QX56 4x4 Excellent Full Size SUV
By Jay Zar of Calif. on


2008 INFINITI QX56 4dr SUV (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Excellent full size SUV for a medium to large family that needs space and the ability to haul or tow weight. We pack a lot when we travel. We have been on icy roads, full snow storms, up to 1 foot of snowed in driveways, mud, dirt, rain... you name, we have done it with a load of 2 adults, 3 medium to large dogs, and one child. This car outperforms Ford Expeditions, GMC Yukon, Chevy Tahoe's, and others in the areas of braking, handling and overall feel. With a full load, of around 800 lbs, we average about 15.2 mpg. Just in town around 14.5 and mostly freeway with no load around 16.5 going about 70 mph. Our 2007 Acura MDX with a full load averaged only 14.5 mpg. We use regular fuel 87.

Best Features

Headlights, braking is supreme, 125ft for 60mph. Navigation, 4x4 low for deep snow, 4x4 high for icy roads. Sound system is great. Always lots of power. Very stable in turns and suspension, auto leveling ride is great. All in all, great car.

Worst Features

Buttons on dash should be closer to driver. Rear bench seat should be all one width, not smaller in the center. Should have space under the middle seat for storage. Maybe cylinder shut off for better fuel economy. More space under end seats in rear for storage.
