We are getting ready to trade it in for 1500. Year of manufacture 1997 First year of ownership 1997 Engine and transmission 3. . Checked fuses - no answers as to what is draining the battery- and our car is now sitting dead out in the street. I wont buy a Nissan now that they are just crap. Original review: June 8, 2016 I have a 2012 Nissan Quest that is 90,000 miles. Faults: First of all the dealer is not good.
Rest assured, no more Nissans in our future. I will be purchasing a used power steering pump from a wrecked vehicle that comes with a 12 month warranty and trading the van in for a Toyota or other make. Original review: June 17, 2015 We purchased our 2012 Nissan Quest new in March 2012. I also have numerous other problems. Lights won't work inside the car as well as the radio.
That is 8% of the purchase price we paid for the van new. I insisted they remove the alternator and hand it over to my daughter, who drove it to a local place that rebuilds alternators and such. I will be contacting Nissan today to see if the radio can be fixed and for what costs. Transmission broke at 72168 miles!!!!! I do all maintenance since I first got the van. Leaking from the sunroof or sky view.
I get rained on during heavy down pours. My wife does not drive far, just carting kids to sports, etc. For about three years after owning this vehicle, I experienced daily buyer's regret. The power rack-and-pinion steering has been universally praised for its precision and taut, responsive feedback. Jump started it again, the van starts good, same thing happened again when I cut the engine and restart it again, or when it was still running, and I will turn the ac on, van will just quit. I had the same prob. Now the valve covers are leaking and need to be pulled and replaced.
The back window also rattles for no reason. This is impressive given the fact that Quest weighs in at nearly 4000 pounds, more than some larger minivans. Anyone got the same problem? The front seats are positioned high and comfortably padded, but could use a bit more side support. Original review: July 27, 2015 My 2004 Nissan Quest almost got me killed. They told us it was the motor mounts. They wouldn't honor their return with 5 days policy.
I also have replaced at least 30 tires on this van in 4 years, even though I have had at least 10 alignments from the dealer and other alignment shops. Wow Nissan, way to go with customer service. Original review: July 14, 2015 I bought the 04 Quest new. We purchased the Quest used with 65k miles on it, it needed tires but other than that was in great condition. Now I'm in a moral dilemma of what to do with this piece of junk from here. So I chalked it up to tire manufacturer problems, after going down that road they advised me that they tire manufacturer had experienced the same problem on other vehicles of the same make and model??? Can someone tell me - how can I return this car? It had 29,000 miles on it. Even now the brakes are spongy.
I have owned 4 different Nissan vehicles and have never had the negative experience I had with them over the last week. Man I wish I would've acted quicker. We are currently on our 3rd set of tires with only 45,000 miles on the van. Now just today I have problems with the transmission which is weird, it only has 83,000 miles which the Nissan dealer doesn't want to cover. Since then I had many problems during the years. General Comments: I like the way it drives and handles the road. When all seats are in place, there is an available 14.
I had it back for 10 days and now it's the dealer again. There are no engine or transmission issues. The truck I bought new the same month and year still looks wonderful. I owned a Maxima several years ago and loved it! I live in Land O Lakes. The steering is the other major issue, I changed a rack and pinion already. I was initially advised that there was nothing they could do for me and there needed to be further evaluation of the problem. Dealer advised to change the whole transmission.
