2004 Nissan Quest 3.5 SE 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
The maintenance costs of a Quest are unbelievably high. It is the first car I've owned which needs a brake pad & rotor replacement every year, and new tires every year and a half. (None of previous vehicles have chewed through these like the Quest!) The car rattles, and we had to take our to the dealership for engine noise multiple times before they *finally) believed us based on a new service bulletin that went out. Too bad - it's a stylish minivan, and we had high hopes for it. It's functional for our family, but we just wish it was lower-maintenance.
SkyView windows. DVD system. Power sliding doors. Stylish design, esp. compared to other minivans.
Shaky steering wheel. Chews through brakes and tires. Faulty tire pressure gauge. Non-functioning rear-assist detector.
