Acceleration smooth
Quiet and comfortable on our roads
How is the handling/steering response/cornering stability

I've got a 2009 Skyline crossover with the 3.7l V6 and 7 speed auto... (I think it's the same as the Fuga) Gearbox and engine are brilliant - very smooth and powerful. Obviously chassis is a big different but the skyline handles very well for a larger car - and is quiet and comfy. I would imagine the Fuga might be even better as it's a sedan.

I haven't had it long enough to comment on reliability or maintenance costs and my one is 2wd which, honestly, on loose surfaces is terrible... The VDC is ultra aggressive and if you turn it off, there's so much power and so little feedback on slip (quiet car, compliant suspension) it's tough to drive on the throttle.

Cheers - N

no reviews on the fuga that i could find, but reading the reviews of the Infinity equivalent, sounds like it drives like an Aurion on sticks

LOL whatcar gives it 1/5 (doesn't mean it's bad, just not ... "good". as they aim for Range Rover as gold standard.)
