Any brake or tire shop can put a device on your rotors to check for high spots or run out that would cause vibration in the steering wheel. It sounds like your dealer may not have purchased the Nissan mandated Pro-Cut rotor lathe yet. Ask them if they have this machine. If you are going to buy tires have that shop check your rotors first, I bet they are the problem.I bet at 40k miles the dealer does not think Nissan will pay to resurface your rotors. At least they could have checked them.Good luck.

I have a problem and was wondering if any one else has experienced this problem. I drove my vehicle on Saturday all day and parked in my garage, when I went to start it the following morning it would not start. The gauges were bright and everything worked just not enough power to turn over. I jump started it and drove it for most of the day and I parked it washed it and when I went to move it, the same thing happend. I figured let me jump start it and just drive if over to my local dealer and leave it there. I checked the battery fluid level and everything was ok. This battery is only about 8 months old. It was replaced before I took delivery of the vehicle. So I doubt if it is a dead battery that is causing this problem. Something else is going on.

Here's my saga...Got the tires rotated for the second time (16k on 04 SL). First time it was because steering wheel shook. Second time, didn't shake until outside shop rotated tires. Took to Nissan. They turned the rotors and said my front tires were out of round (oval instead of circular - Goodyear Eagles LS2). Said they couldn't do anything, tires should be under warranty, no expense. Finally found a shop to replace the tires - they prorated them and I had to pay over $100. Well, took a long family trip and all the way, the steering wheel shook and vibrated (regardless of stopping or on highway - more at higher speeds). This cannot be just a rotor problem or tire problem - steering column? Anybody got an idea? I'm taking it in a couple of days from now. As far as I'm concerned, they should pay for the two tires since they missed it the first time.

Try measuring the AC with the vehicle moving. The compressor works better when the vehicle is moving. I just came back from a 10 day vacation where temperatures were routinely in the mid to upper 80's and reached 100 on one occasion and did not have an issue with the AC. My kids actually complained about it being too cold. Total time in the van: over 45 hours
Last year I also complained about the AC until I started using the recirc mode more often. The Recirc mode works well then after some time I switch to outside air to "warm" the vehicle up and to get some fresh air. I did notice the outside air setting was fine after using the recirc mode. Either way, absolutely no complaints with the AC in the 10 days.
You have to remember that there is a lot of space to cool down plus there are a lot of windows. And if you have the rear vent sgoing, you may have to keep the AC at ahigher level then normal. I kept my fan setting on 2.

Checked mine. Yes, a portion of it is flattened.

I have an 04 3.5S. Last week my son went to close the passenger side sliding door & the entire window shattered and actually blew a 6 inch hole out of the center of the piece of glass.
I talked with the dealer today & the glass is back in, however they are now saying that the door itself does not sit properly in the door jamb & that if we were to take the van as is it will happen again at some point. Basically, the glass it hitting/very close to the frame & thus causing undue stress on the glass.
Has anyone run into a situation such as this?

What is the TSB # for the 3rd row seat rattle? I think this is the problem I have.
#1452 of 2128 Re: 2004 Quest - Nissan buyback? [qltypck]
Aug 10, 2005 (9:21 am)
I had a buyback and it advantageous if you have lower accumulated miles. If you are moving to a 2005 which sells at a lot cheaper now with sales going on you may not need to shell out any more. Maybe the dealer is selling the 2005 to you at MSRP wherein you can get it at 4K to 8K lower than MSRP.
It should be the Price Paid (including taxes and destination) minus mileage used. There is a formula Nissan uses for mileage computation. Check with BBB's formula based on your mileage (deduction = # miles x price / 100,000).
A buyback would let you transition to a different make of Van which doesn't need to be another Quest.

Quite a coincidence; when we took delivery of our '04 Quest SE, it wouldn't start due to a dead battery. I wonder how common this is among Quest owners.
