Walked in to look at a specific Buick Lacrosse we found on Cars.com. Asking price was fair for the car, and we liked it. Haggled for a few minutes over the value of my trade in, but got a fair deal. Happy with the Sales effort and the whole experience. Nice Manager made the deal work. Would highly recommend if they have something you are looking for.

I wanted big and comfortable. Shopped Lexus, Cadillac and Lincoln. The QX56 was cheaper than the Escalade, bigger than the GX470 and more reliable than the Navigator. It is a little odd looking from the outside, but looks great from the drivers seat. And oh what a drivers seat it is... Its like wearing new shoes WITH new socks. So comfortable. Passengers LOVE the second row seats. The 3rd row, like most, is better suited to smaller kids but I could sit back there for a 30 minute ride. Bose stereo sounds awesome. AUX input is strangely missing, but you can connect a phone/ipod whatever to the DVD input. Mileage isn't great, but it is the same for most of these trucks. Read up about brake issues on these trucks. Same for Nissan Titan and Armada. Warped rotors are not a big deal to me. $56ea at the local part store, I don't care if I need to replace them once a year. The other brake issue is the 'delta stroke sensor'. You will want to google that. A sensor goes bad in the brake booster causing the antilock brakes to kick on. Feels like you are trying to stop on ice. I knew it was a possibility so I wasn't freaked out when it happened to me. Truck still stopped pretty good, just had that grindy/vibrating pedal feel. You can clear the fault by simply restarting the vehicle. If it happens a few more times I will look into replacing the brake booster ($180)

I have owned my QX56 for about 5 years now and love the size, love the navi, loive the back up camera, love the interior and love the entertainment system. Driving this car though, has always been a challenge. I have had constant alignment and suspension problems and the brakes...oh the brakes. This super heavy truck warps brakes yearly!!! I am on a final set hopefully, slotted and drilled but wish I didn't have to go aftermarket! You would think Infiniti would have matched their rotors to the weight of the car!! Questioning getting another although I love the styling.

My lease expires next week so I thought I would summarize the pros and cons of my experience with the QX56. I have had it for over three years and it has almost 45K miles on it. Overall I have enjoyed the power, quiet, and handling. The kids have enjoyed all the leg room, the captain's chairs and DVD in the back. Cargo capacity is great. The biggest problem I have with it is the suspension- -the car booms and shudders with even small potholes. Second biggest problem is occasional glitch with brakes that dealer told me they had never heard of but has happened with other owners. (suddenly makes a loud clunking sound and gets jerky upon rebraking- -must restart car.) Actual mileage: 13.

After researching over a year comparing Navigators, Yukons, Sequoias and others we are VERY happy we chose the QX56. We just returned from Lake Powell towing 10 hours each way, the QX made the trip seem easy. Lots of torque for towing, no problem pulling a 3,000 lb boat up long grades using AC in 115 degree heat. The load leveling worked superb! It's very quiet and comfortable and fun to drive, handles almost as good as my BMW 740. I read a lot of reviews and felt confused by the contrast of those who love and hate this truck - glad we took the chance because we love it. If you tow it is a good choice with load leveling and tow mode shifting.

I am very unhappy with this car. First the brakes are recalled and then the hatchback broke on the day we needed to pack for camping. The electrical goes out randomly. The car thinks the emergency brake is on when it isn't and it then skids when I come to a stop. I feel very unsafe driving it. I do love how big it is. I do love the DVD for the kids. I love the automatic lift for the hatchback. The navigation screen is totally useless. I love the back up camera. I will not be able to buy another car without it. We are breaking our lease early to get rid of this car.

I previously owned a 2004 QX56 which had two significant problems and a few minor ones. Yet it was really comfortable and absolutely great to drive on the highway. After a year and a half, I traded it in on a 2006 model, and I've been extremely happy in every respect with the new model. Obviously, early manufacturing problems and quality control issues have been resolved based on my experience. My dealer experience, although limited to scheduled maintenance visits, has been superb. The '06 QX56 is great on the road--powerful and comfortable. The interior is very well done. Gas mileage on the road is inverse to my speed. At 70 mph, I get 19.2-19.5 mpg.

This car has so much power, acceleration and is so solid and quiet. A fantastic freeway cruiser and it seats 8. Corners not much worse than my E320 Mercedes. The heated seats are nice and the split rear seat is a big plus. Tons of leg room in the second row. Pick this car over some junky American version like Cadillac or Chevy.

My wife and I were about to purchase the Mercedes GL450 when she stopped in to drive the QX56. The truck is a great mix between comfort and braun. It sounds like a truck, rides like a car, and hauls everything. It also has all of the bells and whistles of the 21st century. Bluetooth, Navi, great seats, large buttons, and a jammin' stereo! The style was a little different, but once you drive it you see the truck in a whole different light!

I just for the QX56 two weeks ago and it is a joy to drive. After driving a QX4 and a Toyota 4Runner, both of which were fine, the QX56 is the car I've waited for. The ride is smooth and firm for such a big vehicle. I love the power of the V8 and the fact that I can take just about anything (and anyone) wherever I need to go. With only one child and one dog, my husband thinks I'm nuts to drive such a big SUV, but I love how safe I feel. This is the 4th Infiniti we've owned and we can't imagine buying any other brand of car.

My wife and I were sold on the Mercedes GL-450 until she drove the QX56. Not only was the hype of a Mercedes false, but the QX56 was superior. We only wish they offered the Intelligent Key allowing entry wihtout pressing any buttons. Power folding seats would also be nice. Howevver; these features are not worth the $20k difference of the Mercedes. We are so happy we chose this vehicle over the Mercedes. If you are in the market for a large SUV, you MUST drive this one! Also, the Infiniti service is second to none.

The title speaks for itself. I bought the QX56 for my lead-footed wife and she loves it so much she may just keep it (unlike the other 3 SUV's in the last 5 years). She has not one single complaint. Maybe I'll surprise her and buy her a new one if there is a re- design.

I just got my QX56 5 days ago and I'm so happy. I traded in a 2001 QX4 that served us well. We decided to make the leap to a BIG SUV and it was the absolute right thing to do. It's fun to drive, there's tons of room for everything (and everyone), and it looks great. My husband thinks I'm nuts to want to drive such a big car, but it makes me feel extremely safe, plus it drives like a luxury car, not a big SUV. This is our 4th Infiniti and we are customers for life.

I love the style, the power, the features and the head turning this vehicle gives. This is the first time I own and drive an SUV and I love it. The price is excellent for all the features this great car has to offer!!!

After reading all the other reviews i'm starting to belive that i was just sold a lemon. My driver's seat is comfortable although the other 6 are not. In the Winter i cannot get into the car because my handles become frozen shut (From Long Island - not cold temps). This Suv is absolutely top 5 for fuel guzzlers. Also, the wood pieces fall out of the doors when you close it. Like most other SUV's when opening the windows it's like taking off in a plane (these windows are by far the worst at of all the suvs in its class).

My Wife had a Choice of Any type of SUV out there but liked the Nissan Armada. We both saw a QX56 & said that's it! Not knowing it was the same SUV. We Love the Body style, Interior, GPS, Bose system, backup camera & audible warning, easy lifting 2nd row seats, DVD entertainment (added another Headrest DVD system), didn't include Tow Package but decided later not to add one because it Cheapens the look of the vehicle, added 22" Customs Wheels w/Low profile tires, Cold Air Intake and Exhaust system (MagnaFlow) for Fuel efficiency. Only problem that we inccured are that the Sunroof's plastic bracket comes off a lot, Air condition controls and all Passengers windows sometimes doesn't work.

We were called to test drive the new QX56, and told of a very handsome rebate to owners of the 2004QX56. We loved the 2004, and had no problems with it, now even the brskes. The deal we were offered on the new Q was the best deal we had ever had on any vehicle, and grabbed the new car. Very happy with the car,and all of it's new refinements. We have found that the price of fuel is of no consequence where safety is involved. We feel safe with the car, love to drive it, and enjoy all the stares from people on the road. Nice job, Nisan, this is our 5th Infiniti since 1998. We are customers for ever.

I was looking for a nice, comfortable car (Lexus ES350 or Infiniti G35) and ended up getting the QX56 for its great ride and ability to hold our family of 6. Compared to others in its class, the QX56 is the overall champion IMHO. Great ride, looks tough, lots of standard equipment and the price is great compared to others (Escalade and Navigator). I considered the 2007 Escalade but by the time you added on the option it topped 62k. You get much more vehicle for the money with the QX56 and also, not everyone else has one. For those trying to decide among full-size luxury SUVs, I don't think there's a better deal out there. In the end, you just have to drive one, then you'll have no doubt.

Traded from 2004, which we had no problem with, to the new 2006. Infiniti made ua an offer we could not refuse. We enjoyed our 2004, even though some people had problems. We, truthfully, never had a bit of trouble with our car. The new Q is 4 wheel drive, and has many added features we did not have in the 2006. Most important to my family is our safety, and we feel safe with this car. Reliability is in the head of the owner. We never had problems with the car, and found it to be very reliable. We are willing to sacrifice fuel for safety, and comfort, and this is why we own the new QX56. Truly a great allaround vehicle, for us. Allen Pearl

I just bought this SUV at the first of this month. I am in love with this SUV. I saw one in town and just fell in love with it. I almost got a speeding ticket trying to find out what kind of SUV that was. I stay in a small town in southwest GA and all luxury cars that are down here are Lexus, Lincolns, and Cadillacs an occasional Audi or Mercedies. This SUV stands out. I thought about gettting an Escalade or a Navigator but everyone has one so when I saw the Infiniti I just knew that was the SUV for me. My QX56 is fully loaded. Thank you so much Roswell Infiniti of Roswell GA.

My wife and I bought a 2004 QX56, s wheel drive 18 months ago. We have enjoyed the car, and the service offered to us. Unlike some owners of that year and model, we have had no trouble with the brakes, or the car. We were invited to look at the 2006, and because we were loyal owners of the 2004 QX56, and several other Infiniti products over the years, we were made a deal that we could not refuse. We feel safe in the car, and we feel that we owe this safety to our family. Fuel, the way it is, was a factor, but you cannot put a price on your life. It was a pleasure to deal with Schumacher again, even though our old standby salesman has left the deaalership. They treated us like kings.

So far it has been great! This is my first Infiniti QX56, previous 2 SUVs were Lincoln Navigator and Ford Expedition. Have also driven an Escalade much. Not the get up and go power of the Escalade but a close second. More comfortable than the Escalade or my previous SUV's. Great construction--sturdy, Navigator moldings didn't hold up well to my 3 girls and their numerous friends pilled into "mom's taxi." Did have an immediate gear shift problem within hours of receiving the new car, fixed within 24 hours at the dealer. Gear was slipping out of drive and brakes locking up until motor turned off (not good in traffic)--no problems since first day. Love the look, size, engine power.

The QX56 has great off the line power. The front seats are extremely comfortable. The ride is smooth. There were a lot of things that needed to be repaired because of poor workmanship at the 3,750 mile checkup. Middle seat cupholders are in a bad place and have been broken twice when stepped on in the dark. With everything working well this car is great if you have kids!

I have done a lot of research over the past 6 months and finally purchased a 2006 QX56 in January. We purchased the QX for my wife and 3 small kids while I will now drive the Lexus LX that previously was the wife's. I have to say, that is looks like any of the issues with the car in 04/05 have been fixed now. The truck is quiet (will never be as silent as a car), solidly built and has the BEST features. I was ready to buy a new LX, but opted for the styling of the QX and frankly a lot more room too! I hate that the Lexus seats fold up against the windows in my LX - but this is no problem in the QX. This car feels like it will last a long time. The comfort is unsurpassed.

The drive of the QX is quite, smooth and luxurious. I have not had any problems with the mechanics or finishes of the inside or out. The GPS is very user friendly, the sound system wonderful. Working with Infinity has been very easy and their system of loaner cars makes normal maintenance a breeze. The seats are so easy to manuver and the configuations give you alot of flexability. Gas mileage is the only drawback.

so far, so good

After one month, no problems. A clear upgrade from our suburban. Great power, solid suspension, firm brakes. Around town we remove the second row center console- that way the kids can get to the third row without flipping seats (nice when there are car seats or boosters in the second row). Biggest problems are with telematics. Bluetooth implementation is simplistic with poor voice recognition. I absolutely hate how the nav system is crippled when driving (it's an SUV, the front seat passenger can enter commands). It makes the idrive in our BMW look even more awesome.

My 12th SUV and the best yet

After comparing other SUV's in this class, It was a easy choice. Each of the competitors have some features that are good, but, Infiniti QX56 has the most features of all others for the price. Power is great. Ride and handling are very good. The interior is comfortable and good looking. You feel very safe in this vehicle. My Wife said she could be happy with others, but she would be real happy with the QX56. She loves her QX56

I really wanted the Lincoln Navigator but saw the Infinity on the road and like the look. Drove the Lexus, Lincoln, Escalade, Hummer, and the QX56 won me over. The first speed bump I drove over shocked me because I barely felt it. I was so dissapointed in the interior of the Lincoln. Cheap cover over the GPS lost it for me. Lexus 3rd row folding against the side taking up space. If you are enviro sensitive, look at the amount of emissions put out by the Infinity vs. competitors.

Excellent

The vehicle has been an amazing experience. The ride is exceptional, with power to spare. Comfort level is high and quality is what you would expect from an Infiniti. Get numerous compliments from strangers. Only complaint is the temperature controls are confusing and the A/C gets turn on unknowingly.

My daily driver is a 04 Corvette Z06, however I look for reasons to drive the QX56!! I also have a 01 Denali, the QX is so much more of a comfort to drive. We love this truck!!!!

I am very impressed with the vehicle. The interior room and quality of meterials is excellent. Towing capacity very impressive, Exterior is very impressive. I've owned GMC Yukons and find that the Infiniti is superior. Our family now owns 2 infiniti's a QX56 and a FX35.

I've been looking for a luxury SUV for quite some time. I did'nt want to be like the rest. I saw an ad for the QX56. I immediately had to go see it! I called my husband and we went to go test drive the suv. It didnt even ride like an suv. Comming out from a Tahoe to a QX56 was a HUGE change. This drives like a lux car. I know we'll look to buy a small car to add to our addition for my husband. We're in love with the Infinities! All of them. All the safty features are there. We have 2 kids and I feel very secure with the added security. Our kids will have Infinities to drive off to college (station wagon). I can finally exhale.

Great SUV

I just leased 05 QX56 AWD last week. I love this SUV and all the features on it. I paid $50,300 for full loaded and money factor on my lease was .00136 for 39 months.

We drive in the Pacific Northwest and this BIG Urban Assault Vehicle definitely comes in handy in our fickle weather. It also provides a high degree of safety on our busy freeways. This is my wife's vehicle and she loves it. You ride HIGH and safe, comfy in the leather surroundings. Controls are very intuitive and easy to use. We enjoy the automatic rear hatch, the back-up TV, nav system and the stereo is high-end too.

This one stands out from the rest

I didn't know too much about the infinitis. Then, i started seeing commercials, ads, and some around town. I was over the "sporty" suv look. I wanted something classy and different. I looked into the infinity qx56 and i fell in love with it. I loved it so much that i had all the extras that you can imagine put on for me.. 22"Rims, 2 part grill, 3 tv's. I went for it! I get double takes on my car all the time and compliments on it! Infinity of montclair dealership team was great! Thank you for buying my car of my dreams honey! Dr. Michael & emma lawrence

My QX56 is fantastic. I've owned SUV's since they were called trucks, and this baby is no truck. It handles well, rides well and has torque to spare when you hit the pedal getting into traffic. Very roomy and comfortable we have the dual entertainment screens for the kidss in the seat backs....a blessing. Tires and Rims look great and the body style stands out.. I have owned Yukon's, Jeeps, and the odd pickup and I can honestly say this QX56 is a winner. We looked at an Escalade and it was just an overexpensive Yukon with plastic wood glued onto the same Yukon stuff. Even the seats were the same...for 65K??? QX56 get one....you will be very happy.

Excellent!!!!

By far the best in its class. I have had my QX for 6 weeks and am so happy with my decision. I was in a car accident and wasn't even hurt. One of the other cars in the accident was totaled. I did not even have whiplash. Extremely safe...great if you have kids or you like to look cool. Get the sunroof. Navigation is simple. Stock radio is amazing. Could use a better A/C system. Heated seats are not that hot.

good, but my M45 is better

Outperforms any comparable SUV by a county mile, extremely comfortable on long trips, 19mpg is a complete fiction, more like 13. Looks improve dramatically with custom wheels (mine are 22"). Hard to adjust a/c comfortably, though it's powerful, same with stereo system. DVD system is complicated. Have had problems with shuddering during braking, but Infiniti service is first class - they try very hard to please
