Years ago, I bought used cars and fixed em when necessary. I dont do that now, I buy new. Why? Because it makes sense. Sienna's, at least for a year or 2, currently dont have "depreciation" (unless you pay well above msrp), but rather are worth more than used. Why pay more for a used car than new? I dont. The Sienna is hybrid only starting in 2021.
So, if you want the hybrid, you need to either get a 21 or newer, or find an older hybrid sienna. And, the first year (2021) there are often bugs to work out. Its a no brainer to get NEW sienna, if you are looking for a low mileage hybrid mini vs used. I ordered my Sienna in Oct. and will pick up the first week in Dec., so the order time has shortened. In my area, you are unlikely to find a new Sienna on the lot, they are sold as soon as they arrive, and mostly before the car even arrives.
I was called yesterday to inform me that a buyer on a red XLE backed out, and did I want it. I drove right to the dealer ship, (15 minutes), and the car was sold. He showed me the paperwork, the car lasted 11 minutes on the lot. No doubt, car salesman have a list of people who want a sienna who are waiting. So, they made a call (just like my salesman) and they gave a credit card deposit over the phone..in 11 minutes. Its no wonder these sell so fast. Its the only all wheel drive minivan that gets 30 plus miles per gallon "except" the Chrysler, which has to be plugged in to do that. Its a hassle to plug it in, most of the time you need a 220 outlet (unless you want very slow charging), and thats not free, and, its not always convenient to wait till it charges. Hybrids solve "range anxiety" problems, and are the sweet spot in between electric and gas only. They have great mileage but less hassle charging.
The XLE is my choice of trim. Sure Platinum is better, but I dont want to spend thousands on that stuff, much of which isnt needed. The XLE offers quite a bit of an upgrade from LE. It has the softex seats, as I didnt like the Camry hybrid LE with cloth seats I just sold. Comfort is important to me, and the cloth were not that comfortable.
