1996 Toyota Estima Lucida
Super spacious, comfortable, and as always reliable, Toyota's Estima Lucida van packs the same build quality Toyota is world-renowned for! This one owner 1996 Toyota Estima Lucida X-Luxury is one of the cleanest vans we've had come in. This RWD version comes equipped with a 2.4L gas engine and automatic transmission with a mere 56K verified and documented miles. Finished in Toyota's Evergreen Pearl Metallic (751) the exterior of this van is in great shape, lacking any major dings or scuffs from normal daily use. No changes have been made to the exterior in Japan or here, except for the 16" alloy wheels which look sharp compared to the original hub caps. Also equipped with Toyota's Joyful Canopy, a suite of sunroofs that also allows for additional headroom throughout. Attached to the rear of the van you will find the under mirror allowing for more field of vision when reversing. This fun Japanese classic van of yesteryear was also sold stateside which makes service a breeze.
Inside the cabin, the OEM seats are soft to the touch, very comfortable and the rear seats are able to recline 180 degrees forming a bed for those long tiring drives. The upholstered seats lack any rips, tears, or stains, along with the headliner and the carpets. Also included are the hard-to-find OEM floor mats, which along with the rest of the interior are in fantastic condition. The door cards in the front are also in great condition lacking any major scuffs or cracks but would like to note that the sliding door card is missing a clip. To keep you comfortable the automatic climate control blows cold A/C or hot heat, and climate controls are available for the passengers in the rear as well. For those perfect weather days, both driver and rear-seat passengers, have functional sunroofs to enjoy the outdoor climate. The dash is also in great condition lacking any UV damage from its prior life in Japan. We would like to note that there is no radio currently installed in the vehicle, however, all of the OEM wiring is there allowing for the new owner to select one that best suits their needs. Dual SRS airbags are equipped allowing for additional peace of mind. All the rear windows come with a reflective tint for added privacy or security and help with regulating heat during the hot summers.
Similar in layout to the stateside Previa, this midship van is more balanced than your average runabout. The 2TZ-FE four-cylinder powers the rear wheels, is fresh off an oil and filter service, and was offered in the USDM Previa's making future service quick and easy. The automatic gearbox shifts seamlessly and the Lucida, with its tidy dimensions, manages to feel peppy upon acceleration. The 2.4L benefits from a new 12v battery and engine air filter to keep fuel economy at a maximum. The handling is better than most vans too and the ride is comfortable even on rough pavement. The freeway ride is also predictable and the van would make for a good road trip vehicle. The brakes are confident and the power steering is light and on point thanks to a fresh alignment. The lightweight,twelve-spoke alloys are all wrapped in new 16-inch rubber at all four corners. The new Falken tires quiet down the road noise a bit and will last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
