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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The 2013 Nissan Quest is great in terms of low complaints, but it also has an abysmal crash test rating for one very common type of impact.

The IIHS' "small overlap" crash test rates the vehicle's ability to protect front seat passengers when the car is impacted across 1/4th of the front bumper.

This mimics hitting a pole, or an off-center crash into another car — more common in the real world than a full frontal head-on crash.

See our crash test page for the detailed results — As you can see from the IIHS' crash test video, the Nissan Quest does not protect intrusion into the passenger space & major injury to the front seat passengers is likely.

  • 10 miles


At 9K miles these Bridgestone tires are wearing on the exterior side walls. Dealership says it is because of alignment! we have had the alignment done 3 times over the past 10K miles! tires are now showing white 'wire' and must be replaced! once again, dealership says alignment issue when I took it in! and again, alignment is perfect! tires have been rotated every 3-5K mikes at oil change.these tires should not be doing this with only 21K miles on them!

Quest 6-cyl

  • 5,000 miles
The front tires wear quickly on the outside edges. Bought van new and within 5,000 miles the front tires were bald on outside edge of both tires. Alignment was checked and determined to be in spec. Rotated tires to back and now rotated tires exhibiting same wear pattern. Tires will not pass inspection due to wear on outside edge and loose traction in wet weather.
