This vehicle is underrated and the Nissan/Mercury name has been badly ridiculed. I have owned my Villager for over 14 years and all I can say is $21,000 for this LS model and all is well. My wife owns a Lexus SUV and I paid over $53K a year ago and it has been in the shop 7 times. The Villager we own has 267k miles and has never seen major repair. My cousin and my good friend both have 95 Villagers and all I can say is 289k and 212k miles and the same results. That is a real review.

Very pleased with the van now with 166,000 miles. Bought it in 1998. Just had to retire it today. The transmission is slippin' away. Too expensive to replace. My wife and I wish they still made them. Many fond memories. We'd buy another. It doesn't owe us a thing. Many x-country trips with no problems.

We like our villager so much, we are
looking for a deal on another. Has
112,000 miles. Engine and trans have
had no problems. Has been on 1400 mile
(round trip) 4 times. Perfect every
time. Side glass rattles were fixed by
replacing the hinge on the glass. Most
expensive repair was radiator fan. I
did learn that most dealer parts can
be bought cheaper from Nissan. The fan
I mentioned earlier-- Mercury $264
Getting ready to buy a newer van.
After looking at and driving a few,
(Chrysler, Chev, Olds, Toy, Hon) we
decided another Villager will give us
the best "bang for our buck"

I bought it based on it's good reviews
and can honestly say it was worth every
penny. I enjoyed it's usability
carrying my family, radio control
airplanes, or computers for my job. It
now has just over 120k mi and I hope to
help out a family in need. Repairs
were wear and tear for the most part,
except for a fuel pump (twice).
