Nissan quest for a large family.

2012 Nissan Quest

We had to buy a new car as we were expecting twins. I did not want a mini van, however based on our growing family it made the most sense. I liked the look of the quest and bought the basic no frills package. It has been great. No major issues. It is large enough to accommodate our family of 6. Even packing for a trip. It is roomy enough for us to be comfortable with our luggage. I should have bought the power closing doors and maybe the DVD for road trips. This has been a great car. My only issue is that at times, even in just rain is slips a bit. I replaced the tires shortly after purchase and this helped the issue, but it still happens more than it should. Otherwise it has been a really reliable, easy to drive car.

Nothing special about my car. It's very reliable.

2012 Nissan Quest SL

My car is very reliable. It doesn't have the bells and whistle like our old car but it has everything we need. I have missed some maintenance milestones and have had no problems with my car but I get them done when I remember. It has been almost 7 years since we bought the car and have only a couple minor problems. And the usual maintenance repairs such as brakes and belt replacements and a/c recharge. Since my car doesn't have all those automatic open/close doors and trunk features I haven't had to pay so much repairs in them like I used to with my old Nissan Quest which has automatic everything.

The Nissan Quest, a great value for families on the go!

2012 Nissan Quest S

The Nissan Quest is an exceptional vehicle. It allows 6 passengers (7 if tiny) to ride in comfort. There is also plenty of cargo room in the far back for whatever the needs. Our Nissan Quest is 6 years old. We have only taken it in for routine maintenance such as oil change, new tires, or brake or rotor replacement. It is a trustworthy vehicle, great comfort, and rides smooth. The features in our Quest are very basic: air conditioning, radio/CD, and a plug in for charging electronics. This vehicle has served us well.
