2001 Infiniti QX4 from North America


Too much to maintain


Nice luxury if you have the money to keep up with the problems that come with the car; if you have patience with the computer problems.

General Comments:

Good inside, OK sound system.

2001 Infiniti QX4 3.5L V6 from North America


Unbelievably durable, great second hand buy


- 1 brake light bulb.

- A/C stopped working at about 110,000 miles.

General Comments:

This car is bulletproof. Let me put it to you this way, it was the first car for 3 different teenagers. I was one of them, the engine was redlined almost daily from day one, shifted the automatic like a manual when we felt like it, in 2wd mode it does burnouts for days, and I personally drove it through a river that caused water to go above the headlights briefly... and this little SUV has never missed a beat.

I was also working as a part time technician at the Infiniti dealer, so I did most of the maintenance on it, and even THEN I missed a scheduled oil change or two out of laziness. But this car simply will not die.

My parents refuse to ever get rid of it because it is the only car to not give them a headache. So if you want a reliable, safe, good all weather used car for your kids to beat up and you not worry about... get a QX4 or a Nissan Pathfinder of the same year 2001-2003. These were the best years for this model, because it has the MUCH improved 3.5L V6.

Another big reason why this engine is better is not only it's 70+ more horsepower than the old 3.3L... the 3.5 doesn't have a timing belt... so all you have to do to it is change the oil and maybe new sparkplugs at 100k or so... That's IT!

The only other maintenance issue with these models is that they go through front brakes relatively quickly, every 25k or so... but I think it's a fine tradeoff considering how durable the rest of the car is.

I predict after a nuclear winter, the only survivors will be cockroaches, and Infiniti QX4s.

Reliable, stylish and an enjoyable drive


O2 sensors were the main thing.

Battery shortly after I got it.

General Comments:

I think the Infiniti QX4 is a fine automobile.

Hardly had any problems with it, and it still runs smooth at higher km levels.

Very comfy and nice interior, and has proved very reliable, even starting without an issue in -35 Celsius weather.

Dealer service proved very pricey, would not go back to dealer for servicing.

Little high on gas and insurance, but gas not as bad as comparably sized SUVs.

Overall great truck, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Don't get ripped-off by buying the navigation system


Overall, the vehicle is good quality. The "rip-off" is the navigation system. I paid $2,000 for a system that will not even cover the entire USA. It really should be marketed as a "limited" navigation system. By the way... it takes 8 more CDs to cover the US at a cost of $180 each. I feel taken!

General Comments:

Handles fairly well, not much interior comfort room, engine power OK, styling good.

No offense, but if only you could realize just how much you are asking for here. Having the WHOLE country on one CD, whew! No car manufacturer does that as far as I know. What you're saying is that you want every street, highway, and alley on ONE CD to be read off by a single small navigation unit. That is truly impossible.

I recently purchased a 2001 SUV Infiniti Qx4 and I too am very pleased with the overall performance - however, I too noticed the seats are a bit short - since I am of med height and weight - I wonder how would a larger person fit into the front seats comfortably - my only complaint thus far -

No navigation system currently in production has the WHOLE united states on one CD.

Most Navigation systems are now DVD-based and cover the entire country in one or two disks. Having 8 disks in the QX4's system was one of the weaknesses pointed out in Edmund's 2001 review of that car.

In order for manufacturers to have the entire country on one disk there has to be more storage space than a CD has. This can be accomplished with a DVD. Infiniti is now offering a country-wide DVD map in many of its models.
