We bought our QX60 2 months ago and have truly enjoyed this car. This is the perfect travel vehicle...very comfortable on our frequent 720 mile round trips to our second home. We really love this car after an accident on the interstate yesterday with an 18 wheeler. The tractor trailer lost control when the driver locked his brakes and he slid sideways into us at 60 MPH. My husband said the Infiniti was steady, rock solid and he was able to maintain control until we got away from the tractor trailer,and come to a safe stop. The whole right side of the QX60 will need to be replaced, but we are all OK. Love my QX60!
Three years ago, my wife and I were looking for a premium/luxury three-row crossover to help avoid the minivan stigma. We cross-shopped the QX60 and the Acura MDX heavily, but in the end, the Infiniti was more family-friendly, felt more upscale for the price, and had a far better dealer experience. As we approach the end of our lease, our opinion hasn't changed much. The QX60 is still a nice, upscale, family-friendly vehicle, and a great value when you consider real-world selling prices. Being able to tilt the second row with a car seat attached to get to the third row is invaluable for anyone with three children in car seats - I'm shocked that it's still the only luxury crossover on the market with this feature. That said, the infotainment and overall interior are definitely looking dated - Infiniti made some updates to both in 2017, but nothing has changed significantly. We still mostly have the M interior from a decade ago. We still have ugly, yellow, halogen interior lighting on a $50,000 luxury vehicle. We still have Nissan buttons everywhere. For those cross-shopping something like the XC90 or even the CX-9, the interior may come off as a bit of a hard sell during a test drive. It's only when you take the QX60 on a long drive with multiple kids in the car that you can appreciate how quiet and comfortable the interior is, especially on the highway. It's why we still have the QX60 our our short list for our next crossover - and that really says it all. Pros: - Extremely quiet and smooth, particularly on highways - Leases much better than its MSRP suggests - Second row can move for third row access even with a child seat installed - Excellent third row that is usable by adults (at least for short trips) - Cost to own/lease should be low - you can use Nissan dealers for scheduled maintenance at a lower price Cons: - Dated interior design and infotainment system - City/mixed gas mileage isn't great - we never got close to the EPA average (this has been improved in the 2017 refresh) - Headlights are weak (this has not changed in the refreshes, even though they look better) - Slightly more jarring than expected on potholes given the class of vehicle - Nissan-esque packaging of options (a hands-free liftgate requires a $7,500 package? Come on...)
two years into my ownership, the car is performing as good as I expected, if not better. My son is currently driving this car while he's trying to replace his own Audi S8. He loves it so much that he is planning to buy the 2018 QX50; unfortunately the roll-out has been pushed back one year to 2019. Anyway, we love this car. good feature: heated seats not too good: A/C radio control is confusing and not well thought out (we don't have the navigation package)
Owned for less than a month, loving it so far. Roomy inside and stylish on the outside. I researched for 4-5 months before deciding on QX60. The other consideration was Acura MDX 2016. I test drove both for about 2 hours in multiple visits and finally decided on QX60. Things I did not like in Acura MDX: - Third row seating is not as comfortable as QX60 - The 9-speed transmission is an overkill - it shifts really hard in the traffic and kind of overkill - The interior felt not as luxury as QX60 Things I like about QX60 - Very comfortable ride, sports mode for the time when you want to a bit more acceleration and road feel - Comfortable third row seating - Luxurious interior - Less price for the comparable options on MDX - 360 degree camera with birds eye view is really good Things I wished worked better - the back wiper is not rain sensing - lots of things in the navigation and phone controls cannot be operated when car is in motion even by the front passenger - the thigh support is less than Odyssey and MDX - MPG is not that great, I get about 17.5-18.0 with premium fuel
After almost 5 years of owning a minivan (which we loved), our family has happily returned to an SUV. I thought I'd miss the creature comforts of a minivan, such as its sliding doors and the full 3 rows. But, I'm enjoying the driving experience in our new 2015 QX60 far more. This crossover is functional, has a plethora of safety equipment and gives you at least a taste of the Infiniti driving experience (we have a 96 I 30 that still runs like very well).The interior is very functional, but practical and is pretty intuitive. Despite the clamping about the CVT transmission, ours has been pretty smooth so far. I LOVE all of the safety features and technology and I am already spoiled to the multi view cameras. All in all, I am pleased with the vehicle. It offers good quality for the cost and my minivan is slowly but surely becoming a find but distant memory. My line gripe is gas mileage. The QX69 is a bit thirstier than the Odyssey.
