Pros: pod controls and dvd players excellent image
Cons: poor gas milage
Advice: Its great. Try it and don't sterotype this one as a 'mama cub scout carring minivan'Have had my new 2004 Smoke metallic quest for 2 weeks and I love it! Went to the Smokey mountains and never heard a peep from the kids in the back. The cordless headphones and dvd player are a must for long drives. Very smooth and comfortable driving. The look is fabulous, it is not your typical 'minivan look'. On the negative side, we did not even get close to the '26' mpg on the highway. And the windsheild wiper fluids are easily depleated. There is a slight pull when the van is changing gears. Overall I must say that I am very happy with the van. Almost all who peer inside say 'Wow..it is so futuristic..Almost like a spaceship control panel' I really thought it would be difficult getting used to the speedometer and visual panel being in the center of the dashboard and not right under the steering wheel. It took me about 2 days to really get the feel of it. Now it is not an issue. There is storage space for almost everything except your garage door opener!
Pros: Looks and roominess.
Cons: Instruments are hard to see in direct sunlight.
Advice: You can't go wrong. Just enjoy the modernity of your new car.The Nissan Quest 3.5 SE has more leg and headroom in all three rows of seating. In other mini-vans I have owned the passengers in the second row (behind the driver) had very little leg room if the driver used a lot of room. In the Quest, the second seat are adjustable and offer plenty of leg room. The vehicle is beautiful inside and out and does not look like most other mini-vans on the road.
Pros: Sky View Roof - Body Styling Unique from a typical minivan
Cons: Wish it had doors that locked automatically upon putting the car in gear and/or reaching a certain speed
Advice: A must see if you're in the market for a minivan. Not your typical 'mom mobile'.Must see for minivan buyers! I was set on getting one of the new Toyota Siennas. After waiting for what seemed like forever I decided to go check out the new Quest - and I'm GLAD I did. This is not your typical minivan as it has style and a very luxury car-like ride. Very quiet smooth engine/transmission - lots of wonderful interior appointments - sky view roof is awesome.
Cons: Almost everything
Advice: Don't waste your money!This car shined like a bulb in the test drive, but after I bought it, things started going wrong. For some reason, this car burns oil like nothing I've ever seen. The day after I took delivery, things literally started falling apart. The car is poorly painted and things are starting to peel. What an incredible lemon!
Pros: Memory seating best thing ever invented
Cons: color options to few
Advice: buy for your needs not the salesmens selling points if its not right look aroundMy wife is disabled, and for her to like the ease of operating this minivan says alot. It was not modified for her in any way.
