Brakes issues, poor interior quality
By MacG on
2004 Nissan Quest 3.5 S 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
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.
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.
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.
