Review of the 2002 Infiniti Q45

  • Redesigned from the ground up to compete with the best sedans on earth, the Infiniti Q45 bundles prodigious levels of luxury and performance into a reasonably priced and attractive package.

  • Safety

265,000 miles

Vehicle: 2002 Infiniti Q45 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

I have owned this car (Sport) since 9-2005 when I bought it from the first owner w/ 40k on it. It has been very reliable car to own. It handles well and has great accelertation. At 265k there are no rattles and the car rides very quite. The V8 does burn oil. But it is the same since I got it. This is a common issue w/ these cars.




Not impressed

No doubt this is a comfortable ride, but the joy stops there. Maintenance is a wallet-draining nightmare, and with the price of (premium only!) gas these days, along with a dismal 16 mpg fuel efficiency, this car is a waste of money. The high-powered headlights are great until one needs to be replaced (at a premium price, of course). This car spent almost as much time in the shop as it did in my driveway. The paint and body are ridiculously fragile. I traded mine in for a Subaru. I only wish I would have done it sooner.

Satisfying but pricey

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Infiniti Q45 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

The power is great, but it drinks up gas as well. In the winter, with only city driving, I'm getting only 10.3 mpg-summer time it goes back up to 17. I love the comfort, and the V8 engine is absolutely silent. Maintainance is pretty expensive as well with even the smallest of problems. Just bought new tires for $900. This car is ultimate luxury for the price your paying. The car is heavy, but the power it's backed up with makes up for it. Personally, I love the car, but the maintainance is getting a bit too pricey for me.

What's New for 2002

Infiniti takes aim at the BMW 5 Series, Lexus GS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class with the all-new Q45 sedan. Unlike the forgettable previous version, the new Q has power and panache, just what it takes to woo the mid-luxury crowd.

Good morning. Infiniti launched in November 1989 with two products - the Q45 and the M30. Today, we're proud to bring back the "M" designation - but this time with the power of the Q45 under...
