2006 Nissan Quest Owner Comments

problem #3

Quest 6-cyl

  • 39,500 miles


Nissan Quest 2006 sl 40,000 miles my shift lever stuck in park even though I am pressing the brakes and they told me at the dealer to use a screwdriver to override the shift which I think is a hazard or to replace the total shift. But I told them its a manufacture defect and they have to pay for it. Also like to mention that they have a very bad customer service. This is my 2nd car with Nissan I use to have the 1999 Quest. But I will never buy Nissan cars any more.

The transmission failed and now is being replaced at a minimum charge of $3500. The transmission mechanic said that Nissan used shoddy materials in its transmissions for the 2006 year. I live in mountainous terrain and said defective transmission could have been very dangerous. In addition, I note that many websites refer to Nissan vehicles having defective transmissions.

  • Automatic transmission

I purchased a 2006 Nissan Quest on March 14, 2006 from Nissan 112 in medford, N.Y. and I have had nothing but a multitude of problems with this vehicle due to many defects. I have had to have the car serviced 5 times in the first month and a half of ownership and there are still many problems that have not and cannot be resolved. I was told by nys senator lavalle's office to contact you. VIN [xxx]-the car smells like rotten eggs, transmission slips, buck and jerks causing delay of acceleration. Does not always start on first key turn, rugs in hatch area stained from multiple leaks. "new" replaced computer mileage does not match odometer mileage therefore service screen is useless. Dashboard chipped and not set correctly, can see inside. Radio does not always display title/artist and letters become skewed/broken or stuck. Ticking sound that comes from front pass. Side dash. There is black glue all over exterior from re-sealing the rear window. Updated 07/16/2012 information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)
