Review of the 2002 Mercury Villager

  • Dead after this model year, Villager meets the executioner because it is small, unrefined and lacking in ultimate Swiss Army knife minivan utility.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Plenty of features and gadgets, low actual transaction prices, optional Autovision entertainment system.

  • Cons

    Too small for some uses, fussy seating system, very little cargo space inside with a full load of passengers.

  • What's New for 2002

    After 2002, it's outta here. As such, it comes as no surprise that there are virtually no significant changes to the Villager this year.

Vehicle: 2002 Mercury Villager Estate 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is our third Estate. The first one went 260K before we traded for a '98. That went 190K before I demolished it. Car was toast but wife and I walked away. Interesting note. Injuries in accidents are roughly half of those in other vehicles.Just bought '02. Expect the same great reliability. Only problem was Ford CD changer which went south at 140K on both previous cars Newer one has simple player. I guess we'll have to hang on to this one.

Most comfortable and efficient van

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mercury Villager Estate 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is the first minivan I have owned and am very pleased with the comfort and the fuel economy. I have gotten 23- 25 mpg highway miles. Also, the leather seats are very comfortable with a lumbar support for the driver. I have to travel long distances to work and the comfort is great since I have a bad back. The sound quality is great especially with the video system. The only compliant are the tires; Michelin Symmerty tires are already worn badly at 60,000 miles and are very rough. Overall this is the best car I have ever owned. Unfortunately they (Nissan) don't make this van anymore. It is basically a Nissan Quest.

A van for comfort

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mercury Villager Estate 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

This minivan is really comfortable for a bad back. It doesn't drive like a truck, which is one thing I don't like about vans. It does really well on curves. The mileage is great for on freeway driving. I drove approximately 240 miles on the freeway and I was very pleased with the use of fuel. Less than a half a tank of gas.

2002 villager estate

Vehicle: 2002 Mercury Villager Estate 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

I have now had my 2002 Villager Estate for about a year and put about 7000 miles on it. Gearshift indicator broke, but easily fixed. The gas mileage could be better. Other than that I like the van pretty well, needs to come with stiffer tires than the Goodyear tires that came on it. They should have redesigned it and cut off some of the weight rather than stop making it. Now when you get a Merc van, you are getting a Ford Winstar with Merc nameplate. I would recommend a used one of these vans.

Second one owned

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mercury Villager Estate 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is my second one; I've had good luck with both. The gas mileage is good for a minivan. I don't have a problem with the cargo space. My '97 had some electrical problems. The middle seats are heavy to remove.

Awesome van

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mercury Villager Estate 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

This vehicle is very comfortable. The options are few but great. We did not add-on anything, as it is fine the way it is. It is very fun to drive. It is such a smooth ride and the seats are very comfortable. It is very easy for my 85 year old crippled grandmother to get in and out (verus a car, which is nearly impossible).
