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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
