I'm not sure what this is supposed to be, but after the dealer tricked me into it with a weekend-long test drive, I bought it. All I know is that it's the closest that I could come to a new (ish) G37 that has room for a dog in the trunk and two child seats in the back seat. I looked at lots of things from CX-5s (almost bought one) to GS350s to Mazda6 2.5ts to Accord 2.0t 6-speeds, and none of them did it for me. Nothing made me want to get rid of my G35S. This one looks about the same inside (even though it's 9 years newer... funny joke, Infiniti) and has a very similar driving dynamic to that car, which did the trick. It was also priced reasonably and the dealer didn't offer me a terrible trade in on my old car. I decided to pay the grand or a little more that I could have made on CL to not have to deal with CL.
I'm a little bummed to lose adaptive cruise control and a HDD to rip CDs to (seriously, it was useful), but happy to gain 105k less miles, 3 years of powertrain warranty, CPO coverage, more MPGs (24 around town, 29 on the highway... seems high to me), and a surprisingly neat 360 degree camera. It still has adaptive HIDs and a nice stereo, which is good. I might have to add paddle shifters, though that might not jive with the CPO warranty. On that note, they really improved the 7-speed programming vs. the last G37S that I drove. It's quick, locks up early, and is smooth. I don't recall that being the case in the G37.
I think the G35 was mad at me though. As I was getting it ready to trade in, the hood fell on my head. Whoever wins it at the auction: it needs some new hood struts.
