An update for 2009

Vehicle2002 INFINITI Q45 4dr Sedan (4.5L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewCar has now been flat-bedded for repairs 3 times, am on 4th battery ("Infiniti" batteries are made in Mexico and last me 1-2 years.), entire left side of exhaust--engine to tailpipe--had to be replaced, one entire HID assembly replaced at less than one year, all 4 pressure gauges needed replacement, body shop did poor work and failed to cover all new paint with clear-coat, console cup holder lid requires solid thump to open, glovebox- -with 6-disc changer--has very little room, paint scratches if you look at it cross-eyed, crazing developing in f/r bumper fasciae, transmission still hesitates too much on downshifts, cruise "On" light "assembly" burned out--over $300 (Skipped it.).
Best FeaturesVery comfortable interior still is, stereo is great--though integrated and cannot be modified, storage in rear center armrest is nice--but it always pops open, and that's it. Oh, it's only broken once this week--another dead battery. (Optima Red Top, here I come.)
Worst FeaturesBuild it with the quality that a plain old Nissan Maxima or Altima would have. Well, a moot point, since the Q is no longer with us. Hmmm...wonder why.
