You are in the Infiniti G35
What is this discussion about?
Infiniti G37, Sedan
#9 of 27 Good bye, Infiniti!

I will be leaving the Infiniti family reluctantly. I have always owned stick shift cars, except a 1988 Sable Wagon that I bought to accommodate two kids and four adults for a short time. In fact, all members of my immediate family own and drive manuals. I do because I like to be engaged in the driving process. I am also fortunate that I do not live in gridlock central as many do in large cities, so I am able to indulge my preference. My last five cars (1990 Honda Accord, 1993 Toyota Camry V6 SE, 1998 Nissan Maxima SE, 2003 Infiniti G35, and my present ride 2006 Infiniti G35 Sport) have all given me great service. But, in almost every case, I made a change in brand because it was getting harder (or impossible) to get a suitable stick-shift. So, it seems, it will be with Infiniti as well.
So, goodbye Infiniti! It has been nice knowing you!

So you are saying the Infinity G37 is not loud at full throttle? It is comparable with BMW but little shy on comparison with BMW 6-cyl? I was at a BMW dealership last week and almost bought a 328. I am not buying expensive transportation vehicles. LOL, mom had her checkbook out thinking I would say "I like that car." I've dragged on too long to buy a car!
IMHO Nissan 2013 Altima 2.5 is a decent car at test drive and I believe G37 would be a good performer too. Have you owned an Infinity long enough pass warranty to say it is a good car that didn't give you problems? Is the 2014 Q50 promised to be improved on the G37? I just read that mpg is going to be better.
I've been reading car mags and checking forums on edmunds to see which inexpensive vehicle is reliable and with muscles. Seems like all makes and models have some kinks to work out, whatever price range they are in. Is Infinity a car to worry about water pumps? Did you find Infinity electrical and electronic things problem-free?

I have had two Infiniti G35s (2003 and 2006) over the past ten years - very reliable. See Consumer Reports ratings. These are compelling values in their class (sport sedans). I am very disappointed they are no longer (apparently) offering manual transmissions. If I did not care about MT, the new Q would be a no-brainer for me.

I generally agree with your comments. The Q50 looks fantastic. However, Infiniti should have kept the MT option alive for the 3%! It could have been made available only (or mostly) by order. It would have been valued by persons (like me) who are able to indulge their preference for MT because they do not deal with traffic gridlock all the time.
In my case I have moved on -- traded-in my 2006 G35 for a 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD 6MT (sorry about the alphabet assault) just a few days ago. In so doing I also moved from a sport sedan to somewhat of a grand tourer which is fine by me -- the Acura is sporty enough and has greater creature comforts.

A very prudent and sophisticated move- well done Knr5.

I went to an unveiling of the q50 at a Long Island dealership 2 nights ago. I have to say the pictures don't do it justice. I thought from pictures that the front and rear were different but the overall exterior wasn't that different, but it was really nice, it lost a lot of the rolled bubble look the G & M have and I was really impressed by its looks. They confirmed the end of summer intro. The car also had a plaque on it claiming it was a preproduction model.

The other thing that im disappointed with with the new Q50 is the pricing
I cant believe that you cant get what you want in it for around 42000$ It seems like it jumps to around 50000$ compared to the 2013
Maybe im wrong and i hope they change the pricing with the options If you get 1 option then the other one has to come with it and that annoys me and thats what jacks up the pricing
#18 of 27 Anyone buy/lease a Q50 yet?

My 2011 G37S lease is up Feb 2014 and I'm already scouting out my next car - for me the research is half the fun! I've seen the new Q50's at my local dealer but haven't driven one yet. I like the new styling and most of what I hear - what kind of deals are people getting? And how are you liking your car?
