drive off in their 'Cool SUV's."
When in reality, who's the smartest Mommy now?
