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.

  • 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.

No major troubles....but

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

We had no major troubles, but brakes did seem to wear out fast. Alignment in the rear tires, the shop said they were wasn't enough adjustment left and could only get them close. Backseat drink holders were ripped off from the seats several times by our kids(poor design), Nissan declined to cover while it was under warranty. After reading a lot of horror stories as I debated holding on to this vehicle, a slight flutter in the idle convinced me to trade it in. Up to that point, really tires and brakes, no major repairs at 74,000. Body was just starting to rust, I don't think I would buy another Nissan. Traded it for a Honda crv!




2007 quest quality

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

Worst vehicle I have ever owned. Auto door did not work. Dealer repaired. Fuse block blew I had to fix $400. Major issue was front suspension components. Just replaced control arms, ball joints etc. $1150 my expense. I have worked for Nissan suppliers before and thought the quality would be there. Wrong! I will never buy another Nissan. Service from dealers is poor and very expensive ! Presently there is a shimmy and can't get it out. Beverage holder next to second row seating poorly thought out. Easy for someone to drag their rear end across them and break them. Worst job of Japanese engineering ever. Made in Japan now instead of Mississippi. No more Nissan's for me.




The need for more room

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

I can't believe we just purchased a minivan. That was our thought over a year ago once we found out the twins were on their way. With a total of 3 kids, a large dog, and places to be we needed a larger vehicle. We looked at SUVs, crossovers, and we kept coming back to the minivan. For the cost and versatility, it won us over. The Nissan does everything well. Great power off the line, good gas mileage for hauling all of us avg about 20. On highway trips avg 25-26 mpg. The DVD screen is a hit with our 3 yr old and the wife and I love the rear power door. You get a lot for your money on the "S" version versus other makes and models. We picked up a used one for a great deal.

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

Very nice van. Was a little hesitant when I bought it because of the Honda and Toyota reliability reputation. Have driven a Toyota, Honda and Caravan since I bought my Quest and I DO NOT regret my decision one bit!!! Again...Very Nice Van!




Great car

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

I bought this car 1 1/2 yrs ago & have no problems with it at all. About the front seats, the upper lumbar is angled too far back so you never really can press your back against it. I love the interior, very spacious inside although the ext design makes it appear more sleek. I recently took it for a 1000K mile trip w/ 3 adults and 3 children. It was very easy ride, comfortable and felt safe. Lots of power and gas mileage was very good on hwy. It sure stinks in the city though (15/24).




Year and a half later

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

We traded in a European luxury sedan for the Quest, an appropriate car for a growing family. Both me and my wife drive the van and it takes time to get used to it but once you get over the gas pedal softness, it becomes comfortable. Has ample power and gets OK gas mileage. Some of the materials they used to make the car are cheap and breakable. The only problem so far is the tire pressure sensor. Knowing that there are problems with the sensor by reading similar reviews, it seems like Nissan should have a recall for it. It accommodates 7 comfortably. From the outside, it is better designed than that the other box vans that you see on the road. The kids love it because of the ample space.

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.

Introduction

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.

Safety

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.
