2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe VS 2012 VW GTI Sign In

Hi,

I know the title compares two completely different car types. I have done plenty of research for my next car and ended up with a G37 coupe and a GTI.

Both cars share plenty of equipment that I like. However, what I am stuck at and need expert help with is comfort and price of maintenance. As I have not driven many cars, I really cannot tell which car is a better daily commuter for me (half of which is a city's bumpy road and the half is a clear highway).

What would you recommend as a better car for a 24 y/o?


Any advice is appreciated. Thanks :)

comfort and price of maintenance
both small vehicles, 2 doors look good but are not ultimate for comfort, both are non domestic so ca-ching $$$ for parts and repairs, 5 or 7 year old vehicles mileage might be a better gauge to use... also did you use insurance cost in comparison, might end up with corvette rates for one, at 24 insurance is an issue.
They have the equipment you like? And these are the only 2 that have it - what would that be? We can add most options.
Be sure to have a professional look them over the cost is money well spent.

Thanks for your reply! Parts and repairs may be more expensive than domestic cars, but I haven't seen a domestic car with the same equipment, speed, and price tag. The g37 is fully loaded from auto-dimming mirrors to Bose speakers. Having to install those on any car that does not have them would be time consuming and such an overall hassle.


I can get both cars for around $13k (including insurance cost). What worries me is if a car is known to have me running to the mechanic for more than fluid more often than not. I understand that both cars are somewhat old, but I currently drive a 13 y/o Honda, so anything is more recent Laugh .

Would you say the Infiniti is more reliable in that regard or vise-versa?


Thanks again :)

 I think your mind is made up, and wanting some one to agree.
Good vehicles - as good as many others.
Have a professional check the vehicle out before purchase - well worth the money spent.
