- where do i put my change? Small cup holders
Purchased As New
I bought this car for my wife after several months of research. Lexus-ES & Mercedes-C are more cushy and have nowhere near the performance of the G37. I looked at Acura TL, BMW 3, and Audi as serious competitors but the Infiniti offered a more complete package of standard luxury features and performance. The other vehicles nickel and dime you into another price range. My G37 was $32k and it is incredible. Its black/wheat with wood and has beuatfiul lines. The acceleration, handling and braking are impressive. BMW is definitely nice but also overpriced. Anyone that picks the BMW over the Infiniti probably does it for the ?elitist? angle. I?m more down to earth and have less of a need to impress people....read morehide

- Ride, comfort, power, fuel economy....
- Shifting, storage
Purchased As New
I absolutely adore this car! It is absolutely amazing to drive, and so fun just to sit in. One of my biggest disappointments, however, is the rough shifting between gears. I own an automatic, and although you can manually shift it--minus the clutch--I prefer to drive with it regularly. The only way to overcome the sometimes abrasive shifts is to learn when to let up on the gas or brake (I have finally mastered this and no longer feel the abrupt shifts). Secondly, storage inside the cabin is very limited. You can make up for this--somewhat--by using the gargantuon trunk, but there really isn't a center storage console because its so tiny its more a waste of space than usable area. The glove compartment is also tiny, but once again, the trunck makes up for it.
In all, I absolutely LOVE this car and plan on keeping it for many, many more years. The styling inside and out amazes me, and every time I see her, my throat closes a little at seeing just how gorgeous she is....read morehide

I rented the 2010 G37X and was very happy with this car over all.gas mileage for me was 19mpg with a heavy foot,very good brakes, handles like a rear drive sports sedan,i live in seattle and wet surfaces won't slow it down like your average two wheel drive vehicle,nice interior,the ride was a bit bumpy,and there is some tire noise,but not much.This is a great car for the money! The G37x sedan is my next new car....read morehide

- Ideal ride/handling balance, steering feel, power, rear-biased AWD
- Small trunk, quirky proportions, 200 lbs. too heavy.

The G37x is not for everyone, but if you can appreciate its virtues, you won't find anything better for the money. It's seriously quick, with a very pleasant interior and excellent handling.
Exterior/style: sort of "Japanese organic", all flowing lines and curves. I find it more attractive than the "Bangle-ized" Bimmers or the Audi S4's 'econobox' shape, especially from the front. (Let's not even mention the hideous beak on the Acura TL). The G37 can look a bit awkwardly long and narrow from the rear quarters.
Interior: really nice. Terrifically supportive leather seats, especially the driver's; good sight lines, excellent fit & finish. The understated, classy design of the aluminum trim and soft-touch plastics makes for a very pleasant cockpit. There's a very nice blue/white electroluminescent instrument display. I find the overwrought Acura TL interior, and the rather chilly 'industrial' interiors of BMW or Audi far less appealing, but it's certainly a matter of individual taste. The doors close with a bank-vault thud; road noise is modest but present; wind noise is non-existent.
Performance/handling: head of the class. Ride quality tends toward the firm end of the sport/lux spectrum, with an extremely rigid chassis feel. It soaks up minor pavement imperfections perfectly, but you'll feel the bigger bumps. The payoff is very flat cornering with virtually no body roll, and telepathic steering feel. The big Nissan VQ engine is very quiet when loafing, and it makes some dull truck-like noises around town; but plant the accelerator and it rewards you with a thrilling exhaust note that sounds suspiciously like a small V8. The long wheelbase is evident on narrow roads, and it's not as chuckable as my old Subie STI, but the G37 is still a joy to drive on a winding 2-lane. The rear-bias of the AWD system is obvious; tromp on the throttle in a turn and you get fun oversteer before the ESC intervenes, then the front wheels pull you straight out of the curve. Great stuff. You can't get a manual transmission on the G37x, but that's no loss. The 7-speed automatic is smart enough to hold high rpm's when you're driving aggressively. Spring for the sport package and you get a pair of gorgeous leather-wrapped cast-magnesium paddle shifters?they're identical to the ones found in Nissan's GT-R supercar.
Gadgets: the Bose "studio on wheels" sound system is great, with a very simple MP3 interface. The available Nav system is one of the best; the display is good, the interface intuitive, and the controls simple. Voice commands really work, and are very easy to use. The car also interfaces automatically with your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone. Oh, and the back-up camera is way cool.
If you live with significant hills and snowy winters, you quickly learn that rear-drive sport sedans are basically unusable 4 months of the year. Don't let anyone fool you; even with winter tires you won't be slaloming your BMW 335i uphill on snow-covered pavement, unless you enjoy impacting trees or being winched out of ditches. The G37x is a great choice for folks blessed with a 4-seasons climate. The equivalent BMW x-drive models are either much less powerful (328xi) or cost about $12,000 more (335xi), and they're hobbled with much softer suspension tuning. The Audi A4 is far less powerful for similar money, while the S4 is at least $12,000 more expensive when comparably optioned. I disqualified the Acura TL on the basis of its bizarre styling and huge overhangs....read morehide
