2009 Nissan Quest Comfort & Quality

8.0
On Comfort & Quality

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 Cars.com 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." The only complaint about the seat is that it folds flat against the floor instead of into it, like some competitors of the Nissan 2009 Quest.

Although the 2009 Nissan Quest is bested in some areas by Honda, its spacious and refined interior is very competitive.

The 2009 Nissan Quest offers plenty of passenger space for up to seven people, including the driver, with three rows of seats, including the two bucket seats up front. While there is plenty of room in stylish seats for passengers, Cars.com warns "the bucket seats don't feel as nice as they look." MyRide.com agrees, calling the Nissan Quest "uncomfortable." ConsumerGuide points out that "tall folks may need more seat travel," although they note that all models have adjustable pedals and seats for the driver. Headroom and legroom are both plentiful, and ConsumerGuide likes that there is "adult-sized room in the 2nd and 3rd rows." 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 Cars.com 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. MyRide.com 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."

When it comes to road noise, reviewers are at odds. ConsumerGuide says that the "Quest is in line with quieter minivans," while MyRide.com calls it "noisy."
