Not a minivan gal till now

2006 Toyota Sienna LE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I have the Sienna LE AWD. My mileage is not the best compared to the LE, but I also take my van places most don't attempt. Having AWD I feel much more comfortable with my son's friends and their moms out in the woods, or in the snow, or on sand!! It's smooth, fun and safe to drive. I was disappointed with the fact that there was not any bargaining room with the cost - I was told that only the LE, I could have bargained with. I went from driving small cars to now a vehicle I swore I'd never drive (minivan). I love it, and my son really does. And gosh - he's now extremely safe. Thank you Toyota.
Room, room, room. Ease of converting the seating arrangements.
It would be nice that some of the bells and whistles that other vans offer would be on the LE. Examples: navigation, DVD, and mostly, an OnStar type service.
