1999 INFINITI QX4 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

187000 mile and still going! The transmission is starting to shift hard from 1st to 2nd, but the engine remains strong! Only major maintenance: replaced rear springs and struts; timing belt.


Best Features

This is a go anywhere vehicle. I have taken it off road, in snow, through shallow creeks. Very dependable


Worst Features

The 1999 model is very underpowered and the front brakes rarely last longer than 12-15000 miles.

1999 INFINITI QX4 4dr SUV 4WD (1999.5)


Review

I've had this SUV for about 4 years. In that time we have had nearly no problems with it. The check engine light came on, we hooked it up to our OBDII reader and it came back as an O2 sensor (common problem). A week later we discovered that the muffler had rusted off. We replaced the muffler and the O2 sensor stopped giving us an error. Other than that, there have been ZERO problems - the most reliable car we own. Very comfortable riding vehicle, great for long trips, and the Bose sound system is phenomenal. I expect this thing to last another 100,000 miles at least - such excellent build quality from Nissan!


Best Features

Bose sound system, soooo comfortable to ride in for an SUV, nice 4WD on the fly switch, reliability.


Worst Features

Could use more power! They fixed this in later Pathfinders, but this one sometimes has trouble keeping up on steep hills on the highway. Other than that, no complaints!

Review

The QX4 is a great midsize SUV. It is attractive, well-built, and has been supremely reliable since I purchased it.


Best Features

Comfortable leather seats, well laid- out dashboard, modern styling.


Worst Features

More horsepower is needed! It is sluggish when you need quick acceleration.

Review

This is a very reliable car which is dramatically underpowered and gets poor gas mileage. The car is essentially an upgraded Nissan Pathfinder. Original price $37,000. Great looking with really nice interior. If you want one of these cars buy a newer model. Infiniti made some major changes to this model sometime after the 1999 model. Only buy a 1999 or earlier model if you can get a really great deal to make up for the lake of permformance and poor gas mileage. My 1998 Pontiac Bonneville gets 50% more gas mileage both on the freeway and in town. This is a poor freeway car as it has a limited range.


Best Features

Interior style and looks. Exterior looks. Construction quality


Worst Features

Increased gas mileage. More engine power. Higher gear ratio in 4th to increase gas mileage and reduce engine rpm's at freeway speeds. Or, install an overdrive gear in the transmission.
