Recently bought a used 2010 Q56 with 10K miles on it. It is basically brand new. The 2011 is awesome but the older model now is a great buy if interested. Great comfort, technology options, fun to drive, solid SUV for my 2 boys and all their friends too. The Q56 was $10K-$15K cheaper than the Cadillac and Sequoia at 35K+ miles. The Q56 was super close in bling, comfort, technology, performance and gas mileage. The 2nd row buckets and 3rd row bench is much better than the Caddy. If you are looking for a great SUV that in my opinion equals GM, Toyota, Lexus but costs much less check this SUV out.
Bought this vehicle after owning a Rav4.Wanted a bigger and safer ride for my 2 boys and I found it on this one. The captain's chair plus the DVD make the ride for them so comfortable and smooth for myself.To much tech and luxury for the prize compare to other SUV's out there and with the powerful engine all I need next to buy is a boat and I'm set. Owned Toyotas for my whole life but this is definitely the best buy I ever made.Maybe in a year or two I will trade it for the new 2011 out there 'cause I really love these vehicle for the prize I ended up paying.
I have always owned sports cars and this is my first SUV due to the fact I now have 3 kids, 2 car seats and a booster seat. I am very picky when it comes to cars and I test drove every large luxury SUV on the market, Escalade, Denai, Sequoia, etc... I wanted something luxury on the inside, that could haul lots of people and gear, plus I like AWD for safety and wanted something I could go off road with that actually has a locking differential with true 4x4 high and low. This truck has it all, it's rugged off road, can tow 9000 lbs, crazy technology and luxury and being my first SUV this thing handles and rides better that any large luxury SUV. This truck is the best kept secret out there!
The seating in this SUV is awesome. We like the 3nd row middle seat that folds down to let the kids in the back. With 4 kids and grandma it is extremely comfortable. We looked at the Mercedes GL, Audi, and Sequoia and found this truck a much better deal and a much nicer ride and comfort. The electronics are great.
Replaced 2006 QX56 with 2010. Love the improvement in electronics. To us it is perfect in terms of size - MB, BMW and Audi were smaller; we often sit 5-7 people plus all the stuff for the trips in addition to getting kids to the games w all their gear. Luxury/ride is the same as with MB w extra space and w/o extra $$$ for all options. Only downside - No diesel. Overall - excellent buy and no complaints.
