Quest 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


I have had the van in the shop at least 4 times(~15 days) with ongoing problems which include: The windows failing to roll up when button is pushed, the gas gauge failing to register gas after filling it up, the gas meter after a half a tank never registers correctly (when light indicates no gas and tank is filled the van will only take 16 gallons and owners manual indicates a 20 gallon tank), the transmission slips, the sliding doors squeak and rattle, rear interior clamps on floor of car are rusting, idiot lights come on intermittently, the gaskets on the doors are coming off, the heated seats haven't worked in high and low, the entertainment system doesn't respond to rear av, and the air conditioner is not cool enough and it stinks. The automatic slide doors will not stop for small objects but this product was designed for families. These doors will remove a child's finger and the switch to initiate the auto slide is low, where one child can push it while another is getting in, or has their hand in the way and didn't realize their brother pushed the button. I did my own little research test, I got pencils and everywhere I placed a pencil the door closed with the pencil being snapped into many pieces and crunched up in the door. Then I tried the same thing on my friend's Honda, but the Honda's auto slide doors bounced off every time. Nissan only designed their doors to respond to large extremities. I have an attorney and I am going through a process for lemon law. I didn't realize the issues with the van in a few days so I don't think Nissan service will resolve all these issues in 2 days with a special Nissan engineer sent out from the company as part of my lemon law process. And in regards to the sliding door concerns all anyone will say is that the doors are performing the way they were designed to. So Nissan designed a product for families that will remove a small hand or finger.

Quest 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Quest. The vehicle moved while in gear. When at a small incline and taking foot off the brake the car will roll backwards. When at a small decline shifting vehicle in reverse and taking foot off the brake the car will roll forwards this occurred approximately 1 to 2 months after the contact purchased the vehicle. Took the vehicle to dealership, who said this was normal, they should not worry about it, and to cover the brake as if the vehicle had manual transmission. However, this is vehicle has automatic transmission.
