This is a great little car, built on the European sports sedan pattern, like the Jag, and BMW's, etc. but a more affordable version. Of course that means cheaper materials, but its still a worthy car.
This car is too good. By todays standards it's not the hottest performer, but still better than almost any front wheel drive car can field, certainly in handling, and great for its debut in '93. I've driven mine over 100 many times, it jogs like a dog, it is certainly Autobahn-capable.
Handling is especially superb, the feel and road grip are as good as any other comparable car as far as I can tell. Some other posts complain of slipping on wet corners, but this is clearly a combination of driver/worn tire/road surface condition as I have never had this problem, it depends on your skill in handling this baby, but I'm a professional driver, I've spun 180's in it at will. Rear wheel drive gives you such maneuverability unlike anything you could get from front wheel drive. You just have to know how to do it, and know that auto trans doesn't mean always stick in 4th gear, you can change gears on it for the better performance of your machine!
Adding weights to the trunk is certainly a bad idea, bad for suspension, ride, gas mileage, and makes it tail heavy. The gas tank is right over the axle, this car is not light in the back!!!
One thing I have to complain about to Infiniti is that the tank is rated for 19 gallons. I'd like to see you get 19 gallons of gasoline in it! I max at 15. As far as I can tell, this is because of the fuel filler design, it enters the tank from the side, not the top, so you cannot fill the tank up to full capacity.
Overall this is an awesome little luxury sedan, or sports sedan if you have the T model as I do. 0-60 under 9 seconds is not at all shabby!!!
The interior is well finished, and mine is not at all worn except the driver's seat is wearing, but it's over 10 years old and all, so no complaints here! The sounds system is great and the a/c heating as well, burn to death in the snow or freeze in the summer, it's your choice, all while listening to an immaculate sound from the Bose system. In fact, my a/c gets so cold I have to thaw it at times by running the fan for a couple of minutes without the compressor. Of course it ain't supposed to do that... and oh man that back seat is so comfortable, and so is the driver seat for that matter!
