1994 Infiniti Q45 from North America
Not that great of a car... just really fast!!
I got the car 6 years old from a wealthy older lady who had 4 cars. I paid $10,000 cash and my parents paid $10,000 cash. The car is okay... I drove a 1992 INFINITI G20...a BIG difference in power!!
I now need a transmission...$2500-$3500.
Struts have been replaced TWICE ($840 for 2 front struts, not including labor ($400) ) So That's about $2500 total!!
My driver side door has triggered the alarm several times before.
My trunk release button (located on driver door) doesn't respond anymore... I have to use the key... which is a pain if you're at the golf course!!
The tuneups are like $800 at the dealership (I ONLY get service there). Which is a little more than a Mercedes.
I'm about to sell it for a Mercedes S500.
The car is quick (well before the transmission gave out. However I can still drive the car... but the RPM gauge does not exceed past 3.5).
The handling is over rated... not as good as I'd like it to be...
I'm 6'2...and I've ridden in the backseat... and that's very uncomfortable...
I would own another Q45...just because of the power!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wow... I just bought an Infiniti q45, 1994, cheaply. Everyone that I talk to says that I got a smokin' deal... but, where do you get parts for this car other than the dealership? There are not a lot of these cars in the auto traced, or the wrecker. You sound like you like this type of car, but have had issues. So if you could tell me where to hunt for extras, by all means...

I may have a solution to your problem with the trunk having to be opened with the key. There is a switch in the glove compartment that is very easy to accidentally bump, causing the trunk switch to be deactivated. Hopefully this helps.
