QX is basically the same as a loaded LE Armada, except for upgraded leather, wood dash, HIDs, some extra chrome, a different front end, and smart cruise.PumaFiveOh said:Well it looks like I'm pretty close to trading in my 04 Armada LE....but I wanted to see what others thought about my choices. Also can QX56 owners tell me how they like their SUV's so far? Thanks!
My favorite options in order....right now are as follows:
1. Used 2004-2005 QX56
2. New 2005-2006 Armada
3. New / Used 05 Infinity M35 (M45)
4. Somthing completely different, some kind of luxury sedan?
Please let me know what you think, as of right now I am scheduled to go look at a few low mileage 04 QX56's and one 05. Although I'm not sure if getting a QX56 is the right choice or not. Any advice or info on them would be nice. Thanks!
The '04s QX had more sound proofing than the '04 Armada. The '05 Armada added the sound proofing and available backup camera.
Which would I get? Whatever the best deal was. You may get a better deal on a used '05 QX with low miles as some of the depreciation will be out of it.
I doubt you will find to many used M45/35s. I assume you mean the new '06 model as they just changed in '06 to the new body style and thers is no such thing as an "05. It is a totally different beast from the Mada. I own a G35, similar to the M. I use them for totally different reasons. I couldn't recommend one over the other without knowing what you want it for, etc. I'd figure out Sedan vs. SUV, then worry about the cars in that category first. M is a sweet ride though. Other lux sedan would be the new Lexus GS, the new BMW 5 series, and the E class. Good luck.
