Loved my qx4!

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Infiniti QX4 4dr SUV 4WD

I purchased my 1998 infiniti qx4 new replacing my 1993 pathfinder. The qx4 is light years nicer than the pathfinder! Qx4 is the most reliable, comfortable and trouble free vehicle ever! Bose stereo rocks! Scheduled maintenance and a small repair here and there in the 167,000 miles I drove it! Michelin xlt 100,000 mi. All weather SUV tires are awesome on qx4! So disappointed infiniti discontinued it! Just traded for a BMW x5 -- it was time -- although qx4 is still running beautifully and everything works perfectly! Amazing in all aspects! If you adhere to regular service schedule -- this is the best car ever! Love the 2wd/awd/4wd option - - never got stuck or slid on bad roads!




The best suv i have

This suv rocks! From the first day I bought it till now I have had no problems. Being in the field of fixing and driving cars daily this is by far the best suv I have driven. Yes the engine could have been more powerful, but the comfort and reliability of this vehicle outweighs this factor. The 4 wheel drive system is the best and most reliable it compares with Land Rover which is considered the best in 4 wheel drive system. If you want to be safe and and never get stuck this is the car for you.




Qx4 years later

Vehicle: 1998 Infiniti QX4 4dr SUV 4WD

Bought it used in 1998 with 40K miles. It is 2008 and it has 191,000 miles. I drive about 19K miles per year and it has been a great vehicle with the sunroof, Bose stereo and seat warmers. I started having problems about 3 years ago and rebuilt the transmission $2,500. I'm now looking at rebuilding again another $2500. The first transmission should have held up and now it is threatening to leave me stranded so I'm selling prior to keeping it with the high miles. Other problems included a bizzare rear-end problem that the dealer couldn't fix. Firestone finally fixed that, but the vehicle felt like it would roll or shake after an 18 wheeler prior to the fix. Perfect for a driver of less miles.




Most reliable suv ever

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Infiniti QX4 4dr SUV 4WD

Over 120,000 miles and not a single repair required. ZERO DOLLARS SPENT on repairs. I have changed my oil every 3,000-5,000 miles and the motor hums like it did the day I bought it. It's now 2007 and the body is looking dated compared to newer cars like the FX and Murano, but this is still a solid car. We have had several snow and ice storms and the 4-wheel drive makes me feel very secure when the wife/kids areout driving. While others were stuck inside, we were out enjoying the day.




A great car!

Vehicle: 1998 Infiniti QX4 4dr SUV 4WD

We purchased the car new and it's only been the repair shop once (besides oil changes and brake pads) and we didn't have to take it in. The Battery died and they came to the house and replaced it. This was when the car was six! Weíve owned Mercedes, BMWs, AUDIs before and during the time weíve owned this car but none have been as dependable. Itís eerily reliable! Only complaints are the Bose stereo isnít of German quality and itís not powerful like a German auto (you can tell when you are merging into busy freeways).




Best car

Best car I've ever owned. 92000 miles, no leaks rattles or squeaks. Only one warranty claim, ac covered completely. I'll buy another car from Infiniti.
