Used Car: 2013 Nissan Quest Review
The 2013 Nissan Quest offers less cargo space than most rivals, but reviewers liked its elegant interior styling.
The 2013 Nissan Quest comes with a V6 engine and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Test drivers reported that the Quest has strong acceleration in most situations, though some wrote that a sensitive gas pedal means it doesn’t always accelerate smoothly from a stop. The 2013 Nissan Quest gets an EPA-estimated 19/25 mpg city/highway, which is typical for the class. Though some test drivers wrote that the Quest leans noticeably during cornering, most said it has handling that’s usual for the class. They noted that the Quest has a comfortable ride and nicely weighted steering, adding that the Quest’s small turning circle helps it maneuver in tight spaces.
Reviewers liked the 2013 Nissan Quest’s sophisticated interior design, excellent build quality and first-rate materials. Automotive journalists wrote that all three rows of seats in the Quest are spacious. They appreciated the Quest’s supple and supportive front seats, but noted that rearward visibility is partially blocked by thick roof pillars. The 2013 Nissan Quest has 108.4 cubic feet of total cargo space, which is among the least in the class. The 2013 Quest comes standard with push-button start and a four-speaker stereo. Available features include blind spot monitoring, navigation, Bluetooth, a USB port, a 13-speaker Bose audio system and a rear-seat DVD system. Test drivers said the Quest’s navigation system has a large, easy-to-read screen and straightforward controls.
Other Minivans to Consider
The 2013 Toyota Sienna has more cargo space than most of its rivals, and critics liked that adults fit comfortably in all three rows of seats. Test drivers also noted that the Toyota Sienna has a very comfortable ride and a powerful V6 engine.
Automotive journalists wrote that the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country’s standard Stow ‘n Go system, which allows you to fold the second- and third-row seats into the floor, makes it easy to expand the Town & Country’s cargo area. The Chrysler Town & Country’s luxurious cabin with top-notch materials also impressed reviewers when it was new.
