2012 Nissan Quest LE: What's The Speed Limit?
May 01, 2012
Speed limits, in case you haven't noticed, change arbitrarily. Especially in California. One mile the limit on the freeway is 65 mph and the next it's 70. We found this was particularly true on two-lane state roads in Arizona last weekend. The limit would climb to 65 and then be back to 55. Then, heading through a roadside community, you might see 35 mph.
The Quest's nav system does a fairly reliable job of telling its driver the limit on the road they're using. Certainly it doesn't keep up in the most remote areas, but I found myself relying on it more than a few times last weekend.
