After a disappointing Escalade ownership experience, gave the Japanese Mfrs. a try. The QX56 won us over with their features, gizmos, and inventive seats. The test drive did not reveal some immediate issues we discovered on our fist trip: the truck rides hard, even on highway, had to reduce tire pressure to make it acceptable. The road disturbances excite the truck body which resonates the interior with an uncomfortable sound. (shoulda' used thicker steel) The overhead console rattled (had replaced). The brakes replaced 3 times - never admitted that they undersized the rotors. Temp. controls are counter-intuitive. Seats are flat w/ little side & head support - Nissan Armada's are better!

1. Get some comfy seats for the 1st 2 rows. More cushion, side support and a usable headrest. (test-drive Caddy or BMW for ideas) - offer current owners option to upgrade to better seats 2.Change the logic of the Temp. Controls, like you DID in the Nissan! - Up/Dn for temp, rotate for fan speed.
