That is interesting that you have both a QX and a Patrol. So I assume the price difference between the two must be significant enough to offer both vehicles there. Do you have the same engine in the Patrol?

Welcome to NICOclub, we are thrilled to have you as a new member!!!!

Welcome to NICOclub!

You need to host the photo on a site such as Photobucket, you can then post it here in the thread. If you need help let me know and I can get you on your way to posting photos!

Hello all. We recently purchased a new to us 2006 QX. So far we are very pleased. It is our first 'foreign' family car, but after our Aspen was a lemon we went this route. I just put a Gibson cat back on it and am still evaluating the MPG increase. :) I will be doing the DVD/NAV screen mod in the near future so I will researching that. Thanks for your help and I look forward to sharing and learning

Ours was the transmission. I know Mopar has some bad trannys but we felt like this was excessive :crazy:

Hello all - not new to the Infiniti\Nissan world (on my second Q45, had a Maxima as well), but just bought a QX56 yesterday. It's in EXCELLENT shape. A few rock chips up front and some pinstriping issues, but those are getting fixed along with 25% tint getting added next weekend.

2005 QX56
4WD
Jade\Willow

Today she got detailed:

Wash
Meguiar's Claybar
Meguiar's NXT TechWax 2.0
Meguiar's Ultimate Compound for the wheels (they were ROUGH).
Meguiar's Leather Conditioner (I know it's crap, all I have right now)

Next weekend she'll get some Meguiar's Gold Class Caranuba+.

Planned mods:
Billet grille
Wood dash kit (have to decide between Remin and B&I)
Dual zone CarPC and Android

Hi NICO, I just bought a white 2006 QX56 in Cali and brought it up to BC. My last vehicle was a '01 QX4 and it was a great little truck, it did everything i needed it to including towing a 24' boat! Unfortunately it met an early end on an icy morning. I just called the stealer about installing DRL's on the QX56 and they quoted me $399! Ouch, there's got to be a better way. Im thinking about putting in some LEDs and running it off of 12v switched power. Where's the best place to tap in? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone, my name is Bart and like the others I am new to the QX family. I purchased my QX back in late February for my own birthday gift. :)

I have a 2011 Moonlight White with Wheat interior. It has the Tech, Touring, and Theater packages with the 22" wheels. I got tired of everyone asking if I either wrecked my car or if I was at a certain place just because they saw a white QX. So I have added a few things. :woot:
Most noticeable I am now running 28" deep concave wheels on 295/25/28 tires.
20% ceramic window tint on the front windows
20% ceramic window tint on the moon roof
80% ceramic window tint on the windshield
LED fog lights 6000k
6000k Phillips bulbs from The Retro Fit Source
My next mods are when I get home from my business trip is to get my rear tail light lenses professionally tinted/cleared and a Borla exhaust hung on it.

Subject: Combined introduction with technical question

Hello Wes / all forum members,
thank you for welcoming.
;) vice versa to you, I own a QX 56, y.o.b. 2008, with now 78,600 mi on the mileage counter
I'm a German by birth, 60 years old and decided in March 2013 to leave Germany to life for the rest of my (hopeful many) days in Ghana, West Africa.
I bought the car in a good condition in Accra Ghana and drove it to my home near Kumasi.
I always gave the car to a shop called Japan Motors, Nissan Department in Kumasi to service it.
Unfortunately it turned out, that these people don't know what they are doing and, obviously can't read, because they filled in the wrong oil to the transmission box, besides some other problems they caused by the 80,000 mi inspection and maintenance.
I drove the car back home, approx. 25 mi. On the last few miles the car lost extremely speed and I couldn't speed it up. So I "crawled" the last few miles back home.
Since that time the car is standing unusable at home.
My question to the experts in this forum is: Can I solve the problem "only" by changing the oil or do I have to maintain the transmission.
I wouldn't call myself an expert, but what we call in Germany an "very interested hobby screwier". I found so. who is very experienced in car repairing/maintaining and willing to support me. Therefore I believe with some advices from the forum experts we'll be able to fix the car on our own.
Thank you very much for any help in advance.
Henry

Hi Guys,
New to the forum as well as just pulled the plug on my New to Me 2012 Infinity QX56.

I have been driving a Yukon XL since 2002. We had a little separation anxiety when I traded her in yesterday (I drove her for 150k Miles). Well I started up the QX56 and drove about one mile, and that passed, and a smile came across my face.

Wow, what a difference a herd of deer can make. She is Black on Black and fully loaded. She looks sweet and drives amazing. The acceleration is no slouch.

If she is as dependable as my Yukon, I'm gonna love this ride.

Hey All,

Not new to Nicoclub but new to the Armada fam. Previously had a 2000 Infiniti QX4, but upon its demise, went onto get a 2008 Nissan Armada. So far Im really into the roominess of the vehicle. Its a beast for sure.

Excited to find this site. I am a New Owner of a 2004 QX56 and love the styling, ruggedness, luxury and longevity of the Armada/QX56's.
I do have a few issues that I could use some help with.
One issue is my rear wiper is DOA, it doesn't work at all. The rear window locks, the door functions as it should. I know there isn't a simple fuse to replace, perhaps it's a relay (no one seems to know). How do I troubleshoot this? Will I need to replace the wiper motor? How to I test it before replacing it?
Also, my dash mileage and tachometer are doing the funky chicken dance and seem to fail when they are IN a bad mood. Sometimes they work just fine. I have already replaced the ECM relay (bought a couple ofrelay, one for the ECM and one for the fig lights (based on what I've learned about the relay's failing often). Any ideas for the rear wiper and the emotionally unstable tachometer and mileage LED?

Forgive the auto-correct fig lights. Should obviously be fog lights. Also...."couple of relays" instead of "ofrelay". Usually catch those first.
