#1 of 4 2011 Quest - Unbolt & remove middle seat (easily)?
Sep 01, 2011 (8:56 am)
Does anyone know if either of the 2nd row seats (on a 2011 Nissan Quest) can be *unbolted* and removed without removing or impacting anything else?
I know they fold flat, but we have a couple of long trips every year where it would be handy to remove one of these seats (without messing with any under-body components, for example the gas tank).
Background only: FWIW we were deciding between a new Sienna or Odyssey (several test drives each) when on a recent trip to Virginia the only minivan at the car rental agency was a 2011 Quest S. After driving it for a week I'm very impressed by the visibility (I'm 6'0), and it's the only minivan whose driver side column dosen't block my view (seat all the way back). I also love the big mirrors and quieter ride.
That said I'd really like to know (neither dealer asked did) if I can simply unbolt and remove one of the seats with a ratchet driver without impacting or removing anything else.
That and why Nissan dosen't offer (even as an option) sun-shades on any but LE models; also why I can't get the sunroof without the DVD player. But mostly the seats question.
#2 of 4 Rent Quest 2011 from,?

Sorry I can't help you with this answer since I do not own one, but I was wondering which car rental place in Virginia you were able to rent the Quest 2011 from?
All the places I've checked around here either offer Dodge or Chrysler. I was able to find Sienna rental from local Toyota dealer which I plan to do, but no luck on being able to rent a Quest for a weekend to test it out on a longer drive.

Sorry for the delay, I don't seem to have gotten a "watched" topic reply.
We rented the 2011 Quest S from the Avis at the "Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport" (SHD), and returned it to "Washington Dulles International" (IAD).
For what it's worth... SHD is a really neat airport, and the people at the Avis counter were fantastic! We'd actually rented a car from IAD, but switched cars at SHD due to putting a hole in a tire - the folks at the Avis counter SHD went above and beyond - AND we got to drive a Quest for the next week.
I'd still love to know about unbolting & taking out a seat though.... Anyone?

Thanks, if you had gotten it from IAD, that's very close to me, I will try calling them.
