All 2004 Quests had their bumper to bumper warranty extended from 3/36 to 5/60. This includes everything from the sliding doors, airbag, radio issues, etc.
If a dealer will not honor contact Nissan USA. The dealer knows it is all covered. This was done as a result of the numerous issues with the doors and radio.
I was one of the very first people to experience the radio issue and the first in NJ to have it corrected. I also have kept up on all changes to the warranty and you should have had this fixed years ago. Did you buy it used? The only way you could be out of warranty if if you van was originally purchased Sept 03, which would make it one of the very first vans sold

What plashenick said and what I said originally. All 2004 Quests are covered by 5yr/60k extended bumper to bumper warranty. Your radio should be covered not unless you are out of warranty based on years. I would contact Nissan Customer Service.

That's really great mileage.
The highest I've achieved is 27 going one way...the way back it lowered the overall mpg.
Is that the CVT?

I got over 29 a couple weeks ago with 7 occupants. Kept it at 60mph with the cruise control the whole way. There was a bit of a tailwind that might have helped.

Kept it at 60mph
I think that is the key...but very difficult for some of us to do

We too are getting the VDC light, 64k miles now. We at next start up it goes off. However, I did notice that the brake fluid was getting low.
We still love our van, guess not hearing anything much from 06+ models here means the quibbles are gone. Any news on the 2010 version of the Quest?

Not much is available on the 2010 Quests. With the auto sales in the tank and companies struggling, i would not be surprised if Nissan kept the current design for an additional year.
#2312 of 2475 New Tires for 2004 Quest
Dec 10, 2008 (11:26 am)
I purchased new tires for my 2004 Quest yesterday, Michelin Primacy MXV4. They are on sale at Sears through 12/24. Plus you get free installation ($56 value). This is my 3rd set of tires. The OEM Goodyears lasted about 39k miles. They were OK to 20k miles. After that...... I replaced them with Hankook Optimo H418. The Hankook are rated for 60k miles but only lasted 27k miles and two of the tires were already at the wear bars. My advice, do not buy these tires unless money is extremely tight. Not very good in light snow.
One thing I did notice is there are more choices in the 225/65-16" this time. I had a choice of the Michelins, Yokohama Avid TRZ and General Altimax HP along with the Hankook. I would have went with the Yokohama's but the sale at Sears put the Michelins and Yokohama's at the same price. The Michelins are rated higher. We'll see.

We got the Yokohama AVID TRZ and are VERY happy with them. The OEM's lasted 40k or so.
The OEM tires, after 10k, were very poor in the rain...wheel spin at most lights. AVID's are much better.
The AVID's also are much quieter. A noticeable amount when first installed; like going 20mph slower (60mph seemed like 40mph--road noise wise). They are also absorb harsh bumps, such as an auto-gate rail or rail road tracks, better.
We felt like it was a new vehicle; not sure if they'll last the 80k, but atleast they'll be pro-rated a bit...
