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.

Lovely, but too small for

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

This vehicle is smooth to drive, has decent pickup speed, handles well, and has every bell and whistle you can imagine - the sunroof is a nice touch! But the interior is very small, with very little leg and head room. The cargo area is equally lacking - and for a family of five, it's a tight fit for a long drive. Overall, an excellent choice for a small family or adults who just want a few extra seats available - but not for larger families who do a lot of traveling.




Lots of good things

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

Considering the year of the vehicle, it has all the amenties I would wish for and the reliablity I would expect of a Nissan. Not bad looking for a minivan, the door handles are not the usual and still functional.




2001 quest gle

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

Fully loaded GLE with 3.3L V-6, leather and burlwood trim interior, plus 6-CD changer w/upgraded sound system, VCR (should a been DVD), power everything, with driver seat memory, and other stuff too numerous to mention. City mileage improved considerably from ~15 mpg to ~20 mpg after about a year. Electronic mileage fuel calculator is a joke, not even accurate. No major issues thus far -- knock on burlwood. Warranty will expire in a couple months and I have seen a few service advisories I would like to get checked, such as side-window latches that loosen, noises from rear suspension, seat belt recall. No issues regarding tire quality.
