very nice lux suv...great size and comfort. if you are looking from a great family hauler and can handle the 12mpg than choose this. the qx is loaded with several things other brands are just starting to do...a great example is the rearview camera which cadillac/gm/others dont do

Very un-Japanese in quality!

This vehicle was purchased new in March 2005. My family and I had nothing but problems with this vehicle. We had many engine issues that Santa Monica Infiniti repaired many times and finally my family decided to work with an attorney since this car had so many repairs and many recurring problems and we believed it qualified for remedies through the lemon law. Through persistence and working closely with our attorney Infiniti finally had to buy the car back and give us monetary remedy. We then bought a 2007 Escalade ESV to replace this unsatisfying beast. Infiniti gave us the money in February 2008 after the lemon law buyback.

I bought it in 2007 and since then have had to many bugs in the car like, backup camera failure, seat belt tensioner replacements, airbag light blinking,air pressure leveler failing, brake problems, rear hatch opening by its self, front axle joints making noises, tire air valves failing and so on. I spent like over 5000 big ones already on a car less than 5 years old.

Most of the time, the QX56 has felt very smooth on the road and has been extremely comfortable on long hauls to Mammoth. Comfort is great, but still a body on frame truck. Roomy all around. Great 2nd row - limo- like room. Same height and width, but the extra 8" length over the Yukon are surprisingly noticeable. The kids love it room for them, friends, and groceries. Tows like a champ, very comfortable on long trips. The 4wd system is great. No problems in 4 feet of snow or in light off-roading. Having a 4x4 lo range also sold us on this beast. After one year and 20k miles we are very happy. Currently 95k and counting.

75000 miles and still great!

After 4 1/2 years and 75K miles, this vehicle cannot be beat. We drive locally, long distance, in snow, heat and traffic. We couldn't ask for a better ride, fit finish and overall reliability. All we do are regular oil changes, tire rotations and scheduled maintenance and this truck runs great. We had an unfortunate experience hitting a VERY large deer once, and had we been in anything else, the deer would have been in our laps. We were safe, the deer escaped, and all we had to replace was the front grill and hood. Insurance covered it. Even all the toys (DVD system, Navigation, Sirius, power lift gate) remain in great working order. We love this SUV, and the paint still shines like new!

I have been thrilled with this great SUV. I am a widow with 4 children and I am a Realtor. I have never had any problems with it and it out performs my former suburban. It is the best vehicle I have ever had for the Minnesota winter driving. Lots of room for hauling and lots of entertainment for the kids!

Coming from reliable Toyota vehicles I never thought that buying a new luxury vehicle would be such a let down. I have had over 20 issues with my QX56! From small trim pieces falling off to the brake rotors being replaced twice, the ABS system failing, transmission lines being replaced. I just picked it up yesterday for the transmission issue & today it is still gushing fluid. I am unable to park in the garage because of it. This is the worst vehicle I have owned ever! Please reconsider your Infiniti purchases...Buyer Beware!

I loved my Q4x4 the first year I had it, but it started falling about at about 25k miles. In for repairs for failing elec system... rear liftgate won't lift (at all), tells you liftgate is open when it is not, flashes and beeps warning for flat tire when there is none, dvd is very noisy and the screen is not fastened securely. After the first year it bounces noisily, heated seats went out, driver seat lumbar broke, rear third row seat broke, nav system went out... these are highlights! Will never buy Infiniti again and selling this.

Still like it!

Could not believe my wife still wanted this vehicle after the 04 we rented with the terrible brakes and all the bad reviews we read. A year and a half later - so far, so great. We really like this SUV. There is a little more rattling than we care for. Looking forward to getting the next redesigned model with all the bugs worked out.

I bought this vehicle because I LOVE my G35. The QX is a decent ride with a powerful engine and lots of cargo room. Seats move around easily, third row folds flat and is easily accessed. The QX Comes equipped with cheap tires that won't stay balanced and need to be replaced for a good ride. Interior appointments are nice except for the dash which is straight out of the Armada and not up to luxury standards. The Nav system is sub-par for a vehicle in this price range, Acura's nav is 100 times better. With not a lot of Japanese vehicles to chose from in this size and price range it's not a bad vehicle but I don't love it like my G35.

We owned a Yukon and considered the Escalade and LX450 when we bought the QX56. While the overall vehicle has been very good, and the ride also very good, it still has some jitters and noise on the highway that were not experienced in the other vehicles. Most of the time, the QX56 has felt very smooth on the road and has been extremely comfortable on long hauls to Mammoth. Comfort is great, but at times the ride and feel on the freeway can feel a bit jittery and truck-like inferior to the ride we experienced with the Yukon,or the other cars we drove. Roomy all around. Great 2nd row - limo- like room. Same height and width, but the extra 8" length over the Yukon are surprisingly noticeable.

So far Soo Good!!

We loved this vehicle from the first test drive. Rented a 2004 for extended test drive and it was terrible!! Brakes felt like we were driving on cobblestones. Took a chance and bought a 2005. We love it and have not had any problems. No other large SUV handles like this. Beats my Q45!!

The road performance is fine. The shortfall lies in the dash- poor heating and defroster times, too complicated to find proper settings for climate controls. Have had several minor breakdowns with basic functions ie windshield wipers,mirror motors. Probably would not buy again- I'm a 3X infinity buyer.

I had problems with the brakes but they we repared by a factory call back free of charge; this was after about 6,000 miles. I have taken three long round trips 1,600 or more; and it was a pleasure to drive. I averaged close to 16 miles on the trips. City mileage is about 14.3 miles to the gallon.

The QX56 has all the others beat by a mile! Runs great, looks great, holds 8 people comfortably, or hauls 4x8 shhets of plywood. You name it. Easy seat conversion too. I most like (and have never seen) the Q's ability have a person sit in the second row, and NOT have his knees touch the seat in front. The best, (and best value for the money) auto, I've ever owned! Very satisfied!

I've driven luxury SUV's for years - this truck by far is my favorite. The second row legroom is comparable to an airplane seat in first class. The Navigation is system is the easiest one I've used to date. The truck has phenomenal pickup and has an unbelievably small turning radius for it's size. Parking's a breeze with the rear view camera and beeping alert. The interior is luxurious, yet understated. There is nothing "over- the-top" or flashy about this vehicle unlike many of it's comparable counterparts on the road today.

Awesome SUV...The best

We had this vehilce for 4 days when we ran out of gas due to a faulty electrical system (the gauge read full). Since 4/05, when we bought it new, we have had the brakes replaced, the rotors replaced, and more work done to the electrical system (on several occassions). I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone.

I own a Chevy and a Mecedes Benz. When I bought the QX-56, I thought I would be treated with the same intensity as I am with the Benz. Instead, I feel like I bought a Chevy. The truck, although pricey, is a terrible driving truck. Its balloon tires bounce down the road and the steering wheel jumps out of my hand over rougher road surfaces. Its dashboard is the most cumbersome I have ever come across. It is noisy and has many rattles. It only has 8,000 miles. I had problems with the front brakes at 3,000 miles. The dealer knew about it. The rotars were warped. They cut them instead of replacing. A Chevy dealer would cut. A benz dealer would replace

This car has been a real disappointment. We love the look of the car and the overall comfort of the interior. BUT, We have had it in for service 4 times now, they charge us almost $600 each time for service, and with 20,000 miles they have had to fix the brakes 3 times, the dealer has even admitted that there is a brake problem with these cars and they do not know how to fix it except to keep replacing them every 5000 miles or so. The interior console that houses the fold up tv screen rattles like crazy, the automatic opening backdoor has had to been fixed twice. After having this car for 1.5 years I have had enough. I dont feel safe with these brakes and a 13 month child. Don't buy it

I sold this SUV at a loss, but I was happy to get rid of it. I wish i had read these reviews before i bought this suv. To think i traded my lexus lx470, i wanted more room, for this big rattler.

After shopping All SUVs this was the on for me. I have owned the Mercedes ML, and the Lincoln Navigator, for interior plushness and utility this QX56 is far superior. The easy tumble mid seats and the fold flat rear third row is better than the Escalade. You can remove the mid-seat console for even more ease to the third row.

This is a great car to drive, however the car has poorly designed brakes. Mine were replaced by dealer after being in shop three times. I strongly recommend all Q56 owners have their brakes check. The dealer has not been able to get rid of all the rattles. At two miles hour bumpers will sustain damage upon hitting object. Dealer did not imfom me that I needed to use premium gas until after I purchase the Q56.

The instrument panel is very attractive with out effecting the need for being functonal. Instrumentation did not leave me wanting! The comfort of the seats and color co-ordination with the hardwear; first class. they just did'nt miss a beat from the rear view monitor to the navigation system and ever thing in between.I would like to know what if anything they left out. The exterior is a combination of the look of power and style just what i was looking for in an suv. Under the hood total power and acceleration more than I can use.

I bought this vehicle last year and I love it. Sure the gas mileage isn't that great, but if you spend that much money on a vehicle and all you do is worry about the gas mileage then maybe you shouldn't buy one. The power is unbelievable for an SUV of this size. I highly recommend the QX56.

We were looking at several vehicles and fell in love with the styling of the QX56. Love the ride, interior and power. However the vehicle has been in over 10 times in the past 8 months for anything from many large rattles & squeaks, new brake system to having to repaint door molding and roof rack. Just today - the same center console rattle that we have had it in for 4 times started again. This is not a subtle rattle, but a loud one that wakes small children.

Except for the rear door catching part of the edge of the front door, in certain instances, the car is a dream to drive, and own. Comfort, style and the feeling of being safe on the road is built into this car. Can't wait to take it on a long trip. Expect to take it north in August, and give it a good run on the road.

We now have 6500 miles on this vehicle, although we have to stop more often for gas, I wouldn't trade this vehicle for any that I have purchased in the past. Since 1969 I have purchased at least 28 new vehicles, not including motorcycles and some trucks. Fun to drive, very quiet, excellent radio. Don't like where the clock is, but who cares about the time when you are driving this unit.

Many mechanical issues. Replaced front brake rotors and pads 4 times. Infiniti knows of brake shutter problems and finally found a fix. Both front driver and passanger window motors had to be replaced as windows would not roll up properly. Interior plastic scratches very easily. If you have kids....expect the interior to get all beat up looking and scratched. The cruise control sensor will not function if the sensor gets any dirt and water on it....so forget about using in the rain. We use in the snow during the winter and the 4X4 stability is poor due to heavy weight difference toward the rear. On a positive note, the service dept is excellent. I would not recommend.

The dealership is worthless and I am frustrated. Its not fun driving a car that has the most awful squeak/rattle coming from above constantly! Even my 2 small kids and the radio cant drown out that noise! It has also been in for the gear shifter sticking twice. Please think twice about this vehicle....its not worth it!

Since I bought this car it has been a house of pain Rattling is so bad you can never imagine. It has been to dealership 4 times still NO FIX. Dealer is a nice team but they cannot rebuild the whole car. Now less than a year new AC broke, Breaks are gone, Back spoiler broke and flew on Highway If you love engine, wait 'til it starts giving you a hissing snake noise. DVD/TV interrupt with Audio. Remote on TV does not work. I have lost my patience and ***PLEASE DO NOT BUY IT NO Matter which couple of things you may like in this vehicle **** OR wait till Infinity fixes it all Do not be impressed by NEW Buyers Comments, They do not know what they got into..

This car has a great drive train but rides rough, rattles and the wheels vibrate like crazy. The dealership says it was design so tight that you will feel more of the road. If the road is not a good road then you will feel it in the steering wheel. I'm trying to get them to satisfy me but not getting anywhere. This car needs work.

It is a very nice ride with many luxury features that are standard. Gas mileage could be better, but for the size and engine power, it is overall a great deal. Learning to park a car this size is a bit intimidating at first, but it is far easier than something as big as a Suburban.

I went from a 02 Escalade to this. I like 80% of the style and features of the Qx56 better. There are a few little things I do miss like the doors do not lock automatic when you shift into gear. Also I am a big fan of the heated seats and the Qx56 do not get hot enough. I miss the power folding mirrors for parking in tight spots. Over all I like the Qx56 better though. The power lift gate is very cool. Also the third row seat is way better and it folds flat. If any one is in the market for a luxury suv then I would recommend this one for sure. One other note the 4 year 60k mile warrany were also a deciding factor for me. Hope this helps someone out there.

Wanted to downsize, had 4 surburbans and was leary of change. Love this car, ride is the smoothest, interior is spacious and so fun to drive.I drove all the other luxury SUV's and this car is my favorite by far and fairly priced compared to others. The lack of cargo space is hard to get use to but that is part of downsizing.

We have owned the QX56 for about three weeks. It offers lots of leg room for passengers. I wish the front passenger seat was offered with 10 way adjustments and was a tad bit more comfortable. The storage behind the third row is VERY disappointing. We were forced to place our luggage in the third row, next to our son, on our first long trip. Infiniti should consider splitting the third row bench seat to accomodate luggage and at least one third row passenger. All-in- all, my wife and I prefer the QX56 over all of the other SUV models we tested. If you are looking for 8 passenger room, you should strongly consider this model; however, beware of the limited storage space!!!

This could be a great car, but when you pay $55k for a luxury auto and then have the rattles, shakes, and bad brakes it doesn't matter how nice everything else is. I thought it would be worked out for 2005. Now I am suffering along with the 2004 owners. I wish I had never purchased this vehicle. It has taken a lot of time and energy to get Infiniti to make the fixes on this thing and it is still not better. I would rather be driving a common Tahoe or Sequoia. I may look good on the outside but I am too embarrassed to have friends, coworkers, clients etc ride in it. If you really want one, I advise to wait a few years and then reevaluate very conservatively or buy a 2004 for cheap.

Our search for the Dream family-sized SUV ended with the QX56. The size, ride, handling, ergonomics (exception: useless clock)and build quality is exceptional in this category. We blew through an Expedition EB (don't get me started), and a Sequoia Ltd (why do they STILL not have a fold- flat 3rd seat???)to get here. We ordered the bench 2nd-row: the 3rd doesn't split, requiring you to open the whole seat if you have 5 passengers in the Capt's chair option. Just took a trip w/4 people,1 dog,4 sets of clubs & luggage.Plenty roomy! Mileage on hwy fully loaded is +/- 16mpg. Range of 400 miles per tank is great. Very smooth on and off-road (mudding through a construction zone). Buy it now!

The XM Satelite radio is fine, the Navigation is wonderful with the "Birds Eye View". The gas mileage I think could be better but 14.25 mpg is what it gets. This SUV is Powerful, no problem getting out into the thick of it. The stopping power could put you through the windshield, I had one occasion for a panic stop, (AWSOME)

Vehicle is a pleasure to drive. I own numerous German autos and this one is comparable in quality, features, and especially comfort, at half the price. The power band is awesome, the transmission silky smooth, and the driver controls are well placed. Brakes could be better, and it has a pretty good blind spot on the driver side but you learn to accommodate. Overall it was a great purchase and I am proud to drive and be seen in it. It definitely turns heads everywhere we go.

This auto replaces a 2004 M45. The M45 was very nice, but no trunk room. This SUV fills all of our family needs, has a wonderful ride, and the handling is supburb. All in all, the QX56 is perfect for us, and we love it. Fuel economy is important, but not as important as all of the other features on this car. We love it. It's big, yes, but easy to handle.

Interior is very roomy and can actually fit 8 adults (although getting into the back seat takes a little work). The car has quite a bit of power and rides smoothly. Great in dash 6 disk changer and sound system. Definitely a family car as it is a big vehicle.

I read some mixed reviews before going to the dealership and test driving the QX56 for myself. Funny how the Nissan Armada gets consistently high reviews and the QX gets a hard time from the MSN car reviewer expert when the QX and Armada are sisters with the same engine and body but the QX has a quieter ride with all the luxury carpet and leather. Plus, the QX costs 10-25K less than other luxury competetion. It is most comfortable and has awesome power w/the best towing capability of any SUV. Love the interior and styling is fine, much better than the square SUVs that look so generic regardless of what badge is stuck on them.

Having lived in Chicago for most of my life, I was thrilled with the promise of milder winters. Memphians love to bragg about their lack of winter-like weather, and I was more than willing to experience this first-hand. Chicago can be brutal. Even so, knowing that owning a powerful Suv equipped to handle the worst road conditions was not necessary here in the sunny south, it was love at first site. My first road trip was to Florida, and she performed beautifully. So what if she never had to prove herself in two feet of snow.

Vehicle is excellent. Very smooth on the road and very responsive around town. Really like the rear back-up camera. It is something all cars should have. Around town gas mileage is a little slim, but road milage is fine. Liked the way the rear two rows of seats fold away. Having owned three Lexuses before this purchase, I'm very impressed with Infiniti. This car is bigger than the Lexus 470 and is better quality than the Cadillac Escalade

The QX 56 has taken us by surprise. We previously had suburbans and lincolns and this vehicle beats both hands down.It lacks the rear space of the suburban, but has enough room. The smoothness, handly and quality are above and beyond what we expected. great car for the price. We looked at Sequioas and the interior space was not as nice as the infiniti. A great family SUV.

I tried every large SUV on the market to take advantage of the SUV tax break. I really wanted a Lexus but there was just something about the Lexus that seemed like it was 5 years behiond the times, even the GX. Someone told me to try the Infinity Q56. It's a luxury liner. All the luxury and comfort of a Lexus and then some, and then the brute power to pull anything and go pretty much anywhere.

This suv has an overhead console that does nothing but rattle. The noise is so intense that I can not enjoy the true fun of driving this vehicle. In addition the drivers seat offers very little support,it seems to cavein rather than support.Since I took ownership I have had to have the rotors cut on three different occasions. In short, as for quality, this vehicle leaves a lot to be desired.

I did extensive research before this purchase and I'm very pleased with the results. The fit, finish, and comfort features are second to none. Many of the luxury options on this vehicle are standard compared to others (Cadillac, Lincoln, Land Rover, Lexus, Denali), and you won't find as many on the road which makes it unique! Although Nissan makes the similar Armada for about $7K less, this one has all of the bells and whistles, the engine is smooth, quiet and more powerful. Before you go and buy an escalade or Navigator, stop by your Infiniti dealer...you'll end up with one in your garage (if it will acutally fit in it!!)

I checked out all the large SUV's and am a previous owner of the Lexus LX470 and Escalade EXT. The QX56 was tops because: 1- The interior room, especially the 2nd row. 2- The seats fold flat for excellent storage and comfortable for my aging Golden Retriever. 3- The looks are attractive . 4- The rear parking camera. 5- The navagation system is far more practical and useful than On Star, plus it's free. 6-Infiniti people, corporate, called me to ask how I like it and how they could make it better. Impressive.I wanted to get another LX, but they still insist that their removeable 3rd row seats, are a good idea. Who wants to store them.I believe most people spending 70k don't have small kids.

I purchased this vehicle at Inifiniti of Memphis, my hometown and I reside in Arkansas near the Oklahoma border (about 5 hours)and on my trip home, I felt like I was a first class passenger flying in a JET. I have driven several different SUV's and my choice was between this vehicle and the Cadillac Escalade. I must say that the escalade is beautiful on the outside like the Inifiniti, but the inside cannot compare. The Cadillac is not only outdated inside, but has a pimpish image and this is not what I wanted. When you say Infiniti it says class, luxury, technology and performance.
