Used Cars:2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe
Hey, if you’re looking to turn heads, and open up some ears with some sexy exhaust pipe rumblings, you will find it hard to beat a 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe. And the cool thing about Infinitis is that although many refinements are made on the brand’s products with each model change, there are not huge variations from year to year on styling. So that means that your used G37 will look every bit as hot as the 2012 version. Few people will have any idea that your car is not a new one. The 2009 G37 Coupe is an outstanding handler, lusty companion on sweeps of highway, and is one of the fastest coupes around. It’s a cool ride for anybody. The base 2009 G37 Coupe sells for around $28,825 with an all-wheel drive used 2009 version goihng for $29,450 these days according to VMR’s Used Car Prices guide (www.vmrintl.com). And better still, there were only 3 complaints of any kind in my carstats.com–one involving the airbags and seatbelts, another involved electrical system concerns, and the last included a minor powertrain glitch. No investigations or recalls either. Here’s what Automobile Journal thought of the 2009 G37 Coupe when we test drove it: “Finally. Infiniti stirred up a lot of excitement when word came down that it would soon offer its hot G37 Coupe in an all-wheel-drive version, and after a bit of a wait—it’s here.
If you order a G37x Coupe, you will lose the manual transmission, but the gain in horsepower from the 328 horsepower 3.7-liter V-6 engine is well worth it. As you might guess, it brings strong acceleration along with impressive handling and steering feel on the road. You also get the seven speed automatic, which means that even while you drive this car in the way that it clearly begs to be driven, you still manage to get over 20 miles per gallon—a nice benefit when you consider how much fun this car is to drive. Among the other new features for 2009 is the scratch shield paint, which the company says is “self-healing.” And of course, there’s the 2009 G37 convertible, which we’re all waiting for here at Automobile Journal. Though the G37x Coupe prices start at $38,500, by the time you add some popular options, you’re probably looking at closer to $50,000, it’s worth every penny. It’s a finely tuned, fabulous automobile. While performance is clearly the name of the game with the G37x, it never lets you forget that it is a luxury car, too. Just look at the touches you get on it. You get illuminated kick plates, wood grain and sporty leather seats, not to mention a rather large back seat. It has all the feel and sound of a sports car, without looking like your neighbor’s souped-up Honda Civic. In sum, the G37x is for the confident driver who knows that his ride is faster than many and drives better than most—and maybe most important—I give it 9 out of 10 on the chick magnet scale!”
