2011 Toyota Sienna: School Bus and Luck

June 07, 2011


Yes, another blog about stuff in the Sienna. But for me, this was unplanned. I just happened to be lucky enough to drive the Sienna when I was in need of cargo space.

I bought a mirror a week or so ago. When was hanging said mirror last night, I noticed very small cracks in the glass. There is no real way I would have gotten this 55 lb monster into my car or my wife's car easily. Yes, our Sienna saved the day.

But when I was walking back to the van from exchanging the mirror in the store, I focused on the reflectors at the lower corners of the rear bumper. The more I looked at them, the cheaper they appeared. These were the smaller versions of the reflectors I see on school buses around here. I bet I could find this at a bike store as a part intended to attach to the spokes of a little kid's bike.


I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so am I the only one that doesn't like this design feature? Am I being way too picky?
