got the QX80 this weekend. the dealership could not find a vehicle with all the accessories I wanted. so they will put them (kickplate, cross bars, ss real bump plate) on when they get them. otherwise got what I wanted, black on black, awd, all trim options.

had a chance to drive around. yes, it is a really nice vehicle. my younger son had a lot of fun exploring the vehicle. the adaptive cruise control very useful - I can imagine using it all the time when travelling on highway. the sound is fantastic. hooked up an ipod to it, and can access all the music and songs you want to listen to. the Ipod looks like will be staying there forever.

there are just so many things that are so nice to innumerate. definitely no regret.

unfortunately, since the vehicle is so tall, it caught on the pull-down string of garage door openner, and made a few dents to the chrom piece right above the driver-side door. look to replace it - hopefully not too expensive.

other than that, it looks perfect! besides, Texan won! Aggies lost but Jonny looked fine....

i use the ICC aka adaptive cruise all the time. i just sit back and relax. even in stop and go traffic, i have the nanny functions on (IBA, etc) so i just hover my foot over the accelerator and let the car brake for me.

what I like about the iba and those features is when it senses you car not going to slow down and you have your foot on the accelerator, it will "bump" the pedal back to alert you and if you dont respond it will slow down--the chicks love seeing the car do these things on its own!

It will brake for you right down to a complete stop, but it won't hold you there. It gives a bit of a longish beep and then the brakes release!

I never used to use the DCA button on the steering wheel until recently. Wow it is awesome. I just wish it could default to ON and not OFF.

So your roof rack hit the pull down string and it dented the chrome piece above your driver's door?
I'm not following you on this one. Would you mind explaining this?

Reason being I had to tie up the pull down string on our garage door opener as well so it wouldn't drag across the roof and into the roof rack cross bars. Took about 6 inches of the rope up and all is well.

Sorry, The pull-down string got in between the door and driver seat. When you closed the door, it got caught in the door. Since there is a plastic piece at the end of the string, it dented the aluminum piece when the door closed.

I got the aluminum piece replaced, and cost me about $200 - not too bad.

Put around 1000 miles on it. I am getting around 16 mpg for mixed driving. Looks like infiniti has not fixed the gauge for fuel tank. Fuel gauge is definitely non-linear. It quickly shows half empty at around 100 mile. I can only add 20 gal or so when it got to red, empty line. I read a lot of discussions in a separate thread on this issue. Looks to me they have not fixed this issue on qx80. Only a minor annoyance though.

I like DCA and ACC a lot. As long as there is no traffic lights, i turn on acc. It practically drives itself! Very useful.

I am a bit puzzled by the sale guy trying to talk me out of those package options. I view those packages as essential, and glad i insisted having those.

So far, very satisfied. Do not know how well it will hold up.

Thanks for clarifying Richard. Sorry that happened! I recently got some nice beauty marks on the right side of my roof rack crossbars, front and back due to a low hanging sprinkler system pipe in an underground parking garage downtown that was probably 50 years old. Height is an issue I sometimes forget about on this vehicle.

Default Prospective New QX owner

Hi Guys,

Looking at buying a certified pre-owned 2011 QX56 with about 40K miles on it. As a former Q45 owner I assumed the quality of these vehicles would be extremely high. As I did a little research on the vehicle it does not appears that JD Power and associates were less than impressed by the quality of this vehicle.

I've seen one thread on an issue with the timing chain guides. What other issues are people experiencing with the vehicle?
