Last month I posted an article about the seven things I don’t like about my Infiniti sports sedan. It seems like it’s time to set the record straight and come up with some stuff that I actually like about this new used car.

Although it’s easier to build a list of items you hate, I still found five things that made getting rid of my first generation Cadillac SRX a lot easier.

With that said, I guess it’s just human nature to miss the luxury accessories of an older car. Out of the five features I like about the Infiniti luxury sedan only two of them are options I never had before. Without further delay, here are five things I like about the Infiniti sport sedan.

My Two Cadillacs

Visitors to this automotive blog have seen me write about the car problems my 09 SRX has delivered.

Maybe it was the rebellious side of me that wanted to do something different than the rest of the family. Regardless, my dream became a reality in the early 90s when I purchased a high mileage 1989 Cadillac Coupe Deville. This was no run-of-the-mill everybody’s got one type of car.
