Pros

Distinctive styling inside and out; interior space; unique SkyView glass roof; perky powertrain


Model Highlights

The Quest has rather unconventional styling for a minivan, but its powertrain fits right in with the pack. All Quest models get a smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine and front-wheel drive. The engine makes 235 horsepower, which isn't as much as some competing models, but it feels quite perky, thanks to variable valve timing, and the standard 5-speed automatic transmission quickly finds the best ratios for passing.

As is expected in a minivan, the Quest handles like a car, albeit a tall and heavy one. The 4-wheel independent suspension includes front and rear stabilizer bars, to help composure in tight corners, and 4-wheel vented anti-lock disc brakes bring secure stops with a full load and include Brake Assist to help in panic stops.

Safety-wise, the Quest includes standard front-seat side-impact airbags and active head restraints in front, along with head-curtain side bags that protect outboard occupants in all three rows. Uplevel SL and SE models include both RearView Monitor system provides a camera view on the navigation screen whenever reverse is engaged, as well as a sonar backup system with audible warnings.

The Quest's distinctive design and styling isn't limited to the exterior. The interior was built on an "urban loft" theme, and the seats and trims carry some of the cues of modern furniture designs. Even the instrument panel itself is unlike that of any other minivan, with a center stack that hosts audio and climate controls as well as the shift knob. Models with the optional navigation system have a high-contrast color screen that pops up from the top of the dashboard.

All that stylishness doesn't detract from function; the Quest is every bit a family minivan inside, with second-row seats that fold forward and a third-row that stows flat into the floor without needing removal, to create a larger, flat cargo area. The third row can be folded with one hand and doesn't require the headrests to be removed separately. The interior boasts a total of ten cupholders, twelve grocery-bag hooks and four power outlets.

One especially noteworthy feature offered on the Quest remains the SkyView glass-paneled roof, which is a step ahead of conventional sunroof designs and allows direct light into the second and third rows. The SkyView setup comes with a rear overhead console that brings aircraft-like amenities such as reading lamps and extra air vents, along with an available DVD entertainment system.

The Quest is offered in four different trims: a Base model, a mid-level S, more luxurious SL, and sporty SE. The Base model isn't so stark at all; it includes power accessories, keyless entry, an 8-speaker CD sound system, and even rear-seat controls for the air conditioning. The S adds steering-wheel controls, power sliding doors, and power vent windows, plus roof-rack rails, while the SL brings upgraded seats, power-adjustable pedals, the rear sonar system, a garage-door opener, dual-zone climate control, a CD changer and other comforts. At the top of the range, the SE upgrades to top features including the SkyView roof, heated leather seats, heated mirrors, fog lamps, a Bluetooth hands-free interface and XM satellite radio. Options on the SE are limited to a DVD entertainment system and the DVD-based navigation system.


Model News

For 2009, Nissan's minivan gets only a couple of minor changes. Automatic door locks are a newly standard feature, and a new Tuscan Sun paint color joins the palette.


Value Writeup

The Quest offers distinctive styling and an overall design that's unlike other minivans, which makes it a great alternative from the other mainstream models for those who don't want to drive what looks like just another mom-mobile. With the SkyView roof and rear overhead console, the Quest is an especially well-integrated package for those who plan to carry rear-seat occupants in style. The Quest is also one of the roomiest minivans, and Nissan claims that its sliding side doors have one of the largest-in-class openings for easy entry, exit and cargo loading.

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).
