Mom's Taxi Babies Ride
By Joel G on


1997 Toyota Previa LE 3dr Minivan


Sold 86 Toyota Van 285K miles to be replaced with 97 Previa with 1st baby coming in Jun. Perfect to carry 2nd kid in 99. Also carried Mom, Dad, Father-in-law to doctor's appt. Use mostly for reserve weekend duty. Did not change remote bat 6 yrs later. Did reg maint oil/filter chg every 3K. Used in business for 6 yrs as modified pick up truck by removing middle seat & folding 3rd row. Kids love this because they can lie down and sleep and watch tv. Our kids and parents in their 80s enjoyed trips to NY, VA, FL, LA, GA, TN, SC, NC, AL, TX, MA, CO. With this economy we are glad to have Toyotas in our family. Camry 02 replaced 88 Celica. Convinced five younger brothers to get Toyotas. They did.

Best Features

Flexible enough to take to Camp Lejeune NC for 6 years every Easter for military training.

Worst Features

Make a new version of the Previa. Coolant reservoir to radiator needs to be metal not heavy duty plastic. 4 cyl LE SC with 28 mpg will be a Great Buy for my next upgrade. Please hurry.
