    no way nissan gives infiniti 3 engines for the G-- They already have how many differennt combinations of G-- if and when they give 4cy for the G it will prob be 250-280 hp-- (higher then nissans current 4's in the states) - plus they will prob go the way of lexus and only offer the lower engine with a manual option- thus killing the old 6speed in the 6 cy-- would love to see them keep the manual and bump HP to 350-- and throw in AWD and I will write the check right now. The gov't mandate to get MPG's up will make it interesting for all these car manufactures to maintain performance and squeeze mpg's

    Well since Ford has done that with the Mustang V6, +300HP & 30mpg I dont see why Nissan cannot duplicate this if not better that as well. If history is anything to go by, Nissan tech has always been better than Ford tech so I am pretty confident that not only Nissan can duplicate that but Toyota, Hyundai, Subaru, pretty much anyone you can think of.

    agreed-- lets see what they come up with-- thats my one knock on the g35x 2007 that i have-- car should get closer to 30 mpgs on the highway doing 65-- for the life of my car my mpgs are 18-- yes it spends most of its life on city streets or in the driveway

    You are right, I would settle for mid 20s combined. Its possible this is what the guys in the 335i, S4 and IS350 are getting. I stand to be corrected.

    maybe but all those cars are more coin to get in the door

    How much is it to replace a headlight? Why...? I have a rule to never buy a car wear the headlight replacement is $500 or more. If a headlight costs that much, imagine what a transmission would cost you! It stands to reason I'll never own a Jag or MB, and I am fine with that. The G37 has really piqued my interest though, in that it appears to be a sporty, well made car that one could use for business. I have heard all the good things about the 3.5/3.7 motor, so no qualms there. The motor is usually the last thing to go these days It is all the other things that can nickel and dime you to death. Any high mileage drivers out there? I do about 25K per year so I have to be comfortable over long rides. Does the G37 cut it for a high mileage person? I have been spoiled by some very reliable Hondas over the years and don't want to go backwards on reliability. Also looking at Genesis & LaCrosse but the G is leading at the moment. :D I appreciate any feedback.

    maybe check out consumer reports- they have your answer

    Also, check out Consumer Report's video of their test track review of the G37 sedan. They take the car to its limits. You will probably need to be an online subscriber.

    How much difference does the sport package make on a G37 Journey. I know it has a tuned suspension and LSD, but is the steering feel better.

    Say you had a choice between these 2 -

    1. Journey+nav
    2. Journey+sport

    Which one would you choose. I like the tech toys in the nav but don't want to compromise handling too much. On the other hand if the base car is good enough I don't want to pay for paddles, stitching and better seats.

    I actually would avoid the sport package myself. I find that on cars like this that are already more sporty than touring suspension setup, adding the sport tuned suspension makes for a VERY rough ride. Real world driving conditions are such that the negatives of the bumpier ride (both driver experience and wear and tear) far outweight the positives of improved handling and feel. You just don't find that many occassions to whip around windy turns at high speed, but where I live the roads can get pretty bad, especially in early spring (pothole season).

    We have just purchased a 2010 G37 Sport 6MT sedan with Nav and find the ride is not a problem. It is firm but not jittery (even more pleasant than our 2001 Honda Accord). In contrast, my wife found the 2009 Acura TSX to be unacceptably jittery (as reported by Consumer Reports), and was not willing to buy it (the ugly snout didn't help either).

    However, I think the car handles very well in standard configuration, and navigation can be very helpful. If I had to choose, I would take Nav over sport, except that I only drive MTs (which is only available as sport). Fortunately I was able to also get the Nav.

    Congrats billpaul.

    I have said this before in a previous posting, and someone else made the same observation. I moved from the IS250 to the G35X, now I have a G37xS. I found the ride in the G35X to be more on the Lux side than the IS250. The IS250 tires transmitted way too much noise and each crack on the road was transmitted to the occupants. The G35X did not suffer from any of that. (I am not trying to bash the IS250 here) The only difference I have found with the X and the xS is the steering wheel is much more sensitive on the xS, other than that there isnt much of a difference between the x and the xS. However, the sport package on the X is not the same as the RWD sport package, the latter being more performance oriented whereas on the X, its just for looks really.

    Other good news, I am now averaging 22mpg, combined. I reset my meters this weekend, 4000 miles to date. With my experience on the X, as mileage increase, mpg increases. Not bad for 328hp and intelligent AWD.

    I have a 2005 G35 Coupe with auto/sport package. While it took a little getting used to at first, after five years, I no longer notice the harsher ride. Now if I drive a "normal" car, they feel loose and squishy.

    If you like a car that is tight, get the sport tuned suspension. If you are looking for a boulevard ride, skip it.

    I have been trying to find a figure of the engine torque curve. Can anyone refer me to a website with this info? Thanks.
  • billpaulbillpaul Posts: 103
    Thank you. Is the 2010 any different from the 2008?

    We were driving this weekend in our 1 week old new car while going approx 65 mph when the sunroof just shattered. It was open the tilt setting and it looks like it just popped from the inside out. We were not going under anything like an overpass so nothing fell on it and there are no scratches on the roof that indicate a rock or anything else hit it.

    Took it to the dealer and they claim to have never seen anything like it but were going to call out some Infiniti engineers to look at it. The sales manager seemed to be indicating that we will need to file an insurance claim.

    Needless to say nor to thrilled right now to be looking at another $500 for the deductible on a 1 week old car.

    Wondering if anyone else has had the same problem and if Infiniti has assumed any responsibility.

    More like manufacturer defect. Infiniti should replace that under warranty in good faith, unless they claim that it exploded due to being hit by a rock. If they do then I suggest you take them to court and they will have to prove that. As a luxury brand I'd hope Infiniti would not do this.
  • sweendogysweendogy Posts: 1,108
    that is freak aw-some- your driving along with your new rig and your roof just explodes.. wow- dont know what to tell you on this one but i would google it -see if others have had this happen..

    We are in the process of leasing a new G37x Sedan with NAV and just found out that they do not offer DRLs! I am shocked to say the least. Especially for a car this advanced. Our 2007 Ford Edge did not either but the dealer just set the processer to run them.
    Not with Infiniti. They told me to go to an "aftermarket" stereo shop and have some installed. Of course, this will void our warranty if anything goes wrong.
    Is is time to go back and look at the Lexus and Lincoln MKZ....
    Does anyone have any answers for this problem?
    Thanks in advance.
