Pros: The brakes are amazing.
Cons: Front passenger seat-Does not adjust up/down.
Advice: It smokes Lexus, Acura and all BMW 5 series..Except M5.Owned 3x Lexus vehicles. This was the best performance vehicle for the cost value. Best back seat room for adults. Stadium seating in the back. Like the tech gear, rear camera, voice activation that actually works and the bluetooth for my blackberry. The passing power is top-notch and my boys have nick' named the car: The spaceship. All good here.
Pros: The overall look of the car
Cons: Bumpy ride
Advice: n/aCar looks great, and was very comfortable. Great Sound system! The ride seemed a little bumpy to me.
Pros: Engine and performance
Cons: Having to wait to get it. But I'll live
Advice: If you are looking at BMW, Audi, Mercedes or Lexus. Make sure you drive this.I just bought an M45 Sport unfortunately, I can't pick it up until March 1. The dealer was very helpful and prior to buying, the dealer let me test drive a demo model for a day. This is the most amazing car I have ever driven in this car segment. The 335hp engine is powerful yet controlled and refined; you never are at a want for power or acceleration but all the power is delivered smoothly. The car looks stately and elegant but expresses an aggressiveness I like. Additionally, the technology in the car is amazing and the voice control and navigation systems are simple to use. Finally, this cars offers everything and more than other comparable cars in this segment (Lexus, BMW, Audi and Mercedes) at thousands less. I can't wait till 3/1!!
Cons: Altima looks
Advice: Negotiate on the price, they are scared of the new GSHonestly, I could not wait to drive this car. I have contacts that let me drive this and the new Lexus GS as well. I wanted a sportier sedan, automatic with top quality. Honestly, price is what sold me the car. It was not better than the GS overall nor the 5 series. But the dealer was so scared I would walk when I mentioned GS and 5 series, I got the car UNDER MSRP. Amazing! The interior is gorgous, wood or aluminum. The seats are nice and comfy. Why a Bose stereo??? The car feels heavy but that V-8 purrs, man it is fast. The looks, it looks like a giant ALtima or Maxima or G35. Not a favorite. But for the price, the car could not be beat. I just hope I don't regret it come resale time.
