Nissan Quest Overview

The 2009 Nissan Quest has a polarizing shape, but the interior’s been normalized. With a design so different from most minivans on the market, the Nissan 2009 Quest is one of those instant loves or instant hates as far as looks are concerned. As Cars.com puts it, "The Quest seems like one of those designs you either can't get enough of or can't understand how it got out of the factory."

For the 2009 model year, the minivan comes to the dealer lot with very minimal nissan quest accessories changes, and the distinct possibility that this is the last year the vehicle will be produced The 2009 Nissan Quest offers plenty of power from a stop and doesn't stint on passing performance, either.
