I love my 95 supercharged rear wheel drive Toyota Previa. In my humble opinion, I would say one of the very best vehicle ever made in history. She has been very reliable and continues so till this day and for that reason I'm sold on this baby. we use it for transporting family, shopping, commuting and so on and so forth and has never failed us. This timeless machine is a future classic that can easily outrun most up to date vehicles on the road today {late July 2014} how many other cars can you say the same about? I bet not many! Anyways I'm very happy and I want to thank the brilliant engineers at Toyota for creating such a masterpiece.

We got a 1996 S/C used ten years ago and it now has 200,000 miles on it and it is doing great. there was an electrical shortage afew years ago, but other than that, it has done well. the handling is great due to the mid-engine rear wheel drive design and performance is good for a 2.4L engine, and the supercharger does help. It is a timeless beast. We don't drive it as much, and its been in the garage, but well maintained.

OUTSTANDING VEHICLES!

I'm on my third one. First two were totaled in side collisions, and I walked away from both without a scratch! I live in FL, and when my sister in OR was looking for a vehicle, I found one on the internet near where she lives. She is thrilled with it's handling and cargo hauling abilities. All three of mine have been extremely reliable. I recently took a cross country trip in mine, and put over nine thousand miles on it without a hitch. I wouldn't hesitate going anywhere in mine, without a moments notice. Toyota still makes this basic design, and sells them in many countries. I've seen them for sale in Australia. The one thing I would reccomend, is getting one with the supercharger! This configuration provides more power and torque.

I've owned a 92 and now a 97. First one kept until 175000 miles then sold it. 2nd one plan to keep forever - currently at 133K. The car is fantastic! I pull the seats out and can haul massive amounts of "stuff" in the back including taking the kids back and forth to college every year. I've had full size couches completely in with the door closed. With the captains chairs in the back every one has "space" so you don't feel cramped. Car rides like a dream and never fails you. I too wished they still built these vehicles. If you need a reliable van, you will not be disappointed.

I have owned 2 Previa's and I put 180,000 miles on the first one and more than 200,000 on the second one which I still drive every day. Both were extremely reliable and other than a battery, brakes, tires and oil changes, you'll never have to worry about anything. I wish they still made them today.

Medicinal Comfort For Back Injury Pain!

The most comfortable seats ever, accomodating tall people, small people and even very large people! Never so much "cargo space" in my full-sized, customized, American vans! Easy access side door and rear door, and for loading rear in the rain, hydrolic lift back door keeps everything dry "under it". Front floor for front seats dips several inches lower than rest of van for easy entry in and out without having to "hike" oneself up and in... Drives like a car with almost a 360 degree view for the driver! We bought two.
