Default What do you guys think of the G37 Sport

Hey everyone,

I wanted to invoke your opinions on the G37. Their are some good deals to be had right now since they are releasing the Q50 in 3 months and I am thinking of pulling the trigger. We test drove a G37x last weekend and my wife and I both concluded that it is a pretty nice car. I thought it had a great engine, great seats and pretty luxurious. Its obviously no BMW but for the price no one expects it to be. I am seriously considering going all out and picking up a Sport sedan.

Going to be leasing for 24 months. I know I know, leasing is bad. But its not my first.

Is there anything wrong with this car that I should be aware of or any reasons I should consider a competing model?

Thanks.

If you are leasing, what would it matter? Get the car you like and move on.

They are pretty sweet. I loved the one I drove a while back.

My friend (who owned it) said it got pretty bad gas mileage. Other than that, no complaints.

I didn't mean from a reliability perspective, but more along the lines of it doesn't do X as good as a TL OR you will have to deal with X while you have it.

Yea, I hear you. All the ruskies on g37nyc complain about that. But knowing how most of us drive, are you surprised?

Had an 09 G37 and loved it - Just traded it in for an M. Mine was the straight G37 - no x and no sport packages.

It's got most of the benefits of the BMW 335 without the corresponding price tag. The first year of the 7AT had a big surge on the 3>2 downshift, but they've fixed that with a bigger throttle blip by the computer. Other than that, the car was fantastic and had zero problems. Very nice car to drive whether you're on the highway, city or country roads.

If you pull the trigger on a sedan and want a short ram intake (way better sound at WOT), holla - I took mine off before trading the car in.

I hear you can fit 315s on the stock wheels under the stock fenders of the G35, would assumed the G37 is the same.

Nah, can't imagine you would. My point was the only "dealing with it" is dropping it off at the dealer while they give you another car to drive.

The "X" is awd, correct? I didn't realize how much that killed mileage, my 350Z got pretty decent mpg considering.

Usually avg'd 22ish on a tank, but it would touch 28-29 on the highway. The Speed 3 I had after it actually got worse mileage.....but I was always in boost.

Most of my commute is highway so.....

Yea. I found it a bit too small for me. I am 6'1'' and my legs are long so it felt pretty cramped. It was also a little to low, i'm an old man and getting in wasnt easy with my knees. The G37 has the most front legroom of any sedan I have ever been in and its sufficiently high that I dont feel like I have to drop into it when getting in. That's one of the big selling points for me.

The X is but I am looking at the Sport, so its RWD. But for a big 3.7 I wouldnt be surprised if I don't get over 20-22 mpg highway.

The other bitch is it takes Premium.

I think it was a G25, and that experiment is over. Apparently Infiniti had problems selling the smaller engined cars.

I like the G37. Not so crazy about 24 month leases.

Ive driven a G37S a few times (belong to my step father)
The suspension feels pretty good, nice steering responce, decent engine. Its an autotragic, so that made it quite lame regardless of all that. Also the seats are uncomfortable.
