Vehicle

2004 Infiniti QX56 Rwd 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This car has lot of flaws and it is painful to pay so much money and do not get reliability. It has been in shop many times for AC, brakes, heater, door locks. The engine makes grinding noise in spite of using super unleaded fuel.


Best Features

Power and high platform.


Worst Features

Aesthetics, style reliability.

Vehicle

2004 Infiniti QX56 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The rotors were warped (thin, no good for vehicle wt.) - 3 dealer trips before they replaced it ("manuf. defect") in all - y not issue recall? The steering never returns 2 position, the flaps on the back of 2nd row won't stay anymore (Velcro wore out after 12 mo.), cumbersome mech. 2 fold 2nd row- doesn't always work, lukewarm not heated front seats, very poor quality build, rear door auto lift problem, 2 tires wore out at 24K(cheap), space behind 3rd seat not useful like Expedition., oil change at non-dealer and screen reminder never goes away - tire pressure gauge and hand break fault - dealer had 2 fix - manuf. defect - one tire leaked air from valve, made in Japan, not true luxury vehicle.


Best Features

excellent Nav. system, Bose music system is good (Ford Exp. is better at higher vol.), trim is nice


Worst Features

Folks at infinity need to learn from Europeans what true luxury means. Unhappy that they would let people keep having brake problems/rotor problems/alignment/vibration but not issue recall 4 all vehicles to replace the warped rotors -just shows what their customer commitment is - A shame- lawsuit?

Review

Great quality. Unique vehicle that gets great looks on the street and around the block. Great to drive, and great features explained in the next segment.


Best Features

Best feature is radar that slows the vehicle or stops it if need be, or can raise the speed again. Rear view monitor and rear sound alarm are each invaluable. Great sound system,easy to use in truck DVD player, and excellent big truck handling. Overall, a special vehicle that not everyone sees.


Worst Features

Could use remote starter as standard,snd in spite of vehicle size, everyone could wish for better mileage. Only additional issues revolve around simplifying truck knobs and controls.

Review

I love my QX56. I compared Escalde, Denali, Lexus, Toyota, Armada and others. The QX56 was by for the best equipped, best warranty and the best value at $50,000. I will trade it in for another QX56 in 2008 no matter what the price gas goes to.


Best Features

Roomy, rides and handles great, auto liftgate.


Worst Features

Headlight switch on turn signal moves without you knowing it. Radio and AC display.

Review

Piece of junk. Brake judder with brake replacement plus brake failure times 2. Dealer unable to fix. Requires two trips to have anything fixed. Replaced door lock relay and windshield washer motor. Recalled for fire hazard from trailer light socket. Dealer refuses to fix rear window spray nozzle. Luckily able to avoid 2 crashes when brakes failed. Shakes, rattles and rolls. Drives like a tank. Steering wheel will not come back into place every time. A/C controls are terrible. Gas guzzler.


Best Features

Airbags and side airbags. Will probably need them if brakes continue to fail


Worst Features

Start over from scratch
