"WhenI was your age we didn'thave our own captain's chairs, air conditioning controls and headphone jacks.' Some say today's kids are spoiled. They've never trudged ten miles in the snow to get to school. Never worked the coal mines from sun up to sundown. And frankly, never had it hard enough to appreciate the comforts to which they have grown so accustomed. You, however, having spent your forma tive years in a wood-panelled station wagon, will appreciate the Nissan' Quest'" GXE for the uncommonly luxurious minivan that it is. You see, unlike other manufacturers who typically design from the outside and build their way in, we reversed the formula and worked our way out. The benefit becomes evident the minute you plant yourself in the driver's seat. Which adjusts electronically to a near infinite number of positions. We even gave the seat an inflat able lumbar mechanism for greater support in the lower back (an area parents tell us is easily aggravated). If you think we were innovative with the driver's seat, you should see what we've done with the other six. Slide open the side door and you will discover a second row of optional leather appointed captain's chairs plus a rear three seat bench mounted on QUEST TRAC, our flexible seating system that allows up to 24 different configurations. At this point, our engineers thought, "If we can design a minivan that feels like a car, why not a minivan that maneuvers like one?" So, after furnishing the Quest with an 8-speaker stereo system; power sunroof,t and cruise control, they equipped it with a power ful V6 engine, front-wheel drive and a stabiliz er bar that helps eliminate swaying motion. Of course, the best way to experience the Quest is to test-drive one. And feel free to bring the kids. If they don't want to come, gent ly remind them that "as long as you live under my roof, you'll do as I say." If you'd like additional information please call 1-800-NISSAN-3, ext. 245.
