:eek:

A Mini-Van.... Called my buddy and told him and it took me three minutes to get him to stop laughing..

We test drove every SUV under the planet, I fell in love with the Yukon Denali, but it was a gas guzzler and too huge for my wife to drive so, we tried all the Nissan vehicles.... (I really like Nissans).

We fell in love with the Nissan Quest....

I have to say it is awesome... all the seats fold in to the floor.....

A 300 Watt Bose Stereo.... 10 inch DVD Screen with 5.1 dolby

Navigation... tells you your air pressure.... the controls are wild... I love it.

I can fit the bike in the car..... too... no trailer and still have room for four people.

:clap:

Congatulations on your new car! :smilebig:
Not a big fan of mini vans myself, but that one looks decent :) Nice to be able to fit the bike in the cage, and still have room for people! We don't get Nissans like that here in Norway. Is it built in the US?

Yeah it has a plant here in the US and was assembled here....

I always told my wife I hated Mini Vans... but we fell in love with it...

Thanks for the Congrats

You're not kidding about the gas guzzling SUVs. My Durangopig only gets 11 mph city, and 17 mph hwy. It does tow my trailer to the track very nicely though. The new Nissan does look nice, have fun. :)

I felt the same way, but I ended up getting a Town & Country. It's a dream getting the kids around compared to my extended cab pickup. I tell everyone my 954 offsets the mini-van factor. Thing does great in the snow,too.

I agree...nice vehicle. :thumb: Nissan did a very nice job redesigning their mini-van. They look nice too and not bland & bulbous like some others I've seen. Best of luck with it! :D

I agree with Booth, much better than an SUV. A friend of mine used an Aerostar to drive around the country racing as a privateer, if that helps. :D

Of all the minivans to get, IMO, the Quests are the best. They look cool (nice lines), have a ton of features, etc, etc.

Nissans are great cars too. I've had a Nissan Frontier (CC, LB) for a while now and can't be happier with it.

Congrats man.

Just want to update on the car...

Went to Florida with my wife...

From Valparaiso IN... (more or less Chicago) to St. Pete. Middle of the State West Coast of Florida we made in 14 hours and 47 minutes door to door (almost 1200 miles) and that include three fuel stops... on average got 23.4 miles per gallon.... and it was an awesome trip there...

Ready for this.... Average speed.... this includes the stops and driving through St. Pete and also gas stops was 82.3 miles per hour


We drove on X-mas day almost no cops and no cars on the Interstate

DEPO :eyebrows:
