Why is Your 2016 QX80’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Infiniti QX80 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Infiniti QX80 transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your QX80’s not even driveable.

2016 Infiniti QX80 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Infiniti? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Infiniti tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your QX80 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my QX80 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Infiniti QX80 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
