Great Van!!!! — Performance: This generation of the Mercury Villager had the Nissan V6 engine. It turned out to be pretty reliable and extremely quiet compared to the Chrysler Town & Country. Build Quality: Wasn't the best but definetly better than some minivans with sorry/sad build quality. Appearance: Isn't bad. I've seen worse. Cost of Ownership: Is average like any other vehicle aournd that age. It is a very reliable vehicle though.

Primary Use: Family transportation

check engine light

I've Had It 10 Years- Was Band And Scout Mom — This has been our family vehicle for years, no complaints whatsoever! Broke down once and towed it to the repair shop to find out the plug wire came off. The check engine light came on a couple of weeks after I bought it and it went on recall for a gasket, it's the hego switch and because there are 4 of them I don't worry about it.
