QX50's new VC Turbo was a bit weird and we all know CVT is weird (and not fun). QX50's exterior/interior is beautiful plus the leather felt much nicer than our leathers in QX30.Great news on the seats! I knew they would take care of you.
About the QX50...nice interior and I love the technology idea of the engine versitility, but they dropped the ball by not making it as powerful as many other four-cylinder turbos out there already. The 2.0 AMG, Honda’s new 2.0 turbo, Cadillac’s 2.0. There are actually several more that beat it in power...then add the CVT to make it a little more boring. It’s nowhere as fun as driving the QX30 and nowhere near the power of the EX35/EX37. They did a lot right with that EX as evidenced by longevity of the design and the VQ HR. One of the most reliable cars I’ve ever had.
I’m looking forward to infiniti tuning the output of the 2.0 VC a bit more and dropping that in another vehicle with a more exciting transmission.
Congrats again on the seats and keep a close eye on them to see if whatever that was starts to happen again.
