Pros

The fact that there are only a handful of Q45's that physically look as clean as the one I found makes it a fantastic car to clean up and show off. They are very rare and they are beautiful and sound great if you're into aftermarket exhausts!

Cons

Parts are EXTREMELY hard to find if you live in the eastern/central states unless you order them online. If you have to go through the dealer, both part and/or labor costs rival that of Mercedes.

Pauley's Pre-owned Q45t Review! — The 2nd gen Q45 (Y33 Cima) is an absolutely stunning car in both appearance and functionality, inside and out. The interior is extremely comfortable and functional. The Touring model came with all the luxurious bells and whistles of it's time and is made with quality materials and craftsmanship which is more than I can say about the new cars of today. It's 4.1 liter V8 is quite powerful given it's age and you can definitely feel it even though the car is as heavy as it is. By today's engine standards however, it would not be considered a top of the list powerhouse by any means. The Touring package came with adjustable, active dampening suspension. The car handles like a dream even at very high speeds which is surprising given it's weight and physical size. Q45's are said to be extremely reliable and will last anywhere beyond 200,000 miles if they are correctly maintained. Mine however has given many many problems, though it never actually STOPPED running and I was able to drive it during most of the issues. Basically I've never been stranded by fault of the car itself.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Nice Large Sedan With Many Luxury Features — Nice looking, 'sporty' for a large sedan. Loved the leather seats for the first 6 years, but then they started to wear badly. Same with the sunroof, and the brakes. After the 6th year, several 'little' things became problems. I kept this car for 10 years and I liked many things about it. But the last few years were frustrating from a maintenance perspective.
