Just don't buy it. I'll bring my sandwich to stay with you to persuade not to buy the car. Almost everything is cheaply designed, constructed and inconveniently structured. Technology is one or two step behind. The command system responds one half to one second later. The compartment is tied together with a string. You have to use your finger nails to pull out gas lid, no pop up.
I literally found this car by accident. Before this car I was a happy owner of a M35h which I absolutely loved but it just was sporty enough. Before the hybrid I owned a FX35 which I ran to almost 200k and it was perfect but I wanted something newer but didn't think I could find anything better than the FX. The M Hybrid was amazing but it was more a luxury cruiser than the sports sedan I wanted. I searched the net just to set what was out there and found this clean M optioned all the way up with the aero kit. The car is absolutely perfect. It's sporty fun sounds amazing, gathers many looks and just what I expect from Infiniti. This is my 5th Infiniti and 10 Nissan product overall and all have been great to me giving many fun trouble-free miles (majority of my Nissan ran to or past 200k before I trade up with the exception of my M35h which was shy of 100k). I hope this will be just as reliable as my previous Nissan/Infiniti's.
While we came to own our fourth Infiniti literally by accident, after a snow plow truck/plow totaled our '14 Q50, it has been love at first sight. We rescued our Obsidian Black, 2013 M37xS from three feet of snow. We drove the 100 miles home in complete confidence, yet another snowstorm, in the sure footed AWD traction. While we dislike the low profile tires, noisy for old people (didn't see those in the three feet of snow) the acceleration, handling and sheer pleasure of driving more than makes up for it's lack of quiet. We are in month 29 of a 39 month lease and will likely get another Infiniti but unsure of which model. The downsides of this uniquely sporty model M are: mileage/gas costs, rims that every curb attacks, complicated navigation system, no 360 camera like the '14 Q50 had.
After almost 3 years of ownership I am very pleased with my Infiniti M37 Sport (now called Q70). It's beautiful, I've had NO mechanical problems and it's a blast to drive. CONSUMER REPORTS was right when they recommended it over the MB E350 and the BMW 5's for 4 straight years (2011-2015). Unlike other car magazines that publish reviews based on the advertising they receive from car manufacturers CONSUMER REPORTS bases their evaluation on 50 objective tests. The M37 is so dependable that it's recommended as a used luxury car by CR. It's a perfect blend of reliability, performance and luxury. Before I bought the M37 I drove both the Mercedes E350 2 door Sport and BMW 5 series. I was not impressed. Both offered cachet names but not much else for the high price. The BMW was not the BMW of my father's generation. The handling was lackluster and the interior was high grade plastic and vinyl (seats). The MB E350 sport was small,had a VERY rough ride and the seats were VERY uncomfortable. Like the BMW the interior was a mixture of plastic and vinyl (leatherette?). IMHO these cars are unacceptable for the $60,00.00 list price. By contrast the M37 Sport was exactly the car that CONSUMER REPORT predicted it would be. The Infiniti was VERY, VERY AGILE and handled much better than the cachet names. The seats were not vinyl but were beautifully double stitched leather. Also the ride was surprisingly better than the more expensive Mercedes E350 sport. Infiniti got it right when they designed this car. I'm very pleased with the M37. I've gotten many complements on my car. It does evoke an unsolicited "WOW" response from many people and I do catch a number of TESLA owners gazing at my car. I've been down to the dealership earlier this year and saw the new version of the M37. It's apparently the same car with new body work. A very handsome design. Conclusion: don't place your trust solely in car magazine/car website reviews. I have purchased many cars over the past 30 years based my decisions on CR's recommendations and have never been disappointed ...... my advise do a lot of reading and do some driving
I frequently love my M37, when the ECU isn't fighting itself it has excellent grunt and acceleration. However, you never know what car you are going to get when you crank it; sometimes it is torquey head snapping acceleration and other times it is a high revving whiner with artificial turbo lag that you have to kick in the rear end to get going and then takes off like a rocketship. I feel this is all due to the software that controls the car and it just isn't right for reliable, spirited driving. I do hope there will be a software upgrade that makes this car perform in a more consistent manner.
Exterior styling, acceleration... when it decides to give it to you, handling.
Infiniti needs to throw that Bose radio/navigation system away, too cumbersome to operate, radio is lifeless (really only treble and bass adjustment on an upgraded Bose system?), integration with IPhone is poor compared to other vehicles.
Finally, the paint on this car is total crapola, very thin and easily damaged, Infiniti should be ashamed at the quality of the paint.
