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 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 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.

Great car, love the motor and tranny,rear wheel drive, wonderful performance for the money, black leather wears much better than the light gray, Infiniti needs to put an eight cylinder in the G to compete with the M3, AMG E63 and CTS-V!

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?

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 own a pretty low-mileage (44k) 2009 G37 6MT and I've never had any problems with the car. Recently on the way home from a car wash the car began to shudder and buck when I accelerated past 2500 rpm ...
