We have driven Lexus' for over 10 years and had been very happy with them. However, we decided to shift to Infinity M this time and are thrilled!! The technology improvements, the performance "sound" and the beauty of the care have been wonderful.
It is a great car for comfort. The ride is very good and the the road noise is much quieter than my Q37. It is not a sports car to race around in but that's not what I wanted.
2006 Infiniti M35Bagelbaker - South Carolina02/25/2012
This is our first "luxury" vehicle. Even though it is a 2006, it's styling matches he cars in it's class coming out in 2012. Interior space is great, would have like a larger pass through in trunk, but space is more than adequate for our luggage on a road trip.
It has some features that are not obvious, such as warm up time. On a cold winter day, we are getting heat after just 1 mile. Smart cruise, in cruise control, if the car in front slows down, or someone cuts in front, the car automatically compensates, then returns to set speed as conditions allow. Lane guidance, wonder over the white line and you get a warning beep, headlights turn in the direction of your turn. A lot of technology so we purchased an extended warranty package to cover it.
Engine runs at higher RPM than I am used to. Was worried about impact on gas mileage and wear and tear. After reading the user sites found out that neither is a problem, and the car has superior pick up, important when passing or trying to enter freeway.
My only complaint is there is more wind noise than I expected, road noise is virtually eliminated.
I certainly would not have bought a car like this new, but as a used vehicle, given its reliability and features it is a good buy.
