I've had this van for 11 years and it
is still jammin right
along. Rust proofing is the key in
Hawaii but there has been no major
mechanical problem.It turns on a dime.
Great viewing from all seats. I kept
it so long because I love the wave
shaped (or W shaped some call it
dashboard. I wish all mimni SUV's ( my
next car now that my kids are grown)
had it. It's marvelous, feels
spacious, the glove compartment could
be a mini ice chest! And when i'm the
passenger I rest my feet up on
it, it's so perfect. Hard to clean
inside of windshield, it's quite a
reach but worth it. And to keep it
defrosted in the rain here I had to
put the air conditioner on it.

one is 10-year old).

I too, purchased a Toyota Previa years ago (1993)and have found it extremely reliable! We now have almost 205,000 miles on it. We don't really want to give it up, but the reality is staring us in th...
