2005 Nissan Quest Minivan 3.5 S 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

2005 Nissan Quest - Quality issues We purchased the car with 16k mi in 2008. Car now has 55k mi. We have replaced the struts in the tailgate door $700, motor in tailgate door $650, 4 sets of brake pads (front & rear), 3 sets of tires. Gas gauge does not work properly, sliding side door will sometimes decide not to close so you have to turn it on manual to shut, other side door freezes shut in winter time, rear windshield wiper has not worked since buying, a/c is intermittent, skirts that are supposed to hide under captains chairs will not stay attached and cause tripping hazards. Van avgs 16mpg overall, but a measly 13mpg city driving.


Favorite Features

Plenty of space inside.


Suggested Improvements

Do not place radio antenna in rear seat window well within reach of children. Gas gauge clearly issue with all Nissan cars and recall should be extended to include all Nissans. Vans should be designed with more durable tires and brakes. Nissan has become the new Ford. Quality, quality, quality.

Review

First of all, i hate this van so much. i have had terrible experiences with it. I have way to many to tell you. First off, the van is WAY to low and this causes my catalytic converter to break and change. The transmission is now seeming to have trouble and that's what many people say. IT only has 93k on it and many problems i have with it. the doors do not open at all and you have to tug really hard and the automatic trunk will not budge open without pulling on it and breaking off the latch that covers it! Too many noises such as creaking noises, outside noises, and many more. Blower motor goes out, and brakes will not last for more than 6 months!! I REGRET BUYING IT AND IM WARNING YOU NOT T

Review

We purchased it brand new in '05. We had few complaints for 5 years. In January 2011 it started blowing smoke from the exhaust. The van had 30k miles on it and there were no "warning" lights coming on. Despite proper maintenance, the oil was low and sludgy. To condense a very long and frustrating story; we took it to the dealer multiple times trying to find the problem. $400 later we were told the engine was basically fried and they couldn't explain it. We tried to get assistance from Nissan as the van had low mileage. Our mechanic told Nissan it was not a maintenance issue, they refused to assist because I was missing a couple receipts to prove it was properly maintained.

Review

This van is huge. It has a lot amount of space for all seven people. then there's the problems. Fist two days after buying the van the service light went on. We take it to the dealership and the catalytic converter is bad. We leave for a ten hour trip the next day. They gave us a rental for a month! Then just couldn't fix the van. When we got it back it was making some weird noise. Take it to the shop, They can't here it. That's only the start. This vans been in the shop over 13 times, in 9 months. The next problem is the cheap booty materials. The worst part is how low it is. We live in the boondocks and we always bottom out. Although it has a smooth ride when its not broke.


Favorite Features

Power sliding doors, fold flat seats, power lift gate, parking sensors(believe me) and cup-holders.


Suggested Improvements

I think you already know.

Review

Our old Suburban's engine blew on the way to St Louis so we unloaded it and searched for a replacement. Not having a lot of time for research and negotiation, we ended up with a 2005 Nissan Quest with 74000 miles. We really liked the features as well as the unique appearance both inside and out. It runs great, has excellent acceleration, and is very reliable. You can lay flat all the seats and load it to the hilt, and it still goes like it's empty. The seats aren't quite as comfortable as I'd like, nor is the mileage as consistently high as I had hoped. And I'll never buy from that dealership again as they severely took advantage of our situation. Otherwise, we love it!


Favorite Features

Unique styling, great acceleration, good ride and handling, cornering lights.


Suggested Improvements

Better seats with improved lumbar support; easier to lower rear seat.
