Best Value for Any Vehicle I've owned

by Owner from Washington | October 22, 2009

My Villager (which is really a Nissan Quest is you do your research) has almost 200K on it and runs like a top. Terrific value.

Great Van

by Mike from Petersburg, VA | March 24, 2009

Bought this used just over a year ago with 146,000 mi. it now has 192,000 mi.(yes I drive alot). The first problem that was obvious when I bought it was the thermostat was bad. Was a bit of a challenge to replace but do-able. I also drove from Virginia to North Dakota with no problems but with an already worn tire(rides great on spare). I did replace the A/C compressor due to the seal blowing out. A/C is very cold and the rear works great as well. Power door locks don't always work right(seen on other Fords from the '90's as well just flip the switch a few times to get all the doors to lock or unlock). A common problem I found is with the factory fuel pump( I researched), it loses pressure when engine is off. When you turn the key to run you here the pump at a higher pitch than normal until pressure is established, then you can start(only about a two second wait) otherwise at highway speeds on a hot day the engine will just stall(requiring a 15-25 min. wait to restart). It still runs as strong as it did when I bought it(strong).

reliable except for ac

by family guy from Plymouth, MI | March 20, 2009

My family has owned our 98 Villager since buying it brand new. It has never been towed a single time. The only reliability problem has been several expensive ac problems which occurs every 4 years or so. Rides very smoothly.
