2012 Nissan Quest: Pushing Its Buttons
February 16, 2012
It's a pretty minor thing, but I dig the push-button releases for our Quest's power sliding rear doors. One press and voila, the door opens. Granted, it's not very different than normal minivan door operation where you just pull on the handle to open the door. The Quest has that functionality, too. But the button (as does the handle) works even if the van is locked, as our Quest has the keyless ignition/entry feature (Nissan's "Intelligent Key").
If your hands are full of stuff (which is common as a parent), being able to unlock and open the sliding door just by pressing a button is a nice little touch.
