Toyota Previa 2.4i GS 4d Auto (1996/N) - Owner Review

Commanding driving position means that you look down on everyone else. Very easy to drive, especially considering it is so huge. Very light power steering. Column shift auto box is easy - never buy a manual as they are dire.

Value

Fantastic amount of car for the money.

Costs

2 out of 5

Be prepared for woeful mpg. Staggering repair costs if they go wrong, which thankfully isn't very often.

Performance

3 out of 5

Not bad, considering its size. Great motorway eater, the miles just slip by.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Toyota - can't beat it, except for the brakes which need tlc.

Image

3 out of 5

It is an MPV, who cares about image. However, as it is the size of a small truck it is a bit more imposing on the road.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Big armchairs in the front and a couple of sofas in the back. Can seat 8, very comfy for 6 (with all their luggage).

Use a specialist as they are cheaper and just as good.

Brakes need watching. Wiper blades are frighteningly expensive and rust around rear wiper where it attaches to the bodywork.
