Well here are my feelings, (can't say thoughts as that would indicate I had a brain when I buy cars and I don't, strictly emotional) Cars are lousy investments and if I bought for transportation I could still have my 2000 MBZ E class Turbo Diesel.jaak said:
Hey Don, having done it, any tips?
I got to know the Infiniti dealership owner a bit when I had the G35 as I traded in a Mercedes on it. So When the Fx45 and 35 came in he wanted to sell me one. So I got to use each for a weekend. Impressions.bob1 said:I think I'd do it again. I voted that I would so I might as well back it up. The MO is unique, it has style, it has class. I have had just a few annoyances but not any problems. The space is great and ride is comfortable and the handling good.
I must say I like the Infiniti FX just a little more in the style department. Grip has posted someplace that he thinks the Murano is a better vehicle. I'd like to hear that again Grip.
I also like the Infiniti G-35. That however would replace my Altima.
I might add that I am very happy with that car. Never one visit to the Dealer for a problem.
I believe in having both a car and SUV. The MO is not in the same category as what we call a traditional SUV but it's close enough for me.
One more reason to get another MO. I like this org web site too much to leave!
AAHHHH! Bob, thanks for the heads up. I will definetely remember this warning :4:bob1 said:NOOOOOO! AHHHHH!
SugarRush, don't do it man. I traded my Grand Cherokee for the MO.
Take my word on this, it was noisy, unreliable, the rear seat was horrendous to exit and enter. It felt like I was driving either a Sherman tank or a bulldozer. Make a turn and everyone in the car would fall over. Really a bad ride. At 80K it was ready for the junk heap. The rear end started humming so loud that you could not carry on a conversation. People who owned it said, oh yeah, I had that and it cost 1800 bucks to fix. That's when I dumped it.
At 20K all the brake rotors warped and had to be replaced. The o2 sensors both failed at 21K and 22K respectively. I went thru 3 sets of tires and had it aligned about 4 times. The resale value was about equal to a sack of fertilizer. The only thing about the Jeep, it looks good but that's it. You'd be real unhappy going from the MO to the Jeep. That's why you can buy one that stickers for 28K and get it for 19,900.
