Pros Comfortable ride, powerful engine, roomy especially 2nd and 3rd row, DVD Nav and rear-view camera is standard,
Cons Brakes are fair, heating and air control knobs,
Summary Overall, this is a great SUV. It pulls my 21ft. boat with ease, and the four wheel drive works well in snow. This engine is powerful and very quick (0-60 in 7.2 seconds, which is unbelievable for a vehicle this size). Also, the rear-view camera is my favorite feature because it makes it so much easier to park. Also, Infiniti service is excellent. I would highly recommend this vehicle for long distance traveling with a family or using it for trailoring.
Pros Great ride - quiet and comfortable... powerful engine.
Cons gas mileage
Summary This monster has been an absolutely terrific vehicle. It can hold/haul anything with its cavernous interior (tired of not being able to pickup that new piece of furniture?) and powerful V8. The build quality is very high (I've had no problems with my 2004) and I simply love all the gadgetry in this thing (laser cruise control, great stereo, Sat-Nav, rear view camera, etc.). Highly recommend this thing if you don't mind getting ~17mpg.
"QX56 TANK is Awesome"on by sajjid
Pros QX56 Awesome Awesome Awesome
Cons QX56 Gas Mileage
Summary I traded my 2003 Lexus LX470 and bought this QX56 Tank back in 2004. My Tank is fully loaded with 4 wheel drive which was the only option besides the DVD Player which I got too. I am very happy with this vehicle, I have 33,000 miles on it and I usually like to trade vehicles after 30k miles but this I would like to keep for as long as I can. I highly recommend this vehicle. The Infiniti Service department is surpisingly very good. I feel that they are better equipped and are easier to work with than Mercedes or BMW. Lexus is good but not as helpful as Infiniti surprisingly.
I have not had any trouble from this vehicle, I have all the scheduled maintenance performed by the dealer. Awesome. I do not work for Nissan or and Automobile dealer.
Pros Luxury, handles like a small car, back up camera, sensors,and much more!
Cons Mileage and the way people with hybrids look at you when roll past them.
Summary I have two cars and and this is by far my favorite. It is the envy of many of my friends and I have never had a major problem with it. The thing that happened was when I first bought it, it had been sitting on the lot for a while so for some reason the tires were at the proper pressure but had a flat spot in them. So I took back to the dealer and they replaced all the tires for free and gave me a loaner car for the day with free gas! Great car. My advice is to buy buy buy.
"Pure Comfort"on by Marsh68
Pros Comfort, power, and suprisingly the handling. Interior size, motorized rear hatch, rear camera, ergonomics
Cons Fuel mileage, Nav screen could be better
Summary It's hard to find something negative to say about this vehicle. If you think you're getting the huge, comfortable vehicle and hoping for fuel economy, you're an idiot. All I read on other forums is people complaining about the fuel mileage. IT'S 5300+ LBS, 320 HP, CARRIES 6 COMFORTABLY, AND WILL TOW 10,000 LBS!!! It's not going to get 30 mpg! With that said, you'll be hard pressed to find any major flaws. The only vehicle I tested that even comes close is the Mercedes GL450. It's 10-20k more. If your looking for a large SUV in the 50k range, there's no comparison.
