Loading Please Wait...


Description:
The 2009 Nissan Quest continues as the most distinctive and original minivan on the market – as well as one of the roomiest minivans in its segment. Following a major redesign just two years ago, changes for 2009 are minimal. The 2009 Quest is offered in four well-equipped models – 3.5, 3.5S, 3.5SL and 3.5SE.

The Nissan Quest powertrain comes from its standard 235-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, 5-speed automatic transmission and responsive suspension design. A Traction Control System (TCS) is also standard, while Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) is standard on the 3.5 SE model.

Road car handling is not an afterthought with the Quest. The Nissan Quest features a 4-wheel independent suspension with a rear multi-link design and front and rear stabilizer bars. Power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering is also standard, along with 4-wheel vented disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Brake Assist (BA) and Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD).

Standard Quest safety features include Nissan’s Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt and occupant classification sensors, front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags and roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags for outboard occupant head protection for all three rows, front seat Active Head Restraints and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

Review 1 of 124

Price Paid:  $24500.00 from Browns in Sterling V

Year / Model Reviewed:
2009 Quest S w/Dvd pwr dvr package

Strengths:
HANDLING, Price, Steering and looks.

Weaknesses:
DVD system I have the Panasonic the supposed upgrade it leaves something to be desired....

Summary:
this Vehicle handles better than the Odyssey PERIOD. I dare you to test drive both. The Odyssesy Dvd is better though. But with the 3000 rebate + the dealer will come off of 2500 at least. This Van is solid and has no issues. the power train might be the strongest in Mini vans for durability. Nissan is tough

Review 2 of 124

Price Paid:  $26000.00 from David McDavid

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Quest S

Strengths:
Nice cockpit layout. Good heat and a/c. Easy to walk around inside. Comfortable seats. Great visibility. Haven't gone on many long trips, but was able to observer 25 MPH on a long stretch.

Weaknesses:
The Dealer-David McDavid Nissan of Houston-were complete clowns. There isn't enough room here to explain the problems, but I literally had to STAND ON A TABLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SHOWROOM AND YELL LIKE A MADMAN TO GET THEM TO DO THEIR JOBS in the following MONTHS after the sale. I will ride the bus before I buy another vehicle from those idiots.

Summary:
We compared this with the Honda and Toyota minivans. The Honda's interior screamed '1996', and the Toyota had the same sized engine as the Nissan with 25 less horse power.

Review 3 of 124

Price Paid:  $28995.00 from Tom Eskns Nissan

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Quest

Strengths:
nice body styling, handling

Weaknesses:
weird problems that service cannot diagnose and fix after repeated attempts. Gas mileage

Summary:
Great looking vehicle, roomy, and innovative. We liked the overall appearance and roominess in the vehicle for our three kids (8yr, 5yr, and 1 yr old). Nice and low to ground helps with loading/offloading the kids and grocery, etc. BUT, we've had this thingin the shop 8 times in the last 3 months. We've had isseus with the transmission, leaks around front windshield (gasket problem), the right side passenger door sensor has had to replaced twice already. Most recently, we've noticede that the acceleration is sometime sluggish, and the engines almost dies. After a while, the problem seems to go away. The dealer suggested that we run premium gasoline (had been using mid grade) but that has not made the probelm go away. When this hapens, we;ve noticed a lot of exhaust smoke. On first trip in, service tech replaced throittle sensor...did not fix problem. This time, the repair tech says that the problem may be with the fuel injection system, but is not certain. After changing injectors, problem is STILL happening. The other day I noticed that there was a lot of exhaust residue on my rear panel (next to exhaiust pipe). Service department says nothing is wrong, but engine doesn;t run normally, and gas mileage SUCKS even with premium grade ($3.15 gal) fuel.

Price Paid:  $35000.00 from Tim Dahle Nissan, Sa

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Nissan Quest

Strengths:
none.

Weaknesses:
Total and utter mechanical flop. The van cannot hold and alignment. Have gone through 4 sets of tires in 87K miles. The engine went out 2 days after repair the transmission failed. Nissan gave their typical it is out of warranty excuse.

Summary:
Do not buy ever. Unless you have deep pockets and have nothing better to do with your money.

Review 5 of 124

Price Paid:  $30000.00 from Sage Nissan

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Quest

Strengths:
Enjoyable to drive. Good power. Smooth ride. Power hatch is the very best

Weaknesses:
the tire problem with limited availability and the fail safe problem and the back bench seat release, if they could fix these problems, I think it would be great

Summary:
It handles very well and has been enjoyable to drive and ride in. Previously owned a 1993 Quest and it was great. The only problem we are having is finding tires that will fit the 2004 Quest. As the result of a flattening tire (the alarm system worked great and I think it is a wonderful item to have in any auto)we went searching for new tires and have learned that there is only one tire that is made for the Quests made from 2004 to the present. They are made by Goodyear 225 65/16. In checking on line there is no other tire of that size anywhere. I checked for the 2004 we own and even for the new 2006 with the same result. You can put almost any other vehicle into tire.com and they will show you the various tires made for your vehicle. That sure makes me wonder what has been going on with Goodyear and Nissan to be so restrictive on size and what does that do to the customers who need a tire. We live in Los Angeles area and every place we contacted didn't have it in stock and would have to order it for deliver in 4 hours to 36 hr later. The local Nissan dealer (when called) said they had 4 but after they got the car decided that they only had 2 and they too had to order 2 more. The reviews of the Goodyear 225 65/16 that I have read do not have anything good to say about the tires wear (20,000-30,000 miles max) and definitely not pleased about it being the only supplier of a tire that fits the Quest. We have had noises with both the side automatic door and the rear hatch however we have found that if you open and close it again it usually makes the rattle sound disappear. We have also had trouble twice with what we think might be the transmission when the van is started. It will reverse fine but when put into Drive the engine races and the speed is very slow. One of the other reviewers stated that they had been informed by a dealer that it was a "fail-safe" mechanizm that allows the car to go only about 10 miles an hour. We have found from experience that if you stop the car turn it off and restart it that problem disappears. I would hope that they redesign the release mechanism for the back bench. For a short person and/or older person without much strength it is impossible to lower it into the rear compartment to make it flat in back. The idea of having the rear seat (back) fold flat onto the seat part and then have to grab a strap attached near the top of the seat(now furthest from where you are standing at the back door hatch) and push a button infront of the strap and pull the strap at the same time is almost if not totally impossible. For such a great van we sure wish it didn't have the tire and the fail safe problem
