amazing.The mpg is great.I cheated
there.I put Motor Kote in the engine

the fire wall instead of in hiding it

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
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!
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.
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

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

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.
I like the engine, the pep, the
reliability and the milage for this
heavy a car is good, about 20mpg.
Electrics. Easier way to get the back
row seats out of the way.
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.
Comfort. I could ride forever and not
get tired. Great handling.
Automatic vented windows in the back,
like the kind Chryslers have, would
have been a nice touch.
