We looked at the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna
but picked the Nissan Quest because it seemed like
a better value overall. Car magazines rate it below
the former two vans but we actually LIKE the
interior and exteriror styling. The Honda's interior
seems like it was plucked from an Oldsmobile and
the Toyota's is a nice compromise. The engine has
a throaty exhaust growl and gets great highway
mileage while still having a ton of low end torque.
The second row fold down seats are also
a plus. We got alot more equipment for the money
with the Quest as well. Don't overlook this van
because of the reviews.
Tire pressure monitoring system. Fold down seats.
Great engine. Nice control layout. Lots of
compartments. Tons of safety features. Power
Roll down windows in the sliding doors like the
There're two things I'm against in a
vehicle: Front wheel drive and Minivan.
But yet we've had this Quest since
01/2004 and my wife loves it. She
likes it better than the Mercedes
ML430 we've had for the last three
years. Me, I have nothing against this
front-wheel drive minivan.
Roomy, Aggressive styling, Powerful
CD Changer would be a nice as a
standard equipment on S and SL models.
And don't forget sunroof as an option
for those too.
Very nice minivan. Drives with a
performance feel. Nimble steering,
good cornering. Good acceleration.
Sporty ride. Interior design is superb
in terms of comfort, legroom. Fold
down seats are great. Center column
with all controls took about two days
of getting used to but now its very
usable and I even prefer it.
Does not look like other minivans.
That's a plus!!!!!!
Center column and ease of access to
all buttons is a great feature. The
kids love the DVD player.
Side sliding doors sensitivity to
automatic backup can be better,
require less force.
Could use more sunglass space, like
Best automobile I have ever had. This
is my 2nd Quest minivan. When I went
to buy a new car I didn't even consider
anything but a Quest. It is quiet,
easy to handle, comfortable, lots of
space. Of course the gas mileage isn't
that great but after all it is a
minivan BUT I think the gas mileage is
better than most minivans on the market.
"trunk space", all the little pockets
and hiding places...I love that little
storage box on top of the driver's side
dash board...I also appreciate that
there are two back seat doors.
