I got this G37 RWD Journey to inject some fun in my family car/ 100 miles/day commute routine. It delivered mostly with its responsive engine, communicative steering and pretty stiff but competent suspension. I have a slight issue with the automanual though - it is supposed to have the rev-matching feature but so far it seems to over-rev quite a bit -
so the car surges forward on downshifts (3->2 especially). The seats are nicely shaped but somewhat hard on the bottom - the heater element might be the cause. Anything in the front cupholders seems to get in the way of operating the gearshift stick. The maintenance alert system relies on simple mileage and does not monitor oil/engine state.
This is the second G Sedan X that I have owned.
My first was an 07 G35X and I loved it!
I just traded it in and got an 13 G35X.
You won't regret the decision of buying this car.
Great price backed up by reliability and great customer service.
I didn't have one problem with my first G and it had 68,000 miles on it when I traded her in.
My only issue would be that the interior and exterior styling hasn't changed very much even in 6 years! But, I guess you don't wanna mess with success.
And as far as performance goes, you will not be disappointed. With an avg of 20mpg and 0-60 in the low 5.0 range you can't lose. And lastly, the Bose system and interface is amazing.
I'v had the G37 sport sedan for a year now I have to say this car handles very well. It is a bit firm on the road and that's expected with the sport suspension. The 6 speed shifts are smooth but first gear is quicker then most 6 speeds I've driven. Power is quick and on tap. Navigation works well and the interface is easy and Infiniti did a great job of allowing voice, steering wheel control, dash control and touch screen on every component of the media and navigation for connivence. This is not a car you buy unless you plan on being at the pump. I mainly drive to work and back and the occasional windy road trip but not good for long trips with 17 mpg.
I purchased an upscale 2013 Infiniti G37 Journey Sedan about 12 months ago with the Navigation and Premium packages that is a real pleasure to own and drive. Competitive Sports Sedan Cars are appealing and offer options that others wish for, but BMW, Lexus, Audi, or Mercedes-Benz have similar size and features. Edmunds reviews this sedan as a pretty compelling luxury sport sedan, with caveat that up against newer, more recently updated rivals, it isn't as appealing as it once was... I used Edmunds along with other sites to help make the car selection process easy. I sold my 2008 G35X Sedan with options to offset the price at sale. Beyond the personal choices you make, depreciation is the largest TCO driver. So I?d consider the makes, trims and package options, then choose or trade-off to comment on anything that is new and costs over $40K must be questioned as to why you need that or why it matters. The Infiniti Q50 Sedan as new and similarly configured would be at least $5-10K more, but some of the technology was not for me.
