2013 Nissan Quest Reviews

Vehicle Overview

Nissan's Quest minivan can seat up to seven people in three rows. It competes with the Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. It comes in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and LE.
New for 2013
A backseat DVD entertainment system is now available on SV models, and a surround-view camera system now comes on the LE trim.
The Quest is distinguished by black pillars that combine with tinted rear and side windows to lend a floating-roof appearance. All trim levels have a prominent chrome grille strip, chrome door handles and a spoiler atop the squared-off rear end. Exterior features include:

  • 16-inch steel wheels are standard
  • 18-inch alloy rims are available
  • Available power-sliding side doors
  • Available moonroof
  • Available xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Available power liftgate

The Quest seats seven, with three seats in the third row and two captain's chairs forming the second row. The captain's chairs flank a removable center console. All five rear seats can be folded forward to form a flat cargo floor. Because the third row folds forward rather than back, there's a deep well behind it that remains usable even when the seats are flat. A rigid cover over the well keeps the load floor continuous when the seats are lowered. In the SL and LE, the two third-row segments are spring-loaded to fold flat at the pull of a lever. A power seatback return feature comes on the LE trim. Interior features include:

  • Standard cloth upholstery
  • Available leather with heated front seats
  • Available memory feature for driver's seat
  • Available backup camera
  • Available iPod and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Available navigation system
  • Available Bose stereo
  • Available backseat entertainment system

Under the Hood
A 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine teams with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:

  • Front-wheel drive
  • Runs on regular gas

The standard tire pressure monitoring system includes Nissan's Easy Fill Tire Alert, which flashes the hazard lamps to confirm when a tire is being filled with air and also chirps the horn when the specified pressure is reached so you know to remove the air hose. Safety features include:

  • Front seat-mounted side-impact airbags
  • Front-seat active head restraints
  • Side curtain airbags protect all three seat rows in the event of a side-impact collision or rollover
  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Available blind spot warning system
  • Available surround-view camera system

Learn More About Warranties

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
