Pros: "Typical Japanese engineered vehicle with 0 failure"

Cons: "not a thing"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought this new in 2005, currently 30,000 mile. I don't drive a lot as shown in my odometer, and I don't trust mechanics, so I do all the mechanical work at home. After owning this car for more than 10 years, I can write a legitimate review. I haven't had a single failure for last ten years. Only issue is the factory equipped Goodyear LS tires that was recently replaced. Another issue is the way engine is mounted; pretty difficult to replace spark plugs; that probably explains why Nissan opted to use 100,000 mile spark plugs from the factory. Those who make friends with mechanics, prepare to spend good money on tuneup or if EGR sensor need to be replaced. I checked the brake caliper, they're well within safety limit, but front disc is seemingly warping as I can feel subtle vibration when vehicle is coming to stop. Instead of turning original disc for $30 from reputable machine shop, I chose to buy pair of (allegedly customer return item) front discs from Amazon for $23. Other than normal maintenance such as oil, fluids or tires, my total maintenance cost of owning this car for ten years is $23, that is, about $2/year. That's not bad!"

Pros: "Great sound system and road handling"

Cons: "Outside noise around the sliding doors"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"We bought our 2005 Quest from a one owner individual and it has been the best minivan I've ever owned and I have owned about 5 in my life time. I have had a brand new Dodge, used GM, and Nissan is my first foreign model. The engine runs so smooth in this van and I have get-up and go! like any small sports car out there. I love the way it handles the road and it's a pleasure to drive. I think the only downside I have found is that I can hear wind noise around the sliding doors. I want to buy another one just like this one in 2015."
