Since I purchased the Q45 several years ago all service work has been done in a timely manner.The finish has held up beautifully since I keep it polished. This is a sweet 4 door sedan which competes with the Lexus LS 430 but costs thousands less!
Nice sound system & heated seats.
The gas cap flap can only be opened from the outside.
My 99 Q45 is my 2nd. Previously owned a 93 Q45. Both Q's are wonderful cars and a joy to drive. My BIG problem with owning these cars is 1) extremely high rate of depreciation 2) VERY expensive maintenance and repairs - major service intervals approach $1000. My 99 Q has issues with warped brake rotors, driveline vibratons, steering shudder that return after being "fixed". Sensors go bad on the car and it costs $$$$ to replace. Example: O2 sensor (this car has 4), fixed one for $365. Knock sensor (one of 2) requires COMPLETE intake removal @ $1000. Turbine sensor leak cost $2300 to fix. It never ends. I agree with all the other reviews on this car, but 1 have had 2 Q's that cost $$$$ to keep
Quality, quality, quality every where you see and touch. The V8's song during hard acceleration is pure music.
Owners must have large bank account to pay for maintenance and repairs. Better seats in front (try sitting in a Saab or Volvo and you'll know what I mean). 17 inch wheel and tire should be standard. 16 inch on a $48K sedan is not cool. Better instrument lighting.
Every bit the car and more than the Lexus LS series but almost half the cost used. I never understood how Infiniti botched this market share, it certainly is not due to quality. This is my 2nd Q. The last one had 110k miles before anything major started to appear.
Fit and finish, styling
braking is a little weak and at sub 20mpg, I'd think there would be a little more horsepower, but overall a great car.
I've had this car a number of years now and I'll never buy another brand of luxury vehicle again. Aside from regular maintenance my car has never had to have any major repairs. Build quality is excellent. Design inside and out is classic and it's one that will never go out of style.
My favorite feature is the reliability. If you want a car that looks good as well as runs good then you can't go wrong with an Infiniti Q45.
