Embrace the Previa

by brendan on 04/23/2010

Toyota has had a rough year. Weird floormat recalls, crazy accelerator issues, lots of bad press, and now a recall of both the Sienna minivan and the Lexus GX 460 SUV. They need some help, and I think I know the solution. Bring back the Previa!

When he rolls back to Cleveland... in his Previa
Kid Cudi would be all over the Previa… if they hadn’t stopped selling them after 1997.

That’s right, the Toyota Previa. Has there ever been a sharper looking people mover? I don’t think so. Can the G-Wagen comfortably wrap 7 passengers in Japanese luxury, all while maintaining 18 mpg? No. And the Escalade’s great, if you want to spend $35k. You can pick up a ’95 Previa for a cool $5k. Talk about value.

Think about it. Toyota can kill two birds with one stone. Sienna owners come in for the recall, and you give them a Previa instead. That takes care of your Sienna problem, and you get more Previas on the road – which reminds the world of how beautiful a Toyota can be. It’s a win-win.

    Yo – I don’t have any way of sending you a real email from work and I’m not about to track this down on my phone with the crap reception I have at my desk….so I thought I’d comment it!


    It’s no AMZ but shipping is still free and it’s $17 cheaper.

    I appreciate the tip! I don’t have nearly the sort of patience you give me credit for, though. I pulled the trigger on one of those Seagate drives from AMZ within a couple of hours of our chat. Not unlike how quickly I might pull the trigger on a used Previa, I imagine.

    Dealmac is going on the list. You should check out Camel Camel Camel too, for Amazon. They track pricing and chart out when is best to buy a particular AMZ item. Good Stuff.
