The car emergency brake light came on, the vdc, and slip light flashes and the car loses brake power, felt like pads were gone but they were not. Once the car was turned off and back on lights went away and brakes came back. We have had brakes replaced, and problem continued. Also the service engine soon light came on and a mechanic told us we needed new cadalidic convertors and the service engine soon light is still on and off. Brake issue and light coming on has happened numerous times and it does not make a difference where or what speed. I have been driving down the interstate, in the neighborhood, parked, etc. It is happening more frequently and we have had it check out by multiple mechanics and their diagnostics are not picking up anything that is wrong. I have 3 small children and feel like I am going to have a panic attack every time we get into the car. Why is there no re-call yet?! if you are considering buying this car run and do not buy!.

While driving on the freeway I noticed that the tachometer continued rising instead of going up and down with the speed. By the time I got home the gauge was facing straight down, stuck in that position. I turned the car off and on to see if it would change the gauge, but nothing happened. Next I put the can in park, set the parking brake and hit the accelerator and the gauge began to slowly move backwards, after doing this a few times the gauge moved back around slowly. After doing this 5 times the gauge is just to the left of the red area. No problems with the battery, it is only 4months old. The transmission felt as though it was shifting propery, and there is not a check engine light on or any other problems besides the gauge.

On July 1, 2012 I was driving on highway 156 in winston-salem n. C. When my air condition, turn signal, speedometer stop working and check engine light can on. We were on vacation driving through north carolina from georgia. It was Sunday and we decided to stay overnight to have the Qx56 infinity checked out the next day for safety reasons. The next mourning on our way to the infinity dealership, the 4 wheel drive can on and locked up the transmission and stopped moving. We were on highway 156 downtown winston-salem on Monday mourning in rush hour traffic stopped. I manage to easy it off the road and called aaa to tow me to the dealership. I have taken this vehicle to other dealerships in jonesboro GA. And then in huntsville al before my trip because of the service light coming on. My family and I was very lucky we were not killed. I feel this vehicle got some very serious safety problems that must be check out before anything major happen that may hurt or kill someone. This 2004 Qx56 infinity have been recalled many times for repairs since I purchase it in 2004. Because of pass experiences with this vehicle, I feel there may be more serious defects in this vehicle.

My 2004 infinity q56 engine cuts off going down the road. Dealer is aware of a problem with several year models doing this same thing. All power is lost brakes , steering ect. Have had 4 computer boards replace and going back for another try oct. 25-2010. Infinity consumer affairs has been contacted but even though they are concerned they are not sure of a fix. What will it take to get help, a bad crash or two? if you type in problems with q56 cutting off while going down the road you will see that the internet has a group of people experiencing this same scary issue. Thank you for looking into this. I myself have had a few close calls trying to get the car off the road safely. First incident June 2007 last incident oct. 20 , 2010.

This letter is in reference to a previous complaint filed with Infiniti consumer affairs on December 3, 2009, regarding my vehicle shutting completely down, stalled out, not moving in the drive or reverse position at a busy intersection on a rainy stormy evening. This occurrence could have caused a serious accident or worse, a fatality. As a result of police assistance and having my vehicle towed directly to the dealership, to date there are no mechanical issues found by the dealer related to my vehicle shutting down at the intersection. My complaint contains additional serious vehicle issues regarding my headlights, instrument cluster/panel, and the fuse box under the hood. Both headlights on my vehicle suddenly stopped working at the same time. The bulbs were replaced and the headlight fuses were found to be functioning. The instrument panel/cluster light blinks constantly as I drive and the panel/cluster gauges are completely not functioning properly. Fuses have been checked under the vehicle’s hood and results indicate some of the 10 amp fuses are not functioning at all. I am concerned that there should have been a safety recall regarding my 2005 Infiniti qx 56, which appears to jeopardize my safety. There are no legitimate answers or explanations as to why my vehicle’s headlights are not working, the cluster/panel has malfunctioned, or why some fuses underneath my vehicle’s hood are not functioning. As a result of my vehicle’s expired warranty and mechanical failures, I have consumed a great deal of out-of-pocket expenses, including a traffic citation regarding my headlights. I am limited and inconvenienced to driving my vehicle at night as a result of my inoperable headlights which can cause me great harm. I am requesting that my situation be given serious immediate attention and resolution.
