2006 Nissan Quest 3.5 S Special Edition 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
This is my first minivan, as I too, was ambivalent about being a minivan mom, but I love it. It's roomy and sporty. I don't feel like I'm driving a big bulky van. I've taken several trips with it, and so far, no problems. I strongly suggest this van for those of you reluctant to finally admit you're a van person. It handles and corners like a sports car.
Freakin' love the automated liftgate. It's really convenient when you've got a million things in your hand, but still need to get in the trunk.
The interior upholstery and plastic can be difficult to clean. Duh, it's a minivan. Usually those have kids in it. And, kids are messy! I do wish the side windows opened. It can get a bit stagnant in the mid row seats without the air on.
