I have a 2011 with about 123,000 miles on it. So I would say these things are built to last. Somethings to look for when considering a truck like this. 1. Has the timing chain been done? Or does it need to be done, 2. At some point you may want to get your Catalytic converters look at (for some reason these units are notorious for the P0420 and P0430 codes). I am actually fighting that code now...lol. The price from the dealer for replacement is about 1900.00 per side based on information here. Make sure all recalls have been performed. Aside from the things I listed, just make sure the maintenance has been done like all the fluid has been changed and air filters

this car is based off the nissan patrol. that is a very successful car in many parts of the world. its built to last.

ive a 2012 with 80K miles on it. never had an issue and its my daily driver.

the 2011's and some early 2012s had timing chain issues that were corrected via a recall. this timing chain recall affected the cats due to this. that said, ive not ever had any error codes related to cats (or any error codes at all)--again some early 2011 and 12s did but that is not something you should worry about on a later model years.

as above, make sure maintenance has been done and good records kept. no one but infiniti have touched my car and I ill keep it that way, but regardless, check the records.

no matter how reliable a car is if its been poorly maintained, it wont last.

Default 2010/2012 qx56

So I am considering purchasing a QX56. Found 2 in my area available. One is a 10 with 85k miles. The other is a 12 with 130k miles. Both are close in price (12 is about 1k more). Is it worth it to get the 12 with higher milage or stick with the 10 with close to 50k miles less. What issues should I look out for with these trucks.

The most important thing to look for when comparing the two is the timing chain issue. Has it been serviced or if it is even part of the Infiniti recall. Second, see if the catalytic converters have been replaced or at least look at to see if there are any issues. Other then the above issues I would opt for the 2012. Without know all the specs of both the main reason I would go with the 2012 is because it has a better drive train and honestly looks way better inside and out. One thing you should be aware of is that the plastic roof front and rear on the 2010 will tend to crack or break off, if haven't already done so.
