2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid Hybrid Sport 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid 7A)
I gave up a G35 for the mileage benefit of a fully loaded Nissan Altima Hybrid, which I rode for 6 years. I returned to Infiniti in desire of muscle, but having been spoiled by the MPG of the Altima Hybrid. Purchasing the Q50 Hybrid Sport AWD at ~33% discount to its new cost after just 11,000 miles, I was able to return to the sporty comfort of Infiniti giving up just 5mpg and gaining updated controls and muscle. Two weeks into ownership, I find myself, enjoying the ride, comfortable on the road, driving at 65mph, less in a rush to get anywhere, and knowing that with a tap of the pedal in sport mode, I can pass most all cars on the road and beat almost any car through the intersection as the red light turns green.
DON'T BUY! It is the least reliable luxury cars on sale today. I've had 2014 Q50 HYBRID for almost 2 years. I have been having many issues with the car's the steering system, handling, navigation, touchscreens, key-less entry and Bluetooth. Today, I had to bring my car back to the dealership again for DAS repair. The car started going to right by itself and started braking itself causing the risks of crashes. I am done with Infiniti.
I leased a beautiful red Q50 hybrid in October 2014. We live in Wisconsin. In January 2015, the steering froze due to arctic weather in Wisconsin 0 degrees. Dealer had car for over a month to repair. International Infiniti couldn't be bothered with replacing said defective car. Fast forward to January 2016. Guess what? The steering does not work again. Hmm. You need steering in all climates. Do not buy this car under any circumstance.
Brakes do not stop well if you hit a bump. The electronics do not work properly. The fuel economy for a hybrid isn't worth the extra money. Infiniti should recall all of these cars until the defect is fixed. This car will kill someone.
