This car sold for $50000 new, $70000 in today's dollars. These greatest thing the car offers is lower tech engine/ transmission that is bullet proof. There is nothing worse than having a 6 speed Mercedes tranny that goes out and costs $7000 to replace on a car that is only worth $5500 used..These cars have beautifully appointed interiors, excellent handling, fair gas mileage and a reliability rating that is second to none.
This car is beautiful, reliable and a classic. The power is amazing and the ride is smooth. I have the touring model and keep the struts on sport mode. I bought this ride for my lady and kids to mostly ride in. I always wanted the car and my lady like it to so I got it used with 77,000 miles. That was 111,000 mile ago and it's still the big dog. It does sip a lil more gas than some may like but what do you expect out of the big bad V8 this monster has. Yet, it is a luxury oasis. I love it so much I've contemplating getting.......another one. I'm about to rid myself of my Lincoln Ls an serious considering replacing it with same model Q45, with different color and lower miles of course.
It's a big car and you notice that inside as well. The driver and passenger are a generous distance from each other.
The rear window shade that goes up by push button is too cool. Love the 17inch wheels and stereo packs a punch.
My anniversary edition Q45 has excellent fit and finish. The style has really held up well. I love the wheels. This has been a carefree car. It will be 6 years old this summer and still is a beautiful car. I like the option of being able to go from the standard ride to the "sports" ride. The dealership is great and unlike many dealers any service work is very reasonably priced.
The overall look of the car. Crystal smooth, quiet ride. Unique trim. Carefree.
This car is an absolute joy; dependable and reliable. A few small minor fixes, such as cup holder and truck close" motor being replace--be careful can't slam the trunk shut. I love the styling. It truly is the best car I ever owned.
The best feature is the memory seats and the power of this vehicle. The radio sounds awfully good too.
The car styling is for the 2000s and that's great--but a few more tinker toys, such as integrated phone would be nice.
