Didn't intend to spend that much when we bought it 5 years ago but it's been worth it. This is my 7th Toyota and it has been just as reliable as all the others. And when I say reliable I don't mean how some people mean it. It now has over 64500 miles and I just changed the brakes, tires at 40000, and air filters every 30000, nothing else on it has ever been replaced. The only thing the 2 dodge grand caravans I've had over this vehicle is interior volume.

The inside could be a couple inches wider from the rear door to the front seats. A 4x8 sheet of plywood really messes up the interior. Could also be at least 6 inches longer from the backs of the front seats to the rear door. A 4x8 sheet doesn't fit inside with the door closed.
