Bought my 2004 brand new right after my BMW 540i came out of the shop, Again. It is an awesome car that is not well known. I took a BMW 530 to task with no problem. No one knows what this "sleeper" can do. Most don't even know what the M45 is. At 70 MPH this car is asking you to please let it go faster. At 100 MPH its asking to please open it up all the way. During that time it feels and handles like a German car and the stereo is going, so pay attention to your driving. If you can't handle or appreciate very fast cars, go get a something else. This one is a dark horse among many wannabes. At today's prices its a steal. They won't be so low for long.

I purchased this car because it had a great review. After the initial purchase my experience was wow! I would love to purchase a new car but I am so satisfied with the overall experience that it make me scared that purchasing another car I will get less. Most new cars are great looking but their performance and overall quality is not as good as the '04 M45. A Mercedes S650 AMG. Talk about money. I guess its the '04 M45 for now and I love. See you on the highway in my rearview. LOL

I was passing a used car lot and saw this car, it looked interesting. The interior looked refined, comfortable and luxurious. Then I took a test drive and was hooked. Actually, test drove 3 of them and a Q within a month. This is a hard car to find and worth the effort to look. I got a black one with spoiler and the premium pkg last week. I drove it on a winding back road on Sunday. It was fantastic. The handling is exceptional on winding roads and freeways alike. The acceleration is unbelievabe and the amenities are the best in this class. The voice command system is great along with the sound system. It's a great car that you rarely see. Test drive it and you'll be hooked too!

Smooth, fast and love it

My first car in this class and I wanted something reliable, which meant it had to come from Japan. So the choice with this or a Lexus, and I have no complaints. After having the car for almost two years I still say WOW! Fast, smooth, and great options. It took a little wile to learn how the options work...but after you understand they come second nature.

For $40k, this is the best V-8 deal going. Scary fast, pretty quiet, great dealer, better than average warranty, and lots of interior features.

Went in to look at the G35, but was not as impressed with that car as reviews had led me to believe. Actually hadn't heard of the M45, but was immediately attracted to the interior design and comfort before I drove it. Then, wow! Clearly, a refined muscle car. You just don't expect to get quick acceleration and tight handling from what is essentially a luxury sedan. The Edmunds review compares the looks to a Cadillac DeVille, but with the rear spoiler and after adding custom chrome wheels, they couldn't be more wrong. I drove the Cadillac STS-V and BMW 545 before picking this car--couldn't see a good enough reason to spend another $10-15K. And, gotta love the reliability reports!

Moved from an I35 to M45! Car has alot of horses! Could be a little better from the start but awesome excelleration after 55 miles an hour. Happy with the handling but could have leg room in back seat and why can't they have cruise and radio controls light up @ nite? Also they should have doors lock and unlock when moved from park. For the price they should have more standard features!

I haven't loved a car this much since my '88 Mustang Conv. GT. The 2004 M45 is fast, comfortable, anf hot with all the jazz. I stopped talking to the car after two weeks (voice activated stuff is cool but useless once you know what to push). In a car with this much electronics and intelligence, the analog clock is a wonderful touch. The interior is gorgeous.

A very well built driving machine!

I have been driving Infiniti M45 since Sept. of 2004. It has lots of power with smooth acceleration and great braking system. Internal design is very well done with almost all of the fancy features you can think of.

I bought my wife an M45 for Valentines Day. This car is supposed to be a man's vehicle. But, she picked it out and fell in love with it. 340 Horsepower V-8, great interior, great styling. Did I mention 340 H.P.? Seriously, I consider all that power a safety item. It will get you out of many tight spots on the highway. If you need to pass, there is PLENTY of power. The interior is comfortable and beautiful. The 18" wheels set off the exterior. All in all, a great car. It really is a muscle car with a Phd. Also, even with the big V8, it still gets over 20 miles per gallon. Not bad.

Just traded a BMW 540i for the M45. Beemer went into the shop one time too many. Slightly less than 540i in pure kick ass performance but a whole ton of very nice amenities that cost $1,000's more from BMW. Closest car I could find in overall performance to replace my 540i and reduce the maintence costs substantially.

What's not to like - 120 more hp than the BMW 530 and 40 more hp than the Lexus GS 430. Plus the car has a longer wheel base giving it a smother ride. Last but not least, the stereo system is about 100+/- watts more than the cars the M45's class and is equipped with Bose speakers. There just too many details to go into - 18 inch wheels, nav system, price, Infinity customer service....

I haven't found a vehicle in this price range with these kind of numbers. Not to mention the no nonsense styling. Priced similarly to the BMW 525 which makes approx. 184 horsepower. I think I made the right decision.

Car handles very well and has plenty of power. Navigation system performs well. The intelligent cruise control works amazingly well, even in traffic, however in Southern California it maintains a safe separation distance which means other drivers frequently cut in front.

I have had three Q45's before the M45 and this was not a step down. The M45 is a truely enjoyable and fun ride. The M45 handles the road and is much more sporty than the flagship Q. The acceleration is mesmerizing. The driver seat encompass the body like a glove. A splendid vehicle. The only negative is the confusing instumentation.

Yeah a corny title, but deserved. This car is a driver's and a passenger's car (front passenger anyway). Very comfortable, stable, smooth, quiet, and fun at all speeds in everything other than snow and even snow handling is impressive for this RWDer. It gets tons of looks, questions - someone even said it looked like a Bently; but styling is probably the most contraversal aspect of this winner. Nothing compares to its value per dollar. It's a big car but doesn't drive like a boat. After a while, you forget you've got 15 feet behind you.

With a 340 HP engine that it shares with the Q and many other features also shared with the Q 45 make this the sleeper of the under 50K bracket. You will not believe the acceleration and handling on the open road. The control panel takes a little learning and the sound system is mediocre. I LOVE the body styling and think it will become a novelty because of it's 2 year production cycle before a SAAB like restyling. I'll stay with my 2003 M45 style.

So Smooth!

Giant engine thrust and silent cabin, clean understated lines, comfortable appointments and no defects in 5,ooo miles, better than '01 M Coupe, '02 Benz E previously owned. Narrow width and cabin isolation make it good city car, power and wheelbase a fine highway cruiser. At cruise cont. 60mph got 28mpg. Very pleased. Super low price.

My only complaint is the transmission. It is rough and at certain rates of acceleration appears to not have enough torque for that gear, then downshifts.

I love this car it is everything that I wanted, the only problem that I had with it is that is rear wheel drive and is lousy going uphill in the snow. Hopefully Infiniti will make available an all wheel drive version.

I wanted a Mercedes E500 since I've been driving Mercedes cars three years, but it stickers for $63k with the options I like. I decided to look at the 2003 Infiniti M45. The performance is fantastic! It looks great inside with plenty of new tech equipment and the exterior design is classic and modern. It has 340 hp compared to 302 hp in the Mercedes E500 and $17000 less on the MSRP. WOW!!! I love this car.

Car shopping last weekend, drove this with the dealer saleswoamn in the back seat. Impressively fast and nimble for any car, let alone a heavy one, I found it could comfortably double recommended highway exit ramp speeds w/o noticeable oversteer or tire complaint. The silent V8 had real thrust to adjust high-speed handling and accelerate from 100+ mph. As the owner of an '01 M Coupe, I tend to like odd-duck styling. My impression? This car is fun and off beat. (And probably superior to the E-class my father owns - he thinks so.) I was guessing this was what a Tokyo gangster must drive.
