2012 Infiniti QX56 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Infiniti's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Infiniti? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your QX56’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your QX56 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my QX56's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 QX56’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Infiniti's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
