2006 Nissan QuestZenDada - Austin, TX06/09/2007
Peppy. REALLY peppy! Handles great on the hightway, in heavy traffic, and on Texas Hill Country winding roads.
Unbelievably sexy for a mini-van.
Usability and ergonomics are exceptional, especially for the average sized woman (I am 5'5").
Back seats are captain's chairs that even my ex-husband felt comfortable in (he's 6'3").
The self-closing doors and rear hatch are a luxury that I have come to love - as well as the DVD player, and all the separate controls for sound and air throughout the vehicle. You could take tweens to Carlsbad in this bad boy and not hear a single complaint. I would not have thought I could get this kind of comfort and luxury for this price.
I have been a mini-van owner since the early 80's. I have owned mini-vans by Toyota, Chrysler/Dodge, and Pontiac/Chevrolet. I have owned two Montanas and thought I would buy a third. But I felt compelled to shop every single mini-van on the market this time. After test-driving the Quest, it was the only one that felt right - for ANY price. Don't pay more for the other brands. My next mini-van will be another Quest!
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.
