Hey guys...curious, with some of the recent issues with DAS, would you buy another Q50 with it? Or would you get one without DAS? Just trying to make a hybrid vs. non-hydrid decision and curious on your opinions. :)

Indeed i would and I was one of the guys with the low battery / start up issues. DAS works really well for my needs. If I was carving canyons everyday and doing 11/10ths driving maybe not, but for effortless freeway driving DAS with tech rocks for me

Non-Hybrid owner here who loves the DAS. I specifically bought the car with the package i did because of the DAS and have not regretted it for a moment. This car can be tuned to your liking within a couple clicks and will only get better as everyone learns that this technology will be the wave of the future. In my opinion regardless of your choice for hybrid non-hybrid this car is absolutely the way to go.
On a side note my Intouch hasn't froze up but once and i purchased in Mid October so that issue is overblown as well.

Gas mileage has steadily increased as i have broken in the car and i am averaging 26 mpg mixed use. i have for the record been blowing doors off bmw's c'classes whilst they wonder what just happened and what kind of car was that.

26 mpg. Nice..... quick question and out of topic. What's your mileage? Mine is around 1500 and I barely reach 22 mpg. Every time I fill the gas, the most I could get is 20mpg. I drive mostly using the standard mode and 70% highway. Is it going better after break-in?

Thanks.

I would. I love the hybrid/tech package. I never would have known it was DAS if I wasn't told.
I agree with greenhut and others. The ability to change the cars handling characteristics at the touch of a button is a definite plus.

No issues with ours for 3500+

DAS is a pleasure to own for stop-and-go traffic. It is also a pleasure to have the option to tailor your own steering feel. No problems. No worries. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

DAS makes active lane control a winner. I too echo others. I purchased the car for it's touring capabilities and DAS is part of that story.

But I will admit, I am concern with the recent news reported on this forum. While the few DAS incidences reported earlier seem to be associated with start-up only, the newest report of a dealer driving around in their parking lot and inducing a DAS error is alarming. The problem may be associated to a low number of vehicles (I believe someone reported 40), but it does cast a dim shadow on Infiniti.

Still, my bet is on Infiniti that they will take care of their customers and make things right.

When cruising in the highway, put it on ECO mode.

I think the numb feeling of the Q50 got alots to do with the RFT than DAS.
I suspect the thick sidewall of the RFT which numb out the entire car.
On my Q50S Hybrid with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3 tires, I can felt the tingling sensation of the road on my steering wheel. I do felt the feedback on the road quite good. Since I got my A/S3 tires the very first day I got my car, I just can't compare it to the Dunlop RFT tires. I only test drove the Q50S Hybrid twice briefly before I bough my car 3 months ago. I can't remember how the Dunlop RFT felt since I never think about it before until people here start complain about it.
I don't know. I'm just speculating. Take my word with a grain of salt. Don't blame me if you end up getting the A/S3 and disappointed :)
But, I don't think that will happen. I have yet heard anyone disappointed with it.

I like it so far and haven't had any issues with DAS. I don't think the feedback and feel is all that numb, as some of the reports would lead one to believe.
