We bought used, had one of these in the past. I got into a bad accident had 3 surgeries. I can honestly say that this vehicle saved my life. The over the sholder automatic belts are annoying but a good safety feature. Great job on including drivers side airbag. The van is built pretty solid, 3,500lb. towing/cooling and suspension package. Nice sun roof, great gas mileage. I truly only like this vehicle because it's the Nautica edition. I am not a fan of the other models but I do say buy one anyday before a Ford Windstar or Dodge Caravan. This Nautica along with other Villagers have a Nissan 3.0L high efficiency output motor and are more reliable and better on fuel. Very reliable, great van!

If you are thinking about buying one
of these things, let me give you two
words of advice: RUN AWAY. I bought
my villager with about 65,000 miles on
it, and it now has about 105,000
miles. In that time period, I have
replaced 2 water pumps ($250 each), 2
cv boots ($120 each), had a fuel
vacuum leak ($800 to track it down
over several months), a fuel pump
replaced ($250), a thermostat replaced
($100), a radiator ($324), and an a/c
hose ($300). Also, the ignition switch
is defective (it locks me out at the
time of its own choosing). If that
isn't enough, the parts inside the van
are always falling apart.
