2005 Infiniti QX56 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

very nice lux suv...great size and comfort. if you are looking from a great family hauler and can handle the 12mpg than choose this. the qx is loaded with several things other brands are just starting to do...a great example is the rearview camera which cadillac/gm/others dont do


Best Features

favorite feature about this vehicle is the size of the 2nd and 3rd row. 2nd row has prob more room the 1st. the 3rd row can actually hold 2 maybe 3 decent sized adults.


Worst Features

only knocks on this vehicle is the use of alot of plastic and a lot of rattle from the overhead storage bins.

Review

This vehicle was purchased new in March 2005. My family and I had nothing but problems with this vehicle. We had many engine issues that Santa Monica Infiniti repaired many times and finally my family decided to work with an attorney since this car had so many repairs and many recurring problems and we believed it qualified for remedies through the lemon law. Through persistence and working closely with our attorney Infiniti finally had to buy the car back and give us monetary remedy. We then bought a 2007 Escalade ESV to replace this unsatisfying beast. Infiniti gave us the money in February 2008 after the lemon law buyback.


Best Features

Easy to use interior controls.


Worst Features

Infiniti should Improve quality and workmanship so this carries the great reputation of Japanese automobiles.

Review

I bought it in 2007 and since then have had to many bugs in the car like, backup camera failure, seat belt tensioner replacements, airbag light blinking,air pressure leveler failing, brake problems, rear hatch opening by its self, front axle joints making noises, tire air valves failing and so on. I spent like over 5000 big ones already on a car less than 5 years old.


Best Features

Otherwise its fun too drive, sound system rocks, lots of space and a comfortable ride.


Worst Features

I hope they worked out all these bugs in the newer models

Review

Most of the time, the QX56 has felt very smooth on the road and has been extremely comfortable on long hauls to Mammoth. Comfort is great, but still a body on frame truck. Roomy all around. Great 2nd row - limo- like room. Same height and width, but the extra 8" length over the Yukon are surprisingly noticeable. The kids love it room for them, friends, and groceries. Tows like a champ, very comfortable on long trips. The 4wd system is great. No problems in 4 feet of snow or in light off-roading. Having a 4x4 lo range also sold us on this beast. After one year and 20k miles we are very happy. Currently 95k and counting.


Best Features

Drives nicely. Smooth ride on the open road. Good power. Roomy everywhere. Second row is great for passengers. Very comfortable. DVD is great. Nav. Many great features. Power lift gate. Rear back-up camera is amazingly useful. Wish I had it in my other cars.


Worst Features

The 06 model offers more creature comfort features. Blue tooth, turn signal mirrors. The 08 has a big redesign which is leaps ahead of the 04-07 range. We will likely buy a 2010 Qx56 next.
