Bad news, dude. First, the "a" in "Q45a" designates an active suspension, which only adds about $250 to the book value of a plain Q45. And that book value, btw, per my copy of Kelly Blue Book, is only $2525 for a private seller sale. Granted, yours is worth more if it only has 10K miles on it--but not $5000 more.

The other factor is that large luxury cars, be them from BMW, Mercedes, Lexus or whomever, depreciate like mad no matter what the condition.

While the Q was a good car, it was (and is) never desirable so there is a limited market.

Where are you located. With that low of miles I would be interested in buying from you. However not for more than $5000 to $5500. I'm in oregon

Hey Guys, I just purchased a 1991 Q45A about a month ago (for no more than $5000) and the suspension on all 4 sides are bad. Other than scrapping the car, do any of you know where I can get new or used suspensions from? I think they also work with an air system too. Please help..

This note is for the person selling the Q45A. If you haven't gotten rid of the car as yet, I can go from around $6 to $6,500.00 if you really want to get rid of the car. If this is an option, please e-mail me with the title (Q45A FOR SALE) at: speedy3_rkd@yahoo.com. Thanks.

Hello I just got a 1991 Q45 it has 139800 on it, now the only thing is the person that had this car had it sitting for about 2 years. The idle goes up and down like it wants to turn off, but when I drive it it's fine, no problems.

Now I was told that I should just give it a tune up or add fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank. This is the first time I've seen this car and after driving it I love it :) It has a lot of power and handles well. I want to do a tune up, but I can't seem to find a manual. I was looking at the engine an I was lost, I couldn't find the spark plugs. Can someone help me out with this? I'm just trying to save some money. BTW I got a good deal on the car; that's why I got it with the misfiring.

Also I found that my brake light doesn't work, any ideas? When I turn on my lights they turn on, but when I step on the brake it doesn't work. I checked the fuse box inside and fuse was good, is there any other place I can check? I also checked the brake pedal switch and moved it in and out, but still doesn't work. I'm so lost... but I still love the car and so does the wife...

With the brake lights, check the fuse in the trunk; it controls all the back lights. It's in a pink plastic box with a little metal thing sticking up. Most likely it's that. I have replaced that fuse twice.

It is the mass air flow sensor ground wire that is bad. Go to a pull yard, get a mass air flow sensor off and harness, and put it on, and test it to see if it is good. I have owned a lot of these cars, and they are a lot of work, especially the active suspension.
