I bought my 2003 infiniti g35 2 and a half years ago with about 150,000 miles. It was pretty cheep and still in good shape when i bought it. However after putting almost 30,000 miles on it things have gone wrong. For one i have an exhaust leak and the piping is rusted out. I had low profile tires which i had to get new ones. A couple weeks ago i brought it to my shop to get ball joints and wheel barrings on it because of a real bad "clanking" noise. Now it needs brakes(probably because all of the new parts i put in it) however I love this sporty looking car, and dreading the day i have to sell it. I love the ride and its very comfterable all the way around. Another slight problem ive had with this car is the passanger side seat is stuck foward, my trunk will not open and my lock and unlock part of the key doesnt work(maybe because i dropped it to many times).

Good engine - but issues are usually expensive

11 yrs and 135,000 kms basic city use. Durable, however these are the issues that are costly. 1. Brakes - they wear out quicker than most cars and are expensive. 2. Radio/AC malfunction in most models is a costly dealer repair. 3. Some oil leak issues are common 4. Self repairs are not easy for this model, replacing the battery and headlights etc. Otherwise this model is satisfactory for a durable engine and I would rate it a 7/10 for satisfaction.

4 vehicles in the household, BMW, Infiniti QX4, and 2 G35's - an '03 and '04. Have had many other brands. We have kept our G35's all these years as they are a wonderful blend of performance, appearance, and luxury appointments supported by an outstandingly reliable and safe, fun to drive sporty car with usable back seat and cargo/trunk. The only problems - ever - are minor electrical over 9 and 10 years. Door lock actuators on both cars failed ($150 ea) and radio/climate control head repair ($400) on the '04. Both vehicles have about 70k miles garaged but driven year round including rough Canadian winters. Simply unbeatable combination of value, quality, reliability, luxury and fun.

There are known flaws with any vehicle on the market. The 1st gen G35 is known for the AC/Radio control going out, which is not all that big of a deal to have to fix if you know what your doing. With that being said, I bought my 2003 G35 sedan in mid 2012 with 154,000 miles on it. Very high milage for a used car, so I expected to have some problems. The first thing I did was change every drop of fluid in the car, spark plugs, brake pads, wiper blades, ect. to ensure everything would be in good working order, and the car hasnt let me down yet. A respectable 260 HP gets you up and moving to your cruising speed. It has an extremely comfortable cabin with plenty of room for all.

Very fun to drive!

Plenty of power and handles very nice. No problems merging on the freeway. What I find interesting or funny is when I accelerate to get up to the speed limit. When I'm at a red light that turns green; cars behind me are always 2-4 car lengths away when I look in the rear view mirror. This is only with my foot very lightly stepping on the gas pedal too. lol I just bought mine used at 101k miles. I have the Emerald Mist Green/Teal color. Very beautiful and custom looking color. It's been getting a lot of attention from people where ever I go. I have people sticking their heads out their window just to see what kind of car it is. I'm glad I found this one. Not bad for a 9 year old car.

Back in July 2003 when I purchased the Red G35 Coupe MT6 my wife told me it was my 10 year car based on the price. Well here we are at 110,000 miles and it still looks and performs like the day we picked it up. Yes, having a car like this comes with a cost. Tires are certainly one of them along with the periodic window motor/regulator. But getting 23 mpg average and getting 27 mpg on the highway is not bad at all. This is the longest I ever owned a car and to date I can not see another car I'd even want to buy.

Still love my 2003 G35 Coupe

Back in 2002, I was in the market for a new car and had read about the Infiniti G35 sedan. Test drove the sedan and loved it, then saw the photos of the upcoming coupe. I am so glad I waited for the coupe. I purchased mine in October 2002, so it was one of the first G35 coupes sold in my state. It was amazing to drive such a head turner back then, and I love it still. Every time I see it, I recognize again how beautiful it is. I do take care where I park, etc., so it is pristine. Yes, I've had some electrical issues (A/C - stereo control, windows), but for a 9 year old car with 86K miles, it's been a good value. Love my 2003 G35 coupe!

I purchased the car with 82K miles and have owned it for a month. I was looking for a reasonably priced car that was sporty and still had a lot of luxury features. My list included the Acura TL, Lexus IS and BMW 3 series. I chose the Infinity mostly based on price. It does have great looks and your not likely to have to pay blue book for one. However, there is a reason for this. These cars feel really cheap. My wife has a 2004 Lexus RX 330 thats one year newer and about 8K less miles. These cars were close to the same price, but the quality is like night and day. The bose stereo system does sound very good and it is fun to drive. I get 14MPG in town driving.

Good but not great.

Bought used w/ 100K miles after my other car was totaled in a wreck. Overall, a very fast RWD car that looks good and has a solid, reliable 3.5L Nissan powertrain. Nice seats, good visibility. Combined MPG is 21-22, but I've nursed it to 28-29hwy. Push it and you'll see 15-17mpg real quick though. Overall a fun car to drive, looks good, and is reliable enough for me (I'm a salesman and drive a lot). I've heard of people getting 250k miles on theirs, which is good to know. There are some design flaws and electrical issues which are inexcusable though.

great reliability and a lot of fun

bought it with 54k miles. had for 7 months and no mechanical issues except of window motor and power locks, which I figured is a frequent problem. other than standard maintenance have had no problem. rear tires live shorter than usual sedan, but it's a performance car, so this is what you have to pay for driving in style :) interior is very comfortable even though it's a 2003 car. a lot of people who don't know infinities asked whether my car was new :) loved it! rear seats can't really fit tall ppl, but perfect for kids or shorter person. the ride is quiet. sport suspension really lets you feel the road, so you can have better handling.

I would not buy a G-35 2003

Electric Window and wiper motors have gone out, read center brake light out. **Oil dip stick design and location**[violative content deleted] Pananger seat is a pain in the ass and back.

Ergonomic design for interior does not match my Honda 2002 4 dr. The Honda is a better car.

Had this car going on 5 years and 100k miles. I have replaced the brakes and tires more often than a normal car but based on performance and how I drive, it is understood. The engine and transmission are bulletproof. A blast to drive. Better performance dollar for dollar than a BMW (owned an X5 and 330i) but you do sacrifice refinement and fit and finish.

I bought my '03 G35 with 67K miles on it. The car handles beautifully and looks even better. Problem is the circuit board went out and the AC was stuck on 61 degrees and radio/CD player froze (off). Infiniti and dealership gave me the runaround; ended up paying $1300.00 for new circuit board therefore, this is my last Infiniti and/or Nissan.

Have only had it for a few weeks but What a car this is! If you buy a 280 hp vehicle that weighs 4500 lbs with a 3.5 L engine do not expect good gas mileage. I will never argue that. As for the radio and A/C circuit board, I will be back to tell you how to get that done at zero cost. look for my post soon.

My 2003 G35 coupe has been a dream to own. I almost feel like a better person every time I sit behind the steering wheel. My first impression of the car was that it was going to be way out of my budget but after I looked around I found a great one for $14,000. The test drive was sealed the deal. I wanted to see how it would handle turns at high speeds so going around a corner I didn't break. It felt like poetry in car form. After the honeymoon phase of owning the car ended, I was delightfully pleased with how well the car handled in snowy conditions. I purchased Hankook Icebear 300s for about $850 all in all and it worked just fine. Excellent car. I would totally buy one again!

Great car at 140,000!

Purchased my one owner 2003, silver on black, 6-speed, with sport suspension in December '08. Flew to Ohio to check it out and was sold. Had 113,000 when purchased and now 138,000 1 1/2 years later. Only maintenance performed are oil changes/brakes,rotors,tires. Most needed replacing when purchased for 8,300 and valued around 10,500 at the time. The acceleration is much stronger than my mothers '03 Acura TL. Also the RWD makes for better handling in dry conditions, and in rain is not bad compared to the Acura. Don't bother taking out in snow. The clutch is original and still feels sporty as if it were new. However, when it rains the moisture causes the clutch to make unpleasant squeeks.

I'm the only owner, and have really enjoyed this car. The reliability has been excelllent overall, but I have had a few more brake replacements than I expected. Also had the common center console goes blank problem (climate control & audio out), but even though I was out of warranty, there was some factory-sposored huge discount on the replacement. I've driven newer G35s as loaners, but still like the way this one performs and handles, and the great exhaust note. I'm usually at 21 MPG on (busy-freeway) commute and city driving, mainly.

Blistering acceleration, not much more

Car accelerates very well. It's a joy to get on highway on-ramps. However, the suspension is poor - too rigid - as if Infiniti's trying too hard to tell us "look, it's a BMW killer!" It's also unbalanced - feels like weight is 70% front, 30% rear Plenty of room in back for passengers (rear seats "recline" like airline seats). Car is too long - try backing out of a parking garage and you'll see what I mean. Visibility out the back poor. Bose stereo was great. Sold this and am happy to be rid of it.

Don't buy!

After owning this vehicle, (2nd owner) for 3 years I have replaced the whole braking system 3 times, the stereo console quit which had to be replaced at $1000 and then I now have to replace the whole engine at 140,000 km. For a luxury car this is the absolute crap. I will never buy Nissan/Infinity again. Inifinti customer service is a waste of time. Don't Buy!

We have had 3 infinitis and have been very happy until this G35. The circuit board controlling the AC, heater Stereo, CD etc.will not work. It has been stuck with no stereo CD and AC has been at 64 degrees for the Last 8 months. We have been told it will cost $1500-$2000 to fix it if we are lucky. This seems so outrageous to us. We feel infinite has let us down totally. This should be a recall as the mechanic said many cars of this model have come in for the same problem. We are VERY disappointed in infiniti and would never buy another if this is the way they stand behind their clients. So sorry.

I loved the G35 style long before my purchase. I found a G35 sedan and couldn't pass it up. I'm in WI and knew a new all-weather tire would be a must and for the first winter is was no problem getting through the snow (with new tires and 150# of sand in the trunk). This car looks great, but I have never had to put soooo much money into a car before. New brakes at 45K, then less than @ 60K had to replace passenger side lower control arm and now at 66K have to replace driver side lower control arm. And on top of it, I've lost control of the center counsel. I will NEVER BUY Nissan/Infiniti again. I expected better quality from a luxury vehicle!

This is the first car that I have kept this long. Bought it in 2003 and tomorrow will be the first day of 2010. I have been very happy with this car. The only problem I have had has been the cd player. The radio still works but not the cd player. I have been thinking of getting another car since its been 6 years. I'm in no hurry though unless something hits me in the face, I won't bother. This has been the most reliable car I have had.

We just drove our car back to Texas after purchasing it in Chicago, for an AMAZING price! We absolutely love it! Was a little afraid of stereo issues, etc. but purchased a 3 year 36k Infiniti Elite warranty for only $1400, so I figured I'm covered for that and anything else that might go wrong. This car is amazing to drive, handles all kinds of roads great! It is truly a drivers car...If you're looking at anything else...and we looked at everything else, this is the way to go!

I have to say overall this has been a very reliable car. After 182,000 miles, it still runs strong and has very little problems. However, over the life of my ownership, I have had to replace the wiper motor, rear axle bearings, radio/climate control electronics and driver seat slide mechanism. It also, as others have noted, has a weak design of the front wheel struts which continually creak when making hard turns. This is especially noticeable during cold winters. I have averaged 28 miles on the highway which is 90% of my yearly miles so it is respectable. All in all I'm sold on Infiniti and have just purchased an 08 M35 as a replacement.

I brought this car for my daughter. I wanted something to last her through college. Last Sunday my husband and I was on our way to the store and got hit by a 2007 G35 that was T-Boned by a drunk driver going a 50 miles a hour. There was 300 yards of debris and both G 35 was totaled, but the safety features saved our life. If we were in any other car my husband would probably be dead. I will be replacing the car with the same model.

This is a great automobile. It is the sport sedan with auto tranny and many other features. The handling is great and the power is zoooom! I use regular fuel (personal choice) & get 22 mpg around town - even more on highway. The required maintenance, or lack of, is fantastic, also. Changing oil is the most frequent maintenance item. One brake change in 133,000 miles. I had rims replaced because brake dust stuck to factory rims. Now it is no problem. Had to have some modules replaced 4 years after purchase. The Michelin tires I purchased have lasted over 80k miles. Still get frequent compliments on styling. I plan to keep it for many years.

This one is a legit 6mt, with sport, luxury and Aero Kit from factory. Had to buy used in 2005 after 6 months of searching in LA area for this package, very rare. The car has been nothing but amazing. Great head turner despite popularity. Great power and manual transmission with precise shifting. A true drivers car. Had lowered and with 19" wheels from day one, great tire life and decent brake life as well. I drive the car as aggressively as I want, same gas mileage around 19-20 mpg mixed, or 23-25 on FWY. Installed intake and full exhaust for incredible sound and power that shocks 350z and G37 coupe drivers. Handles like it's on rails at any speed or weather, granted this is LA.

While the car is very cute and handles well it has proven to be a money pit in my opinion. Have owned the car not quite 2 years and have replaced brake pads and rotors twice...it literally eats them - found that out after I purchased, should have researched more! The gas mileage is terrible...around town lucky to get 14-16 mpg...hwy is better at around 22 mpg. Nice car but wouldn't buy it again.

I Bought my 2003 G35 sedan used, october 2008 with 130,000K. Got it for a great price. I love the car its great compared to the Chrysler i used to drive. I will never go Domestic again. This car is i believe an Icon for great performance no doubt about it. However its the little things which bring me down such as the very famous electrical problem with the center console that no longer works for me and will cost over $1000 since parts alone are $900 and the recall doesn't apply to my VIN number. Other electrical such as the clock light, and wiper blade motor. These are problems I just didn't expect from Infiniti. Any car you buy will have its Flaw, electrical seems to be the G's problem.

Good but not Great

Acceleration onto the freeway is top notch. Comfortable cock pit, but it's a tight fit, even for a small guy like me. The paint could hold up to chips and dings better and you have to change the break pads about every 15k to 20k depending on your driving habits.

Don't buy a used G35

I like the G35 overall but this car is not your usual reliable Japanese sedan. It has weird reliability issues: eg. the suspension lower arm link broken @ 35000miles, the brake squeak @ 38000miles, the dashboard light went out @ 44000miles...all those little things that drive you nuts because you would expect better from Infiniti. I wish I would've gotten an Acura instead (owned 3 of them in the past and had no problem whatsoever at least till 100,000 miles!).

Purchased the car from my brother, 75K, who owned it since new. Replaced my '97 BMW 328i with 120K. The mileage is awful, the maintenance costs are outrageous, the Radio/CD changer cost me 760$ to fix 1 month ago, the tires are super expensive, the trunk has no handle to open it, the driver seat controls are placed in the worse place in the galaxy, there is little storage space in the cabin, the back seats should fold down, BUT - the engine performance and handling is magnificent. My electric red BMW used to stop folks in their tracks-the G35 is "Stately." Is it worth the $ to run?

Test drove this car looking for an Acura TL. Was instantly impressed with the G over the TL. This car is very fun to drive. It is smooth around town but can really go when you want it to. Feels like a V8. Only issues are they eat up tires and brakes too quick. Definitely get the Bose system if you have the choice. Overall a great car for the money.

I wasn't in a market for a car and I have always owned Nissan, but always wanted a G35. I bought my G35 for $3000 at 155000 miles because I know they last for very very long time. It has all the services done for the mileage on the car, Fully loaded nav (with 2008 updated disk $190), sunroof, reclining back seats, cd changer. I love how this thing drives after having a 155000 miles on it. It is still aggressive, when you step on it it moves. I have taken this car up to 125mph on a track with out a problem. All the feature works great without any problem. Even at 155000 miles, retail on this car is $11000. Over all I couldn't have asked for more, for the price I paid, it is a steal.

Love the car

Me and my girlfriend had a few doubts about the car but all have been proven wrong, gas mileage is poor if u drive it hard and yes brakes go quickly but its crash impact ratings sold us and the bargain price. Our previous car was a toyota solara which cost more but wasn't half as fun to drive. Only beefs are the emergency brake interfering with left shin and window controllers are a lil low. Transmission can be slow at times but engine is definitely not. Fun to drive with VDC turned off.

Excellent sport sedan

Most fun ride I've ever had. Hope my next vehicle is somewhere close to it. A little short on tire and brake lives, but more than makes up for it on the pavement. Very roomy interior and trunk. Outstanding acceleration and handling. Had the factory sport suspension package so no lean in the corners, and no lift at all on the highway with the factory aero package. No complaints at all on this car.

Nice looking, that's about it.

I like the way the car looks, but that's about it though. In the first year I have owned this vehicle, I had the driver window repaired, the heated seat go out, the $300 third brake light go out, the clear coat on the wing peel, the rear leather in the rear panel fall off, the $400 front brakes replaced and I average about 20 mpg on the highway and I don't have a lead foot. The gas mileage is about the same as a full-size pickup. We own two other Infinitis and no problems like this one. Good thing the car has a good resale value. I am buying a truck. The gas mileage is about the same and doesn't require premium fuel.

Great get up and go

I have enjoyed my Infiniti owning experience for the most part. Bought it with 55K miles already on it, now at 119K no major issues to report. Only issue is my car has some electrical issues that come and go, radio cuts in & out, power seat sticks. This is a great highway car in the way of maneuvering and great pickup. Not so great on the MPG (one of the reasons I'm trading it in now). Had mostly owned GM vehicles but had to trade my XL Denali (my baby) in for the G35 when the gas hike hit. Have to say I liked my Denali better, just personal preference. Costly to own & on repair, thank god for the mechanic in the family (saved me a lot on labor and routine maintenance costs).

Best car in class

This car is unmatched in terms of acceleration, handling, fun to drive factor. The car is well worth the money even if you buy it second hand. The VQ35 series engine is amazing, and pulls hard when you open it up. The car will drink gas, but it gets decent mpg if you don't punch it every chance you get. Also the warranty is great.

Traded in my G35 yesterday with 95k. Owned it since new. Overall a wonderful car and experience. Never a mechanical problem. Over the last 8 months, wiper motor, window motor and ac fan went with likely more to come. Otherwise regular 30k service from a good independent was fine. I allowed him to put in standard brakes rather than Infiniti for a good savings w/o substantial loss of braking performance. Winter driving with RWD was a problem solved with Blizzak snows. The high level of performance and reliable driving pleasure that this car gave me at a reasonable cost should not be lost. It was a blast to drive to work or explore the backroads. A lot of bang for the buck!!

Love It !

I've owned numerous cars over the years, and this is by far the best I've ever had. Not only is stylish, but the performance great, when you say GO it GOES. I didn't want to be just another BMW out of millions we see around here. This car stands out of the crowd. The only downside is the gas mileage, especially these days. But that's what happens when you trade economy for power :-)

Will never drive anything else!

I absolutely love my G35! This is my first time to own an Infiniti and I am sold completely! This car is so fun to drive and it looks amazing. Yes, the fuel economy is horrible and yes the brakes do go out too soon and yes the idea of controlling the radio and the air conditioner with the same part is not wise (have had experiences with it all), but still, to be an owner of this car, to look at it and drive it is out of this world. Major trunk space! I can't wait to own my next Infiniti. Bring it on!

Awesome Car!

Bought my G35 a short while ago from a dealer and it had 60K miles on it. I have had no trouble with it. The CD player works perfectly, everything is in top shape although I have a few minor areas on the car where the paint is starting to crack, not sure how to fix it but other than that, no complaints. The interior is kind of bland but I bought a Walnut Burl dash kit from wood dash experts, has it installed by myself in 2 hours and it looks better than the wood dashes on the higher end BMWs and the such.

I have owned and test driven a number vehicles. I grew up driving a 1986 Ford Mustang GT and a 1978 Pontiac Trans Am. The G35 is a extremely solid in performance and handling. There is a tremendous amount of low end torque under 3,000 rpms. I was searching for a performance oriented vehicle without paying an exorbitant amount of money. The G35 design is quite unique and appealing to the eye. I was able to purchase the G35 with just 42k miles fully loaded except for navigation for just under 16k. I am extremely happy with the purchase and enjoy driving the vehicle. For the money, Infinti is superior to the BMW3 Series. I plan to keep the G35 for at least 5 years or more. Kudos to Infiniti!

Other than gas mileage and strange location of seat adjustments this has been an excellent car. I'm sure a used one would make a great purchase if it's been maintained. Extremely nice car for the money. Think 5-series at 3-series prices.
