Tire Squeeling, Mud Slinging, Boat Towing Luxury. by charlyRoot from South Carolina on 03/29/2008. Trim: 2008 Infiniti QX56 4WD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The power!! Something this big is not supposed to get to 60 MPH in under 7 seconds. I love pulling into traffic. I had a Sequoia before this and couldn't turn the traction control off. At the touch of a button, my Infiniti will cut donuts until my hearts content...on dirt or pavement! I'm going throw gas and tires abnormally fast but that's my choice. I'm a single 30 year old single male and my work just gave me one of these. I actually wanted a new Yukon or Denali. To quote Garth Brooks, "Some of Gods greatest gifts, are unanswered prayers." Another great thing is that it's fancy Infiniti but it still a truck. Air bags and transmission coolers. I have a 6,000 pound boat and I
Cons: Pros Continued... catch myself running my standard 5 MPH over on the highway. In my Sequoia, I was very aware that that boat was back there at all times while I did 45 in a 55. I love the captains chairs in the back. When ever I take crowds somewhere people always comment on the back seats. I've had it up to about 115 MPH and with no interference from the CPU. The Sequioa stops you at 104 MPH and doesn't give you gas again until about 95 MPH. This is a much performance as you can have in an SUV. It is as much "fancy" as you can have in a truck. It's a Ford F-250 and a Audi A6 combined. CON: There is a squeak when I hit smished-smurfs in the road. I subconsciously avoid them.
Overall review: It's a fancy high tech fast ego feeding truck with back seats. I get a chuckle when I see Moms toting kids in one or and Armada. I ponder, do they ever punch it when the kids aren't with 'em?? I love this thing. The only way I will not have one is if I can afford and Audi S5 (or Audi S6) and a F-250 diesel at the same time. The system bumps. The nav system rocks. I love the cockpit feel. But be careful, cops don't like catching a big SUV going 98 MPH down the highway no matter how sunny the day is. (I thought I was only running about 80 MPH) I talked him out of the reckless driving and just got a ticket for 80 in a 55. He did yell at me a little though. Perfect driving records are meant to be broken with a story like this. I almost forgot. This thing rocks in the mud too. My Sequoia's traction control computer could get caught in an infinit loop and not let you climb out of ruts. The QX56 will let you decide if you want to get out the mature way or the fun way.Guess which I chose
