It has personality meaning it looks really nice both on the inside and the outside. People always comments on what a nice vehicle I have. It rides like you're in an airplane. It has the sound of when an airplane is taking off. It grabs the road when driving making me feel safe especially going around a corner. The only drawback is it has a somewhat limited visibility inside. I cannot see around the vehicle comfortably when driving.

It is very easy to drive and operate.I've had no major problems with this vehicle.I am a very short person 5'1 so the seats don't adjust enough so I have a Lot of major blind spots.It has a lot of miles on it and it still drives and rides like a new car.I have looked into trading it in for a newer model.

It is a long lasting and reliable car. You will not have many issues from the car and does take a great deal of maintenance to keep it going.

I like how spacious my Infiniti is, I can move large items and take a good amount of family on a road trip and fit comfortably. It drives smoothly and I do not have too many issues from it. The only issue that came up was a recall with the airbag, but Infinite fixed it free of charge of course.
