Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Performance, room, price, a lot of standard goodies, great third row seating
Cons: No auto lock, more wood , locking fuel cap
Advice: Great SUV for the money if you are looking for a lot of room and the best tow this is itThe Best SUV for the price. Before I decided I test drove the 07 Escalade , GL450, 06 Navigator, and Lexus LX470. Escalade -- GM did a good job on the new model, but the third seat was horrible also no real wood and no auto windows, cheap plastics and carpet for the price --not worth the almost 20k over the QX GL450- great engineering, not enough room, everything extra, NO leather- you have to pay $1,600 extra. To get the same options as the QX it will cost around 72k. Too much for a first year car.. Navigator--nice but after driving it for a day the QX felt better with more low end power and better handling, also the navigation was a pain( the screen was smaller as well) and finally- what's with the fake aluminum look on the dash for 67k they can’t afford the real thing? LX470--was my last test, after driving all the others I can honestly say that I would never buy the LX-- No power - compare with the others, unusable third seat ( even my kids didn’t' like sitting back there) they also do not fold flat, the ride felt like i was driving an electric car.. As far as looks--it seems that it came back from the 60's. I did like the interior but for the price it did not even make the list. I really do not understand all the good reviews that this SUV gets from all the 'experts'.
Pros: Theater system
Cons: nissan's navigation system - horrible - Lexus seems to have all others beat.
Advice: Great vehicle - also look at Lexus LX470 though this one is larger - handles snow great but I haven't had it back to west virginiaThis is a large, comfortable people mover. The vehicle is finished nicely, great paint, great comfort inside. This vehicle handles like a truck - remember this is a very large SUV it's not going to handle like a MB S Class. This is the worst navigation system that I have ever had. It's slow, no touch screen and data input is a task. The theater system is great, but to be honest never use it - I have no children. If I did - they better love it for the price Infiniti charges. All in all - nice vehicle, great for long trips.
