My '94 Quest is a workhorse. It has 162,000 miles on it, and I use it to commute 25 miles each way to work as well as for grocery shopping and just about any light-hauling chore that comes up. After 10 years, the body is still in good shape, with no rust. I had the customary problem with the exhaust manifold bolts breaking. Tipped off that Nissan might help me, I tried to get them to pay for it. However, the car already had 145K miles on it, and they said they would give me money toward a new Nissan instead. I Also, the transmission malfunctioned at 5OK miles, but it was covered by the powertrain warranty.
From '97-'99 I commuted 500 mi. weekly in peak commuter traffic on L.I. Expressway. This car performed well in all kinds of weather and held the road when other cars were spinning out. It's quick response and easy handling has avoided close calls with a bale of hay that fell off a flatbed and other mishaps that are a part of a daily commute. We took this car to MA. and ME four adults, 2 kids in car seats and all the accompanying luggage,etc, in comfort.
I live in Missouri, and one year it snowed really bad. This van never got stuck in the snow. I only had to get the temperature fixed on it. The only thing that did it in was hitting a armadillo about the size of a cocker spaniel.
I had this van for about 3 years before someone crashed it.....It was an awesome van, with a lot of power under the hood. The color was aquamarine with gold trim and gray interior; again, an awesome combination... Took us up and down California, no problems at all. I am going to buy another one like it! I recommend it! Very safe van!
I recently purchased a used 1994 Nissan Quest from the original owner (my father) and having been driving an SUV for the past 5 years, I can tell you this was a welcome change! The drive is that of a hi priced luxury car with the storage of the minivan. This thing is very smooth and quiet. I give this vehicle an over all rating of 9.0. “Great choice for the former SUV owners”!
