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


The Quest does come relatively well-equipped for the segment, though it certainly wouldn't be considered the innovator for features in minivans today–that title goes to the Chrysler products, followed by the Toyota Sienna. There are many options to choose for the Quest, but like the other Japanese minivans in the segment, those features can come at a price.

Every Quest comes with power windows, locks, and mirrors; an AM/FM/CD changer (a dying breed); climate control; and pushbutton start. The base model doesn't offer some nearly ubiquitous features at all--there's no option at all for satellite radio, a rearview camera, or Bluetooth.

In the high $30,000 range, the Quest SL verges on luxury territory, with standard 18-inch wheels; power tailgate; leather seating and power passenger front seat; heated mirrors; heated front seats; and automatic headlights. At more than $42,000, the Quest LE gains 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; a 360-degree AroundView camera; and xenon headlights.

The Quest SV is the most popular model and our recommendation, since it bundles the most convenient features at the lowest price. From the low $30,000s, this model has standard Bluetooth; a USB port; power sliding side doors; a rearview camera; automatic climate control; and a 4.3-inch LCD audio display. The audio system deserves some study before you buy: it's split into two locations, with some controls clustered under the LCD screen, and the rest tucked away near the gear selector. It can be confusing to scroll through audio functions up top, and to select radio presets and volume levels below.

The Quest offers few options. The DVD player is available on the SV and SL, while a Bose speaker package is offered on the SL. Satellite radio is now offered on mid-line Quests. Dual sunroofs are available on the SL and LE models. The Quest has mostly skipped other cutting-edge luxury features, like Chrysler's uConnect wireless hotspot or Toyota's wide-screen DVD entertainment system.


Conclusion

You'll have to spend more than $30,000 on a Quest to get the features we'd require.

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.
