Good to hear from others with a positive story! We too love our 2004 Quest SE.
Yes, your right about the bug catcher bumper. I too have wondered about the invisible paint protector. I didn't try it because I was afraid that it would prevent the paint from faiding at the same rate (over time, of course).
I have also noticed that there is a lot of debris caught in the air filter box, like leaves, and bugs.

I have an 04 Quest SL and have had a clear bra on it for 2 and half years. It covers all of the front bumper and lower grill, 3/4's of the hood and the side mirrors. It is a great product. I wash it and wax it just like rest of the paint. You can hardly tell it is there. It doesn't fade the paint and can easily be removed if I wanted. Some bugs take a bit of elbow grease to scrubbing to get off, but 2 and half years later and the front of my Quest still looks great with no paint chips or scratches.
I had it installed at a car detail shop that I use. It was $450.00 back then and took them about 2 hours. I don't know what the price would be now. $20.00 seems a bit low.
I definitely recommend looking into it. I also read they can cut and put this product in the cups of the door handles were rings and fingernails scratch the paint. My wife loves wearing lots of rings and the door handle cups have become scratched. Fortunately our Quest is silver, so it isn't as noticeable.

I used to own a 2004 Nissan Quest. I encountered just about all the possible problems anyone could possibly have with any vehicle. I can't believe my trade in, a 1993 Nissan Maxima, and my 2004 Quest were actually manufactured by the same company. How a company could produce 2 vehicles that span the entire spectrum of quality is beyond belief, but that was over an 11 year period and ownership changed from Japan based to France based. After a brutal 2 and a half years I put an end to the misery and traded it in for a perfect 2006 Toyota RAV4. It's a little smaller but have only had to change the oil in the first 9 months of ownership.

And here we have another new poster - a single post in fact - who has had a PERFECTLY horrible experience with a Quest - but has a perfect experience with a Toyota.
I'm starting to think there is one person behind all these vague but uniformly negative posts.....

Every internet forum will get a certain number of trolls.
We're PERFECTLY happy with our EARLY BUILD '04 Quest. We've stayed up to date on the recalls and necessary TSBs, now sitting at 66,000 miles on our 3.5 Liter engine that has won Ward's 10 best engines award many years in a row.
Troll neutralized with this POSITIVE post.

Though my handle says july2004quest, it's an absent-minded mistake -- we're actually a july2003quest. In other words, probably one the first 1000 off the production line and most likely one of the first 20 in Northern Calif. We, too, are happy with our Quest and would buy again.

I bought mine in Sep 2003 and been keeping up with all the recalls. I can't say that I am NOT happy with the van. I drove my friend's 2005 Sienna and Odyssey and prefer mine over Sienna and Odyssey is actually nicer than mine. Maybe the early built new Quest had better quality??

I have the same problem and had the dealer check that out. They couldn't find anything wrong but ever since the clock is making good time??? Go figure.
