We did a lot of research.
Besides the Nissan Quest, we drove the Honda Odyssey (ok), Toyota Sienna (yuck), Buick Enclave (nice, but $), and Mazda 5 (great, affordable microvan).
Hands down, the Nissan Quest was our choice.
Definitely feels like driving a luxury car.
Pro reviewers should rate it higher.
Seven seats are plenty, and I don't care that they don't "stow and go," because both back rows fold flat for plenty of cargo space.
If that's really not enough, rent a U-haul.
Also, since the third row doesn't fold into the floor, you're left with cavernous storage that doesn't have to be emptied to fold the seats.
Great back-up camera and pushbutton opening 2nd row sliders--included on one of the lower trim levels!
Keyless key is cool, as is the wrap around glass look in the back.
Yes, it looks boxy, but it's a cool boxy.
Because of the squared shape, interior space (and accesss to it) is maximized.
