2009 INFINITI G37 S Sport 2dr Coupe (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I shopped around for almost 3 months as I was in no hurry to buy and am I glad I waited. Other cars I considered were the Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Coupe manual transmission but they're rare and too costly. Also considered the MazdaSpeed 3 but eventually narrowed my search to the G37S and wanted a black one. I finally found a 2009 Black on Black and at an Infiniti dealership. It had 68500 miles on it and was just a gem. We had a great experience and were glad we bought from a dealership rather than from a private seller or used car lot. They pampered us and we left with big smiles on our faces. Although we bought the car "As Is" they resurfaced the 4 discs and installed new pads all around. I notified them when we got home after buying the car and they took care of us. They also did some engine work for free and we got loaners while she was in the shop. We would never have gotten that level of service from a private seller or used car lot. No regrets here. Car drives great and we just love it!

2009 INFINITI G37 Journey 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Had been looking for a very specific 2010 Audi A8L but after 8 months of searching could not find. Had to make a buying decision and wanted a four door, minimum 325 HP and stopped by a dealer a mile from my house and noticed the G37. The first thing I noticed were the subtle muscular lines and posture of the car. When the sales rep started it and the exhaust note perked up my ears. As I sat in the vehicle and did a quick lookup on the Vehicle specs noted that the car had 328 HP, just 22 less than the Audi, yet 1000 lbs lighter. I got familiar with the controls then took it and was shocked at the power pulling out of the lot. Bolted on to the interstate and immediately started realizing that the car was extremely fast, handled extremely well, and hamadryads me smile. Yes, no Quattro drive and not the size of vehicle I truly wanted but I had a cash budget and given the local market didn't turn up an Audi, I went back to the dealer and dumped the cash on his desk and bought the car. Fast forward 8 months and I have "thugged" virtually every car who has given me a nod. Mustang GTs, Challengers, Camaros, 535s to name a few. I am now a complete G37 enthusiast and the dual everhead cam V6 is simply badass (and though rated at 330 HP, some legit publications that have tested it state it is closer to 365 HP!!!' Absolutely love this car

2009 INFINITI G37 Sport 2dr Convertible (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Beautiful 2009 Infiniti G37 convertible, so much fun to drive with top down but had I known that it would require me to fork out over $6400 to have working airbags I would have passed on this car. Infiniti/Nissan knows that the SRS/OCS are not manufactured to function properly in some vehicles, that is why they have a recall on over 900,000 vehicles yet excluded the 2009 models including mine. The sensor in the passenger seat is defective on some 2009 G37s and works opposite to how it was intended, it cuts off airbags when a passenger sits on the seat. I now own a vehicle I do not feel safe in and would never put the lives of my friends and family in danger. I purchased used less than a year ago after surviving a mva where my 1999 vehicle's airbags helped save my life. How can I in good conscience sell it to anyone? This should be a recall from Nissan/Infiniti as they are aware of the seriousness of severe injury or death as a result of manufacturers defect but refuse to fix on 2009. Also has problem with melting dashboard. Get a different year Infiniti or pass to a car manufacturer that values human life. Just wish I had known....

Addendum: Modern Infiniti of Lake Norman talked to Infiniti USA who came through and replaced defective seat. I did pay to get car up to date on service first but did not have to pay for seat. Infiniti definitely cares about the safety of their customers! Totally changed my mind about owning an Infiniti!

2009 INFINITI G37 Journey 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 7A)


Review

I bought this car off a lot as a stolen recovery with 52k miles and a salvage title, so I got it for a GREAT price. Never wrecked, nothing whatsoever wrong with it but for a door seal I had to replace. I love this car, more power than you'll ever need, to the point of breaking the rear tires loose at 75mph on damp pavement when I stepped on it hard to change lanes and the VVT kicked in, YIKES! You can pass anything at any time, and still get 26-28mpg hwy and 22 around town. Handling is precise and crisp without being twitchy, and it handles curves on rails, very nice seat bolsters help too. It rides great, firm, but not uncomfortable at all to my taste. It's helped by smooth TN roads, up in the pothole, frost freeze northern states I may have another opinion. Seats and interior are very comfortable for the long haul, with all the usual luxury. Interior is also very quiet, which I love, not much road noise at all. Now for a couple minor niggles, the cruise control is not all that accurate going up and down hills, picks up speed going down, then takes 3-5mph drop below set speed to kick back in. Also the transmission has a pretty big lag between off throttle to back on engagement. It will scare you the first time you time you slow down and jump back on it to turn in front of someone and it doesn't go! I've gotten used to it and know how avoid it, so it's no big deal to me now. The only other small thing missing is a headphone jack interface to play Pandora off my phone. Bluetooth is only available on the navigation model, and there is a usb connection in the console which works with my IPOD, but I've never been able to figure out how to play Pandora through it. There's also a hard drive you can copy your CD's onto, so there's really no shortage of music options. Overall, I've owned a lot of cars in my many years, but this one really suits my style, aggressive when you want to be, comfortable when you don't, but always ready to rip, and just a joy to drive anytime!
