If you do not get any where with your arbitration case, let me know. I also went through BBB, and went through the whole arbitration and got nothing from it, I got a few offers from Nissan all wanting to make me keep the piece of junk quest. I found a lawyer that Nissan has to pay for and I can give you that info if you would like. To say the leaset, I am out of my quest, and Nissan paid me $5,000, so I put that down on a New vehicle, and payments were much less. Would never get another quest again!!!!! amy_gill_2000yahoo.com
Feel free to write me. Now in my new vehicle
#1709 of 2128 04 Quest SL tire choice
Dec 06, 2005 (11:52 am)
I've been looking for tires around my area and www.tirerack.com to replace one on my 04 Quest. Since they are rare model, only model I can find is the same one it has. When I called NTB, the guy suggested use 235/65/16 instead of 225/60/16 tires. He said it will fit. Does anyone know about this? I just want to double check on this. I wish I could return this piece of junk back to Nissan Dealer. Ever since I had this car from NOV 2003, all I had was problems after problems. Problems with fuel pump, display screen, door rattle, door won't open, and of course brakes. I can't even remember other minor things... Who knows what I will have next...

NTB has fitments for both Goodyear TripleTred and Michelin HydroEdge, among others.
If you pick a tire you can go to the website, or tirerack, and look at the specs for rolling diameter, revolutions per mile, and load rating. There are numerous choices. You can pick the one that matches up closest, or costs the least. The 235/60x16 seemed to be a few dollars less expensive than 215 or 225/60x16, for whever reason.

Thanks for your info. Actually, the guy suggested 235-60-16. This gives me a lot more choice like Michelin. I just want to make sure it works with my car.

Thanks I'll keep it in mind. We meet tomorrow at 1:00. Nissan did offer us $500.00 and said that they would honor the warrenty. No dice. And to top it all off the van is making funny noises again. What were the particulars in your case. How many days, How many attempts. What state are you in?
#1713 of 2128 Transmission Gear Selector Lever Sticking
Dec 07, 2005 (5:59 pm)
I don't know whether this problem has been addressed elsewhere in this forum (I'll search after I post), but has anyone had a problem with the transmission gear selector lever getting stuck in park? It happened twice over the weekend to my 2004 Quest SL without any apparent cause, and took a lot of jiggling/yanking/tugging, etc. before I could get the van in gear. I took it into the shop on Monday, and they claimed they adjusted the shift cables and cleaned and repositioned the knob to fix the problem. Unfortunately, it happened again twice last night, and the second time it took me over 25 minutes of struggling before the lever somehow slipped into gear (I have no idea how).
I took it into the dealer again today, and of course they couldn't re-create the problem, so they have no idea how to fix it. They're keeping it overnight to see if it will lock up after staying out all night, and if that doesn't work they said they'd try and have their courtesy shuttle driver test drive it after his shuttling duties to see if he can re-create my situation. However, if anybody has experienced this problem before and is aware of a solution I can present to them, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Well we did the arbitration thing today. Not supposed to discuss it though. Nissan should be embarrased by the way they are turning their back on their customers.
Does anyone know where I can get a lemon sticker or magnet for my car. Or one that says that this car is a lemon

Was it in your favor? I had a lemon law case (same sipulation about discussing). It was in my favor, but I do still own the van

Had this problem occur at times when parked on a slight incline. Was able to get it out of park by sticking a small screwdriver in the slot above the gearshift to release the locking mechanism. There is a small plastic cover over this slot. There is a description in the owner’s manual how to do this. The Nissan mechanic was able to duplicate the problem. They really did not know what caused it but replaced the gearshift and it has not happened since.
