1994 Toyota Previa Minivan LE All-Trac 3dr Minivan AWD
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
1994 Toyota Previa Minivan LE 3dr Minivan w/Supercharger
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
The dual sunroofs.
The spin-around middle row.
The auto-off headlamps.
The fold-away rear seats.
Adjustable headrests in all rows.
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.
Hauling room, great fun to drive in
town. Design thought and simplicity.
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.
Room interior, especially back cargo.
Love the way the seats fold up against
the sides, w/o the hassle of removing
a net or something between the front
seats. Anything you put there slides to
the front when you put on the brakes.
