1998 Mercury Villager GS 3.0 gas from North America
A great van for its day
Ball joints, and tie rods 3x since new.
Currently have an occasional nasty engine misfire that we still cannot diagnose.
Leaking water in driver's foot well after heavy rain.
Door lock actuators.
Replaced gas filler neck and housing (rust).
It has been a very reliable work horse for our family.
It has been mostly city driven, which really hurts the gas mileage. But it still has the original exhaust.
We have oil sprayed the van almost every year since new, and it still has no rust (except for around the gas filler neck).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
