Pros:

Powerful engine; love the 4-wheel drive; comfortable seats, so much better than driving a pickup for 40 years. Until this truck craters, I don't plan on replacing it.

Cons:

The front wheel well covers that protects the engine compartment from throwing mud into the engine compartment is to flimsy. They are now rubbing the tires, but being made of some lightweight synthetic cardboard,doesn't hurt anything.

Review:

My odometer is now at 136,000 miles. After changing from regular Chevron fuel to premium, my mpg jumped to 18-1/2 mpg. Hooray!!

Best car ever!

Review:

I bought a 2004 QX56 for my wife. Stop laughing and no she does not want a divorce. The dealer in NJ is great. Not their problem this vehicle should have never been released. I am going back for the fourth time for the brake fix. There is no brake fix. Just look at the 05 and 06 service bulletins. Same problems. By the way, there are 55 service bulletins for the 04 QX56. When is the design folks at Nissan/Infinity on the QX56 getting sacked? The mother of all lemons. Goshen should offer a buy back to anyone who has a bad one. I am going to get legal counsel, and try this. 28K and the vehicle is falling apart.

roomy, with lots of rattles

Pros:

Tons of twist, 390 lb.ft of it. Nissan are great engine builders. Roomy.

Cons:

The materials used in the interior are subpar. Rattles and squeaks galore.

Review:

We've had this SUV for a year now. The engine is remarkable, with gobs of torque and compared to Hummers and Escaldes gas mileage is good, if you can say an SUV of this size can give good gas mileage. My main problem with this car is the interior build quality. When we went to pick up the car the rear hatch button fell into the console and the salesman franticly ran to find a mechanic to fix the problem. Since then we've had several rattles that just can't be located that are persistent and really annoying.. I can't drive the car without having the stereo on otherwise the rattles and squeaks would drive me nuts.

Pros:

Great value LUV. Plenty of low end torque for uphill towing. Fun to drive and good mpg. 19.3 so far after 7000 miles.

Cons:

The brake thing, new pads after 5000. I will wait and see. I will continue to keep this vehicle as many of my friends have break problems on other brands of vehicles as well with many other problems.

Review:

I bought my Q after many heartaches with my Chevrolet Kodiak. I drove them all, LX470, G500, H1 and H2 Hummer, Range Rover, and Toureag. I must say flat out the Q was the most for the money. The Toureag was the absolute best handing car. The G500 was the most expensive and least desirable. My Q is my get around town truck but also my work truck at the ranch. The low range is absolutely great. I have never got this vehicle stuck yet. Almost same capability as my past H1 hummer which was a maintenance nightmare.

Pros:

Looks, power, lots of gadgets..

Cons:

Gadgets do not always work, poor workmanship and parts quality, flaws in the paint, body panel misalignment.

Review:

The QX56 is the best looking full-size SUV on the market. The engine and transmission are very good. It is too bad that poor quality components, design flaws, and substandard workmanship have made owning the QX56 a nightmare. The vehicle has been in the shop, on average, slightly more than once a month. The brakes were repaired three times in less than 10,000 miles including new rotors at 6,657. At 12,000 miles I am starting to have problems again. The interior workmanship and parts quality is abysmal, including rattles from the dash and various places in the cabin. Long term reliability and durability are highly questionable. The design flaws in the brakes have not yet been corrected. Rumor has it that a whole new front brake design is in development but Nissan is not talking to its customers so we cannot verify the rumor. My "Q" also has an assortment of intermittent electrical gremlins including the driver's seat/steering wheel memory and periodic problems with the cruise control. The dealer has been unable to find a fix for either problem. The front suspension does not do a very good job of keeping the front wheels planted on the road at certain speeds over irregular surfaces. The steering feedback can be severe enough to take the steering wheel out of your hand if you do not have a tight two-handed grip and the front of the vehicle will shudder and slide toward the outside of a turn, VERY exciting! I have researched trade-in value and I have lost almost $20,000 in less than 8 months. As soon as I can afford it I will trade it in on a non-Nissan product.
