Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Toyota Previa MPV?
The Previa is a reliable, strong motor that soaks up hard use well. That's good news, but it does make the car an ideal candidate for clocking. So, avoid any models without a full service history.
Otherwise, there's little to worry about, and the engines and gearboxes should give little cause for concern. If the engine is misfiring, it could be caused by a fault in the fuel safety cut-off system - one of the few known problems with a Previa.
