I've got to say that I'm impressed with
the TRUCK so far. Compared to our 1988
Toyota Land Cruise and our 1999 Ford
Expedition-which we still own, the QX-56
is leaps and bounds ahead in terms of
sophistication, quality, power, and
comfort. That being said, the QX-56 is
still a truck albeit a very refined,
heavy and powerful one. This car will be
my wife's daily driver which she will
use to haul our kids around to their
activities and our weekly drives to
Tahoe once the snow starts falling.
HID lights, seat comfort(all 3 rows),
ENGINE HP(Burly!!!!), visiblity, Bose
sound system, overall handling and
responsiveness, selectable 4WD (2w,
auto, 4high, 4low), back-up camera,
Intelligent Cruise Control, we like
everything so far!
Need back lighted steering wheel
controls for Cruise Control &
Stereo-difficult to see at night without
turning on the map lights, auto folding
mirrors, A/C controls not intuitive.
We were on our way to see an used LX
and decided to stop by this inf.
dealer just to take a quick look at the
new QX since we are far away from the
dealer and hadn't got a chance to see
it. The next thing we know, our year-
long search for a SUV ended there two
hours later; we left the dealer with a
piece of signed paper in hands. We
have owned it for three months now and
had a 1200 miles trip with six
peopke inside (nobody complained).
Many good things have been said
already, not need to repeat. Just want
to say that before this QX we had a
van, me and my husband often faught
for our other car, a BMW; but
now any of us will be happy to take the
quiet drive at high speed. back up

(makes a 5 hrs drive like a piece of
cake). auto-lift back door. easiest
access to the third row among all the
SUVs we have seen.
low gas milage. larger cargo space.
side mirrors should be included in the
memory and be auto foldable. The DVD
player should be positioned near the
second row, so DVDs can be loaded by
the viewers. Better GPS system with
touch screen function.
with touch-screen function.
Had initial quality problems after getting the car:
Replacement of map bezel. Steering wheel does
not extend every time I get in the car and put key in
ignition. Dealer is unable to find problem so I have
to live with it. Radio antenna on rear window was
broken, If you hold the cruise control lever up for a
couple seconds the car lags and then a few seconds
later races from 60 to 90 before it can be stopped.
Dealer says they are aware of this and can do
nothing about it.
I like the performance, handling, power and
comfort very much. I had 2 Lexus' before this and
the service just is not up to par with what I am used
to. Hope they improve.
Seats, size, power, handling.
Initial quality problems suggest they need to do
some betterr QC at the factory.
The QX-56 is a great looking SUV. The
build quality is very poor. The basic
structure of the vehicle is
flawed.Sqeaks and rattles are abundant.
The roof panel will "tin can" if a
single window is opened at speeds above
60 mph. Window regulators have failed
(2),drivers seat has failed,overhead
console has fallen down. The total
enjoyment of what should have been a
great SUV has been lost. Dealer was
not able to fix due to a lack of parts.
Nissan went to production without a
robust supply of service parts
resulting in 5 months of wait time
Higher quality interior parts needed.
Build quality needs major review. Did
Nissan follow AIAG guidlines? Must have
a squeak and rattle team to address the
My wife and I have owned 3 surburbans,
so we decided to step up into a
differnt design. We have enjoyed this
suv as much as the surburbans. There
is a lot more leg room in the middle
row and third row of seats. you do
give up storage space. Overall I would
rate this and recommend the suv to
