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.
Extraordinary highway cruiser. Loads of horsepower to effortlessly pass, refined and comfortable suspension, fantastic seating comfort, concert hall audio quality, and a real world 34.3mpg at an average speed of 77mph with a/c running. This vehicle is near ideal for rolling down the highway.
2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid Hybrid Sport 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid 7A)
I leased a Q50S AWD Hybrid in Nov 2013. The first couple of months I had problems with the Infiniti Connection technology that even the dealership couldn't figure out how to fix. Since then it has been a very pleasant experience. The recent addition of the inTouch apps is nice. The handling and cornering is the same if not better than BMW 335. In Sport mode the acceleration is awesome and the paddle shifters are very responsive. When accelerating from low speed in standard or eco mode the transmission appears confused which gear to shift to first and sometimes fails to respond properly to the driver's foot on the gas pedal.
Very stable cornering at high speeds. Gas consumption very good in standard or eco mode for a 360 hp engine.
Improve software for transmission shift when accelerating from low speeds in Standard and eco mode so its smoother and more accurate and responsive.
