I am new to the forum and I'm about to buy a 2010 G37S with 100,000 miles on it. I would like to get people's thoughts about the reliability of this car. I would drive it about 15000 miles per year and plan to use it for at least 3 years. Please let me know if you think it is a safe assumption that this car will make it to 150k miles with routine maintenance.
I have heard that the fatal flaw in these cars is a leak in the oil system, specifically in the rear timing cover, caused by a paper gasket used in models up until 2011. Is this a common fault or just something that happens to an unlucky few? I plan to have the dealer test the car's oil pressure before I purchase it.
My previous car was a 2005 Volvo s60r, and unfortunately a cylinder sleeve cracked at 60,000 miles due to a manufacturing defect and the car was totaled. I do not want to have to experience this again- so let me know if you think it is foolish to buy a high mileage g37 that is susceptible to the nightmare oil leak.
*edit* feel free to share ownership stories.. I want to get to know this car well before I buy it.**
