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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Performance - this car is fast and comfortable. The luxery features are awesome.


Suggested Improvements

In-dash CD and larger trunk would be nice.

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


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.


Favorite Features

Engine and stereo.


Suggested Improvements

Traction control defeat switch. In dash CD player.

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


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.


Favorite Features

Engine and drivetrain, sexy interior is great blend of luxury and sport, Bose audio, Gatling gun headlights.


Suggested Improvements

Better side bolstering in seats, 1-2 inches more rear leg room, fix annoying lag when shifting into "drive," C-pillar should be narrowed slightly to increase rear visibility.

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


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.


Favorite Features

smart cruise control comfort and speed adjustable suspension GPS and directions


Suggested Improvements

more storage space in glovebox or central compartment

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.


Favorite Features

High-powered HID headlights. Powerful and responsive engine. Active dampening suspension smooths out bumps better than Lexus LS430 and Cadillac DeVille. Handling is also superior to these cars as well.


Suggested Improvements

Upgrade tires to Michelin Pilot Sport All Season. Redesign curvature of front side windows so that reflected glare from dashboard does not obstruct sideview mirror viewing. As with all Japanese cars, auto tranmission often hunts for correct gear when accelerator is "punched".
