2009 Nissan Quest 3.5 SE 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
The Nissan is the only van I've ever owned that drives like a well-made SUV rather than like a van. Steering is responsive, the engine seems confident and responsive, and the mushy ride of my prior Sienna & Odyssey is nonexistent here. The seating is more comfortable. The Bose stereo is much better than my two prior vans, making even XM sounds good. Nissan should have gone one step further and designed the second row seats to fold absolutely flat rather than almost flat. The central command console/stack is a bit too large and rounded, intruding slightly into the knee area. An intuitive redesign of climate & sound system would help, as would improved iPod integration.
Fun to drive. Great sound system. Not having to remove seats! Responsiveness. Comfort.
More cupholders in front. More storage cubbyholes. Less intrusive dash. Better iPod integration. Fold-flat seats (rather than fold almost-flat seats). Front parking sonar/sensors.
