2014 Infiniti QX80 Reliability - Consumer Reports
This very large SUV has a plush, luxurious, and quiet interior. The QX80 has a steady and supple ride, but handling is ungainly. The seven-speed automatic transmission and 400-hp 5.6-liter V8 provide smooth and strong performance but it gobbles premium fuel, returning just 15 mpg overall. The tall step-up into the cabin is an ungracious affair. Cargo volume is plentiful, and there's a usable third-row seat.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
