This car stinks!

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

Review

Left me stranded and needed flat- bedding to the nearest dealership twice in two years. I received notice of factory recalls after the items concerned had already broken on my car. Lousy parts availability and only fair diagnostic capability; the overhead map light required 4 visits to the dealership to diagnose and finally repair (It was the sunglass holder pressing on a connector that shorted the lamp "assembly."). Clock, silver hands on a silver dial, totally unreadable; re-painted it white-on- black myself. Transmission takes a week to downshift. Trunk smaller than it should be. Stereo very good, driver comfort great, handling okay, paint the world's most fragile.

Updated Q45

Recently there was an update for this model Q45. Infiniti calls it the ITB-02048 update. And what a difference it made. No more hesitation on takeoff. The first part of the fix replaces the accelerator pedal with one with a bit less lag in the pedal itself. Nice update. Good update. The second part of the update doesn't involve any new parts - it is all ones and zeros, but it's what makes the big difference. It's gone from Oldsmobile shifting (no offense) to German shifting, and from a stop the car feels so much faster. It reprograms the Engine Control Module. Shifting and acceleration are totally different.

Review

This is my 2nd Nissan cars and 1st Q. I have test drove both BMW 740 and Lexus LS430. Both are good cars, but my money went to Q45. This is the best car for the money. It has good handling, comfort, and reliability. This is a fast luxury sedan and you won't see lot of them in the road. I get compliments how sharp and nice the car looks. There's little bit of hesitaion during acceleration, but checked with Infinitihelp.com and downloaded the document plus the TSB number, took it back to the dealer and fixed the problem. I will keep mine for a long time and buy another.

Review

This car was plagued by excessive oil consumption (1.5 to 2.0 quarts per 2500 mi.)after 8,000 miles with blue smoke coming out of exhaust during initial startup. Dealership was great and did what they could but Infinity claimed it was normal. After checking with other dealerships out of state and finding out they had to replace engines in other 2002 Q45s I requested a replacement. It took 12 months to finally get Infinity to replace the engine. They said they had to monitor the oil consumption over a period of 3 oil changes. The new engine doesn't burn a drop! Had to have the rotors turned down after 20,000 miles (warped) and had them replaced 7,000 miles later due to the same problem.

Started watching Q45's in late 2001 and fell in love. Drove one in December 2001 and had to find an affordable one. Bought my 2002 Premium on the cheap from ebay and love it.

Review

When I took delivery of car there were several recalls or service upgrades that the dealer had not addressed. It had a defective wheel(out of round) which dealer refused to warrant. Rear sunshade broke at 33,000 miles. Electronics malfunction occasionally requiring you to turn off car and reset. Easier to use manual controls rather than voice as I can't remember exact wording and everyone must stop talking. Car magazine tests show about 6.5 to 60. Fast but a long way from 5.9. Needs switch to turn off traction control. My last car was Lexus LS400 which was superior in quality, dealer service and workmanship. Not holding value.

Great car for the money

Review

Considered Lexus GS and BMW 530i but for few dollars more got awesome V8 power, an audio system that can't be beat (unless you want to pay $5K for a Levinson radio), and a vehicle that gets admiring stares . You won't feel connected to the road as with BMW, but way better than Lexus in that regard. The steering is tight and perfectly weighted and the brakes are great -- also unlike Lexus. This car is fast.

LOVE MY Q

Review

This is the best car for the money. It's comfortable, fast, responsive and really fast. I mean really fast. Good brakes and handles very well in heavy rains, water at the side of the road. Love the adjustable headlamps. Also, the smart cruise control is brilliant. Sounds system is excellent, too. Also like having the CD in the cab rather than the trunk.

21st Century Q

Review

This car is fast! Almost as fast as my 2001 supercharged Jaguar XJR. The Q has a soft, luxury car ride, however, which my wife and I greatly appreciate on long trips. The interior of this car is not as luxurious as the Jaguar, but is quite plush and superior to the LS430 in my opinion. Build quality is excellent and there have been no defects or problems in the year that I have owned it.

2002 Q45 best ever

Review

This my second Q. After test driving most of its competitors, there is no doubt that the Q beats them all in every category. It is the most comfortable and smoothest riding car that I have ever driven.
