Background: We bought a brand spanking new Toyota Sienna minivan. Since we purchased 2 months ago, the check engine light has come on 4 times, it has been in the shop a grand total of 5 days. Toyota seems to have no idea why light keeps coming on.

We are going on a 10.5 hour (each way) round trip to IL for thanksgiving. WWYD- take minivan with potential car issues? Or take SUV which is cramped but has no car issues?
