Used Sienna or Caravan
3. Overall cost of ownership
I am considering getting a 2006 Sienna with approximately 40k miles for about $13k (based on listings on the internet). My primary reason for picking this model is that it comes with standard side and curtain airbags. Additionally I want low miles to maximize the life of the vehicle.
I am considering my alternatives in the Dodge Caravan world. These are the prices I see:
2006 Toyota Sienna 36k miles -- $13k
2008 Dodge Caravan 19k miles -- $13k
2006 Dodge Caravan 36k miles -- $9k
Hence for $13k, I can get a much newer Caravan. Alternatively I can get an equivalent mileage/year Caravan for only $9k.
What is my best option given the three concerns above? I am not very concerned with quality of ride or internal fittings/space.
