1994 Toyota Previa Minivan LE All-Trac 3dr Minivan AWD


Review

We bought the '94 at the very beginning of the MY, paid top dollar (probably) and ALWAYS thought we made a terrific decision! The quad chairs offered outstanding comfort and tremendous flexibility. I often used the van as a small truck for mulch, etc, once loading it with three full-size (empty) pallets. I-4 engine was underpowered and also lead to less than optimal fuel economy, but small price to pay for an OUTSTANDING vehicle!


Favorite Features

Quad captains chairs (rotatable) Flip-sideways rear seats Comfortable seats on LooooooooNG trips


Suggested Improvements

Too late now, but ... Better 4-cyl or a 6 (even S/C was doggish) Second side door

1994 Toyota Previa Minivan LE 3dr Minivan w/Supercharger


Review

This car has been nothing but enjoyable...we've had it for 9 years, and have only had to replace the solenoid once. The amount of passenger space, especially rear leg room, is unmatched by any modern minivan. The supercharger gives it the oomph it needs to still be a competitive van. The seat comfort both front and middle row is excellent.


Favorite Features

The dual sunroofs. The spin-around middle row. The auto-off headlamps. The fold-away rear seats. Adjustable headrests in all rows. Smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

Easier removable middle row seats. Better stereo system.

1994 Toyota Previa Minivan LE 3dr Minivan


Review

Bought the 1994 van with 56k. Two tune-ups, a battery, and a starter later it still runs and drives like new with 121,000. Recent new shocks and struts, wow! Indestructible? Maybe. 20 mpg in town, 22.5 mpg highway no matter how it is driven. Easily removable/folding seats allow tons of covered room for hauling. Amazing towing capacity as well.


Favorite Features

Hauling room, great fun to drive in town. Design thought and simplicity.


Suggested Improvements

Supercharger option should have been standard.

1994 Toyota Previa Minivan DX 3dr Minivan


Review

I loved this van! It has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. It now has 190,000 miles on it and is still going and going. Only problem I ever had was something with the brakes - finally was diagnosed as warped drums, which, once fixed, seemed to solve the problem. That happened at 170,000 miles. Gets great gas mileage, is very dependable and roomy inside.


Favorite Features

Room interior, especially back cargo. Love the way the seats fold up against the sides, w/o the hassle of removing them.


Suggested Improvements

a net or something between the front seats. Anything you put there slides to the front when you put on the brakes.
