Long term love affair

2006 Infiniti M45 Sport 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Wanted to give a long term persepctive on the M45 (Sport) I have put over trouble free 60k miles on the car. I must say it has surpassed the high expectations I had when I bought it 5 years ago. I had purchased the car after Car & Driver rating it higher than the 5 series. I drove several of the competitors and was sold due to the handling, power, technology, build quality (only Nissan built in Japan in 06) and vale. It price out 15k less than comparable BMW, lexus & Mercedes. The car continues to deliver all the positive traits to this day!

2006 M45 Sport W/ Aero Kit

2006 Infiniti M45 Sport 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

Review

This newer M45 made a big impact on me after trading in my G35 coupe. The front fascia resembles the Infiniti family tree. The overall styling is modern with a touch of upper level class. The car itself looks great but with the optional aero-kit, it really makes a bold statement. The interior is good but could use better front seat with multi adjustment seat of other cars in the same class. It only offers your basic functions. Good take off from a stand still but runs out of steam after 75mph. Transmission shifts good but could use the 2009 7 speed transmission. Good pricing and good high quality building makes structure solid.

06 M45 Luxury Muscle Car

Review

06 M45 non-sport journeyman off lease 32k miles. So much fun to drive you just don’t want to get out. Powerful and smooth acceleration at all speeds. All controls are easy to operate. I’m 6’4 & fit very well in terms of head and leg room. The M45 was the right combination of power, ride quality and technology goodies for me. The Bose sound system is wonderful. The M45 sport was just too stiff a ride for me. The M35 does not have the same power, only 1 MPG difference anyway. I bought the Infiniti extended warranty (bumper to bumper) till 100k miles or 2014. Infinity also has the best car loaner program. You always get a loaner (g35) no matter how old or out of warranty your infiniti.

Disappointed

Review

Purchased the M45 after owning a BMW 525, then a 2000 740IL. The Tech package of the M is awesome. Love the 3D GPS, voice activated controls, rear backup camera, A/C control seats (could be better), and overall looks. But from the very first oil change, have noticed using oil; not leaking, not smoking, but I have added from 1 to 2 quarts between changes. Also, moonroof leaks in any car wash, have had to have the AC serviced each year. Heated and cooled seats do not compare to the BMW. Ride is noisy, low-profile tires look great, but makes bumpy ride. If battery dies, no way to open the trunk (for jumper cables).

Best Performance Luxury Sedan

Review

This car is simply amazing. With the luxury and performance combined together, few can match. Infiniti gets it just right. It is packed with luxury options to make it a true luxury car, while the 335hp V8 with firm suspension makes the car a true performer. It is not a sports car for sure, which it should not be, as it is a luxury sedan. This car makes the trip enjoyable no matter drive it fast or slow.

Performance and Value
By Howard on 10/16/08 08:42 AM (PDT)

2006 Infiniti M45 Sport 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I am at the end of my 39 month lease and only have great things to say about this car. The acceleration is intoxicating. The sport package makes this car handle like a sports car. Great turning radius and people all the time comment and ask if the rims are aftermarket. These are the nicest factory 19 inch rims out. Pearl white paint glows and the interior is top notch. The seats in the sport package give just the right amount of support and navigation system works well. Overall it looks like I will soon be driving another one there is nothing out there I like more and it has had perfect reliability.

Great Car

This is a remarkable car. I can't get over how well the Sport stick through corners. The active steering is a real bonus for "spirited" driving. Everything works well, although the lane departure warning can be annoying.

Terrific Performance Sedan

2006 Infiniti M45 Sport 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I love this car! I have owned it for 2 years and have no complaints. I owned a Corvette before this car and wasn't sure how I would adjust to driving a sedan but this one has it all. It performs well, the power is there, the transmission is very smooth and it handles corners beautifully. The interior is very comfortable and visually appealing. It has a sexy exterior (I added the rear spoiler). The technology is easy to use (although the voice activation takes some getting used to). The stereo is amazing and having XM radio is great. I have the Dolby surround sound and it is like sitting in a concert hall! Having the Bluetooth is handy. Keyless ignition and entrance is a great touch.

All around beautifully designed and built car that seems to have it all. Quality, luxury, performance and top of the line features. Zero problems after a year of driving. I do not know what more I would want in a car, and I have had many. Excellent machine, and in its class, an excellent value.

Great choice in this segment

2006 Infiniti M45 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Purchased used w/4,000 miles, all options except DVD screen and heated rear seats. Great performance and handling for such a large car. Tested Lexus GS 430 and BMW 530 but M45 seemed much roomier in the back and quicker as well. Love the soft leather and rosewood, even though Lexus still more refined inside. Exterior styling also a little bland compared to E500 and GS 430. Nice exhaust rumble that's not intrusive when cruising at highway speeds. Glad I don't have sports suspension, supple ride that's only occasionally harsh over very large irregularities (especially if accelerating hard). Rides a bit noisier than Lexus, but expected given sporty personality.
