This new SUV is a lesson in comfort and
style on the inside. But Infiniti is
still working out the 1st year
glitches. AFter a few months the SUV
shook violently every time brakes were
applied. The Infiniti service team
discovered the QX56 has the same exact
brake system as the G35! The brakes are
way too small for this heavy truck. Big
design flaw. Brakes had to be totally
replaced early on, but with the same
small system which is doomed to fail
again. Overall it is fun to drive,
handles remarkably well for such a big
SUV and is very comfortable. I just
suggest waiting until Infiniti gets the
kinks worked out.
The unique view on the navigation
screen is easy to use and follow.
Unlike others, you don't have to touch
the screen to use it--which means no
fingerprints on your map. 2nd row seats
flip forward easily. 3rd row passengers
can flip them forward, so they
are not trapped in back.
Lose the "map holder" trays on the very
front console. Too shallow to be
of any real use. Needs a bigger brake
system to control the weight. Passenger
door handles are place abnormally high
on the door and small kids cannot get
in by themselves. Looks good, not
