I ran out of gas on two separate occasions. Both times I thought I had plenty of gas due to what the gauge said. The first time, I had my 2 kids with me and it ran out as I was going around an unfamiliar curve in the interstate. The van became very hard to steer. Lucky for me I was in a lane next to a shoulder so I was able to fight it off of the road. It was very hard to stop at that point. The second time, I had 7 people in the car including my 2 kids and 4 of their young friends. This time it ran out just as I came to a curve on a road where people tend to speed. I did not have the strength to keep the van from crossing into the oncoming lane, but lucky for us, nobody was in the other lane at that time. I was able to coast off of the opposite side of the road. Both times I missed very important meetings but was thankful to be alive. I have since learned to reset my mileage counter when I fill up and watch to make sure I don't push it to far, but always afraid I may guess incorrectly. I am probably filling up at 1/2 tank for fear of stalling again with my kids in the van. After the first time, I thought I received a notice about a problem with the gauge. I had my van in for service at the local Nissan dealer and asked them about it. They looked it up and said they did not see anything about it. That was around 2015/03. I am tired of constantly filling up, so I am looking into how to get it fixed. That is how I found out about all the other complaints about the faulty gauge issue.

The pressure power steering hose develops a terrible leak. Eventually required a 1/2 bottle of ps fluid nearly every day! the problem is that the hose is "buried" behind the engine and extremely difficult to replace. A replacement hose is less than $100 but it takes multiple hours of pain and frustration to replace. This type of poor workmanship is totally unacceptable. The fact that it's so difficult to fix a known problem is unconscionable. Nissan should be ashamed of themselves for taking advantage of consumers. The leaked caused steering issues on numerouse occasions. It never failed completely due to the fact that I carried a gallon jug of ps fluid with me everywhere I went. Now, not only did it take me forever to repair this item, my driveway is an eyesore. Power steering fluid is a very caustic product and does not clean up therefore it has destroyed my driveway. IżM sorely disappointed.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Quest. The contact stated that while driving approximately 35 mph, the vehicle stalled and all the warning lights illuminated. The contact mentioned that the ability to steer seized. The contact mentioned that the vehicle was able to come to a complete stop. However, the vehicle failed to start. The vehicle had to be towed home. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer or independent mechanic. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 135,000.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 80,000 miles


The first incident, occurring in the summer of 2014, caused my 2007 Nissan Quest to stall/shut off and nothing worked - it lost all steering, power, acceleration, braking, etc. It just died, going approximately 15mph while veering right to turn into a shopping center. This same incident occurred about a month later, while traveling approximately 25mph (posted speed limit) going uphill at night. Van just died and I was stranded on the road - lucky enough to get far enough near a private driveway not to get hit by a car, an to call for help. The fuel gauge was showing sufficient gas left in the tank, but it had run out of gas. We had put the vehicle in the shop for repair and luckily the mechanic was honest and smart and concluded that it needed fuel and the gauge was defective. Luckily on both occasions, none of our three children (one special needs) were in the van. This defect left us without a second (family transportation) vehicle for several days and to incur unnecessary auto shop costs. Secondly, we recently had suspension work done, totaling over $1300. There was apparently a recall for this, of which I was never made aware. The bolt defect was also never brought to my attention, but the rattling noise has existed since purchased used in 2011. These defects have caused potential endangerment to my family, incurred us costly shop/repair costs, and left us without a vehicle for days - highly dangerous and inconvenient, when all were known defects that should have been known to us and for which we should not have paid.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 130,190 miles
Driving approximately 45 mph, and engine stalled and cut out. Lost power steering and power brakes. Needed to make evasive moves to avoid accident and get off road. Car ran out of gas. Dashboard fuel gauge said 1/4 tank of gas. Onboard trip display said zero (0) distance till empty, but I do not use this. I had to get assistance and 1 put less than 1 gallon gas in car. Fuel gauge did not move and still says there is 1/4 tank gas, while trip computer registered above 0 dte. This is extremely dangerous to lose control of vehicle unexpectedly. I have been driving for over 27 years and have never run out of gas and have always relied on the gauge, not the trip computer. Please investigate and let me know what I should do. This is a very dangerous situation. I had 2 kids in the car, and I am grateful my wife was not driving, as she would have been unable to steer or apply brakes in such a situation when loss of power occurs under this situation. The trip computer can be wrong, but the fuel gauge on the dash board should always be correct. Basic principle.

I bought my Nissan Quest 2007 SE in may of 2012.. from a dealer... after 2 months of owning my vehicle I started to notice that the front suspension would always rattle... or fell like something was hiting.. so I took it back to the dealer and said it was the suspension so he sent me to his mechanic.... after about 2 days with out my vehicle...they called me to say everything was good... it did the same thing a few week later..... at this time I noticed the the steering will was getting stiff so I had it checked the oil and yes it was a little low.. so I added power steering fluid... as I was headed to the highway at about 55 mph the steering wheel was so hard to turn to the right off highway lane... so I decided to turn back to town..... I headed to the gas station as I pulled up to a pump it sounded like a burst and all the oil started leaking... I did have this part changed as the dealer again said they did not fix this problem...I had a mechanic change the so call part..,, but my minivan has not changed at all the power steering is the same... having difficult steering, ,.,, its almost my 3rd year in may and I have not been able to know what the problem is... as I am still paying it off....I had a friend tell me to file a report and as I dont know what else to do..I did google and I have found other people say they have the some problem... please let me know what else I can do or is this a manufacture problem...

While driving, the car suddenly loses power and comes to a stop. After several attempts to restart the engine I decided to check the mte and gas gauge which both indicate there is plenty of gas to continue. I had the battery, alternator and starter checked and they were fine. So I decided to add more gas then shazam it started. Please inform if there's a recall or how to remedy the issue. Thanks.
