Vehicle has performed well, and for a 2004 model, has some superior qualities, like rear view camera, and front radar that controls the vehicle speed while using cruise control. Plenty of size and comfort for any taste, it handles well in adverse Midwest weather, and for a large SUV earns respectable 16 mpg mileage. Overall I would seriously consider buying another version of this vehicle when I replace this one.
With nearly 25,000 miles per year, and most on cruise control on the highway my favorite feature is the radar that controls the ebb and flow of speed when traffic slows or speeds up in front of me. It is awesome!
Although I can easily navigate them now, the front controls for various vehicle functions are poorly conceived, and too often, seat belts in a luxury automobile/truck like the QX 56 do not properly pull back to their original location, but instead hang down and get stuck in the closing door.
