"Bought new in 2005. 57,000 miles & still on
original brakes & pads although 80% of the miles are interstate. It was one of the last 04's produced & has not had any of the early production problems. Gas milage has
improved with time from 22 to now around 25 on the interstate. Only major unexplained problem was unexpected speeding up of engine while idling during the 1st 5,000 miles of ownership. It happened 4-5 times with no warning. The worst time engine rpm exceeded 5000rpm & then gradually over 10 seconds went back
to normal. Luckily I had promptly shifted into neutral when it started to speed up. It would have been impossible to hold vehicle with brake. Dealership had van several days, but could not come up with a solution to what was causing problem & of course impossible to replicate. No service bulletins on this problem. Problem cleared up on its on."
"This was our first minivan and believe me I didn't want to make the jump to the Mom that drives the van. My husband and I were both pleasantly surprised at the functionality this van has to offer. This December we will have had our 2004 Quest for 4 years and have enjoied every mile we've put on it."
