Most Comfortable and reliable car we ever owned

This car has survived two cross country drives in two years. We are in our 70’s so comfort and reliability are king. It gets great marks for comfort....we would probably not have been able to walk after a long drive in our previous vehicle. Two critisims: The rear gate should be electric like 99.9% of other comparable vehicles. Second, we keep dropping stuff in the opening between the seat and the console. There needs to be some kind of covering. Or the console needs to be wider. [Dont mess with the seats; they are great!@]

Overall good SUV

First SUV I have owned. I was aware that it did not have an inside latch for the trunk/hatch or an automatic button to close.

Fun ride, very comfortable

This is a great car. Excellent pickup & handling with AWD. Extremely reliable and comfortable. My only complaint, and it is a minor one is that the cup holders on the doors are not wide so they can't hold a water bottle. Very roomy inside and my dog loves the view when the back seats are down. This is by far the best car I've ever owned!

Best performing car I’ve ever owned

I love the body style and the sports car performance. Wife wanted a traveling car, so the QX-50 met both our needs. The car was purchased in 2017 and knew Infinity was going to a 4 cylinder turbo front wheel drive and changing the body style. It’s not what I wanted so due to those reasons plus the extra rear leg room starting in 2016. It was the perfect car. Don’t like the fact that premium is required or the increased cabin noise. But overlook it for the performance characteristics. Maybe quieter tires will help some day. Also, rear brakes pads had to be replaced at 23,000 miles. Not like any car in my purchasing history but I understand the design principle.

Not impressed

I can see why Infiniti as a company is in trouble, the Stuart Dearlership is the worst in my opinion. I would not bring my car there.

I'm really enjoying the performance and comfort

It has met all of my needs. Great retirement car for myself. I feel safe and very comfortable in this car. It's performance is excellent.

No Problems

Great Crossover AWD Performance Luxury vehicle that has all the premium options that meets the needs plus many more that will never be use. When inside the interior makes you feel like you are a much larger car.

Great Luxury SUV

I had a G 35x and loved it But wanted an SUV . I looked at several but came back to the QX 50 when they increased rear seat room in 2016. Only three things I didn't like were 1. Gas mileage, could never seem to get above 17 MPG even with mostly expressway driving . 2. Road noise a little too much for being a luxury car, and 3. Passing on expressway, when I floor it to pass, it takes a second or two to ramp up. Other than that it was a great car.

Great power, Handles great in snow

We have owned an Infiniti sedan for several years and it is the best car we've ever owned, so the QX50 was a no-brainer when we needed to upgrade another vehicle. Bought it with about 40k miles on it for a smoking good deal. Got a huge snow storm the next day and she powered through it beautifully. I've never had a vehicle handle as well in the snow & ice. Lots of power for getting on the interstate & around town quickly. Smooth, quiet, tons of leg room for my adult children in the back seat. I absolutely love this car!
