2011 Infiniti M56: Taking The Good With The Bad

May 24, 2011

Here's the deal: I've blogged too much on the M56. But that sure as heck doesn't mean I'm going to quit driving it. This is a glorious sedan: powerful, comfortable, intuitive...I could go on.

But I won't. Because this morning my wife drove the M and found a few things to talk about.

Her first comment is essentially the same as mine. I'll save you the details, but she largely covered the M in glory and ended with "I could own one of these."

Right. Don't get any ideas.

But she did have observations. The first is that the rear headrest is small enough to create a good rearward sight line between the outer headrests -- something that's been a problem for her in other large sedans.

And then there is this. The dot. I'll use her words: "In the universal language of car icons, what the heck does the dot mean?"

Good question, honey.
