The 2006 Odyssey is a nicer overall van than the 2007 Quest. And you're right that both have their share of problems. But the Odyssey is in higher demand and has higher resale value.
One year later, my 2004 Quest is still chugging along. I had an issue with the camshaft position sensors last summer and (surprise, surprise) rotors! Never seen such poor brake design!

Actually we have been a Nissan fan for some years. Let's see, Had a 1991 Maxima, then 1993 Sentra, then 1996 Pathfinder, then a 2004 Maxima in 2004, then we down sized for a 2000 maxima. When we found out that we were expecting our first baby, we upgraded to a 2005 Nissan Murano in 2008, then realized, that we didn't need an SUV so down sized I guess to a 2005 Maxima in 2009. Sold the 2005 Maxima on Dec 2010 and bought a 2005 Avalon (my wife and I didn't like the toyota at all) traded that with a 2004 Acura TL and month later we found out that we are expecting again so I put the Acura up for sale thinking that I have few months to sell but the first person that saw the car bought it. I have been looking for a van for a month or so, I was leaning toward the Quest at first but for some reason, I didn't have the same feelings for the quest as Maximas..
FYI, Friend of mine is a Dealer and he called me monday to tell me that a 2009 Quest with 144k miles sold for $9000 at the auction while 2006 Honda Odyssey with 224k miles was up for sale for $9900. I was wondering who's going to pay $10k for a 224k miles. It's a honda but but it's not made to be driven millions of miles...

Bought an 04 Quest when it was 3 years old 36,000 miles. Bought the extended warranty for about $900. THe warranty paid for itself in repairs. New front bearings, Oxygen sensor, Key fob, motor mounts. The thing goes through rotors like crazy but I get them free through Meineke because byt the time they wear they are still in warranty. After 100,000 miles I have replaced Control Arms, rear shocks. The tire pressure reading system does not work right but I am not replacing that. It always thinks I have a flat tire. The vehicle runs great, never has broken down, now has 116,000 miles on it but it seems there are always stupid things as mentioned wearing out on it. I plan on keeping it for a while as it sure is hell cheaper than buying a new van. My next will be a Toyota or Honda. Not really impressed with Nissan. Glad I bought the warranty for all the early stuff that happened.
