The 2000 Nissan Quest was tested in a competition organized by against the , , , and. I had already driven back to the dealership 2 times. Now I'm in a moral dilemma of what to do with this piece of junk from here. Lovely if it's been raining or at night for people to come by and get into your car. On to buy a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna. When we replace this car, which we currently have no plans to do, it will not be replaced with a Nissan.
An anti-roll bar is standard equipment up front, and the optional Handling Package adds a rear stabilizer bar, wider tires, performance-tuned shocks, a trailer wiring harness and a full-sized spare tire. As someone with 3 years of tire shop experience in the past, I know this to be completely unacceptable. Design patents were filed on December 27, 2002 and registered under D483,297 December 9, 2003. I made an appointment at the alignment shop because I assumed it must be out of alignment due to the tire wear. Most minivans look pretty much alike. We currently have Firestone Precision Touring tires on the car, and they are holding up very well. The middle-row seats are difficult to remove, but the third seat slides all the way to the back of the front seats once they are out of the way.
. For instance, the slick Nissan Quest is exceptionally carlike--one reason it has been the top-selling minivan with an import nameplate since 1993. Even the seats are supportive and firm--as in a German sedan. Checked fuses - no answers as to what is draining the battery- and our car is now sitting dead out in the street. The 2002 Nissan Quest was not sold in. The clear coat has come off the hood, the top and starting on the sides.
Find it quite easy to park and maneuver for a vehicle of this size. On my 4th set of tires that have finally lasted 3 years of normal driving, went with a set from Pirelli that have a higher weight rating. This generation of the Quest and Villager was built at Ford's plant in. In 2000, decisions were made by Ford and Nissan to abandon the joint venture, as both the Windstar and Quest replacements were in initial development and the design process. They came back telling me that is something with the transmission. I love certain aspects of this van, but I must admit this vehicle has made me more nervous as an owner than any other vehicle I have ever owned.
That is 8% of the purchase price we paid for the van new. But they come in a variety of sizes and shapes and have individual features that set them apart. Most were addressed near the end of that model by an engineering team sent from Japan to help with the new plant in Canton. The only modification required is to the switch the low-beam center pin and ground pins on the light bulb socket. It's taken 3 hits and all of my children's abuse. I have since located the leak in the tube that's running down along the bottom of the motor but I haven't repaired it yet, I just keep feeding it auto tranny fluid. Transmission rebuilt at 240k but still having issues.
Keep up the poor manufacturing and customer service! Cam sensors, motor mounts, interior electrical is entirely out. Now the valve covers are leaking and need to be pulled and replaced. Both vehicles were initially powered by the 3. Original review: April 10, 2019 2008 Nissan Quest base model - I likely will be leaving another review at some point in the future, because we have bought a second Quest, a loaded 2012 model, which I have a sneaking suspicion will not be as reliable as the 2008 has been. Since then I had many problems during the years.
I have a mechanical history and do all of my own preventative maintenance, I change oil, check fluids, and rotate tires every 5k. The 99-02 Quests used optical distributors whose cam sensors were especially prone to failure. I think Nissan should be responsible for the crappy paint they put on my expensive vehicle. My wife does not drive far, just carting kids to sports, etc. It seems that getting all the original equipment trash off the car brakes, shocks, tires, etc and replaced with quality products solves a lot of problems. The Quest performed poorly and placed fifth out of the five minivans tested; the editors cited a lengthy braking distance of 220 feet from 70 mph and inflexible seating configurations the third-row seat was not removable as downsides, while the Quest's performance and nimble handling were cited as advantages over its competitors. I removed the instrument cluster quite easy to do and sent it to a place called Clusterfix in Washington state, or maybe it was Oregon? By the end of this generation, both and marketed solely long-wheelbase minivans.
When I could finally stop, I discovered the chrome trim strip above the grill had broken off and that is what flew off. Current issues: Rear mount is now broke again, strut mounts are bad again, both sliding doors are hard to open, driver door handle is completely broke, power steering return line is now leaking, rear suspension needs to be aligned, rear vent system don't get hot, cluster broke no gas no engine temp rear windshield blade missing, time for timing chain and tensioners to be replaced noisy on start up. Still have to have the vehicle regularly aligned as it has a problem holding the alignment and just went ahead and purchased a lifetime alignment from a car care company. Nissan dealer said it was cuz non Nissan brakes were used so we bought the expensive Nissan brand from them and change the brakes but it didn't work. We haven't had any issues with it in the last year. Had to have it towed to dealership more than 40 miles away. I am on my third transmission which cost 4100 dollars each at the dealer.
And from my understanding this is a common problem with their 04, 05 and 06 but Nissan couldn't care less. The dealer advised I talk with Nissan Consumer Affairs. The design by Alfonso Albaisa was chosen in late 2000, with a concept vehicle being presented in January 2002 at as a thinly veiled preview. Even though the tires are holding up better than the previous 3 sets, that can change quickly with the alignment issue so I have to stay diligent about that. It's a bare bones model and I believe it was being used as a transit vehicle before us. Now I'm just a bit cranky because I'm researching replacing the trim and the only option I can locate so far is having to replace the whole grill system, even though it's just the trim and is installed separate from the grill, an obvious fact as it took flight and the grill stayed in place.
