1997 Nissan Quest Minivan GXE 3dr Minivan


Review

I actually purchased this van d/t all of the positive reviews here on Edmunds. I purchased my van at 192,000 miles from a couple who had pristine records on the van and claimed 'no problems' other than maintenance. This van has left me stranded twice now, including once while away in another state where I knew no one and was using the van to do a craft show. It seems to have a lot of issues with the fusing/ electrical system and I have had to had the fuel pump replaced. Yes, I understand it is an older van and repairs will be necessary, but I have sunk over $3000 in repairs in just the past 9 months I've had it. Wish I would have done more research.


Best Features

I do like the 6-disc magazine CD player-- that's probably my favorite part of the van. It has power windows, seats, etc. that work ok.


Worst Features

Could be much more reliable as far as the fuel pump, electrical system, fusing, etc.

Review

After 6 years, we just sold our GXE. It was a fantastic van. The two tone color was beautiful, loved the style and was extremely reliable. Van was loaded: auto lights, premium stereo, auto sunroof, AC, cruise con, alloys etc. East to drive and comfortable. Best family vehicle we've had. Easy to drive. Not a bulky feeling van.

Review

Great minivan. Only a few annoying things: all buttons and switches were sticking. Rear wiper and side windows were electrically intermittent. Very reliable. 3.0 6-cyl is strong enough with decent gas mileage. Transmission was strong and could easily handle mountains. Never had a major issue with this van.


Best Features

Visibility, power and overall comfort. Loved the ability to remove captains chairs and slide rear seat wherever I needed it. This van can carry a lot of stuff.


Worst Features

None since the new ones are completely redesigned and don't even resemble this model.
