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.

Villager by choice

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

My second Villager. Editors think this is a junker, I like it better than the Sienna and Odyssey plus a lot cheaper. Seating configuration works for me..I'm a musician. Power and gas mileage are more than adequate. What about the falling rear window wiper blade? Mine's the fourth one I've seen. Shouldn't this be a safety recall Issue? No serious problems.




Great van with few problems

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

This van is great. This is my 7th year of owning it and had a previous 1995 model Villager. I love the performance and semi sporty handling, better than the other minivans I test drove. The interior is well designed, except that it has so much plastic used. The dashboard rattles when it idles, so I took it too the dealership, but of coarse they said they couldn't hear it. Had an exhaust leak at about 90k, the mechanic couldn't order the right part because they quit making it, so he had to weld the old one. It still whines a little when you accelerate, nothing big, though. Also, I can feel engine vibrations through the steering wheel. But, other than that, it's a great mini-van.




Excellent value

We purchased our 2002 Villager Sport ussed with 11,000 miles on it for about half the sticker price. Like buying a new car for half price. We had a 98 Windstar but wanted a smaller van. The Villager is perfect. Large enough to be comfortable, small enough to be easy to manouver. It is a shame they discontinued it. The Villager filled a niche that is fast disappearing as most minivans keep gaining weight and size. Sometimes "bigger is not better" for everyone.

This 2002 Sport is my second Villager. I just picked it up yesterday. My '94 Villager LS had 123,000 miles on it at trade in and was a wonderfully reliable and comfortable vehicle.So far I am very pleased with the looks, design and comfort of my new Villager.

The Villager is an easy mini-van to drive. Plenty of room for kids and gear. Lots of options for the money. Needs the heat for the rear to be couple in eith the a/c controls. Vehicle is well laid out, all controls are easy to reach. Plenty of leg room. Good looking vehicle.

Still the best

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

We've had four Villagers since '95, and the 2002 is as wonderful as its forerunners. It's sad to know that the Villager becomes a victim of "progress" after this model year. Ford's inferior Windstar or variations thereof are altogether unsatisfactory alternatives as far as we're concerned.
