We had one of the original 1998 Siennas, an XLE. Roomy, comfortable and dead reliable, it was a great "car trip" car. For a van, it was relatively small, sleek and sporty-looking. That Sienna got 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway and kept those mileage numbers for 10 years and 100,000 miles. We wanted to buy a new one but the Sienna grew too fat over the years. For us, the Prius v may be just the ticket. It's roomier, wider (I hope) and more modern than our G2 Prii (love the iPod station). And it gets twice the mileage that our Sienna got. What's not to love? When and where can I drive one?
