Infiniti QX60 reliability - better info

I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that made the differences between cars clearer. So a few years ago I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now updates actual repair frequencies, not just dots, four times a year, to track cars closely as they age.

We've had excellent participation by Infiniti owners, and I'd similarly like to provide solid stats for the QX60. Just a matter of getting enough owners involved.

Participants simply report repairs the month after they occur on a one-page survey. When there are no repairs, they simply report an approximate odometer reading four times a year, following the end of each quarter.

To encourage participation, participants receive full access to all results, not just those for the QX60, for free. I'll share results for the QX60 in this thread after each update.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Infiniti JX and Nissan Pathfinder to include owner experiences through June 30, 2013. (Another source is about 14 months behind.)

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2013 JX and Pathfinder: 26, low (meaning few repairs)

We'll have further updates in November and February.

26 trips a year? or 26 out of 100 cars?

Thats not too bad then considering it's a new car and new cars tend to have more problems then ever. I bet if we were to see Pathinder stats they would be bad.

I combined both the JX and Pathfinder in these stats. So the Pathfinder isn't having many problems.

wouldn't it be a better idea to seperate them? since most of the pathfinder issues are likely transmission issues that don't really exist on the JX?

thats what i was just thinking.. I've been on the Pathy forum, its more like 95 cars out of 100... even people who don't have the 'judder' are taking pathys in becasue normal CVT operation gives them a judder, just not the judder that implodes your tranny

cool concept though, keep us updated

I think people not being used to the CVT system since it was their first experience though there was a problem, making the real problem seem worse as it seems to be connected in some way. At least now it's fading away.

2013 Pathfinder owners have started to report quite a few transmission issues, so with this month's update I will be separating them. Many thanks to this forum for making sure I noticed this issue!
