Bought the van, used with 30,000 miles logged on it, put on an additional trouble free 100,000 miles on it. Had none of the problems mentioned by other reviewers, ( must have been lucky I guess ). Change the oil regularly, replaced the tires twice bought some studded snow tires for winter travel and in that configuration it handles like a regular 4 wheel drive vehicle .
Comfort and space ( use it to haul trash or people + luggage ). Air conditioning with individual controllable ducts all over the place. Sound system with remote control in the rear seat. Lots of spaces to hide things .
This is a very reliabe and practical minivan. Very comfortable seats, and comfortable to drive. Take care of it and it will take care of you.
Comfortable Seats with good arm rests Reliable Simple Design sliding doors on both sides
Cup holders not ideally located No place to put cell phone and little things like that oxygen sensor has needed replacing a few times windsheild washer balloon broke inside the fluid holder triggered light indicator even though fluid was full
My original Quest was a 98 whose only defect was the heater going in 2 yrs. My 2000 gave me major problems and is about to die. I don't understand. I know people with 98s and 96s who haven't had anywhere near the problems I've had. Even with mechanical breakdown I feel I traded in a great minivan for a knock-off of the original. The front end makes noise always like its falling apart and now it is stalling like a 90 year old at the olympics. My friend has a 98 with 30k more miles on it than mine (147k) and he has no major trouble and puts a lot of miles everyday on it. Can't wait to say goodbye to it.
Interior lights, original radio allowed adults in the front to hear one station while teens listened to another in the back.
Nissan charges major money and did not fix my vehicle to my satisfaction (not even close). Follow the same engine specs on the original Quest and use more Japanese parts than Ford parts (engine is all Ford)
The front end always sounds like it's falling apart. Constant noise and replacement of tires and brakes (almost annually), CV Joints, Struts, etc.. Several thousand dollars in front end work at dealership only to always have the same problems. The noise is a horrible creak that sounds like the front end is falling off. People stare at us if we pull up in a drive thru! TV/VCR broke first year and dealer refused to replace/fix it even though it's a factory TV/VCR. If you buy one of these you better have alot of money for tires and brakes. After researching, found out that's due to the thing being built on a car chassis instead of a truck chassis. Can't wait to get rid of it.
Interior and all the perks such as captain's chairs, all reclining seats, roomy interior. Nice for kids and travel.
Need major improvements in front end. Will not buy another Nissan due to this.
I have loved this minivan for the past six years and will miss it (my husband is making me sell it to make room for other vehicles). I never wanted a minivan to begin with, but never felt I was driving one with this Quest. It is so luxurious and comfortable inside and looks great on the outside. I have always gotten compliments on it. Has been a very reliable vehicle -- no major problems.
Easy to drive; comfortable seats; great sound system for a minivan!
