1994 Mercury Villager GS 3.0 V6 non interference from North America
Cheap used car, BUT poor engine performance in COLD WEATHER (below freezing)
EGR valve reporting trouble codes/causing CEL (EGR SOLENOID CODE).
Erratic idle, especially in colder weather. (IAC VALVE??)
Brakes very stiff in cold weather - must push hard to stop initially.
Bushings replaced - worn.
Sway bar replaced.
Rear brake cylinders/shoes - leaking brake fluid.
Front brake pads - stress fractures found in pads.
Brake lines leak - rusted underneath from climate.
Fuel injectors - erratic idle/poor mileage (15 mpg).
No rear defroster (doesn't work).
No warning chime if keys left in ignition or lights on.
No replacement for parking light halogens at local auto parts stores could be found.
Need special NISSAN CONSULT cable and software to check OBD codes without having to jumper pins under hood, which can be a pain.
Only shows rust on a few areas.
Comfortable driving position.
Nice for hauling heavy materials.
After removing the second row, the third row can slide all the way up or all the way back for easy storage.
Handles well in the snow/ice.
Transmission pan has a drain plug for "refreshing" oil.
Transmission seems strong on it when shifting.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
