Nice but...
By Lin on


1996 Mercury Villager GS 3dr Minivan


Bought new...very dependable for many years but started breaking down constantly after 10 years and only 75K miles. Great for transporting small children and doing some light hauling. Middle and rear seats too heavy and hard to move. Window vent openers cheaply made and broke constantly even with little use. Engine OK but lacks punch, and transmission fine. Great visibility a plus. Rear A/C fan squeaked and emitted damp odor which dealer couldn't identify and fix.

Best Features

Removable seat comes in handy. Van is easy to see out of and low back end makes for easy loading.

Worst Features

Have had to duct tape passenger side windows as fasteners kept breaking. Needs sturdier attachment. I'm not sure how people got over 100K miles, mine is costing me a lot to keep fixing even with routine maintenance performed.
