There is still quite a bit of time before the release of the new infiniti Q50, Hwo many of you guys plan to trade in your current G Series sedans and coupe for the Q50? I just thought we could see how many of you previous infiniti owners would still be interested in Infiniti vehicles.

I actually own a 2004 infiniti G35 sedan and I've had a few issues here and there but nothing to turn me away from the brand. I'm excited for the release of the new Q50. I will definitely be trading it in for the Q50 :p

I will be trading in my 2005 G35! Would have probably traded in a lot earlier, but once I knew the replacment was coming I have been trying to hold out.

I love it and feel that it was the first car that I bought and got the most for my money, and that is why I want to stick with Infiniti and hope that the price point will continue to be in line to where they have been. I like the power and the features that I got for the price that I paid.

So far have only had to replace the two camshaft sensors, and knocking on wood. Usually when my warranties have run out I have trade the car, but have held on to my G in hope of getting another and now hanging on for the Q50.

Since my G37 is a lease, it is as good as gone when the Q50 comes out.

I'd like to see what the trade in value for a G35 or G37 will be like, I know dealerships love to lowbal people on their vehicles. I've seen one dealership mark up a trade in by $10k once.....crazy!

But it sure beats getting rid of your car on the sport rather than patiently waiting for a buyer, i guess thats the price we pay with going to the dealer.

As soon as the lease is up...

and it's not even a done deal really. I'm still debating...

I'm really thinking about holding onto my car, because it's such a special G37s and it's depreciation/market value is holding so well, it might be worth it to own out the lease and hold onto it for a few more years.

I plan on putting mine up for a trade as soon as the Q50 is for sale here.

hey simpsontide, So after your experience with the lease are you going to be leasing the q50 as well or are you just going to buy it this time?

From a financial perspective it never makes sense to buy out leases. If so you should have financed in the first place.

The last model G37s are likely to hold their value better than a first year model Q50 but if you are leasing the Q50 that would mean you would be able to own 2nd gen Q50 4 years later. The joys of leasing is that you get a brand new car every 4 years or so. :cool:

Well, in general, I don't agree with that. There are special cases where that may not be the case.

There are more "perspectives" other than the financial to take into account that makes buy out a lease a more advantageous option.

I completely agree. My opinion was purely from the financial aspect.

There are 100s of other reasons to buy out a financed car.

But how sweet would it be to own the new Q50? :D Think of all that hybrid torque! And the gas savings! :eek: And the new interior! :cool:

Sorry I'm a bad influence :rolleyes:

Great power without the horrible gas mileage, heck, why not! Just maybe it will be enough for me to not miss my old V8.

I think if there's one more thing I can ask for is turbo. Q50H Turbo!

If Infiniti brings back the Limited Edition models in the Q50 like they did for the 2011; like my current G---Malbec Black with the red seats. There would be no hesitation. :D

I'm still not 100% sure that I am going to trade my G for the Q50. I still love the S4 and have started liking the ATS, although the CUE system is still a huge turn off, and the CLA45 AMG 4-matic is still on my list of cars to check out.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat.

There are at least 6 cars out there that I'm curious to test drive along with the Q50 when the time comes. With such an aggressive price segment, it wouldn't be smart to jump right into a decision without doing some testing and research.

I'm also a fan of the Volvo S60 R-Design and even the Jaguar XF

I use to have one of the original Volvo S60's and I loved it. One of my friends has the T6 and its a great drive, but I just felt bored. I think they're great looking cars, but they don't seem to have a lot of features, don't get me wrong, their safety features are extraordinary, but other than that I felt like it was lacking.

I also love the XF, but its a little out of my price range, unless I pick one up used. Plus I don't have a local Jaguar dealership, the closest one is about an hour and a half to two hours away so that makes service calls difficult.

Right now I'm trying to decide if I want to keep my G and pay it off and get a second car like a Pontiac G8 GT/GXP as a weekend car, but I feel like after a couple of years the G will loose its appeal since its kind of basic. The other thing I'm looking at doing is trading my G in for a 2012 S4 (not a huge fan of the 2013 head light redesign), or the ATS (if they ever fix the CUE system otherwise I'll pass), depending on how the CLA does I may go for that but I'm not digging the FWD platform so it would probably have to be a 4-matic, or I would trade my G in for a 2013 G 6mt or a M56S.

Decisions decisions...

What kind of features are you referring to?

I'm starting to think that maybe your friend's T6 was a base model perhaps?

I test drove the T5 FWD and T6 AWD a few years back. I was kinda impressed I guess.

Now that I think about it it may have been the base model. I believe she had the T6 AWD with the climate package only. It was a couple of years back when they first came out, I actually think she got one of the first ones that hit our local dealerships lot.
