Best SUV for the $$$$

This is a luxury cruiseliner on wheels. I have 77K on this car in 3 years because we would rather drive in this machine. The only problem we had was they did not make the brakes powerful enough when they first produced it, but Infiniti stepped up in a big way and not only replaced the brakes, but also paid for all of my factory services for the first 30K miles in a gesture of goodwill. They literally sent me a check for over $500. Gotta love a company that stands behind their product. The kids love this thing and we have taken 2-3 hour trips with this thing with 7 adults and no complaints of discomfort. This vehicle is the ultimate in comfort.
V8 has tremendous power. It's as comfortable and easy to drive at 90 MPH as it is at 30 MPH. Nav system is awesome, the rear camera is the best, and the laser guided cruise control is nice if you learn how/when to use it. Good DVD system. Lots of convenient storage compartments.
The air vents have malfunctioned and needed to be replaced. Some of the other plastic parts are not the best quality and rattle occasionally, but the rattles never linger.
