Owners looking at the 2022 INFINITI QX60 are normally spellbound by the beautiful design and potent powertrain. The automaker even claims it provides the “re-imagination of luxury.” However, the defective electrical system is leading to more than one issue.

Problems with the Electrical System

As a luxury model, everything should be in place before the 2022 Infiniti QX60 rolled off of the assembly line, but that’s not the case.

Take a look at this NHTSA review that points out serious issues:

“The car does not start once it is parked, ignition is turned off and car is locked. The car requires a jump in order for it to start. Once it is jumped, the car has malfunction alerts, the battery light is lit in the vehicle and some features of the car do not work (i.e. lane assist, auto feature light is flashing, but when pressed nothing happens).

My safety has been put at risk because the car could possibly shut off while I am driving, I could be stranded somewhere with my two young sons due to the car not starting. Once the car is shut off and locked, it does not restart. Luckily I have AAA and I have been able to get jumps 4 separate times over the past 2 weeks, but some are not that fortunate. I picked up the vehicle on February 14, 2022, so this should not be happening.

I leased the vehicle from Kings Infiniti and have taken the car to them to get serviced every single time. The 1st time, the battery was changed because they thought that was the issue. The 2nd time, the telematics control unit was changed because they believed that was issue. The 3rd time, the battery was changed because they discovered the connection to the negative terminal in the battery would pop out causing the battery to discharge and the car would not start. Today, was the 4th time I took to vehicle in to Kings Infiniti and they kept it because they want to determine what is wrong.

Also, when I brought my car in this morning, there was another person with the same 2022 Infiniti QX60 experiencing the same problems as me and he purchased his car on Monday. Since I now know this problem is not solely my car, I want to inform you so Infiniti can be made aware of this major issue. No one should require a jump to start a brand new car. Something is happening once the car is turned off, locked and then attempted to re-start. In addition, when this happens, you need to press the ‘open door’ button on the key to open the car because you are unable to open the door by simply touching the handle.”

Additional Complaints

However, this isn’t the only electrical problem. Here’s another Edmunds review to consider, “There are a couple of gripes that I do have though. One is with the infotainment system, Twice so far It’s frozen completely, both times the only way to resolved it was by forcing a reboot(Holding power button for 3-5 seconds). The other is the auto stop start is not as smooth as other cars I’ve driven. Very noticeable when the engine restart from a stop. I usually just turn that off when I hop in the car. As a Software Engineer myself, I understand the glitches with the infotainment system will most likely be resolved with an update.”

It probably won’t be long before there are recalls for some of these defects. In the meantime, NHTSA Campaign Number 22V111000, that shows INFINITI forgot to put a mounting bolt on the second-row seat track of affected vehicles. Because of this oversight, the seat track can move if a crash occurs, leading to major danger. It gives new meaning to the saying, “hold onto your seats.”

    I just purchased a new 2023 QX60 Luxe. It has three times in two days, lurched forward after being put into park and the door is opened. I can completely duplicate it by having the auto start/stop on and then put the car int park and open the door. This is a huge safety issue. Infiniti says that right now they can’t disable the auto idle start/stop because it is auto set to ON. This needs to be changed before someone is hurt! Anyone else with this problem?

    Apple air play keeps disconnecting, screen stops responding to touch. Can’t see my map.

    Otherwise I love this car! Great drive, comfort and responsive.

    2022 had in shop 3x bought QX60 on May. Two weeks after the purchase we noticed the back end swaying.
    After several visits they acknowledge the problem but have no idea how to fix the problem. Does anyone else have this problem ?

    I’ve had my 2022 qx60 for about 4 months now I’m having electrical problems with mine. I told my husband that the car was accelerating on it’s own but he thought it was just me but I knew better so I would ask him to drive it . It only did it sometimes so a few days ago he took it to get something to eat and my 2022 qx60 accelerated and the steering went crazy and he ended up in a pond of water the whole front end was under water he could have died or even a head on collision with another car these cars are not safe at least the one I have isn’t, it’s currently in the shop now, the infotainment keep blinking on and off, area where a/c is lights up some of the time, driver side mirror was stuck and wouldn’t fold in and when I got it to fold in it kept clicking until I pushed it to get it to start back working, also the driver assist and lane departure don’t always work all these problems was before the acceleration issue. I’ve taken my car into Infiniti for the electrical issues and they just tell me they can’t find out what’s wrong with it and the vehicle is too new to diagnose the problems but they have had other complaints about the same problems so I’m gonna have to wait for a recall on it and updates. I was so excited when I got it being it’s the new body style and everything but now I’m really regretting buying this especially after my husband experiencing the accelerating issue he could’ve died.

    I bought a 2022 qx60 june 2nd. Since then it had the check engine light on 3 times. It was in service for 2 weeks for some cvt issue. I picked it up and tire pressure warning came on for one tire. Had checked and all were fine. About 2 hours later another tire said low so now 2 tires. Went to have fixed at dealership. Left and it came back on 4 hours later. My screen keeps resetting and when I get gas it keeps stopping the pump ever 10 seconds at every gas station I’ve used. They want the car back in service today. I’ve had it a month it’s been in service more than half that time. I’m glad to see it’s not a me issue it’s the qx60 and something needs to be done. We shouldn’t be buying a new car and have any issues.

    Yeap, I agree! Brand New (6miles) on QX60 LUXE model, at first I knew I did not know how to operate the car but after doing some YouTube and reading the manual I found these issues were just WRONG: a) The courtesy light, sometimes it works and other times it does not. b) my seat belt indicator has worked once, now its always RED rather I have my seatbelt on or off. c)Tire sensors kept telling me that I have low tire pressure, had tire shop deflate and reflate the tire that worked about 2 days then alerts started coming back. d) the sensors for the cameras, I nearly have to right up on the curb before the cameras come of if they come on at all (what is the point of coming on when I have gotten that close already) e) oh i love this one, while connected to carplay with the radio off, i get a call after i end the call the radio turns on the FM (i dont listen to FM and who told it to turn the radio on anyway). f) wipes come on at random when it has not rained in 3 days. that is just to name a few
