#445 of 2519 Bad Nissan
Aug 29, 2000 (2:14 am)
I am or should say was the owner of a 1995 Nissan Quest. I recently took it into the dealership because I was having a problem with my transmission, conclusion at a mere 60,000 miles the car needs a new trani. I contacted Nissan and after jerking me around for over a week, while I was paying for a rental car, they offered me 10% off approximately what I had already spent paying for my rental car. The total repair bill including the fuel pump that had also gone bad was over $2,600 Dls. In essence Nissan does not stand behind its product, nor are they willing to go the extra mile when a repeat customer, this being my third Nissan, has a major problem like this with their vehicle. So be warned current and future owners of Nissan vehicles, make sure you buy the extended warranty because if you think your car would at least last up to 60,000 miles without a major repair job like I did you will be sorry. Then of course there is another option, which is the one I have opted to take, and this is never again buying any product from Nissan. So thanks for nothing Nissan!
#446 of 2519 Nissan Quest rear A/C blower
Aug 29, 2000 (7:21 pm)
I was just told by the dealer that my rear A/C blower problem on my 95 Quest will require replacing the switch panel on the dash. Total cost = $470.00, $360 for parts, $110 for labor. Does anyone share this experience or know of way to repair the switch?

check the posts in the various topics. there have been a number about a rear AC problem requiring a wire on the panel to be resoldered. I would research before spending the monwy on a new part, since dealers often would rather replace than fix.
#449 of 2519 95 Quest GXE Hesitation
Sep 04, 2000 (4:41 pm)
I have a 95 quest GXE and bought it at 45,000. Have had no problems in past 1-1/2 yrs except that a notice a hesitation when I first step on the gas. I have to keep pressing down to get smooth acceleration. I changed the gas filter,plugs, cap, and rotor when I first got the car and had the injectors cleaned a few months later. It seemed to help a bit but is seems that it is slowly getting worse( at 59,000 miles now).
Could it be the timing, or wires? Anyone else have a hesitation problem?
Any advise would be helpful

I have a 94 Quest. This is same motor etc. The manual says you should be running 91 octane. With the price of gas this may seem unreasonable.
I put an injector cleaner in a full tank about once a month. (about every 4 fillups). I also use Ethanol fuel (manufacture approved). If you can get it in your area, its rated at 89.5% octane and cost the same as regular gas. If you can't get Ethanol, I would put a higher octane in every other fill-up. Especially if you drive under a load or at higher RPM's.

Has the throttle body been cleaned? Deposits can end up there that will cause an engine to run rough and/or hesitate.

It could be your throttle plate is all gummed up with deposits.... Has the vehicle set any codes in the computer. I have changed quite a few mass-air-flow sensors because of hesitation.. Although, they usually set a code,just because it sets a code dosen't mean the check engine light will come on.. Have you told your dealer of this problem????

#453 of 2519 Side view mirror
Sep 10, 2000 (12:28 am)
I'm looking for a driver side mirror for the '99 Nissan Quest. The mirror was stolen, but the rest of the assembly is all fine. I checked with my Nissan dealer, and they say they only have the whole assembly (costs about $150), and it comes unpainted, so I have to have it painted at a body shop (another $80-100). Would very much appreciate it if anyone knows a place/store that I can order one? Thanks. JW

Have you tried calling any Auto Parts Stores???? I hate it when you have to buy the whole assembly for just one piece...
