2007 Nissan QuestMinivan Man - Chicago, IL07/22/2011
2007 Quest SL with 40K miles. So far everything works as it should. Great power, actually fun to hit corners hard. Excellent dash layout-really cool gauges, and center stack puts the buttons so close to reach. Love the back-up camera. Love the left/right heat zones (and rear of course). TONS of room in middle/back for 4 kids, storing their stuff under seats for trips. Really cool how 3rd row seat is elevated, no one feels crammed in the back. Have folded down all the seats into the floor several times already - genius, better than Chrysler stow-n-go (no multi-hinged panels in the floor catching crums, way more comfy seats). Just towed our 2800lb. pop-up into smokey mtns in 90 degree heat, AC on, kept it in 4th gear and never dropped below 70mph - awesome power (added aftermarket trans-fluid cooler and rear suspension support). Only downside is the front seats - not very comfortable. I added a thin foam pad hanging down from the headrest, as the seat (on every Quest we drove) caves in about half-way up your back. It's decent now.
I'm really impressed with this van and look forward to many years with it, we love driving it.
The Quest is a big minivan. This might appear to be an oxymoron, but this is probably the most spacious minivan out there--can even feel a bit bulky. The one I got was not quite as advertised, but Nissan Quest itself has proven trustworthy to me hence I simply replaced an older model Quest with 148000 miles.
For those in the market for a compact hatchback, the Chevrolet Spark is a top contender. With sleek styling and easy maneuverability, the Chevrolet Spark packs a lot into a small package. Check out our review of the Chevrolet Spark to learn more.
