Best Car I've Ever Owned

Vehicle1992 Toyota Previa LE 3dr Minivan
ReviewThis van has taken us through several 10K+ road trips with not a single mishap. Only once did we have trouble, after 1500 miles driving across Baja California's notorious Hwy 1 (named for the 1 foot deep potholes?). O.K., new shocks. Other than a couple of tune ups, two new batteries, two sets of tires, a set of brakes, and one transmission sensor, we have never had trouble with this sweet van in the 8 years and 100,000 miles we've owned it. I bought a 1994 Previa last month to replace it because of wear and tear on the body - the locks are failing. But the "new" van just doesn't feel right. It may not be worth much at the dealer, but I just can't part with this old family friend
Best FeaturesI love riding shotgun at a slight recline that still leaves room for the kids in back, feet outstretched on the long dash. The middle seat slides back to leave a huge amount of room for passengers. I've loaded plywood and sheetrock without removing the seat, just reclining them.
Worst FeaturesI HATE driving this van in the snow or on black ice, which is rare where we live (Washington State). I once did a 360 at trying to make a right turn at 15 mph in an inch of wet snow. I only wish I could buy a new one. I hear the Sienna is nothing like it. Pity.
