2001 Nissan Quest GLE 3.3 liter V6 from North America
Sporty, fun to drive and very reliable
The gear indicator broke, and will not read the correct gear it is driving in.
Replaced rear brakes.
Replaced front axle.
Door handle on driver's side rear sliding door.
Does not start well in winter, drives poor.
I LOVE my 2001 Nissan Quest. The van has a sporty build, and drives like a sports car with quick acceleration and smooth steering. It has enough room to comfortable seat 7 people, and includes leather sides (the front are heated). The dark grey interior is family friendly and hides stains. The tinted windows are a great privacy feature. Gas mileage is still good.
My complaint is that my Quest does not run well when temps hit below 30 - it takes a long time to warm up, brakes lock up, heater is slow to warm, and overall it just doesn't run well. Other than that, any mechanical issues I have had are related to its age, and I do not believe reflect on the quality of this vehicle.
I am happy with my 2001 Quest and anticipate many more productive years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Long warm-up in cold weather is probably due to a tired thermostat. They tend to become slow/stuck open a little on cold high-mileage Quests. My '94 started taking a while in early 2017, but I'm holding out until the next T-belt change. I drive off after a minute of idling and it gives good interior heat eventually.
Works normally in the summertime though :-)
