Best price by a long shot

I bought a 2013 Nissan Altima in October. By far Chicago Auto Place offered the best price around which happened to be well below blue book value. I've had the car for about two months and there have neen zero issues. They were very upfront and even provided me a Carfax on the vechicle. I went through my local credit union for financing, but the lender Justyna at Chicago Auto Place did go over my rates on my loan to ensure that I was getting a great deal. The sales agent we worked with was Rob and he was very personable and friendly. I'd highly recommend this dealership.

What a great car for any amount of money, but even more so when the prices are so low. Very fast, and luxurious. If you are looking to buy, I'd recommend finding one with the premium package as it adds a lot of goodies. On the description above it did not let me select Premium but only "base". Premium adds air conditioned front seats and many cool things for rear seat passengers like electric reclining seats and radio and AC controls.

Ridiculous value for such a luxurious car

I was looking for an every day car for myself after my previous car, a 2000 Dodge Neon finally died. The Neon was my first new car purchase and served me well through the years, but being 12 years older and more successful, I wanted to get something nice to drive that wasn't going to cost an arm and a leg. I searched Craigslist for about a month in the hopes of finding a deal and low and behold, I find this beauty. I honestly thought the $15k price listing was a type-o until I did some research and saw how much these cars depreciated in value. No matter. After viewing/driving the car I felt like I was getting away with robbery.

Great find

I searched months for the right new car and found it in the 2005 Infiniti Q45. It is powerful, quiet, smooth, comfortable and reliable. Most important I am as pleased today as I was when I first made the purchase.

Have owned a caddy, and Lexus, gm and Chrysler, Ford cars. Nothing like a Q45. What a beauty! Love it and strongly recommend as a preowned. Excellent value.

I drive 2005 Infiniti Q45 while my wife drives 2005 Lexus ES330 (got the Lexus first). Falling love with the Lexus right away, which does everything best. I thought the Lexus has finest steeling ever. Well, after the Q45, there is no way for me to trade with my wife’s Lexus, the smoothest steeling ever! Solid and heavy. very firm handling. don't feel 4000 lbs at all when I curve the car around. Manual mode (5 speed clutch-less) shift is so fun! Know how 340 hp can do, use the manual mode and 3rd gear,step on the gas! Now I know what is a difference between $40K and $60K cars! I am so spoiled by the Q45, I afraid I will have a hard time to think of other car.

Loss of Value

This is a great car, but I would recommend that all buyers interested in Infinitis first look at the tradein values before buying. My Q45 was $64K when purchased and is now valued at less than $30K! Infinitis, for some reason, sink like rocks. No matter the condition, mileage, etc, they lose value much faster than their competitors. Check Edmunds and Blue Book before buying... Caveat Emptor!

You cannot go wrong if you buy it used

This is the best car for the money, Only if you buy it used. Let somebody else pay Depreciation. This car is great, Smooth runing, little to no road noise, and very nice looking inside and out. The exterior is smooth but does not stand out in a crowd. But if you are looking for great value , a great ride , great luxury features, great quality, and great reliabilty then the Q45 is your car. By buying my Q used save $23,000 dollars from the sticker. My 2005 Q45 with XM radio and 18,000 miles cost $35,000 in May 06. . But if you want to pay $20,000+ more for the Lexus or Mercedes name. that will be all you are getting just the name. The Q45 is the best luxary car value on the market.

After owning Mercedes, Acuras and Maximas I have owned three used Q45's and their is no doubt that this car is the best of the bunch especially at the price. You should be ranking this car higher than you are!

This car is fun to drive. Does not lean on turns. Highly reliable. Solid feel and quality workmanship. A better car than Lexus 430 which I owned for four years and would not recomend.Ride and handling is similar to a Mercedes, which I also own.

This vehicle is prety much everything I expected. The back-up TV could be brighter and I would like a brightness control on the navagation map. I would also like the option to NOT go to the nighttime map display when the lights come on. Standard daytime running lights would be nice too. NISSAN needs to dump those d--n low profile tires. While they improve handeling: they are ugly, transmit road noise, and ride rough as h-ll!! That's prettty much it for me.

I owned a Q45 before I bought an 02 BMW 745i. I missed the Q and am glad I'm back to the Q45. The Q has similar features and options, is quieter, more comfortable, performs just as good and is $15K less. I 've owned Jaguar, Mercedes and even Rolls Royce, but there is no finer value than the Q45. If you're considering a luxury car, you won't be disappointed with the Q45.

My second Infiniti. First was 2003 M45. If you don't need a car for your ego but want a reliable, well equipped highway cruiser, then the Q45 is your car. A total redesign is due in 2007. Definitely nicer to look at than the new BMW 740 or anything else from BMW these days!! And the Q like all Japanese luxury cars are superior in reliability, a luxury the car critics often don't give much credence to but is a big issue for me. I'm sold on Infinti!!!

This is a wonderful car, period! Amazing horse power. Test drove MB E500 which is nothing compare with this Q45. Quietly going more than 90 mph even before you know it. Beautiful intellegent cruise system.

Has a very solid feel, if you need HP to get up and go, no problem, lots of power, lots of interior toys (a bit cumbersome at first to use). I personally do a bit of hgwy driving and this is a pretty good car to be in. (Great cruise control feature)

Having driven luxury cars for the past 12 years, I was pleased to purchase the Q45. It is everything that I thought it would be and more. The only disappointment is the lack of an "Onstar" like commmunications device like similar cars. My biggest disappointment is the lack of advertising committed to the Infiniti line. Mercedes, Lexus and Acura devote more time and monies to advertising their luxury cars, which in my opinion do not even come close to the value for dollar of the Q45

This is my second q45. This a lot of car for the price. I never worry about breakdowns. The car is flawless and i have owned jags, cadillacs, acura rls, etc. Its handling is superior to the lexas 430 and most all cars. Dealer service is a 10, being tops. Also, lots and lots of power. This car has been overlooked by car reviewers. The various comments leed me to believer that they never drove the infiniti q45

great but I wish it was prettier

My beautiful 93 Jag was totaled, so I test drove the Lexus, BMW, VW Phaeton, and for handling, power (340 hp), good visibility, comfort, and relatively easy to control gadgets this seemed to be best. Great turning ratio, terrific techtonic tranny, sports mode, slip differential mode, fab radio, cd and sirius satellite, bose speakers, heat and air seats, and the navigational map system; voice controlled. My old jag was prettier but this baby's got it all.

Came out of an SUV for the previous 12 years and now in a Q45. Very impressed. Very quite, very solid, nice looks, all of the toys. Front seats have lots of room and the rear seats have nice room as compared to some of the others. Test drove the 7 series BMW, Lexus, and Jag. In my mind this car was in the middle of all of those if not the best feel. If I had to complain about anything it would have been the overwhelming desire to go school to learn how to use everything in the car. After a week, however I was up to speed on how to use everything. Just my opinion, GRLBEG

When I bought my Q45 I was excited just to be an owner of classy, powerfull car. After driving it for a year and half I find myself admiring it every time I get in or out, Knowing that those who notice the sleek, obscure design can't help but admire it. When on a freeway I enjoy the power to be in front of anyone.
