by Bill on Aug 7, 2007 Vehicle: 1999 Nissan Quest GLE 4dr Minivan
The best, most reliable vehicle I've ever owned, and that's saying something. Bought it brand new in '99 and I've never had a single problem with it, even with the miles at over 170,000. Even though my kids are driving themselves now I still get plenty of use out of the van and it's one of the most comfortable cars I've ever driven. Based on this I'd buy another Nissan in a heartbeat.

I bought my 99 Quest GLE used in 2002. It was significantly cheaper than comparable used Hondas, Toyotas & Dodges. On the other hand, it had more luxury features. More to the point, it fits in MY Garage. It's about 6 inches shorter than current Odysseys & Siennas & Grand Caravans. That means I can squeeze it in the garage behind the lawnmower and bicycles. It still has three usable rows of seats. Great on vacations. The 1999 model had a TV/VCR standard - the kids love it. Surprisingly, the TV reception isn't bad. I had a 1998 Mercury Villager. The 1999 model is much better with side doors on both sides,6 extra inches of room, and the 15 horsepower boost makes performance just fine.

My van is the GLE...all the bells and whistles, plus the sunroof. I love that this van drives like a car. We drove some other vans and all drove like trucks. Handling is great. We do reg. maintenance and have had very few problems. Now at 120k mi. We just had a new radiator put in; must also replace cv boots soon and the struts. This is normal at this mileage. Wonderful car with family. Kids love the t.v. I can leave back seat pushed up against middle row most of the time and then push it right back when I have extra passengers. Car has lots of vroom vroom.

My 1999 Nissan Quest has good power, decent fuel economy, great interior and comfort (with a great leather quality), and lots of neat features. My kids love the video system. I have not experienced any major problems. I just hit 40,000 miles and my Questr still rides like a sedan. I also own a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder and provides the same performance and quality. I plan on purchasing a Nissan as my next vehicle as well.

I balked at the idea of becoming
a "minivan mom", but I love my van! The
kids can watch a movie during long
trips, and there's plenty of space to
keep them out of arm's reach of one
another. I bought it used at a very
good price, which made me wonder what
was wrong with it, but over a year
later and all I've had to do is fill it
with gas and change the oil. Very
solidly built, dependable, and
comfortable, even for a family of six!

Great van, GLE package a must, The only
thing I would like, is more HP , I
found that with the 5 of us it took
some time getting up to a good speed
when getting on the Interstate. If they
could produce a 200+ HP van , I would
be a Quest customer for life.
Third generation Quests, which is probably what you are looking at, have a terrible reputation - who knows, you may get lucky, but I would not take any chances. I have a second generation Quest (1999)...
