2004 INFINITI QX56 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Piece of junk. Brake judder with brake replacement plus brake failure times 2. Dealer unable to fix. Requires two trips to have anything fixed. Replaced door lock relay and windshield washer motor. Recalled for fire hazard from trailer light socket. Dealer refuses to fix rear window spray nozzle. Luckily able to avoid 2 crashes when brakes failed. Shakes, rattles and rolls. Drives like a tank. Steering wheel will not come back into place every time. A/C controls are terrible. Gas guzzler.


Best Features

Airbags and side airbags. Will probably need them if brakes continue to fail


Worst Features

Start over from scratch

2004 INFINITI QX56 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is without a doubt the worst vehicle that I have ever owned. I am 55 and trade every 2 years. I traded out of a Lexus LX470 into the Infiniti QX56. In the first 20,000 miles the brakes failed 4 times. The rotors replaced & resurfaced 3 times. The ABS and skid control malfunction almost killing me. It is a noisy, rough piece of junk. Traded it today for an 07 Escalade. WHAT A RELIEF! The Cadillac is far superior in ride, quality, and technology. Not to mention fuel economy. The weird noises, parts falling off and brake failures on the QX are almost laughable. A true GARBAGE TRUCK!


Best Features

The tiny brake rotors that warp and shake every 5,000 miles. The clueless dealers.


Worst Features

Drop all of them from a plane over iraq.

2004 INFINITI QX56 4WD 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

After a disappointing Escalade ownership experience, gave the Japanese Mfrs. a try. The QX56 won us over with their features, gizmos, and inventive seats. The test drive did not reveal some immediate issues we discovered on our fist trip: the truck rides hard, even on highway, had to reduce tire pressure to make it acceptable. The road disturbances excite the truck body which resonates the interior with an uncomfortable sound. (shoulda' used thicker steel) The overhead console rattled (had replaced). The brakes replaced 3 times - never admitted that they undersized the rotors. Temp. controls are counter-intuitive. Seats are flat w/ little side & head support - Nissan Armada's are better!


Best Features

Back-up Camera, Power Lift Gate, Captains Seats


Worst Features

1. Get some comfy seats for the 1st 2 rows. More cushion, side support and a usable headrest. (test-drive Caddy or BMW for ideas) - offer current owners option to upgrade to better seats 2.Change the logic of the Temp. Controls, like you DID in the Nissan! - Up/Dn for temp, rotate for fan speed.

2004 INFINITI QX56 Rwd 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Have owned Hummer, Suburban, and custome vans. This QX 56 gets better mileage, 21 mph at 70 mph and its features are topped by no one.Love the laser controlled cruise control. I'll never have to use my brakes again in traffic. The QX 56 does it for us


Best Features

Laser Cruise Control.Auto roll down of windows when unlock, lets Florida heat out.Rear View Camera when backing up. Navigation system easy to learn and use


Worst Features

Solar power in Sun roof to VENT HE CAR. Similar to what AUDI has.
