Bought the Villager new in 2000 as a leftover 1999 for a good price.
You can put 7 people in the van, or their luggage, but not both at the same time.
Its a little small.
Its short on power too, but thats about all the negatives there are.
The ride and comfort are great.
Its been very reliable.
I replaced the cvu joints at 80,000.
The radio lights are intermitting.
The throttle sticking is a very common problem.
The solution is not that bad.
Get a can of throttle body cleaner and spray around the edges of the flapper in the throttle body. Overall I'm well pleased.
Dash has a good layout.
Paint has held up well. Visability is good for a van. Gas millege is good. No gas strutts to replace on hood-good old fashioned metal pole. Quiet other than engine noise under acceleration.
AC never serviced yet.
