Nissan to shift 2 cars out of U.S.
TOKYO -- Japanese automaker Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. plans to move production of two vehicles to Japan from the United States to save costs on automobiles produced in smaller quantities, according to a news report Sunday.
Nissan will move production of the Quest minivan and the Infiniti QX56 sport utility vehicle from the company's plant in Canton, Miss., over 2008-09, Japan's Nihon Keizai business daily said. The paper did not identify its sources.
Nissan said it sold 40,000 Quests and 15,000 QX56s in North America in 2005.
The Mississippi plant's pickup truck production would increase.

Why was this thread closed anyway? Sometimes I have hard time keeping up with all the changes in Edmunds...

You can read more about the recent changes in our Forums Software -- Your Questions Answered discussion, but the most important thing is that the main Quest topic is up and running again. Welcome back

I agree, at least they've reopened some of the basic forums, such as this one. I too didn't think it made sense. Now I just hope more members/owners come back....

In an attempt to change format to smaller & more diverse discussions, you went "read only" on "Nissan Quest 2004+ Problems & Solutions." Since then, with the exception of a few tire posts, it seems as though virtually all 2004+ Problems & Solutions discussion has disappeared. For a short time, you removed "read only" from the original 2004+ Problems & Solutions thread, then you locked it again. My point is that 2004+ Quest is substantially different from all previous Quests, and the original thread is an excellent place to share & track problems. Can you please unlock it again? Thanks.

Ebay or a dealer are probably your best bets. Not many junk yards will have 2004+ Quests on hand for parting out.
#2137 of 2475 update on our 05 S model
Dec 27, 2006 (1:27 pm)
To get this board back to life, here's an update on our van. We bought it in June 05 and it now has 18K trouble free miles. We get about 21 mpg in mixed driving. The van is a stylish and comfortable family hauler. Couldn't ask for much more.

Or 05 SE bought in June 05 has 20K miles. We get 17-18 mpg in mixed driving...which bothered me until I looked at the average speed (reset at each fill up). An average speed of 20 mph is not going to give good mileage.
Passenger sliding door is making strange noises...like squishing Styrofoam...have to check to make sure nothing is jammed in there.
A few of the squeaks bother me...but is usually masked by the other noises of child seats, loose change, DVD floating around, etc.
Even though this van originally can out in 04, we still (5-6 times a year) get comments from strangers on how “awesome” it.
On a side note...I've finally discovered how to drive it “smooth”. The van would shift hard during normal driving. What I found was that driving manual for approx 20 years has trained my right foot to lift slightly just before the shits would occur. In order to drive it smoothly I have to apply a constant throttle position...and keep myself from glancing at the tach. If only they placed a 6 speed manual in the thing
