1996 Mercury Villager 3 Dr GS Passenger Van Review
This van has a durable powertrain and excellent drivability.
You will most likely experience electrical issues with this van.
If You Can Find A Good One, Its A Great Buy. — I love this van. I've loved since I picked it up second hand in '99. It has one quality that makes you forgive a lot of other faults, the Nissan 3.0L Maxima V6! While low on HP compared to modern contemporaries, the van is silky smooth. Like many Fords,it has some electrical issues that have been present most of the time I've owned it. The fold and slide seat was innovative for its time, the removable bench is heavy and cumbersome. Its better than removable seat vans, but not nearly as handy as a fold away seat. The third seat slides forward to replace the 2 person bench to make a 5 seat hauler. Integrity has been a problem since the van crossed the decade mark, but it has been very durable so far. Rust is becoming an issue, but the van is 15 years old. Water leaks have been a problem as the van ages. Handling is still very good, the van hauls people and cargo well and is a good light duty tow vehicle.
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Gets Us There.
There are better minivans. Sort of in the way that there were better wars than WWI. This van is easy to maintain and burns ZERO oil. The car is about as much fun to drive as a brick with wheels. Read More

A Soccer Mom's Dream Ride
This five door Mercury Villager is a spacious ride with plenty of leg and head room to accommodate the largest of soccer players. The cargo area is large enough to store an entire teams equipment. It... Read More
