    INFINITI M45 Consumer Reviews | BANHALLMADN.INFO

    The Good Cabin technology in the Infiniti M45x includes a hard-drive-based navigation system with traffic reporting, a great-sounding stereo with many digital music options, adaptive cruise control, and an innovative lane departure system.

    The Bad The engine doesn't strike a great balance between economy and power, excelling at neither, and the five-speed automatic transmission didn't feel particularly modern. The Bottom Line The Infiniti M45x offers some of the most cutting-edge cabin tech at a rock-bottom price, compared with the competition. The car is a good luxury cruiser with some performance aspirations.

    This is the car for well-heeled value shoppers. The M45x model is Infiniti's top-of-the-line sedan, featuring the model's largest motor along with all-wheel drive. This big sedan cruises easily and coddled us in its very comfortable front seats. Infiniti has been a real leader in cabin technology lately, and our M45x test car came with not only the optional Technology package, but also the Advanced Technology package.

    There are only a couple of places where we felt this car let us down, in its uninspiring automatic transmission and its mediocre fuel economy, which was expected given the size of the engine. Traffic cruise The Infiniti M45x includes a couple of cutting-edge technologies as options: XM NavTraffic and adaptive cruise control.

    We tested both of these with a rush-hour trip into heavy traffic around San Francisco, a city consistently rated in the top five for worst traffic in the country. We've used adaptive cruise control, a radar-based system that slows the car down to the speed of slower-moving traffic ahead, on freeways with sparse traffic. Even there we kept a foot hovering over the brake pedal, at least initially, afraid to put our trust into the system.

    But we were ready to take the next step and drive in heavy traffic, sans feet. The adaptive cruise control is set for 72 mph, according to the display on the tachometer, but slower traffic ahead has the car's actual speed at just below 60 mph. And we also used the opportunity to test the traffic avoidance feature of the navigation system. With the Infiniti, as in a few other cars we've seen, such as the Cadillac CTS, the navigation system uses the information it gets about traffic on the road ahead to come up with alternative routes.

    This level of integration beats the systems that merely show traffic information without warning about traffic jams on the road ahead. We set our initial route for the San Francisco International Airport, a few miles south of the city, and followed the route onto the freeway. Traffic was stopped in the other direction, but we got enough clear space southbound to gun the car up to 70 mph and set the cruise control.

    As we came up on the traffic ahead, our hearts pounding, the car braked and slowed itself to 45 mph, matching the speed of the car in front of us. The distance between our car and the next was initially pretty far, and would tempt too many people to cut in, so we pushed a button on the steering wheel that brought the following distance to the lowest setting. In a few stretches just south of the city, the navigation screen showed an amber line along the freeway, indicating traffic moving at 20 mph to 40 mph, but the navigation system didn't suggest an alternative.

    We figured it would only suggest a different route for traffic going below 20 mph, indicated on the map by a red line. This dense traffic is moving slower than the 20 mph to 40 mph indicated on the navigation screen. As we drove under the cruise control's speed management, we felt that the car we were tracking was going a bit too slow, about 5 mph under the limit, so we looked for a clear spot and jumped a lane to the left.
