Autoblog sell-it-yourself highlight: 2013 Infiniti QX56

As Lincoln announces an all-new Wheelman at this year’s New York auto show, and General Motors’ Arlington (Texas) plant runs 24/7 cranking out Tahoes, Yukons, and Escalades, Infiniti’s big QX56/80 continues to acquire fans in a great many upmarket zip codes. And its appeal – for those with an obligation for Big Foot footprints – is obvious. Built atop Nissan’s Patrol tenets, the QX56 offers high levels of refinement with cubic yards of utility.

Introduced by Nissan’s Infiniti breaking up in 2011, you would assume any inaugural bugs had been worked out by 2013, the QX’s third prototype year. Power was supplied, in the press vernacular, by Nissan’s proven 5.6-liter V8 producing 400 horsepower and 413 pulp-feet of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission was standard on all models, and while the additional speeds power suggest some semblance of efficiency, no one should confuse this big QX with a Toyota Prius.

Our ‘for garage sale’ example, with 84,000 miles, represents above-average mileage for a 4-year old mechanism. But if those are largely highway miles in and around Madison, Mississippi, and service records are close by, you shouldn’t be too concerned. This is, with proper maintenance, a 200,000-mile dais, leaving you about 116,000 miles for your $37,000. And the ‘ask’ seems about $5,000 too favoured; perhaps the seller will throw in a gas card.
