Still like it!

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti QX56 Rwd 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

Could not believe my wife still wanted this vehicle after the 04 we rented with the terrible brakes and all the bad reviews we read. A year and a half later - so far, so great. We really like this SUV. There is a little more rattling than we care for. Looking forward to getting the next redesigned model with all the bugs worked out.




So far soo good!!

We loved this vehicle from the first test drive. Rented a 2004 for extended test drive and it was terrible!! Brakes felt like we were driving on cobblestones. Took a chance and bought a 2005. We love it and have not had any problems. No other large SUV handles like this. Beats my Q45!!

The QX56 has all the others beat by a mile! Runs great, looks great, holds 8 people comfortably, or hauls 4x8 shhets of plywood. You name it. Easy seat conversion too. I most like (and have never seen) the Q's ability have a person sit in the second row, and NOT have his knees touch the seat in front. The best, (and best value for the money) auto, I've ever owned! Very satisfied!




Love the ride

I have taking 3 long trip with my new QX56 the gas miles are great I read that the QZ56 was the worst vehicles of 2005 I don't know what suv they drove or check out but it wasn't mine it rides it run and it performance great




My favorite truck ever

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti QX56 Rwd 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

I've driven luxury SUV's for years - this truck by far is my favorite. The second row legroom is comparable to an airplane seat in first class. The Navigation is system is the easiest one I've used to date. The truck has phenomenal pickup and has an unbelievably small turning radius for it's size. Parking's a breeze with the rear view camera and beeping alert. The interior is luxurious, yet understated. There is nothing "over- the-top" or flashy about this vehicle unlike many of it's comparable counterparts on the road today.




Stranded again

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti QX56 Rwd 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

My car is stuck in park again. First time, service mgr said it was a bad shifter. 2nd time my cell phone charger was blamed for blowing the fuse leaving me stranded in a parking lot at night. This is the third time I've been stranded. My cell phone charger was not even in the car. It is beginning to rattle too. I wish I'd never traded my Lexus.

I am also considering a qx56 2005 vs 2006. I saw some of you post today that you are waiting for the 2006's. The 2006's have just come in because I looked at one today. (I live in Houston) It still...

After reading all the reliability issues with QX56 on this board, I still decided to trade my 2002 Sequoia in and purchase a 2005 QX56 for $8,000 off MSRP. I learned that any 2005 QX56 built after Ma...

Funny story...My 2005 QX56 experiences this "memory lapse" from time to time, though I just put up with it, and manually adjust my seat & steering column when it happens. Right now, how...
