2012 Nissan Quest Long Term Road Test

2012 Nissan Quest LE: 600-Mile Road Trip, Pt. 3

April 19, 2012


Ed's right that the seats in our longterm 2012 Nissan Quest are pretty plush thrones, and that there's ample space to sprawl out on them.

One thing, though -- after three hours in the saddle, I developed a solid case of dead butt. You know the feeling. No matter how much you squirm and shift, your tookus is just done with being sat upon. I didn't experience this during my two previous road trips; one of which was in our X3 (Five hours. Butt still alive.). The other trip was in our $100k Audi A8L, so, yeah, not exactly a fair comparison to our Quest. 

Maybe I'm alone here on this matter regarding the Quest's front seat comfort. Until other editors chime in with their own long-haul experiences, consider this a data point of one.
