i have a 2007 Nissan Quest with 135K miles. Prior to hitting 100K the car engine wise was Ok, but i constantly needed brakes, and every single component of the interior was broken, the ridiculous placement of the cupholders on the rear seats, came off everytime someone got out of the car, every knob had fallen off, the windshield wipers were terrible, it was a mess, but since the engine was good, i carried on. When the car hit 100K all that changed, i needed motor mounts, timing chain is now deteriorating (thats what the dealer said) i can no longer open the windows and when i went to dealer to see about fixing that, he said the part( a new switch) was $600!!!!! i kept hearing a knocking sound when i switched gears, and was told it was the need for motor mounts which couldve also been causing the poor acceleration and revving of the RPM's while car went no where, so 1000$ later motor mounts were fixed, and car still makes knocking sound and still has acceleration problems, i had the transmission tested and and apparently thats shot now too, DEALER actually said its not worth fixing due to the timing chain issue??? its only 2007 and i was hoping to get to 200K and kept up on all the maintenance for that reason??????? I wil never buy a NISSAN again , and will tell everyone i know about the poor quality .
Bought it new in 2006. We realy liked the style and we trusted Nissan's reliability because we drove a 94 Altima all the way up to 250000kM with absolutely no trouble. We now have 150 000kM and had no major trouble. But everytime we had to go to the garage, repair were expensive due to lack of room around the motor. Cost 700$ to replace alternator a few months ago! The other annoying thing is that sliding doors freeze in winter. But overall, this van is so much better than our 99 Windstar that I cannot complain.
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.
Design, power, comfort.
Quality, quality, quality. Build something that is reliable and durable. New Quest 2011. It is ugly!
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!
6CD changer! Speed Sensitive Volume.
Oh, just do not enter the minivan segment in the market or improve quality like 4 times. Otherwise you are wasting main street's money!
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
Styling, power doors, gate lift, cargo room, Entertainment. Large interior.
