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.

13500 miles on my 04 SE. Had the brake issues. The dealer did the rotor work on all four (charged me for front only, their mistake). Seems to have fixed the problem. Nissan Customer service said I was beyond the 12,000 mile brake warranty therefore it was not covered. Fought the issue but they would not budge. I find it very strange that this happened on a relatively new vehicle especially with the Titan/Armada brake issues. I will be curious to see if it happens again.

We have an 04 Quest and had the rotors turned at around 12K already. Buddy at work has a Titan and they told him that Nissan is aware, but won't admit, that the rotors are too small for vehicles. They cannot dissipate the heat sufficiently so they eventually warp. Might want to see if they will discuss this, they probably won't.
#1457 of 2128 04 Quest would not accelerate
Aug 12, 2005 (10:43 am)
This happened twice so far. Car was driven for a few hours, stopped for lunch, got back in, started no problems, put in DRIVE, but the car would not move. Tach was showing RPM rising, going up to approx 3000-3500 RPM but car would not move forward. Put car in REVERSE, no problem. Car moved as it should. Put car back in DRIVE, again, RPM rise but no movement.
First time it happened wife shut car down, called me. She then restarted car and it worked fine. Brought to dealer, usual story, dealer said no faults found. They could not find any fault codes in computer nor any issues when driving.
Issue happened again yesterday. Stopped car and had dealer tow it to their shop. Same story, they can not find anything wrong.

Thank for your help. The situation described in the Nissan SB looks excactly like my issue. I called the dealer this morning, they still had not found anything and he said that he was going to call the Nissan tech line today!! I asked him why did it take 5 days for him to call the engineers?!? He could not answer the question. I then laid the SB you mentioned on him and asked him why doos it take us as the customer/consumer to find the answers? He said that he was not familiar with that web site (Nissanhelp.com) and if I could please fax him a copy of NISSAN'S SB!!!!! Pending the call back form him this afternoon, we might be heading to court on this one. Wife is an attorney and she is plenty mad. She has had a rental since Wed night that, per the dealer, if they can not find a problem the whole issue will not be covered under warranty. Hence they might try to pin the labor and rental charges against us.
