Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I drive approx. 500 mi. per week; 75% interstate. Comfort, fit and trim, acceleration, shifting, passing power, reliability, are all excellent. Although I'd love to have regular gas payments, this car takes premium. I have oil changes, and all other basic maintenance performed every 3-5K miles. Breaking down on the highway would be very disappointing; never an issue with this car. I assure you I am very grateful. I don't see many Q45's around, and that's a good thing (same cars out there by the hundreds in the DC metro area (bland)). The exterior finish is impressive as well (black onyx). I would highly recommend this vehicle for long trips or just every driving (hopefully away from the congestion). The reliability is truly one of the best I've ever experienced. Take care of them, and they'll take care of you w/o breaking the bank."

Pros: "Handles like a dream, true driver's car."

Cons: "No auto lock's when put in gear, key fob program"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Handles like a dream on the back roads I travel, which are extremely curved. The ride is one of the best. Had Jag XJL and this is much better.Only thing have to remember to lock doors; they do not auto lock when put into gear or reach 15mph as do lots of other vehicles. One of the best cars I've ever owned as far as driving,comfort,and reliability. Sad it was discontinued. It was car of it's own with no sister car, like the newer Infiniti's that are Nissan's."

"This is the one and only Infiniti I have ever owned. The Q45 is top of the line. If you can handle the Premium gas, it's worth the buy. One of the most comfortable and reliable vehicles I've ever owned. Acceleration, transmission, cornering, cruise speed, is all outstanding at this point. I didn't get the Premium edition, and personally don't believe I needed it (GPS/Back Up video). I purchased used however, it looked absolutely new when I picked up. Have received numerous accolades for the overall appearance and quality ride. Was around 60K new; I got for quite a bit less (during the higher gas period; though I consider it still ridiculous). Would definitely purchase again."

"Great car, great power (except the brief lag at times when taking off hard from a stand still). Extremely reliable, but NEVER, EVER drive this car in snow if you can help it! Fortunately, I live in the Atlanta area, so snow is not much of a concern, except for the paralyzing 3 inches we received last week (Jan. 28, 2014). I honestly don't trust it much in the rain either, but that might just be me being paranoid. I feel much more comfortable in rain with my 2001 Porsche Boxster. Take care or your Q and she'll take care of you! Although, I'm not the best maintenance example to follow, but my Q has been great in spite of my oft neglect. You can't try that with a Benz or Bimmer for too long. Believe, I know first hand!"

Pros: "the 02 infiniti is great fun to drive"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The Infiniti Q45 rides and handles as well as our older M/B on our 300 miles round trips to the Cape or our 250 miles round trips to Maine. I do have an easier time getting in & out of our M/B as the drivers door is larger."
