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.
Great car -- one issue
Cons: Potentially dangerous lack of visibilityTerrific ride. The design's major and for me fatal flaw is the lack of sight lines. Without the rear view and side view cameras, you'd only know about someone or a car to your side or behind you when you hear the crunching sound.
Grinning from ear to ear
Pros: Great nav package, sound system, music box (hard drive) and of course the way it handles.
Cons: Still a bit to say how much I don't like the gas mileage, but this is not necessarily a 'green' car, to say the least.After literally months of research, test drives and driving my wife crazy, I pulled the trigger on a 2010 G37x-S with all the bells and whistles; the only option I did not get was the tech package. After only a few days, I am still anxious to jump in the car every chance I get, hear that nice low rumble of the engine, and drive....anywhere! With all the gizmos, it's a real guy car, but I assume it would be a big hit with anyone. By the way, my wife loves it.
Pros: comfort and performance
Cons: no direct iPod connection, sucks in snowBest cost/value ratio of any lux car on the market.
Infiniti G35x the best of all worlds
Cons: Nothing-I love it all!After driving a friends infinity G sedan, I liked it so I purchased one for myself. The Model I have is the all wheel drive G35x(now branded G37x) Infiniti blends luxury, handling and power better than most. I love the car's performance! My 2006 has 280 hp; the newer model has 330hp; trust me, these cars 'fly'! I've owned many luxury cars; but none were as fast ,nor looked and handled as well as my G for the money. I have paid 10 grand more for other comparable models which did not measure up to Infinity! My wife now loves the car; In fact ,we just got her The EX hatchback luxury Sedan that has a 297hp motor. We both cannot say enough about Infinity!
Great car for the $
Pros: The engine
Cons: the rear seatingI bought this car used in 2009 for around 17K with 47,000 miles and man it has been a blast to drive. The car runs perfectly and when I did a 60 K service last week I only had to change the serpentine belts. This vehicle is manual with the sports tuned suspension that sticks! For the price of a new Fit you get the performance of BMW. Excellent deal.
Pros: The engine
Cons: the colorLove the car. Great value for the money. Quick and handles well. Going on 3 years and no problems whatsoever. My only regret is not getting a different color.
