Coming from a cts sedan to a g37x sedan. Obviously I'm interested in vehicles that are sporty yet luxurious. After being disappointed with the cts in its unreliability, high repair costs and poor winter driving performance, I did as much research as possible before making my next vehicle purchase. Which led me to three options, the bmw 328i x drive, audi a4 and the infiniti g37x. I'm a speed and drive enthusiast, so of course i was leaning towards the bmw. After doing further research and test drives, i was easily able to make a decision. Went with the g37x for its power, luxurious feeling interior and low maintenance cost. The bmw had the smoothest feeling engine and most responsive steering. The audi had the most comfortable drive. But the one that felt just right is the g37. It's the fastest of the three while still feeling well balanced. It's never been in the shop once yet. Completely satisfied with this vehicle. I think my next car will also be an infiniti.

I had a 2003 G35 which I loved. I got a 2009 6 months ago when I changed jobs and needed a car to commute with. Engine and handling are great. I average 23 MPG in mostly hwy travel w plus gasoline, I usually drive around 85 mph on highway. Better MPG in warmer weather. The acceleration is excellent and braking is great too. I drive 55 miles 1 way and seats are comfortable, Im 6 feet 225 pounds. Quality is great as with all infinitis. The rear seats fit my 2 car seats as I have 2 small kids. The AWD is good so far but I thought the g 35 a little better. All in all a great car w great features and looks great too. trunk is nice but storage inside cabin is a little tight.
So great I bought another

If I could count all the hours I have spent reading car magazines, online car reviews, shopping for cars, etc., I'm pretty sure it would represent a good year of my life. These countless hours led me to the 2009 Infiniti G37, which I bought new in 2009 for $30k (list price of around $35k). I put 155,000 miles on it, with zero problems except for changing the brakes twice, the battery once, and power locks that sometimes didn't want to cooperate. Never got the locks fixed because it wasn't a big deal. I put new tires on twice, and I highly recommend the Michelin Primacy - great in the rain, and last for 60k miles. I spent a lot of time looking at various replacement options, but none had the combination of power, handling, interior space, quality, and reliability. So I traded it in last month on a 2013 G37. Just yesterday I had a $40,0000 BMW as a rental, and I was very happy to get back into my car. The used G37 is without question the best value out there. I feel bad for all the people paying high 20's or low 30's for a generic car with half the power and quadruple the problems when they could have a year-or-two-old G37 for less money.

I purchased my used 2009 G37x sedan in July of 2015. At the time of purchase it had 146,000 miles. I was skeptical of the mileage but after a friend of mine had a good experience with a 2003 G35 that reached 182,000 miles and only sold it because he needed an SUV, I decided to purchase it. After all it was a great deal. The dealer I work at took the car in as a trade in and was asking $11,600 for it. Since I work there I got a deal for $10,000! This the best purchase I have ever made! The car is in great condition with nothing damaged or worn. The VQ37VHR is a very powerful motor. In fact it is the same engine from the Nissan 370z. Along with the AWD this sedan hooks up even in the rain with the traction control off. This is a very quick car not to mention a good looking one. I have had no problems with the car at all. The Bose sound system is great and has a nice balance in sound quality. The Bluetooth works flawlessly every time. I am six feet tall and the seating position is great. Trust me, I am a very picky person and I am not afraid to speak the truth. This car is exceptional. Anyone in the market for a luxury sedan needs to consider this car. It is one of the best values on the market today.

If you need a big trunk, plan on having people in the back seat for longer than 1/2 an hour or don't like a sporty ride don't buy this car. For two people who like to throw a car around on country roads this is "the" car. It's a joy to drive hard, but very comfortable if you take it easy. My only problem is my wife keeps taking it.

For the money, and then some, the G37 was a hot coupe. It is now a little long in the tooth, but when it came out, and maybe even now, I am not sure what you can get for $40-45k that looks and performs as well in the segment.

We owned this car for three years and absolutely loved the exterior design. I think it's one of the most beautiful cars on the road. However, there were some major issues that start with cheap materials. The cheap plastics in the dash and door panels do not befit a car selling for 50 large. The leather seat material was far less opulent than my Hyundai Genesis, when the doors close you cannot reach the seat adjuster without scratching the aluminum trim on the doors. Build quality was poor. Rubber weatherstripping squeezing out from trim, rattles when top up ands zero trunk space with top down. This is a $30K car with the top chopped off and $23K added to the price. Period.

Bought my 09 G37x coupe used with 31K mi, very sporty, engine is ferocious, the power doesn't drop off until you hit non-legal speeds. Doesn't have the razor sharp handling of my 06 G35 Coupe, but it's very close and has a smoother, more compliant ride that soaks up bumps very well. Interior with Bose, navigation, and rear view camera is great! I love this car!

I spent a long time doing research on my next car (4 years) each time I took a car that meet my requirements out on a test drive I was disappointed. I wanted something sporty that wasn't just a flat out race car. BMW got really close. But considering that I got my Infiniti for $45k, when a similarly equipped BMW would have cost $65K, I'm rather happy with how everything turned out.
Love this car more than anything I have ever driven
Bought mine new in October 09 (with all packages) and absolutely love driving it. I bought the X thinking I'd drive it in the winter and I have the last couple with no issues whatsoever. I love it so much I'm buying a crossover SUV so I can keep it in the garage this winter. Braking is great, the ride is extremely comfortable and it looks amazing. I get comments on it everywhere I go. I would buy this car again and then some.
I must have looked at 20-30 different cars makes and models (Lexus, BMW, Acura) and after 4 months of looking and test drving (and reading all the user review), this was by far the best choice ever made. I wanted the best 4-dr sports car and didn't want to pay the BWM price tag for the same performance and repairs are insane for you BMW owners. It is tight, extremely smooth, it's my little red ferrari. So glad I got the "S" model. The 18" wheels and paddle shifters are awesome.
A special car I never thought I would own.
A friend who owns a used car dealership found my 09 G37x S with the 7 speed auto and paddle shifters at a regional auction. Barely 30,000 miles and a one-owner history! Black on black, 4dr. Nav system, Bose stereo, 18" wheels, All the goodies!. I never thought I would be able to afford this. The price was right and I did the mechanical work, four Michelin MXM4 tires and some detail touch ups. The car is perfect. I am out the door and on the road for $28K. Unbelievable! At my age this is the perfect car. A great combination of performance and luxury. It also is incredibly good looking.

I purchased the G37 Convertible new in November, 2009, and now have ~14k miles on it. Unlike most hard top convertibles, it looks great top up and top down. The car is an absolute blast to drive when the weather is sunny and one can take the top down. With the top up, it is a mediocre performer due to the weight of the retractable top and structural reinforcements. Creature comforts are great - the ventilated seats, iPod Integration, Bluetooth and Bose Audio System - make the car very liveable on a daily basis. Due to the styling, there is limited storage space in the trunk and car. I highly recommend the air deflector for the car - it makes a big difference at highway speeds (70mph+)
It had to grow on me
I spend a lot of time in the car and after driving a Matrix it was quite an adjustment. It's not as nimble as the Matrix but excels on the highway which was what I needed. Road noise could be less over poor roads but good roads its very quiet. I'll try softer tires next and that may help. The car is really much more of a sports car than a sedan. Cabin is tight but once adjusted it seems normal. I like the simplicity of the interior. Everything else I looked at was very busy inside with buttons everywhere. I don't need a decoder manual to operate the climate controls. The ride is smooth and at 5 pm when I have four more hours of driving to go before I get home, its worth the money.

I am at 5800 miles on my G and can't wait to get rid of it. Worst transmission I've ever driven. The car lurches forward on downshifts, sometimes it hesitates rendering manual and DS positions useless. Even passengers notice the sloppy shift pattern in automatic. When I took it back to the dealer to repair the tranny he told me "it's the way it's supposed to shift. You're not driving a Lexus". Hmm. Do yourself a favor and get a German car or hey, how about a Lexus?
2009 Infiniti G37x Coupe
Great performance, firm ride, easy to use controls, it feels secure and comfortable. Well designed interior and exterior. It feels like you're driving a piece of art. Averaging 20 mpg, have seen 25 on the highway.

This is my second G... first was a 2006 G35 "S" with the manual. Also got the manual on my 2009 G37. The manual transmission really makes this car. You have to special order, but it's worth the wait. Had a BMW 328 prior to going to Infiniti the first time and obviously decided to stick with Infiniti. Maintenance and dealer experiences have been great for the 5 years I've owned my cars. My only complaints are some minor chipping on the grill (2006 didn't do this),crappy cup holders in the manual version and Bluetooth that won't sync with Droid phones.

I leased a new 2010 G37 convertible when my Mercedes Benz CLK350 lease ran out. With the Infiniti, it's like night and day. The G37 is so much faster, handles better and even looks classier, inside and out, than the Mercedes. So far, both Infiniti and the dealer have been great. Responsive and proactive with notices and keeping in touch.
Love my 09 37x Coupe!
I've owned my 2009 37x coupe for nine months now so I have a really good feel for what this car can do. The performance is outstanding and can compete with plenty of other sport coupes on the road in this price bracket. The transmission complaints are valid in some instances (downshifting in lower gears does jerk the car but I've only ever noticed it going down very steep grades.) The design speaks for itself and I get a lot of compliments from friends, family and random strangers about the look of it. Techies will not be disappointed with the electronics in the G as there is plenty to go around. The bluetooth functionality is excellent. I think it's roomy and I'm 6'2".
Just what everyone said it was
I picked up a barely used 2009 G37X a couple of weeks ago after EXTENSIVE research and testing of (BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Lexus is250, Ford Fusion Sport, Mazda 6 V6) and luckily found this barely used G37X. Simply put - all the reviews are spot on - second only to the 3-series, but not a distant 2nd. Great car - I love the drive and interior. At night - headlights are amazingly bright.
Rated the best and is
Set out to buy either a new MB C330, BMW 328, or Lexus IS250. Did all the research, but the Infiniti was consistently rated highest and was the lowest price so I figured a test drive was warranted. I was sold on the first press of the accelerator. A terrific car - clearly out performed the others. Excellent in snow and slush - couldn't make it spin out in an empty parking lot. When priced out with similar options, just a tremendous value for the money compared to the other three. (Acura was too ugly). Got 21-22 mph until my speeding ticket, now gets 24-25 commuting.
Best High Performance vehicle Ever!
This is my first infiniti and I did lots of research, comparing it to Acura TL, Lexus IS, Lexus ES, BMW 3- series, and Mercedes C class. I went and test drove them all and the best overall is my new infiniti G37XS. It gives me power whenever I need it, excellent sporty ride, very luxurious feel inside, and handles very well on ice and snow. On top of all this, it is Japanese made, built to last.

Replaced my G35 with a 37, but I wish I had my 35 back. Pretty much the same car inside the cab, but obviously faster and with a terrible 7 speed transmission. The jerks at low speeds during shifts and jumps into higher gears is frustrating. Takes the fun out of driving an otherwise awesome car.
All Around Awesome
I have had the car for about five months. I love it! For the money, you can't beat it. It is fun to drive (the performance is amazing). The creature comforts are great. It also looks stunning. If you look at other hard top convertibles, no other make comes close to making the hard top look like the coupe the way Infiniti does. All around awesome car.
Great car, Poor dealership
Purchased the preowned G37 from Infiniti of Gwinnett (Atlanta). The car is amazing, the dealership stinks. Very deceitful!
Nice cruiser but terrible transmission
I traded an '06 Passat for my G three months ago. So far really like the car except for a couple of complaints. The transmission jolts the car when shifting gears most of the time and the quick shift is useless. Hesitates when changing gears and then it's like it can't decide which gear to settle into when downshifting. Very annoying and disappointing. Also, cruise control revs the engine suddenly when using the accelerate feature. Personally don't care about the poor gas mileage. It's not that bad and I wasn't expecting too much with this much power.

Great sports sedan, powerful & responsive. AWD performed amicably during the latest snowstorm. All electronic features are very intuitive, and well designed. However, there are some drawbacks: 1) poor mileage when driven mostly in the city. I get 14 mpg on average. 2) small trunk with narrow opening 3) rear seats don't fold down. In overall, I'm happy with the car, but really miss my FX35.
Almost Perfect for the Price
Downsized from a GS350 and I must say, this is a 9/10ths Lexus. Great interior (really comfy seats)...has all the bells and whistles you would expect from a $40k car. I am really surprised by the great navi and music hard drive. Car corners very flat, especially for a sedan and the power is instantaneous. I have noticed an on again/off again rattle in the passenger door after only 3K miles. I have owned every luxury German and Japanese make there is and I must say Infiniti is becoming my favorite due to its blend of near BMW agility, near Lexus comfort, and near Mercedes luxury for typically a lot less than those makes. Good mileage so far too, 22mpg combined.

Right after I purchased a 2009 G37 Convertible, I noticed that there was persistent creaking coming from both sides of the rear portion of the hardtop. That night, I put the top down and up, and noticed that the trunk was opened afterward, so I closed it manually. The next morning, I approached my car in the garage to find the trunk opened again. 2 days later, the engine refused to go past 10 mph and the Engine Light was on so I was forced to bring it into the dealership. It's since been over 30 days and Infiniti has tried to solve the problem twice to no avail. I still don't have my car. Most of all, I'm wondering where the other bad reviews are? Can anyone say Infiniti Hush Money?
Excellent sport car
This is a high quality, luxury sports car. The exhaust sound is great. There is plenty of power. The transmission is sometimes getting confused in the lower rpm. This car needs high pushing than it comes to life. Very sexy interior, and exterior. Lots of electronic gadgets. I have premium package with nav and bose sound system. Everything works perfect. Very good sound system and navigation is one of the best in its class.

The car while stiffly sprung rides nice, tight, and sticks to the road. Accelerates hard w/ trans in SM mode. Full auto is slow to downshift and 2 door coupe x model HAS NO PADDLE SHIFTERS - why? Voice system is poor - 40 commands - my wife's Honda understands 600!! Sound system above average. Controls feel expensive, great interior, a drivers car. Great sounding when you hit the gas and I like the downshift matching in Sport mode. I have the adaptive cruise control which means you have to adapt to it. It slows down - sometimes hard in traffic so it takes getting used to if you are a cruise control person. Trunk/back seats are for looks not for use beyond soft luggage and 2 walker golf bags.

I've had my G37x coupe for about 8 months and I can't believe I'm writing a negative review. The car was awesome for the first 10k miles. However, lately it's just been one issue after another. I went out to my car this morning and saw rust on the trunk right below the rear spoiler. Yes rust after < 1 year on a car that costs $45k. I couldn't believe it. We'll see how the dealer handles it. In additions to the rust, the car has developed multiple squeaks from the center console and right dash area. The ipod connector has begun to randomly show my iphone as disconnected even though it's plugged in. The driver's seat is also starting to bubble (common issue)
A super smooth ride
I bought this car after having a Honda Accord for a year. What a difference. Aside from the styling, which is beautiful, this car IS power. And at 75 mph, the ride is as smooth as it is at 25. I love the car! Cup holders could be bigger - larger cups don't fit - especially alongside a breakfast sandwich. A minor concession.

If you commute more than 40-miles a day you will love this car. The all wheel drive is great in the winter and because 60% of the power is provided to the real wheels the car still handles very well like a performance car. The 7 speed transmission with the ability kick into sport mode is exhilarating. The 330-hp really performs with this well synchronized power train. The only down side is that I got a speeding ticket my first month because the car runs so smooth and has exceptional power that you need to watch the acceleration or get ready to shell out some green stamps to the police. The sound system and the instrumentation feel natural. Small middle armrest compartment is a drag.
Bye bye BMW
I've owned BMW 5 series for 17 years. This year I decided to downsize so I looked at a 335. Great car. Then I drove a G37. To be honest I would have preferred to buy the BMW, but it would have cost about $10,000 more than a comparably equipped G37. BMW nickle and dimes you to death on options, and there's no way it's $10,000 better than a G37. I perfectly satisfied with the G37, and $10,000 wealthier.
Super power comes with AWD. Interior design is excellent. Electronic gadgets are nice to have. This car has a strong engine with all the luxury comfort. It is an excellent coupe that combines both. It is not harsh on the road as BMW. The torque is not there as the 3.35i but still has plenty of power to make you smile.

The car is definitely not worth the money, not much to celebrate for the price payed

Replaced my '04 G35 coupe w/Sport suspension with '09 same pkgs. Just wanted updated electronics. What I loved best about the '04: tight steering, throaty feel and great brakes. Infiniti ruined all three. The steering is loose, the 7 spd transmission spends all its time at high rpm's shifting all over the place - like an old 4 cylinder piece of junk and the brakes grind. After 2 weeks and 900 miles, I guess I only have a few more years to hate it. Maybe I can still buy back my '04.
Love This Car
What a fun car. Sexy lines, smooth and powerful. Got Pacific Sky with Stone. Base, prem, navi, chrome sport package wheels, rear deflector. Researched for a year, waiting on latest models. For us the Infiniti beat out the BMW's, Lexus was no comparison, 370Z, and MB. Also, really wanted a hard top for all weather and noise reduction. Have had trouble with the seat belts getting caught by the door but unbuckled them from the leather strap on the seat to let them retrac all the way. Pain reaching back for it but better. Planning a 2k mile trip first of Spring, can't wait to pop the top and go.
The wife loves it
Replaced the spouses Audi TT with a G37 because so many friends recommended Infiniti. If it's as reliable as I hope I will be ecstatic. Wife is now thrilled with the car. I love the combination of sport performance with a touch of luxury.

Plenty enough power which probably accounts for the less than average advertised fuel economy. I'm averaging just about 20mph city&highway without really pushing it. If you're planning on driving it (mine is the x version),in the snow I wouldn't recommend doing it with the factory Dunlop so-called all season tires. They are useless in the snow, and defeat the purpose of the new all wheel drive system. I replaced mine with the new Continental Extreme DWS's, and WOW...what a difference. Unless my car is an exception, be aware that there seems to be a noticeable lag when shifting from the auto to manual mode. Otherwise, for the most part, relatively satisfied so far after 3,000 miles.
Bought the car just over six months ago and continue to be extremely happy i didn't go with the BMW 335 conv. or the Lexus 3C. The car drives really well, wind feels great with the optional wind deflector, and the sound system is awesome. The Sat Nav is almost perfect and the cooled seats put my friends at awe. The only problem is the body rigidity (average), and the damn seat belts. Its enough of a pet peeve that the retractors don't fully retract the belts when I take them off. Next time Infiniti, make sure the seat belts don't get caught by the door when I get out.

Got this G37 as a less expensive but highly touted alternative to BMW. Driven it 300 miles. Very strong engine & handling and road feel the equal of any BMW 3 or 5. Nav system controls are way too busy & confusing. The show stopper for me is the drivers seat. Good adjustable lumbar support, but very hard bottom to the point of being painful after 30 mins. Driver seat adjustments are also difficult to access & didn't help my 6'2" frame even though the leg room is very adequate. Good news is that Inifiniti is customer focused & letting me swap the G for the larger M with better seating without penalty. Thanks Infiniti.
Ordered and waited 3 months for this car to come in (waited to get the optional spoiler). Almost backed out to order the 2010 model. Winter here now so did not get much driving in before I put car away in storage. However this is a great car: looks great and fun to drive. Can't wait for spring and top down driving. Looked at Lexus IS350c, but could not get excited. Somewhat concerned about reports of the seatbelt not retracking and getting slammed in door and breaking door/seat trim. Need to drive more miles to get fuller experience. Would give it all 10's (other than gas mileage), but there is always room to improve! Hope this helps.
Great Sports Sedan

A great blend of sporty and luxury, with an emphasis on sporty. It is such a pleasure to drive, I'm always anxious to drive it. The ride is firm but it handles and accelerates with the best of them. It's a monster car in civilized clothing, very understated, which I like. I used to want a 3 series but now, not as much. The reliability and value makes it favorable. The brakes are a little touchy but I got used to it. The exterior style is nice, clean. If Infiniti maintains its performance, quality and reliability while keeping prices reasonable (MSRP is high) with this car, then they probably have long time customer.
Smooth, powerful ride. Definitely a lot of car for a great price. With other comparisons such as the Audi S4 with a very similar engine, it's a great choice and handles great in the snow with AWD.
I'm a hardcore sports car driver/fan. I take the G37 to the back canyons every weekend, and this car never disappoints. This car comes to life to its famed character beyond 50MPH, where its 330 horsepower shines. Not blazingly fast off the line, due to relatively low torque figures and rather substantial weight; off-the-line is fast but not heroic (i.e. will be beaten by the 335 off-the-line but can catch up as speed picks up. Stock/non-sports-package brake setup's rotor is prone to warping, but braking performance is excellent. Overall GREAT car. Not a single day I regret my purchase.
Glad I Picked This One
Just bought two days ago. Was insistent on purchasing the BMW 335i con. until I drove this car. It had me at hello. I love everything about it. Of course, it has only been two days. If first impressions count, this car is now my baby, and my 5 year old has been upgraded from my baby to my little boy.
G37X Will Not Disappoint
Just took delivery on an 09 blue slate off the lot and drove it home last week. What a machine. I traded in an 04 Honda Accord V6 for this and could not be happier. Still waiting to see how the mileage shakes out, but I really do not anticipate a car like this getting 25 MPG, more like 20-22. I was worried about the back seat being too small for my family. I have two young boys, only one in a booster seat and there is room for both of them and an adult if need be. This would not be practical for the main family car, but it is a great second car and one that will turn heads.
Great but needs some work
Love the car, having some small issues, wondering if I'm the only one. Had two experiences when I got to the car and it was dead....had great difficulty in jumping it, going back to dealer again this week...I think it's a key/chip recognition matter. But the car's a hoot to drive.
I love this car. It has power, speed, good gas mileage and fun to drive. I think it is better value than Audi, BMW, Acura when you compare specs and price. My suggested improvement items may be already available depending on the option package. I have premium package and feel those should been added as standard item.
Having some fun!
Have been driving my G37S for 2 months - still putting a smile on my face! Acceleration with the manual transmission is a hoot, and sport suspension / handling is fabulous. Looked at the BMW 335, and besides the fact that there wasn't a single non- black manual transmission to be found ANYWHERE, and the fact that the same features would be $10k more, and the fact that it doesn't have that awesome Bose sound system, the G37 Sport 6 speed was still my favorite. Even fit the kids in the back, so it's practical, too (ok, I'm a roadster convert, so it's all relative). I LOVE this car!
G37 x sedan premium and nav package
This car is amazing. I test drove the mercedes benz c300, bmw 3 series, lexus is250 and of course infiniti g37. The g37 was by far my favorite. It's fast and luxurious. With the highest horsepower in its class this car was an easy choice considering all the standard features.
G37 Coupe with Premium, Sport, Nav, Tech
I test drove 11 different vehicles from 9 different manufactures, finally selecting the G37 for its overall combination of price, performance, looks, and overall sexiness. Reaction to the car is a mixed bag from men. However every woman who has come into contact with mine has loved it, some enough to walk up to me in the store and rave about it. When you decide to get on it hard, the rear end breaks free a little sooner then you would expect, but in a very controllable and forgiving manner. This makes it very easy to drive fast, pushing it until the back end starts to drift out and hold the line. From someone who normally despises automatics, the seven- speed in the G37 is phenomenal.
Excellent workmanship. Poor engineering.

Excellent workmanship. Poor engineering. Loud engine and road noises. Bad reflection of dash to windshield from sun and dash lights. Must take vehicle to dealer to check transmission fluid. Vehicle does not track well on straightaway road and requires constant steering. At 70 mph, tach rpm is 2300 whereas, it should be less than 2000 for better mileage. Previous owned Acura TL, type S, a superior vehicle to this one.
My 1st G
This car overall is a great car for its class and price. It's fun to drive. great acceleration, Braking is very good, can be touchy at first but one gets used to it. I had the car for 9 months and put on 30,000 miles my gas mileage averages at 23 mph combo city/highway and I have gotten 26 mph straight highway. I have gotten as low as 10 mph, but then again this is a 330 hp car with AWD and that's what happens when you go full throttle of the line. Gas mileage for this car considering the weight, power, and the AWD, is very good and as expected. If buying this car for fuel economy then you are looking at the wrong car. If you're looking for some driving fun, then this is the car.

Just took delivery today of an '09 white G37S to replace my 07 G35s. These are the first automatics I've ever owned, and I was so impressed I skipped the 6MT option. I had the Tech/Nav/Sport options on the 07, and insisted on them for the new car, which made it very difficult to locate, but the adaptive lighting and dynamic cruise are so helpful I could not imagine having a car without them. I test-drove Audi, BMW, Acuras and even used Boxsters to try finding anything better than the old G, but was unable to fall in love with anything else. The white is much better looking than the old Lakeshore slate G35S, plus the improved performance - what is not to like?
They continue to impress and amaze me
I've driven Infiniti's since 1993. 16 years of nothing but good things to say. The G37X is as good as it gets. Splurge for the Navigation - the other goodies that come with it make it a bargain. If the economy was better, these would be selling like hotcakes - there would be a waiting list. Check out the reviews, Car and Driver, Consumer Reports, etc. It is a no brainer and nothing touches it bang for the buck - the perfect car if you want performance and technology with a side of practicality.
No better car for the money
I was looking for a daily driver that would be "fun to drive" and comfortable on my daily 60 mile commute. I found it. Under $50 there is no better car... the TCS and AWD make for a great combo. The ride is stiff but comfortable. The interior is warm and inviting but has a "fighter jet cockpit". I hate Bose (Clarion) technology, however this OEM system is not bad.
G37 sedan with premium package
Overall a great car. This is my second Infiniti, first being the g35. This is a big step forward. The car is beautiful both in and out. Very comfortable and fun to drive. I looked at this as well as the BMW 335i and walked away with this car mostly based on price. Being nit picky, I will say that the car needs just a little more refinement in the brakes and engine department. The brakes are very touchy. not too smooth. The engine is great but you feel the shifts too much. There is also a good 2 to 2.5 second delay between pedal mash and power to the wheels at highway speed.

My first time I have Inifiniti G37 Coupe, it was fun to drive... a good horse power, but it's for sure not a gas friendly car, I have seen avg 14Mpg to max 20 Mpg, and the sport model type have a noisy tires until you get used to it. Small seats, it's made for big people. It has a good features. I'm enjoying it but I won't buy it again if I was asked to buy it.
Not For City Slickers
Great car overall, but the clutch pedal is a bit too heavy for regular city stop and go driving. I live in Philly and all Infiniti dealers are located in the suburbs. The suburban test drive and the back roads that showed off the handling really didn't reveal how tiring the clutch pedal would become in the city environment where I reside. I have a 2006 Honda Element with manual trans that is a pleasure to drive in the city with its light clutch and precise shift action. It's very, very similar to the BMW 3 Series that I recently test drove. If I could have driven the Infiniti in the city for a day or two I probably would not have purchased it despite its other wonderful virtues.
What a great car!
Just got my G37 w/Premium, Nav packages and love it! Fun to drive, looks great, fit and finish are outstanding. Couldn't ask for a better value. I am looking forward to many years of driving fun with this great car.

Great car. Excellent acceleration, braking and handling. Sound system is awesome and looks are incredible.
Compare to others & you'll want this G!
Just had a 07 G35 and "upgraded" to the 09 G37 & couldn't be happier. The 09 has a bit more acceleration, better hwy MPG and the deals they're offering it's the best bang for the buck in performance sedans right now. The 7 spd Auto in the 09 (compared to the 5 spd in the 07-08) really helps w/ fuel economy. I've already noticed a 2mpg increase on the hwy and the motor isn't really broken in yet. The 7 spd tends to hunt a bit more for gears in speeds under 30 mph but I know there's a Tech service bulletin to have a trans reflash to smooth the shifts, so that'll be taken care of.

Turned in my FX45 on this new G37xS. It is stunning. The driving experience is pretty incredible. The comfort is quite good, the features are very complete, the size and packaging are good, and the electronics are excellent. As you would expect, the performance envelope is outstanding. Excellent power throughout the rev range. Brakes are strong and easy to modulate. Handling is responsive and sporting without being at all punishing. After 2 months and about 4000 miles I love this car. My G is fully optioned and very comfortable. Not a single item on the punchlist for the dealer. Everything works as it should and fits properly. My MPG to date is about 19, but my foot is heavy.
Great driving experience
I am the proud owner of this 2009 G37 and so far I love it. I try to find excuses to go somewhere just so I can drive it. This car is FAST. I have to be careful so I don't get a ticket. I usually keep it in "D" mode to tame the horses and for better fuel economy. I average about 22mpg in city driving. The navigation and premium packages were well worth the upgrade. This car is just a dream to drive.
What a tremendous vehicle!
Moonlight White G37S with Premium/Navigation/Sport/Technology/4- wheel Active Steering packages Just brought this home. I had been shopping around since February. Looked at the BMW 335, Audi A4, Mercedes C300, Lexus IS350/ES350, Volkswagen Passat and CC. After all was said and done, the bang for the buck was clearly with the 09 G37. The most impressive part of the car's performance isn't necessarily the 0-60 time (although it is nice). I find that its ability to get up and go when already at highway speeds to get around slower traffic and put safe distance between you and others has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
This is my first Infiniti (loyal Lexus owner) and I am happy with my choice! I feel this is the best hard-top convertible for the money. It looks great with the top up or down. Considered and drove a BMW 335 Convertible and a Lexus IS 350 Convertible. Did not like the looks of the Lexus and the BMW was $8000 more WITHOUT a Nav system and other features on the Infiniti. PLUS the dealership was FRIENDLY and took GREAT care of me. Overall, I would highly recommend this to someone looking for the perfect blend of luxury, sportiness and value.
Does it come better?
Looking and researching the G's from the previous body style I took a dive for this one, and believe me, it's 180 degree turn from their previous model. Like said before, gotta get the packages. I have the 4wheel active steer pkg (takes corners at whatever speed without body role... good investment), premium, navigation, tech pkg (intelligent cruise control). The shifting and acceleration is as sporty and amazing as driving a little 2dr lotus!! Braking is as smooth and effective as a $100K automobile... and the best part, it's a quiet, sleek, quality car... without shouting for attention like the MB, BMW etc!
G 37x Coupe A Perfect 10
I bought a BMW 328XI coupe a few months ago in error and now made the change to the G37X. Though the mistake cost me, it was well worth it. The difference between the two cars and the value you get with the G37 made the change something that I had to do. Though the 328XI is a fine car, it does not have the road manners of the G37X. I have always wanted the G37X and I waited for the AWD to become available in the coupe. This car is a monster on the road, the ride is perfectly smooth, the quality of the ride is perfect and the performance is impeccable. Infiniti is number one with me.

I have had my convertible for over a month. I have been waiting for it since Feb. I LOVE everything about it, except the cuphold situation-- or more accurately, the lack of good cupholders. I ordered the manual version and test drove the automatic. Different cupholders! Also, my average gas mileage is about 17.1 mpg. I would love to get the advertised 19-21mpg. I'm still learning all the features to the car, but I am totally enjoying the navigation system and phone/iPod connection. Also, the speakers in the headrest is the best. I will say that the Lexus has more trunk space with the top down than the Infiniti. I only have room for an umbrella and a baseball hat in the trunk.

The handling and performance is superb, acceleration is great under any circumstance. The technology loaded in this vehicle really makes the difference with comparable 335 or A5, a fully loaded G37 coupe would cost around 8-10K less than any other European brand.
Best Bang for Buck Sport Sedan
The more I drive my G37S Sedan, the more I love it. In my opinion, it blows the Mercedes C-Class away, destroys the Audi A4, and is $10,000 less than the BMW 335i comparably equipped. That said, it is a great combination of utility and performance. The G37 is fast in a straight line and also a great handling car. Impressively, it feels much lighter than it actually is. While the G37 is very capable of good gas mileage, it is incredibly difficult to fight the temptation to hammer the throttle. Hence, gas mileage can be an issue if you have a lead foot. In short, bravo Infiniti. You have created a great mix of performance and luxury for a reasonable cost.
Best car in its class
I was in the market for a sport sedan for 6 month. I compared the A4, IS350,335XI. For my preference none of these cars compared to the G overall package. Is rough edgy but with class, great all wheel drive system. I love it.
Ultimate Driving Experience
Doesn't get any better than this. Coming from a Ford Explorer to an Infiniti is like eating spam for 4 years and then moving up to caviar! I checked out the Mercedes C Class, the Acura TL, Lexus IS and BMW 3 Series and none of them comparable to what my Infiniti is. The handling is great, it's F-A-S-T for a sedan and has everything I need. Other people complained that the doors not locking automatically but mine do so maybe it's just the Journey model that does so. If I could change anything, I would have gotten the model with all the bells and whistles (Nav, Bluetooth, etc.) but again, I was coming from an Explorer lol.

Having driven a 2006 G35 coupe for the past 3+ years, I thought the new G37 coupe was an obvious choice when looking for a new car. I would get the driving experience I LOVED from the old car and more gadgets and features than an electronics show in Vegas. I was sorely mistaken. The transmission in this car searches for gears like Indiana looking for the Holy Grail. The steering is so loose that any imperfection in the pavement sends it all over the road. Driving it is a maddening endeavor; I feel like I am always trying not to break it or push it over the edge!!! I have called the dealer and while they assure me this is normal operation, I have an appointment for Friday.
On Cloud 9! LOVE THIS CAR!!!
Like other posters, I researched/test drove so many vehicles before finally taking the plunge on the G. None could compare to Infiniti's styling, comfort, power, technology, and VALUE! I had to have the premium package and navi. The navigation system in this car is awesome---one of the best on the market. The toys on the inside--- bluetooth, ipod connector, back up camera really appeal to my techie side. The jump from 0-60 will make your heart flutter. The interior leather is supple and the car is simply striking on the road. Be prepared---people will stare! I just cannot say enough about this car. Infiniti---keep doing what you're doing. Customer for life!
It's Mostly Good
I've had this car for 3 months, 2000 miles. Overall, great car. Comfortable, good performance, great fit and finish. Getting 20-21 mpg mostly city driving. Nitpicks... While the seating is comfortable, the head room is tight. Unless I sit near the bottom of seat height adjustment, my heads hits the roof, I'm 5' 11". Bose radio is good, not great. Transmission lower gears are not well matched, winds up to quickly going, jerky when slowing down.
This thing is serious fun.
I was shopping around for a new car and did extensive research on sedans in the same class. Lexus IS, Audi A4, Acura TL, Benz C Class, etc. After test driving the Infiniti, I was sold. This car has got the most powerful standard engine in its class and it makes it such an amazing machine to drive. 0-60 in a little over 5 seconds. Gotta love it! At the same time, the brakes make stopping feel effortless so that you're confident driving such a strong car. Lastly, the interior is beautiful and classy. I have no regrets in buying this car and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an excellent four-door sports car.
G37 and the iPod
The iPod does indeed recharge while driving the car. Or else I've been able to drive over 8,000 miles on a single charge since last February. And, yes, this is one fabulous car. My mpg has been over 23 for summer driving, part highway and part local.
Overall, an excellent choice! This car is FAST! And it has all the features you would ever want. I got the Premium and Navi which are a must have for a lux car. Way better than BMW 3 series and more stylish than the TL. Old G series was boring, but I love the new design, 7 speed AT, and 328 HP! Interior is great and comfortable (BMW interior is boring -- leatherette for a lux car? Are you kidding me?) TL is bigger but not as fast and not as pretty on the outside. I thought about getting a Maxima, but heck, it's almost the same price, so why not get the G37? With the confidence of Inifinti reliability, I am one happy camper.
I love this car!
I just got this car a few weeks ago but I just can't get enough of it. It's really fun to drive. I have nothing against the BMW's but I personally felt that this Infiniti responded better than the 3 series. I honestly have no complaints at all. I heard someone say that the display was hard to see but I don't get that at all. I think the cabin is well designed.
Repeat Infiniti Owner
Love this car! I owned the first G35 coupe back in 2003 and traded it in 2006 for Lexus IS and missed the G every day until I bought my 2009 G37 Journey coupe the other day. Feels great to drive a real high performance car again.
Love this car
I test drove every AWD in this class. btw could not believe the Lexus 250 - the interior looked and felt cheap, and drive wasn't great. I just kept coming back to this G. Love it. Before this I was in an Oldsmobile Alero. gasp. Finally I have a car that can handle my driving. I'm in heaven.
Coming from a '06 G35 6MT sedan (w/ sport and premium) - I thought I would miss the VLSD and 6MT. The 7AT and VQ37VHR more than make up for it. This engine is more powerful and more refined. The power band is excellent, and power is always ready. I love being in 7th gear, and doing 2600 rpm at 80mph - averaging over 29MPG. The cabin is quieter over the G35, and feels roomier. My sun shade from the G35 fits on the G37, BONUS!! I was looking at the ISF, C63, G8 GXP, and 330. I wanted a sporty sedan that wasn't too big. The e55 would have been too big. The G37 gave me everything I wanted, at a wonderful price.
Incrediable Driving Machine
I did an extensive research for a while. I was comparing a couple of cars: BMW 328i, Infiniti G37, and MB C350. Eventually I went for G37. After driving 1500 miles, I'm glad I made a right decision. This is an incredible driving machine with tons of power under hood. The curb turning is really great and better than 328i. I feel so thrilled whenever I do 0-60mile acceleration. This is the best entry luxury sports sedan by far.
Best in class
I cross-shopped the 328i (xDrive), TL-SHAWD, A4 2.0, and IS-250AWD. None of them came close to offering the same blend of performance, handling, features, technology, and usability as the G37xS. The engine is extremely powerful (pulling away with four passengers up a hill is still easy to elicit a "Whoa" from everyone on board), the chassis handling BMW-like (read: near-perfect), the technologies (voice control, music box, swiveling headlights, laser cruise, traffic gps, etc. etc.) both cool and easy-to-use, the seats bolster you in like some high-luxe sport cars, and the overall experience is extremely satisfying and fun.
What a Great Car
I have the 09 G37S coupe with the premium and sport package. What a car. I really cannot find anything to criticize. I also have a 08 911TT Cab so I know cars and power etc. The fit and finish is excellent and the interior is great. Some people criticize the 7speed auto, but honestly, I don't know why and the same goes for the interior. One feature that is cool is the music box with the 9+ GB harddisk. At first I thought it was worthless, but once you have loaded in all your CDs, no more carrying around CDs. If you have to have more status, want to pay thousands more and get less, then by all means buy a Lexus or BMW. The dealer treats you like a king, no begging for loaner.
This is my second Infiniti. My last vehicle was a Cayenne, however, I wanted to shed myself of an SUV while maintaining the versatility of AWD. I decided on the g37x coupe based on the reliability and performance factor of my previously owned Infiniti FX 35. My FX never, and I mean never, went back to the dealership. I had the oil changed every 3,000 miles at my local service station. I test drove the BMW 335x and could not justify spending the difference in price for a comparable car. The g37 coupe is comfortable, handles well and has insane acceleration. The standard feature list far surpasses any of its competitors from Germany. I would definitely buy it again.
Not one to over-look!
Great all-around luxury/sports sedan. Plenty of power is there throughout the powerband. Transmission responds when you want it to, yet is smooth in nearly all driving conditions. All- wheel drive is great in rainy conditions and light snow. Getting around 23-27 mpg in city and highway mix with normal driving habits (depending on the mix of city verses highway miles and how hard I drive the car). Recently got 31.2 mpg with cruise set at 58 mpg on eastern shore of MD! Handling is great without S trim - no need to upgrade unless you really want a bit more performance for the extra $. Nice standard technology and luxury with more toys and comfort features available if you want them.
There is no comparison to a BMW 3 series, this is the car to beat. Plain and simple if you love driving (aggressively I might add) and love to see cars in your rear view mirror then get this car. The G37 X is all u need. Fun to drive. Power is incredible. The interior is classy not overbearing. The ride is smooth. This car will put a huge smile on your face when you drive and look at it. Enough said. Keep blowing away BMW. True drivers will appreciate and love this car.
Worth the wait!
Spent 17 months meticulously reading reviews and test driving every car in the entry level luxury class, plus many other categories, before selecting the G37X coupe. Although I bought the car this May, I test drove it during a Michigan snow storm, and have a strong impression of its road grip-handling during both good and very poor road conditions. This car is superb by all measures. It's exterior lines are eye catching and interior refinements are topnotch. Fuel economy is better than I had anticipated, as I'm averaging 21 MPG of mostly city driving. Not too shabby! This car is awesome.
I was looking to buy the new Lexus IS250c and then test drove the Infiniti G37 convertible and was sold on it! I bought the car the next day! I love my first Infiniti and first convertible. It has enough power to get me in trouble and is sexy on the inside and out! The interior is beautiful and I love the heated/cooled seats!
How cool is this?
A perfect mix of fun, luxury and practicality. BMW 5 features, size and performance for a tad over 40K. Most car for the money on the road.
I just turned in a 2006 FX. I loved that car because it had versatility and handled like a sports sedan. When I went back to the Infiniti dealership to check out an '09 FX, the new version just didn't whet my appetite. Too exotic maybe. I test drove a G37X and wow! Now that's a sports sedan! I gave up some storage and SUV driving height, but came away with a rocket ship on wheels, that is as tight as a drum. I had test driven a BMW 328X also and this car is as tight as that but with ample more power. The 328 is not even in the same class power wise.
A car everyone will love!
Just got my new G37 convertible and I LOVE it. Thought about the new Lexus convertible, but didn't like the way it looked. The Infiniti is completely awesome. Great power and all the bells and whistles. The Infiniti dealership treated me like I was some kind of superstar. I'll never buy another car anywhere else. I'm impressed with the car, the service and the dealership. What more could you ask for? I'll have this car for a long time.
A dream to drive
My first Infiniti and I have no desire to buy another car, ever. No complaints: Fun to drive; Comfortable; Roomy; FAST; Beautiful :)... LOVE the safety features & technology pkg. (where has this back-up cam been all my life??). Also, the Infiniti dealership was the best car-buying experience I've ever had.
It's awesome! It's fun, It's serious, It's G.
I admit, I am very picky when it comes to spending my money. All I am wondering is How can they make G37 so perfect!! Handling - precise. Power - Like you got a nuclear slab under your hood [Like Iron Man :P], Interiors - Better than competitors [Lexus had better]. Looks - I love it. Size - Bigger than competitors. G all the way!
I was looking for a fun car in addition to my FX35. I test drove Audi TT, BMW 335ix and the 370Z. The G37x gives me best value and comfort and I can always count on the Infiniti quality. I based my final decision on a combination of these factors - performance, comfort/toys, fun to drive, value and reliability.

I initially wanted a CTS. The G37x for me was the best value, has excellent expected reliability (3rd year in production also tends to work out some early-production bugs), and leaves the other cars in the dust when it comes to acceleration. My numerical ratings may have been overly harsh, but when you look at its competitors (not considering price), the G37x is a bit rough around the edges.
Awesome, Get Yourself One
This is my first entry level luxury car and I must admit I am glad I chose this rocket ship. The G37 is gorgeous, has ridiculous power, handles awesome and is a stunner to look at. I forgot to mention I saved at least 100 in lease price compared to 4 cylinder audi, and also way more than 100 for a 335 bmw. The interior is amazing, the drive is comfortable and the power is insane. The AWD is incredible you can do 70 mph off the highway without hearing a thing.It's just an incredible machine.G37 4ever.
G37 Journey - fun to drive
I've had this car for just over a month and we (my wife and I love it). I had a hard time choosing between the 3 series and the G37 but my wife made the decision easy because she preferred the G37 interior. The navigation and premium package was a must and because we hadn't bought a new car recently, the blue tooth and backup camera were nice features. What got us to the dealership though was predicted RELIABILITY and we chose Infiniti based on my wife's positive experience with Nissan.
Great car this is my 4th Nissan/Infiniti car. They just keep getting better! My favorite aspect of the Nissin/Infiniti family is the fact that they set a benchmark against an overpriced competitor. Then make the Better, Cheaper car, faster! For the most Bang for your buck you cannot go wrong with Nissan/Infiniti line of cars!
Superior car for the price!
This is the second Nissan product I have owned, the first being a '93 300ZX. The Infiniti is an incredible vehicle from nearly every aspect. It's tough to beat what you get for the price with this car. My previous car, a BMW 335i was constantly in and out of the shop.
I moved to Minnesota from AZ a while ago and wanted to purchase a AWD vehicle. After an exhaustive search I chose the G37x and could not be happier. I thought I would miss my BMW 3 series but I am surprised to say I don't. It is a different drive but as a daily commuter way outclasses my old car.
2009 G37 X Review
Performance: 4 Comfort: 4 Fuel Economy: 3 Fun To Drive: 4 Interior Design: 5 Exterior Design: 4 Build Quality: 5 Reliability: 5 Comfort Rating: 4 Performance Rating: 4 Interior Rating: 5 Reliability Rating: 5
I test drove TL S-AWD, BMW 335 X drive, and G37 X. BMW 335 gave me the best driving experience in terms of acceleration, handling, brakes, and comfort. G37 was good too but not as good as BMW. I bought the G37 because I got 6 grand off MSRP and it's roomier inside. I'm sure it's a lot more reliable than BMW.
What An Awesome Car
I absolutely love this vehicle! It is so much fun to drive and for the money is the most powerful coupe you can find at that price.
Final Decision - '09 G37 Journey Sedan
I shopped for some time comparing cars-planned on a BMW but the $9000 diff was too much to contend with. The character of the car is amazing. It's a rocket when you want it or a quiet cruiser. Went to the dealer for a coupe came out with a sedan with no regrets. The engine is the MOST responsive I have owned- quick revving. The transmission is great. I have noticed that it does well in just about every situation except for quick stops - can't shift down fast enough I guess. Otherwise it has aggressive shifting pattern that I prefer - smooth and determined. Personally I think the car is under rated always compared to BMW when $ and reliability really make it the better choice. Biased reviews?
The car has a real nice ride to it and so far I'm very happy with my purchase. I haven't had it that long to really comment on the mpg but so far it's about as advertised. I only have 2 complaints about the car, 1) when you take your foot off the gas and the car begins to slow down it has a rough downshift from 3rd to 2nd. Not something you'd expect from an auto. 2) the brake pads give off way too much brake dust.
Performance, Luxury, Personality
Reviews seem to be pretty consistent on the 3- series/G-series rivalry vis-a-vis performance, lavishness, etc., and I have to agree. I just traded up from a 323i, and although that's an older/lower end car, I do have to say the performance:luxury ratio is far more skewed towards power in the case of the G37. That said, I find it to be a very comfortable, stylish ride, FUN to drive (strong emphasis there), and (especially living in CA), a beautiful, unique, stand-out car. "Bang for the buck" doesn't begin to describe it. Given the choice between a G37 and 335i, I'd still take the G. Implied note: Audi/Mercedes/Lexus -- no comparison.
G37x, a well rounded sport sedan.

Comfortable driver's seat, plenty of room in front, great features. Rear seats are a bit tight but the rear headroom is fine. Handles, steers, stops and accelerates extremely well and is very fun to drive. The controls for bluetooth, nav, climate and audio features are intuitive and easy to use. The backup camera is fantastic. Gas mileage is not great, but it's a heavy car with 328 hp so that's to be expected. Very solid construction and well executed interior.
Everything and more..
Have had this car about a month with 1800 miles on it and I love it. It's the best of both worlds, you can just cruise or drive it hard and it responds flawlessly no matter what! The 7AT helps with the gas mileage and is fun to drive in the manual mode! Coming from a Maxima I expect the same reliability as well.
2009 G37xS Top Choice
This is my first all-wheel drive car. In the past I was a rear-drive enthusiast - I've owned 3 BMW's and most recently a 2003 Infiniti G35S. The ride is top quality and the car is one of the best I have driven. I was initially concerned that the weight of the AWD would hurt the handling and acceleration. The impact is really minimal vs. the S version, but I live in the snow belt. Even on an icy road, it's very hard to spin the wheels - great traction! I was also concerned that the sport seats would be a bit tight, but after driving for a few days, I was convinced that they are an excellent choice (unless you are over 210 lbs.). Overall, I am very pleased.
Excellent build quality and fun to drive
Have it for the last 2 weeks; interior design, comfort and features are outstanding; I switched from a BMW 3 series and will take some time to adjust to the drive; but I think G37 comes close.
G37xS with Nav
I was looking for a pre-owned Lexus GS350 or M35x Infiniti but ran into trouble finding low mileage examples and the new ones were too expensive. I actually thought the Ininiti G and the Lexus IS were too small. One day while waiting to test drive a pre-owned M the sales rep suggested I test drive a new G. I did and it was love at first drive. It is one of the most solid cars I have ever driven, has plenty of power and all of the controls for the Nav, sound system, phone, etc are extremely easy to use. Once you get to use the controls a short time you can figure out how to use all of the functions without referring to an instruction booklet. This car is more than a 3 series and much cheaper!
Love this car
Test drove an Audi A4, Acura TL, BMW 328 and Lexus ES 350. I found the G37x the best combination of performance, comfort and value. This car is fun to drive. I've owned it for a couple of months now, and I still look forward to driving it. I couldn't decide if I should upgrade to the high tech package, but I am very happy I did. The high tech package adds to the overall enjoyment of driving this car. After reading about how poor the fuel efficiency is, I was not expecting much. While it's certainly not great, its not that bad. Unless your expectations are for something that would cost tens of thousands more, you will not be disappointed with this car.
2009 G37xS Sedan... Not disapointed!!
I just turned in my leased 2006 M35 and picked up a new 2009 G37xS Sedan. I am very pleased! This car is much sportier, has 48 more horses than the M, and is a blast to drive. The steering is much tighter and with the all-wheel drive it sticks to the road in dry, rainy, or snowy weather. The sport model comes with the paddle shifters and 18" alloy wheels. Very nice look in the new Moonlight White color.
One of a Kind
This car surprised me. I stopped in to test the G and the M35 as well, but was shocked by the superior handling of the G. I drove the 328, A4 and CTS, but this was superior, especially considering it's the stock setup. Only 500 miles so I haven't tested everything in the NAV pkg yet. Quality construction, handling, steering, quietness, styling and power come for a competition-beating price and make this car a winner. Fuel mileage looks grim, but we'll see after more tanks.

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my 2009 Journey sedan. This thing is fast and handles really well. The dials and controls are mostly intuitive. I like that you don't have to use the scroll wheel to control the stereo and climate controls. The voice commands for the Bluetooth integration work pretty well, but some of the prompts are a little long to get through.
The King is buried and gone!!
I have owned many vehicles including the KING of performance, the ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE and yes the Bimmers are a blast to drive they just lack all of the other stuff you would expect when you are purchasing a luxury vehicle. Simply the Infiniti G37 gives you the performance of the Bimmer but for a whole lot less and ten times more technology and features you cannot even get on the BMW. I know, I know, people always say if you can afford a BMW then money really is not an issue but in this day and age $10k is still $10k. Unless you must have those three letters in your driveway, get the Infiniti G37xS and if you want to blow $10k buy some GM stock.
A great alternative in the rough economy

I wanted something fast, two doors, manual transmission and AWD, and arrived at the Infiniti after eliminating all the competition. Felt like I got 80% of what I wanted, and getting that other 20% would have cost more than double. Even though the Infiniti was the least expensive thing on my list, I'm happy with it and have no regrets.
G37xS Missing Buttons
I had been looking for cars for quite a while and was really looking forward to the new A4 after test driving almost everything. This new G37 may not look like it but it is a great evolution of the G35 Last spring I rented a G35 while on vacation but felt that my B5 S4 was superior after the rental. The gas pedal was very touchy and the transmission had a mind of it's own. This G37xS feels so solid that it's hard to believe it's based on the same car that I drove 8 months ago. Anyone considering a BMW should take a G37 for a test drive and try to deny the primal thrill that this V6 delivers at redline. You should buy this car because it sounds so much better than it's competition.
One of the best cars I have driven!
I looked for quite a while before I ordered my G37xS. I was a big 3 letter fan (BMW) but after I drove the 2008 G35, I was sold. I began to read about the improvements that were coming for 2009 and ordered one as early as I could. The AWD Sport is fantastic. I love the paddle shifters. The car handles very well and it accelerates so smoothly that you barely feel the shifts. The fit and finish are great. I am a big guy and I fit quite comfortably. Everyone talks about the value and I agree, this car is better than every car priced below $65K. The more other cars I drove, the more it made my decision clearer. I have 3,000 miles on it and loved driving every one of them. Fantastic vehicle!
Move over 3 Series!
I was in the market for an entry level luxury sport sedan for 6 months. All I kept hearing was how great the BMW 3 series was. So I test drove it. While a great performer, the interior felt "boring", and the run flat tires were very loud. So I waited a few more months for the G37 to come out. I'm very glad I waited. Infiniti was always trying to catch up to the 3 series in terms of performance and styling, and it seems that they finally caught up. To me, it out performs the BMW, with a much more luxurious interior. Plus it's got more ponies (330 vs 300). Let's not even mention the $10k I saved by going with the G. This is the car for the driving enthusiast that wants the performance and luxury
Hottest coupe for the money.
I just purchased this 2009 G37x coupe for my wife. She previously owned a 2008 G35x sedan, but had always wanted the coupe but they did not make it in an all wheel drive version. This car is quick, sporty, luxurious, handles like a dream and has all the toys you could want. It definitely stands out in a crowd with its looks and keeps you pampered on the inside. We ordered it fully loaded with the tech pkg, nav pkg, prem pkg, spoiler, wood trim, factory impact sensor alarm and the illuminated kick plates. I am 6'2" and have no problem driving or riding in this coupe.
