My G70 Design Edition replaced a 2008 Corvette coupe that had been my foul weather DD since 2010. I'm not exactly Corvette-less as I still have my 2009 Corvette convertible that I hope to keep indefinitely!!
Enjoy,

2009 G37S. Loved that car and had zero issues with it. G70 is way more technology advanced than the Infiniti was. It certainly turns more heads than the Infiniti did. I can only hope my G70 holds up as well as my G37S did.
I too had a 2009 G37 sedan, but not the sport. Loved the car, super reliable and quick. In the base G80 now and enjoying the technology upgrade, quietness, and more room. It's not as fast as the G37, but neither am I...

This past Saturday, i traded in my 2017 G80 for a 2019 G90. Hard to part with the G80, but love the G90 all fhe same.

No Genesis Yet!
The G70 in my near future will replace my current lease, a BMW 330ix GT. I think that I will miss the seating room, trunk, and slightly raised ride height, but I expect the G70 to be a better fit for my needs overall.

Interesting how many Infiniti owners here moved to Genesis. I too had a G37S and really loved that car until some a-hole rear ended me and totaled it. Never had any issues in the 9 years I had my Infiniti. Hoping my G70 is very similar.

That's too bad, you probably took good care of it, too. I kept meticulous care and all maintenance records of my G37. I've sold all my old cars myself, and of the 13 I've sold, I've sold it to the first person who looked at it. I detail them exceptionally and price appropriately, provide an Excel file of all records, receipts, provide both keys, the manuals, PDFs of the shop manuals, technical bulletins, recalls, even the original window sticker, and a copy of my original purchase paperwork. It's the new car experience for a used car price.

I sold my Brand new at the time 2014 maxima s. I loved the car but for what is worth I'm in love love with my g80 had every option at half the cost. I got my g80 2015 for 22k with 27k miles as a lease drove 4 hours to get it. I look forward to new one in future.

We must be twins in a former life when it comes to our cars.

My Genesis replaced a '12 Ford Fusion. We actually still have it but my wife drives it now. Great car I just needed something bigger for my size and long commute.

Not my first Hyundai either. I had a '94 Elantra in high school. Learned how to drive a stick in that car.

Same I had a 2001 Stick Accent out of high school, tore up the roads with that thing, part of the reason I was confident going with a genesis.

traded in 2016 Sonata Hybrid for 2016 Genesis 3.8 AWD. Love the performance but man do I miss the 40mpg/600 mi to the tank! Wanted to make sure I got CPO since my Sonata was purchased brand new and wanted to keep warranty.

I believe CPO is the way to go . I have a 15 5.0 I purchased in April, and just love the car!! Nice cars they are.

Another Indiniti G37S (2012) owner who went to Genesis (2020 G70 3.3t Sport). The Infiniti stays in the family, though - I have two 16 year olds taking their drivers test next month. 😬

Congratulations (I think) Two at once should be fun. I spoke to your insurance agent and he said one they are on the policy he can take that vacation in Tahiti.
Ugh. Calling the agent tomorrow to add the G70 to my policy (just got it yesterday) and will be asking for a quote to add the twins. I'll have to keep some nitro pills handy.

When I added my teens, years ago, my agent said "just get a car you can afford to lose, and put liability-only on it".

He also said that girls get into fender benders in parking lots, but boys just total the car. So, I bought my daughter a four year old Civic, and my son a seven year old Sentra.

My son totaled the Sentra in the 2nd year, and my daughter's boyfriend totaled her Civic in year 3. Guess my agent was right.

Rates were not that bad.
