I never thought I would enjoy driving a minivan until now
By 08outtie on
2012 Nissan Quest SL 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
A great vehicle thru and thru. The styling is unlike all the other typical minivan on the market, so in a way, I feel that it is less like a minivan. I like the boxy style at the back, although I would understand that it is a love it or hate it styling.
I love the CVT on the Quest. I test drove a Cube couple years back and it was so loud and straining at all RPM. I think the problem with the Cube was the small engine.
With the Quest's 3.5L engine, the CVT is quiet and extremely smooth.
The interior is just unbelievable for a minivan. It basically is a carbon copy of the Infiniti's interior design. Fit and finish is top notch. I guess that's the result of the vehicle being built in Japan.
CVT, power lift gate, simple fold flat seats
have touch screen controls instead of the dial/joystick control.
