I first bought a used 2007 quest that had run flat tires that no one told me about from Gwinnett Place Nissan in 2010. We tried ajusting and no. Visibility is great and just an amazing vehicle. If more cargo and less passengers is necessary, the middle seats can be removed and the rear bench seat can slide forward through an elaborate slotted track system covered by a floor mat. Not even two years in my possession. They said it was cam sensors, we replaced both. I live in Land O Lakes.
I noticed when the tires had only 10k on them that all 4 were showing pretty aggressive wear. If it weren't for the transmission issues I would be quite okay with this vehicle as a cheap, comfortable family vehicle. The horn doesn't work, buttons on the steering wheel audio, volume buttons. Never will I trust Nissan again. Luckily no one was hurt and the van continued to run so I had to keep moving due to traffic. However bit by bit, the electrical system demonstrated issue after issue.
The vehicle ate through brake pads, rotors, and tires with a voracious appetite. These are the only issues I've had this far but I assume I will have plenty more being all the negative reviews this vehicle has. Consumer Affairs did reimburse me the 95. That is 8% of the purchase price we paid for the van new. Somehow it took over a week to fix and they did not give me a rental until I talked to Consumer Affairs. The cruise control once went out, and it was repaired under warranty. He has reviewed more than 4,000 new vehicles for the Sun-Times--far more than any newspaper auto writer in the country.
It is great for hauling things and taking my large dogs to the vet. As someone who can be quite neglectful of regular maintenance, the Nissan can absorb my less-than-regular upkeep better than any car I have owned. A fairly low floor height and the sliding door allow easy entry and exit. The V-6 works with an electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission, which upshifts seamlessly and downshifts quickly. Most controls work with commendable smoothness, but the small radio and climate controls are difficult for a driver to operate without taking his eyes off the road. On to buy a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna.
The first thing they told me when they called was I had too much oil in the van. It accelerates well, gives ample power under most conditions, and surprisingly is rated to tow up to 3,500 pounds, thanks to a specifically-designed torque curve which gives it more power in the low-rpm ranges. For about three years after owning this vehicle, I experienced daily buyer's regret. Yes with only 500 miles on the car the transmission is broken. Not sure what the problem is. But because I have four little kids I needed an Armada or another Quest.
I do regret buying this van, but it do get me from A-b and sometimes c. We have had to replace the brakes far too many times, and we've since been made aware that it's a common problem with this model. The Quest lacks a driver-side sliding door, but has a sliding passenger-side door and allows seven adults to sit comfortably. Nissan you would have come out much better to replace the transmission. I also bought a 04 Ford the same year. The weather strip on driver's door came off and I gorilla glued it back on.
Strange that they seemed to think I was to blame - I have never gotten a paycheck from Nissan much less designed the working system of any car. It is always smooth when accelerating and at highway speeds. Would definately reccommend that anybody looking for a minivan or similar type vehicle put it on the top of their list. I'm only giving this 3-4 stars because I really like the engine power and it's roomy. This information was not disclosed to us at the time of purchase, and now we are being questioned as to the way we drive although the service manager stated that the tires only last that long based on the vehicles construction and weight.
Gas mileage isn't that great, but I can't say if it's worse than other similar vans. With all seats in their original places, there's room for seven inside, with a small amount of luggage space leftover behind the rearmost seat. Cam sensors, motor mounts, interior electrical is entirely out. Prototypes went into initial testing in 1990 at Ford and Nissan test tracks, later real-world testing throughout 1991, with development concluding at the end of that year. Even though the tires are holding up better than the previous 3 sets, that can change quickly with the alignment issue so I have to stay diligent about that.
This car is perfect for the family! The Quest would not return to Canada until the third-generation model arrived in 2003. Most minivans look pretty much alike. My grandmother also has a Nissan. Original review: March 11, 2016 I bought a Nissan Quest last week from Nissan Jenkins Lakeland. Seats are small and you feel like your sliding out. When I could finally stop, I discovered the chrome trim strip above the grill had broken off and that is what flew off.
