1994 Infiniti Q45 a 4.5L DOHC variable value timing from North America
The pinnacle of Japanese luxury sport sedans
All I've had to due to date is preventive maintenance things: belts, fan/fan clutch, water pump, and brakes.
I found this gem for $750. One owner, all service records from dealer. Working and healthy active suspension. I was going to buy it as a beater because my G35 got totaled. There was no picture on the advertisement, so thought it would be beat up and only get me through a few months. Once I saw it I paid the money before even starting it up. I know that this is a rare find in this condition, but if these cars have been properly maintained, they are great and reliable transport. If they haven't, they are money pits. Especially the active suspension models.
I have one issue with this car and that is that my local Infiniti dealer doesn't have equipment to diagnose and is unwilling to maintain a car this old. Luckily we have a local shop who was trained by Mr.K himself.
I would say this is not a car for everyone. The lack of cupholders bothers me. Also as others have said, parts can be hard to find. I wouldn't buy this car if I was a student or on a tight budget. I do believe that this is a future classic that will be lusted after in about 10 years and classic car auctions. It's so overbuilt and was way before its time. The active suspension is the most advanced suspension put into a mass-production car.
I love this car and it will run forever with proper maintenance.
The trans can be a bit touchy; I had a inline trans cooler added to mine and I would recommend anyone living in a warmer climate do the same.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
