I bought one of these trustee old toyota vans, three years ago, for about $1800.oo. It had about 160000 miles on it. I drove it for three years, took it to 200000 miles, and during that time, did a few oil changes, replaced struts, shocks, and brakes. It never "needed" anything, other than the...

TWO AND A HALF YEARS AGO EVERYONE WAS LAUGHING AT ME? WHY? BECAUSE I BOUGHT A MINI-VAN WITH 200K MILES ON IT. I paid $2000, which could have been a good down payment for a brand new vehicle. These were my reasons:
(a) It was a Toyota
(b) It had great reviews here on 'epinions'
(c) It... Read full review »

Pros Tons of interior room, reliability, dash layout
Cons Slightly underpowered, engine noise, bad handling in snow or slippery conditions,

This was, I think, the first brand-new car my parents bought when I was very young. I have grown up in it and it has been an awesome car. I can just barely remember back to when every thing still worked like the rear seat air-conditioner and the fan speed position(only works on high now), but those... Read full review »

Pros It keeps going and going
Cons the A/C is underdesigned, paint is beginning to wear

When we bought this van in 1991 I never dreamed we would still be driving it. It is a member of our family. We now have 350,000 miles on it without a major problem, except an accident that isn't the van's fault. The only complaints I have had with the van is the A/C which seems underdesigned and...

Pros Large interior space and Toyota dependability.
Cons Ride/noise level is fair. 4-cyl engine can be weak.

We purchased this van a few years ago, when this van had about 80k miles. Happy that we made the purchase. This van has been tremendously reliable (typical of Toyota's) and has the most interior space of any van that we've looked at. I was initially hesitant about a minivan with only a four...

We got our van new in 1991 and it is still going strong. We have 290,000 miles on it.
We had to have some rear end work and the belts changed once. Brakes, tires, normal stuff, but nothing much else.
The interior takes abuse because we have two small children. The sliding door mechanism... Read full review »

Around this time minivans were just becoming popular and we just had to have one. We finally decided on the LE series Previa, which was... Read full review »

We purchased our 1991 Previa LE new and have put over 200,000 miles on it. We bought it because we were impressed with its car-like handling, spacious interior and functionality (especially the fold-down rear seats). We got the "captain seats" in the middle and they have been very comfortable --... Read full review »

We purchased our 1991 Toyota Previa van a little over four years ago. It has been worth every penny we financed! We chose the LE model as shown in the picture with both a sun roof and moon roof. The middle seats are captain's chairs instead of a bench-type seat. I was not sure I would like the... Read full review »

We bought our Previa new in 1991, after having owned 2 Ford Aerostars and having problems with them, our mechanic suggested the Previa. What a great suggestion that was! This has been the most reliable vehicle we've ever owned. We're very careful about performing regular maintenance on the van and... Read full review »

When I bought my 1991 Previa in Feb. of 98, it already had 129,000 miles on it. Knowing from previous experience how reliable and long-lasting Toyota's are, we took the chance (and got a great deal because of the miles). It now has 165,000 miles on it, and is still going strong.

We had been Volkwagen bus aficionados for several decades so when we were
