Amazing reliability...keep the oil changed regularly, the tires inflated and the gas tank filled, this "drives-like-a-car" minivan will take you further and longer for less.
Tremendous cargo space is available when needed; the foldup-slide forward middle seat opens up a sumptuous cavern that has moved its share of tonnage.
The V-6 engine is a peppy road burner, yet still delivers 22-26 mpg on the highway after 150K miles, if you have the proper foot for it.
I had no problems with my Quest except
for normal wear and tear. I've heard

to pay almost half the cost, but it was
still plenty expensive. Other than
that, I like the car a great deal and
plan to drive it until it simply falls
