The 2012 Nissan Quest
The #1 Vehicle for Busy Families!

The 2012 Nissan Quest is an ideal family car for your busy life.

The 2012 Nissan Quest is the perfect minivan for your active family! Whether you’re driving your child off to college, scooting around town doing errands, using all seven seats to drop the kids off at practice, taking all the gear to the game, or driving 1,500 miles on vacation – the Quest has you covered!

Did you know that SmartMoney magazine rated the 2012 Quest as the #1 recommended vehicle for family haulers? The Quest was chosen for this distinction due to its powerful V6, a 260-hp “powerplant” it shares with Infiniti’s EX, FX, and JX models. SmartMoney also gave a nod to Quest’s continuously variable transmission (CVT), which provides a quiet drive and excellent fuel economy. The 2012 Nissan Quest’s impressive interior and unexpected bonuses like an available backup camera and keyless entry system were mentioned in the analysis as well.

The MSRP of the 2012 Nissan Quest is nearly 8% lower than the average MSRPs of its closest competitor vehicles:  the Toyota Sienna, the Chrysler Town & Country Touring, and the Honda Odyssey. As with any vehicle, gas mileage varies with usage, weight and weather/road conditions, but the 2012 Quest gets slightly better fuel economy with city driving than others in its class. Owners rave about the storage capacity – some call it vast – under the third seat, even when the seat is stored! The Quest also has more head room and leg room in the front and third seating areas, assuring more driver and passenger comfort.

The 2012 Nissan Quest has more than ample interior space for your family.

Patrick Olsen recently wrote about his trip to take his daughter to college. This was quite a journey, because he drove 1,500 miles round-trip from the Chicago suburbs to upstate New York in a packed-to-the-gills 2012 Nissan Quest! He previously had the opportunity to travel in a Ford Flex crossover, so he was able to compare the two. One of the major accolades Olsen gave the Quest was for comfortable seating for both the driver and all passengers. Also, he compliments the storage under the floor in the rear, the excellent visibility for the driver even though the car was completely packed, and the engine power despite the added weight!

The 2012 Quest received the top safety rating of “good.” In addition to providing standard front-wheel drive, all-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, high-intensity-discharge headlights, a backup camera and a blind spot monitoring system, the Quest also has front and side-impact airbags and curtain airbags in all three rows of seating. Unlike the competition, the Quest offers front and rear height adjustable seat belts and vehicle security and immobilizer systems.

BreAnn Ahara, 2012 Nissan Quest owner and mother of two, said:

“There are three sets of lower latch anchors in the 2012 Quest, with two sets in the second row and a third set in the third row…Both my rear- and forward-facing car seats fit well in the second row. My husband and I also were able to fit our forward-facing convertible in the third row. A booster seat would easily fit into any of the rear seats.

Here’s what some of the professionals say about the 2012 Nissan Quest:

“The newest and latest Nissan Quest…is the most competitive model yet.  Its bold styling, interior refinement and smooth V6/continuously variable transmission (CVT) place it firmly in the discussion among the leaders of the pack:  the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna.” – Edmunds

“It’s a minivan…if you’re a parent it can make life easier.  And that is something to smile about.”  – Road and Track

“Nissan’s ubiquitous 3.5-liter V6 provides ample power in all situations…” – Consumer Guide

 “Passing slower traffic on the highway is made easier thanks to quick reactions from the throttle and transmission, while there are advantages in fuel efficiency as well.” – Edmunds

“Quest’s tight turning radius aids close-quarters maneuverability.  Steering is responsive and has a solid, weighted feel.  Braking action is firm and smooth.” – Consumer Guide

“The Quest’s rock-solid new structure yields a wonderfully boom-free cabin as well as reasonably tidy handling, and the electrohydraulic speed-sensitive steering has positive on-center feel with a natural buildup in effort as one turns the wheel.  Smooth transitions are easy in the Quest, and that’s not something we say about every family box out there.” – Car and Driver

2012 Nissan Quest owners, however, have the most to say about their vehicle:

“The cargo area behind the rear seat is massive!”

“Interior is outstanding; styling is unique, rear storage bin is huge, ride and handling is great, decent gas mileage”

“The 2012 Nissan Quest SL is the best driving van I have owned, interior is beautiful, the kids love the DVD screen that drops down from the ceiling with the push of a button…fun to drive crossover feel with all the space needed for the kids and their stuff.  You have to drive this!”

“A great vehicle through and through.  I love the CVT on the Quest – the CVT is quiet and extremely smooth.  The interior is just unbelievable for a minivan.  It basically is a carbon copy of the Infiniti’s interior design.  Favorite features are CVT, power lift gate, simple fold flat seats.”

Many crossover vehicles, such as the Chevy Traverse, offer similar features to drivers. However, most crossover vehicles don’t provide the physical space necessary to transport up to seven people at a time, and still have some storage space! The 2012 Nissan Quest can transport up to seven people at a time with no drawbacks whatsoever. We know that you will want to come on over and take a look for yourself.
