Front brakes had been a consistent problem for the first 4 years of ownership. Squeals a lot and the dealership can't fix it even after repeated tries. No problems afterward.
The brake failed twice - step on the brake and no response - resulted in 1 rear-end and 1 near-miss!!! Dealer again can't find the problem.
A/C failed last year and now again. I'm trading in the van for a new 2003 Altima.
Considering the weight of this van, the brakes are adequate at best. Fades easy in lengthy city traffic or when fully loaded.
Radio button sucks. Hard to read/feel while driving - advise not to touch them on the move. Other controls are fine though.
Engine and transmission had been dead reliable all these years. No major problem at all, just regular maintenance and gas. Starts everyday in Canadian winter at 5am! Mechanicals are from Nissan Maxima after-all (big plus)!
Interior design and quality of materials are very good - try compare a 94' domestic-brand minivan and see the HUGE difference! Recipient of Interior Design Gold Reward if I remember right. Feels upscale once inside.
Adequate, if not abundant, power in general. However I did went over the speedo once on a lonely highway. Estimated at 175km/h with 4 adults on board, speedo max at 160km/h.
Take out the 2nd row bench/captain chairs and voila! You have a limo!!! Stretch out your legs and you still have 2 feet of space for luggage in front. Perfect for trips of 4 for long highway drive.
Considering myself as a caring user, the interior still looks like new after nearly 10 years of DAILY USE. VERY little wear and tear. Very good!
Space is tight with all 3 rows of seat though.
Overall dealer service is average. Not quite at Lexus-level nor get you yell at them.
