Nissan comes up short in its quest for a great minivanby Thom Blackett
Nissan Quest: Review – The setup was perfect. Three members of our CarTV crew needed a rig to transport themselves and their gear from Orange County to Las Vegas for the SEMA show. Turns out Nissan had a 2007 Quest 3.5 SE available, complete with leather seats, a navigation system, a fold-flat third-row seat, and a dual-screen DVD system. Plus, the EPA-rated 25 mpg on the highway would leave more in the budget for Vegas-style entertainment.
Unfortunately, the mileage never hit much above 18 mpg, so what didn't go toward gas bought burgers in the hotel diner with an "Elvis" show. And after a 500-mile journey, the "uncomfortable" Quest failed to win any fans. Overall, our editors agreed.
