We had a 2009 G37X sedan for 6 years since new. Mechanically it was perfect and never returned to the dealer for any repair. The 3.7 engine makes about 328 HP and it was fun and comfortable to drive. It got 27 mpg at 65 to 70 miles per hour on fairly flat 2 lane roads. The 2010 uses the same engine and transmission and if it has properly been serviced it should last a good long time.

I've had an '09 G37x and now a '13 G37xS, and can verify with my other pro mechanics that the G37 is one of the most reliable autos ever produced anywhere by anybody. Even brake rotors last longer than expected! On the negative side the twin exhaust will get a bit laborious to deal with after a bunch of salty winters. That said, it's a pig on fuel in the city, and really should run on premium (although many don't). Handling is excellent, but steering has a dull center-feel, regardless of what tire/wheel tricks are played (I've tried them all). Note that the cheapest important upgrade is to replace the skinny rear antisway bar with the fatter one from the G37 Coupe. You'll be amazed at how the rear end now feels tied to the car better. I run stock 225/50-18 front and 245/45-18 rear from the Coupe also for a more neutral stance in the twisties. Note that this staggered geometry does NOT screw up the ATTESA AWD system, despite what Nervous Nellies suggest. I often suggest to my Subaru customers that this is the "Super Subaru" it should make if it had the money to, as it's alum parts and solidity greatly exceed the otherwise-fine Legacy 3.6R Sedan. At current ultracheap fuel prices G37's are quite viable, but I won't keep ours once gas retraces to rationality. At that point we'll probably chase a Legacy Limited 2.5i, put it on V rubber, and miss the G's blstering acceleration as we get +35% better fuel eco. It's interesting to note that Infiniti tried to play this game with the G25 years ago, but no one wanted the Altima's 2.5 in exchange for $5k savings. The Legacy Limited is a full $8k cheaper. So you either aim high with the loaded G37x (S if you want seat memory and 18" wheels) or low with a Leg Ltd. In normal driving they're interchangeable.... Lastly, the stock 17" wheels with all-season tires underperform with the G. 225/55R17 is ok for winter use (as I did with the '09), but I've since dumped those extra wheels to use 18" solely. The stiffer wheel size improves turn-in , and with the stiffer rear Coupe OE swaybar body control is satisfying and competitive with the 3 Series and A4...and SO much more reliable!
