It’s a done deal. We drove home a 2011 Toyota XLE. She’s is dressed in predawn gray mica color and equipped with premium package which includes smart key, DVD and navigation system. I initially wanted the SE for its sporty look, but this is a family minivan so comfort plays a much bigger role. Big props to my wife who had done all of the research so the negotiation was much faster and smoother since we knew exactly what we were looking for. We didn’t buy any extra warranties even though the manager tried his best to hook us in. I learned my lesson 7 years ago when I purchased my Acura TL so I didn’t fall for that trap again. Toyota is running a special promotion through Twitter. We’re going to use that $500 for our next purchase, which is a big screen TV so my wife won’t need to squint anymore on an old-ass tube.
