I am very pleased with this purchase with one exception. I didn't realize until I had already fallen in love with everything about the car, that the side mirrors are so large and high, they block my view when turning either left or right. I have a big blind spot that has already caused me to cut a right turn too soon and run over a curb in a parking lot. I have to be very careful and watchful when turning because I'm afraid someone might step off a crosswalk into this blind spot. I am short, so maybe this isn't a problem for taller people, but I've seen comments about it since I noticed it and started looking at more reviews. Hopefully Infinity has remedied this in newer models.
Aside from that, it's a great car! It has lots of pep and drives/rides like a sports car, with the advantage of a small suv. Cargo space isn't great, but it's a small car so it is what I expected! Interior finish has beautiful wood accents and heated leather seats. The rear camera is great for backing up and I love the cameras in the front as well. The only extra I didn't get because it wasn't available was an automatic gate lift for the cargo door.
I am a Realtor and drive clients around, and I have had many positive comments about the car. Add a cargo gate I can open with my key, and make the side mirrors smaller or positioned differently, and this would be an 6 on your scale of 1-5!!!
Outstanding car at great price
