Review of the 2007 Nissan Quest

  • More eye-catching and fun to drive than your typical kiddie hauler, the 2007 Nissan Quest has much to offer buyers seeking atypical family transportation.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Airy glass roof system, flat-folding rear seats, muscular V6, excellent crash test scores, roomy interior, sharp steering.

  • Cons

    Third-row seat isn't split, relative lack of cargo capacity behind the third row, stability control isn't available on all trim levels, can get uncomfortably expensive when options are added.

Nice at the begining, then

Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Quest 3.5 SL 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Nice vehicle when I bought it: Nice design, comfort, fun to drive, and thinking about the Japanese quality I was expecting a really nice quality vehicle. But one month after the purchase the battery died, was replaced under the warranty but still a hassle. Then at 15,000 miles the reas sonar alarm sound died and I have to replace the speaker by myself. otherwise you ended paying around $300 to the dealer. Then at 28,000 miles the rear door mechanism broke, a poor soldering nut to the frame of the door. Then at 30,787 miles (just few days ago) the speedometer is showing a higher speed, the gauge does not come back to zero, so you ended with 10 miles more your current speed, want more.

Not lol, but falling apart

This is the worse Nissan my dad ever had. We had an Altima S 2004 went in to 70k with out major problems. It was salvage so we went for Quest 2007 with only like 16K. Problems very loud rattling noise from bottle holders between driver and pass seat! Piece of exterior flew away while driving. Air conditioner not working. The part keeps burning very fast after we buy it! Now at almost 30K we want to just get rid of it! Brake pads need to be replaced at almost 30K!

Looks, power, space, reliable

I Must say after reading some of the comments, it appears some of these folks are not educated consumers and are unfairly rating the vehicle. What are they comparing to a sedan? No its a van. This is the 3rd Quest in my family. This model is by far the best. The styling is great, by far more attractive than its peers. Drive? Drives great with plenty of power.I agree the interior is not the finest. Its not the styling, its the plasticy finish. Resale isnt the best with Nissan but you'd pay more for an Odyssey or Toyota. If you paid 39k for the van, paid $350 per tire your [violative content deleted]. Shop around I paid no where near these prices. Very reliable car, hwy milage is good,great cargo space. Compare

Beware of nissan corp issued

Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Quest 3.5 SL 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I never thought I would be a minivan owner but I saw the style of the quest..I fell in love with it. I read reviews vs other minivans and all seemed great on the Quest. Shortly after my warranty expired I started to notice a whining noise coming from the engine. When I took it into the dealership they kept it over night,charged me $100 to diagnose it. I was floored to find out that the estimate to replace my timing chain both primary and secondary along with the guides was going to cost $3,000!! I took it to for another opinion and at that time I was informed that Nissan KNEW this was a problem for years and has a Technical Service Bulletin out. I had never even heard about a TSB!??

Pleased owner

We have enjoyed the nissans we owned. I believe the quality is great, some of the design issues are lacking from year to year, but that is same with all auto makers. Nissan needs to keep features included in cars or as an option. We have had no issues with the car and if we did, it was under warranty. Rear senors are standard with Nissan, look at competitors, high end only. Want to buy or lease new but $ is not in budget $500 plus is for a sports car not a van.

Buyer beware

Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Quest 3.5 SL 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

This van has been a sorry purchase from the start. 7 months after we got it, I called the nav number and they told me I needed to buy a new $280 disc as any addresses newer than 5 years in Houston could not be located, next the tires have gone bald after only 32K miles, Nissan canceled this feature and now we are to pay for all new tires and sensored rims as Michelin or Nissan will come thru. It is cheaply made and has all the packages on it, even tho we can't get some to work. Head rests are uncomfortable, also leg room on front passenger side. For the price it's an utter failure and can't believe Nissan won't stand by owners problems

What's New for 2007

The 2007 Nissan Quest gets a midcycle refresh. Exterior revisions are minimal, but the minivan's interior has been significantly revamped. The Quest's controversial pillar-style center stack has been retired, with its gauges and controls finding a somewhat more traditional home on the minivan's instrument panel. Nissan has also improved the center-stack design, expanded storage capability and added auto-folding headrests to the third-row seat. Finally, there are new options such as Bluetooth connectivity, an in-dash six-disc CD changer with MP3 playback and a backup camera.


Break free of the pack. Blaze your own trail. This is the call to arms that seemingly fuels the designers of the Nissan Quest minivan. When the current-generation vehicle was introduced a few years ago, it was nothing if not a standout, with singular sheet metal and a cabin that was more trendy bachelor pad than suburban kiddie hauler. Unfortunately, style trumped substance, at least when it came to the van's controversial interior. The chief bone of contention was the Quest's gargantuan center pillar, which housed switches and gauges typically located on the instrument panel. The pillar drew scores of detractors, who denounced it as inconvenient and unattractive.

For the 2007 Quest, Nissan has made a number of changes aimed at addressing these concerns. The minivan's unique exterior remains, but within the cabin the offending center pillar has been excised, with its gauges and controls relocated to a more traditional place ahead of the driver. Also new are revised climate controls, additional center-stack storage capability, a larger glovebox and a new design for the third-row seat that is easier to lower than before. The end result is a cabin that's thankfully far more user-friendly.

What hasn't changed is the Quest's impressive amount of passenger room; its wheelbase is 5 inches longer than that of the Toyota Sienna, for example. Driving dynamics are also unusually keen. With sharp steering and ample power courtesy of a refined 3.5-liter V6, this is one minivan that doesn't disappoint after you slide behind the wheel.

Overall, the changes to the 2007 Nissan Quest are welcome. The more conservative approach to interior design is for the better, as are the new features. This is a good minivan, especially for those consumers desiring something with distinctive styling and a big interior. But compared to other top minivans like the Honda Odyssey or Kia Sedona, the vehicle's lack of flexibility and potentially high MSRP can't be overlooked. We advise consumers to check out those vans before deciding on the Quest.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Nissan Quest minivan is available in four trims: 3.5 base, 3.5 S, 3.5 SL and 3.5 SE. The base model comes with dual sliding doors, cruise control, full power accessories, remote keyless entry, and an eight-speaker audio system with steering-wheel-mounted controls. The 3.5 S trim adds a backup sensor, a right-side power-sliding door, a power liftgate, power rear vent windows and an in-dash six-disc CD/MP3 player with an auxiliary jack.

Step up to the 3.5 SL and you also get heated mirrors, a power driver seat, power-adjustable foot pedals and rear audio controls. The top-of-the-line 3.5 SE trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights, power-sliding doors on both sides, a sunroof, heated leather seats, a power front-passenger seat, a backup camera, and an upgraded 265-watt, 10-speaker Bose audio system. Major options, depending on the trim level, include a Seat Package with a third-row flat-folding third-row bench seat and second-row captain's chairs; a fixed front-row center console; satellite radio; Bluetooth connectivity; a navigation system; and a rear DVD entertainment system.

Powertrains and Performance

Motivating the front-wheel-drive Quest is a 3.5-liter V6 good for 235 horsepower. A five-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard on all trims. EPA estimates are 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.


Standard on all Quest minivans are front-seat active head restraints, side curtain airbags for all three rows, traction control, a tire-pressure monitor and antilock brakes with brake assist. Stability control and front-seat side-impact airbags are standard on the SE and optional on the SL only. Michelin PAX run-flat tires are optional on the SL and SE, as well. In government crash testing, the 2007 Nissan Quest earned a perfect five stars across the board. The minivan (with the front side airbags) received a rating of "Good" (the highest) in both frontal offset and side-impact crash testing conducted by the IIHS.

Interior Design and Special Features

With optional seating for seven, the Quest offers an interior that most passengers will find pleasantly spacious. For 2007, the cabin's polarizing center pillar has been retired, with its gauges and switches finding a new home on the van's instrument panel. It's a welcome change, one that makes the Quest more user-friendly. The van offers flat-folding seats for both the second and third rows, a segment "must-have." However, the third row lacks the flexible, split-folding design available in competing vehicles. The van's utility takes another hit due to relatively limited cargo capacity behind the third row. The SE model comes with SkyView windows -- roof-mounted glass panels overlooking the second and third rows that lend an airy feel to vehicle's interior.

Driving Impressions

The 2007 Nissan Quest is an enthusiast-oriented option in the minivan category; the van is acquiescent around corners and offers sharp steering. The V6 is eager off the line, accelerating with gusto. Overall, the large Quest feels more agile than its heft suggests.
