1993 Toyota Previa Deluxe All-Trac 3dr Minivan AWD
This van is the best I have ever owned, and I have gone through five different vans! I have three kids and as another person wrote- the interior holds up magnificently! The only thing I would change about the interior is I would put a better console in the front for soda/ etc. The one on the floor is a little low. A store bought one suffices. I LOVE the seats and how they recline, slide back and forth, turn all the way around and LOCK IN PLACE! I love it! Love it! I love all the room there is when you pack the back seats up and I love that I never have to remove them from the van. It is SO simple! I have not put any money into this van other than maintenance.
Mid Row seating that turns all the way around. Back seating that lays flat OR folds into the seat. All seats are completely maneuverable in all directions. I also love the dashboard!
It tends to smell like oil when it is shut off after long trips. It's never dripped a drop tho. EVER.
We bought this minivan new after our previous Previa was forced off the road and rolled. 4 of us walked away with one minor cut. After that I wouldn't buy anything but another Previa. We haven't had any major repairs other than the normal maintenance. There have been so many great family memories associated with this Previa. It handles so well in our winter mountain road driving. It was the first choice for all our ski trips and forest road camping trips. We could get 4 adult sized mountain bikes and 4 adults inside, so nothing got dusty or wet on our back road trips. Love it still! This has by far been the most reliable and fun vehicle we have ever owned.
Safety. Huge interior space. Handles well for winter driving. Extremely comfortable for long road trips. Best vision for any car I've driven, and I have done a ton of test driving.
I bought this car brand new in Oct. 1992. The only services required are tires, wiper blades, brakes, battery, air filter, oil and filter. I also had a 60K service at 10 years and asked them to change all the hoses. 17 years, AC is still going strong without any service. Plenty of interior space and leg space. Only complaint is when fully loaded, it becomes sluggish - after all this is a V4.
3rd row seats flip up easily for extra room. 2nd row seats can be removed to create more room.
Cup holders for 2nd row and 3rd row. 2nd row seats can be flipped up or lay down flat to create more space instead of removing it.
