What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Nissan Quest

Nissan Quest Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 4dr Minivan, ext. 260-horsepower 3.5L V6
CVT FWD
I was hoping for slightly better fuel economy, but for a 4500 lbs vehicle, I really shouldn't be complaining. In predominantly hilly suburban driving, I'm averaging a couple miles below the estimated city fuel economy number. On 100% hilly highway miles, I'm right about at or maybe 1 mpg above the estimated fuel economy. It would be nice to acheive better highway mpg, but I suppose that's the trade-off for having a torquey engine. You would think the CVT would improve things, and maybe in fact it is helping the poor fuel economy of the aging VQ engine design, but I also think the CVT transmission is a cost-cutting measure by Nissan. It would be nicer to have one of the 7 speed transmissions found in the Infiniti lineup. see full Nissan Quest review

Could be better, but then the van would have less power. Pick your poison. see full Nissan Quest review
