Nissan Quest 2006
Pros: exterior design
Cons: qualityI must say this is probably one of the worst vehicles I have ever owned. Overall quality is at best poor. Since I bought it new we have had to replace the sliding door power locks, the shifter lock, the AC compressor, the display panel computer, and about 20 fasteners. The lights in the entrior had to be modified to keep them from falling out of the ceiling. One of the Hubcaps broke and a factory replacement was $80.00. This is my first and last Nissan vehicle. I would not reccomend this vehicle to anyone. Stay away.
Pros: Rear sonar, back-up camera, power side and rear doors, DVD, sky view
Cons: Various interior parts break easily - vanity mirror cover, accessory binsThe appearance is aggressive enough for a dads yet refined enough for moms. The sunroof and sky view makes it look and feel large from the inside. The wide power sliding doors makes entry/exit very easy for kids & adults alike. Quality gets 3 stars due to various issues. The vanity mirror cover fell off for no reason. Various bin covers break easily. It has enough power for hauling people and stuff cross-country. Acceleration is quick and stopping is sufficient. The front tires slip sometimes during hard acceleration on wet pavement from a dead stop. The anti-slip kicks in though. Seats are comfortable once you find the right setting. Cabin can get noisy depending on the type of road you're traveling on. Overall, I'm quite happy with this van. Just hoped they came with AWD and a Hybrid/Electric engine.
Pros: The DVDs
Cons: Van is very wide you have to be careful when parkingVan has lots of space for a large family.
Pros: Inside room & comfort/ little upkeep expense
Cons: It has a bit of wind noise at 70-75 mphA very fine MiniVan, with excellent driving comfort & feel, lots of room (so much the word 'Mini' shouldn't apply), 25 MPH (actual highway) & 19-21 around town, trouble-free for six years and 60 K miles. We have no plans to replace it yet.
