2001 Nissan Quest Owner Comments

Quest 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 82,000 miles


While driving my 2001 Nissan Quest van, travelling at between 30 and 35 mph, a driver of a full-sized pickup truck coming from a side street, didn't see his stop sign. He was also travelling at approximately 30-35 mph. I noticed him only in time for my foot to reach the brake pedal before impacting the passenger side of his truck at the rear of the passenger door. The impact spun his vehicle 180 degrees and mine about 25, from the direction of original travel. It took approximately 1 second for my vehicle to decelerate from 35 to 0. the impact to my vehicle was from the front driver's side across the front of the vehicle. The damage was enough to push the radiator back at about a 35 degree angle from verticle. I sustained minor injuries and the other passengers sustained no treatable injuries. In my opinion the airbags should have deployed, but didn't. this is the reason for my complaint.

The vehicle was involved in a collision, consumer attempted to apply the brake when the ABS locked up which caused the vehicle to skid out of control, also the airbags failed to deploy. There was 1 injury.

My son was driving the vehicle and ran into the back of a boat trailer. Speed at impact was approximately 30mph. The vehicle he hit did not stop, we suspect he didn't even realize he had been hit and probably thought he just hit a bump in the road or something. The vehicle suffered front end damage typical of a 30mph crash. What is very upsetting is that the vehicle caught on fire and burnt up. Despite the fact the several truck drivers stopped to assist and emptied 4 extinguishers on the fire, it wasn't enough to put it out. On top of all of that neither airbag, driver side or passenger side did not deploy despite a direct front on impact. Needless to say I am very upset with the manufacturer. A 30mph collision should not result in a totaled vehicle.
