2011 Infiniti M56: Clear Warning

July 25, 2011

As you'd expect from a vehicle in this price range, our M56 has a trip computer that allows you to scroll through various screens so you can monitor things like exterior temperature and average miles per gallon.

One thing I noticed this weekend is that when the tank is almost empty, the trip computer defaults to a "Distance to Empty" display, regardless of what screen you had it on originally.

Some might argue that this setup just gives you an excuse to procrastinate, but I appreciated the constant and very explicit reminder. Of course, if you're low on gas and your vehicle has a trip computer, you'd likely check your distance to empty anyway. But I like the fact that the M56 saves you that extra step.
