Definitely a winner! by QuismO, San Francisco on 04/24/2006. Trim: 1997 Infiniti QX4, Owned 6 years.
Pros: The looks are great, it has the true ability to be utilized in many ways. I bought this vehicle for its 4WD capabilities as i needed a car for the snow. It handles the snow with EASE whether it be packed, powder, or icy. I was driving home through the sierra nevadas during a major snow storm while my buddy's highlander started sliding around a bend nearly going off the mountain, while the QX4 didn't slide or lose traction one bit...and this is with HT (half terrain), not All terrain tires!!! Cargo space is great, problems are minimal, 4WD is able to be engaged on the fly under 50 MPH. My manager (6'3" 300lbs), said it is surprisingly spacious, more spacious than his ford explorer.
Cons: The engine could use more power as many others have said, but it is more than tolerable, the torque is more than enough for this vehicle.
Overall review: Great, SOLID, and well-rounded SUV, pleases the superficial, as well as the practical. I have 145,XXX miles on my QX4, still runs as well as when i bought her a few years back, no oil leaks whatsoever, all shop work has been maintenance work, never a problem. Rear cargo area is enormous as rear seats can fold down to create a FLAT rear surface. Rear liftgate is great, better than rear gates that swing open to the side...the QX4's liftgate opens upward which can protect you from the rain/snow when loading/unloading cargo/groceries etc.

Infiniti Rules! by Cybern from El Paso, TX on 09/17/2002. Trim: 1997 Infiniti QX4, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Trouble free and rugged. Exceptionally quiet ride and good handling characteristics. Great looking!
Cons: Engine had too little power. Newer models have better performance. Back seat room a bit lacking.
Overall review: I have owned several Infinitis and keep coming back because of the quality. I will purchase another Infiniti this year, probably an M45, or perhaps a G35 if not a QX4. The value that Infiniti delivers is unrivaled, I believe, because they compare favorably with most luxury cars, but cost thousands less than comparable models. And resale value has always been exceptional.

Cons: INTERRIOR COULD BE MORE APPEALING. SHOULD CHANGE IT'S EXTERIOR LOOK TOO.
Overall review: I LOVE IT.
