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.
At 5'11", I always hit my head on the open trunklid. A few extra inches of vertical travel would be nice. Quality of cupholders, sunglass holder, etc. is not good. Interior fit/finish is below the quality of Sentras and Maximas I have owned.
With only 30,000 miles on it, I've had
too many problems. One day all the
electrical items went out. We couldn't
roll up the windows, move the seats or
do anything electrical. We could just
drive the car. Fron driver wheel
squeeks when we turn. On the positive
side, it's interior is the roomiest on
the market. We looked at the Honda
Odyssey, the Toyota Sienna and the
Mazda van(Can't remember the name) and
the Quest was much larger inside. I've
had no engine problems yet (knock on
wood) and the abundance of extra's is
nice. Overall it's a good product, I
just think we got a lemon as far as the
electrical is concerned.
abundance of cup holders, radio control
on steering wheel and in back, AC in
back, tv/vcr, one button personalized
seat setting memory
change funky looking bumper, make the
middle windows roll down for more
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.
The van needs tougher body panels, they dent too easy, tougher interior controls, and more compartments inside
