2009 Nissan Quest 3.5 S 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I was also considering Honda, Toyota, Hyundai and Kia. Hyundai cars are great but vans have all sorts of electrical/mechanical issues; Kia is a Hyundai with stripped down interior so they were out. Honda & Toyota bored me to tears, also much more expensive. I resisted buying a minivan for years but am enjoying the Quest. Looks and feels great. Build quality is even better than I expected. Handling is crisp, steering sharp, powertrain is strong and smooth. I traded from a small car so the mileage is not as good but still around 19 in town (with a light foot) and actually over 24 on the highway! Very pleased.
My little boy loves the power sliding door; the power hatch is great for when my hands are full. Good sound system and DVD is nice to have. Seats are comfortable. Rear air conditioning is great!
