Model Highlights

If you are looking for a minivan with all the safety and people-moving practicality but with unique styling, then look no further than the 2008 Nissan Quest.

A number of design cues separate the Quest from the rest of the minivans on the market, including its long shoulder lines and large incorporated headlights. The interior also shows the Nissan designers' willingness to be different. Case in point is the center stack, with the easy-to-reach shift lever sprouting from the console.

Like a number of Nissan's products, the Quest has a horsepower rating that is near the top of its segment. The 235-horsepower 3.5L V6 is shared with the Maxima and Altima, and is impressive for its smoothness and torqueiness. A five-speed automatic is standard across the board. The driving experience is ahead of other minivans, with the Quest's crisper feel and smooth ride.

The base Quest comes well equipped with anti-lock brakes, traction control, speed-sensitive wipers, front and rear air conditioning, remote keyless entry, cruise control, an alarm system, and power mirrors, locks, and windows. The S trim adds power sliding doors, as well as a power liftgate. A dash-mounted entertainment system and a tow package are optional on both of these trims.

The SL gets 16-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, a power driver's seat and adjustable pedals, HomeLink, auto on/off headlights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror, among other items. The top-level SE upgrades wheels to 17-inch alloys, and adds a host of luxury items. The popular SkyView panoramic glass-paneled roof is added, as are heated seats, fog lamps, overhead storage, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, and a Bose audio system that is one of the best found in a minivan today.

The SkyView roof can be added to the SL, as can a number of other items found standard on the SE. Both of the up-market trims can order a navigation system or tow package, and the SE can also add a two-screen entertainment system to keep back-seat riders occupied.


Model News

Reintroduced in 2004 as Nissan's sole entry in the minivan market, the Quest undergoes few changes for 2008. On the base trim, an in-cabin filter is now standard as well as luggage roof rails. The S trim standard equipment was reshuffled a bit for 2008; rear back-up sonar is now included in the Driver's Package instead of being standard. On the SL trim, the headlights gain automatic on/off function, and audio controls are now mounted on the steering wheel, while the air conditioning system is upgraded to an automatic dual-zone setup. On the top of the line SE trim, Bluetooth is now standard equipment.


Value Writeup

Minivans typically concentrate on practicality, safety, and reliability; Nissan's 2008 Quest stands apart from the crowd by virtue of its looks. The Quest's 235-horsepower V6 is one of the strongest powerplants in its class, and driving dynamics are definitely better than most of its competitors.

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008-2010 TITAN, ARMADA, AND INFINITI QX56, AND MODEL YEAR 2008-2009 NISSAN QUEST VEHICLES. THE BRAKE PEDAL PIVOT PIN END WAS NOT SPIN-FORMED TO SPECIFICATION DURING THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF THE BRAKE PEDAL ASSEMBLY. THE PIVOT PIN COULD SLIDE AND CAUSE THE BRAKE PEDAL TO PARTIALLY DISENGAGE FROM THE BRAKE PEDAL BRACKET.

Consequence
THE DRIVER WILL EXPERIENCE UNUSUAL AND NOTICEABLE LOOSENESS IN THE PEDAL AND A REDUCTION IN BRAKING FORCE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT TO SEE IF THE PIVOT PIN HAD BEEN FORMED PROPERLY AND WILL REPLACE THE BRAKE PEDAL ASSEMBLY IF NECESSARY FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE MARCH 22, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
