2006 Infiniti M45J Smooth - Powder Springs, GA11/30/2008
I have a 2006 M45 with the sport package and I love it. The interior is way more luxurious than my brother-in-laws BMW 530 and more power as well. The only thing it needs is door locks that automatically engage when you shift to drive. It drinks gas, but that's what you expect when you get a V8. You don't want to spend for the gas, give up some power and go with the G35. You can't go wrong either way.
I was looking for an Infiniti SUV when I began my car search, but after one look at the Infiniti M45 and one test drive I forgot all about the SUV. I love the car.
The car handles well and is full of amenities and is a very comfortable ride.
My only "issues" are the doors do not automatically lock when you place your foot on the brake or when you begin to drive. This was a feature I had in my Ford Explorer. The other "issue" is that te M45 only takes premium gas and isn't that good on gas mileage...but I knew that when I purchased the car.
I would highly recommend this vehicle.
Car and Drivers Number one
2006 Infiniti M45winglow - Houston, TX12/16/2006
While the M45 Sport was Car and Drivers Number one vehicle in a recent shoot out - it just does not merit the number one unless fully loaded. The base cars are awfully feature poor. The loaded cars are complicated - like the I-drive of BMW. Almost a great car - weak exhaust note, overly acitve design... Keep Looking!
