I have a 2011 QX - I drive a lot - but all regular road driving. at 67,000 (2 years) the dealer tried to send me home after all diagnistics checked out fine and I insisted they keep the car one more day - outside in the cold - the next day they told me I needed a new Engine - had I taken the car back and driven a few weeks it would have been out of warranty (apparently 70,000 miles) . That said, the dealer said they could only give me customer service line to request warranty extension on other parts (pretty sure I got a lemon here) - which they denied my request. Now, at 90,000 miles , my catalytic converter is apparently shot - this time "just out of warranty" - r u kidding me!! On top of that I'm having crazy steering problems - they told me at my last oil change - after I had just paid to have allignment done a month before - that I needed a "tie rod" replaced" which would "require allignment" (do you think they could have noticed this a month ago?. Then he told me I could wait until winter was over - but now my steering feels "loose" and crazy and I can't make sharp turns without crazy shaking. I wanted to drive this thing to 250,000 - thought I was buying a quality car that could do that.
We just took our '08 QX56 to the shop today to have the suspesion inspected as the ride is bordering on unsafe at highway speeds if you encounter any bumps or small potholes. Upon hitting a small bump, the car veers off track and you need to recover to maintain control. The service dept found nothing wrong and sent my wife on her way dismissing the complaint as "normal performance". I'm not satisfied with this answer. Please reply if you have a possible answer and/or are having a similar experience.
