Faults:

Problems with brakes/rotors.

Press accelerator, but van doesn't move. Dealer in so many words said they couldn't do anything about it. This really scared me as my 17-year-old son has been the one driving at a time when this has happened. You just don't know when it's going to happen; in my opinion this is very dangerous - what if you're on the freeway and you can't accelerate - talk about a bad accident potential.

Very poor interior quality. Ceiling lights are forever falling out of the ceiling.

Rattling noises from side doors are annoying.

Front doors get stuck often and you have to pull very hard to get the doors open. I think it has something to do with the rubber in the doors.

The dealer's solution to the problem is for the customer to buy the extended warranty on a car that they presented as reliable and, in fact, is not. I think Nissan should extend the warranty to 5 years/60,000 miles to all 2004 Quest owners. That is the very least Nissan can do if they really want to lose its customers. If nothing happens, I will not buy another Nissan.

Summary:

Our grey baby is adored to death by our loving family!!

Faults:

Nothing at all.

General Comments:

Wow, where do we begin with comments about this van? Everything that will be said is great!

First and foremost is that we absolutely adore this minivan to death! Any minivan is better than our former 1997 Grand Caravan that we hated and had for 7 years.

Getting back to how we adore this minivan to death. Well, we fell in love with it when we first set eyes on it. We have 2 kids and a border collie, so we wanted a minivan with style and cool features. So we went to our Nissan dealer and looked at these. A friend of ours has an identical one to ours, and just loves it. Ours has the dual entertainment screens along with the glass plates in the roof (Skyview roof). And yes, it has all of the power buttons as well.

When my husband and I test drove one, which was the SE model, we knew that we wanted one that badly. The salesman had 6 of the SE models on the lot. We chose a grey one with the rouge leather interior and with all of the goodies in it.

Our 2 kids fell in love with the van as well. Even the dog loved it, too. This minivan rides so beautifully, even after owning it for 2 years.

And space? Well, it has loads of that! We use it for numerous issues, mostly for grocery shopping and road trips. The seats are sofa comfy, and great for road trips.

We definitely have no immediate plans on getting rid of this minivan anytime soon. It has extremely faithful to us and our kids. I am a registered nurse, and a few of my employees want one of these so badly.

So if you thought that the older version of the Nissan Quest was great, you must set your eyes on the newer version. It is way better, more roomier, and very family friendly. Again, we adore this minivan to death, and you will do so, too! Trust us, they are perfect for first time moms, great soccer mom minivans, or just a perfect family minivan for those road trips in mind.

Summary:

What could be many favorable attributes are outweighed by one serious problem which isn't resolved

Faults:

ONE major problem - The car refuses to start, the key won't even turn. Several dealers have been contacted and we are advised that its only a rod out of line and if we "jerk" the steering wheel we'll be able to start it. When asked to repair the problem we are told that we'll just have to live with it.

General Comments:

The company's inability to resolve the issue overshadows any other concerns.
