Glori..Gloria...Gloriaaaaa, GLORIA: 2003 Infiniti M45 Y34

The Y34 generation M45 was sold in the US market for the 2003 and 2004 model years only, and in very limited numbers (8000 or so if you believe the web).  The M45 was sold as a competitor to the BMW 540i, Audi S6 or Mercedes-Benz E500 and you don't see many around partially because it didn't have a basic entry model...but I think that only ads to the allure.  Plus the styling is downright sweet and doesn't look aged like the previous mentioned competition from 15 years ago. Find this 2003 Infiniti M45 Y34 offered for $4900 in Houston, TX via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

I'm selling 2003 infinity m45 black color with only 97k miles on it. The car is clean and always garaged, very rear and hard to find a clean one. It Has leather seats, sunroof and climate control on it.
The car runs really smooth. It has brand new tires which have little over 400 miles on them, oil has been changed recently and brands new battery with a 5-year warranty on it. Recently done a multipoint inspection from the dealer which is displayed in the images. I do not drive it, just sitting in my garage. Price is a bit negotiable please do text or call for any questions or concerns on show contact info . Please leave a voicemail if called so I can return your call.

Note ** just a scratch on a left rear fender while the car was in the parking lot
Note** clean blue title in hand
Note**never got into an accident
Note**original paint no touchups what so ever

See a better way to drive a Nissan Gloria??


  1. These have been one of the best sleeper buys for the past couple of years. Scarce as hen's teeth, but if you see one for sale in your area...go drive it, it will impress.

    1. I agree. This looks to be a super buy for a cheap daily driver. In my area, that money will really just find you boring Honda Civics and CR-V's with a hundred thousand more miles.

  2. I love the look of these. From all angles it's a really clean design. Manufacturers aren't styling cars like this right now. Everything new has tons of lines, competing angles, huge grilles, etc. Where are the designs that focus on simplicity and fluid lines?

    Infiniti (Nissan) did a good job of creating unique styling back in the '90s and very early '00s that made their cars recognizable. Maybe they weren't for everyone, but the J30 and first Q45 didn't look like the competition. That's no longer the case with the new models. I can't differentiate between an Infiniti and a Nissan or other competing brand today and I don't give them a second glance. Just bland. They ditched the one thing that made them stand out.

  3. What a gorgeous machine and a very reasonable price. I'll drive far for the right vehicle but 2000 km is a bit too far.

  4. That is an Infinity model that I don't think was sold up here in the Canada. Nice clean styling. I like the forward-raked c-pillar, but it must restrict rear seat headroom.
