Our last Odyssey
By believe on
Vehicle2014 Nissan Quest SV 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
ReviewWe have ALWAYS been pretty much Honda customers. In fact, since 1977 when we purchased our first new car
we have always for the most part purchased Honda. Well times have changed. We decided this time to take the Quest for a drive. It is simply the smoothest, best looking, best interior, at least
in our honest opinion. We were fortunate enough to catch the St. Pats day sale and purchased the SV model for approx $8k off MSRP. That has to be the best deal we have ever made, but aside from that, the Quest is so comfortable. Neither the Sienna or Odyssey felt as good as the Quest. BTW, our last two vans were the Odyssey.
BTW...we purchased this van for retirement. We didn't need 8 seating.
Well, our opinion has changed on the Quest. When we reached 13000 miles on it we started having a problem with the brakes and rotors. We took it to
the dealer where we purchased it, but was told that we would have to pay to have either the rotors cut or replaced. Of course they wanted to replace the
brakes too. My wife and I have never had a problem with brakes and rotors at 13000 miles. No, we don't ride the brakes or miss use the vehicle in any way.
The other thing that really became annoying was the CVTransmission. The motor was great, but the amount of noise from the CVT to get the vehicle
up to speed was ridiculous. The gas mileage was excellent as was the wonderful quiet ride. The seats were extremely comfortable. Would I purchase
another? Maybe. Nissan needs to make their rotors bigger and thicker. Have a wonderful day everyone!
