Quest 6-cyl

  • 82,000 miles


I was traveling on a state road at approx. 50 mph. I was beginning to start a curvy hill and pressed the gas pedal with no response. There was no engine revving heard and the tachometer had dropped to zero and all dash lights were on as if I had just turned the key to the 'on' position to start it. There was no low fuel light and the fuel gauge indicated 1/4 tank. I tried turning the engine over, but it wouldn't crank as if it was out of gas. Thankfully there was no one behind me coming around the blind curve or else someone would have been severely injured or worse. I pressed the trip button several times on the data display and it was flashing asterisk as if it was out of gas. I walked 2 miles to a gas station and put a gallon of gas in the tank and the car van cranked right up which indicated the van was out of gas, but the fuel gauge and low fuel light was faulty. This has occurred 3 other times with my wife driving alone. Once was on a U.S. hwy. It appears there's a bad fuse or bad sensor, but we're not sure and I've not seen any recalls on this. Now we just have to keep an eye on the data display once the fuel hits a half tank. It's just not something you think to do while driving. I at least wish the trip display would pop up as a low fuel backup, but when your children are watching a dvd or the radio is on and you're concentrating on driving you don't think to press the trip button to check the dte. I wish someone would come up with a solution or show a recall. We are desperate and afraid someone will either be injured or it will do damage to the van. We can't afford to take to the dealer to pay a high price B/C my wife is in school. Please help!

Problems with the fuel pump/system have occurred several times. On or about 1/6/2013, while driving 20 mph and coming to a light, the car turned off. The gauge showed 1/4 tank. The mechanic replaced the fuel pump and added 1 gallon of gas. Next day, the same thing happened as approaching a red light. Fuel level still at 1/4 tank. Mechanic added gas and the car started. Gas gauge is inaccurate and dangerous. In February 2013, on several occasions, after driving/parking the van, it would start and then turn off, start and then turn off. I was able to get it to run by giving it gas as soon as it started. On 3/13/2013, after driving the van and parking it, it would not start. It kept cranking, but nothing. Mechanic found electrical problem in the wiring and was able to fix it. On 3/28/2013, the car started and the fuel gauge dropped to empty with service engine light on. Van had a full tank of gas. Mechanic replaced the fuel pump and said there is an electrical problem with the fuel pump grounding. On a Nissan forum I discovered the following recall: "the recall affects 2005 - 2008 Nissan titan, armada and infiniti qx56S as well as Nissan frontier pickups and pathfinder and xterra SUVS produced between January and March 2006 and between October 2007 and January 2008. Due to a problem with a sensor inside the fuel tank, the gauges can show gas tanks a quarter full when they are in fact empty." I think the Nissan Quest should also be recalled because this is a very serious and dangerous problem which is endemic to these cars.

  • 60,000 miles
At 60000 miles had to replace the passenger wheel bearing and ABS sensor in the vehicle. At 90000 miles a knocking sound began to come from the engine while the vehicle was stopped or in park. Mechanic advised this was due to the timing chain, which is a problem due to the plastic parts that Nissan uses to hold the tension on the chain. This is a known problem with this model vehicle as numerous complainants have been filed. Concerned that Nissan knew it had a bad component and has not fixed the problem that exist. Also, now the driver side wheel bearing is bad and needs to be replaced. Started to have problems with the brakes around 30000. Fixed the brakes with oe parts, and then began to have problems with the rotors. Technician advised these problems came from the rotors getting hot. Had the rotors turned which did not work. Now I am going to have to replace the rotors on the front of the vehicle. Window motor also has went bad in the vehicle.

There is a rattling noise somewhere in the front of the vehicle (apparently in the wheels). Also, I noticed some vibration in the steering wheel. There seem to be some electric failure as sometimes the A/C don't work (when that happens you have to turn off the vehicle and then turn it on again for it to work).
