I traded my 2010 G37s for a 2011 EX35 to obtain more flexible space. Very impressed with the ride quality and compared to the G37, the performance is a close second. With the technology pack, the EX35 has becomes a feature-rich product with tools that make highway driving very pleasant. It may not inspire night drives down twisty country roads but it's not a snooze-fest either. Comfortable for a 6'2" guy. Compared to the G37, has a better entry/exit. Rear seat room may be problematic behind someone with the seat mostly back but the dog doesn't complain.
A plush Chestnut interior and Garnet paint color makes my car stand out in a crowd. Great horse power (297) coupled to a smooth 7 speed. AWD for winter (CA) skiing trips. Comfortable leather heated seats, great driving position, turn radius, noise isolation, XM radio, nav system, 9 gb 11 spker sound system make for a surprisingly good touring car w/ rear seats folded down for the wife and I (kids are GONE). W/cross supports on the roof rack - a perfect ski storage system. AWD gets it done in moderate snow conditions (all weather tires limit this). Rear seating ok for short car pooling trips - up to 4 passengers. After 5 months and 6,000 - its a KEEPER! Car is trouble free to date.
Best Kept Secret in Mid Sized Luxury SUV/Crossover

EX35 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Best kept secret of mid sized luxury SUVs. The EX is an exceptional vehicle. It is stylish, fun to drive and has every practical feature one needs in a car. It is real performer to with its 300 HP V6. It's actually too nice to take to Home Depot for mulch or plants but can serve as a great grocery shopping vehicle. The power folding rear seats are a great feature as is the 360 degree camera. It has the best navigation system in its class and awesome Bose sound.
