Expert Quotes:

Passengers should also find the second and third rows a comfortable place to pass the miles, especially since there are 16 cup holders.
Popular Mechanics

Nissan chooses to use one large 11-inch screen for one video at a time. The result is a much better picture when only one DVD is playing (plus the kids who ride in a Quest will learn the important skill of compromise at an early age).

Sadly missing from the options list are the second-row captain seats from the Quest’s Japanese-market twin, the Elgrand, which feature articulating seatbacks and chaise-style calf rests—so much for snatching sales from Maybach.
Car and Driver

you cannot remove the seats in the 2011 Nissan Quest — without the service manual and probably some bloody knuckles.
Inside Line


With a decent array of features and options, the Quest should satisfy most owners--at least those who pay for the pricier trim levels.

For $28,550, the base 2011 Nissan Quest S has pushbutton start, power windows/locks/mirrors, and a six-CD changer. Bluetooth is unavailable, and neither are satellite radio, nor a rearview camera.

The $31,700 Quest SV is essentially the starting point for most family-van buyers. It has power sliding side doors; automatic climate control; a USB port and Bluetooth; a rearview camera; and a 4.3-inch LCD audio display. The audio system groups some controls under the LCD screen, and some down on the console, below the gear selector. It's confusing at best, as you must scroll through audio functions up top, and choose radio presets and volume functions down low.

Opt for the $35,150 Quest SL and leather upholstery becomes standard, along with 18-inch wheels; a power passenger front seat and power tailgate; heated front seats and heated mirrors; and automatic headlights. For several thousand more dollars, the $42,150 Quest LE specifies a standard navigation system; satellite radio; power assist for the third-row seat; a DVD entertainment system with a sharp 11-inch screen; blind-spot detectors; and xenon headlights.

The Quest offers few options. The DVD player is available on the SL version, and so is a Bose speaker package. Dual sunroofs are available on the SL and LE models. Nissan says it has no plans to add more USB ports for 3G-to-WiFi connectivity, and won't offer iPad mounting kits for back-seat passengers.

Conclusion

It’s no daring innovator, and the 2011 Nissan Quest bundles most of modern must-have features in models costing more than $30,000.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
