I am a Toyota fan through and through having previously for 10 years owned a muched love spacecruiser. i changed to a 2.4 petrol previa just 8 months ago and it is an all round superb drive with excellent comfort. although the econmomy side is a little harsh what do you expect if you want luxury , you have to pay for it. i do around 18 to 20 thousand miles a year and in the 8 months i have owned my 1998 previa with 168.000 miles on the clock have not put any oil or water or done anything to the car at all. And the service now due at toyota bristo`s main dealer is £186. not beaten i am affraid. superb and loving every minute driving it.
we have had this previa for six years and travelled 60k miles. recently however the turbo charger has blown. we were advised that this is very rare. Still we intend to look after the car and keep itas its so wonderful.
I have owned this car since April 2005, it was just over 3 yars old with 24,000 miles on the clock, and boy, do I wish I got one before. This is such a versatile motor, not only is it great to drive, (my wife often race's me to grab the key), it's practical too. We got the eight seat 2.4 petrol version, as we often have five passengers to take with us, and a trailer for the camping gear, and we hardley know it's there. When we go into the city we often see a surprised face or two when pulling away from traffic light's, and have upset the occaisonal 'boy racer' by overtaking them when least expected to. Overall this car is a joy to drive and I wish Toyota would release the Mark3 to the UK soon as it would be THE car I would buy from new if I could
This MPV is the best in it's class and has done everything I could ask. With 5 kids between us and needing to haul a double axle trailer or a boat, this car has never failed. We opted for all the extras and even had 17" rims and tyres. We've only just started to regret the latter and, apart from usual servicing and comsumables, have only had to replace the water pump. A great, reliable car.
