About Nissan Quest
The 2009 Nissan Quest achieves everything a minivan should: it seats seven people comfortably, has a flexible cargo compartment, and gets high gas mileage, all while looking good. It’s impossible to expect anything more from a minivan. Following a substantial redesign in 2007, the 2009 model receives just modest updates, including as automatic door locks and a new Tuscan Sun exterior paint color.
For 2009, the Quest is available in four models: the Quest 3.5, the Quest 3.5 S, the Quest 3.5 SL, and the Quest 3.5 SE, all of which cost $35,650. Each model is powered by a 3.5-liter, DOHC V-6 engine that produces 235 horsepower and is mated to a five-speed automated transmission as standard. The huge V-6 delivers enough of torque, allowing the massive Quest to accelerate and pass with confidence. The fuel efficiency is 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
The Quest is known for being one of the most spacious front-wheel-drive minivans on the market. The second and third rows of seats fold flat into the floor, revealing a spacious cargo compartment of 148.7 cubic feet. Third-row seats include automatically folding headrests and a spring assist to make tucking them away easier. The 2009 Nissan Quest handles admirably for a car of its size.
Although Nissan has cleaned up the most glaring areas of the interior, the Quest’s interior still falls short of its beautiful outside. The Quest has a cleaner, less uncomfortable appearance than previously, thanks to new front and rear end treatments, but the faux-wood trim inside and more classic shapes no longer look right with the sloping front and rear ends.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the minivan five stars for safety, as well as four stars for rollover resistance and “good” ratings for front and side protection from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Anti-lock brakes, front side and full-length curtain airbags, tire-pressure monitors, and active head restraints are standard on all 2009 Nissan Quests.
The Quest’s higher trim levels include a standard motorized sliding side door, a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, and XM Satellite Radio.
The 2009 Nissan Quest sports a divisive shape, but the interior has been homogenized. The Nissan 2009 Quest is one of those instant loves or instant dislikes when it comes to appearance, with a design that is so different from most minivans on the market. According to Cars.com, “the Quest appears to be one of those designs you either can’t get enough of or don’t understand how it got out of the factory.”
