I am thoroughly pleased with our purchase. There is tons of interior room. The seats are wide and very comfortable. It took my wife and I a few days to get used to all the dashboard gauges having been placed in the middle, but now it is second nature. The van sits low to the ground, so you don't have to step up to get in, and the kids can climb in and out with ease. I like the tire pressure monitor and other safety features that it offers. Very, very happy!
My wife and I are 3rd generation Quest owners, having owned a 1994 and 2000 model prior to purchasing the 2006 Quest. We were initially hesitant to purchase a center-dash vehicle, and were also concerned about the thin padding on the seats and the heat factor of the multiple sunroofs. I am happy to say the center-dash was not hard to adjust to at all. The seat padding has not been an issue. (We opted for leather seating, which helped.) The vehicle we purchased did not have the multiple sunroofs, which is a benefit in Texas heat. Gas mileage is not great, but the vehicle fits our family size and lifestyle. One neat feature is the rear-facing camera that shows what is behind you before you back up. Things I would change about our particular vehicle: 1. location of the dvd player under the front passenger seat is inconvenient. 2. The model we got does not have auto headlamps and we miss that feature. 3. The center console cup holders are too tight for some cups because of the way the grips are made. Overall, we are happy with our purchase.
This van was purchased as a result of searching for something that could haul us 1500 miles one way to visit family every year. Overall, this van exhibits its 'performance' aspects with great handling for this class of vehicle, lower -feeling center of gravity, and sure-footed feedback. From the customer perspective, the dual DVD screens, only available in this make/model at the time, full control over the videos and sound for the second and third row from the front passenger seat, and abundant room (biggest in class), allowed for a 21-plus hour drive to pass almost painlessly. We drive the 04 SE version, with every option except nav (I like it that way, I can move the portable nav to any of my vehicles), which gives is all power options, including both sliding doors and rear hatch, dual front and separate rear climate controls, and leather (a must for cleaning up from the kids on the trip). The van has its quirks, Nissan could improve on the power sliding door action, and the fact that you can open the sliding doors with the fob without unlocking the van (don't set your keys down in the back and close the doors/hatch, or you're locked out!!!!!), but, 2004 was the first year for this model, and it has worked well for 60+K miles only needing maintenance and tires to this point. I'd buy another one.
