2011 Nissan Quest


  • Spacious cabin
  • Good on-demand V6 power and smooth Continuously Variable Transmission system
  • One-touch power sliding doors and lift gate
  • Distinct styling sets it apart from the competition


  • Distinct styling is not for everyone
  • Distance between rear captain’s chairs too wide to attend to baby
  • Only one screen for the rear seat passengers

Let’s play word association- I say sexy, you say…soccer moms? If that was the first thought that entered your mind, then do I have a vehicle for you. Nissan has introduced the new 2011 Quest with bold styling that sets it apart from the rest of the box-on-wheels crowd. I can’t tell you how many looks I got in the local high school parking lot last weekend. When one speaks of minivans these days, the Honda Odyssey, the Chrysler Town & Country/Dodge Grand Caravan and the Toyota Sienna come to mind. Rarely does the Nissan Quest enter the fray.

  • More utility than a Swiss army knife. This is one car that can handle most anything you throw at it, including seating for 8 passengers and lots of space.
  • It offers a limousine-like 58 cubic feet up front and in the second row seats, as well as 38 cubic feet for parcels (behind the third row) and up to 149 cubic feet with the seats folded flat
  • Car-like driving despite its behemoth size
  • Thoughtful and convenient features such as the “magic” third row seats, low rear liftover, “conversation mirror”, and built-in cooler for drinks and sandwiches up front
  • Serene ride and luxurious appointments
  • The family-hauler records a respectable 19 mpg


  • Exterior styling is a step backwards
  • Minivan stigma
  • Not available in all-wheel drive

Driving impressions
Though minivans have a negative stigma, I was excited to drive the new Odyssey. Rolling up in traffic, looking down at other commuters, I was as pumped as if I were driving a BMW 7-series. Not surprisingly, I wasn’t challenged to any drag strip races and women drivers didn’t pay me a second, let alone first, look. Hah! Little did they know what they were missing!
