I originally had my sights on the QX56 but after test driving the M35 and M45, I decided to go with something sporty. The initial test drive with M35 wasn't quite satisfying, so I decided to test out the M45. The V8 on the 45 version has a great compromise on the bulkiness of the sedan. The car takes off like a rocket. The thrill on speed is just one of the best features, the stability is probably the second biggest accomplishment for this car. Body roll is minimal when serving through the lanes in high speed on the freeway. The manual shifting is precise and quick. The only recommendation I have for this car is a six-speed auto gear box insteaf of five and a small lift on the rear facia.
Back up camera, clean aluminum interior, VDC.
Need some cosmetic lift for rear facia and six speed auto.
