As I expected, it's a one amazing car. It's just a driver for me, but it's got everything I want, and a few other gadgets that I can "discover" when I get bored one day.
Super silky smooth V8, unbelievable how quiet it is. This engine is also gutsy and moves this beast with ease. The premium gas usage is pricey if you are not used to it, and if you push this car, that only encourages the gas gauge to fall rapidly. Still, 18-23 MPG is easily manageable. This car is really fun to drive, unlike the larger fleet cars such as the Town Car and the older Devilles.
The large wheels are surprisingly fitting for this car. It adds to the look, rather than detracts.
The AWD is very nice for wet days, but, it doesn't do a lot for the snow. The car does better than, let's say, the good old rear drive Cadillacs, but it's nowhere near rally car or truck AWD traction. I didn't expect it to be though.
The stereo is a bit hard to work if you are just beginning to use it. It takes time to understand what all of those buttons do.
It's very complicated inside when you first get in. The push button ignition is a nice feature, along with the navigation and on board computer.
I had a choice of both the M45 or the Q45, but I was partial to the much improved styling of the car since 03. It's a lot prettier than the previous M series, and better looking (in my opinion) than the Q45.
I wonder what the main difference is between the my car and the Q45. I didn't even bother to drive the Q, just because I didn't like the way it looked. I hear that this car may have out done it's higher priced relative, and from the experience I've had, I wouldn't doubt it.
Well, in all, I like this car a lot. It's one of those cars that people look at and ask you "What is that?" They are not common at all, but, definitely worth the look.
