Good Evening..... Infadel — Curb appeal is nice, awesome acceleration. Too heavy, too big. Started getting a few squeaks around 70k miles. Tire wear was good, first set lasted 60k. At 99k now still haven't needed any repairs, still on original brakes!! Decent highway fuel economy but in town lucky to break 12.

One Monsterlooking Eye Magnet!!! Without The Sport Package, All Other M45s Are Just That.... — Quality inside and out, perfect price point for includes without the more pricey sticker. Handles well, but lacking in the 'hug your seat' department while taking corners. Fun to drive and love the details! Bose system with surround sound, AMAZING!!! The navigation system is hard to see in the daytime sunlight. All in all, amazing and loved by the gawkers!!!

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

Pros

Having owned probably more than 100 cars and being a fleet manager for a bank, I have never owned/seen a car with every feature/bell and whistle in my life.  This 'O6 M45S has all those.  To name a few: All leather, memory, Heated/AC front seats; heated/memory rear seats; Theater sound/DVD System front and drop down screen.  My first Infiniti, and I picked a winner!  Thanks for reading.

Cons

V8 is wicked fast but, only gets about 22MPG on highway sans AC.

Timeless Appeal And Wide/low Stance Makes For A Head-turning Ride. — One of the best cars I have ever owned/driven with every option known in 2OO6 that was available on a luxury sedan. Please drive an Infiniti when you can. The local dealer treats us like family. Very nice group.

Pros

Performance.
Handling
Options - Heated and cooled front seats; Navigation; Back-up camera; Keyless entry and start; Illuminated door sills; Voice activated phone, nav, temp, etc.

Cons

Overall exterior looks - Just not as "sexy" as some of the other sport sedans. Looks too tall, should have been made just a little bit wider.

Great Performance For A Great Price — This is a great car. I was shopping for a E550 when I test drove this M45. The performance and handling are great for a sedan. The rear wheels adjust slightly when cornering giving you an interesting sensation in your "seat" the first few times you go hard into a corner. The 330+ HP and torque really pull with medium to full acceleration. I bought it with 19K miles four years ago and I have 110K on it now (05/20/13). Great running car, high reliability, lower maintenance costs compared to other luxury cars, and fun to drive. Seems to like to run at or above (not that I would know about this) the speed limit on the highway and is very comfortable for long trips with heated and cooled front seats. This car is making it hard for me to find a replacement. Features like keyless entry and push button start (without having to remove your key fob from your pocket), two sun visors per side (so you can have one in front and one to the side for those winding drives into the sun), GPS, voice activated Blue Tooth, etc are easy to get used to once you have them. I don't like the styling of the new M (2010-????) - to me it looks too much like the G and if you're going to pay more for the larger car, casual observers should be able to easily tell the difference. If you're able to find this model style with lower mileage, I believe you're going to be very happy with your purchase. Enjoy!

Best I Have Ever Owned And The List Includes Bmw, Mercedes, Audi And Porsche — Smooth and powerful through the full of gear range. Great fit and finish last through years of ownership. Technology package years ahead of the rest of the industry. Dirving is pure pleasure, handles curves and rough spots well. No issues.

Best Car I Will Ever Own — Love the car! Great performance relative to my former 7 series BMW. Great acceleration and top speed. I have the technology package and the sound system is awesome! Likely will be the best car I ever own. Assuming the government outlaws V8s in the future for the sissy 2 cyclinder smart cars.

Infiniti Sucks — I just got my lemon law check last week. Only 10% of my total lease. The electronics totally suck, acceleration is good, handling OK, the vehicle dynamic control kicks in too soon when I drive hard. The brakes are too small for this car. I warped rotors front and rear. Dealing with Infiniti and the dealer on the problems was a nightmare. Finally had to hire an attorney. I would never buy another Infiniti.
