2004 Nissan Quest SE 3.5 from North America
Nissan Quest is JUNK
Security system failed before I took delivery of the 1st van.
The battery went bad at 7 months; roadside assistance jump started, but if I shut it off it would not restart. They told me to drive it 600 miles back to Florida without stopping the engine for repairs.
All the interior lights have broken and fallen out.
The seat material is cheap, and came apart on 3 seats.
The paint peeled off at 11 months old; Nissan refused to warranty this; it looked just like the old silver American cars used to do.
Our 2nd vans security system has been defective several times; very expensive.
In 3 years it has needed 2 new batteries besides the original, totaling 3 batteries.
The radio will not pick up well at all; the dealer said they are all like that if you do not have satellite, and they showed us other Quest vans with the same poor reception.
Sometimes the key will not turn the ignition. We have tried everything; sometimes it must get towed for this. 6 times now.
Good luck if you choose one of these. I love the appearance and style, but it is not dependable at all compared to other vehicles that I have owned (Chrysler, Chevrolet and Toyota).
I would recommend Chevrolet, Chrysler, Honda and Toyota, but never another Nissan. They were the best I hear in the 90's, but are no longer worth buying.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Buy a chevy... your scaring me, they are so horrible it is unbelievable! I bought an 2006 uplander and get rid of it at 10,000 kilometers due to everything dying and stuff literally falling apart, and I am an easy old driver! I must say that the new 2007 sienna's are the best out there without a doubt, but are pricey. to replace the uplander I bought a cheap caravan with all of the discounts from the dealership and love it! At 20,000 kms, it is still problem free, as it should be! NEVER buy a GM made van PLEASE!!!
