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.
After having several BMWs, Mercedes, and Jaguar, I decided to try the Infiniti M35x. I am so glad I did...This car has incredible acceleration, handling and braking characteristics. The interior is luxury all the way. AWD keeps drive in RWD mode unless you need the AWD--this leads to great feel, traction and responsiveness. After driving this car, I will never pay the inflated prices for German again. Infiniti hit a home run with this car!!!!
I am very pleased with the performance, appearance and price paid for the Infinity. The car was nicely maintained and frankly it is hard to believe it is a used car. I took advantage to the extended warranty product and look forward to many years of pleasurable ownership. I would never buy new again if I can get future deals like this one.
