We couldn't be happier with our vehicle and the buying experience. Saeed was a pleasure to work with and went well beyond just making sure we were satisfied, he made sure we were happy. I found them to be honest and trustworthy, a rare trait among car dealers. Thank you guys, I'll be back for my next vehicle!

I'd avoid the Q50 like the plague - I've had 7 flat tires in 2 years. Can't wait for the lease to end. Dealership and Infiniti USA don't want to acknowledge or deal with the issue but do your research - there are enough stories like mine to educate consumers about this proble..

Good car - Reached a ton before buying!

I read the reviews on here and was nervous about buying the car. My wife and I wanted a 4 door sedan because we already had the Explorer Sport (large SUV). I bought the 2014 and wanted the '15 because of the so so rating s on the '14 Q50... but this car was too good of a deal to pass up because it only had 6K miles on it (Bought Used - prior owner only leased). I have not had any issues with the car since I have owned it ( 1+ month.) The biggest complaint about this car on these reviews has been the electronics...GOOD NEWS! there is a software update for the electronics.. however it still has some really minor bugs. Example: When you start up the car its takes my car approximately 43-46 seconds for the apps to load. With this includes the rear camera "drive aid" lines. So if you hop in your car you can still use the reverse camera but the "drive aid" lines wont show up until your car software has loaded which again takes almost 1 minute. So this is occasionally annoying but not enough for me to hate the car. Other than that, the layout of the electronic is really nice. I am a simple guy who wanted a sharp looking car that had some kick to it ( this car definitely has some speed to it). I also wanted a car that when you sit in it, you are impressed by the look of the dash and the display which the double screens is really sharp. The one real knock I would have on the car is the lack of storage. Also, if you are over 6 foot - this car may be too tight for you but still check it out. I'm 5'11 (200lbs) and feels good but at times a little cramped. I'm not just talking about the trunk, I am talking about in the cabin too. the glove compartment is really small and the armrest storage is not deep at all. Also, the baby seat fits in the car but isn't as tight as I would personally like it... then again we take the Explorer for most long trips with the kids...Summary really fun car to drive and I wouldn't stress too hard on the electronics.

Do not buy if you have any regard for saftey .

I am a 6 time Infiniti owner who made the ill fated mistake of leasing a loaded (every possible option) 2014 Q50S. I am not going to get into the widely reviewed issues with the rushed out, garbage InTouch system or the take you life in your hands DAS steering wonder. On the good side, the car is very attractive, well designed and performs well. That's where it ends. The noise level on the inside is equal to that of riding on a train. The factory supplied (long gone) run flat tires are noisy as hell, are blow out prowen (4 in 2 years). The passenger side seat rattles, the backup and front cameras are total mud and have long delays going on and going off. All of these issues when taken into the dealer and logging complaints with Infiniti have been answered with the typical Infiniti response " CAN NOT REPLICATE" Now 27 months into a 39 month lease my car has been the shop for 5 weeks. The brake pedal will sink to the floor after a 20 mile or so drive. The car does stop, but it stops long and feels unstable. The dealer has replaced the master cylinder after 3 times of doing nothing except for giving me the old " CAN NOT REPLICATE" Now it is the shop again waiting for define intervention from Infiniti. On top of that there is well known issues with the airbag system on this car. 3 Recalls later and 2 malfunction lights I can't say with confidence that they work. In the end, if you are looking for a quality car in the $55,000+ range and you have any value for your sanity and the life of you and your loved ones, run away from this car, this manufacture and their dealer network. I thought I would never write such a review on Infiniti. They have betrayed me and thousands of faithful followers.

It takes some time to appreciate the advanced technology the Q50S Hybrid brings to the table. Once you get it, you won't want to go back to conventional drive trains or steering/suspension.

I was one of the first buyers of the Q50 at the end of 2013 and I bought it because I wanted a sedan and loved the styling. There are several problems with the Q50 but first, the things I like. I definitely have felt safe in the car despite having to have it towed (only once) because the steering started to click it couldn't seem to find it's feet. This only happened once and Infiniti fixed it and paid for the tow. It's a solid car. However, it rides rough, it's noisey, and the worst part is that display/navigation is very unresponsive. It's incredibly annoying to push on the screen and taking as long as 10 seconds to accept the response. I've had the car now for 3 1/2 years and Infiniti has yet to correct this. Whoever designed where the USB port was put must have been a contortionist because it's almost useless. The navigation is stupid and not at all intuitive. Additionally, for the life of me, I cannot understand why I can't make "Eco-Drive" the default??? You always have to start in "Standard" mode. I believe the Q70 drives better and will consider it when my lease is up but unless I were to get a screaming deal, I probably would move on to another brand.

I gave up a G35 for the mileage benefit of a fully loaded Nissan Altima Hybrid, which I rode for 6 years. I returned to Infiniti in desire of muscle, but having been spoiled by the MPG of the Altima Hybrid. Purchasing the Q50 Hybrid Sport AWD at ~33% discount to its new cost after just 11,000 miles, I was able to return to the sporty comfort of Infiniti giving up just 5mpg and gaining updated controls and muscle. Two weeks into ownership, I find myself, enjoying the ride, comfortable on the road, driving at 65mph, less in a rush to get anywhere, and knowing that with a tap of the pedal in sport mode, I can pass most all cars on the road and beat almost any car through the intersection as the red light turns green.

Satisfied with the Infiniti

I was in the market to purchase a Q50, the reviews were scary. Look, the infotainment center is a computer! Just like any desktop computer, it is going to take a minute to boot up & become responsive. So if you are expecting super fast touch screens, do not look at this car. For me, It is quick enough, I never complain about it because I look at it as a computer and interact with it as such! I Love the car and all the features is offers! The ride is smooth, the car is quick & coming from a Hyundai Sonata the difference in quality all around is massive! I bought this car for a long term daily drive & am a happy camper!

Love my Q50 but... What were they thinking???

Inside this sleek, elegant body lies a powerful, well-balanced drivetrain. So what's wrong with it? The electronics, that's what (and the disappointing mpg figures). The Intel-powered navigation and touch screen controls take almost two minutes to boot up. The array and alternate modes of controlling are befuddling. It all detracts from an otherwise very attractive chariot. Shame on Infiniti for launching a product with instruments/interfaces that were obviously either untested or works still in progress.

DON'T BUY! It is the least reliable luxury cars on sale today. I've had 2014 Q50 HYBRID for almost 2 years. I have been having many issues with the car's the steering system, handling, navigation, touchscreens, key-less entry and Bluetooth. Today, I had to bring my car back to the dealership again for DAS repair. The car started going to right by itself and started braking itself causing the risks of crashes. I am done with Infiniti.

I leased a beautiful red Q50 hybrid in October 2014. We live in Wisconsin. In January 2015, the steering froze due to arctic weather in Wisconsin 0 degrees. Dealer had car for over a month to repair. International Infiniti couldn't be bothered with replacing said defective car. Fast forward to January 2016. Guess what? The steering does not work again. Hmm. You need steering in all climates. Do not buy this car under any circumstance. Brakes do not stop well if you hit a bump. The electronics do not work properly. The fuel economy for a hybrid isn't worth the extra money. Infiniti should recall all of these cars until the defect is fixed. This car will kill someone.

Extraordinary highway cruiser. Loads of horsepower to effortlessly pass, refined and comfortable suspension, fantastic seating comfort, concert hall audio quality, and a real world 34.3mpg at an average speed of 77mph with a/c running. This vehicle is near ideal for rolling down the highway.

This review is coming from someone who likes to drive aggressively. Two thumbs up. 2 cars ago I had a 2010 VW GTI. Loved it, 'til I drove it (almost literally) to the ground. It had to have a new engine at 80k mi, so instead, I was then in the market for a new vehicle. I've always liked smaller cars and their handling and steering, so this was somewhat of a big step to take to go with a "mid-size sports luxury sedan." I had the 2014 Q50 for a year and I really liked it; I upgraded to a 2015 Q50 with a few more options (they took my 2014 as a trade-in). I'd never driven an Infiniti before the 2014 Q50, but my friend has/had a Nissan Maxima, another friend had an Infiniti M37, and a friend has an Infiniti EX37. My friends' opinions about the reliability of Infiniti kind of persuaded me to try it, and I'm glad I did. It is "less connected" to the road, especially with the way I want to drive, but I still enjoy it, but this means a softer, smoother ride--a comfy drive. My friend even commented on the smooth suspension as a passenger (although, he had a BMW 3-series, so that's a pretty big difference). The big 327HP V6 engine is pretty powerful. With a 3 adult passengers and a trunk full of luggage, the Q50 still has no trouble accelerating quickly. The Bose surround sound is pretty nice; very similar to Nissan's. You have to play around with the sound settings to get it just the way you like it (took me about a week). Sometimes the bass can be too loud; depends on what kind of music you listen to. Navigation is decent. Back-up camera is good (and the display is big too). Note: There is a big difference between the non-premium version and the premium version of the Q50, the premium version has steer-by-wire, which gives it a much more disconnected feel. You get used to it after a while (of all the loaner cars I've ever gotten), but they are drastically different. My Q50 does not have steer-by-wire. If money were not an obstacle, I would've gotten the Q50S for the sport suspension/tuning.

My last Infiniti

Good looking car, strong engine for the most part, comfortable interior on road trips, but overall a disappointment. Definitely buyer's remorse. The inTouch electronics are buggy, slow, or just plain don't work. Dealer has been really nice, but they can't change the poor quality and design of the manufacturer's electronics. I have a complaint logged with Infiniti Consumer Affairs, and they were also really nice, but unwilling to do anything about the problems I've had. I've had the car about a year and a half, and its been in the shop cumulatively for almost a month. And after today, when several functions of the car electronics disappeared, I now have to schedule it into the shop again. I have never had problems like this with any car I've ever owned. My second Infiniti, but it will be my last.

I used to love the Infiniti brand and my Q50 is the forth one I have owned. Something has happened to Infiniti reliability over the last several years and it's moving in the wrong direction. The worst part is that Infiniti leadership doesn't seem to care. This is also the opinion of numerous Infiniti employees I have talked to. What's good: great engine and performance. What's bad: electronics system is a hot mess. Has been in for repairs four times. The Infiniti InTouch system is a joke. The back of my trunk is already developing a rust spot and the car is barely over a year old. Problems with the electronic door locks that leave me out in the rain trying to get into my car!

This is one of the biggest mistake ever. Not only did OC Infiniti ripped me off, they sold me a lemon. First and foremost, this car stinks. From the AC to the dead body order coming from the sunroof. Apparently there is a TSB for the smell. Haven't taken the car in yet. This will be the 3rd time I've taken the car to the Dealership for the smell. The first 2 times was a waste of time. 2nd, the car gets horrible MPG's. I'm avg 15mpg city driving. The steering wheel uses "remote control steering" technology. And it feels exactly like it sounds. Ever played with a remove control car from the 99 cent store? The steering wheel control in this 50k car has the same feel. CRAP!

I leased a Q50S AWD Hybrid in Nov 2013. The first couple of months I had problems with the Infiniti Connection technology that even the dealership couldn't figure out how to fix. Since then it has been a very pleasant experience. The recent addition of the inTouch apps is nice. The handling and cornering is the same if not better than BMW 335. In Sport mode the acceleration is awesome and the paddle shifters are very responsive. When accelerating from low speed in standard or eco mode the transmission appears confused which gear to shift to first and sometimes fails to respond properly to the driver's foot on the gas pedal.

We leased a Q50S with Deluxe Touring package back in Oct 2014... it's everything we've expected; FUN TO DRIVE! Good handling, exciting technology that comes with the Deluxe Touring package. The car is very stylish (specially in sport model), the interior is very well put together and the seats are very comfortable. We upgraded from a G37x to this car, some of the difference are that the Q50 is a bit lower in the back, the wind noise is very irritating, but no complaints about the run flats. They are designed like that, they will give you a bit more of a road noise than regular tires. Over all... happy campers with this car!!

I'my not a professionally trained driver looking to evaluate this car on how many Gs it pulls. I'm an ordinary guy who commutes 100 miles per day and bought this car to drive it like most people will - on traffic filled highways and streets with stop lights, not hairpin turns. It is whisper quiet on the highway, faster than anything else you'll see on the road, and sips fuel. Technology is beyond what I need, but has nice features. I didn't get the deluxe technology package because I am more than capable of staying in my lane and hitting the brakes. Bottom line, this is a really nice sedan (it's not a sports car). Extra note, it's great in the snow.

I traded in my 2013 Accord 4 cyl with the q50 hybrid. I regret for my decision. The acceleration is uneven especially at lower speed and in the city. The transition from hybrid to gasoline is abrupt and feel embarrassed because even the passengers can feel it and questioned if there's anything wrong with the car. The acceleration is unpredictable at lower speed and there were many times, I felt the car lunge forward when I only step on the pedal just a little and other times, I had to step on it hard before it will take off. After driving for 5000 miles, I felt the car a lot heavier than the accord and the handling is not that much better which I expected more from a RWD.

I have been driving this car for a month. It has excessive wind noise, engine noise and road noise -- far more than expected for a car in this price range. A harsh ride too. Severe torque steer as if it was a front-wheel-drive car. About 10% of the time, it doesn't recognize that I have the key in my pocket. About 25% of the time, it beeps a loud "alarm" when, after I park the car and turn it off, I open the door. Strong engine, but I am only averaging 17.4 MPG in mixed driving (pretty bad in my opinion for this small car).

After leasing the car for about 6 months, 5k miles, here's my assessment. Accelerating from standstill is great, the electric motor really provides a smooth takeoff combined with the gas engine for the power. In "sport" mode it is fast (0-60 in 4.9s). However, taking turns or windy road is a different matter, I never feel the car is planted like the 3-series, car feels unstable at times. Sometimes the auto brake, lane departure tech get in the way of driving, I usually turn it off on local streets. The lane departure prevention is of little use because when the lane curves too much it won't correct for you. The touch-screen computer is extremely SLOW, needs a faster processor.

Although I enjoy the way the car drives, when I purchased it I was told that "software updates" would correct any problems. Bottom line, over a year later I have to reboot the computer (turn the car off and on and it takes 45 seconds to boot) because the center console is blank, radio doesn't work, sensors for detecting near objects (like my garage posts) don't stop beeping, radio cuts in and out (not reception), apps don't work.... need I say more? Car doesn't live up to billing which is why I bought it. I object to the way they rolled this out and would not buy another Infinity. Never had this problem with my prior Lexus.

I have owned this car for almost a year. Outstanding power, 15MPG city (NYC), 25 highway. Ride can be a little rough at times. Nice interior and outstanding BOSE sound system. Seat comfort and room is fine (6'1"). FOLLOW UP REVIEW: I have now had this car for two years. I have had the car in for two info system software updates with no success. After starting the car the info system fails to boot up a few times a month. When it does boot it takes forever for the icons to appear. There is also a time lag for the rear camera to come on after putting the car in reverse. The seat belt shoulder restraint fails to retract on the driver side. If you drop a passenger off that was sitting in the front passenger seat the seat belt warning sign comes on as though someone is in the seat without engaging their seat belt. I have been told by the dealer that the new models have a faster processor in the info system. The tire noise on concrete highways is the worst. You might as well turn the radio off because you can't hear it at all!!! I'm glad it's a lease. One year left.

I had a 2012 G37S, so this is a direct comparison. The Q50 isn't bad but it's a more refined and watered down G. The build is more solid with tighter fitting exterior joints and more solid interior. My G would creak and pop over any imperfection, this is much more solid of a car with a stiffer structure. The steering is not like the G AT ALL! New steer by wire is HORRIBLE! I have the elect assist and it has more feel but on center isn't great and too light. The car is quieter, but could be better. The run flat tires are prob the culprit. The gas mileage is pretty good, avg 30.9 on 600 mile trip at 65-75 mph. The infotainment system is half baked and needs major work.

Excellent New Model

This is my second Infiniti. I Previously owned the initial model year 2003 Infiniti G35. 12 years old, 225,000+ miles and ran like new. The new Q50 is a spectacular car. The fit and finish of the vehicle is on par with a BMW, Lexus, etc. The attention to detail is evident throughout. The navigation system and iPad like internal systems (music, navigation, concierge, etc.) touchscreen adds significantly to the driver experience. Alternative driving modes including Sport mode afford the driver incredible engine and drivetrain responsiveness. When combined with the drive by wire handling, which has to be experienced to be appreciated, it provides a great overall driver experience. Well it's been over 2 years driving this car. The car is a pleasure. Fun to drive, excellent handling (best of any car I have owned), tremendous acceleration, comfortable on long drives, quiet and great sound system. Leased the car now I will buy it.

Despite its shortcomings, I love my car

I purchased my Q50 in mid-March. It was a demo with 1700 miles on it. The car was delivered pretty much flawless. I love the look of the interior/exterior, and the feel/comfort of the car is outstanding. The navigation system has worked fine for me. No mishaps, even driving on country roads. The interior is nicely laid out and the technology "concepts" are awesome. I just wish the "In Touch" did what it was marketed to do. I made the mistake of speeding up the delivery process since I had spent so much time in finance, so the salesman pitched the "apps" as if they worked. That angers me. But overall, I love my car and wouldn't trade it in for it's shortcomings.

Would love to have my G37 back

I made a hasty (and regrettable) decision to trade in my G37 6 months ago for the Q50. My payment is less, but since it's costing me ALOT more in gas, it was hardly worth the trade. Really dislike the tedious (and not too reliable) navigation system (was told it would be a big improvement over the Navtech that I had in the G37 - I don't agree). I wish I had gone with a Lexus or BMW. I hardly see any Q50's on the road...I think I know why.

Well...it looks good...

I leased the base model with the sunroof about 1.5 weeks ago. I didn't want to pay for (or deal with) the electronic issues and gizmos and the base version hit my target price. It looked great, drove well, and met my needs for size. The downside is this car smells...bad. Two others like it smelled bad, too, but the dealership claimed that whatever I was smelling would wear off or they'd take care of it. After a few days, I returned and was told there was nothing they could do and I could trade it, lemon law it, or try to air it out. No luck. Software is buggy and slow and they are still saying apps are coming in 1 more month. I'm regretting my choice but, at least it looks good. Update 6/16 Infiniti let me down. I thought they were a class act but they are not. After a long period of denial, they finally acknowledged they had a problem with the smell coming from the drainage system around the sunroofs of the Q50. Once they replaced it, the smell lingered for a while but eventually went away. Unfortunately, they wouldn't do anything about the electronics. Still slow to load and buggy as can be. So, where even cheap cars will have guide lines on their backup cameras as soon as you shift, with the Q50 you have to wait like two minutes. The clock will sometimes show only a face with no hands because the computer has lost the time/date. The radio stations you've programmed will sometimes just disappear. The automatic climate control will just stop functioning and you have to reboot the computer. Most of the available functionality and features won't work (internet, email, text, etc.) None of it is end of world stuff...just annoying for the most expensive car I've ever purchased/leased. To be fair, I enjoy driving it as far as driving goes. The power is there when you want it, it's comfortable, no complaints there. Still like the way it looks, too. The headlights don't reach out enough on low beam which can be hazardous, though. I've noticed a few times that the sensor for the passenger seat airbag wasn't working properly and, as it turns out, I just received a notice of a recall on that issue. I don't regret getting it, I enjoy driving it, but every time I consider that I could have purchased a much cheaper car with more features and functionality, I feel like it was a mistake I won't make again. I will not buy a car that doesn't work fully again or from a company that has the nerve to say "that's just the way it was designed" when something is clearly not right. I had a few Accords before this and all were great cars for a lot less money.

Q50 IS A PIECE OF JUNK

I wouldn't recommend this car to anyone. Within the first 8 months of ownership, my Q50 had software problems, a leaking differential seal, 2 bad sensors which produced daily error messages. One even stated to shut the car down. It also had 2 recalls for a steering issue and the OCS system was incorrectly calibrated. Infiniti has refused to take back this lemon, so now I have to try to receive fair treatment through my state's Lemon Law. I should have purchased a LEXUS!

I've had my car for 1 month now, and I am very impressed. The power and handling is excellent. The black on black looks sleek and mean. The interior quality is top notch, and it's full of nice options. Yes, the computer takes a bit of time to power up, but it's no big deal. You still have immediate access to the back-up camera, climate controls, and radio controls via the steering wheel buttons. Stop whining, people, and just enjoy driving this machine. Not a single problem with this car yet. I did not get the navigation, no need for it. And I don't know why people are complaining about the run flat tires. The tires are fine. This car is simply fun to drive!

I purchased my Q50 just recently, I got the total safety package including drive by wire, the radar activated brakes, the camera that views the road, etc... It's the best car I've ever had in my life! Comfort is superb for long trips, fuel economy is only 1L/100km more than my old Chevy Cobalt. The engine has a frightening amount of power to it, this car accelerates on 0.2 seconds longer from 0-100km/h than a Bentley Continental GT! It's a real powerhouse! I love the safety packages, I picked this car so my wife would have good comfort and safety and she loves the seats, the built-in heat and all around smooth ride. [non-permissible content removed]

I traded my G37 (that I loved) for the Q50. At first, I commented that I enjoyed the car more than I thought I would. Steering issues that others reported were not an issue with me. Electronics and tech are cool but finicky and can be distracting. After just three months in the car it died on me on the highway. Infiniti Connections was not a help in getting a tow truck. Two weeks plus at the Infiniti dealer no results in getting issue resolved. Two visits from Infiniti engineers and they want to run more tests. I'm told Hybrid battery discharged and the transmission is bad. But no resolution. Local dealer is trying to help but no word or help from corporate.

This is my third Infiniti - G35, G37S and now the Q50. I have loved all of them but this is by far the best of the bunch. Everything about this car is great including the technology, which is amazing. The handling and the ride are better than both of the previous cars.

We purchased the Q50 because we loved our G35X so much. When we purchased the Q50 in early October 2013, we knew there were issues with the computer system. The salesperson told us that there would be a fix in November and we would be contacted. During October and November, we experienced a range of issues with the navigation system and one touch system. We had to reboot the system almost every time we drove the car. We were not contacted for the fix in November or December and we started to experience many steering issues. My wife contacted the Pittsburgh Infiniti dealer to no avail. I guess they were waiting for someone to be killed by the steering problem before taking action. Review update - 8/12/2016: we have owned the car now for almost three years. It has never lived up to our expectations. Cochran Infiniti (where we bought it) has not helped with liking the car. There have been many recalls on the steering and overall technology package on the car. The updates to the computer are poor or simply do not work after they have been performed. Either the dealer has poor techs or the updates suck. Not only will I never buy another Infiniti, I will not buy anything from Cochran. I believe that the majority of the issues we experienced were due to the new model, but neither the dealer or Infiniti have done right with resolving the issues.

I have owned 4 Infinitis before this one. 2007 FX35(loved it), 2012 G37XS(loved it), 2012 FX35 with Deluxe touring (Everyone loved this one) 2013 M37XS (I traded in my 2006 550i manual transmission because my M37XS made it feel slow) and lastly my Hagane Blue Q50 Hybris sport. I was really excite about getting 31 MPGs on the hughway in this car because I drive alot. The closest I have been able to get is 28 MPGs on the highway using cruise control. I use a simple fomula MPG = (miles driven)/(gallons). The car would say one number but it was always high by almost 3 MPGs. If it said 29, I would calculate 26-26.5. Unacceptable. Every car I've owned I have been able achieve the posted MPGs.

This car represents the the company as a whole. FAILURE. Not only did the stealership pull a bait and switch on me by changing the price of the car from sales to finance, but their customer service after the sales was just horrid. Go to the Q50 forum and you can read hundreds of owners who regret buying this car. Several members have successfully gotten Infiniti to buy back the car. DAS is a gimmick. It doesn't work in the real world. It feels artificial and has tons of bugs. The Intouch unit is laggy and prematurely released. Everyone who bought the Q50 were unwilling beta tester for the company. Avoid Infiniti and the Q50. This car sucks and so does the company.

I bought a new Q50 Sport AWD in mid-October. It is fun to drive. Performance and handling are great. The interior is well appointed and comfortable. It looks and feels luxurious. The major disappointment with this car is the Infiniti InTouch system. This system is used to control the navigation, climate, and audio systems. The system is takes a long time to first boot up and then is slow to respond to user input. The worst part is that it crashes and locks up all the controls. This was improved with a software upgrade but is still an issue. It's not fun when the navigation system gets reset while following route directions.

I have been a long time Infiniti owner, I have owned the G37X, M56 and JX. I bought the Q50 when it first came out and has had these issues: 1. Slow responsiveness of touch screen. 2. GPS loosing signal and going to a blank screen. 3. Electric steering locking while in drive (major safety issue!) 4. Doors locking and not able to get into our out of the car! (major safety issue!) I signed a 39 month lease and I am stuck...hopefully things continue to break so the car can fit into the lemon law and I can get rid and break this lease. Based on these issues, I do not recommend the Infiniti Q50...wait 3 years before buying it.

This car is nearly perfect. It has a combination of looks, power, and technology that's unbeatable in its class, except for one thing: it bundles features that should be standard into expensive packages. I was ready to purchase the Q50 AWD Premium with navigation and leather. But in order to get memory seats and a reverse tilt down mirror, you have to move up to the Deluxe Package (another $3,100). This is unacceptable. I do NOT want the Direct Adaptive Steering that's part of this package. Really disappointed Infiniti would force its customers to buy this new technology that many do not want.

Forbes even says don't buy

Driven this car for over 2 months. The poor reviews given by other sites is deserved. Frequent reboots of the computer, no sonar, useless directional lines on backup camera, over 50 computer upgrades in only 8 weeks…..think twice about this car. Having owned now for almost 3 years and ready to TRADE. Will not look at another infiniti. Continued computer problems, extremely bad tires, poor power delivery, back up directional lines still MIA most of the time. The most annoying of all is the slip light comes on when the weather is beautiful dry and warm. The car then losses power? They can't find the problem?

I purchased my brand new Infiniti Q50 a few weeks ago. Everything about this car is great. Superb performance and quality. I was looking for a luxury sports sedan that can easily fit a child seat + 2 adults (occasionally) in a backseat and has reasonable trunk space. Also looked at C class and BMW 3 series, but they felt too small in that aspect. The main advantage of Infiniti Q50 in this segment is that 37k base car gets you 5.2 sec 0-60 performance. ~330 horses with no turbos, sounds awesome!

Excellent car! Perfect size for the sport luxury sedan. Quality feel inside and out. Quiet cabin, only 3.7 liter engine roar when pushed. Tech features are really nice, easy to use. The car can literally drive itself on the highway, you must see this... No way you can rear-end anyone, with car braking for you. Around view monitor with those sonar and radar warnings beeping and pulsing making garage entry and exit just a breeze. But, the most importantly, when get bored with all that automation, slight push to the gas pedal is leaving the "crowd" behind. The only concern when that happens, those runflat Dunlop tires are stiff and noisy. Not expecting them to last either, luckily.

It's the perfect car for me.

I thoroughly enjoy this car. It's crazy fast, fun to drive and gets 25mpg. It's very quiet inside and has the best sound system I've ever heard. It has all the fun of a G37 but in classy, quiet, comfortable, luxury package. It feels very solid when you pound it. The handling is superb. I prefer to drive myself so I elected not to get all the high tech gismos. I did get AWD for the Minnesota winters, can't wait to utilize it. It's so fun to drive I already have 6000 miles on it. Try one, you'll find it's the best value out there. I get complements everyday on what a sharp looking car it is.

I love this car just purchased it brand new, right off the lot. I drove a fully loaded 2008 infiniti G35 sedan before this one (now its my work car lol). I love infiniti's because they are reliable, fast, fun, and stylish! So far I've put 6k miles on it & it has been a dream to drive.. i mean infiniti really outdone itself this time. Everything is excellent (seriously), infiniti's version of the i-drive system is very simple , not too much of a learning curb at all. All the driving modes really help, i have the hybrid so i avg 32 mpg on gas with 354 horses :) .. no words can describe how great this car is, don't believe me? Go test drive one, the infiniti Q50 won't let you down .
