The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Nissan Quest does everything a minivan should -- carries seven, has a flexible cargo area and gets good fuel economy -- and looks appealing, too. The 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan is loaded with practical features that families on the go will use and appreciate, but it’s not the most luxurious minivan out there.
