2012 Nissan Quest: Road Trip Notes

No surprise that our Nissan Quest is a great road trip vehicle, but I still learned a few things on our way to Monument Valley.

1. You can't have too many cupholders. Mainly because they're really good for holding just about anything. Sure, you might only have a few drinks going at one time, but you also need someone to stash spare change, a pair of binoculars and a big wad of napkins.

2. It's nice to have a real power outlet. The Quest has a 120V outlet in the center console that charges up phones and tablets way faster than your average USB port.

3. The CVT/V6 combo in this van works well for passing on the highway. Once it finds the sweet spot it just sits there until you've made your pass. I grew to like it.

4. Definitely make a reservation at The View hotel so you can have a scene like this when you look out your window in the morning.

Plenty more to come later.
