Cloth has seat warmers too. I was surprised.

The Dodge Caravan we had as a loaner when my van was getting fixed had heated cloth seats. And a heated steering wheel. We had it for 10 days over Christmas, when it was cold. Lovely.

Top feature for our next vehicle!

Wow! Maybe it was just the specific vehicles we were looking at, because when I've asked I've been told heated seats only come with leather. I will file that away for future reference.

I always thought this too.

Ugh! I am so safety conscious! But I just now noticed that the 3rd row center in the Traverse does not have a headrest. That means the person in the spot could get whiplash.

That spot will be the least used though. I need to not make it a deal breaker, I am ready to go buy a car and drive it home!

The Chevrolet Traverse won!

We go today and take them my van (please pray it does not overheat on the way) and finalize paperwork.

I am second guessing everything, as I always do. Stop it me!

Almost home last night and thought "why didn't I buy a '17-'19 Odyssey? Why didn't I drive one? (I just drove the '20) This loan is a lot! We can handle it though. But the money saver in me thinks I could have maybe saved $5-10,000.

I know me, I will miss my van a lot for about a week then love the Traverse. I hate change!

Your personality is lovely. People can count on you.

I hope you love your new vehicle.

You get that from all my posts?

You are correct! I am very loyal!

Praise the Lord though, it got there with no issues! (40 minutes away) I was sad to drive away from the dealer and leave my van. If I sat in it I was going to cry. I bet this time next Wednesday I will be fine!

Oh my gosh! I feel guilty for not buying a car from one the of the dealers we first went to. I did call him and tell him we bought a different color but I would give him a good review online and thanked him for his time.
