Watch out for Mice!
By Don G. on
2007 Infiniti QX56 4dr SUV 4WD (5.6L 8cyl 5A)
Leased QX56 in June 07. Had Continental Tires on it and ride was noisey and rough. All the doors rattled and windows did the same. All the door hinges & strikers misaligned and had to be realigned. Gas mileage 11 in city 17 on highway, but expected. Interior exceptional but Nav is awful. Two voices and one you can't hardly understand. This is a 39 month lease with 45,000 mi.Recently just after starting vehicle the 4WD, SLIP, VDC, and ABS idiot lights came on! Took vehicle to dealer and their findings indicated that the sensor had an open circuit, they found wiring Harness damage to the L/F sensor. They claim wires were eaten by a mouse? Wire covered with a plastic cable? Want $300+ to fix!
Obviously the plush interior. Audio very good, ditto DVD. But, rides like a truck! Not anywhere like the 2010 just driven. Good powerful engine. Very SAFE vehicle.
Better fuel economy. Better Navigation system. Tighter all around body including doors and windows. Vehicle seems to produce more rattles and sounds as mileage increases. 39 month lease on this vehicle to long. 36 max allows to change to newer rather than put up with the Mouse stuff!
