This was reliable, and has space for a small family like mines. No complaints, if I have a choose for another option it will by this Nissan Quest .

2005 Nissan Quest Good value

by from Colorado Springs Colorado on May 12, 2017

We bought our used Nissan Quest mini van with 126k on it. We had driven other minivans with 2.5L, 3.8L, and 3.5L engines all with 4spd auto trannys. This van beat them all for handling, comfort and ...
We bought our used Nissan Quest mini van with 126k on it. We had driven other minivans with 2.5L, 3.8L, and 3.5L engines all with 4spd auto trannys. This van beat them all for handling, comfort and overall performance. It gets as good as the other best mpg mini van we had before plus it has real power from it's 3.5L v6 engine. Even my minivan that had the 3.8L didn't touch this one for smooth reliable acceleration. It feels very stable and not a typical wobbly mini van ride. The only drawback is that the instrument cluster is located dead center in the dashboard and that the controls for many functions are clustered together in such a way that they are difficult to find even after a couple of months of driving. Still,it is the best I say the best minivan we have owned or driven. And it is huge inside with awsomely comfortable seats. Great climate control and interior quality. Hwy at 70mph we get 22mpg and at 75 about 21mpg. In town driving yields between 15 & 16mpg.

Reading reveiws ,wonder if I've got a lemon. Bought this van new and pleased with the look and comfort. Constant rattle noise coming from side door. Driver power window went out but covered with warranty.The big problem is the brake system in these vehicles. Had brakes and rotors turned around 15,000. I have 50,000 on this and doing these rotors again for the 4 th. time The 3 rd. was just 3,000 ago.No satisfaction from dealer and less from Nissan Corp.if ever a recall.Corp agent had an additude also.I'll pay more for the Honda next.

Disappointed with Nissan

We have had this car for 5 years this September of 2010. We bought it brand new. I love the features it has. We have the top of the line model of the SE with Skyview and Dual DVD player screens. The luxury of the van is wonderful. My only complaint is the mechanical features of this van. Nissan has a cheaply made plastic protection under the front part of the car that has come apart twice. It's put back together with plastic tabs. The transmission also started slipping at 40,000 and we were able to get that covered. Now the engine has a faint knocking sound and when we took it to the dealer at least twice about it, they couldn't hear the knocking. We have taken it back for the 3rd time in the last 8 months and have found out that the teeth that hold the chain to turn the engine is failing and was quoted $2100 to repair since they have to pull the engine out to fix this. We started to hear the noise at 63,000 miles and the warranty ended at 60,000. Not sure if I want to own another Nissan again. Will probably stick with Hondas.

Bought a 2005 Quest new and now have 4 kids and 90,000 miles on it...so I feel very qualified to review. This car was an excellent value and has been extremely reliable. I love the trendy styling, the seat comfort, and the ample storage behind the 3rd row. My biggest disappointment is road noise, but you probably need to buy a more luxurious model for that.

If you've gotta get a minivan...

After a lifetime of sports cars and smaller SUVs, my wife and I had baby number three. If you're looking at minivan reviews, chances are you're facing the same situation- Fight the obvious and get a crossover, or go soccer mom and get a minivan. Neither of us really desired the van, but we knew it was the right vehicle at this point in our lives. We test drove many competing vehicles, and while every one of them was missing some key thing we wish we had, the Nissan Quest ultimately won based on style, handling, and that bulletproof Nissan VQ V-6 engine. After a few months of ownership, here's what we've seen: Pros: Looks different than all the other vans in the parking lot. No seats to take out- all of the rear seats fold flat, allowing the vehicle to swallow sofas, toddler beds, and plywood with ease. Great Bose stereo. Great low-end torque. Panoramic sunroof is novel and the kids love it. Cons: Like most heavy vehicles, it's a bit on the thirsty side. We see 17 mpg city, 25 hwy. The backup sensor failed on us, and according to the web forums, this is a very common failure. Some people complain about there being no split in the rear seat, but this doesn't have any impact on us. If you end up in a position where a minivan makes sense in your life, but you want something with a little character, I'd definitely recommend taking a look at the Nissan Quest.

My parents have owned several vans, but this was their first Nissan. When shopping this time, we decided to look at the Quest because the engines in our previous vans had been made by Nissan. When the salesman opened the doors and I climbed into the back seat, I was sold! At 5'8" with very long legs, it has always been an issue of who I sat behind in a vehicle. My father is a little over 6' and he puts his seat way back. In the quest, he can scoot his seat back to the fullest and I still have enough room to cross my legs easily! Even in the 3rd row seats I have room, thanks to the 2nd row seats that have two positions. We have been very happy with this vehicle and have driven it over 60,000 miles (we bought it used with 35,000 miles on it) across many states. It's time for a new vehicle and my father, who is a shopper who is not satisfied until he drives EVERY vehicle on 15 lots, says he is not even going to look at any other vans!! The only problems we have had is a transmission failure (as of about 4 days ago) which insurance covers. I also don't care for the placement of the speedometer, but that is changed on the newer models.

This is the first van I've ever owned. We are a family of 5, three being in car seats. We love the idea of side curtain airbags for our children. That and the comfort (after test driving Toyota Sienna) sold us. Love the fact that the base vehicle came with power windows, power locks, keyless entry, tinted privacy glass, and the side curtain airbags. Toyota and Honda couldn't compare in features for the price. Never had a problem with it in the three years I owned it. I totaled it out though and have been searching ever since to buy another 2005. Thankfully we found a decent used one last night!! Our first one was purchased new. I'm hoping this used one lives up to the reputation the previous one had for us.
