Exciting, it is not. BUT the QX60 does everything smoothly and very well. Perhaps I am alone, but I really like the CVT in this vehicle. I waited for the 2017 model, which upgraded the HP +30, the Torque +20 and slightly improved the handling.. Adult passengers love the rear seat. This entire class of SUVs is so extremely competitive, it is hard to go wrong with any of them. I took it easy on the options and ended up with a sticker price of $53,000. Shop different Infiniti dealers for lease pricing.
Bought this car a month ago, replacing my 2013 Infiniti JX35. Better power, smoother ride, quieter ride, dark carpets instead of beige a real advantage, a great ride. Is it good for off road, I'll never know, or will I care! Is it a great looking, great driving ride, absolutely! A big improvement over 2013 model Infiniti! Looked at Acura, Cadillac, Mazda, Lexus, and I was drawn back to Infiniti, so glad I was!
This vehicle has major electrical problems! The screen goes completely black and nothing works, the safety features fail when driving. The only way to fix the electrical failures is to restart the QX60. This is not always possible when you are driving. All I have heard from the dealer is "Corporate is aware of the problems." I have video of these problems. It will stall right after starting. I have also contacted the NTSB over the headlights in this vehicle. They have such a poor range it is dangerous.
This car has a load of issues. We have put 3500 miles on it and have been to the dealer twice already. The bluetooth cuts in and out. The phone feature fails to place calls for periods of time. The sunroof leaks. The middle row seat vibrates. Driving down roads as smooth as silk the middle row seat will vibrate. Our boys refuse to sit in the seat. It is unusable. So much for a 3rd row vehicle. The dealer says all the QX60s have that "feature". When backing up the display has gone completely dark. No camera, no audio controls. Only way to fix is to restart the car. We purchased this car with the expectation that it would last for many years. I don't see this car making it through spring. We have spent a lot of money for a well below average car and are considering trading it in and cutting our losses. Infiniti case #25643554. I have videos of all the issues listed above and will post them on YouTube. Hopefully this will save others from making the same mistake.
We have had a large number of cars over the years of varied makes and models and I have to say this has been the worse one ever. The vehicle drives so poorly that none of the 5 drivers in our home want to "get stuck with the Infiniti". It has poor acceleration from and stop, and worse when entering a highway or passing. To maintain speed the driver must constantly be pressing on the gas pedal as the car gains little to no momentum. It has the same exact instruments as a Nissan Altima, at about 3x the cost. The brake pedal will travel almost to the floor at times. Sport mode makes little to no difference, the car drives and acts like the old go karts we all used at amusement parks. We tried to bring this sad vehicle back and were offered almost 12000 less then we paid as we were told they have a poor resale value. I guess we all make mistakes but if you can avoid this one you will be happier.
