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.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 110,000 miles


The vehicle's fuel tank indicator has suddenly become faulty. The needle for fuel capacity showed about 1/4 gas tank full, yet my van stopped in the middle of the street. There was no gas in the vehicle, yet the indicator showed 1/4th available. It was a big inconvenience, I had get emergency help for fuel, etc. I was lucky it happened when I was in the right lane of a slow moving road that had a shoulder on the right. I was also fortunate to carry my cell phone with me at the time of that journey ! I took it to the repair shop, they replaced the fuel tank, etc. The problem occured again even after the fix. The technicians pointed out to a report on NHTSA site that points to a open ticket for this model and issue.

Quest 6-cyl

  • miles
While traveling on a highway the van lost power and stopped. The gas gauge showed the tank was half full, however there was no gas in the tank. The incident happened on a busy highway, and there were children in the car. Based on what I've read online - this is not an isolated occurrence. Nissan has recalled cars with similar problems but not the Quest model. This is a very dangerous issue and could have resulted in deaths of three people. The problem with the gas gauge has been confirmed by a Nissan dealer as well as an independent car mechanic. Please recall the gas gauge in Nissan Quest before someone dies!...updated 04-10-14

Quest 6-cyl

  • 97,209 miles
This has happened to me on two occasions now. Driving along in peak traffic and suddenly vehicle shuts off. No power steering and almost involved in accidents both occasions the first time I was alone the second time I had my grand babies with me and that was terrifying for them as the other road users where whizzing past and they were stopped. Both times I looked at the digital reading on the display and it displayed the miles as 80 miles to empty and 60 miles to empty and the manual gauge still showed just under 1/4 tank left. The low fuel light never came on either time. This needs to be sorted out before some one gets killed especially as this is used to Transport children....updated 04-10-14

Quest 6-cyl

  • 135,000 miles


Was exiting a highway and slowing to a stop. Traffic began to move so I pressed the gas pedal. The car hesitated then stalled. I was in center lane and had to cross another lane of traffic to get to the shoulder with no power steering and trying not to hit brakes so I didn't unintentionally block traffic. My gas gauge showed just over a quarter tank and the mileage showed 77 miles to empty. I was able to get 2 gallons of gas and it started right up. Went to fill it up at the nearest gas station and it took 19 gallons to fill. This is a 20.1 gallon tank. This was the third such occurrence with the exact same scenario. I had it addressed previously at the dealership, but was told that there was no fault found. After this latest incident, I was told the fuel sending unit/fuel pump had to be replaced at a cost of appx $750 dollars! not happy!!!...updated 04-10-14 there were no dash lights to indicate a problem. No check engine light. No low level fuel light. The first two times, I took it to Nissan to be looked at, there were no fault codes. It was not until the third time, that they finally were able to see a fault code. Shortly thereafter, I did get a check engine light after filling my gas tank. I took it back to Nissan for troubleshooting and they got the same fault code for the fuel sending unit. Just about every time, I fill the tank, the check engine light comes on for the same reason.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 55,421 miles
I was driving at 45 mph and pressed the gas. It was early Sunday morning, very light traffic. I pressed the gas pedal to accelerate and did not hear the engine respond. I looked at my gauges and the tachometer was at 0. I realized the engine was not running. I tried revving the gas pedal but nothing happened. I managed to guide my car off the road into an entrance road to a business. I put the car in park and attempted to start it. The engine turned over but would not catch. The gas gauge showed a quarter of a tank and no light was on. I called my wife and she brought a gas can. I poured it the gas. The car immediately started. I went to a gas station. The car took 19 gallons. The capacity was 20 gallons so the car was empty. I have been monitoring since. On a typical week my car is slightly under half a tank. This week my car was a little bit under three quarter 3/4 full. The trip odometer showed I had gone 174 miles. I filled up the car and it took 11.3 gallons. This indicate the tank is almost exactly 1/4 off. I was very lucky when the car stalled I could pull off safely. I have seen many post on the internet regarding this issue on this year car. What has to happen to get this addresses" this is the same problem as the frontier and pathfinder and xterra are having for the same year. They all have the same 3.5 liter engine. Any one checking to see if the Quest has the same fuel pump/sender assembly" the similarities are just to obvious.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Quest. The contact stated that the fuel gauge indicator displayed inaccurate information and as a result the vehicle stalled and began to hesitate because the fuel tank was empty. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for a diagnostic test. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 103,000 and current mileage was 123,000...update 04-10-14

The stated mpg for my 2007 Nissan Quest on the window sticker shows 18 - 24 miles per gallon yet after 10 months the van only gets 17.6 miles per gallon and that is during mostly highway driving. When questioning this a dealership after waiting a few months to see if any improvement we where advised by the salesmen what did we expect for a V6 lsrge vehicle. I do not understand how they can be allowed to show higher mpg on a window sticker then what the vehicle actual gets.
