1989 Toyota Van wagon LE 2.0 from North America
The best purchase I have made in a long time
Since I have had it, all I have had to do is replace the alternator the rear brakes and intall a nice sound system.
It is fully customized, someone stole the television and I am looking to replace it with a DVD player.
I really love this Van. I have had two Aerostars in the past and the same thing happened to both, the transmissions.
So I decided to try my little toy van. It runs good, looks good, and I am looking forward to having it for a very long time.
The body has little rust. The interior is customized, complete with fold down seats. It is a great town car and it is great on gas.
I drive this car all over New York City everyday and it has never let me down.
I bought my van for $500.00 from a salvage yard and it is the best purchase I have made in a long time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Yes, indeedy do, welcome to the club! There's a small, but growing number of us who realize what a special toy these 84-89 LE vans are. Mine is customized as well (a second home on wheels). As part of my job I drive newer "nicer" vehicles all day long, but when I'm done I can't wait to jump in my 87' LE with 222,000 miles on it 'cause it's more comfy & fun to drive, yahoo! Like a cowboy on his favorite horse, an unbeatable combo, zoom, zoom, & giddy-yup!!

Hello, I live in Miami, Florida and I have owned a 1987 Toyota van wagon for 3 yrs now. This truck is a marvel of japanese engineering. I have used it mainly for work purposes, like deliveries, car wash and trips to Georgia, South Carolina and New York. It has over 200,000 miles on it, but starts like a baby everyday I use it to work. I took all the seats out and the rug because they were in very poor conditions, but it is better this way to work inside the van. I will have this van for hopefully a very long time. It is very useful and I take care of it very well.

I am struggling with my silver Toyota 89 LE Van. The starter sometimes does not start and I have to wait hours. I've been under and tapped the sensor; that worked for a while, then I replaced the starter for the 2nd time, and now find out that a lot of the starters are refurbished and not new... aaaargh... I intend to travel the US with it and sleep in it once I have curtains up. I love this van and the turning radius is fantabulous, and I could dance with it too.

I have had exactly the same problem and was also told my 2nd starter was refurbished. I too plan a trip this year.
