My name is Joseph. My family has owned our 1999 QX4 since late 2000. It was recently passed down to me and ofcourse I have always wanted it. The one thing I have to say about my infiniti is that it is one of the best cars you will ever purchase. My QX4 has 248,000 miles and still, for the most part, runs smooth. Ofcourse With the time, there have been repairs that need to be done, but it has been the most reliable car we have ever owned. I recently had problems with the transmission and shocks, but other than that, its great! I would expect that from any car over 200,000 miles. When i come up with the money, I will purchase another one with less miles. I can always rely on my QX4.

I just bought at 2001 QX4. It has 104k miles on it and it looks brand new on inside and out! It has a smooth ride and the only thing I have noticed so far is the light behind the clock is out and I am trying to find out how to change it. So far, I am in love

They are not too difficult except for the passenger side which you have to remove the battery. Find a D2S bulb on Ebay for a fraction of the price of the factory bulbs and wear rubber gloves, disconnect the battery since it is high voltage and make sure you put the clips in correctly on both sides of the bulb. It's about a 45-60 min job.

Hello. I have a 2000 qx4 truck that i drive an hour to work and back home for 5 days a week. I am trying to find out how I can get better gas mileage out of it. I am putting a total of 300+ dollars in gas each month, via the 12-14 mpg I am getting. I am doing mostly highway driving. I do have over 350,000 miles on it though and i do like the truck and do not want to part with it, but it is killing me in gas. If anyone has any ideas of what I can do to improve the mpg, please let me know. If not, I do understand.....Thanks!!!

Get rid of any extra weight in the truck, check your tire pressure frequently (and maybe add a few psi to the recommended psi on your label on your door jam, without going over the sidewall maximum) and you may want to experiment with different gas to see if any savings make up for any extra price. Try pure-gas.org to find a station if you want to try ethanol free gas. It's more expensive but your mpg will likely be better.
The biggest factor is to not drive aggressively but that may not be possible on a busy commute without causing road rage.
