#376 of 2519 Quest that rattles
Jul 12, 2000 (4:28 am)
thank you for your advise, I called Nissan Consumer Affairs and I am still waiting for a reply. I will be sending and email to BBB Auto Line.
I was conacted by Todd G. Finneran an Attorney at Law from Columbus, Ohio. He says he represents some consumers in a lemon law arbitration
case against Nissan concerning excess vibration in their 1999 Nissan Quest.
Does any one have any info on him or this case?
#377 of 2519 Nissans are great!

This forum looks like it could use some good news.
I own a 1982 Nissan 200SX with 297K miles on it and it runs great. All original parts except for clutch & pressure plate.
Also have a '94 Quest with 78K miles and it has performed flawlessly both mechanically and body/interior.

Todd is currently helping his clients on the same issue of Quest using BBB Autoline program. They seems going to have a hearing next week.
You might want to follow up with him on the result or anything that may helps.

Quest 99 and 2000 are different than the Nice Niisans you experienced.
They are manufactured by Ford, in US. I don't know whether that makes the difference.
#381 of 2519 Discontinued model concerns
Jul 15, 2000 (2:01 pm)
I am seriously looking into my first Minivan purchase due to an expanding family and a desire to take the family on comfortable road trips (don't plan to exceed the 2.5 child average)..my growing concern with the Nissan/Mercury model was the recent announcement to discontinue production of this model in two years..does anyone else see this as an issue for potential buyers..your feedback is greatly appreciated...
#382 of 2519 Hi devinf- Discontinued model.
Jul 15, 2000 (3:12 pm)
My 2 cents:
I don't perceive a problem with buying a vehicle thats going to be discontinued... if it's reliable, comfortable, and priced right.
Resale value may be effected, but that can be counter balanced by taking advantage of the discounts and incentives up front.
Warranty/Parts- When a vehicle is discontinued, the manufacturer is still responsible for the warranty/parts. In addition, they have to have parts available for at least 2o years.
Also keep in mind many of the Quest/Villager parts are also shared with other vehicles in the ford/nissan line up. For example, much of the Quest power train is the same used in the Pathfinder and Infinity Qx4.
Btw, I recently read that Nissan will have a new minivan in 2003. It very well may be a different version of the Quest with a different name. Anyone else heard anything?

#384 of 2519 Crankshaft Problem
Jul 19, 2000 (11:55 pm)
We have a 1994 Quest GXE with 104K miles. We bought the van from a dealer at 32K (lease return) and had no problems with it until last week, when the crank shaft snapped. My mechanic at first thought it was a broken timing belt, but after removing the engine, he found that the the crank shaft broke. He said he does not know of this being a problem with the Quest. Has anyone else had this happen, or know if this is a problem with the van. FYI, this repair is EXPENSIVE!
