    1996 Mercury Villager 3 Dr GS Passenger VanReview

    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.)

    Pros: This van has a durable powertrain and excellent drivability.

    Cons: You will most likely experience electrical issues with this van.

    Mercury Villager By Nicholas

    It does the job, acceleration and braking are good, handling okay. When i'm stopped at a light though, the dash board squeaks, and well maybe i've backed into some things, it was my mom's old car. Gas... Read More
