I live in Missouri, and one year it snowed really bad. This van never got stuck in the snow. I only had to get the temperature fixed on it. The only thing that did it in was hitting a armadillo about the size of a cocker spaniel.
266,000 miles and still going. Not much done to it either (front axle twice and pass. seat belt - brakes, plugs, and oil). Admittedly, I don't take very good care of it, but it refuses to die. Still cruises at 75 mph with no problem. 13 years and in the garage just a few times - excellent value for the money.
The overdrive. Without that, I'd have a permanent spot in the slow lane. Plugs & oil filter easy to get to.
No problems in 140,000 miles except for
replacement of a water pump, and the
usual required maintenance. V-6 3.0L
engine has been smooth and doesn't burn
a drop of oil.Body is in great shape
through 10 salty road winters in
Smooth running engine and transmission.
Interior has held up well.
My '94 Quest is a workhorse. It has
162,000 miles on it, and I use it to
commute 25 miles each way to work as
well as for grocery shopping and just
about any light-hauling chore that
comes up. After 10 years, the body is
still in good shape, with no rust. I
had the customary problem with the
exhaust manifold bolts breaking. Tipped
off that Nissan might help me, I tried
to get them to pay for it. However, the
car already had 145K miles on it, and
they said they would give me money
toward a new Nissan instead. I Also,
the transmission malfunctioned
at 5OK miles, but it was covered by the
Mechanical reliability, secure road
handling, ability to get through snow.
Straight-forward interior design.
Fix the problem with the manifold
bolts, if that hasn't been done
already. Gas mileage (22 mpg) is ok,
but could be better.
I bought my 94 in 98.@61k,210k
