1996 Toyota Previa LE All-Trac 3dr Minivan AWD

Review

Nothing comes close for sheer usable space. Visibility and handing are great. At 170000 miles, it needed a drive shaft but a good independent garage made that a $400 repair instead of the $1000 the dealer wanted. Hope it goes another 170000. If you can find one for $10K get it because Previa owners alone know just what a gem these are. Hard to work on, but needs work so seldom: caution Toyota parts cost a bunch and no one else offers parts. Replaced the muffler (a generic) for $70 when Toyota wanted $300. Wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country in winter. AWD gets 26 mpg on the highway. Gets a 9.5 overall.

Best Features

Folding rear seats making refonfiguring a snap. Leather seats look new after 8 years. Handles like a small car, so easy to park, and fits in a small garage--something the new Sienna won't do.

Worst Features

The spare tire is exposed to the elements and is hard to access, but no different than many vehicles.
