Why oh why did Toyota abandon this wonderful car?

TOYOTA PREVIA 2.4 GLS 7 seat 5dr Auto (Review date: 28th August '13)

4.5

I love this car. I've had it from new and the post 2000 model is still current in terms of style and interior design. It's done 100,000 miles and carted three kids from babies (now robust teenagers), family, friends, dogs, camping gear, musical instruments, bikes, garden rubbish etc. It's travelled around Europe several times and been to Southern Spain and is very fuel efficient on a motorway, although is just as happy in a stop-start urban environment. It works well on school runs, over speed bumps and fits into tight spaces in car parks. Yes, I am the one who can park right next to a pillar in the multi-storey because I can easily climb into the middle row and let myself out via the sliding doors. Vision is excellent from the high driving position and although there's no denying it's a small bus it certainly doesn't handle like one!

The seats are spacious and I've done many longish journeys with seven adults, OK with 7-up there's not a vast amount of luggage room but there is plenty of leg room which is where current competitor models fail so badly. I drive it mainly with six seats leaving the middle seat in the middle row in the garage. This is probably the one downside of the car in that the seats are heavy and not easy to take in/out but at least you can remove them.

Over 13 years I've had two sets of new tyres, several brake pads and two new batteries but no major mechanical expense although it has had an on/off fault with the catalytic converter sensor for a few years which is going to be expensive to fix.

Every 18mths or so I think about changing this car and each time I start looking I don't see anything I like or love as much or fits my lifestyle. I do dream of owning a grown up car one day but I can't quite kick the practicality of seven decent seats and sliding doors. The car is worth almost nothing second hand but to me it's worth it's weight in gold. It's a complete mystery why Toyota decided to abandon this design.

New Turbo From Toyota

I am very happy with this car but I have six kids and now I need 8 seater. No one can get a better car than Toyota Previa. I am buying 8 seater and I will only buy Toyota because I like Toyota. I still have Toyota Avensis in my house for my casual use.

smooth car

TOYOTA PREVIA 2.4 VVTi T2 7 seats 5dr (Review date: 24th May '11)

Great car and an ideal large family car.

Fun to drive , lost s of space and with ease, good road handling in good weather conditions.Never broke down.

The only downside is high fuel cost, nothing else.alternatively can be converted to autogas, which would be much cheaper to run and also gives you 20% tax reduction, plus free ffrom congestion charges.

Add to it, rising insurance costs as well.

All in all a great family car.

I will never know why Toyota stopped making this model - its roomy, efficient, reliable and has plenty of go when you need it. Whether you are transporting 7 adults or a family of children it has loads of interior headroom and leg space - even in the rear seats and all seats are adjustable. Windows etc can be controlled by the driver and the remote roof mounted DVD is excellent and keep passengers quiet on long journeys.

Best of all, the sliding side doors make entry easy especially in tight parking spaces and prevent denting the next door car!

We transported 4 children in child seats, 3 adults, 2 dogs and a double pram plus lots of associated bags and kit on many long journeys and found it a pleasure to travel!

The Previa suited us down to the ground.

This car is great, it runs and drives like a dream. It is pricey on fuel these days though and in the higher tax bracket.

If you need a big car though you need a big car. This was a great choice for us.
