Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The CD player
Cons: Air Conditioning
Advice: If the A/C and gas mileage is important to you check other vehicles.The Gas mileage is awful, 16 mpg around town. The air conditioner is designed poorly. I was asked to pay $125 FOR A RECHARGE after 18 months because it is not covered under warrenty if the service department can't find the leak that caused the recharge to be necessary. I had it recharged and the system got cooler for 3 days. I had it rechecked 1 week later and I was told that it was at peak performance. (It NEVER gets COLD). With gas going up in price I feel like I got duped and can't do anything about it. It does run fine though. A slight shimmy when I apply the breakes is also a little disturbing.
Pros: Power Sliding door and power gate
Cons: Not available for 8 seats
Advice: Make sure you like the car style1. The 3.5L V6 engine is powerful. 2. Better acceleration than Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey. 3. Smooth ride in high speed 4. Computer console 5. folding seats
Pros: Style and handling
Cons: Folding seats are difficult to fold and set back upright.
Advice: I wouls still buy this vanI had 4 recalls and my experience was favorable with Dealer and fixes made. Great riding with easy driving effort. No noise with mine.
Pros: it is unbelievably roomy.
Cons: don't have any dislikes yet.
Advice: go for it. it is a great vehicleTest drive was great. This is a powerful vehicle that has no problems taking off or accelerating. It doesn't drive like a minivan. I have had it for two months now and i am about to hit the 3000 mark. No problems so far.
Pros: the sliding doors great for kids and back up sensor
Cons: sliding doors, they don't stop until they have already crushed you bad for kids
Advice: dont, to many problemsafter testing all other vans, i liked the drive of the Quest best.The interior space can not be beat. But the constant door rattleing is a pain, I have problems with the sunroof not working, the seam is starting to leak by the driver side door, and the doors don't stop until they already have crushed you or your children!
Pros: Remote open on the sliding door and rear hatch
Cons: Slicing through my finger while trying to fold the middle seats down!
Advice: Beware the safety of folding the seats down!We loved our new Quest until I was folding the middle seats down and got my finger caught in the folding mechanism - BEWARE! On the NHTSA site I saw someone lost their finger because of this - I just lost my nail and have permanent nerve damage - Nissan denies all responsibility. We loved the safety features for our two small children, plus the cargo capacity, but now we are fearful of our own safety. This soured us on the van, although we have been satisfied with it otherwise.
Pros: Style, room and ride.
Cons: Nissan, don't be so cheap, make both side doors power. The drivers side passenger door isn't power and that's the one the driver uses most. Had to complain about something
Advice: Don't buy a minivan until you drive the Quest. It's different, a very good different!Don't have ANY rattles or problems in the first 1,100 miles of use. This car was built in late September '04 so perhaps some of the rattle issues were on earlier production runs and corrected by this fall. Only negative is getting used to turning and parking in right spaces. It rides great partly because of the long wheelbase which get even with you in a parking lot.
