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.

Reliable and cheap but has

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Villager

I've had the van for 3 years now. I bought it with 85K miles on it and have 140K now. I bought it because I got Nissan quality at Ford depreciation levels, so it was cheap. I like the Nissan engine and transmission. Only problems I've had were the usual Ford electrical gremlins. It is a gas hog. Seating system is poorly designed. Van is noisy going down highway (wind noise mostly.) I'm basically satisfied but can't figure out why this thing only gets 18-20 mpg when other bigger vans with bigger engines get 25 mpg. It's a good, cheap van, though.




Don't waste your money

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Villager

We were initially intrigued with the Villager because it is basically a cheaper version of the Nissan Quest, but it has been the worst investment of our lives. We have had nothing but repairs season after season, year after year. We thought we got if for a bargain, but the cost of the repairs makes this vehicle worthless. I hate this van and would not recommend it to anyone. It is noisy, has brake issues, ac issues and has slow acceleration. It eats gas as if it were an truck. Very very disappointing buy. I am looking for a replacement now. I would never recommend this van to anyone. It may be cheap in price only because it is cheap in quality.

My Villager has been extremely reliable and comfortable. I have had no problems with it. It's a fun van to drive and I wish they were still making them!

Excellent

The Mercury Villager is a fun mini van to drive and is worth the buy even if it is used. The interior is superior to other mini vans of its year.




Good vehicle

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Villager

We purchased this van since it was being discontinued, because it is very easy to get in and out of, unlike most vans. I am a short person, with a disability from polio and this van is perfect for me to enter and exit from. I wish they had continued to make this van as it is a very good vehicle.
