#432 of 786 04' QX56 vs 05' Armada
Feb 22, 2005 (8:27 pm)
Per the last post, I am interested in a 2005 Armada LE w/ Tech Pkg and Entertainment. Local Dealers have 04' Infiniti QX56 that they will sell at or below invoice, but will still be ~$7K More then the Armada.
Did anyone else face this decision and choose the Armada? The QX56 may have a better value long term, but then again, it's already technically 1 year old and cost a good $7K More. I plan to get an extended warranty anyway, so the Infiniti Warranty is not a selling point.
I am looking to get the Black Onyx,which with the Chrome Front and Year Bumpers on the Armada, looks pretty striking.
I have 2 Small Boys and a 3rd on the way, so maybe the harder leather in the Armada may be better.
#433 of 786 Fuel Tank size of QX56?
Feb 24, 2005 (6:22 am)
We purchased our 05' QX56 in January and we have zero problems with it. I must admit that I love the fact that I've only seen 7 QX56's on the road since they came out last year. Oh, my question, I'm on my 9th fill up, and I've never been able to squeeze more than 25 gallons of gas in the tank. The specs say that it has a 28 gallon tank. Is there a 3 gallon reserve after the needle is on empty?

I really like this truck but there are way too many problems. I'm going to wait for the new Sequoia based LX from Lexus. I'd rather pay $10K more and have the doors shut properly. Some of these postings are way too understanding. I'd be really upset if I spent $50K for a lemon. JD Power should have info next year on the QX. Shouldn't be pretty.

Fuel capacity does not always mean the size of the tank. Some car makers include the fuel that is in the fuel line and the engine. That is why they don't say the fuel tank holds 28 gallons, they say the fuel capacity is 28 gallons.

I usually run my cars out of gas one time in it's life, but I'm not getting caught filling this one from the bright red container in this town! I have run it down beyond the empty mark and taken on 26 gals. The following is taken from the owners manual -
"The light comes on when the fuel level in the fuel tank is getting low. Refuel as soon as it is convenient, preferably before the fuel gauge reaches E (Empty). There will be a small reserve of fuel in the tank when the fuel gauge needle
reaches E (Empty)."

Does anyone know if Infinti offers money/rebates back to the dealers for cars that are classified as demos (up to 4k miles)as an incemtive to get rid of them?

I bought a 2005 QX56 yesterday with all the options except for ICC for $50,750.00. The car is AWESOME. Just AWESOME. My kids used the car seats in all the possible configuration. Sat on them to watch DVD, reconfigured the seats for a bed and they had their best mobile sleep. My wife was full of smiles on the way. The car is AWESOME.

I just got my first taste of traction control. After last nights 8" snowfall, I was on my way down a winding road when the backend began to slide out to the right on me. Before I could start compensating, the left front wheel went into full antilock and pulled the QX right back into shape. Neat stuff!!!
