See my history on this problem. bperk, "Nissan Quest 2004+ Problems & Solutions" #1792, 20 Jan 2006 6:08 pm
Guess what! Wifey is complaining that the steering wheel is vibrating again with the 3rd set of rotors... aggghhh.
There only 2000 miles on these rotors... agghhhh.
Its a good job I ordered a set of frozen rotors for the front wheels over the weekend. As I posetd before Im installing a set of frozen rotors on the front and rear of the van as I am exhausted with this issue. The front with shipping cost me about $250.00. I'll keep ya all posted how I make out with them.

The brakes may not be the culprit. A couple of posters psoted about problems with the steering wheel vibrating. the solution had to do with an adjustment in the steering rack while under load. If I remember right it took a few visits to the dealer to get it resolved.

When I got new tires they forgot to Balance and had a vibration over 60mph. After balancing the issue went away; drover over 80mph to test
#1839 of 2128 Problem with Fuel Gauge
Mar 07, 2006 (11:34 am)
Wife got my car filler yesterday, but Fuel gauge read 1/4 full. DTE said 80 miles (which corresponds. Brought it back to stations and checked that the tank was full (1/2 hour after initial fueling). The tank was full, and the gauge was saying 1/2 full (138 DTE). Next morning car was still saying 1/2 full. I am bringing this to the dealer as it may be a computer / sensor problem.
Anyone ever have this trouble?

We had this happen on our '04 once. Eventually, the gauge caught up and went to full, but it took more than one day. Has not happened again however, and I blamed it on a sticky float. I dont know if this is all that the gauge uses similar to older vehicles, but it has not occurred other than that one time.

My 2004 Quest has less than 22,000 miles and from mile 17 I have had problems with the back roof window leaking water (replaced twice and is still leaking), severe vibration in the steering wheel and insisted that the rotor be changed - dealer stated they were and yet the car still vibrated. I had the wheels pulled and proved the rotor hadn't been scraped or replaced. The same went on with the side panel doors. While the dealership had my car, they damaged the bumper and back passenger panel and had to replace them and repaint. From there, during touch up painting they got paint all over the windshield, mirror, roof and a few other areas. This took 4 trips to correct. They then broke the roof sliding top and while correcting that, they got some sort of glue all over the interior top resulting in my visors being stuck to the top and discoloration (as if bleached) of the rest. They had to replace the entire interior section. My vibrating steering wheel problem is horrible and yet the dealership says they can't duplicate the problem. I have even taken the service manager on a ride showing the vibration and yet, the situation has gotten worse and no correction yet. My sliding door on the drivers side won't open when you touch the handle. The tires constantly loose air and from day one there was a nail in one tire (the dealership had construction going on) and yet they couldn't find the nail. After four trips and complaints, I stood with the repair people while I had them put it up on the lift and finally, you could see the nail. They pulled it out, said they repaired it and not even 10 miles down the road, my tire started going flat and of course they were closed then so I had to have it repaired at a tire shop and made them show me the repair when they took the tire off. You wouldn't believe it but the dealership never even sealed the interior of the tire. The dealership did refund this money. The dealership in the last year has had my Quest for 118 days (they did provide me a shop car). Unfortunately, my woe hasn't ended. I was in constant contact with the Regional Dealership Managers and told them I wanted my vehicle bought back - as I can tell from just finding this site, Nissan would have to buy back all of ours. Perhaps we need to get a Class Action legal action going? I would like to know if everyone finally had all the recalls (sliding doors) or whatever repaired and what was the tire issue recall as I couldn't find that. Thanks for your ear.

I appreciate your input but believe me its the brakes (rotors) that are giving us grief. I aware of the steering wheel issue (I dont have that issue) but this is definately the brakes.
#1843 of 2128 Aftermarket wheels

Anyone buy aftermarket wheels for a Quest?
Do the 200-2003 wheels fit? Or Altima or other Nissan wheels?

same here. It happened once when I drove it almost to empty. I filled it up but the gauge didn't seem to move at first. Then it started moving up very slowly (over a day or two). It's been working fine since and never occurred again. (Current mileage ~ 14K).

Same here! The guage would stay in low position after fillup, but after a day or so it read full. Happened for about 3 weeeks then went away.
