I went looking for a used car. I approached the lot and all seemed well but all the cars looked a lot worse in person than they did online and even drove worse. I inquired if the prices marked on the vehicle were firm after a short test drive and the salesperson assured me that it was firm and no wiggle room. No free 90 day warranties either to show that they stand behind their cars. Although the salesperson was very nice, there's not a chance that i would purchase anything that i looked at off that lot.

This car was built at a higher standards than the newer Infiniti cars. Yes it may lack the advanced technology of today, but it makes it up with reliability, power, handling, and performance. Take care of your regularly scheduled maintenance, and you will not be disappointed. PS. I do own newer Infinities.

Rides like new after 158k miles!

I like to run cars until they die before I purchase a new car. But this car won't die! And when I do get a new car, I will miss the smooth steering, tight turn radius and responsive acceleration. The negatives: 1) the tape deck never worked, and now the entire sound system sometimes goes off and the controls become unresponsive. 2) I used to go through the brakes like butter, and replacement was an expensive proposition, with new pads and rotors every ~15k miles even with a lot of highway driving. Infiniti finally addressed this problem and brakes last much longer - and still stop the car. 3) Replacement parts are expensive, maybe because infiniti cars share parts in order to reduce manufacturing costs. This results in incredibly expensive repairs - for instance, my elevated, central brake light just went out, and the cost of replacement was $500! For a brake light! It turns out that the part itself costs about $250. The positives, which outweigh the negatives by a lot: 1) the car rides and handles as if it were new. People are surprised that the car is over 11 years old. I'M surprised that the car is over 11 years old. 2) Infiniti replacement parts are well-made. I only had to replace the muffler assemblies once. 3) The car is very reliable. It has never been out of service for any length of time for mechanical reasons. 4) Great acceleration - terrific for merging!

I have owned this car for over a year out. My G35 coupe has an intake system, exhaust, and racing chip and it roars. The acceleration is absolutely phenomenal. It takes curbs decently well but people look at it all the time, back in its day it was in a show. The performance is just outstanding and the noise is perfectly divided between the engine and exhaust. I am also 6' 2" and my seat is always all the way back but I am always very comfortable. The bucket seats snug you in nicely and the steering wheel has all the right padding you need. Now to the bad. The brakes are a joke, you have to get aftermarket brakes with this, unless you have the brembos. The stock brakes are an absolute shame for such a vehicle, they are not that great. They are too weak. Thank the lord I have a good mechanic because I would be a lot more broke if not due to the mechanical issues. Probably because its getting old but its getting expensive. The transmission bumps a lot when its cold out before it warms up and there is a click when I shift between park reverse ect. That is concerning. Overall I would definitely buy this car again! Side note: I bought this car 11/28/2014 with 80,000 miles on it

Drives as well as a BMW 3-series but more reliable

I enjoyed this car for many years. It has great handling, acceleration & braking. I have really only one complaint with the design, the doors have a tendency to not stay open when getting in or out and. Fuel economy is fine for what it is. Little repair work or maintenance required over the 10 years I have owned it.

Awesome Car!

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.

This was my very first car, and after about half a year of research I bought one used in October of 2010. From everything I read, this car seemed to have the best balance of performance, practicality, reliability, and style. Although this car has many irritating problems such as poor build quality and horrific gas milage (around 15), I still love it and take care of it like a baby.

Definitely a Love/Hate Relationship!

I purchased my a 2004 G35 back in 2008 from Carmax with 39K Miles on it. Because it was a "luxury" car I decided to put the warranty on it and thank GOD I did. The car had to go in the shop every three months for something and no matter what I took it to the shop for, Infiniti charged $500 to get it back. The brakes are a nightmare, along with the rotors and pistons! I really loved this car but the maintenance was just too much, I feel like the car was in the shop more than I was able to actually drive it, though when it wasn't in the shop and running smoothly, it was quite a sweet ride.

G35 purchased new. 75K mile evaluation.

I love this car even though it's expensive to keep on the road. This model eats tires and brakes. I've been through 5 sets of tires and 3 sets of brakes, and one battery. Car has been dependable and trouble free since new. I just solved one of my biggest complaints 'gas milage'. Through performance tweaking I have increased my overall mpg from 19.2 to 21.27. Prior to modifications best highway mpg was 22.3. I recently completed a 2600 mile trip and top mpg was 25.5 and overall average for the trip was 24.31. The side benefit of the modifications has been more responsive acceleration.

Very good cars! (but not quite perfect)

I own two G35s. A 2003 sedan and a 2004 coupe - both automatics. Review is for the coupe. Overall great cars. I'm constantly finding excuses to drive it because it's so fun. I prefer the couple over the sedan - the sedan is more roomy and a bit more comfortable, but the coupe is more sexy, sporty, and youthful looking. Styling wise, it's hard for the average person to tell it's 7-8 years old. Looks modern and sporty. Biggest difference performance-wise between the two models is the coupe is lower to the ground, and there seems to be less body roll when turning aggressively. When you sit in the couple it feels more like a race car. Not any faster than the sedan, though.

G35 Coupe - In a class by itself!

I purchased my infinity in 2007 with 35,000 miles on odometer. I purchased it because it was rated top in all catagories to include engine performance and low incidence of repair. Recently, I have had a severve problem with engine consuming oil (2 qts. per month). I contacted infinity dealer and they told me to replace both valve covers at $250 per cover. It was a 50\50 chance that it would cure the oil copnsumption problem. After $800 in parts and labor, my infinitety continues to cunsume oil. It appears that the only fix for this problem is the purchase of a new engine. The car is now out of warranty to include oringinal warranty and a 3 year extended warranty purchased in 2007. Trapped!

Beautiful car, but too many problems.

I purchased this car used. Upon review of the Infiniti Vehicle Service I found so many problems already corrected from replacing the stereo/radio, seat heater switches, seat track, rotors brakes, tire pressure sensors, and more. Once I completed the required recall I've had an airbag light issue now. My car is about 5,000 miles over warranty and Infiniti has refused to do anything to help. The first problem they told me the passenger side airbag and module needed replacing. So I paid the $785 to fix. Not a week after getting the car back, it comes on again. Now they've told me they need to replace the driver's side airbag at another $785. Then they can't even guarantee this will fix it.

My two cents worth since I drive 100 miles a day. Gas mileage around 22-23 mph. Easily rides well at 80 mph. My wife got ticket cause she didn't realize she was going 90 mph while listening to AC-DC on excellent sound system. Fun sports car overall. I plan to drive it another 100,000 miles, which I believe is possible. Brakes have given me most problems, requiring more replacement then other vehicles. Passenger window doesn't roll down, which is aggravating. I'll get it fixed one of these days (cost about $400).

Tremendously fun, rediculously thirsty

Funnest and sexiest car I've ever driven. However, the price you pay is 13-15 MPG, and I don't drive heavy- footed at all. My drive to work is 2/3 highway and 1/3 surface roads, and I can barely squeeze 220 miles out of a 15 gallon tank of premium unleaded. I wonder if anyone else gets similar gas mileage... way below the vehicle's rating of 17 city/27 hwy MPG.

Great car, very reliable.I have had it for almost a year and loved it. Though at times you may hate..like during the snow and when your low on cash and premium gas is 3.50/gal. I have only had to rotate the tires and that's it. I also change the oil and filter every 3000 miles.Plus its a chick magnet :)

I absolutely love my G! I have had it for two and a half years now and still have so much fun driving it. We have not had any problems with it other than recently the driver's window stopped working for a day, but now it is working again. I've had Nissans in the past and that tends to be a bit of an issue with them. We do most of the maintaining of it ourselves and it's not expensive to keep up with. We have had many adults in the backseat also and as long as you don't hit bumps too hard to where their head hits the glass, it's not too bad. Been on many road trips in it and get decent gas mileage and have a blast passing people on 2 lane roads! All in all I love it!

Driving this car is absolutely amazing, I have the 2004 g35 coupe and it is great. There is only a few imperfections, one there is some cheap plastics on the interior, the leather on my seat ripped by the side, which seems to happen on MANY coupes. However, the power-train is amazing, the engine as well. Its not 100 percent reliable, but much better than American coupes, and German coupes as well, this car is for someone who wants performance, reliability, luxury, and too have fun while driving it. It is not very practical though. It is for two people and occasionally can seat 4 depending on their height. otherwise great car and WAY better ride and interior than the Z car.

This is a great car--truly a 350Z with 4 seats. The VQ v6 is a strong engine--feels like a v8--so the car is fast. Not so much on the refinement end. Last car was a BMW 330ci (coupe), and while it was a half tick slower, it was more refined: better ride, fewer squeaks and rattles, etc. Truly the G35 is a 4-seat Z or a poor- man's BMW. But great car for all that!

The 2004 Infiniti G35X with AWD offers tight steering and a relatively smooth ride, a combo that is often hard to come by. The pickup is also somewhat impressive. The seats are comfortable and supportive, though not quite large enough in the front. The trunk space is not adequate and the BOSE CD stereo is not what one should expect. Also, the AC and Seat warmers are not up to par

I absolutely love this car. Very powerful and smooth, comfy ride. Great handling. I get tons of compliments on the looks. I actually like the design of this model better than the g37 coupe that's out now. I really feel that they took away the aggressiveness out of the exterior design and made it more docile looking like the Lexus sc. The exhaust tone puts a smile on my face each time I start the car. The seats are very comfortable and hold you in place well in the twisties (and you will love the twisties) this car really is in a league of its own as far as price goes and what you get for your money.

I bought this car and almost traded in my IS 300. i'm glad I didn't. The G coupe is fun in the manual but the brembo brakes wear quickly and the tire noise is unbelievable. I'm thankful for the Bose for that one fact. Sometimes I love this car, other times it drives me nuts. Oh, the clutch wore out at 53K - of course the Atlanta traffic doesn't help things.

I have had my G since November 2006. I traded in a 2005 Altima and the G had fewer miles and was fully loaded. payments were reduced and insurance remained about the same. I have to say, it's a fun car and the only thing that annoys me is I have to get brake work done more frequently than any other car I have owned. I purchased with 40,000 and now have 130,000 miles and have had brakes done 4 times now. I will consider a newer g but I hope the brake issue has been solved. Infiniti g is a sports sedan and so I realize that the higher performance parts do cost more and may require more replacements, overall I enjoy the vehicle as it's been the most fun car I have owned.

Toyota isn't the only car that has experienced unintended acceleration problems. I just had the same thing happen in my 2004 Infiniti G35. I was sitting at a dead stop with my foot on the brake when my car suddenly took off full speed ahead. It hit the car sitting several feet in front of me. I hit so hard that the damage to my Infiniti exceeded $7800. Don't know at this point if Infiniti ever did a recall on these models. I would love to know who else has experienced this problem and what repairs need to be done to correct the issue.

My Infiniti G35x is the best car I have ever owned. I used to be a Turbo Volvo owner until I took out the Infiniti for a test drive. When I got back I bought the car! I have had it for 4 years and still love the car. It is very quick and responsive. I find it very, very comfortable (as do my passengers). The cost to own it is reasonable although it only get 20 mpg no matter how aggressive or easy I drive. I will always be an Infiniti owner....That should say it all!

Very nice interior great heated seats. Sounds great, got a cold air intake makes very nice engine sound. Smoked the 00-04 yrs mustang gt.

Trust me. This car is a nightmare with the brakes. If you don't believe me, research all of the comments online. We have had the car for 5 years, and have replaced the brakes 5 times! EVERY YEAR!! The car only has 52,000 miles on it. Every time you have to replace the brakes/rotors it is $500. I want to get rid of this lemon!!!!

This is my weekend / fun car. The car as is was fast but the suspension was a bit too "boaty", but getting stiffer swaybars cured that. Had 1 rattle that was fixed during warranty during 1st year. Other than that, I have good luck with mine. It's such a good looking car too. Yes, suspension is stiff, but it's a sports coupe dang it! :) Rear seats best for kids.

People ask me why I bought an "expensive" car - my answer is that, over 5 years, it's probably cost me less than whatever they're driving. 140K miles, NOTHING to fix. Oil, brakes, tires - that's it. Runs, looks, feels almost like new. Big power, room, a blast to drive. Quality costs less in the long run.

I really love the drive and reliability of this car. It's a pleasure to drive and look at. You will not be disappointed. Very reasonable maintenance if not done at the dealership. You just basically change the oil and cabin air filter every 3,750 miles. You owe it to yourself to own one of these cars.

I once loved it, but it's a terrible car

Let me start by saying I love the look, feel and performance of this car. But that's where it ends. I have had problem after problem after problem with this car. Here's the list - power locks, speakers, CD changer, navigation system, cruise control, steering wheel audio controls, brakes, brake calipers...and that's just what was replaced! They can't figure out why I get noise from my moonroof and water on the floor when it rains hard or the ticking from my dash when I step on the brakes on a hot day. As much as I love to drive this car...I can't wait to get rid of it. I have owned three Chevy's, a Pontiac and a Mazda before this. All of them COMBINED did not have this many problems! Hopefully it's a more reliable car now that it's six model years later. After all of the problems I've had with the car as well as dealing with Infiniti themselves, I will NEVER purchase another Infiniti or Nissan product.

Love our G35

We bought our G35 brand new and now have 106,000 miles on it. We have basically changed the oil every 3000 miles, performed regular maintenance, and had the brakes worked on every year. That was the only disappointment. The steering is starting to make some noise now -- will have it checked out, but the car has been trouble free. Thinking about buying another one!

Have owned this car for almost 5 years now. Can't wait to get rid of it. Ride is too stiff to get comfortable. Driving on a bad road is a nightmare. The interior seems to fall apart every time car goes over a bump. Not to mention rattle sound made by interior plastic. Performance is ok. Other than that, this car stinks. Wouldn't buy this car ever again.

Not a comfortable ride.

I bought my 2004 RWD 6-speed manual G35 sedan in 2006. Almost 3 years and 30K miles later, it's still a really fun car to drive. Quick enough to handle most traffic situations. Luxurious enough and very comfortable; love the feel of the steering wheel. No major problems--took it to dealer under warranty for minor annoyances. Clutch is a little heavy; dealer always suggests replacing the clutch, but if it doesn't slip, it's fine--75K miles so far on original clutch. Put on winter tires and it will handle winter with ease.

This car was purchased by me as the 3rd owner at about 74k and had rotors and pads replaced at the dealer, only 7k later they were shot and I'm not an aggressive driver either, it just eats breaks very quickly and they are very "touchy" as well as the gas pedal. The transmission jerks into 2nd gear a lot, and definitely wouldn't recommend using the autoshifter because you will tear up your transmission very quickly, and it's pricey to replace. The car has a cheap feel to all the plastic pieces of the interior. Overall it drives smooth but is ridiculously bumpy on the slightest cracks in pavement. The car is fast but awful on gas, maybe 20MPG, I get 290 miles per tank at most, use 89oct not 93oct.

I like the basics but comfort is wanton

Bought the 6 speed Sports sedan for my wife and is a powerful and fun car to drive but creature comforts are lacking. 6 way drivers seat is mediocre; passenger seat is downright bad - leg comfort and back support is horrible. I do not understand how this car could be considered for car of the year so many times.

Bought this car for $13,500 Cdn with 85K kms on it. Took it immediately to a recommended aftermarket performance shop and dropped another $3000 for a new clutch, tune up, air intake, exhaust, fluids, etc. My opinion of this vehicle mirrors the majority of the comments. It's fast, luxurious, and reliable - but it's best feature by far is its value. BMW, Lexus, & Audi simply can't touch this car for the same price. Although I have a few performance goodies on it, I still surprise many vehicles costing a whole lot more. As a used car value, the G35 is definitely one of the best out there. Is it as good as the German cars - maybe you should ask the BMW drivers who look at my tail lights.

Beautiful Car but Proceed with Caution

My G35 exceeds expectations in interior exterior styling and has good performance to boot, but the brakes are not good. This is a hidden expense. You will need to replace the brakes and rotors every year at $1,000 a pop. Make sure you think about this before buying. I also had to replace my alternator after two years, although I didn't pay for it because it was under warranty. I'd suggest getting a BMW if you want a stylish, performance car that is more reliable.

Brought this car brand new. Seems smallish inside but very roomy even for me at 6'2". With only 41k miles we are on our second set of brakes... luckily they were covered under warranty. Very dependable only two trips to the dealership for the brakes. I would buy another G35 in a heart beat!!!

When I bought the car 6 months ago it only had 28000 miles on it and was still under warranty. I had originally been looking at 05 Acura TL, but once I test drove this car, I had to have it. My G35x handles, accelerates, brakes, and handles, great. The leather interior and Bose sound system are sufficiently luxurious. The vehicle also gets a respectable 28 mpg highway in Western PA where no roads are flat or straight. The unique styling of the Infiniti is a head turner. I'm constantly getting compliments on the vehicle.

Purchased new, and have to say this is an incredible car. Still have the original Brembo pads. I've modified the suspension with Eibach Pro springs, and have added a few goodies like a Vortech Supercharger. Pushing 390 rwhp, and car runs great. This car is a head turner, and I have had many people telling me how great it looks. Comfortable highway car, handles great, and still gets 23 mpg highway with all that horse power.

I purchased this car new in March of 2004, trading in a 2000 Infiniti G20t. I love the increased power of this car, and handling is very good. The AWD does well in Midwest winters. I have, however, had the front brakes replaced three times (only at 53,000 miles now), and the 6-disc CD changer completely died around 30,000 miles (replaced under warranty, thank goodness, as it would have cost over $650). I also REALLY wish Infiniti would offer the AWD version with the manual transmission that is available in the RWD version of this car. Performance is still good though, even with an auto transmission.

I bought this car to replace my Jetta 1.8T that had tons of problems. I drive a lot for work (about 100 miles per day) so I've spent a lot of time driving this car. The car is very comfortable and has a nice handling/ride balance. I personally would like it to be a bit less resistant to body roll but it's much sportier than most of what's available. Brakes are pretty strong as well. The 3.5L V6 has plenty of power, and has a nice sound to boot. There are some nice touches throughout the car: the adjustable instrument panel, the reclining rear seats, dual-zone climate control, etc. The backseat is much larger than it looks. I bought it because I thought it presented a great value.

My G35 has only 47,000 on it and is using 1 1/2 quarts of oil every 1000 miles. My dealer states that this is acceptable and that it is normal to have to add oil between changes. ( I change oil every 3000 miles). This is unacceptable for a car that is this expensive. They have refused to address this problem even though warranty is still in effect. Oil light never comes on. The rack and pinion steering has had a leak and is having to be replaced.

I loved the car in '04 and I still do now. In terms of the styling this car is the watermark - they messed up the lines of car with the styling revision of the grill and lights in '05 and the current model just doesn't inspire the head turning that this one had. Reliability - excellent. The only out of pocket expenses was for brakes. Handling is real tight and this car is plenty fast. The additional hp of the later year models doesn't help the mpgs. If they make this model again - with the brake dust issue addressed and the inclusion of larger seats found in the current model... please sign me up for a new one!

Bought my G35 with 25000 miles on it fell in love with its styling. Took a test drive at the dealer and noticed a problem with the rotors, big time noise as the car move forward, the faster it went, the louder it got. Told the sales guy to replace the rotors and they did. I then decided to put 20 inch rims on it - WOW! It looks incredible. People just stop and stare 3000 miles later my rotors went south on me. Another thing is the gas mileage is horrible. If you're a lead foot then I hope you have deep pockets. Remember it only takes 93 octanr and at $4.10 a gallon OUCH!

Best return for the dollar!

Excellent driver's car especially with the MT. Gas mileage was good 25 mpg with mixed driving. I knew what to expect when purchasing: the G is a performance sedan with a fair touch of luxury, but emphasis is on performance. If you're looking for granny luxury, look elsewhere, the G is meant for drivers.

So I bought a used 04 coupe w/optional 5AT. So far I've loved every part of it, it's very fun to drive, very easy to modify if your into those type of things, very pleasing to the eyes. A few problems I have found with the car are that I have two problems with the windows, one has a lazy motor and one has a cliping problems, sometimes when I close the passenger door the window rolls halfway down a second later (sometimes I don't notice). Other problems I have had are minor (seat height control stoped working). But over all I love this car, very fast, kinda bad on gas but that's what you get for how much power you get. I am very happy with my G!

I haven't taken any long trips nor have I driven around all day, but it's comfy, smooth with power and the Bose sound bangs pretty nice.

I traded in my 2004 Altima after walking onto a dealership. The G kept calling me Drive Me! Drive Me!!! I test drove and came home with it. I tap on the accelerator and I am off!!! I like using the manual mode because it seems to jumps off quicker. Yeah! I am a big guy and it is very comfortable. If you expect good gas mileage from sports car then you are delusional. This car is straight up Fun to drive. For the value it is great. You spend way more for a BMW and you don't get cd changer nor leather nor the power unless you get an M series or a 5. This is the ride if you want to have fun and be comfortable.

I have had it in the shop almost once a month. Maybe it is just a lemon. The car just rolled over 94,000 miles and I am trading it in tomorrow. YAY!

I've had my G35 for exactly a year now. It has been an absolute blast to drive (straight line it might not be the fastest, but cornering and grip with some summer tires on it and its second to none). Unfortunately, I've put almost 20000 miles on it and the way gas is going that part has not been fun. If Premium ever hits 4.00 in NJ i think i'll be forced to trade it in seeing as that I'm only getting about 20- 21 MPG lately. But if you want a great ride and to push your car to the limits, this is the car you want

I bought my car used and I have researched everything and anything about the G35x. It is a great car. Smooth, quiet, fun to drive. The AWD is amazing in the winter weather. Once equipped with winter tires and rims instead of All Season tires this car will be a beast through the snow and ice. As expected it is hard on gas. Again I looked into the fuel efficiency before hand.

This is the best car I’ve ever owned. It is a sports car so don’t expect it to be a plush, cushy ride. Tires are noisy but to be expected from performance tires. If you are looking for a luxury car look elsewhere. If you are looking for a performance/luxury car look no further. The car is extremely fun to drive especially around the curves. Clutch takes some time to get used to. Brembo brakes do not have the wear issues that the standard brakes do. DIY maintenance is relatively easy.

So far so good one year into ownership of my 2004 G35 Sedan. This is truly a "sports" sedan, very fun to drive with a lot of get up and go. The car is roomy enough for four adults to travel comfortably, the rear seat room is plenty big. Very rigid frame, solid feeling on the road. I love the styling and performance of the car, very pleased with it. Purchased used with 37k miles and it has not disappointed. Negatives would be the a/c and heat controls are confusing, front seat could be a bit more comfortable. This is not a soft luxury ride, my sport suspension package is very much a drivers car. The engine is a bit loud but that is the nature of this car - sports sedan.

I bought this car the year it came out. I rarely do daily driving but I take many road trips. I love this car! I've driven all across the country by myself and with 4 friends. Every time I get in this car for a road trip the passenger will hear "I love this car." The gas mileage could be better but it's much better than an Audi or BMW 4-wheel drive. Honestly, no complaints. I love it. It took me 2 years to choose a car and now I know why. This car didn't exist! And the new version isn't as good... too much luxury, not enough sport.

I bought this car solely because of how Motor Trend rated it as Car of the Year. The car is very fast, but the tire road noise from the stock Michelin tires is loud and roaring. The paint chips/scratches easy. We only put about 18K on the car already since new and had to replace the front brakes already. Considering selling it and going with a BMW or Mercedes, not at all what I expected from Infiniti. The auto transmission occasionally shifts very hard, had it checked by the dealer, but they could not repeat the problem. The garage door opener paint is fading off. The back seats are not for adults, no head room.

There are way more storage areas then one needs, which is a good thing. The pick up is perfect and I can easily pass people on the hwy when needed. The rear seats recline a little and 2 cup holders in the rear center console allow the rear passengers to ride in comfort.

I traded in a 2005 Nissan Altima for a 2004 Infiniti G35x, and paid the same price for a much better vehicle. It has all the toys such as the snow package, DVD, Bose, etc. (fully loaded) and feel I have a MUCH better vehicle than the Altima. I still grin when I jump in and the AWD is perfect for Wisconsin winters. I feel safer with the safety features and a 4 door sedan is perfect for a family of 3 (daughter in back seat). All in all, the best vehicle I had ever owned, and I have owned toyotas, GMs, Jeeps, and a 1998 BMW 3 series. Can't wait to get my hands on a 2007 or 2008 G sedan in a few years. Way to go Infiniti/Nissan!

I want to first say that this is a great car that's very comfortable for the driver and quick as well. The problems are the front tires seem to wear on the insides. I'm going on my fourth set of tires in the front with 34,000 miles. Since the rear wheels and tires are larger than the fronts you can't rotate at all. The tires make excessive road noise when they wear in this manner. My second complaint is gas mileage. I average 15 miles per gallon and have for three years with this car. I'm an adult and while I drive sort of fast I'm far from a speed demon. Lastly is the turning radius. It's very large and almost impossible to turn around in on a side street. Other than that a great car

For the first 2 months, it's fun to drive. Then the nightmare begins. There's always some noise here & there. The dealership couldn't fix the problem. When the mileage goes to around 12,000, every time I drive the car, I feel like I was riding in a train. My husband & I basically can't talk while driving because of the great noise. Then there's the driver's seat track. Around 20,000, we had problems adjusting it. Thank God it's still under warranty,and the dealer changed it for us. Overall, after having an Accord, BMW, Subaru. Believe me, I'm glad it's time to return the car. Because it's the NOISIEST car I have ever had. jjmess

Drove Nissan Z cars for 25 years. Loved them all. My 1990 was the most reliable, most fun, best car I ever owned. Kept it for 185K miles, 14 years. My Infiniti G35 Coupe is one of the worst, and I'll not keep it much longer. Nissan has dropped many notches on my acceptable car manufacturer list.

I thought I had done my research when purchasing a used Coupe. You should go to the users forums for the best information - I didn't and paid a hefty price. The G35 is an entry level Infiniti. It has poor interior materials that damage easily and it rattles like a spray paint can. It was also in the shop for some fairly substantial warranty repairs and the dealer damaged interior parts. A "Regional Manager" rode with me once and said he couldn't fix all of the rattles so get used to them. The rattles and squeaks were bad enough to make me get rid of the car for a loss. If you want the same, if not better, performance get the 350Z. It's cheaper. Poor customer service! Shame on U!

This car is fun to drive, great on long trips as well as short. It also looks great and I've run across several Mercedes owners who looked at both and wished they had bought the G35 Sedan instead. You certainly don't have to worry about having enough power and acceleration for two- lane driving or Interstate maneuvering. But, it does have some maintenance issues that need to be addressed by Infiniti/Nissan relative to their brake wear. I had a Nissan Pathfinder that has brake issues, particularly front and this car eats brakes as well.

This car's performance is excellent. Three round trips to Florida from MD yielded from a MPG point of view an average of 24 miles per gallon. The ride is firm but expected from a style of this type. If a smoother ride is desired, try the sedan version. The reliability is excellent However the periodic maintenance costs are somewhat more expensive than less expensive coupes. Overall, I rate this vehicle as one of the best rides I've ever had.

I studied this car for 2 years then I finally purchased the 2004 coupe in 7/06. I have the diamond graphite auto wt tiptronic. fully loaded also aero pkg (spoiler) and perfomance pkg(larger wheels ect.. I am happier every day that I decided to purchase this car. On the practical side, this car retains its value better tha most.I waited for the 03-05 to drop in price when the 06's came out but they did not drop more than 1500 at most for the older models. not great when your buying used but once you own one its great to have a car that does not lose its value overnight! also you don't see yourself driving all over town like you would with the bmw's. Fun, reliable, unique, beautiful and a lot for $$$

This car has been exceptional in almost all respects. I have had no problems with the mechanical or integrity aspects of this car.It stops "on a dime" in emergency stops (car in front stopped dead at a green light while going 40 mph.) The power is extraordinary when needed, but don't try "jack rabbit" starts on wet roads, it fishtails a bit. The seats adjust to the perfect position for me (a short female);handling is great and very responsive. This car is a true bargain for the price. Everyone who drives it says "Wow! This car is awesome", including diehard BMW, Lexus,and other car owners.It is the best car I have ever owned (280-300Z's, Supra, BMW etc.) No, I don't work for Infinity or Nissan.

The car is a ton of fun to drive. The stereo has some issues and doesn't work well in the winter. I've had to checked multiple times, but they cant seem to get it right. Brembo brakes are great, but plan on getting them changed every 30k miles (and can run upwards of $3k every time). Tires wear easily and need replacement often. Car is frightening to drive during the winter.

I traded in my Mercedes 340 CLK after experiencing one Chicago winter with it. I researched carefully and chose the G35X. I have never been disappointed! Great drive, handling, security in the snow and great sound system. I had one service problem with the Driver's seat being stuck in a lowered position when I was vacuuming, but they promptly took care of that. You would think there would be a big difference going from a Mercedes to this as far as comfort, handling, but NO! Infinity has "nailed it" and I am extremely happy even after 2 years despite some brake squealing noise and paint chipping easily. LOVE IT.

Just sold my coupe...had it for over 2 years and put 21K miles on it. Gorgeous...quick...fun to drive...but the coupe with the 6 speed is designed for people that are 'into' the car. It does carry a relatively low sales price, but the maintenance required on this automobile is similar to a 60K Mercedes. Brembo brakes...they work great..but they are expensive and wear out at around 20K miles...tires (18" rims)...expensive...and get very loud as they wear out...will last you about 15-20K miles depending on how you drive, tire pressure, etc. I always had people tell me how beautiful my car was....which made me feel good about the expenditures. Great styling....Can't wait for the 07 model

The only real problem is the brakes. They squeak. Usually, when you spend good money on a luxary car the brakes don't squaek. Not with this one. All in all who cars about the brake noise when the car is super fun to drive.

The most impressive thing about this car is its overall driving experience. Similar to BMWs, the steering wheel, arm rest, shifter, controls and pedals are all positioned perfectly making you feel like you're in complete control of the car. Handling is excellent and steering is tight and stable. In addition, the G35x has lots of power under the hood, despite the added weight of AWD. The car accelerates quickly and responds well in the in the 3000-5000 RPM range. Very torquey, but in a good way. If you like to speed a bit, this car owns the highway like it's on greased rails. If you're a conservative driver, the overall stability of the car should give you nice piece of mind.

The G35 is the most practical and satisfying car on the market right now. It's got decent space in the two rear seats and will accomidate a decent sized adult in the two very sporty front seats. I have the manual coupe and the car drives like a champ with a lot of seat pushing acceleration. The only negative thing I would have to say is the some of the buidl quality issues I noticed with my car. The cd player, throttle body, and the right window needed to be warranteed. But, the Infiniti Service dept. took care of those issues without hassle and also offered a free rental during the time they were being fixed. In short, great fun car and great hassle free service.

After over 2 years, I'm starting to see that the G35 can be costly to drive. I only get about 20 mpg combined w/mostly highway driving on a 6MT(below EPA estimates). I'm filling my tank about as often as I filled up my previous car that had a tank half as big and took regular UL. The rear tires were at the 2mm wear limit after only 22k mi -- tires that cost about $250/tire. The Brembo pads will probably last to almost 50k mi, but will cost three times as much as other pads. Rotor swaps will cost over a grand. Even so...the handling, acceleration, and exterior styling still bring a smile to my face. The interior lacks a bit. The NAV is difficult to use because of the jumpy joystick.

No mech. problems and gas mileage is o.k. Ride is stiff at slow speeds but comfortable on highway when it really matters. Hey its not a sedan.

I owned Maximas for 10 years prior to buying the G35. I wondered what the big deal could be between the two. What a mistake, the driving experience between the two cannot be compared. The G35 is extremely agile for a 3400 lb car. I find the interior quite pleasing, especially after looking at some 3 series BMW interiors. The VQ motor is a jewel, not real strong out of the hole but really pulls well through the rest of the RPM range. Cornering with the "midship" design platform was quite pleasing and for the first time, actually made me realize that the car would allow me to corner faster than I wanted to. I am extremely pleased with the G35 and my wife loves it too.

The Infiniti got horrible gas mileage (13mpg) and within one week of purchase it needed new front brake rotors. Car has too much torque and can't get out of its own way. The car creaked and rattled. The BMW is a much better built car, fast, better gas mileage and a more sporty ride.

I got played by the dealer, so I started with a negative attitude. I had several intermittent electrical problems which were never fixed despite several trips to the dealer. For the exceptionally stiff ride and cramped quarters, it doesn't handle any better than my VW Passat. Roll down the window in the rain and get soaked, and the wipers seem to leave a constant puddle on the windshield right in front of my field of view. Fuel economy is well below claims, even if you don't get into it. Cow-catcher front end scrapes most speed bumps and driveway aprons. The rating number is actually going to come out high because of the actual rating questions do not cover any of the problem areas.

I have had this car for two summers now and have logged on 9,000 miles. It only gets out on sunny days. I find the car to be a practical sports car. It is fast, handles well, quiet interior, great creature comforts, brakes excellently, excellent MPG (21 to 25), and has enough room to comfortably take the family. I thought the car was fast until I recently drove a 2005 corvette. This car does not compete in acceleration with a vet but it is very sporty and certainly is more comfortable to drive as a regular driver than the vet. I would buy this car again but I wish the paint was better!

I recently took Infiniti to arbitration concerning faulty front brakes. I had terrible screaching. Six attempts to fix it. The case came down to a shim issue. They insisted that original shim would fix problem but that was not the case. They truly do not know what is wrong with front braking system. If they do they sure led the arbitrator and myself down a dead end street. In which case I won. They had to buy back vehicle and return ALL my money. ALL OF IT...Might not be all cars.

Paid only $30,100 for the premium sedan, fully loaded except for AWD and Nav. You could do a lot worse than Infiniti, and this is probably their best value. I also owned a 94 G-20 sedan, and that's like comparing a peashooter to a bazooka. Buy one of these cars, you will like it.

Bought as a grey import in Dubai, had to have it after seeing it at the used car dealership (20 miles on the clock). Looks gorgeous, a hoot to drive - accidentally got the performance package, which I guess spices it up even more. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a stylish coupe in this price range - it's certainly far classier than a Beemer.

I have always longed for a MBW 3-series but when I test drove a BMW330i sedan in 2004 I balked at the price and walked away wanting a little more torque and horsepower. I am very impressed with the higher torque and horsepower of the g35's sweet V6 and the smoothness of its five-speed automatic transmission. The G35's handling and braking characteristics are at least as good as the 330i sedan and both the interior and the exterior are more attractive. Even after test drving the newly redesigned 2005 BMW sedan I still have no regrets.

After purchasing a used 17k mile G35, I have driven this car non stop for work. Overall, it is an incredibly designed vehicle matching a sporty edge with driver and passenger comforts built all in onein to one. I drove the Audi A4, BMW3 and the Infiniti. All in all the Infiniti gave the best balance PLUS the best warranty. Pound for pound the G35 is the more powerful car. Not only is it more powerful, it also handles well. Although, the BMW and Audi do give you the German sports car feel we all love, the Inifiti gives you a similar feel, better performance overall, and a much better stereo. I guess what I would like to say is more bang for your buck and better resale choose a G35.

The purchase of this car was the worst part. I knew I would pay full price for the car, but they wanted to add on lots of after market equipment or they would not sell it to me. Needless to say I felt ripped off from the start. The car itself drives beautifully and almost makes up for the pain of dealing with the dealership. Love the sound of the engine and still fun to drive

I spent a lot of time comparing and researching cars before buying the G35 Sedan last year, and I am very dissapointed with my choice. Don't get me wrong the main reason for buying this car was drivability - and this car drives very well. However I paid $35000 (paying more to get the excellent Bose stereo), and I am amazed that the interior materials are so cheap and the build quality so poor that even with Bass at zero every song is accompanied by annoying rattles from the door panel in my left ear. I have taken the car in several times, but they don't seem to be able to fix the problem. My last car was a VW GTi which was a lot less expensive but the interior had a superior fit and finish.

This is literally the best car I've ever owned, for me anyway. And that includes Lincolns, Hondas (incl. S2000), corvette, z car. The styling gets comments every day and it's been out for 2 years, the engine is superb, I don't even miss my S2000 except for the cloth top. I don't know what other reviewers are looking for who are rating this low for gas mileage, but I routinely get 18-21 mpg, including a good bit of town driving. OK, I'd like them to move the seat switches (and add memory seats, but I understand that's a problem with a 2-door). The trunk holds my golf bag and more, much more with the rear seat folded down.

The power motors for the drivers seat take up WAY to much space. Combined with the moonroof, this car is a tight fit for anyone near the 6' height mark. I'm 6'2", and with the seat lowered and tilted back 100%, I still cannot sit straight up. This is my only dissapointment with this car.

Love this car !! Have had it for 6 months and love it more each day. Got the black on black, which was the only choice for me. Timeless good looks, and as sporty as anything on the road. It's definitely an eye catcher. I always loved the styling of the 300ZX (90-96), but this one will please the eye for years to come. Acceleration is great and the torque is remarkable in all gears, but would almost have preferred a 5-speed. Range on the low end shifting is a little too short, and somewhat painful over 4,500 rpm. Also a little disappointed in the shifting; not as short or as smoothe as the reviews have suggested. Lots of tranny and clutch vibration.

For those not economically minded, perhaps a porsche or mercedes would be better, but in the lower luxury sports coupe/sedan class, this car can't be beat for the money. You'd have to step up to the M3, 5 series, or GS430 to get this kind of performance from the BMW/Lexus. GREAT LOOKS, sounds like a ferrari; best in class horsepower & torque, and seriously fun to drive. 0- 60 times in the 5 second range. If you love to drive, get the manual. Plenty of room for 4 (see below), and available with all the options for those of you that like creature comforts. Leather interior is nice. Infiniti service is top notch; free car washes for the life of the car.

I just took my car in for my 15K (13.3K actual)maintenance. Overall I still love the vehicle after one full year. More than enough power for my needs and it is still a very comfortable ride. For those following the brake issues, my front and rear brakes were at 8 mil( the delearship was very forthcoming of their 36000 mile extended warranty if the brakes needed replacement). They stated they will replace the brakes at around 2 to 3 mil left. My only significant complaint is that my car (black) is showing many paint chips. Supposedly this was caused by EPA reformulation of paint requirements but I haven't found those requirements, any help would be greatly appreciated on this one.

Absolutely a blast to drive, especially with the windows down listening to the mellifluous exhaust notes the handling is way better than any 3-series bimmer. Has very unique, elegant and sophisticated styling cues. Stereo is pretty darn good producing very tight bass and brilliant highs... Too many things this already great car can improve on but then again, considering the price factor, there simply is not car out there with more bang for the buck in terms of raw power and sophistication (technology) dollar for dollar.

The G35 is an outstanding vehicle which has fullfilled all of my hopes and expectations. It's a tremendous combination of luxury and sports car performance. It has truly earned the label of a GT (grand touring) car, and with a price range of $30,000 - $37000, it also represents an exceptional value. Of course, no car is perfect, and the G does have a few minor flaws, mostly due to poor interior design choices. (See suggested improvements) However, overall the car has been terrific, and I look forward to putting several more thousands of miles on mine.

This car has one major flaw which has disappointed us so much so we will never buy another Infiniti (we've owned several). Our Xenon headlights have been stolen from our car for the 2nd time in less than 6 months. Nissan knew of this problem way back... and supposedly made changes to their 2004 Nissan Maxima... however, Infiniti (which is Nissan) produced the 2004 G- 35 with the same theft friendly lights. We were not advised of this problem and feel quite indignant that Nissan/Infiniti has known about this problem yet continues to profit from the sale of expensive replacement lights. Ours hasn't been the only G in the neighborhood with stolen lights mutltiple times.

I have always loved Toyotas but I finally tried Infiniti. The G35 has wonderful handiling and pick-up. You could really feel the bumps on the highway yet it's a very smooth ride except for the bumps. The car has good leather but not big enough seats or rear leg room. The G35 needs a bigger trunk. This car has real wood, a wonderful stereo and high-quality leather.

A very easy automobile to recommend to anyone who loves to really drive! Handling & power is just about up there with some exotics! 18" wheels are not needed for great handling. That says something! Ride is somewhat stiff but comfortable. So to the seats. After a year, I can report no reliability problems or defects. Dealership cators to every request. Car has a very solid feel along with nice build quality although some materials in the interior are average at best. Not crazy about the orange lighting in guages. Checking the oil is an adventure due to the type & location of the dipstick. CD player can't read MP3's (corrected for 2005)

Test drove 330is, GS430, and TL. G35 sedan had the most interior room for me (6’1”). Best deal in town – under invoice and 1.9% financing for 36month. Wonderful drive quality, very comfortable, torque is ample and available at any speed. Cornering is excellent for a larger car. Great BOSE stereo and all safety options. Dealer was just itching to get cars out of the lot. No gas mileage figures yet – still breaking in that 3.5 L engine. Great overall value.

Cons: The ergonomics of the interior are awful. Even after having the car for over six months, I still find myself searching through the buttons to find the right one to operate the climate or radio. Some of the buttons are difficult to read in dim light, others are in awkward places. The lit gauges reflect in the windshield at night and are in an ugly orange color that's hard on my eyes. Pros: This is a rock solid performer in horrible weather with the AWD. It's fun to drive even with the automatic. Great feel from the steering. It has more room in back than a TSX or a 3-Series, and is adequate as our primary baby-transportation unit. The best sport sedan under $35,000.

At the same time it handles my crappy commute with no problem. The price was right too. I still like the exterior, it hasn't gotten dull on me yet. The interior is fine by me. The engine and brakes still surprise me at how powerful they are. No issues with the car, and I expect it to stay that way.

I have had my 2004 Infiniti G35 Sedan for almost a year and have not had any problems yet. The car is fun to drive and performs extremely well. I wish they did a better job with the interior though. The instrumentation is decent but the faux titanium and less than stellar plastic is very inferior to the Audi A6 I gave to my wife. I expect more from Infiniti. Good thing I spend most of my time looking at the road instead of the cockpit. That said, I think the interior is acceptable, the car itself is very comfortable given the emphasis on performance, and given the price, it is a great value if you value performance more than looks.

The 2004 Infiniti G35 Sedan has great power and sharp looks. The car is very low to the ground, and I ran up on a curb, scratching under the front bumper. (Ouch). The driver seat has the feeling of a jet cockpit, and I feel in total control. There is a blind spot in the back as the car slopes down, but is managable. The suspension is tight, but I've noticed more road noise than with my old Maxima. Not much room in the trunk, but that is not why you would buy this car. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase, and could not find a better "mid life crisis" coupe at this price.

This car is in a class by itself. Acura and Lexus don't even have comparable cars, and the European brands are too expensive and unreliable. I bought a Caribbean Blue 2004 Coupe 6MT from Nationwide Infiniti of Timonium, MD. There were only around 5 new Caribbean Blue 6MT's left in the US at the start of November. It was the least made color and is extremely beautiful and I get endless compliments where ever I go. I wanted an attention-getting color! I've never had a new car purchase go so smoothly and without a bunch of BS!

I really like this car. It is the perfect blend of fun and comfort for a daily commuter like myself. I like knowing that I can smoke just about anyone off a light or passing them on the highway. That is the highpoint of this car by far. Inside, its very nice but not quite up to a BMW, Audi or even the Acura TL for that matter. I almost bought the TL but at the end of the day, AWD was more important than the better interior for me (I live in Colorado). I would recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a solid balance of performance and value.

Test drove the BMW 325, Mercedes 230K, VW Passat,and an Acura TSX. All were too small for a person 6 feet tall who occassionally carry other passengers. The VW's performance was not on par with the other tested cars. Overall performance was above the others. Handling is "right now" with very accurate steering response, directional control and acceleration. The rearview mirror tends to block my center visions somewhat, but other than that this is a well balanced car. The dynamics of the vehicle impart the feeling of you being a better driver, able to respond and avoid obstacles dropped by careless movers--sofas, mattresses, etc.

The G-35 coupe has been great,the car's acceleration is strong,handling is very responsive and predictable. The ride is very good considering the suspension and tires and the interior is well laid out.

It came down to the Infiniti G35, Nissan Maxima/Altima, Subaru Legacy GT, Pontiac Grand prix GTP, or Mazda RX8. I had to have an automatic with 4 doors due to business and marriage. I test drove the RX8, maxima, altima, and G35. The RX8 was fun but the engine just didn't do it for me with the auto so I drove the max and altima. I enjoyed both cars. The Altima(3.5l) pulled hard but the interior was sub par. The max was a luxurious vehicle but the torque steer was too much. The G35 ran hard and firm. The trick is to get all of your research done before hand and bring it with you. I was able to get the 04 G35 with prem/sport/aero/trk mats/spl grds for 31500

To put it simply.....This car is fun, fast,quiet and comfortable. It's also roomy, cleanly designed, intelligently designed and has a killer sound sound system for it being a factory system. The colors and trim are warm and freindly without being ostentatious, simply elegant would be the proper decription.But the trunk seems a bit small. The handling is tight, the ride is taught without harsh. The cabin is a bit noisy until you reach freeway speeds, then quiets out and seems to cruise effortlessly.

My first car out of college was a Datsun 310, then a 240sx,then a Maxima and now the G35x. I never had any problems with the others and don't expect any from this one. I have had American cars for company cars and I have yet to find one I would buy. I traded in a Solara Cov't for the G35x and I can really tell a difference. The Toyota is a great cruiser but has no personality. I love the performance, ride, and looks of my new Infiniti and look for reasons to drive it.

Great coupe for the money

This car is a great fit for a tall driver. The seats are comfortable. There is room for 4 on short trips under 2 hrs. The look of the car is MARVELOUS. It has power and handles very well at speed. One of the best cars that I have driven. At 6ft 4in I have no problem with head or leg room. Comfort-Several long distance trips have been just fine. 10hrs or more. I say take a test drive.

It has excellent balance throughout. Great steering feel, lateral grip is excellent, and the Brembo brakes work extremely well (although I'd love an ABS override switch). The engine has wonderful low-end torque, but it gets a bit too buzzy above 4500 rpm. Because it performs so well, it's easy to compare it to sports cars. And while it holds its own with many of the best, it should most fairly be viewed as the excellent GT car it was designed to be. It absolutely shines on the open road -- fast, comfortable, quiet and very good gas mileage. An absolutely wonderful package.

G35 Coupe, Love it!!

WHEN THE G35 FIRST CAME OUT IN 2003 I FELT THAT IT WAS BY FAR THE BEST 2DR SPORTS CAR YOU CAN GET IN THE 35K PRICE RANGE BUT LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BE IN THE 65K RANGE. TRUST ME I STEPED UP IN PERFORMANCE FROM THE LEXUS SC. I JUST PICKED MINE UP IN SEPT 04, AND JUST CANT GET ENOUGH OF IT. I LOOK FOR EXCUSES TO DRIVE IT HANDLES GREAT ACCELARATES EVEN BETTER AND LOOKS GORGEOUS AT ALL TIMES EVEN IN THE RAIN.

Other than the fact the the more fun you want the more you pay in gas bills, this car is the best that I have ever owned!!! The 6 speed manual cannot be beat.

I'm not a car buff but I find the brakes on this car to be a bit touchy. They seem to grab too quickly giving a jerky braking motion. This car is meant for 4 passengers, not 5. It also becomes uncomfortable to drive for long periods of time. And road noise!! It is the worst I have ever experienced. I thought my previous car, the Chevy Impala was loud, but this car is even worse. Going 70 on a highway one can't even hear what the other is saying without having to talk loud and when it rains the noise is deafening. My car does come with a sun roof.. perhaps that is why it is loud when it rains, but I also had a sunroof in my Impala and It was not loud like this one.

Do yourself a favor and drive this car!

Bought a G35 at a nice price. I have the premium package and the sport suspension package. Former Acura TL driver (2001 model). I have to say, compared to Honda's perfect but bland interior, I love the avant-garde style of the Infiniti both on the inside and outside. Handling is great and is comparable to my Lexus IS300, although power is more. Love the Japanese style of the dashboard and the center display panel. Love the seats as well. To me this car has style and personality and RWD, that and the dealership experience/price sold me on this car over the comparable 2004 Acura TL. What can I tell you, style matters on the Las Vegas.

Traded my g35 sedan (manual) for the coupe. Top shelf product. The 'feel' of the coupe is well worth the difference from sedan to this one. Usuable back seat a real plus. This is a keeper, along with my '78 280z, which has occupied my garage for 26 years. The Bose is more surround/full than the Bose setup in the sedan, which sports a sub...this vehicle with the additional speakers actually sounds a bit better. Not even attempting to access all this power. I'd prefer to see a matched set of tires.

If you turly want a automobile that will make driving fun again. The G35 Coupe will give you that satisfaction. My Coupe has all the bells and whistles, including GPS. From Comfort to power this car has the best balance of any car I've owned, and I've owned all the big named auto's. I'm also surprised by the room. I have carried on several occasion four adults in comfort. This is a great feature. I can say enough at this time. I'll have to review again after about 20,000 miles.

I have long wanted a sports car but with two children could never justify one. I then went to the auto show in Detroit and saw my first G35 coupe there. It was everything I was looking for. It was practical (seats four and gets 24-26mpg), it was sweet looking (great exterior lines and well appointed interior), it was luxurious (leather seating, power heated seats, power moonroof, 6 disc CD player, Nav System and etc), and for the first time for me it had performance (sport car inspired engine, exhaust, suspension, tires, aero package, brakes, and electric gadgets to keep me straight!), dependable, and what a bang for the buck! This car loves to run!!

This car is a treat. I am thoroughly pleased with the quality of the construction and materials used on this vehicle except for the paint, which seems to be a soft and deforms easily. This vehicle combines sport and class very well. Some features, like heated and motorized movement of seats when entering the back, arn't necessary but add to the luxury of the vehicle. I like the subtile attention to small details such as the multitude of windshield wiper speed adjustments and, automated window movement; when opening and closing the doors it produces a tight seal against the rubber door seals yet prevents premature seal wear.

I mostly like the way the car handles and the acceleration. I am not impressed, however, with the heated seats. They barely get lukewarm. So basically in the wintertime when it's really cold out, you probably don't even feel the warmth from the seats. I traded in a BMW X5 for this car and definitely feel that Infinity can and should make some improvements so that it can comparably contend with it's German counterparts. A safety feature this vehicle lacks: the steering wheel controls are not illuminated. In darkness you can't see them which could prove dangerous. Also, when there is sun glare, the compass,outside temperature guage and other console guages can not be seen!

Of course I have to be fair and admit that I bought it to replace a Honda Civic with 100,000+ miles, and that Civic had replaced a Volkswagen Fox with 130,000 miles. I have been referring to the Infiniti as my first adult car. It met my criteria for an "adult car" (it had four doors)and my wife's limitations which were few ("you can buy anything you want so long as it has four wheel drive"). There were only a few cars that were ever in the running. The Audi A4 was out because we had two friends who lived through Audi quality issues (failing ignition coils). In the end it was the BMW 330XI vs. the Infiniti G35X. The Infiniti was just a nicer car for the money.

Excellent over vehicle. The traction and stability controls works well in Wisconsin snow and ice and compares well to front wheel drive autos. A fast crisp handling car that is neutral in tight fast turns right up to the limit of the car. Recommend to anyone that has previous performance sedan experience and compares favorably to BMW for thousands less money. Would definitely buy again. Less favorable traits, stiff suspension makes for a more choppy ride. Rear Seat comfort is adequate but not great for anyone approaching 6 ft. Truck space is smallish for a sedan of this size due to the suspension and rear wheel drive.

Good car but needs some improvement.

Good car, well equipped for a sport coupe, excellent 3-D view Navigation screen, controls are well placed, though the buttons on the steering wheel do not light up at night time. Orange looking instrument cluster blends with the red arrows and it's difficult to read.Tachometer is on the wrong side. Right hand armrest is very low and misplaced. Close ratio manual transmission is absolutely useless.Gears need to be changed all the time.It keeps high RPM on all gears, even 6th.,which results in a massive fuel consumption.Engine is powerful but lacks low end torque. Generally good car, needs power plant,manual transmission and some interior improvement.

My final choices were the BMW 325Ci or the G35c. The question I asked myself was whether I wanted a $35-36k coupe with only 190 HP (BMW 325Ci-$40k for the 330Ci)or a wallet saving $30k coupe with 280HP, muscular looks,outstanding service, and a design that is outstanding and modern in its curves and lines. Sure the Beamer handles well beyond the G35 (it is the ultimate driving experience) and the acceleration is more linear, but for the price, engine, value, and service, the G has no other competitor. With the base model, this sports car is a bargain.

Whoa!

We've never had anything remotely like this car. The performance and handling are unbelievable, and she's a for real head turner in our red w/black leather and the spoiler. It is a true pleasure and feels like something special every time we take her out. The car is completely reliable, and considering the power the gas mileage is reasonably good. When you are in the drivers seat, you get that chic sports car feel with the instrumentation and controls all extremely well thought out.

Prior to picking up my G35X, I looked at several other AWD vehicles, including BMW, Volvo, Mercedes, and Audi. The bang for the buck value was overwhelmingly in favor of the Infiniti. I drove the G35X in blizzards, rainstorms, and all kinds of nasty weather. The AWD performed flawlessly. This car handles like a dream on curvy mountain roads, and can out accelerate most cars on the road, as well as outbrake them. My only minor complaint is the gas mileage, which has been under 20 mpg in mixed driving conditions. Overall, this is a great car.

I bought a 2004 G35 in January. It has been back to the dealer five times already, for unplanned work. The window started rattling and required a fix. Then the dash started popping and required a fix. Then the fix on the window required re-work. Then the carpet came unglued. Then the CD played died. Now the check engine light is on. I sold a 13-year old BMW with 190,000 miles to get the G35, and the BMW was much more reliable. It's too bad, because this is a great deal otherwise. If only the quality matched the deal!

Would buy the car again. Wanted a japanese sports coupe 2+2. Owned a 1984 Toyota Celica GTS which was a fantastic car, but the newer Celica's did not have very much back seat leg room. Found the G35 Coupe had the best among the cars I was reviewing. Very fun car to drive and constantly get compliments on the car.

I test drove the car 4 times and from the beginning I was worried about the seat. I thought I would get use to it and find the proper adjustment. My back has been hurting ever since I got the car. I would give it back right now if it wouldn't cost me so much. The 18" wheels with the low profile tire rides very hard and is loud.

I have finally arrived! This is the sixth Nissan that I have owned. Over the years I have always enjoyed most of what I was buying from them, although each vehicle seemed to have qualities that I did not like. This car makes me feels like I have arrived because it seems to bring together all of the things that I have enjoyed in the others, other than the lack of yard ape storage that my pathfinder had.

Over the past 18 months I have been looking for a sporty, luxurious, dependable, performance car and found it in the G35 Sport Coupe. I studied, tested and read about the Audi A6, BMW 5, Crossfire, Mercedes C320 Sport and Porsche Boxster. I'm extremely pleased with my purchase and feel that I got alot of car for the value. I get looks, compliments and questions about this vehicle everywhere I go. And did I mention that it's a blast to drive. I have had my 6MT/Ivory Pearl/Willow/Bose/Premium Package/Aero Package for about three weeks. The G35 handles great even on the street in downtown Houston. Finally I don't have to reach for knobs to adjust things.

The paint on infinity G35s are terrouble!I have called about my paint job when I had it only 3 months, they know this is a major defect and will not do anything about it because if they fix mine they know they will have to repaint everyones. They use less paint than other dealerships and less clear coat. I was told this by the person in charge of making decisions on repairs. My cars paint looks old and dull. The bugs ate through the paint 3 months after I purchased it. They will not return phone calls and refuse to look at it. I will never buy a infinity again! Every person I see driving a Infinity, I make sure I tell them about the paint.

Purchased my GS35X in Feb and enjoy it more than the day I bought it. Oil changes and general maintenance have been it to date. I looked at the BMW 3 Series prior to my purchase and frankly, don't think they hold a candle to my GS35X. Exceptional value from my viewpoint. The national ratings knock the Infiniti for having cheap interior materials....don't beleive it, I think they are fine. Then again, if that's all the rating agencies can find on this gem.....

I have owned two BMW 3-series and loved the quality of handling and the glass-smooth engines , but tired of the nuisance problems requiring service. My G-35 coupe feels tighter and more powerful than the BMW's and is definitely a head-turner as far as exterior styling. It is a fun driving experience for someone like me who isn't ready to throw in the towel and drive my "grandfather's bouncy sedan". If you think that a car's sole purpose is to get you from point A to point B, this isn't for you. However, if you want a car than can get you where you're going and let you have fun getting there, this is it.

For a while, I struggled btw a BMW and MB sedan. As for coupes...I always liked the Nissan Z but it was TOO sporty...Reminded me of a rich kids car that daddy would buy. When I saw the G35 sport coupe it had the distinguished look the Z lacked and it simply looked great. So I bought it. The Navi and Sat helped too...

What a fun car to drive. I have the upgraded performance package and it is worth it. The handling is precise and comfortable. Power and torque are good, although I would like more lower end torque. The brakes are a little touchier than what I’m use to. I’m finding that the gas mileage is good in both the city and on the highway. I get great comments about the looks of the car. The car is fast and the engine is capable of getting almost all of the speedometer. This was a great buy for me.

Purchased a 2003 auto in May of 2002. Loved it from day one. I put 56k miles on it in two years. Just traded it in for a new 2004 6MT. All I can say is WOW! I thought the auto was fast. The upgraded interior is better (still a little less luxury than I want) The overall package is great. Handling, power, braking, comfort, space - all pluses. And then there is the service... fantastic! (although with the new successes, not quite as good as when Infiniti couldn’t sell anything!). I look forward to my 50 mile one-way commute through DC rush hour traffic – crazy happy!

I've had my G35 sedan for 2 months and it's a fine ride. But you only learn things about a car you've drooled over for a year after you get it. Things I don't like: side pockets on doors are too deep and narrow, 2 glove boxes really too small to hold anything, auto seat adjuster poorly located. Steering wheel controls are difficult to use in the dark until you get used to them. Things I like: SPEED(Already got a ticket)Wow!, Fuel economy, 24.5mpg if you don't hammer on it, Great looks! Corners like it's on rails. PS, Don't get the sport suspension unless you're a road racer cause the standard suspension is plenty stiff.

Amazing amount of horsepower. Wonderful handling because of the weight balancing; handles standing water better than my 4 wheel drive. Car can handle tall people up to 6ft 5in; very unusual for a sports car. Back seat obviously small but useful, particularly the pull down feature that extends the trunk for longer items. You won't find a better performing car within $10K.

Had a Carrera 911 - too expensive to maintain - Looked at the MBZ but a dealer friend said they've been cost cutting to compete with BMW so they took away things like good brakes! Drove the G35 with nav, bought it on the spot. Had to pay full whack tho. Only drawbacks: Doors don't auto lock when you drive and no seat memory (a real bummer at the car wash) - The engine is awesome and drives fast. Handles very well at 1/2 a Porsche price. I'm happy.

For $35,000 there isnt a car that comes close. I looked at the BMW 330Xi first. It was $8,000 more and didnt have the power and some of the ammenities that the Infiniti had. You have to spend $50-$55k for a German vehicle that can compete with the G35. The Acura TL is nice but a front-wheel drive sedan with 270hp is something I would not drive. Test drove, after pulling out of the dealership the torque steer almost pulled the car into the left lane. Immediately went back to the dealer and gave back keys. Fine if you drive 55mph but if you are aggressive you do not want the TL.

I purchased my G35x about 3 months ago and am extremely happy with my purchase. Its incredibly fun, stylish, and I feel so in control on the road. My only issues with the car would be the gas mileage (especially now when prices are astronomically high). I average about 18-19 mpg everyday commute, and I hit about 24 mpg on my long road trip with no stops. I also find that the heated seat button is too close to the passenger/driver seats and sometimes accidentally turns on if you brush past it. The clock is kind of silly too, as its not lighted and very difficult to see the time at night. Other than those few improvements its an amazing vehicle!

A pleasure to drive. The handling is super. I just wish there were more windy/hilly roads in Indianapolis. The sport suspension package gives this car the extra handling ability and its power really makes a difference when needed. The styling is beautiful. None of the other luxury sedans have anything comparable. I test drove used (2 - 3 yrs) Mercedes 240, Lexus E300, Jaguar X-Type, and Volvo 50 series and the G35 was hands- down better.

This car gets an avarage of 20 miles to a gallon on gas. The car takes the bumbs as well as a Honda or Toyota or even an Linclon but not as well as a BMW or a Subaru. The Infiniti G35 is a winner and has the best features.

After a great experience w/my Mitsbubishi 3000GT-VR4 I was looking for a sporty performance car that was also luxury-minded and classy. I found it in the G35. (I loved the 350Z but it has NO trunk space - the G35 has the same engine but is much more practical.) While not as robust as my VR4, the G35 has lots of oomph, and amazingly handles just as well as the AWD VR4. I get looks and compliments everywhere I go. The G35 is a lot of car for the money, a tremendous value. If you want a fun- to-drive performance car well- appointed with luxury items and a classy demeanor, this is your only choice, unless you want to spend another ten grand.

For starters, what sold me the first time I saw the car was the bodystyle, and of course the extra space available for the back seat. The trunk space is great also. It's the kind of car that catches the human eye. Unlike the BMW that has become somewhat mainstream, this one seems to be in a class all of it's own. People just can't help but look when it drives by them.

Great G35. More car for the buck!

You know the SAAB TV Commercial where their vehicle "sticks" (graphically) to the road? Well, the G35 is THAT CAR! She holds a cloverleaf exit at 60 mph if you're so inclined and accelerates when and if you need her to, emulating some of the greatest vehicles on the road today! The BOSE sound system provides superior sound reproduction and she's got an ease of in-cab control!

Regardless of everything that you may read, you must read this. I am sooo frustrated w/ this car appropriate words can not even explain. My G35 coupe has a consecutive problem with stalling and not starting. For a car that has only 4000 miles on it, it has been to the dearlership for service atleast 6x's a month. I can't wait until I get out of this lease (the sooner the better). I would not recogmend this vehicle to anyone. The next time I want luxury and quality service I will go to BMW or LEXUS.

This is my 6 month review of this vehicle (I posted 1/23/04). I've driven 7300 miles and have not had any mechanical or build quality issues. I have had two planned services (3500 & 7500) and have been provided with complimentary loaner vehicles. On a 250 mile trip to Las Vegas, I got 25 mpg (and I was travelling between 80 and 85). The car runs smooth and quiet (I have not experienced any rattle or shakes that some have commented on). My Bose sound is great and my XM has worked flawlessly. I average 18 mpg in everyday commuter travelling. I enjoy this vehicle very much and I have not had any buyers remorse. This Infiniti product is a good choice.

I was looking for something as fun to drive as the BMW but without the hit or miss reliablity of the BMW. The Acura TL was too soft in the handling dept. The Acura TSX was too small and the dealerships refuse to bargain. The G35 has it all. It has the handling of the BMW, the space,power and reliability of the TL. Test drive the car and don't be shy to get on it. It can take it.

I love my 6-speed manual coupe!! It is so much fun to drive! The seats are great and cup you when you are taking sharp turns at high speeds. The ride is surprisingly smooth too. The short shifter six speed is nice, so much more fun than an automatic. My only complaint would be the seatbelts - they hit you at awkward position and I'm constantly adjusting the chest strap - but for this much fun, who cares?! I would definitely recommend this car to other car buyers. It's awesome!!!

Overall good car, but feels heavy, both in steering and in excelleration. It just doesn't feel like 280 hp. Looks great and gets a lot of attention. Overall comfortable ride for level of performance. VSC system kicks in a little too soon. Seat backs are way too hard for a luxury brand, and very tiring on long drives.

Plain and simple, there is no other status/luxury car in this price range that can beat the G35 in its overall combination of: horsepower, torque, braking ability, value, reliability, exterior styling, acceleration, handling, top end speed, rear wheel drive, roominess/legroom/headroom, trunk space, beautiful car logo and front grill. Infiniti has hit a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth with this awesome car. Get the 6 speed manual if you like watching the Daytona 500 or you can get the 5 speed automatic if you're lazy. Get the G35 in black with black leather interior and black tinted rear windows for a mother of a monster mean machine. Go buy it.

When I first was car shopping i was interested in but dissapointed by the Nissan Z. The G35 coupe made up for everything i didn't like about the Z incl. backseat, sunroof and importantly visibility. This car is fast, performs when you want it to and is stylish. I would recommend it to anyone one. I just hope it's ok in the snow since i'm in CT! Because of all the safety features in the car, i also had a very minor increase in insurance. Lastly, i recommend the body side molding to people, especially if you are paranoid like me about dings in the door. Even though i've had the car for 2 weeks, i love it!

I've always wanted a Supra since 1993. Well, not that it's gone, I was searching something to replace. BMW 3 nah. Overpriced w/ OK performancen and too many people have it. Audi TT. nah. Too small and bug-looking. RX-8. nah. Weird engine and weird backdoor. Nissan Z350. nah. No back seat. Now G35 (Skyline). Since the time I saw this car for the first time. I gotta say, I love almost everything about it. Awesome power, smooth ride, tight handling, & eye-turning design. What else can you say? I've done some modifications (clear corners, racing pedals... etc.) and it looks even better!!! I'm not depressed anymore about the discontinuation of Supra.

Live in MN and needing a 4wd/AWD sedan, I was limited to only a few choices: BMW, Audi (too pricey in AWD with a larger engine), and too boy- racer-ish Subaru & Mitsubishi.

Coming from a Volvo S60 I already miss a few items, and recommend them strongly for later G35x models: 6- spd manual, rear seats that fold (I could not place 2 large suitcase in trunk), more intuitive radio/climate controls, and an in-dash hands free phone.

I traded in my G35 Sedan for the Coupe, and have never looked back. Both cars need slight interior improvement (radio & A/C controls), but overall are extremely well built, reliable and fun to drive (the Coupe really excels here). It doesn't take much looking around to realize that both cars have no competition when it comes to value.

fun vehicle to drive. very responsive and handles like a dream. the driving experience is awesome. Only 2 main drawbacks: 1. location of the seat controls, it feels like you are sitting on a wallet and can get uncomfortable on longer drives. (when they fix this i will gladly pay to have the seat replaced). 2. gas mileage. Don't expect to get any better than 18 mpg of regular city/highway driving. even a little less if you really push the car. even with these 2 issues the car is nothing short of spectacular. i would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a performance sedan that is reliable and fun to drive.

There is no way to truely describe how great this car is. I am a very level headed person, but I just lose it everytime I get in and drive. It is my dream car. I looked at everything, I wanted something fast (giddy up!), fun, and sporty. I wanted luxury... but darn it I wanted value too! I looked at BMW, Lexus, the Crossfire, Mercedes... in the theme of fun I test drove an Audi TT. I started my hunt for a car over a year ago. I didn't want ANY regrets, and not a drop of buyer's remorse. There was no question in the end... this car has more of everything and the price is great. I am in heaven!!!

Purchasing the G35 coupe is one of the best decisions that I've made, thus far. It's an eye-turner, unlike many of the other cars in its class (i.e., everyone and their brother has owned a BMW 3 series at least once in their life). The best thing about it is that it's reliably made, so that you don't have to deal with the nickel and dime problems that so many of my peers face with their BMW 3 series, Audi A4's, etc.

If your first priority is power and acceleration and you can't afford a Porsche, this is the car for you. I just love the confidence feeling driving this car next to most cars on the street knowing that you can smoke them in a heart beat. Corners handling is 8-9/10 or may be I just push too much. Not as quite as a Lexus, not as reputable as a BMW and has less horsepower than the new Acura, but sure as hell faster than all of those. The 52-48 distribution is not a myth, I drove this car 2 days in an Ice storm and my main concern was avoiding the disabled front wheel cars on the road. I think Infiniti did a great job, below are some suggestions to improve.

The interior is luxurious and the 6-speed makes it a missle on wheels. It's a great looking design that will age well and its drivetrain makes it the best in its class. It was Car and Driver's 2003 Car of the Year for a reason--nothing else in this price range comes close. Auf Wiedersehen, BMW!

I loved the styling of this car as soon as it was released and then I drove it and realized that the G coupe may be the best combination of sport and comfort and real world usefulness on the market today. The back seat fits my 1 year old's carseat; the trunk has enough room for my golf clubs; the interior amenities are excellent; and the power is abundant. I have also been very impressed with the manu-matic feature; this is the first automatic I have ever owned and I don't feel like I'm missing a thing. No car (in this price range) can put a bigger smile on your face when you fire up this engine. I highly recommend this car.

Since I used Edmunds to help make a buing decision I wanted to make a contribution. Once the dealership experience was completed (Denver badly needs a second Infiniti dealership; they are so obnoxious at the current one) the vehicle does rock. Most of my driving is on the highway and I am getting 21+ mpg. The 5 speed option on the mountain roads is exhilirating and handling is incredible. I went with the Sirius satellite radio and cannot imagine ever listening to commercial radio again. Only minor complaint which is frequent here are the cupholders are awkward although I cannot figure out a better location. After 11 years of SUVs I am in car heaven.

I have only had my car for 3 months but it has preformed very well so far and I expect it to continue. I have had no problems to date. The only negative thing I can say is that the passenger seat back rattles in certain positions with no one sitting in it. The rattle can be eliminated by changing position. The mileage for a 1000 mile trip was 25.5 mpg with just 1500 miles on the odometer.

I did a lot of research b/f choosing the G35. I believe for the money and the class it is in, it is the best. The overall design of the car is very nice. The interior could have been done better. Really the only complaint I have w/ the interior is that it scratches easily, other than that I like it. The performance of the car is outstanding. I easily make 35mph curves at 60-70 and have done higher. It corners great. The engine itself seems good also. It seems to be running better now w/about 10000 miles on it. The miles per gallon have been slowly increasing also. Overall this is a great car that I enjoy immensely.

Do you enjoy driving hard, not just riding along in comfort? If yes, the G35 is for you. I have 34,000 miles on my 2003 G35, I have pushed it and pushed harder, it still satisfies. Failed Gas tank sending unit and failed airbag sensor are my only gripes so far. Dragstrip times better than Mustang GT's, road course times up there with All Wheel Drive cars, this car will do it all and come back on Monday to take the kids to school and go to work. After work you can destress with the help of 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears (80 mph in <8 seconds). Just go drive it, but drive it hard.

Bought one for my wife in Dec. She was driving a 1999 Audi A4 AWD 2.6! This car blows it away (IMHO). More fun to drive, much quicker and goes like He** in the snow. We live in northern CT and had plently of snow this year and it performed flawlessly. As good or better than the A4. I avoided driving the A4 as it felt slugglish, but I admit to now taking her car every chance I get. For the price this car is really hard to beat. I test drove all the other AWD in this class and this was by far the best.

I've only owned the car for just over a month, but couldn't be happier. I got the all-wheel drive. I took it out one night on a winding back road in a heavy thunderstorm and put it through the paces. It corners like it's on rails. No looseness in the rear whatsoever. Impressive performance.

For the money, it's an o.k. car but I suggest looking at other options(3 series BMW, Audi A4, Acura TL) before purchasing. My previous car was a 3 series and the fit, finish and overall quality of the 3 exceeds the Infiniti. I don't dislike the car, but I don't love it either - it's just average.

I waited for years to replace my Alfas 164. I wanted a well equiped car, six cylinder and manual tranny. The germans are way overpriced. Then Infiniti came up with the G35. Problem solved. The ideal sports car for a driver that wants a sedan. Nothing more, nothing less. It is not a luxury car, for that, go to Lexus.

I went into the dealership because I was bored and drove off in a new car. It didn't really have much to do with the dealership, more because I finally drove it. I've had the G35 now for almost 3 months and still turn around for one last look every time I park it. The G35 is fast, quick, and agile. The quickness may not be "right off the line" but as soon as you hit 3,000 RPMs +, hang on. The fuel economy is good as long as you keep it an Automatic mode. As soon as you switch it over to Triptronic, it's less efficient...but that's driver dependent. I love this thing!!

I purchased the G35 sedan with the premium sports package (upgraded brakes, bose sound system, rear spoiler, etc.) in May. This car is FUN to drive and handles like a dream. Trottle response and sport shifting is remarkable for an automatic. After testing several competing models, the G35 is the quickest and has the tightest suspension. More amenities would make this car much more attractive to "average buyer". Who is going to push a family sedan to 130mph on a consistent basis? The G35 needs more luxury items to match the TL and Saab 9 to balance out its superior performance.

A real sports car. Although slightly less sexy exterior than the 35 Coupe, once you get inside, you'd never know the difference. Handles, excellerates and corners like a pro. I find the breaks smooth and sure, rarely skidding even on fast de-celeration. Go for the black leather interior and titanium dash - its worth the extra few $$.

After owing BMW’s since 1987, this car turned my head with the combination of safety and performance features at a reasonable price. The amenities (sun roof, Bose Stereo, etc.) only add to the overall value you get for your dollar. On the performance side, the power curve is smooth throughout all ranges and when needed, has the high end power to plant you firmly in your seat. I would suggest this car to anyone who is looking for performance, comfort, and style at a reasonable price.

After too many years of conservative sweating, my wife and I decided to have a little fun with a car. The G35 coupe appealed and now it's her car. I'm finding too many excuses to drive it because...it's fun! Not as fast as my Ultra-fast bike of yore, a lttle to small for a 6'-4" guy and sucks a little to much gas, but what does an engineer know. Best "tweener" I could imagine for my wife and I. Everyone hit most of the Hi/Low points head on. Verdict - Great Time and Value.

It'a all about the ride

I loved this car the moment I sat in it. 3 months after getting the car I took a 2800 mile road trip from Chicago to Yellowstone and back in 4 days. Set the cruise at 80 and car acts like it is parked on the side of the road. Through the mountains it was glued to the road even at twice the posted limit. I can drive this car for hours without fatigue. Excellent power at “real word” revs. Great value for the money compared to BMW or Lexus

Wish it were more like my '90 ZX

Overall the car is good. Not as good as my Nissan 1990 ZX was when I bought it new. The seats are very uncomfortable. Also, not as much shoulder and hip room as the old Z. The suspension is good but not as compliant on rough surfaces as the '90 Z ... has some wheel hop. Road noise is high. Wind noise is high. Has a few rattles and squeaks. The Z was rattle free for 7 years. Don't think of it as a luxury car ... it's a sporty car. Cerritos Infiniti has been a great dealer.

Owned BMWs for 20 years;5 and 3 series. The G35 beats them all the way! Engine is quick and responsive. Got the Nav and has great features. Put in a phone # for a hotel and the directions were there! Had a problem with the keyless system. Stop working when sat in the sun and got over 90 degrees, then would work when it cooled down? Dealer couldn't duplicate at first, finally they were able and replaced the receiver unit. Now waiting for a hot spell to see if it is fixed? The Bose stereo has brought me back to music. Unbelievable. BUY AT COSTA MESA INFINITI!! They are the best, ask for Patrick.

As soon as I saw the car I knew I wanted it. I loved the look of the 350Z but needed a backseat. The G35 gives me a nice look with a decent- sized interior. The car has plenty of power. I got the automatic, for convenience, and now wish I'd chosen the manual. The car lags a little when you "romp" on the gas, as it down-shifts. The steering responds nicely, but there's a fair amount of body roll when turning with speed. The interior is OK. I find the seats very comfortable.

It’s a fun, powerful car that handles well. But there are many little things that add up, making it just an OK car overall. No memory in the seats, poor interior fit and finish, very soft paint (every tiny pebble chips paint). After a year there are more interior rattles than the local dealership can address.

Awesome Auto!

Don't look at the 350Z, get this instead. If you don't like people looking at you and your car, then don't buy this one. Everytime I drive it, I get a smile on my face.

This car is a great value. It provides wonderful handling, great power, excellent appearance and decnt gas mileage. I have previously owned several Lexus, a MBZ SLK model and this car is far superior to the Mercedes and cheaper as well. It is not quite as quiet as the Lexus but it is much more fun to drive and is definitely a "drivers'" car. I believe itis the best value on the road, far better than the Lexus ES 330 or the Acura TL.

The Infiniti G35 Sports Coupe is just a blast to drive! And it's fast too! It may be the greatest sports coupe ever made, and it's definitely the best sports coupe out there today. This car is definitely a "guy" car that gets so many looks and compliments! A brawny 280 hp engine, sleek and sporty design, and Infiniti quality and customer service are all bundled in a mid $30K package, which is about $7K less than a BMW 330ci. For the price, the Infiniti G35 Sports Coupe is quite a steal - better get yours today. It is the best car I have ever owned.

This car is a kick and a half to drive! Drives better than the A4 I used to have and is almost $10K less. I bought the X AWD version since I did not like the reliability in snow with RWD. Acceleration at 55MPH+ is somewhat sluggish, so I throw it into 3rd using the tiptronic shifter and then it GOES! Just a few very small imporvements and this car would be absolutely perfect!

I traded in a '99 BMW 540i and I'll admit I had reservations. After driving my G35x for a few weeks I don't miss the Bimmer at all. The G35 handles and performs beautifully, although I have noticed a bit of torque steer when the AWD kicks in on a slippery corner (I wouldn't normally accerate hard when taking a sharp corner in the rain, but wanted to see how the car would handle) It's roomy and comfortable inside I do miss the ride of the 540i/perf pkg, but won't miss staring at it in the driveway when the snow arrives. If you like a drivers car but don't want to pay (for the car or service) this is the car for you.

I traded a '01 BWM 330 for the G35 after having to take the BMW to the dealership quarterly for various problems. The interior of the G35 is somewhat cheap. Additionally, I had an interior rattle on delivery that took three trips to the dealership for service to settle. The exterior of the G35 coupe is beautiful. I have had multiple compliments on the car (silver w/18" wheels)at the gas station, grocery store, etc. I must admit I loved my BWM but was disappointed with it...in fact...the G35 came out the year I bought the BMW...but I wanted to wait until the bugs were worked out the system. So far...wish I had bought the G35 in the first place!

The 2004 Infiniti G35 is a remarkable car. I tested out the G35, 330i, A4, and TL and this vehicle was so much better. It has more power and the most stylish exterior and interior. The cabin is very quiet and smooth and the G35 can handle all the twists and turns. The AWD is very well and it handled very well in snow and rain and on dry bumpy surfaces. It's definetly the best Infiniti to date and the best in its class.

I hope they implement this AWD in the larger vehicles in the future. Tranny slips a little in auto-mode on low gears. Engine is a little on the noisy side. No power outlet in back seat area for kids to plugs games into. Power seats need to have a designated switch for "up" & "down" only. Ergonomically and awakard difficulty in closing trunk. Handle on the inside right. Most people have their keys in their right hand and would be pulling down with their left, if they could. But one still needs two hands to close it. Too much feel of road bumps.

Bought this car in the winter. We had a lot of snow, and this car was fantastic. 'snow mode' is a nice feature. Great car in bad weather. On dry pavement, turn off the 'vdc' and slam the accelerator at corners and you are in for a ride. I use to have a 3 series BMW. This car outperforms it and is about 10k less than a 330 with all wheel drive. Great value. I wish I didn't need four doors or I would have gotten the coupe with more horses.

Beautiful,fast,quiet,comfortable and inexpensive compared to the BMW, Lexus, or Mercedes. This car is an opportunity to have luxury at a reasonable price.

I love my G35 coupe. The only problems I am having is the tire pressure light coming on....this is very annoying and has happend 3 times already. Glendale Infiniti sucks dont ever go there! they are rude and don't care about you...also my brakes are very very sqeaky.

The car peforms well and is fun to drive Rear wheel drive gives the car a seat of the pants feel so you feel one with the car.I would like to see a manual oil presser gage with this car not just a light.Maybe manual volt meter also.The car is guite but still has a good engine sound to let you know what your are driving,Best Buy for the MONEY. Another words if you want to go faster you going to have to Pay more.Great car though.

Excellent Car

Amazing car. BMW and Mercedes now have some stiff competition from Infiniti. For the money you can't find a better car.

Awesome!

LOOKS, PERFORMANCE, LUXURY AND FOR WAHT A PRICE...WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT. I MYSELF AM A MUSCLE CAR GURU, BUT WHEN I DROVE THIS CAR, MAN WAS I PLEASED WITH THE POWER IT GAVE OFF. I LOVE ITS EXTERIOR DESIGN AND THE INTERIOR IS JUST SPECTACULAR. I AM NOT EASILY IMPRESSED (ESPECIALLY WITH IMPORTS), BUT THIS CAR REALLY BLEW ME AWAY.

Nice Design - Lacks Body Integrity

G35 Coupe is a fast car, handles well and has excellent brakes. But, the body integrity has alot to be desired. The car has a number of rattles - dealers have been unable to fix the problems even with Japanese technicians. This is unexcusable in this price range. My prior Lexus did not have one rattle after 76K miles.

G35..it's no BMW

I had my previous car for 10 years, so I took my time before investing in my next one. After investigating several makes/models, I narrowed my search to Audi, BMW, and the Infiniti G35. While all three score high points in styling, the G35 quickly left the others in the dust...literally. Don't let the luxurious styling fool you, the G35 is unequivocally a sports car. If you're looking for a smooth ride for gramma and grandpa, look somewhere else (Lexus?). If you desire exhilaration when you get behind the wheel, save some time and go to your Infiniti dealer. If you want an incredible car and not worry about parking next to ten just like it, buy the G35.

Best car ever??

Of all the cars in this segment, the G35 coupe is the best of the best. Styling, performance, handling, this car has it all. It can corner with the vette, has the styling of a ferrari, and the power of a porsche. All this for 35K?? BARGAIN!!

IT'S A BLAST !!!!

Infinti has finally hit the Jackpot with this new G35 coupe. It has beauty and brawn..... The acceleration and handling is fantastic and the look of the car just sitting still, looks like it'ready to tear up the road. I couldn't have picked a better car for the mid $30k price range.

Love this car
