1992 Toyota Previa LE 3dr Minivan
This is a fantastic van. My family bought the car used in 1995, and I inherited it as my first car after high school. It took us cross-country 3 times and up and down both coasts. Unfortunately, it just blew a head gasket at over 300,000 miles. I don't have the money to rebuild the engine, so this Previa's days are done. :-(
The Previa always had some electrical problems with the interior lights and the moonroof, but those were minor. Other then a repair bill of 3,000 in 2003 I believe, it's been low-maintenance. Truly a spectacular car.
Cargo capacity, reliable road-trip car, tight turning radius, handles well in rain, can get good mpg if you drive 55mph on the freeways.
Gets stuck in anything (wet grass), poor mpg in city and in regular freeway use.
