Traded in a 09 Maxima for the 08 Infiniti M45X. I test drove the 08 G37 and a 08 BMW 550. The G 37 actually drives better but I figured I would get the top of the line and go with the M. The car does not turn heads but as the other reviewer put it, you get pampered when you get inside. I had a Maxima prior to this so I understand all the gadgets. Everything is laid out well. It has great power, you will not get embarrassed on the acceleration lane and on a smooth road you cant tell the difference between 65 and 85. The surround sound is like a concert hall. Around town the ride is a little bouncy, you will feel most bumps in the road and the M goes through gas.
The car is very comfortable inside. The extras like rear view camera, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, 9.1 Gig hard drive, DVD player, user friendly navigation, the surround sound is the best I have ever heard. I still look forward to the drive to work. Mood lighting. Seats are comfy
The front of the car is really sharp, the back could use some help. The ride around town is a little rough for a $50,000 vehicle.
