Leased this vehicle in AWD about a year ago. Have never had a problem with it. Great looking and great reliability. Love the performance and AWD drive system. Stock tires relay road noise but stick well. I run winter tires to enhance Snow/Ice traction and will take it anywhere. Technology is good, but not great compared to today's standard, but new model years promise upgrades in that area. I have this on a special lease program for 24 months and its coming near it end. I wish I would have taken a longer lease, I really enjoy this vehicle. Some earlier comments referenced poor MPG, but I get from 21-24MPG in a mixture of driving conditions. The requirement for Premium fuel is a draw-back. Just typically Me or Me and my spouse in the vehicle so the limited back seat space and truck space has not been an issue for us.
2014 Q60 Journey - I generally agree with the Edmunds review, however, there are two things that I wish that I'd known before getting into a lease on this car, which would have swayed me in another direction: MPG & the awful entertainment system.
I've had the car a few days shy of five months and in that time I'm astounded at the poor gas mileage.
The EPA sticker estimate puts it at a 22-combined MPG; however, my best efforts at driving gas-wise have resulted in no better than 12.9 MPG combined (!).
12.9 MPG is low by any standars-- and believe me you'll start to feel the hit in your wallet when filling that tank with premium.
What you should no before buying this car is that it is a sports coupe. So your not gonna get 30mpg. I recently brought a pre certified 2014 Q60 sport model with 12100 miles on it. I traded in my 2007 M35. So far I like this car a lot I think you get a lot of bang for your buck. I paid 30.000 bucks for mine financing approx 21000 after 10000 for my trade in. So yeah 30 grand for a car as close to new as you can get. Yeah it's a bang for your buck. I love the new 20017 Q60. But not ready to spend 56k. Yes the technology lil things like the infotainment system is a lil long in the tooth but still relevant. As far as the gas not bad at all. I drive 53 miles a day back and forth to work. And a tank of gas last me the whole week. Handles beautifully especially around curves. And I dont know how anybody doesn't love that signature Infiniti roar that 3.7 liter v6 puts out. Again it's a sports coup people it's supposed to sound fun and be fun to drive.. Also yes the new models are turbo. But remember turbo is a he'll of a lot of money when the turbo malfunctions. One final thing I got a great warranty regular warranty expires 2018. Power train warranty as well as pre certified warranty expires 2020. So yeah I'm very very happy
I am writing this review, because the other review said that he was only getting like 12.3 miles per gallon.
My fuel mileage with city and highway driving has averaged 22.3 miles/gallon.
The car has great acceleration and handling.
I'm 6 feet tall 250 pounds and would not recommend the car for anyone larger than me.
I am very happy with the car.
I purchased mine as a certified pre-owned for $33,000 with 12,000 miles.
As far as value for the money, nothing else comes even close.
The car has also been very reliable.
At 37,500 miles, I just replaced the tires and brakes all the way around.
The trunk is a little tight, but I am able to get my golf clubs, two pair of golf shoes, shag bag, 2 golf shirts, 3 golf towels, and golf supplies in trunk.
I think they should have just made the car a 2 seater like the 370Z and increased the trunk storage.
I am very happy with my purchase.
Now 53,000 miles no problems....replaced brakes at 40k with rayed bestows hybrid & happy with them...
