Trade in 1999 Mercury Villager (Quest clone) with 120K miles. Except for tach, everything still worked. We thought that the Nissan Quest would be as reliable and useful but now we are wondering if the extra cost of a Honda or Toyota would have been a better choice. Maybe we should have bought used. On the way home, the button that slides the seatbelt adjuster up and down broke and fell into the door post. This was after 30 minutes of ownership. Three days later, my wife tells me that the A/C does not seem to blow as cold as it did when we got it.
Much bigger and roomier than our old minivan. Power to spare, especially when loaded with 4 grandkids. Love the regular instrument location and dash mounted shifter. Center instrument cluster would have been a deal breaker. Thank goodness no CVT but a nice 5 speed. Flat folding seats are great.
Add a real center console! We added a tupperware bowl under the flat panel to hold items. Real tacky but functional. Front seats have no thigh support. Extend cushion. Need to see odometer but have an option to hide the trip odometer readings. Very annoying. Waffle pattern on seats hold dirt.
