Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

I was driving with my kids and gas gauge was showing full but the car stopped in the middle of the road. I had to call road side assistance and the guy told me the was not gas in the car. Since than it happens with me twice.after researching on internet I learned that this is very common problem in Nissan Quest modles.I called Nissan but they refused to help me.

The hatch lift will not close or open with the key or push button; it is an open position. We contact a Nissan dealer and was quote $900 to repair. In 2012 we had to replace the transmission that cost us $2500. The dashboard all the lights have gone out and the cost to replaced that whole is over $600 just for the parts not including labor. When we bought the van we were very happy with it. But in the last 3years it has gone down hill. I car that we bought brand new for over $30,000 should last more than 7 years. I don't know if you can force Nissan to look at all the problems that are in this model. We are planning a new car next year; and I know we will not be purchasing a Nissan.

Fuel gauge not registering properly. Last few digits of odometer will disappear or not show up all the way.

  • 83,700 miles
At around 83700 miles, the last three digits of the mileage became garbled, and now they don't show up at all. Also, other indicators on the display are going out as well, such as the gas gauge. The possible safety considerations are obvious: Being unable to determine when maintenance is due, running out of fuel on the highway, etc.

At approximately 98000 miles the odometer/gas meter was unreadable. Apparently it is common in Nissan Quests to have this part go out at or around 100,000 miles. Possibly leaving the occupants stranded because of the lack of awareness in the amount of gas available. Being that we were traveling across country to relocate this became very dangerous.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 53,648 miles
On July 11,2011 I was traveling in my 2006 Nissan Quest minivan with my two children from my home in harwich, MA to my parent's home in ashford, ct. At about 1pm on a dry road, while traveling at about 65mph on MA route 25, my Quest just completely shut down, no gas pedal response, no power steering, no power brakes etc. And the red check engine light went on. Fortunately, the traffic was light and I was able to guide the Quest to the side of the road, after a few minutes, I was able to re-start the Quest and it then again ran normally. I scheduled an appointment for the July 12 with gates GMC Nissan in windham, ct. The diagnosis of the problem (in their invoice C94977) was as follows: "C/S check eng light was on, check and report vehicle shut off while driving. Did re-start and ran fine cause PO643 sensor power supply found app sensorfault, no repair at this time, needs gas pedal assembly." Gates did not have the electronic gas pedal which apparently caused this problem in stock and said it would take days to get one. I have been driving the Quest since then without incident. Clearly any major vehicle shut down at highway speeds as just occurred is a safety problem. I was fortunate that I could pull the vehicle over. If not, I could have been struck from behind. Etc. Obviously, something is wrong as shown by the incident above. I would appreciate whatever can be done to warn Nissan and also to fix my vehicle. I have approx. 56,000 miles on the vehicle.

Quest 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,197 miles
: the contact stated while driving 15 mph through an intersection, the engine stalled without warning, and would not restart. The vehicle was towed to a dealer who determined the cylinder head needed to be replaced. After the replacement, upon attempting to start the engine, it would not start. The contact charged the battery, and drove the vehicle to the dealer who determined there was a loose battery cable. Afterwards, there was a rubbing noise coming from underneath the vehicle followed by an electrical odor. The vehicle was taken to the dealer to await further inspection. The manufacturer was alerted. The second time the incident happened, the consumer was told a bag had attached itself to the motor, but offered no reason as to why the vehicle was shutting off. Every time the vehicle shuts off, there is an electrical smell. Updated 12/1/06.
