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.
Good value, good car!
2012 Nissan QuestA ELLIOTT - Canton, MS09/15/2016
Very roomy. Can comfortably seat six even with 3 car seats. I'm 6'4" and I've got lots of legroom. Gas mileage isn't great ~18-19 mpg. Ours came with a strong smoke odor that we've not been able to fully expunge yet but we're still trying. So-so acceleration but that's expected in a van, but it drives better than a van. That's our only real complaint.
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.
