2004 Nissan Quest Minivan 3.5 S 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

No complaints on trips. Gas mileage is great for it's size. The comfort and engine pick up is fabulous. The tire replacement is an issue because the tires are hard to find unless you get them from the dealer and they are expensive. The tire pressure gauge is on anytime there is a major change in temp and is a pain because the dealer has to reset it. The brakes wear out fairly quickly, we are on our second set, and we have also replaced the bearings. Driver arm rest, not in the right position, replaced. The van still looks good! Even though it is FWD,it slips in snow. Low to ground and can scrape. When packed to the gills, plus bikes, still gets good mileage.Has gotten stuck in gear some.


Best Features

Like the zip and comfort. Panal in middle. Very comfortable seats. Lots of space - you can haul 2 recliners and still have room! The gas mileage average and miles to empty indicator. Lots of extra storage cubbies. We typically use the van with all of the extra seats down.


Worst Features

The tire pressure gauge. More standard tires. Brakes need to be looked at. For us, spare tire is on bad place

2004 Nissan Quest Minivan 3.5 SL 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We bought the Quest believing that Nissan makes a good product. We were disappointed from the start. The gear lever came off, the seat adjustment came off several times, the door button fell inside the panel, the arm rests won't stay even, the sliding doors rattle and we were told nothing could be done. The exterior is cheap and gets dinged easily. The front nose cone is cheap plastic and breaks constantly requiring replacement of the entire cone. The tires are a rip off as you can only buy one type of tire at a high price. The car has been a complete disapointment.


Best Features

The only thing I like is the power lift gate before the button fell in and the back up warning alarm.


Worst Features

Quality.

2004 Nissan Quest Minivan 3.5 S 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We have owned our Quest for four years and it has not required a return trip to the dealer for anything other than a recall on an airbag. Drive 75 mph on long trips we average 25 mpg. The engine is fantastic and the thing is huge inside. If you need a larger vehicle that still gets decent mileage, this is one to consider.


Best Features

The base model has a lot of standard features for the money. Crash rating is the best. Big doors, lots of room and all the seats fold flat when you need to haul something large. Great in the snow with standard traction control and anti-lock brakes. Got me home in a blizzard after skiing.


Worst Features

We purchased the vehicle in it's first year, so I have read that there have been improvements to body structure since then. My only complaint is that it squeaks a little now in the body shell.

2004 Nissan Quest Minivan 3.5 SE 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Driving this van has been a pleasure and while its capacity is that of a soccer van, the image is simply not there. It drives smoothly, accelerates well, and handles corners. Nissan has handled the expected recalls of that of a new design quite well and our family is quite happy with it.


Best Features

Favorite features include the design (obviously), the large "trunk" area and plenty of ceiling room. Additionally, FOUR of the seats are that of the driver and are quite comfortable.


Worst Features

Assembly quality has been an issue with rubber trimming coming off, poorly glued side panels, opening side doors in extreme weather (over 100 degrees and below -20) despite recall "fixes". The body noise could be improved as well as the steering shaking (even when aligned).

Review

My Q needed a new fuel pump early in its life, which was covered under warranty. Also, front brakes were troublesome, a lot of vibration, several repairs, none covered by Nissan dealer despite known brake issues. No other problems with it mechanically. I loved the center gauges, a lot of people didn't, so that was changed in later models. Driver's seat back fabric wore out just after the warranty on it was up, ended up with two holes! The driver's seat back also seemed to get a bit wobbly, or loose. 3rd row seat was not easy to retrieve from stowed position. I think that many women would not have the strength for it - as a big guy I had to fight it.


Best Features

Great looking vehicle, got a lot of comments from people who loved the look of it. Surprising for a minivan. I thought the center console was cool.


Worst Features

Gas gauge needs to be more prominent, interior needs to be better made. Less cheap, ill-fitting, plastic would be nice. I can't imagine the interior on a 2004 lasting more than 100,000 miles. Mine was already looking really worn-out and old. Hopefully they addressed the front brakes in newer models.
