Default Any Infiniti Q56 owners?

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a new 2012.
I've read all the good stuff, but hard pressed to find anything negative.
8,500 lb towing should serve all my needs.

Test drive one this weekend, better than the Lexus's I've been driving over the years.
Pretty good deals on the end of year stock, $9,000-$10,000 off sticker brings the lightly loaded ones down into the upper 50's.

Any thoughts?
Thanks!

I had an 2007 Armada...same as your getting ready to buy. Good truck for towing. It towed 9500 lbs.

All you are paying for is upgraded trim. Nissan is probably gonna redo there line next year.

My dad had one, my brother and he now both drive Armada's. He LOVED that Infiniti. No issues whatsoever with it. Only reason he got out of it is because it was a lease and they wanted wayyyyy toooo much to buy it off of them. He told me the other day, he's getting another Infiniti next year

I believe the new ones are totally different than an armada which previous generations are based on. The new ones derive from the Nissan patrol which is like a landcruiser. Do some research I think the new q 56 is gonna be a great vehicle.

They are some sweet looking vehicles - gangster style.

The new ones are a different vehicle than the Armada.

I know nothing negative about them - other than the obvious gas guzzling capability.

What truck based SUV gets mileage? Really not an item of discussion.

Picked it up 2 days ago. 156 miles later and I love it. What a terrific ride.
Wife wants me to sell her 2013 Suburban LTZ and buy her one too. If that doesn't happen, I'm guessing I'll be driving a Surburban before the weekend is gone....

Should have checked out the Nissan Armada Platinum. Tricked out about like a optioned Infiniti Q56 for less money. A customer was looking at the Q56, and then walked onto a Nissan lot and saw the Armada Platinum...after driving the Nissan, she bought it and saved over 15 grand.

I looked at both, but they're not close to the same vehicle. Different engines, better leather and wood trim. Fit and finish of the exterior is also better imho.

Now, don't get me wrong, both are very nice. But it's like comparing a Chevrolet to a Cadillac.
