I am so sorry. My QX56 was my third Infiniti and was sold on them. The first two never cost me a dime over routine maintenance. The QX56 required too many trips to the dealership between maintenance, recalls, and other problems. The problems were never cheap, but never cost me that much at one time. I just recently traded my 2006 in for a MB 350 Bluetec and could not be happier. Got 748 miles on one tank with 1/8 tank left before refill. It worked out to a combined city/highway of 30mpg.
#94 of 148 06 QX 56 intermittent roaring
Jan 09, 2011 (5:09 pm)
I bought a new QX56 in 2006. I have been very happy with the vehicle and love the additional room inside. Comfortable vehicle. I've had this intermittent roar which sounds like it's coming from underneath the vehicle for almost a year now. It's happening more often as time passes. I've had the vehicle back to the dealership at least 4 times for this problem but they never hear anything. Is anyone experiencing this problem and if so, what is the cause and has the dealership helped you?
#95 of 148 grinding noise
Feb 04, 2011 (7:51 am)
I have a 2006 qx56 whenever I brake and slide on ice or even fishtale on ice it makes a loud grinding sound. It seems as if it is right under my feet. At first i thought it was the brakes locking and then the sliding but then it did it when i was accelerating but fishtaling.
Any ideas? Thanks!

That is your LSD (limited slip differential) kicking in. It's a good thing. Basically, the LSD kicks in when one tire starts spinning and transfers that power to the other wheel that has grip. I know the grinding noise sounds concerning, but it's a good safety feature meant to assist you when you loose traction while driving.

Thank you so much! I was concerned it was unsafe.

You guys who own 2006 QX56 Infinities have any idea what the roaring sound in my vehicle is? I've had the brake sound but knew that was okay but this roaring concerns me. It's not a constant but intermittent roar and sounds like it's underneath the vehicle. Any ideas or anyone had this happen? Still waiting for someone who knows what this may be. Thanks.

Mountaincity - What is the outside temperature when the roaring starts?
Does it happen when the engine is cold?
Sounds like the radiator fan kicking in and out. The fan will pull max. air when the engine is cold, but should quite down within a mile of running.
If the temperature outside is hot, which I find hard to believe this time of year, the fan will cycle back and forth from free-wheeling to roaring.

after having used the child safety lock, we can't unlock the door, not even from the outside door handle. Did you have this problem? what did you do to fix it.Is it a problem with the BODY CONTROL MODULE ( BCM)?

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?
