So about a month ago I got rear ended in the wife's G, and finally settled up a total loss claim with State Farm today.
I didn't post in the G area too much, but that's mostly because the G has to be overall the most reliable car I've ever owned. In over 11 years of ownership at about 168K logged, she saw the shop twice. Once to have bolts in the X-Brace behind the back seat tightened to stop a sqeak, and for a couple of TSB squeak and rattle issues- and once to have the driver's seat track replaced under the extended warranty. As far as actual mechanical failures, I had to replace the radiator, one camshaft position sensor, and a front wheel hub assembly. Had I kept it, I would have needed to address a front ball joint that had a torn boot, and "VDC Off" and "SLIP" lights that were stuck on. The gas gauge also didn't work right for several years. Everything else was normal fluid maintenance, and wear items like brake pads, tires, and batteries. The biggest disappointment was that the clear coat on the paint started failing a few years ago, so the car looked like hell - but mechanically that car was rock solid!
We replaced her with a soul-less Toyota, the first non-Nissan product ever titled in my name. With a second child on the way, we needed more room, and a 4Runner made sense. The wife couldn't warm up to the MallFinder, the QX60 depreciates too fast, and the 4Runner has a history of holding it's value well. I miss the throttle response and handling of the G every time I drive it.
