Review of the 2001 Nissan Quest

  • A minivan on critical life support. Buyers should look elsewhere.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Tidy exterior size, lots of bang for the buck, interior flexibility.

  • Cons

    Insufficient passing power, ungenerous interior space.

  • What's New for 2001

    Despite the company's decision to kill the Quest after a short 2002 model run, Nissan imbues the 2001 Quest minivan with a raft of minor improvements. Styling front and rear is freshened, and redesigned alloy wheels debut on all models. Entry-level GXE gains a rear stabilizer bar, while sporty SE receives acceleration-sensitive strut valving and a strut tower brace. New interior gauges and fabrics spice things up, and a 130-watt Super Sound system is standard on SE and GLE. Luxury GLE models also get an in-dash six-CD changer and a wood-n'-leather steering wheel. An optional overhead family entertainment system replaces the former floor-mounted model, though that rather archaic unit can still be specified for SE and GLE Quests equipped with a sunroof. Front seatbelts now have pre-tensioners for improved occupant protection, and crash test scores are up this year, as well.

Dependable and easy to drive

Vehicle: 2001 Nissan Quest GXE 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

We bought this mini-van brand new. Normal maintenance is all we really performed on this vehicle. The rear cooling feature is a must as it cools the people in the back seat quickly. I am very happy with this purchase. The engine runs smoothly and quietly even though it has over 100k miles.




Very dependable and safe car

Vehicle: 2001 Nissan Quest GXE 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

Bought the 2001 Qwest brand new on 1/1/2002. We have owned it for 7 1/2 years and it has been very dependable. All we ever had to do is the routine maintenance and oil changes. In all that time we just had one window latch break on the van. It has been through a stress test of three children.




Excellent car

Great reliable car

Vehicle: 2001 Nissan Quest GXE 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

Have not had any mechanical problems with this car. It runs quiet and the paint job is very good no rust. The kids love the Audio center. I am buying a new Nissan Van.




Not bad

nice car a bit pricey




Better the second time around

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Nissan Quest GXE 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is our second Quest, the first being a 1997. It responds and handles well on turns with decent power for a mini van. We love the versality. Everything fits from luggage to a full- size recliner. Our grandkids love the video system. Only complaint is one of the side door windows occasionally becomes unlocked. Very reliable. Highly recommended over the Toyoya or Honda mini's.
