She's only 4 hours and 39 miles old and my first Toyota. I did a lot of research prior, and honestly was expecting more cabin noise and less creature comforts. I was really impressed with the quiet, smooth ride. It is so much quieter than the Colorado Z71 I traded in. My wife was very leery, not her taste, but the ride and interior won her over. I don't drive her Odessy, she doesn't drive my FJ

Got the upgraded sound and head unit (bluetooth, XM), roof rack.. trailer hitch and step boards (black.. not running boards) will be installed next week. Black looks really good on this color.

The only negative I found in the reviews to be fairly accurate is the blind spots. More mirror use and less looking over my shoulder. The backup camera is going to take a while to get used to.

Welcome! Anxious to see the color... Get a pic with a Sandstorm some time and post it up! I am curious to see the difference.

The back-up camera is really great once you get used to it. Pretty soon you'll be confidently parallel parking and the person behind you will be completely freaking out because you will be so comfy getting close while maneuvering, trust me! I have not wanted to scare anyone but it's happened 3 times, including once by a good friend of mine...ok ok that might have been intentional :rofl:

Enjoy it!
