2002 Nissan Quest GXE 3.3 gas from North America
Good overall mini van. Used value is good. You can buy the Mercury Villager at least a $1000 cheaper
Struts replaced at 58,000 miles to try and get rid of the creaking sound, which still remained. I have learned this to be a common issue, which does not effect the ride or handling. I had a similar problem on my 97 and 98 Quests too.
The van has plenty of power, and with the aftermarket tires and rims, it drives like a much sportier car. Doesn't have touchy steering feel of the Caravans I have owned prior.
The body is built by Ford, which it shares its structure with the Mercury Villager, but has a 3.3 ltr. Nissan engine (not a Ford).
It's been pretty comfortable on trips, but lacks a little cargo space in the rear when the van is full of occupants.
I prefer the two sliding doors and a middle bench seat over the middle row buckets for accessing the rear seat.
I have averaged about 19-20 mpg on the highway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
