1997 Nissan Quest GXE 3dr Minivan
This has been an excellent ride. I dislike the thought of giving it up - I may just wait until it is a decade old! Car has been extremely reliable. Small amount of regular maintenance has kept it very road worth. Recent strut replacement gives it back original smooth ride. Had trouble early on with door locks that seemed to have a mind of their own. Also, seat belts quit retracting early in the relationship. "Sarah" has been through much and still retains most of that "grilish" look. Happy the new model has second door. With kids getting older probably won't go for another van but definitely Nissan is a qulity producer of cars.
Styling and ride very smooth and enjoyable. Has retained value despite high mielage. Leather, CD player have made ride comfortable. Removal of back seats has made it great for cargo and campouts. Sleeps three easily.
Offer in a hybrid, seatbelts need attention along with locking system.
