No 2010 Nissan Quest, But Minivan Will Return

2009NissanQuest
If you saw the news that the Nissan Quest was going the way of other failed minivans like Hyundai’s Entourage and Ford’s Windstar, don’t believe it. Although Nissan is not producing a 2010 model year Quest, the company has told us it is fully entrenched in launching a completely new Quest that will be built in Japan.

The current Quest is built in Mississippi, but Nissan says no jobs will be lost to the switch in production location. Currently, there is a $3,000 cash back incentive on 2009 Quests good through Feb. 1, but only 85 show up in Cars.com’s national inventory, an extremely low number.

We could see the new design by the end of this year’s auto show season, but it still might be a year before it hits dealers as either a 2011 or 2012 model.

The Quest ended production in Mississippi last June. That's why numbers are so low.

THANK YOU NISSAN! Japanese spec minivans and mpv's are truely stellar. many are pushed to full capacity yet look stunning like Nissan's Elgrand, Toyota's Vellfire and Honda's JDM Odyssey. hopefully it will live up to those expectations.

Good riddance. The Quest was one of Nissan's worst quality and worst looking models.
Unfortunate considering just how good the Maxima and Altima are.
Hopefully it's replacement will be a rock-solid product that can run with the best of them.

The newer Quests were not Nissan's worst quality. You are thinking of the pre '07 models. I have owned an '07 since they came out and have not had a single problem.

thanks you
You will have to crawl very nice

I owned a 2004 Nissan Quest. Except for the wear & tear which is part of all cars as years go by, & until to this date I don't have a problem until now.It runs & drive well AS for the looks of it, it is more futuristic & that person who don't like the looks of he/she is an antique being. The fuel consumption depends on your driving habit is 22-23 mph. I just wonder if that person owned a Quest

Please inform me if & when the 2011-2012 Nissan Quest is available, I'm very satisfied with the services of my 2004. Thank you so much.

As someone who survived a horrific crash in our 2007 Quest this past summer, I am hoping the Quest returns soon. The saftey features kept my husband, mother, and self alive as well as both children with minimal injuries. The impact was on an interstate at about 60 mph... troopers expected fatalities. We want to purchase a replacement when the insurances have it all sorted out... maybe 2011 will be our year to do so.

Loved my 2004 Quest SE. It was built in the latter part of the year's run so they had worked out the kinks by then. Saved me and my family in a side impact crash. No injuries. Replaced it with a 2005 Quest SE which I still own. No complaints. Best mini-van available in my opinion. Waiting to see what 2011 will bring.

I have had a 2006 quest I bought in 2007. I have not once had any problems with my Van. Its the best in its class. Very good HP and everyone that rides in my van loves it over other minivans. Its also got a very sleek futuristic look and does not look like a soccer mom van.

I owned a 1994 quest and drove it for 7 years with no problems I said I would drive it til it died but it NEVER would. Next I bought a 2000 chevy venture and I have had it 7 years with no trouble. I am on the look out for a quest again and CANT WAIT TO FIND ONE !!!!!

I just found out there is no 2010 Quest available and as a past owner of a 240SX, I'm pretty disappointed as Nissan just lost a potential sale. My Sienna's lease is up soon and I was going to consider the Quest so it looks like I'll be taking my business elsewhere.

I bought a 2002 Nissan Quest in December 2009. I had been driving it for about two months and the little green warning light went on and wouldn"t go off. I took it back to the lot and the salesman came out and stuck a one foot cord under the dash. After 5 minutes the warning light went off.
The light was a warning that I should take the car in for a check up. I did that and the light indicated it needed an new emission "fixture." If I didn't get one the car would stop at some soon future date and I cuuld end up spending a bundle. The salesman knew that. He "fixed it temporarily." On top of that I will need a new timing belt very soon. I paid cash for the car and now I am really in a bind. Because I wasn't smart enough I got took. The ratings came out for the 2007 Nissan Quests were all perfect. The ratings for the 2002 Nissan Quests were that it was one of the worst cars made. This I found out after I drove the caar off the lot. That Is MY EXPERIENCE.
