Benefits of Driving a 2008 Nissan Quest Van

Minivans typically concentrate on practicality, safety, and reliability; Nissan's 2008 Quest stands apart from the crowd by virtue of its looks. The Quest's 235-horsepower V6 is one of the strongest powerplants in its class, and driving dynamics are definitely better than most of its competitors.

What's new for 2008?

Reintroduced in 2004 as Nissan's sole entry in the minivan market, the Quest undergoes few changes for 2008. On the base trim, an in-cabin filter is now standard as well as luggage roof rails. The S trim standard equipment was reshuffled a bit for 2008; rear back-up sonar is now included in the Driver's Package instead of being standard. On the SL trim, the headlights gain automatic on/off function, and audio controls are now mounted on the steering wheel, while the air conditioning system is upgraded to an automatic dual-zone setup. On the top of the line SE trim, Bluetooth is now standard equipment.

Model Strengths

  • Standout styling and flashy interior
  • plenty of power
  • long list of standard equipment.

If you are looking for a minivan with all the safety and people-moving practicality but with unique styling, then look no further than the 2008 Nissan Quest.

2008 Nissan Quest: What's New

Source: The Car Connection

2007 model shown

Nissan restyled its Quest minivan, outfitting it with a new instrument panel, a new center console, and revised exterior panels, including new front and rear treatments with a cleaner, less outré look than before.

For 2008, the Quest returns in essentially the same form as 2007. It continues to be powered by a 240-horsepower version of the same 3.5-liter, DOHC V-6 used in both the Maxima and Altima, tied to a standard five-speed automatic. The big V-6 provides ample torque, giving the large (seven-passenger/three-row) Quest confident acceleration and passing power.

Nissan says the Quest is one of the roomiest front-wheel-drive minivans in the market. The second- and third-row seats fold flat into the floor, creating a large 148.7-cubic-foot cargo area. This year, the third-row seat also gets automatically folding headrests and a spring assist that makes it easier to fold.

All Quests have anti-lock brakes, front and curtain airbags, and tire-pressure monitors as well as active head restraints. Side airbags are now standard on all Quests.

The 2008 Quest is offered in four well-equipped models - 3.5, 3.5S, 3.5SL, and 3.5SE. The S versions now can be ordered with rear parking assist; SL versions get a standard power sliding side door, rearview monitor, dual-zone climate control, and automatic headlights. The SE versions get Bluetooth and XM hardware standard, though the satellite radio subscription must be paid separately.

A 265-watt, ten-speaker audio system can be ordered, as can Bluetooth and 19-inch wheels and run-flat tires. The '08 Quest retains its signature Skyview fixed roof panels.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Nissan Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

7-year/100,000 mile limited warranty. Only Nissan models less than 6 years old and under 80,000 miles qualify for the Nissan Certified Pre-Owned program. The CARFAX® Vehicle History Report ensures your vehicle has a clean title history.
Age/Mileage Eligibility 6 model years or newer & less than 80,000 miles.
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection 167 point comprehensive Certified Pre-Owned Inspection and reconditioning. Inspection includes OEM service bulletins and recalls, diagnostic trouble codes, powertrain/chassis, body frame, road test, interior and body exterior.
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Yes for the duration of the 7 year/100,000 mile limited warranty from the original in-service date of the vehicle.
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty No/Yes with the purchase of the CPO Wrap Coverage at time of sale. Fee to transfer is estimated to be $50
Warranty Deductible $50 per claim
