We considered Audi, Volvo and VW
Passat. The Infiniti was a hands-down
winner even though we had to endure a
rugged sales experience.
The 60,000 mile warranty was huge
though we have not had problem one with
the car -- except for the time she
decided it needed to hit a concrete
pole at the car wash. Note: The fog
lamps are quite expensive.
The engine. On the highway there is no
doubt about passing ability. Ask the
car to go and it responds immediately
with a smooth, comforting authority.
Automatic door-locks require too much
driver participation. Consider auto-
lock when the vehicle is put in gear or
attains a certain speed. Allow locked
front-cabin doors to open when vehicle
is in Park and the door handle is
pulled from the inside.
