2011 QX56 Owner Reviews (4)

I bought this QX56 in 2011 brand new. I ran great until two months ago when it wouldn't run over 5mph. Had it towed to original dealer. They called three hours later and said the oil jets needed to be replaced and in order to do that the timing chain needed to be replaced. Anticipate repair cost $4,000. They called back 30 minutes later and said the engine needed to be replaced at a cost of $17,000. Engine was out of warranty and problem has occured to many QX56's. Dealer and manufacturer won't pay for any of the repairs even though they have been paying for a lot of these when under warranty. Don't buy this vehicle unless it is under warranty and get rid of it before the warranty runs out.
I own fully loaded QX56 for past 11 month

Ok tires :) garbage brake performance in rain or snow poor. on 22 weel no different company make tires :( Electronic quality poor. System crashing. you need to play to make USB works. Sound control don't change sound level even it showing that it changing. Quality went down from 2005. Paint job :) let say it start rusting paint is coming off. (no car accident & car has 7k) Navigation... my old nuvi 755 work better that what they putting in. Pluses car better on gas then 2010 model but in is not going even close to 14/20 I am getting 10.1 ;) about 14-15 miles on highway. Odometer is off by few miles :) Good part it is drive more like sedan and very good handle the road when it is not raining Compassion infiniti twice scratch and dented my car. If you have truck avoid this place :)

Have to say well worth the money so far. My QX has all three package groups. In the first 2000 miles, not a single problem. As you can read anywhere, it's big, powerful, absolutely loaded, luxuriously appointed, quiet. But here's what is not in most reviews. The seats are superbly comfortable. Nav is easiest I've used thus far (my experience is Volvo xc90, tahoe ltz, jag xf). Includes 3D birds-eye view and buildings (in certain areas). Current location feature even estimates altitude. Voice commands have on-screen prompts. Buttons and rotary dial for front screen features are intuitive and easy to use. The traffic aids (blind spot, etc) are not overbearing at all. There is an ipod connect port, but you can also use bluetooth for music. You can program service reminder prompts. No tire gauge needed. The QX honks when you've filled enough air. XM weather includes local and national maps of precip, temps, warnings. Local warnings announce through car speakers. Coolest camera system on market with cameras on all 4 sides to aid with backing and parking. Can even turn them on with 1-button while in "D" at very low speed, including a straight forward view (very useful for parking). All 3 seat rows recline. Very generous 2nd row leg room. Plenty of cupholders. There is a 120 outlet for 2nd row. 2-sets of AV cable inputs. 2nd-row video screens are in headrests. Just finished 500-mile trip and averaged about 19.5 mpg on highway, mostly at 70-75 mph. Surely there are more of these kind of details to mention. Bottom line ... great luxury SUV.
