The fast and the friendly
By jarrettblue on
2004 Infiniti M45 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)
Yeah a corny title, but deserved. This
car is a driver's and a passenger's car
(front passenger anyway). Very
comfortable, stable, smooth, quiet, and
fun at all speeds in everything other
than snow and even snow handling is
impressive for this RWDer. It gets
tons of looks, questions - someone even
said it looked like a Bently; but
styling is probably the most
contraversal aspect of this winner.
Nothing compares to its value per
dollar. It's a big car but doesn't
drive like a boat. After a while, you
forget you've got 15 feet behind you.
That smooth even powerband.
Comfortable seating for long hauls.
Steering wheel controls. Best of all
Better tranny (but i've heard this has
been corrected for the later '04 and
definitally for the M35/45 new body
style. I'd really like another power
outlet in the front.
