Suffer Sucatash! Sorry, had to get that out of the way!

I have been using the site to find certified used Siennas. I found a 1998 one with under 40,000 miles for $16,500, but it was sold by the time I called. I am planning on looking at a 1998 XLE with about 40,000 miles this weekend that is priced at $18,000. I am a little wary of a 98 because it was the first model year, when most manufacturers are still working the kinks out of a design. However, since its a Toyota... I reccomend the Toyota site, but obviously call before you go to the dealer because the cars move much faster than the site is updated.

Actually, we may wait until April 2002 when the lease on the current van is up. We cannot buy the van and then resell it (dont have $14,000 liquid), and I am afraid of not getting a good trade in price at a dealership. We'll see this weekend.

Good luck! Everyone I know who has a Sienna pretty much raves about it. I like our Grand Voyager, but....the seats are mushy, it is already making weird engine noises, the fit and finish are starting to fall apart, there is wind roar at highway speeds, etc...
