Enough said. No other sedan can match
the quality and performance of the Q45
for under $50k. It really is the
quintessential poor man's 7 series BMW.
I know; I've owned both.
Great Engine, amazing acceleration and
handling, cool retro interior and
exterior styling, and great gadgets.
Very roomy and comfortable. Affordable
when used and very reliable. The engine
is good for over 300k miles when
Transmission is a dog and guaranteed to
fail. Electric motors for windows,
antennae fail routinely. Fuel economy
could be a little better, but it's far
from bad. The trunk should be larger.
Interior accessory orientation is
difficult to get used to. Depreciation
is horrible. Buy used
