2010 Infinti G37 Sedan Journey Anniversary Edition

I was lucky enough to nab the G37 Anniversary Edition for a long weekend so I got to spend some quality time behind the wheel. The chassis is excellent; the steering has nice feel and is perfectly weighted -- I actually prefer it to the benchmark BMW 3-series -- and the ride is firm but rarely brittle even on Detroit's cracked and crumbling roads. I was disappointed by the G's engine and transmission though. Under normal driving conditions, they work in concert quite well: the engine provides plenty of power and the 7-speed automatic shifts quickly and almost imperceptibly. But under hard acceleration such as highway merging, the engine sounds like it's screaming for mercy and the 7-speed automatic's downshifts turn somewhat violent.

Like Rusty, I actually really like the muted red leather on the seating surfaces although I'm not sure I would be daring enough to order them for fear that I would tire of them pretty quickly. The cabin is comfortable and nicely laid out and the driver's seat feels as if it were made for me. Despite a few faults, from behind the wheel and aesthetically, the G37 is a world-class luxury sports sedan that all but the most demanding enthusiasts would enjoy.

My wife and I just bought the Anniversary Edition but the Coupe, which is considerably different than the sedan. First, the coupe is 330 hp rather than 328. The interior is superior in that it is Red Maple wood and stainless. Everything said is true except to us the engine isn't nearly as loud or harsh as the new Mustang GT which is purposefully loud because of the piping in to the cabin. The Infiniti is nimble, extremely quick, and does have a taut, almost European ride. We love it and it's nice to know we have one of only 200 Anniversary coupes in the U.S.
