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 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.
If I could count all the hours I have spent reading car magazines, online car reviews, shopping for cars, etc., I'm pretty sure it would represent a good year of my life. These countless hours led me to the 2009 Infiniti G37, which I bought new in 2009 for $30k (list price of around $35k). I put 155,000 miles on it, with zero problems except for changing the brakes twice, the battery once, and power locks that sometimes didn't want to cooperate. Never got the locks fixed because it wasn't a big deal. I put new tires on twice, and I highly recommend the Michelin Primacy - great in the rain, and last for 60k miles. I spent a lot of time looking at various replacement options, but none had the combination of power, handling, interior space, quality, and reliability. So I traded it in last month on a 2013 G37. Just yesterday I had a $40,0000 BMW as a rental, and I was very happy to get back into my car. The used G37 is without question the best value out there. I feel bad for all the people paying high 20's or low 30's for a generic car with half the power and quadruple the problems when they could have a year-or-two-old G37 for less money.
Coming from a cts sedan to a g37x sedan. Obviously I'm interested in vehicles that are sporty yet luxurious. After being disappointed with the cts in its unreliability, high repair costs and poor winter driving performance, I did as much research as possible before making my next vehicle purchase. Which led me to three options, the bmw 328i x drive, audi a4 and the infiniti g37x. I'm a speed and drive enthusiast, so of course i was leaning towards the bmw. After doing further research and test drives, i was easily able to make a decision. Went with the g37x for its power, luxurious feeling interior and low maintenance cost. The bmw had the smoothest feeling engine and most responsive steering. The audi had the most comfortable drive. But the one that felt just right is the g37. It's the fastest of the three while still feeling well balanced. It's never been in the shop once yet. Completely satisfied with this vehicle. I think my next car will also be an infiniti.
I picked up a barely used 2009 G37X a couple of weeks ago after EXTENSIVE research and testing of (BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Lexus is250, Ford Fusion Sport, Mazda 6 V6) and luckily found this barely used G37X. Simply put - all the reviews are spot on - second only to the 3-series, but not a distant 2nd. Great car - I love the drive and interior. At night - headlights are amazingly bright.
