The Q has been a good vehicle.
Purchase warranty with vehicle up to
100,000. Unfortunately, problems
didn't occur until after warranty
expired. Currently have 144,000 -
transmission failing, control arms have
been replaced twice. Door locks
mechanics replaced twice. Experience
problem with compression and heads
Performance has been great. The 278
horses really move this car. My '89
Nissan Maxima has been a more realiable

This is, by far, the best car I've
owned. A great engine, combined with a
great interior are the best aspects of
this car. Exterior styling may turn
off some, but I love the old Q's. I
now have 138,000 miles on it and still
love cruising around in it. Only
downfall is poor traction in the snow
(even with traction control option)

Super car to own. Fast, comfortable,
and reliable. This car is an absolute
dream to drive, I mean you step on the
gas and you actually move. I have
nearly 160k miles and all I had to
change so far was the water pump and
the fan. As long as you keep up with
your preventative maintenance (tune
ups, oil changes and annual
inspections) this car won't let you

This is a great luxury car with a lot
of power(4.5 287HP V8 engine). My car
has over 150k miles and I've never had
a problem with it other than normal
maintenance. Certainly not as smooth as
a BMW, but what is. Overall I think its
a fine automobile with some spunk to it.

At 120,000 KM the transmission went.
$4,600 repair job. At 130,000 KM the
fuel pump went $950. At 140,000 KM all
injectors, the fuel pump again,
regulator, O2 sensors, electric antena,
door sensors and a bunch of other
compentent all failed within four weeks
of each other. Cost. $5,000.
For an Infiniti "flagship" car, this
vehicle is riddled with major defects.
Stay far away from any model under 1995.
You will get get hit with major repair
costs. Almost 100% of the Q45 owners
I've corresponded with have had the
same issues. The dealer service
manager has also confirmed that they
are in fact lemons. Isn't that nice.
1994 Q45 with 99000 miles. Owned for 9 months. I have had struts replaced, new tires, idler pulleys replaced (with belts), transmission leak fixed, etc... I fully expect routine maintenance and upkee...
