Review

I own a Chevy and a Mecedes Benz. When I bought the QX-56, I thought I would be treated with the same intensity as I am with the Benz. Instead, I feel like I bought a Chevy. The truck, although pricey, is a terrible driving truck. Its balloon tires bounce down the road and the steering wheel jumps out of my hand over rougher road surfaces. Its dashboard is the most cumbersome I have ever come across. It is noisy and has many rattles. It only has 8,000 miles. I had problems with the front brakes at 3,000 miles. The dealer knew about it. The rotars were warped. They cut them instead of replacing. A Chevy dealer would cut. A benz dealer would replace


Favorite Features

Outside, the truck looks great


Suggested Improvements

Make the dash insruments easier to operate. Light the steering wheel controls for the radio and cruise control so they can be seen at night without turning on the courtesy lights. Start acting like a luxury car company and deal with your car issues like a luxury car company should!

Review

Since I bought this car it has been a house of pain Rattling is so bad you can never imagine. It has been to dealership 4 times still NO FIX. Dealer is a nice team but they cannot rebuild the whole car. Now less than a year new AC broke, Breaks are gone, Back spoiler broke and flew on Highway If you love engine, wait 'til it starts giving you a hissing snake noise. DVD/TV interrupt with Audio. Remote on TV does not work. I have lost my patience and ***PLEASE DO NOT BUY IT NO Matter which couple of things you may like in this vehicle **** OR wait till Infinity fixes it all Do not be impressed by NEW Buyers Comments, They do not know what they got into..

Review

This car has been a real disappointment. We love the look of the car and the overall comfort of the interior. BUT, We have had it in for service 4 times now, they charge us almost $600 each time for service, and with 20,000 miles they have had to fix the brakes 3 times, the dealer has even admitted that there is a brake problem with these cars and they do not know how to fix it except to keep replacing them every 5000 miles or so. The interior console that houses the fold up tv screen rattles like crazy, the automatic opening backdoor has had to been fixed twice. After having this car for 1.5 years I have had enough. I dont feel safe with these brakes and a 13 month child. Don't buy it


Favorite Features

The look of the car. Pretty good pick up. Comfortable inside.


Suggested Improvements

Rattles like crazy, they cant fix the brakes, this car needs some major work and should of never been sold in this condition. BOOOOO Infinty you are ruining your good name with this terrible car!

Review

Coming from reliable Toyota vehicles I never thought that buying a new luxury vehicle would be such a let down. I have had over 20 issues with my QX56! From small trim pieces falling off to the brake rotors being replaced twice, the ABS system failing, transmission lines being replaced. I just picked it up yesterday for the transmission issue & today it is still gushing fluid. I am unable to park in the garage because of it. This is the worst vehicle I have owned ever! Please reconsider your Infiniti purchases...Buyer Beware!


Suggested Improvements

Just make one that works!
