Electrical system issues are among the top complaints received by the NHTSA from vehicle owners

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.”

    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
