This has been a very good van for our family for the past seven years. It has been very reliable and a pleasure to drive. The fuel injection system does require cleaning every 30K miles or the pedal will "stick". The interior features have much to be desired, the cupholders, TV/VCR,and seat handles, side vent window latches, are not of good quality. The display of the radio has faded out for a couple of years now, the radio still works however. We are beginning to experience some electrical problems with the power vent windows, turn signal, and window/door lock controls. Overall we have been very pleased with the van and with 84K miles some repairs are to be expected.

We purchased this van with 45k mi on it and have added another 60k w/o a major problem. I change the oil every 5k, and that's about it for service. Brake, shock, and tire wear have all been minimal. It starts and runs well in all weather, with one exception of a moderate lag at idle speed when the A/C compressor turns on. MPG is fair, usually 20-22. Seats are firm and comfortable. Driving position/feel is more carlike than other minivans. A little rust is beginning to show at the bottom of the sliding door panels, but the rest of the paint is good. One annoyance is that the latch on the passenger side sliding door window will not stay screwed in, but I would still buy this van again.

My Nissan Quest has great styling and good power. I have never been stranded. It is a good value. This is my second Quest, I had a 1997 model before. I traded it in for a 2001 Mazda MPV. I drove the MPV for two months then put it up for sale. I couldn't stand all the quirks and how small it was. I then went out and bought my 1999 Quest. I can't wait to to trade up to even newer Quest. It has awesome styling and is very reliable.

I like the Quest we've had a few minor
gliches when we first purchased it
used. The TV/VCR can be a bit
troublesome at times. The break pedal
sometimes sounds like you are stepping
on a mouse.(I've already had this
looked at and well the mouse came back
again) Overall though this has been a
good van for our family of five.

My experience was good. The van was
very comfortable and reliable. Also,
the 99 SE Quest was a first year model,
so it was fun being one of the first
out on the road. The problems I
experienced were not out of the norm
for a first year model and Nissan
dealers were very good about resolving
any issues I had. As a matter a fact, I
just turned in my 99 SE Quest lease
(Convenience & Leather package) for
another one. I'm now leasing a 2002 SE
Quest lease (Comfort/Convience, Auto
Diming mirror and Protection Package.
I'll be back to report on that one
