Default what are your thoughts about the 2004 infiniti qx56?

would i be better off getting fx35 or fx45?
i have owned and worked on plenty of vq30de and vq35de's so i know a lot about them. but what about the 4.5L(vk45de) and 5.6L (vk56de)?? are they as good as the vq's (jd power awards every year)? i have had several maximas and have a qx4 now. it is not big enough.
fx35 and fx45 dont have much back seat room either.
qx56 has a lot of back seat room

Yes, you would be better off with an FX.

I do know that the 04 Armada and QX56 have grossly undersized brakes that were a source of very, very poor reliability ratings for those cars in their first year. Statistically, one of the least reliable vehicles ever made.

I would pass.

Default QX reliability (potential new users thread)

Hi, almost decided on purchasing the qx80. It is a very nice vehicle. I have done a bit of research. However, could not find much info on reliability. Really appreciate if the owners could shed some light. Was on MB 450 forum briefly, and was horrified about the reliability issues they have to deal with.

Thanks a lot.

well, what did you find out? no news is good news right?

there is also another thread on a similar subject. these types of threads crop up every couple/few months... ;D

these cars are made in japan and are very reliable. ive been a nissan suv owner since 2006 and have had 3 nissan suvs (nissan makes the Q so it's included in that) and they have all been reliable.

you are on a pro nissan/infiniti forum after all ;P

what specific areas are you concerned about?

ask specific questions as opposed to "is it reliable" and you should get more direct answers.

welcome.

Default very reliable

Yes, very reliable. No issues so far. No 'EMP' yet either, so that helps ! LOL
Like Marc said, built in Japan = reliable.
I like the attention to detail with the way its designed and built. Its solid.
I would buy it a gain if I had too.
Have a good one

Default Thanks for the feedbacks!

Thanks a lot for the feedbacks. Ordered black on black, awd, all the options. Plan to pick up this weekend.

Was worried about the reliability of the options. Typically, the more options, i.e., more complicated, more prone to problems.

Only thing that will drive u nuts is the Navigation voice recognition.... I swear this thing thinks I speak as if I've had a stroke, as it never gets my spoken commands correct, even when I'm yelling and red in the face...... or wait, maybe I did have a stroke and that's what I'm really sayin'!!!

the navi system is fine once you follow a few tips.

set up the training mode. do it with the car off and no outside noises. the system will learn the more you talk into it.

dont YELL!!!

speak in a conversational tone and pace. dont sound like a robot.

use "zero" and not "oh" when speaking numbers

wait at least 2.5 seconds when its your turn to speak your command.

ive been using this system since 2008 and once you go through the learn modes and learn to just speak normally, you will be just fine.

the latest nav update seems to tighten up the system performance.

not to derail this thread as we have talked about this in another thread, your mic may be in need of replacing.

what i like about the system is if you have the HVAC fan speed on high, it will reduce it so it can better pick up your voice. i am sure other factory systems do this but its still a nice touch.

I have trouble with the voice commands also.

But then I have a very, very deep voice and it's loud. Or so my wife tells me.

I have found that if I speak in a half whisper it generally works.
