1992 Toyota Previa LE All Trac 2.4 from North America
Toyota. Well built to last
It has been a very reliable car, no problems, only normal wear and tear with the mileage.
Very comfortable; it still handles good for the mileage.
Last month I was thinking of retiring the vehicle, because I suspected the head gasket was bad due to missing and lots of white smoke at start up, but it wasn't the case; the starter went out and replaced it, and it runs real good again. So I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone; it's too hard to break it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The starter wouldn't cause the car to miss or smoke, its used to start the vehicle only!

What was the cause of the "missing and lots of white smoke at startup"? How was that fixed? My '93, after 13 years and 205,000 miles has those symptoms.

At 200,400 miles my Previa needs a new starter. No smoke, but it would not turn over intermittently as if battery were dead (has new battery). Fortunately it acted up at the repair shop today and they were able to diagnos it.
