1996 Nissan Quest Reviews

We bought our Quest GXE used in '02 on Ebay. Friends and family made fun of us. Turns out to have been one of the best vehicle decisions we've ever made. It has just developed a leak in the rear main seal, which is how I stumbled on this site; but overall, this van has toted our family trouble free to a lot of great memories over the years.
Purchased car new late 1995. 150k+ mile without an major repairs.
WE GET 24-27 MPG
