You state that this forum is "to state problems AND offer solutions" " the forum isn't really The Complaint Station". The "problem" is 2004 Quest owners who were lucky enough to get a good Quest. The "solution" is for Nissan to rectify these problems and not obfuscate or pretend stupidity concerning them. Those who received the problem Quests should be serviced properly and not made to feel as if they are the problem. If you like your Quest, say so and then let those with the lemons badmouth a firm that will not stand behind their product.
By the way, I was the one who brought the Customer Service Initiative to this forums huddled masses. Mine still has most of the original problems associated with the CSI and numerous more. Yes I could possibly drive two hours and wait forever to get it serviced, but I choose to butt heads with my worthless dealer and try to get good service. It also might help if you used spellcheck once in a while.

I really don't want to argue with you about this. I think I made it clear what the ground rules were in the forum and I think they are pretty fair. If your goal (and I'm not saying it is) is a jihad against Nissan, you really need to go to a government board, or hire an attorney. A forum filled with "badmouthing" is not what we are striving to do here. I'm sorry you are so unhappy with your Quest and I would be too but I'd be putting my energy into places where something might happen. We have no control or influence over Nissan, and I as Host have to try and keep everyone here happy, and most people don't really want to read the same story re-posted many times, with no solution, no result and no progress. If you tell folks (not you but the anonymous YOU out there) that their new car is a lemon, it really irritates them.
So troops, onward into the fog, and let us know of your success stories in getting your Quest squared away. Any new factory info is welcome, too, or recalls or TSBs, etc. All helpful.
Anyone unhappy with the way the forum is being run, please e-mail me privately anytime!

#1632 of 2128 LCD odometer too bright at night
Oct 20, 2005 (7:22 pm)
The 1x1 LCD odometer seems a bit bright at night. When I dim it, the other gauges are bit bit too dark. The dealer said others have complained as well. I wish they would use a lower wattage bulb or make the backlight orange. Any others find this annoying at night? It's like having a night light on your dash.
#1633 of 2128 3 Quests Doing Well
Oct 21, 2005 (5:14 am)
It's been a while since my last post but my SE has 16k miles on it and its been doing good enough that I would recommend a 2006 Quest to anyone looking. Two of my wife's brothers also bought a Quest after seeing ours, so we've had good luck with 3 vehicles (2 are 2004's, 1 is a 2005). We all liked the contemporary styling and features, which more than balanced out the "slightly" higher quality issues than the other choices (I think both Ody and Sienna have issues on their problem boards too, no vehicle is perfect).
I only get 20-22 mpg on my highway trips, but I drive between 70-80 mph on the highway. Also, I mount different snow tires on my 17" rims each winter and have not had any vibration issues. It's almost time to do it again.

Not sure what trim level Quest that you have but on mine you can adjust the brightness of the screen through the onscreen menu. Plus there is a dimmer button on the left side of the steering wheel that works like a traditional dimmer. With these two controls, I haven't had a problem like you described.
