Review

Issues: We have had the usual things
like timing belts and fan belts,
brakes, water pumps replaced. We have
also had to replace the front axel
twice(cv joint issue) and the struts.
The rear a/c has gone out twice. The
rear wiper is demon possessed and
works on its on -from time to time
(removing the fuse is the only way to
cut it off at times.) The drawer
under the front passenger seat came
off the track and became wedged. Raw
gasoline smell in cabin of van.

For the most part this vehicle has
served us well and have contemplated a
new Quest.


Best Features

Ability to configure seating was my favorite item. It is always easy to think back on what is wrong with something or what went wrong. The best compliment I can give is that this vehicle in nine years put us on the side of the road one time. Realiable comfort for the family!


Worst Features

The automatic shoulder strap guide has removed hair from my head at least fifteen times-very painful. Better cup holders, a handle above the door on the interior side of each seat, multiple power plugs for cell phones/cig. lighter/video equipment.

Review

From '97-'99 I commuted 500 mi. weekly
in peak commuter traffic on L.I.
Expressway. This car performed well in
all kinds of weather and held the road
when other cars were spinning out.
It's quick response and easy handling
has avoided close calls with a bale of
hay that fell off a flatbed and other
mishaps that are a part of a daily
commute. We took this car to MA. and ME
four adults, 2 kids in car seats and
all the accompanying luggage,etc, in
comfort.


Best Features

Rear side windows open out rather than down, rear fold down seats, removeable center seat that allows rear seats to slide forward, child lock on pull-back door and best of all power driver's seat. Roomy interior.


Worst Features

D/S and Pass.as well as rear windows are auto, the middle side should also be auto.

Review

I bought this car new for my family and
it certainly has served us well. Has
pep, runs smoothly and quietly for many
years now. Only problems seem to be
electric. Our fan went out on the
heater/air cond and no one seems to be
able to fix it without getting into an
unlimited search by the mechanic,
while you are paying 90 dollars an
hour. I stopped after 3 hours and now
we live with it the way it is. I intend
to try for 200 thou on this car...that
is my quest for this Quest. It ain't
exactly the grooviest car ever, but it
has given my more miles than any other
car I've driven in the past 50 years so
that is something I am grateful for.


Best Features

I like the engine, the pep, the reliability and the milage for this heavy a car is good, about 20mpg.


Worst Features

Electrics. Easier way to get the back row seats out of the way.

Review

Think of the Quest as the reliable old
horse of the fabled Western hero.
That's the kind of dependable,
trustworthy service I have enjoyed with
the Quest. Though it's time for a new
car, by choice, not necessity, I will
be turning over the reins to my kids,
who, with their own attention to caring
for this minivan, should be able to
take it to 200,000. I love the ride,
better than many sedans, and the Maxima
engine has plenty of get up and go. I
drove a more current one and they've
clearly de-tuned the new ones.


Best Features

Comfort. I could ride forever and not get tired. Great handling.


Worst Features

Automatic vented windows in the back, like the kind Chryslers have, would have been a nice touch.
