Power steering fluid pours out, had to replace the holder because it broke. The first thing they told me when they called was I had too much oil in the van. Somehow it took over a week to fix and they did not give me a rental until I talked to Consumer Affairs. Original review: April 10, 2019 2008 Nissan Quest base model - I likely will be leaving another review at some point in the future, because we have bought a second Quest, a loaded 2012 model, which I have a sneaking suspicion will not be as reliable as the 2008 has been. It had 29,000 miles on it.
Cam sensors, motor mounts, interior electrical is entirely out. The engine dying unexpectedly on this road is a safety hazard not only to everyone in my vehicle but to oncoming traffic as well. It would be disappointing and sad to see if this occurrence is what it takes for Nissan to investigate such complaints. After waiting yet another week for an answer from emma and Nissan, emma informed me that Nissan would not pay to replace my vehicle because I did not have my vehicle serviced at a Nissan dealership. The power seized while driving and on 2 occasions I was almost killed by a trailer.
The tire had a nail in it. I will never lease or purchase another Nissan product and will spread the word to other consumers not to purchase any Nissan vehicle. Also, when she tried to accelerate to higher speeds there was hesitation. When we replace this car, which we currently have no plans to do, it will not be replaced with a Nissan. The next day I came back to help my mother-in-law get a car from there. Called Consumer Affairs to complain. Consumer was instructed to place the vehicle into park, switch off the vehicle, and restart it when this problem occurred.
Owner advises that one time the tire light would come on about every block. This was discovered by Nissan after complaining three times, and a manufacturer's representative who duplicated the problem and found a broken plastic piece within the steering. Vehicle had been to the dealer on 4 separate occasions, but dealer was unable to correct the problem. When I could finally stop, I discovered the chrome trim strip above the grill had broken off and that is what flew off. Took the vehicle to dealership, who said this was normal, they should not worry about it, and to cover the brake as if the vehicle had manual transmission. The weather strip on driver's door came off and I gorilla glued it back on. They said it was cam sensors, we replaced both.
I am trying to get my money back but doubt I will be able to. Never will I trust Nissan again. Took to a place very close to me because I was afraid to drive it. I've spent so much on it it doesn't make sense anymore. This information was not disclosed to us at the time of purchase, and now we are being questioned as to the way we drive although the service manager stated that the tires only last that long based on the vehicles construction and weight.
There was a problem with the hatchback door lock. Now I'm just a bit cranky because I'm researching replacing the trim and the only option I can locate so far is having to replace the whole grill system, even though it's just the trim and is installed separate from the grill, an obvious fact as it took flight and the grill stayed in place. The panel by the passenger front door came off and I gorilla glued it on. . When shifting from park to drive, it is very difficult to shift. If the engine is restarted then the problem clears itself however that may not be possible when driving on a highway.
While driving approximately 45 mph on normal road conditions, the contact depressed the accelerator pedal followed by an extremely low power response. The vehicle was then inspected by a independent mechanic and they advised her that it may be a valve inside of the transmission. About 5 seconds later the vehicle lurched forward, and we almost hit the vehicle ahead of us. When driving the van just shuts off or slows to 5 mph no matter how much gas you give it. The doors vibrated as if they will open by themselves. The dealership reported the smell must be sulfuric acid.
The dealership replaced the catalytic converter. The contact experienced erratic shifting between gears and hesitation. The second hit came when the Quest had 93k miles. Nissan put in a rubber bumper on the door the power drivers window wont go back up after using auto down Nissan unable to find a problem transmission starts off in 3rd gear from a stop almost causing accidents. Our second incident happened about a week ago and we are very lucky that there weren't any injuries to report. I guess they're waiting until there is a lawsuit like that of Toyota. The car rides and handles wonderfully, the engine is spry and nimble, and it is a great car for long family trips.
