Reviews for Nissan Quest
Great Car, Just FLUSH THE TRANSMISSION YEARLY
The Nissan Quest was an excellent minivan. The only issue is the transmission. The year before we bought a high-mileage 2012 Quest LE from a third-party used car dealer. Within a month we had a catastrophic transmission failure. We bought a 2007 Quest from CarMax in 2007 and got 240,000 miles from it before the engine gave out in 2019. We flushed the transmission fluid every year- that’s the key. We lost the other 2012 Quest (with the pricey new transmission!) to a collision. It kept everyone so safe that we bought a 2013 from CarMax. It was fine for a couple of months but after some strange noises, the Dealership ID’d an issue with the transmission. One flush later it’s running great, and we expect will for years to come.
- Interior Space: Outstanding leg room for teenagers, plenty of nooks and cup holders for all passengers.
- Cargo Space:
- Styling: We haven't found a better-looking van to date. Not bad for a discontinued model!
- Fuel Economy: Our 2007 had excellent fuel economy. Somehow this newer model give us less... maybe since the RPMs are higher downhills than the older model is that the tranny doesn't disengage when it doesn't get power?
- Reliability: After a couple of months we heard a whining noise. The transmission fluid was burned. FLUSH THE TRANS FLUID yearly.
- Cabin Noise: Cabin noise is loud only because the only rear recharging stations is in the cargo space. Great for family conversations on long trips, but makes for a loud cabin!
Not 5-star, but easily 4 and a half stars!
Strong engine, smooth ride, and it handles well, though a bit truck-like. We've loved the comfort of driving long distances in it, and by how easy the power doors and liftgate have made shopping and taking care of kids. The only thing it's missing is telepathic communication, but that's probably coming. It's a bit jumpy off the line, but power delivery is smooth from then on, with more power than you'll find in almost any other van. The continuously variable transmission makes shifts unnoticeable, which is nice when accelerating with sleeping kids in the back. It whines a bit, but not enough to be a nuisance. And THE LEATHER. It's the softest I've ever felt in a vehicle. It feels more like a Lexus than a Nissan, with wonderful fit & finish.
- Power: Smooth and strong, good passing power.
- Seat Comfort: Easily as luxurious as vehicles 3x the price.
- Interior Space: Everyone has elbow room, and two-layer back storage compartment makes packing for trips actually enjoyable.
- Fuel Economy: For whatever reason, it's thirstier than other vans in its class. We've been around 18 MPG average (mostly around town). The lower overall price makes up for it. You can get this in leather for just a little more than an Odyssey with fabric seats.
- Ride and Handling: Leans a bit in corners, but easy to compensate for when you stop expecting sedan-like handling.
Solid minivan for less than Honda or Toyota
It's a perfectly capable, well-appointed, all around great family vehicle. Gas mileage is less than most of its competitors - and I know Nissan can do better - but the tradeoff is quick and reliable power delivery. It's got a strong engine and nicely thought out storage compartments throughout the vehicle. You don't get seats that fold into the floor (con) but you do get a bi-level storage space behind the rear seat that can be as big (or small) as you need it to be. I'm enjoying driving it so far and haven't run into any issues.
