Resources for the Repair and Maintenance of your Infiniti
The rear power door may not open or close properly, or make a grinding noise from inside the rear trim panel. If this occurs our technicians recommend to check for loose or damaged hardware at the rear door motor. Replace damaged hardware as required and use bolt retaining compound when reassembling the door motor hardware.
A brake pulsation or steering wheel vibration may be noted when braking, especially at highway speeds. Our technicians tell us that replacing the front brake backing plates, resurfacing or replacing the front brake rotors, and inspecting the front brake pads and caliper hardware and replacing as necessary will generally correct this concern.
The mass air flow (MAF) sensor may fail, resulting in drivability issues and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light.
All wheel drive vehicles may develop a groaning type noise from the steering rack when centering the steering wheel after turning right at slow speeds, most noticeable when driven from a cold start. Our technicians tell us a revised steering rack is available to correct this concern.

Brake Caliper Bolts May Not Be Tight
The mounting bolts for the front brake calipers may not be tight. If the bolt backs out, the brake caliper could separate or rotate away from the bracket and the brake will fail at that wheel. It could also damage the wheel and cause a flat tire. Either condition could result in a crash. Dealers will tighten the mounting bolts to ensure they are secured.
Drive Shaft Bolts May Not Be Tight
The bolts that attach the drive shaft to the transaxle and differential may not be tight. If the bolts come loose, the drive shaft may come off the vehicle, which could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the drive shaft bolts and tighten them to the proper specification. The recall began May 27, 2003. The Nissan recall number is ITB03-032.

Infiniti Owners' Reviews
I love my 1994 G20, manual transmission. The check engine light used to come one and I used to take it to the dealer and they said they would clean out the hoses. That told me instantly that it was the less than premium gasoline I was using at the time. Since then I only use premium gasoline and the check engine light never came one again. Hope this helps someone with this same problem.
I have a 2005 QX56 which I bought brand new and the only major problems I had was the lift gate motor went out after my 6 year of having. It was covered by my extended warranty. I had to replace both headlights and fog lights at seperate times because the seals had warn and they were getting condensation inside of them which was covered under warranty at time also. My AC went out under the extended warranty and it took them almost 60 days to replace part because it had to come from Japan. Some type of regulator that they had to remove the front dash to get too. Other than that the vehicle has been great.
I love my infiniti qx4 2002. This is my second one!
It is quite expensive to maintain but it's worth the expense.
Presently it's been diagnosed with po420 catalytic converter problem....my heart is sad....but still love my baby.
Wish they did not discontinue the model.
It is a very durable vehicle. I once saw 450,000 mileage accrued from QX4 4WD. It was still running, I fell in love....
My QX4 Infinity has been giving me nothing but problem it's a 2001 the code pc160/code 300 multipy misfire 02 sensor / right cataylac converter.is this car worth the cost of repair?
Excellent vehicle in all aspects except for the transmission has issues finding the right gear during quick acceleration and the Paint Sucks too Soft if you breathe on it you have swirl marks, No not because of my breath (it's possible :)) Other than those two items would definitely recommend it over Lexus or BMW get so much more power and car for less money.
