1999 Nissan Quest Minivan SE 4dr Minivan


Review

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.


Best Features

The performance on the highway, the ride of a car, and the TV/VCR is one of kids favorites! The little "extras" have made the driving experience of this van pleasureable.


Worst Features

Quality of interior needs to be upgraded. Concerned about possible electrical problems going forward.

1999 Nissan Quest Minivan SE 4dr Minivan


Review

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.


Best Features

Reliability; firm, comfortable seats; steering wheel-mounted audio controls; side-turning headlights.


Worst Features

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.

Review

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.


Worst Features

The van needs tougher body panels, they dent too easy, tougher interior controls, and more compartments inside

Review

Engine is real bad. It sounds like an overworked mule. Dealership service could never fix it. Jerky action when applying gas. Engine bogs down and is a gas hog.

Review

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.


Best Features

Sound System, TV/VCR, Rear AC, Storage all over the place.


Worst Features

Needs a DVD player instead, A little more foot room in the rear between the captains seats.
