I would complain more for using a generation old powerplant. Jaguar and Maserati looking a lot more appealing now, not sure if Infiniti's bargain price is enough to sway.

Love the look. All the complaining about cooled seats gives me a headache.

Would it have been nice, sure, but it is not going to be a deal breaker for anyone interested in it.
not a necessity, but if i'm spending $50k-$60k on a vehicle, it had better at least have some convenience features that are offered on a frickin' Kia Forte.

You could always pick-up that Forte with ventilated seats and save a few bucks...

I recently had a Q50 base awd loaner. 40k for a car that doesn't even come with heated seats, power rear view mirror or memory seating. Most cars half that price all come standard with those. I don't get how Infiniti can even offer a car without heated seats.

Returned my 2013 G37xS Lease and got myself into a 2015 Q50S AWD...I have no complaints.

I do at times miss the "rawness" of the G37xS, but the refinements of the Q50S outweighs majority of what the G37xS had.

With all the negativity based on the Q50S's DAS, I feel that it has been blown way overboard...in my opinion, I say that it is one of the Q50S's strong points...plus having actual "sport" suspension and brakes are a plus compared to just the "sport appearance" on the G37xS.

I do agree that the base model of the Q50 is not to be desired, but get one fully loaded like the one I have...that's when it is "fun" to drive.

The G37xS will always have a place...but I think it is time for it to grow up.
The Q50 is the answer...especially with the 2016 twin turbo 400hp AWD!

I leased the Q50 and wasn't really impressed. Lagging intouch, AC on button hidden in the apps, buggy steering, virtually no feedback.

But other than that, never had any major issues besides the stinky sunroof draintube that stunk up the car in the Summer.

Oh, it's 2016 and the Pandora app still isn't available. But you can use it from the phone. But again, I can do that with my 2015 Q60 coupe w/o the advance technology crap that cost 2500 extra or whatever.

It may not be logical they do things this way, but neither is saying a Forte has it so the Q should also.

a luxury car brand should have luxury features - when the bottom-of-the-barrel Kia has cooled seats and a less-than $13k Mitsubishi Mirage has Apple Carplay, maybe Infiniti ought to rethink their luxury features. luxury isnt shiny wood panels and leather-covered B.S. ... a luxury brand needs to feature the latest tech. seems like Nissan is doing that lately.
