So far (2600 miles) have been very satisfied with my new QX50. In fact would consider it among my top 5 so far. I am a little surprised that so many of the features (Pro Assist and Pro Active, and fog lights and heads up display), must be reactivated each time the car is started. Also why no snow mode is available with AWD. My only other issues so far are the welcome lighting (under car) does does activate until the door handle is opened, and twice now the audio system will not turn on until I have turned the engine off, opened the door and restarted the car. (I will be checking in with survice dept on this issue.) I have been amazed at how few QX50's I've seen on the road, but I guess here in Minneapolis the QX60 is their most popular model. Expecting a lot of snow tonight so will be trying it out..I did replace tires with Michillin Xi2's and new TSW wheels for winter.
