I'm about 30K miles into my 32.5K mileage lease. I've had nearly the same complaints throughout my ownership since February 2017. See my post about city stop-and-go driving here: https://www.infinitiqx30.org/forum/q...c-driving.html
However, a city in Florida isn't the same as a city elsewhere. I've used this car for about five months in Maryland (D.C. traffic, ugh), about a year in Florida (woo, smooth flat roads), and now I have the car in Boston (small, compact, awfully bumpy roads).
This car is definitely perfect for Boston. The small size, 360 degree cameras, auto park, heated seats, LED lights, and low-end torque are all ideal for real urban city driving. I go over the crappy roads like a champ.
My complaints (your own experiences will vary) about the car are now limited to the following:
- subpar gas mileage
- higher than average insurance premiums relative to other cars in its class
- the right side mirror doesn't return to its default position quick enough after shifting from reverse back to drive; you have to actually drive in order for the mirror to return to its default position (this is annoying when trying to reverse and then drive out of a parallel parking spot when you're parked on the left side)
- very bad Infiniti service center experience at nearly all Infiniti dealerships (seriously, why can't they just copy what Lexus/BMW/Mercedes-Benz do?)
Am I going to miss the car when I turn it in? Absolutely. I can't find another premium car in any category that offers the level of tech/features and unique design for the amount I pay for my lease.
Am I going to be happy when I turn it in? Absolutely. I can't wait to find another premium car that offers an improvement on the level of tech/features and unique design that I paid for for my QX30. I've got my eyes set on the new A-Class, but I doubt it will lease as nicely as the QX30. Alternatively, I'm going to consider the QX50.
