2005 Nissan Quest 3.5 S 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
We bought the van in March and currently have 7500 miles on it. My wife traded it for a 2001 Chrysler Town/Country. The power and ride are very good - almost sporty - and it is comfortable, but the reliability is questionable and build quality needs improvement. We just got it back from the shop for a bad transmission control module, which was replaced under warranty; service was very good. However, the driver's storage hinge is broken, the a/c vents have fallen from the ceiling, silver finish on the steering wheel and shifter show wear - as does the material on center stack. It also looks like it will be hard to clean. However, it was significantly much cheaper than the Sierra/Odyssey.
Power (speeding tickets), smooth and precise steering/transmission, standard DVD player, power passenger door/tailgate. Large windows. Handling and performance tires. Rear seat comfort (elevated in rear) and wide aisle.
Increase interior/mechanical build quality. Improve front leg space. Seats a little too flat, maybe add more side bolster.
