Used Car: 2014 Nissan Quest Review
The 2014 Nissan Quest has a stylish, comfortable cabin, reviewers said, but its rivals offer more standard features and have greater cargo space.
The 2014 Nissan Quest comes standard with a V6 engine, which critics reported feels powerful. It’s mated to a smooth-shifting, standard continuously variable transmission (automatic), according to test drivers, who said it can be noisy when driving uphill. According to the EPA, the 2014 Quest earns 19/25 mpg city/highway, which is above average for the class. The Quest has a comfortable ride, auto journalists wrote, but rival minivans such as the Mazda5 have more agile handling. They added that the Quest has accurate steering, strong brakes and a small turning radius that helps with maneuverability.
The majority of critics commented that the 2014 Nissan Quest's interior is composed of top-notch materials and has an attractive look. They added that the Quest's first- and second-row seats are very comfortable, and that the third-row seats are fairly spacious. Cargo space in the Quest is low for the class. Standard features include push-button start and a four-speaker stereo system with an auxiliary input. Available features for the 2014 Quest include power sliding doors, a rear-seat entertainment system, a 13-speaker Bose audio system, a power liftgate, blind spot monitoring, navigation and Nissan's Around View Monitor, which uses multiple cameras to provide a 360-degree view around the vehicle. Bluetooth and a USB port are available on the Sienna, but standard in several 2014 minivans. The audio and climate controls are easy to use, auto writers said.

Other Minivans to Consider
The 2014 Honda Odyssey has more cargo space than the Quest, and it has many more standard features, such as Bluetooth and a rearview camera. The Odyssey also has excellent handling for a minivan, reviewers said, and its interior is handsome and spacious.
Critics reported that the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country has a versatile cargo area, with second- and third-row seats that fold flat into the floor to maximize space. The Town & Country also has numerous standard features that aren't standard in the Quest, such as a rear-seat DVD entertainment system and leather seats.
