Infiniti Q70

The Q70 is very quick and handles responsively. Its punchy 330-hp, 3.7-liter V6 and smooth seven-speed automatic return decent fuel economy of 21 mpg overall. A 420-hp V8 and a V6 hybrid are also available. However, the transition between electric and gas mode in the Hybrid is too abrupt. Handling is fairly agile, and the ride is firm yet compliant. The car is quiet but not super-hushed, due to some engine noise at high revs.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
