Im definitely glad I found this vehicle while shopping for used vans on craigslist last year. I bought it a year ago with 114,000 miles and have been driving it hard, putting 22,000 miles on it. I use every day as a service vehicle.
It has been reliable over all but it has had several wear & tear issues such as new brakes, bad distibutor & new tires. Theres also a knocking or crunching noise coming from the driver side wheel over bumps. It think it may be cv joint or something.
So its not invinsible but its definitley reliable & a phenomenal value. I just hope mine hold up to 200-250k miles like many others have.

This is the best vehicle I've ever had! It has nearly 150k mi, I got it with 39k mi. It handles well. No major problems, have only had to do regular maintenance until just recent. Now it's starting to run rough, like it's going to stall out. Shimmy in the steering when I go over 70 mph. Replaced timing belt at 100k. repaired ac switch (front & back) around 120k. No probs with windows, radio, doors. Oxidation and paint peeling but it's 11 yrs old & we live in FL! Otherwise it's beautiful! We are gonna try to get it repaired bc I love this van!

We drove one starting in 2007 with 90,000 and would have gone far past our 120,000 this year if not for an awful crash that totalled our car. We were cut off by a clueless, self-involved Kia Soul driver who didn't even stop after our accident. My wife swerved to avoid them, the back wheels kicked out and we spun backwards across four lanes. Thankfully, after two hard bumps against the guardrail, we were blessed with no major injuries (my wife, my 3 year old and me) but a totalled minivan. It ended four years of dependable driving in all seasons. Gas mileage was OK, comfort was great, AC/Heat superb. Breaks locked up in our accident, and we weren't speeding...but overall, a great car.
The convenience, comfort and luxury option packages have been simplified. All 2000 Villagers meet federal low emission vehicle status and come standard with a child seat-anchor system. A new rear-seat video entertainment system is now optional.
