2012 Nissan Quest LE: The Rug Fit
June 19, 2012
This weekend I need a big car. A really big car. I needed to haul a six-foot long rug and four people to grandma's house.
A traditonal car was out, even a big sedan like our Audi A8L wasn't getting this job done. So I started looking at the crossovers we have. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 would get us to Grandee's the quickest, but it is way too small for this job.
The Ford Explorer and the Infiniti JX35 were serious possibilities, but my eyeball tape measure told me they were borderline biggable. I could have probably made either work, but I didn't want to have to fold or smash the carpet and then ask my wife for forgiveness. Remember, happy wife happy life.
So I turned to the Nissan Quest. The rug and people fit with room to spare. No muss. No fuss. No stress. Gotta love the minivan.
