hauler of four and a dog by Mom's van, Ohio on 04/16/2004. Trim: 1998 Mercury Villager LS, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Good accelleration, stable handling and braking. leather seats comfortable, bucket seats second row to separate the kids. Solid vehicle, no rattles or squeaks heard. Minimal road noise heard. Comfortable ride on long trip (in front seats, might not be so comfortable for an adult in 2nd row or 3rd row, slightly tight on legroom).
Cons: switches such as windshield washer not always responding (same problem with husband's Nissan), button on steering wheel for radio control sometimes works. Broken lock on back door (which unfortunately controls wiper for back window too.). So so gas mileage.
Overall review: We have had this vehicle just short of two years and are generally happy with it. So far (knock on wood) no major repairs. Too bad it was discontinued and replaced with a totally Ford product.

It's a keeper by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/23/2003. Trim: 1998 Mercury Villager GS, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Very dependable and well put together. Great ABS brakes. When I moved everything fit in it, with the door closed, except my couch.
Cons: Could have a little padding in the seats, however it is very comfortable.
Overall review: As a former Oldsmobile owner(owned several) I can say the quality is great. My last Olds had breaks that needed replacement at 18,000 miles, defrosters that weren't any good, power windows that didn't work in rain, door locks that were tempramental, etc. the only thing that was good about it was the engine. My Villager has been trouble free.

Great Minivan by A CarPoint Consumer on 04/05/2001. Trim: 1998 Mercury Villager GS, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I have 98 Villager and 55k miles on it and it has been a workhorse. I am the kind of driver that likes to speed up fast and this car can do it. I believe it has Nissan's Maxima motor in it and transmission. Very reliable and nice car.
Cons: Driver cupholders are not really good. Mine broke in about a year but I 've replaced them with the center console which works even better.
Overall review: Great economy minivan. Great performace. Smooth shifting. Go for it.

The Ultimate Work Horse Minivan by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/08/2013. Trim: 1998 Mercury Villager GS.
Pros: I Have owned my 98 Villager since 1998. It has gone 392 879 kilometres with no major flaws. I use this van every day to commute 1 &1/2 hours everyday to work, and she runs like a charm. I've driven to Pennsylvania three times, New York over ten times and I've driven to Montreal 5 times (I Live In Toronto,Ontario) I've carried upwards of 1000 Lbs of wood all at once while building my shed. she will never die and the 19 000 that I had invested in her was the best investment I have ever made
Cons: Needs a tad more leg room but i still love her
Overall review: Great minivan
