I have a 2007 QX56 and love it as well. Same thing has happened to me, several times now with the windows going down. We hang our keys on a hook at night, so the pocket deal is not the issue. I recently changed the battery in my wifes keyfob, could this have something to do with it?

Before you had your Catalytic converters replaced...was your truck letting out a light white smoke from the tail pipe and not getting over 35 - 40 mph? The reason I'm asking is because my truck is experiencing these problems and the dealership informed me that the catalytic converters need to be replaced along with the engine but I've had two other mechanics to tell me to that it may only be a problem with the Catalytic converters. Do you have any suggestions for me?

I'm currently in this hell right now. My car is totally locked up, waiting on a tow truck. Its happened once before and I was able to get it started by shaking the wheel and using the key. Today, I had no luck. I've told the dealership about the issue and they've checked it out and couldn't reproduce it. This time I video'd the issue with my iphone so if they have a problem reproducing it they can watch the video. I'm hoping the replace the entire unit.
#106 of 135 2011 QX56 Platinum Graphite - color
Nov 20, 2011 (3:18 pm)
I have a 2011 QX56 in Platinum Graphite and live in cold weather (below freezing). I have had the car only a couple of weeks and noticed this morning that the panel just above the headlight and the front bumper appear to be darker in color than the hood and sides of the vehicle. There is quite a difference in the color in fact. I had the car a few weeks and am just noticing it now so I think that it may have something to do with the cold temperatures. The panel above the headlight and the bumper are plastic/fiberglass and the hood and sides of the vehicle are metal. Has anyone else noticed this color variation ? I am hoping that the vehicle didn't have some bodywork done to it that was not disclosed to me (I think that is highly unlikely) but there is a real signigicant difference in the color that I am seeing. Please reply if you have seen the same thing on your 2011 Platinum Graphite. Thanks

I just bought a '12 in the same color and noticed the same thing. My observation is that the color difference is exacerbated under specific lighting conditions (i.e., under the fluorescent lights in my garage), which suggests that the material/paint combinations have significant sensitivity to light sources. It's called metamerism (illuminant metameric failure, to be precise), and while the color differential on the QX56 is bigger than I've seen on other vehicles, it's probably not a sign of anything amiss.
My two cents.
#108 of 135 QX56 2006 Vehicle Leveling Air Compressor
Dec 05, 2011 (4:10 pm)
I continue to have an intermittent roaring noise coming from underneath my vehicle. Infinity Mechanics have not been able to find the problem after several visits to the shop in the past year and a half. My husband has been doing research on the vehicle and we are wondering if anyone has had a problem with the Vehicle Leveling Air Compressor making a roaring noise?

#109 of 135 2012 QX56 Navigation problems
Dec 06, 2011 (3:03 pm)
Navigation in new QX only displays state road numbers. No US Hwys/Interstates. Dealership is baffled and of no help. They just state they've not seen this situation before. Called Infiniti and their Navigation assistance dept did not have any data available for the 2012 QX and very little on the 2011. anyone....?

I just checked today...mine shows US highways on wider views. Very odd!
#111 of 135 2011 QX56 Fuel Economy
Dec 21, 2011 (8:23 am)
The Info button on the screen shows my fuel economy at 11.9 MPG. My own approximation was about 12.5 MPG. I do mostly street driving but live in a rural non-congested area. I was just wondering if I should expect better fuel economy and if so what I might ask from service? It is a great vehicle regardless of the gas mileage; just wondering if it should be better
