2006 INFINITI M45 Sport 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I love this car! I have owned it for 2 years and have no complaints. I owned a Corvette before this car and wasn't sure how I would adjust to driving a sedan but this one has it all. It performs well, the power is there, the transmission is very smooth and it handles corners beautifully. The interior is very comfortable and visually appealing. It has a sexy exterior (I added the rear spoiler). The technology is easy to use (although the voice activation takes some getting used to). The stereo is amazing and having XM radio is great. I have the Dolby surround sound and it is like sitting in a concert hall! Having the Bluetooth is handy. Keyless ignition and entrance is a great touch.


Best Features

Dolby surround sound, voice activation, nav system, smooth automatic transmission, keylessignition and entrance, walnut trim, sport package.


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be better but it is a V8. Low speed auto door lock.

Review

All around beautifully designed and built car that seems to have it all. Quality, luxury, performance and top of the line features. Zero problems after a year of driving. I do not know what more I would want in a car, and I have had many. Excellent machine, and in its class, an excellent value.


Best Features

Performance is amazing for such a comfortable and luxurious car. Technology that is very useful and actually works, every day.

2006 INFINITI M45 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased used w/4,000 miles, all options except DVD screen and heated rear seats. Great performance and handling for such a large car. Tested Lexus GS 430 and BMW 530 but M45 seemed much roomier in the back and quicker as well. Love the soft leather and rosewood, even though Lexus still more refined inside. Exterior styling also a little bland compared to E500 and GS 430. Nice exhaust rumble that's not intrusive when cruising at highway speeds. Glad I don't have sports suspension, supple ride that's only occasionally harsh over very large irregularities (especially if accelerating hard). Rides a bit noisier than Lexus, but expected given sporty personality.


Best Features

V-8, navigation, Bose, soft leather, ride, large back seat.


Worst Features

More storage space upfront, door pockets are small, center console only has small ash tray and cupholder for two drinks. More plugs for cell phones, etc. - only plug for cell phone is inside the ashtray, and in rear of center console?! Gas guzzler. Should have auto locks and daylight lamps.

Review

I originally had my sights on the QX56 but after test driving the M35 and M45, I decided to go with something sporty. The initial test drive with M35 wasn't quite satisfying, so I decided to test out the M45. The V8 on the 45 version has a great compromise on the bulkiness of the sedan. The car takes off like a rocket. The thrill on speed is just one of the best features, the stability is probably the second biggest accomplishment for this car. Body roll is minimal when serving through the lanes in high speed on the freeway. The manual shifting is precise and quick. The only recommendation I have for this car is a six-speed auto gear box insteaf of five and a small lift on the rear facia.


Best Features

Back up camera, clean aluminum interior, VDC.


Worst Features

Need some cosmetic lift for rear facia and six speed auto.

Review

The 2006 M-45 Sport is a great sport sedan and I think it is the best value of all the good sedans out there. If you compare it to its real peer group, BMW 545/550,MB E500/550,AUDI S-6, it is as fast or faster, handles and brakes better, has more user features in the interior, and is less expensive! My car is loaded with Voice-activated Navigation ,Bluetooth , heated and cooled seats,DVD,6-disc CD changer, leather, 19 in. brushed aluminum sport wheels, etc. It is the best driver's sport sedan I have ever owned. The acceleration is very quick (0-60 in 5.2 sec.), the brakes are phenomenal, and the handling is very flat around fast corners.


Best Features

Power/acceleration, Bluetooth hands- free phone use, Voice-activated Nav., Heated and Cooled seats, Understated Sporty look


Worst Features

IPOD CONNECTION!!! Better gas mileage with even more power, 335 hp is great but 400hp would be a world beater in the class of M-5/AMG E-55/RS-6.
