We have only put about 4,000 miles on this so far, but as there are no reviews yet, I thought I would get something started here. It seems to be mechanically strong. A lot of pep in the 3.3l V6 on the lower end. 24mpg hwy and about 19 or 20mpg in the country or in town. With just 78k miles on the van, we put $700 into the rear AC. I thought this was a bit early, but this is out first minivan, so I don't know. The van is comfortable to drive and ride in. The suspension is just a bit spongy on our back country roads. The interior plastic handles (to move seatbacks and such) are mostly broken off. I have not looked into replacing them yet. We bought this based on reviews of high reliability. We are happy with the van, all said and done. Our first choice is a Toyota Sienna, which tends to cost several thousand dollars more, so we may strive for that when we get another van.

Great Diving Vehicle

I found this Quest an excellent buy for the money. I also like that you have no timing belt to replace. A timing chain can last for over 300,000 miles and that is also a big plus. I would highly recommend this all-purpose Quest.

The car I like best

I just got rid of one of these vehicles after 5 years of owning it. I had nearly 300,000 miles on it and was still in pretty good shape. I plan to purchase a newer Quest. I loved driving it. The only regret I have is not listening to my Mechanic when he told me that my Engine mount was broke and I should fix it(don't surprise me, I drive in and around Chicago, their streets will tear up any vehicle). The Engine mount being broke led to some exhaust problems and I drove this van for over 50,000 miles with the engine light on. This vehicle was still running(it was just loud) when I sold it to a Mechanic that knocked on my door(a friend of my neighbor's) to inquire about it because it had been sitting in the driveway for a couple of months. I've driven a lot of vehicles, but my next purchase will be another Quest. I really like the newer body style of this model.
