Yeah..you have the same thing I had. I had mine repaired and have had no problems since. I have not been able to find a printable version of the entire bulletin online (5 pages), but have found the reference information and summary description. You should be able to show this to the service advisor and he can find it on the Nissan Service database. If you still get the "trainee salute" from the service guy, you need to find another dealership.

#74 of 112 power sliding doors
Oct 25, 2011 (6:47 am)
Hello, Does anybody know whether the van needs to be in Parked position to operate the power sliding doors? In the owners manual it says the doors can be operated if it meets one of the criteria.
When the ignition switch is in the “ON” position,the system can be operated in the above and one of the following conditions.
. Selector lever is set in the “P” (Park) position.
. Brake pedal is depressed.
. Parking brake is applied.
However, I am unable to open the doors when it is Drive position , even if both Brakes are depressed. Are there any settings to make this work?
Any inputs are appreciated.

On the "old" one you always had to have it in Park...which you might as well do if you have the brake applied or Parking brake on.
Unless you're trying to open it as you're braking; i think it needs to be a complete stop...no pushing the kids out while you roll by

On the 'old' Quest we found the Yokohama AVID to have very good wet characteristics.
The only thing...we need a tire replacement after 40k miles which is half the 80k rating. Luckily Discount Tire will prorate the difference.

I have Michelin Primacy on my 2004. Great tires! but expensive. Michelin has the $70 gift card with 4 tires promotion going on right now.
#79 of 112 So how do you like your new Quest?

I still have my 2003 Odyssey and waiting for it to go...
How do you like your 2011/2012 Quest? Besides the low gas/hill problem, any other problems? Favorite aspect of the Quest?

We ave our '11 LE since Apr 1 (10,5kmi - $36,600 plus TTT), Car drive great for the most part
- Gets about 22/24 on hwy vs 25/27 of my 04 SL. I think the CVT burns more fuel.
- Interior is great
- Ride is smotth, but I think the cr slides more in the wet. I have the OEM Toyo tires and am thinking about Michelin or Perilli tires.
- I don't like the placement of the sliding door buttons. They are to the left of the steering wheel so only drive can access.
- DVD in dash is better than under the passenger seat (04).
- We got the Black Amythest (wife's favorite color). I see they discontinued for the 2012. We got a fantastic price (severl dealrs offred $38 with sunroof), I think they wanted to sell their first Quest for '11. We wanted one before new cars from potentially irradiated factoreis.

A CVT is supposed to give better mileage.
27 is very good for the 04 since it's rated only for 24 on the highway.
The EPA shows 04 vs 11 as
17/24 vs 19/24
so it should be pretty much the same...more or less...
how did you manage $36.6k for an LE when the invoice is 38.6k...especially in April? Edmunds shows $40k for the TMV.

Not saying the MPG is bad, just when I took a 2,000 mile drive this summer and compared it to my 04 when it had 80K on it the 04 did much better at constant highway speed. The highest I got was 24 with the 2011 and saw a lot of 22. Could it be the weight, the efficiency of the CVT, I cannot say.
For the price the MSRP was ~$42-43k. Several dealers agreed to $38k on the phone (NJ) for an LE with sunroof. No roof reduced price to $36.9 ($1,100 for roof). My Nissan Rewards card added another $250 off the price once negotiated.
I closed the deal Mar 31. I think it was all about
- Want to sell their first LE
- Uncertainty about the inventory stream after Japan quake
- Quarter & month quota. Although they agreed to keep the price for Apr if they could not find the card I wanted, but agreement was if they find I will be before EOM.
I never believe what is listed as TMV as there are too many variables at play for a car pricing: dealer incentives, sales quotas, Factory to dealer rebates based upon obtained volumes, expectation of using dealer service. Our dealership is the 3rd largest auto dealership in US, so they do work volume.
I have bought from them before and always got a good price. I also sold them my 04 for the same price every other dealer offered me. They sold it for several thousand more within 2 weeks. While people want to treat these two transactions as separate, they never are. I do not believe I 'gave up" anything on the trade (I could sell for more on my own, but time = money). I would still have had the same deal on the new van as I negotiated that first, before the trade-in.
One rule I have is I will not walk into a dealership without a price in my hand to begin with. I see they now are giving ~3k back on the van, makes you wonder how much was transparent in Apr to keep dealer stock moving with Nissan facing a very steep selling issue.
