The 2009 Nissan Quest offers a lot of room for passengers and plenty of storage space for any family. It also has a lot of space for small-item storage, including many cubbies and a front console, not to mention the cargo room and its flexibility.

ConsumerGuide raves that the Nissan Quest 2009 model's "fold-flat seats are handy," allowing for plenty of cargo room. They also point out that the Quest provides "numerous storage cubbies" and the third row folds down for more storage space when necessary. As says, "There's 32.3 cubic feet of room behind the Quest's third row; folding it into the floor raises the total to 87.7 cubic feet."

Edmunds states the 2009 Nissan Quest "has more than a few things in its favor," and this applies to comfort and quality.

Besides the questionable comfort of the Quest’s interior seating, the quality and design of interior materials is definitely impressive. ConsumerGuide states "materials are an attractive and upscale mix of colors and textures," and notes a couple of rough-edged trim pieces in its test model, but says the interior's quality was otherwise "free of imperfections."

When you need a vehicle that seats more than six people, and particularly if you plan to store large items or groceries while still allowing passengers some room, the 2009 Nissan Quest delivers. praises the "improved dash layout," as well as prodigious storage space, and says Nissan has created a vehicle that is "fine for covering the daily commute or running errands."

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.
