I bought this car with 156,000 miles on it and it needed a new fuel pump, a knock sensor and two tie rods. All went well with the exception that because of the age of the vehicle the computer would not reset the sensors without driving it for over 250 miles in order to have it pass inspection. Very happy with the overall performance...

Best Value for Any Vehicle I've owned

by from Washington on 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.

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).

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.
