2014 Nissan Quest Overview

Is the 2014 Nissan Quest a Good Minivan?

The 2014 Nissan Quest is a decent minivan, but it does not stand out in the class. While it has one of the nicest interiors overall, its safety scores are subpar, its cargo capacity could be better, and some competitors offer more standard features.

Used 2014 Nissan Quest Performance and Interior

The Quest is powered by a 260-horsepower V6 engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This minivan maintains a comfortable ride while providing sufficient power in all driving situations, but the CVT transmission can create unwanted noise going up steep hills. Though rivals like the Mazda5 have sharper driving dynamics, the Quest has a tight turning radius and adequate steering. This Nissan gets 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway – an above-average rating. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is not available.

If you are looking for a high-quality minivan, the Quest is a good option. Its interior is filled with soft-touch materials and features woodgrain accents. The audio and climate controls are easy to use and sensibly arranged. The Quest seats seven on comfortable seats, but some minivans offer seating for eight and the ability to remove the second and third rows for added cargo space. The second-row captain’s chairs and third-row bench seat fold flat, and there are multiple storage compartments around the cabin. Nonetheless, large roof pillars limit rearward visibility, and models like the Honda Odyssey come with more standard features, including a rearview camera, power-adjustable front seats, and Bluetooth. The Quest has two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in its second row. The third row has one full LATCH system on the passenger-side seat and an upper tether anchor on the middle seat.

All models come with cloth seats, a four-speaker sound system, and push-button start. Some models come with leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, a USB port, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a navigation system, a rear-seat entertainment system, power-adjustable front seats, and a 13-speaker Bose audio system.

Should I Consider Another Used Quest?

The 2014 Quest is a part of a generation that started in 2011 and includes the 2016 model year. The 2014 model year saw no major changes, so you could opt for a 2013 Quest to keep a few extra dollars in your pocket. The 2015 model year added an updated infotainment system.

Which Used Nissan Quest Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Nissan Quest comes in four trims: S, SV, SL, and LE. The SV trim has the best value in the lineup. It comes standard with features likes a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and satellite radio.

Despite the Quest’s good reliability score for the class, you might consider a certified pre-owned model for added peace of mind. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

2014 Nissan Quest and Other Minivans to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Nissan Quest or 2014 Toyota Sienna?

The 2014 Toyota Sienna is a popular choice for minivan shoppers. Its bountiful cargo space and comfortable seating for up to eight occupants are two of the many reasons why it has a high ranking. It’s also the only minivan available with all-wheel drive, and it comes standard with tri-zone automatic climate control (a useful feature for long road trips). Unlike the Quest, there are no complaints about engine or road noise, and this Toyota gets better safety and reliability scores. The Sienna has higher ownership costs, but it’s the obvious choice.

Which Is Better: 2014 Nissan Quest or 2014 Honda Odyssey?

The 2014 Honda Odyssey comes with standard features that aren’t found in the Quest’s base model (or many other rivals’), including a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a USB port. Furthermore, this minivan has one of the best performances in the class – even better than the Mazda5’s. Its downfall is a low reliability score (two out of five), but that’s somewhat redeemed by its high safety scores. The Odyssey is more expensive than the Quest, but it's worth it.

Which Is Better: 2014 Nissan Quest or 2014 Ford Flex?

The 2014 Ford Flex is an affordable midsize SUV that should be on your radar when shopping for a minivan. It doesn’t hold as much cargo as the Quest, but it has adult-friendly seating for seven. The Flex also comes with a power-adjustable driver’s seat and voice recognition (not standard in the Quest). These vehicles get similar interior and reliability ratings, but the Flex has higher safety and performance scores. If you are looking for a low-key family hauler, the Flex is the way to go – and it won’t cost much more in the long run.
