A solid feeling car but...

2009 Toyota Sienna XLE 7-Passenger 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We purchased a 2009 Sienna XLE in October. I never thought to ask if it was winterized. With the first dusting of snow I skidded around, and found out the antilock brakes do work. My windows are frozen shut, it is 20 degrees here, but will be getting much colder. So I came home and got into my 13 yr old Ford Windstar, that I did not slide and the windows are not frozen, even though it too is sitting outside. I guess the all "season tires" that are OE need replaced for the winter. And I will have to be sure it is winterized. The dealers said you can't special order. It seems that for $30,000 you shouldn't have to "settle
Love the steering wheel controls and duel climate control controls.
It would be nice to be able to purchase the options you want. I wanted cloth seats, but ended up with leather. I would have bought an LE but didn't like the front tray used instead of the console. OE tires that are truly all season. Lubricated locks and windows, as they shouldn't be frozen, yet.
