1994 Infiniti Q45 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought the car for $2500, can't beat getting the equivalent of a BMW 740 at that price. Engine is smooth, yet very throaty at full throttle. Car of course is 4200 lbs so performance is somewhat subpar due to the weight and "old person" gearing/shift points (Can be mostly remedied with a new ECU). I consistently get 26 mpg which is great for a V8. Front end styling along with factory wheels are rather uninspired/too small.


Favorite Features

V8, Bose stereo with separate amplifiers on each channel, self diagnostic mode for all the interior accessories, immaculate leather condition even after 14 years, reliability, smooth ride, and it was a ~$50k car for $2500


Suggested Improvements

Larger wheels, HIDs, better gearing, HICAS standard, and where's the DIC or HUD that tons of cheaper GM cars have?

Review

The 1994 infiniti Q45 has been my daily cruiser for years now. its powerful v8 lets me merge into traffic without worring about the 5.0 mustang trying to accelerate to not let me in. the interior is classy and comfortable,the suspension won best in luxury class in 1994 and it proves it every day on the horrible nyc roads. its design dosent show its age. it has many options that were advanced for its time. over all its a beautiful luxurious car able to be held up agains the big boys of mercedes bmw and audi anyday..


Favorite Features

the infiniti car phone, huge sun/moon roof, power head reasts, the infiniti in dash analog clock, Powerful V8, factory BBS rims, it weights 5,400 lbs. very firm and heavy riding car. and a litter of small amaneties.


Suggested Improvements

improvements would be cup holders that can be used while the arm rest is down. maybe a little more fuel economy.. a cheaper transmission since its a know flaw of the Q ship

Review

I bought the car for my mother about two years ago. It was in near mint condition with 94000 miles. I don't know why the Q45 doesn't hold its resale value, but I didn't complain when I only paid $8,000 for it in 2001. I found the original window sticker from 1994 in the glove compartment listing the car for $54,000.


Favorite Features

My mother loves the car. Her favorite feature is the car's amazing power, although she sometimes laments having to buy premium fuel at only 19 mpg. Another feature she likes is the power tilt/telescoping steering wheel that moves up and away when she removes the ignition key.


Suggested Improvements

The car has required only occasional unexpected maintenance, such as needing a new power antenae, for example.

Review

Cant complain too much - so far the car has 140,000 miles on it. Regular repairs have been performed. Went through 2 altanators, fuel pump and control module and a $1800 60k mile tune-up (ouch!). The car doesn't perform as it once did. Disappointed for a car that origially sold for $52k. Engine not as quiet as the LS400. Must say the car has a lot of upper end power; took it to 115 MPH - smooth as a silk.


Favorite Features

Upper end power, exterior design- flawless!!!)


Suggested Improvements

Build quality, lower end power, cup holders!!!
