#352 of 2519 Anybody having squeaking sound coming from the front end
Jun 05, 2000 (9:10 pm)
Anybody having this problem? My Quest 1999 makes a squeaking sound only when I go over a bump at a very slow speed. Took it to the local dealer, and they wanted to change some front-end parts. Waiting for the dealer to confirm the parts from the Nissan parts warehouse. Hopefully the squeaking will be gone. Just came from a trip to Vegas. Roundtrip about 3k, Quest drove nicely without any problem. I enjoyed the drive very much, and got 23-24 MPG on Hwy.
#353 of 2519 1994 Quest - Advice on Buying
Jun 10, 2000 (6:40 am)
I'm thinking about buying a 1994 Quest XE from a friend's friend. The car has 63K miles, power windows and locks, dual air, and driver's side air bag.
I'd like to hear from anyone who's had experience with this model. I'm looking for a quiet car, with good body integrity, reliable, and no constant annoying electrical problems (as in my old Mits Montero). Decent acceleration is a plus.

The older a vehicle gets, the more likely it is to have electrical problems. Friends of mine, with a 94 GXE, had to replace a power window motor (at 50k) and the a/c directional control motor (at 75k).
They actually considered these minor problems. Of course, it also helped that they were covered on their extended service warranty. I believe these prob's combined would have cost them several hundred dollars.
With as many electrical components that this van has, it may not be a bad idea to purchase an extended warranty. My 2 cents. Good luck.

#355 of 2519 warranty work?
Jun 10, 2000 (5:29 pm)
Hello, we are shopping for Quests 94-97
Where can I go online with the VIN # to find if any warranty work has been done on a specific vehicle?
Jun 10, 2000 (6:52 pm)
I'm not sure where you can get warranty work information online.
But I do know that you can get that kind of information directly through Nissan Corporation Customer service. 1-800-nissan1
Just let them know you're shopping for a used vehicle, and you'd like to get as much information as you can about it.... They've been pretty cooperative/helpful with me in the past. They can also verify what factory options are on the vehicle.

You can go to Carfax (there is a link on edmunds) I looked up our old van and found 2 items listed. We had had 2 transmissions installed under warranty. You do have to pay to find out exactly what the work was.
#358 of 2519 Manifold bolts
Jun 12, 2000 (5:09 pm)
Check the manifold bolts on the older Quests. I believe they were problematic and had to be replaced at considerable expense on the Villager. I believe that Nissan replaced them under warranty but probably will not do so now.

Daric, did you get an answere from Nissan Service Rep on the mid-seat shaking issue?
I am going to the hearing on this issue this Friday (6/23). I want to conference you in if possible (or allowed).
Another person (Ralph Long), who had the same problem, and sued Nissan before will be available for conference call too.
You can email me:
#361 of 2519 Taping Phone Conversations
Jun 21, 2000 (2:54 pm)
Many Companies notify their telephone customers that they are "taping this conversation to ....provide better service, etc". This is primarily due to some States require that both parties to a telephone conversation be notified and agree to the taping of the conversation. This is required regardless of State of origin or receipt of the phone call. IMHO that is the primary reason for the taping notice. Check with Linda Tripp; MD is one of those States requiring both parties' agreement to taping phone calls.
BTW Renault has bought controlling interest in Nissan, sacre blue.
