2012 Nissan Quest: Manageable
June 12, 2012
I love minivans. I've wanted to own a minivan since before I had kids (if I'm being completely honest, I wanted one before I was married, so maybe I'm weird). But, like a lot of people, I don't always like how large they feel from behind the steering wheel.
The Quest is a little smaller than the top-selling minivans, that is the perfect size minivan for me. I don't need to carry eight passengers (unlike the competition, it only seats seven) and I don't need ultimate-maximum cargo capacity.
It also doesn't feel enormous, like most of the other minivans. I love that the third row doesn't seem like it's in another zip code when I turn around or look in the rearview mirror. The Quest is a perfectly manageable minivan.
