1993 Toyota Previa Q&A
1993 Toyota Previa Question: Sell or keep?
We have had and loved our ’93 Toyota Previa for about 8 years. It has 183,000 miles on it, and I am trying to decide whether to sell it or not. It has 3 problems that I know of. 1. Starter Motor – I can replace it myself. $140 2. Slips a bit when accelerating after having just shifted into 2nd and 3rd. Clutch? But if so why only in 2nd and 3rd? $1,000? 3. I’m guessing it needs a timing chain since we’ve owned it for 90,000 miles. $700? Given that the above approaches $2,000 maybe it’s time to sell. I’d appreciate any comments/suggestions. - Miguelito100
The van is almost 17 years old. If you have the funds I would get a newer and better van. once you fix what you know is wrong with it, due to age and mileage something else will require attention. - mahindra
Our 1996 Toyota Previa LE S/C AWD lasted until timing chain slipped off chain gear at 285,000 miles. It's been a great van and from my reading and experience I don't feel there is a better van on the market. These can still be imported from Japan. - Synectic
