We just picked up our loaded 2004 Quest
SE this weekend. So far no problems at
all. My wife will need to get used to
the center instruments, but it's not
that big of a deal once you drive it
for a day or so.
We traded in a Suburban for this van -
we have 5 kids so we need lots of room!
I love the folding seats - for us it
was either this van or the Chrysler
T&C. The Quest's center shoulder belt
in the 3rd row and it's huge cool
factor closed the deal!
Love the styling and number of features
for the money. Plenty of safety items
as well as conveniences - the fold down
seats are a must!
Have the center guages angled a little
more towards the driver. They're easy
to see now, but a little more angle
Speed up the power doors on the sides -
Ive owned this 2004 Quest for several
months now and have nothing but praise
for this vehicle. The center console
takes a few days to get used to but
actually feels like it belongs centrally
After reading several website reviews on
this vehicle, I think some members
testdriving these cehicles need to own
the van before speaking.
This is SERIOUS departure from the norm
in design, but it all works well in the
end. Some reviewers seem to have a
problem with the new design of this van.
I am not one of these people.
Ponies under the engine, Smothness of

The big mouths that Sienna and Odyssey
owners have when calling this AWESOME
vehicle #3 of the Japanese group. By
the way, this vehicle supports many US
workers at the new factory in Mississippi.
Ive really enjoy driving a mini van
thats designed very much like a car,i
have the fully loaded model that came
with the sun roof and the sky
views.This particular one also came
standard with a 6 disc cd changer and
DVD for the children to be able to
enjoy long rides.Finally Nissan is in
Sun Roof,Sky Views,Heated seats &
mirrors,auto foot pedels,rear
sensors,power seats that remember how
close you prefer to sit to the
wheel.GPS Navigation system
The dash contains a few too many
indicator lights to tell you when
something needs attention and i found
that very confusing at first especially
when things light up or begin to ding.
We've been to the dealer three times,
and will be back again:
1)Leaky skyroof. Took two weeks to
receive and two days to fix. 2) Skyview
shade not "on track", causing edges
tear. Dealer replaced it. 3)
Annoyingly low arm rests, and no way to
adjust! My '95 Montero adjusts to
multiple levels; this should be
standard in a $33,000 car. Dealer
says "sorry". 4) Plastic back of
passenger seat broken at the factory.
Dealer replaced it. 5) Temp control
knob sticks causing temp to ramp up to
90F. 6) Sunroof won't always close -
it'll close then come back to half open
and stop! This will be looked at this
week. 7) Starting to get a "catalytic
Exterior styling. Drove it to Colorado
and got 24mpg. Smooth ride. Lots of
Work the bugs out before you introduce
a new model.
