Toyota Estima 30 & 40 series

customer feedback

1996 Mitsubishi Legnum VR-4

Just thought I'd shoot you an email to let you know that the Legnum arrived last friday and I have been driving it since. Gotta say its easily the best handling and performing wagon I have ever driven, and everything is as I was expecting it to be. So thanks for all the help, I appreciate it as I had no experience with imports prior to this.

As someone who had previously never imported a car, I found dealing with J-Spec to be quick, easy and most importantly informative. Any questions I had were answered (and these were quite extensive thanks to my need to know everything about everything!) and all cars brought to my attention matched my criteria well.

Pics and info for:

Toyota Estima (CR30 / CR40 Series)

The Estima (known locally in Australia as a Tarago) was an incredibly popular vehicle for Toyota, and with good reason given their excellent features and value for money. Toyota's flagship people mover came with 7 or 8 seat layout, and a 2.4L 4 cylinder or 3.0L V6 engine choice, plus 2WD or 4WD available with both engines. A petrol/electric Hybrid version is also available with the 2.4L variant.

The 2.4L 2WD set up is the same as locally available Taragos for those who want easy parts availability, however Estimas come with more luxury options and have usually done significantly lower mileage.

Available features can include:

Climate control Power sliding doors
Up to 3 parking cameras ABS brakes
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) Steering wheel shift buttons
Stability control Cruise control
Xenon headlights Parking sensors
Power driver's seat Dual airbags
Dual sunroofs Keyless entry

2000 - 2005 models are eligible for import in 2.4L and 3.0L engines, and 2WD or 4WD layout.
