2007 Nissan Quest 3.5 S 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
i'm one of those "i will never drive a minivan" people. then i became a parent, and quickly realized that the only way to successfully transport said baby and his entorage was do (gulp) get a bigger car! we looked at toyota and honda before settling on the quest. for the price, it had a lot of the features that cost $10K more in the ohter two brands! not to mention it was by far the best looking...not that hideous girly shape. we also LOVE all the interior room, and the 3.5 engine (same one as the z car) has a lot of get-up-and-go that i totally didn't expect. i enjoy driving it in spite of myself, and my son's car seat goes in and out effortlessly.
the interior room, safety, styling, and drive-ability. we decided not to get the dvd system, and bought an aftermarket one instead, but if we had it, i'm sure it would be a favorite!
