We picked up a brand new 2017 QX60 just over a week ago with 30 km out the door.
We've driven it exactly 2 times and it left us stranded today with under 200 km on the odometer.

Everything points to be the classic CVT stutter issues from the past:
- hesitation in throttle with no power
- car was shaking and stuttering
- as we approached a down ramp to the highway it wouldn't break 50km/h
- the entire car slowed to a halt in a middle of the ramp and wouldn't start up again

This car was purchased for my pregnant wife and future child... we wanted a safe and reliable vehicle like everyone here.
Needless to say, it was a very long day, we are very disappointed and frustrated/angry with what we have purchased.

It is currently at the dealership waiting for assessment... I just hope the dealer will do the right thing.
Will keep the group updated.

Dealership says its a P0204 cylinder 4 error and not CVT... and "shouldn't" happen again after dusting off the harness.

Would you accept this? New vehicle 200km ... horrible start with the Infiniti brand.

I'd ask for a thorough examination and explanation by dealer as to what caused the failure - Infiniti owes it to you.
From my previous tech experience this error can/will cause issue as you experienced - lack of engine power and an engine which dies suddenly and will not restart.
Have them check ECM functionality as well as the wiring harness again.
Speak to service manager if not satisfied with their response.

February 27, 2018 — A Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 continuously variable transmission (CVT) lawsuit has been made concerning all 2017-2018 Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 vehicles. The plaintiffs claim the continuously variable transmissions installed in the Pathfinders and QX60s are

happened, brought it to them and they gave the same response. After finding out about this
lawsuit I did mention it to my dealer, but they just denied it and told me it was for an earlier
model which again was a lie. They said I can guarantee its perfect, but than two days later it
happened again. I am happy to say that I am now one of the 450,000 owners who has gotten

fine. Beep continued, as it has been for months. Two weeks go by with me driving the Infiniti
until I was on my way home. The transmission got stuck, and the car stopped in the middle of
the road. Luckily no cars were coming, and I had time to get to the side of the road. I brought it
into Infiniti after the car was towed to my house. They denied everything and pretty much said
to me not to worry. I traded in my car. I owed $ 44,000, and they gave me $42,000 for the car.
My new company was able to build the extra $2,000 into my monthly payment and I am now
driving a newer car for cheaper. Peace out Infiniti” -Lisa Braunstein NJ.

When the first post of a new member is a cut and paste of caustic gibberish then you know this a post/poster to ignore just like the annoying pop up adds. They are just time buglers. This is regarding the dopey infinitiqx60issues post of course.

How is he a troll? the QX60 transmission is garbage. Went through 2 transmissions (both covered by infiniti) and it just went out for the 3rd time - outside of their bs settlement warranty this time. Well see how I feel about infiniti in the next couple of days,, but never buying an infiniti again thats for sure.

Oh I forgot it's a 2017..
Wow thats really unfortunate to hear, hopefully you can find a reputable shop to replace one if that is indeed the case. I knew about the CVT problems... but figured they were mostly happening on 2013-2014 models. Have you ever changed your fluid? I plan on doing mine at 60k miles. I don't trust "lifetime fluid" for anything that moves.
