Pros: overall value for money
Cons: fuel economyThis is my 4th Infiniti - and when the lease is up htere will be a fifth. During this long time of ownership, I have, fortunately been problem free - the only visits are for scheduled maintenance. Pluses are: appearance, quality and integrity of hardware, cockpit layout, seat comfort, quality of sound system, simplicity of navigation system, reliability, power and driveability, Minuses are: fuel economy, and perhaps trunk space.
Germans are not the best
Pros: My nav. I could not even figure out how to use it in the Audi. With Infinite, it is purely intuitive and I can go anywhere without worrying I'll get lost.
Cons: I'd like a larger trunkI was the proud owner of Audis for over 10 years. Then in 2008, when I was ready to replace my sedan with another, prices went up and performance went down with the Audi. I shopped around test driving six different manufacturers. I had never even heard of an Infiniti until I read the high ratings in several magazines. To my amazement, the Infiniti exceeded my criteria, except for gas mileage. I get 19.2 mpg, using my cruise control especially on highways. I continue to be amazed by the consistency of performance, great handling, comfortable seats, great nav, terrific braking and cornering. I always get compliments from the guys at the parking garage on the car's looks. It's definitely a guy car. I love my G35Sx.
As good as it gets...
Cons: NothingLooking for M3 performance for $40,000. This is the car to own. Beautiful, comfortable, & sub 5 second 0-60 (in Sport Mode with some practice), this car is a beast.
