I do sympathize with you, however I haven't seen anywhere in your posting that you have tried to sell your vehicle? You know if you try to sell it to perpective buyers in your local newspaper you can easily get your money back. I have been driving Nissan for 22 Years and never had any problems and when I sold the cars (Just sold a '91 Altima XE with 111k for 4K.(slightly over retail)allways got more money than expected. Currently I own '92 300zx, 2001 Quest and 2000 crew cab. The only money I have spent so far on any Nissan has been for Oil change and tires. I strongly suggest you try the local newspapers and sell your car and buy another name brand. I am sure every brand has a lemon once in a while.

I meant I sold '91 Stanza last week for 4K not an Altima!!!
#598 of 2519 Swooshing noise in steering wheel
Jan 26, 2001 (2:07 pm)
Trou, I have 2000-Quest and have the same problem with steering. Dealer is trying to fix it but I am not hopeful they will be able to. I also have a clanking noise in transmission when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. They say this is normal !! Pasanger side sliding door rattles too. Really a piece of junk. mrugshalhotmail.com.

I am glad we are not the only ones that feel this van is a piece of junk. I am so tried of the service dept telling us that a problem is "normal". This isn't our first van but our first quest (and our last) we have never had as many things go wrong. The workmanship in our van is poor to say the least. I had molding come off in my hand, molding come off the sliding door. the air bag cover lift, the turn signal doesn't stay down when the wheel is turned only slightly ( I am told this is normal I only hope that I don't have somebody slam the back of this van while I am fighting with the signal to stay down) and of course the noise in the steering wheel. If you have read earlier comments you will know the major repairs to the transmission, axle and motor mounts. Over the last few weeks it has made a intermited noise in the brake area not one you would expect when you need brakes. We have had enough. Nissan has been the worst company to deal with (actually they don't want to discuss . Its their way or no way). Good Luck (you will need it)

I guess there are lemons built with every van, however, if you go over and look at the Honda van forum, you will come back and kiss your Quest. S'funny, I have 20,000 miles om my 1999 and NO problems have surfaced. Did you buy a demo orused van?

I read your message on other board that you were trying for Lemon Law protection. Any luck? I am trying the same. Can we get in touch over email? mrugshalhotmail.com

#604 of 2519 Engine dying with 95 Quest
Feb 09, 2001 (10:31 am)
Hi! I have a 95 Quest and have had a problem that no one can diagnose. On 3 seperate occasions my engine has just turned off on the freeway. The first time was at about 10K miles and we had been driving in the heat, air on for hours, climbing altitude, etc. The 2nd time was about 90K mi later on a VERY hot day (116 deg) and the air had been on for 2.5 hours. The last time was just recently but it wasn't too hot (only about 80 deg) but the air had been on about 1.5 hours. The engine just dies. If I wait a bit, I can restart the car and drive a few miles until it dies again. If I let the car completely cool down it drives just fine. This problem hasn't left a code and the service people can't duplicate the problem. Any one out there had a similar problem? If so, what did you do? Thanks in advance!
