 2012 Nissan Quest: Not the Miniest Minivan

After a week of hauling around Girl Scout cookies, I took the Quest to the car wash this morning to get it a much needed bath. While I was waiting for it to be dried, a man crossed the parking lot and asked about the Quest.

"It's nice," he said. "Real nice."

I thanked him, and he asked, "A '12?"

"Yep," I said.

"And big," he said. "What's it hold, 10 or 12?"

"People?" I asked. "This is a seven-passenger."

"Too bad," he said, shaking his head. "A van that big should hold at least 10."

Sure, it's bigger than the old Quest, but comparable to a cargo van? Do you think the new design makes it look that large?
