Purchased used and its has been the perfect blend of reliability, performance, handling and comfort in one package. The Bose stereo and leather seating will please the senses on long hauls, however the smoothness of whacking the shifter through the gears at a rapid pace as the car builds a momentum only distinguished as a swelling sensation, is truly exhilarating. It’s not going to win any MPG awards, but the Smiles Per Gallon (SPG) will be hard to beat. Reliability: No issues thus far Performance: Naturally aspirated 300+ HP with 6sp manual transmission Handling/Comfort: Very well-mannered and but happy to drift with traction control off. Very comfortable and welcoming. Pros: Performance, 6sp manual transmission, handling and appearance Cons: Steering tends to feel a bit heavy for my taste under hard turning, Cup holder in-front of the shifter, Lack of USB inputs (resolved with USB2 GROM for both USB/Bluetooth support)

Love my G35!

I bought a used 2007 G35x w/ 120k on the odometer. I was looking for a used Altima or Maxima, but came across the Infiniti and was sold the moment I stepped on the gas. Reading the reviews put me over the edge. I've now had it a year and a half, and have 150k on the odo. No maintenance issues, but gas is a bit of an expense. I average 19-20mpgs combined and pumping premium fuel sucks. Comfortable on long rides, and I'm tall and have back issues. Getting out is a little awkward b/c it sits so low.

Fun to drive, not an everyday driver

Where to start? We bought the 2007 G35x when it first came out. A bit of a risk for a significant G model generation change, but, it proved to be rewarding. The 300+ hp will leave most cars gasping when you want to hit the accelerator. The 5-spd sport stick is absolutely the sweet spot on a car this powerful (remember, the faster the track car, the LESS gears they require). The newer 7 speeds are a gimmick. The in-dash compact flash card (only year provided) is awesome (all of my music is on it and yes I download it all). I am pretty tough on a car and this G35x has held up. I do my own maintenance and it has been minimal. Oil changes, tire rotations, and brakes is about it. With nearly 100k miles on it, it has served me well. So well, that I simply plan on keeping it even though I can afford a new car. But why? This thing drives as good as anything out there. The only issue I have had are two: 1. This car likes to drink fuel. Despite the 25mpg avg, I would say I get closer to 19mpg. 2. Although the tires have worn remarkably well for an AWD vehicle (still on the 2nd set), my right front wheel shows signs of inside tire cupping (and subsequent road noise). I plan to put another set of tires on it and get the front end checked out; hopefully that takes care of that problem. Otherwise, I love the car. The only reason for considering a new car is for some of the new technology that is out there such as blind spot monitoring and the 360 degree vision view (the 4 cameras). Otherwise, I'm good. Nissan's VQ engine won Ward's Automotive Award for about 10 years straight and this engine has performed flawlessly. I suspect I'll need to change plugs soon, but, for now, it still runs like new (10 years later). For what it's worth, I am a Toyota man and have had Toyota trucks most of my life as well. You can't go wrong with the Toyota/Lexus line either (although they have had some lemons like the IS250 direct port injection issue). Infiniti/Nissan did a nice job with this car and I think the 2007 was the best year for reliability when you consider the transmission in this car (I'd want nothing more than 5 gears mated to this engine). By the way, I drive almost exclusively in tiptronic (sport shift) mode and have not had any issues (I don't change trans fluids either; that's usually when trouble starts).

Premium Gas cost has become a big negative!

Pro's: driver & front passenger comfort, performance, styling, technology package, engine, transmission, air conditioning have been very reliable, backup camera, excellent control on rainy wet roads. Cons: trunk design and space, rear seat room and comfort, under sized brakes for performance capability of car, premium gas which is now a $.70 - $.90 penalty per gallon or added $15.00 cost per fill up, no USB PORTS in car, radio selection and programming is difficult, GPS upgrades unrealistically expensive, no one at any dealer has ever been able to explain how to use the SD media chip with the hard drive, front wheel bearings have failed along with both front left and right axle joint boots, have had electrical problems with right front lighting exceeding $1,200.00. Also have experienced increased road noise after 75,000 miles.

I have owned my G35 for 7 years now but am getting the itch so before I bid it farewell I owe it to Infinity to say thanks. This has been the best car I have ever owned. Fast, nimble, firm but not a teeth shaker and yet with a backseat that's sufficient for our three kids. Sport sedan label fits this one perfectly The only repair we've had to make was an A/C compressor that went out a few months ago. I had my ECM flashed early on and that took care of the touchy throttle response. I really think my '07 looked better than the later models. Now the M50 is coming out but that pricetag will be too high for me. The G35 was the perfect blend of performance, comfort, and value.

This car's dashboard is cracking and the edges are warping which I can only imagine is because of the poor quality materials used to put it together. The handles and steering wheel buttons are all peeling, this is very disappointing I would have imagined a well-maintained "luxury" vehicle would have lasted. Would have spend my money elsewhere! Infiniti consumer affairs is a joke and offer no resolution.

Great car. Had a few warranty repairs

First off I must say I came up from a 1999 Pontiac Grand AM to this amazing 2007 G35 S. Simply put, the car is fast! The responsiveness of this vehicle is amazing. The active steer assist makes maneuvering at high speeds much easier although it can be a tad bit artificial. Steering at lower speeds give great feedback and feel. The sport package make ride comfort a bit hard and tight, but it's way better than a 99 Pontiac Grand AM lol! The exterior styling is sleek and smooth, plus the Bose sound system is crystal clear. I average 22 mpg on a daily basis and I'm driving about 55-60 mph average! Overall you get performance, luxury, and value!

I have only owned this car for a few days. I came across a used, 2007, with 35k miles. All I can say is this is the best car I have ever owned...Great looks, insanely fast, built like a tank and handles like a race car. Driving at night I feel like I'm flying a plane - the interior lighting is great. This car is rock solid and feels like it's on rails. I'm still getting used to all of the techno gear and will report back.

My wife had great success with an older I30 so I decided to try the G35S. Not disappaointed at all! The car is a blast to drive and I look forward to it everytime I climb in. Compared this to the BMW 535 and although the BMW felt a little better when pushing towards the limits, the extra $20k was too hard to ignore. Also compared the Acura TL but the front wheel drive was a deal killer not to mention the TL did not have the zip or handling. The G did gobble up the OEM tires but that was thanks to my right foot. I enjoyed every bit of it too!

I really dont understand some of you peoples gripes about this car. Tires and brakes worn out in less than a yr? Averaging 14mpg? Well how about you slow it down. Thats whats you can expect when your flooring it every time your behind the wheel. Even one person that complained about everything in regards to how the car looked inside. Well then why did you buy it. The appearance didnt change after you made your purchase did it? Quality on this car is top notch, its a nissan made vehicle of course. The ride feels extremely stable in all maneuvers. Yeah the average of about 18 to 20 mpg is a bit on the low side but when your pushing out 306hp what do you expect?

I got this car on a sat in Jan in place of my 2000 Nissan maxima, 4 days later a big storm hit while I was at work, when I got off a pile of snow was in front of my car from the snow plow, in my old car I would have to dig out first, but in this I just pressed snow mode and drove right through it like it was nothing then got up the hill again old car would have struggled, on the back road that I have to use to get to work a small tree was down drove over it slowly, felt like a speed bump, then a neighborhood that was unplowed I drove in it like it was nothing, my first AWD car and I love it, the main reason for getting this car other then it has the look and feel like its cousin Nissan

Noisy vehicle for both tires and engine versus BMW smooth competitors. Very powerful and fast, and strong value for the money. Big tradeoffs of comfort versus noise - also expensive to fuel based on MPG + requirement of premium fuel. Interior build had issues, well known threads on interior door pull "peel" issues for finish that Infiniti dealer & corporate customer service refused to cover during warrenty period. Leather also wore poorly. Came in a fan to this vehicle, but it's all power over comfort / quality. Trunk, compartments, and passenger area all feel cramped for space. Very rough ride on sport model

I've been living with my 2007 G35 Sport sedan for several years and never tire of it. It's built like a rock and it's fast, capable, and just plain fun. The shift algorithm has figured out my driving style, and now does it all by itself in DS mode. It's the kind of car that you are happy to see every morning, and that you occasionally look back at just to enjoy how good it looks. Tires are always an issue with cars like this. I replaced the OEM Potenzas (which lasted 12000 miles) with Michelin Pilot Sport AS+ 235/45R18 fronts, 245/45R18 rears. Vastly improved ride, great handling, better wet performance and a 45000 mile tread wear warranty. I wouldn't give up this car for anything.

Really there isn't too much to complain about this vehicle. Absolutely bulletproof reliability. Peppy motor combined with an above class grade interior. The wood is beautiful. The gauges and LED accent lights reflect a designer's touch. The car truly needs one more gear though which I believe Infiniti subtlety acknowledged by engaging the transmission in the 08 model. I've driven both cars and prefer the 08 for this change alone. Aside from the mileage, which is frankly poor (I average 18mpg), and the need for an extra gear, the engine does have to rev to make you feel like you are driving a true sport sedan. Furthermore, the trunk space is limited by the CD changer. In sum, super car.

Bought my '07 G35 w/17,000 miles in June 2010 and after MONTHS of researching, reading and test-driving other vehicles. Simply put: I'm putting miles on the car JUST BECAUSE I CAN'T STOP DRIVING IT! I'll find any excuse to jump on and drive it. Superior handling, A MONSTER torque, quality and clean interior, nice leather, excellent dashboard displays, classy style, great exterior, upscale front face, fun, fun, fun to drive! The engine needs a soft right foot or you'll spin the rear wheels. AC is gelid cold, xenon headlights gives you clean vision, power seat and driving wheel gives you endless positions, max support from driver seat. Great, great car.

This is a comfortable, powerful sedan. It is great in all driving conditions. Unbelievable Bose stereo system with super base response. Great exhaust note. Super fun to drive. Great air conditioning system with dual zone. Great heated seats. Nice layout, comfortable seats. The entire control panel moves with the steering wheel adjustment - cool! Two negatives would be the poor mpg as already mentioned and less than stellar brake and tire life. Also the rubberized paint on the interior arm rests tends to scratch a bit. Could also use a bit more interior storage cubbyholes. Exterior paint is a bit soft. Car also requires Premium Gas so get ready to pay up for the privilege of driving this car.

Just put new ones on 3 days after buying it and now I need them again : ( people love my car and so do I until I see the out dated interior. I don't like the brushed nickle and those horrible orange lights the g35 I way better looking from the outside than the inside. My leather seats don't look good either . I love driving my car but wish I would have bought the Lexus is250 more updated and better gas mileage and tire wear. I see why people own the g for about a year or two and trade it in : ( oh and my speakers blew out too in the front $200 to replace

Upgraded from an old Acura CL recently and purchased a used 07 G35 Sport 6MT. The power of the engine and RWD really make a difference. I am never going back to FWD. Although I originally was shopping for a coupe, I really like the sedan better. Performance and handling are great and still have room for the kids in the back. Lots of space and high end materials inside. Excellent Bose stereo. The nav works great too.

G35x fully loaded w/ 22.5k miles. Overall I'm very happy with my 07 G35x. However after 7k miles and again at 12k miles the rotors warped and had to be resurfaced. At 21k rear brakes were replaced. This is unacceptable for a car that has such low miles. Also the sunroof had to be completely replaced after it froze-up for no reason. The service experience has been average, greasy finger prints on headliner after being returned from sunroof install, broken license plate frame and other annoyances. On the up side the G is fun to drive and I like all bells and whistles. Can't complain about the pricing either. All that said, I would buy another Infiniti.

I love this car after driving the G35x sedan (model is AWD). With 309 HP generated from a 3.5 ltr V6, it has plenty of pickup and handling. Acceleration is smooth and powerful when you need it. Steering feels tight without feeling heavy. It's a very easy car to drive. Outside, it's got a very sporty look. Clean lines make this a very attractive car. Inside its all luxury considering the price. The car looks expensive, but compared to its competitors, it's a real bargain. I highly suggest a look if you are in the market for a sports sedan (oh and by the way, it's been named top sports sedan 4 years in a row by a national rating agency). Very pleased with it (this is my second Infiniti).

You can't turn down a car that will put out 300+ HP, be as smooth as this one, accelerate like this one does, or look like this one does all under 40k. You just can't go wrong with this car. The gas mileage stinks, but gas mileage on most cars this fast is not very good. I drive this car pretty hard and I get about 18 mpg. If you drive it normally, you'll get more. I have about 25k on the car and just about now will need tires and brakes, so I'm not sure about past reviewers saying they've had to do it with so much less mileage. The and exterior and interior styling of this car are exceptional! The Bose System is phenomenal! I would recommend this car to anyone who can afford a sports car!

The G35 coupe is a very exciting drive, especially when using the tiptronic; however, the costs of maintenance are high. Fuel efficiency is low, tire efficiency is very low requiring a new set every 13,000 - 18,000 miles due to offset wheel size, break efficiency is low - again due to the offset wheel size. I've had my '07 for a little over a year and I've had the A/C motor replaced 3 times (Phoenix resident), the driver-side window motor replaced, the shocks replaced, and many dealer problems. I love the car overall, just a bit expensive for upkeep. I attribute most of the problems I've had to the dealership... absolute nightmare that will prevent me from buying another Infiniti.

I bought the car from Carmax with 12000 miles. Needless to say, I have been impressed. It is fast and handles great. The navigation is the best around and the technology package is outstanding and the backup camera is a nice feature (so my wife says). Gas mileage is about 20 avg, with mixed highway/city driving. The only complaint is the back seat is a little cramped for my oldest daughter, but she manages. Infinity puts Bridgestone Potenza from the factory and they stink. I barely got 20K miles. The staggered set up is new to me, but this a sports/performance car. I highly recommend this car to anyone. It is my wife's daily driver and highly reliable and safe!!!

Friend of mine called who works at a dealership, the car belonged to his wife's cousin who returned it off of lease, wow was I blown away by the quality of this car. Yes it took me about a week of getting whiplash to adjust to the acceleration. Powerful car, handles well in all types of weather, I have the AWD X version and it went thru the snow better than my 4WD did. Sound system is incredible. Superb breaking and cornering. When U want speed it rocks, when you're cruising it's very smooth.

Wonderful car to drive. The throttle is twitchy until you get used to it which takes about a week. It's sort of funny watching someone drive it who is not used to it. Everyone's head bounces off the headrests (which are well padded). I understand they modified the throttle response in the later models which is unfortunate. The car has performed flawlessly but be prepared to replace the brake pads every 15,000 miles and the rotors will need to be machined each time. $$$$

This car is a blast to drive and great as a daily commuter as well. Have logged 27K miles and not a single problem thus far. The reliability has been a huge factor. Plenty of room to schlep one or two of the kids around town when needed. Highly recommend this vehicle.

Push it and it drives like a superb handling muscle car. Cruise and it is smooth luxury!. Tried Lexus, BMW and Mercedes. If you get this car fully loaded with the Tech pkg and it's the perfect blend of them all. I am beyond happy with this car. Gas mileage is a drawback but it has a long list of positive trade offs. Manual Clutch takes some getting used to but is extreme fun once you master it.

I dropped my wife off at a wedding, after driving her & 2 friends to the church. There was 4-5 inches of snow already. Cars slipping all over. Not enough time to plow the roads yet. The G35x was AWESOME. Even with wider tires, the g35x's awd and the stability control literally disconnected me from the snowy road. I have a 2000 subaru, and the AWD on that is great. But this car would have blown it away. The G35x is an incredibly competent vehicle. Hands down. It will cruise in great luxury, and will blast ahead of traffic when needed. For sure there are cars that will beat every individual aspect of this car, but as a package, it is impressive as all get out!

I've researched a lot of cars and found this to be the best bang for my buck. It is a true sports car, yet a gentleman's car as well. Highway driving is very comfortable. It handles extremely well in autoCross races also, easily beating cars such as the Porche Boxter. My only regret is not buying sooner.

This is my second G35X. I loved the first (2004). This car has been even better. I am actually getting better mileage as well. The original Goodyear tires were poor, but a step up from the previous car's horrible original tires. I replaced them with Hankook tires after 29000 miles. No complaints there. I am still on my original brake pads after 41000 miles. I can't believe it, but I have them checked, and they are fine. It might be due to my use of the autostick . This car is a lease, but I will likely purchase it at the end of the lease. I drove the 2009 with the 7 speed auto and 328 horsepower. There was no real difference. The Bose premium "studio on wheels" sounds great.

Very Satisfied

This is a beautiful and powerful (306 horsepower) car. However, it is a sport edition which means different sized tires. This is a nightmare. Not only are the tires expensive, but I am on my third (yes, I said third set) and I only have 40K on the car. Also, the gas mileage is horrible. It averages about 14-16mpg. Terrible!

This car is very fast and it looks great in black. The sports seats are very tight. I'm waist size 32. This car can be much more efficient if the top gear is much taller. Unless you're living in a very hilly city, there is no reason to have the RPM above 3K at 70 mph. It feels very wasteful, and it is very wasteful. Another major problem are the tires. The front tires start to feather out and make a lot of noise at around 10K. I had to replace them even though they still have a lot of tread.

I have 26,000 miles on my G35 and need to put the third set of tires on the rear. I have been told that because of the difference in the tire size (front & rear) that rear tires seldom last for more than 10,000 - 12,000 miles. Wish someone had told me this prior to purchasing! Definitely will NOT purchase another G35.

This car is beautiful to look at but not beautiful to drive! Overall it is a fun car with very high performance limits. However it has a slightly unsophisticated feel to it - in the clutch and suspension feel and the acceleration is not linear. The brakes are awesome. The rear axle tends to hop with wheel spin which is a letdown. If you don't spin the tires acceleration is top notch. Anything above 8/10s level the car feels flawless. It is in normal day to day driving, particularly the daily work slog, that it can be tedious to drive. Again, for the money this car in pretty much in it's own league. Just be prepared for a rough around the edges experience.

Drove Saabs for 20+ years and the G35 is significantly better in all respects. Haven't had it back to dealer for anything but scheduled maintenance in 1-1/2 years - 30,000 miles. Can easily drive 750+ miles per day without getting tired. Best quality new car I've owned in 45+ years of new car ownership.

This is one fun car to drive! Purchased 3/07 and we're now up to 31K miles. Sport tires lasted til 27.5K. Could have been better but they are sticky suckers. I buy cars looking at engine performance 1st and value for the buck 2nd. I don't think I could have done better. This engine has the power to make me smile ear to ear everyday. I love blowing by other cars and looking in the mirror. Only guy that had the engine to stay with me was in an Audi S4. Handling is great. Interior is excellent. Nav useful. Sound system makes my guts thump. The kids and the wife like it too but have to be good when they're in the car.

I have been very pleased with the reliability and performance of the car. I have had zero problems with the vehicle and have not had to return to the dealer for any issues (have performed all the maintenance myself). Acceleration and braking are all excellent. The sport suspension and tires provide excellent handling without compromising comfort too much. Interior is very quiet at speed, The exhaust note is good without being too loud. Stereo has good clarity and volume although not tremendous base. I have never averaged under 20 mpg in everyday driving and have gotten 27 mpg on all interstate driving. The trunk is smallish and the interior does not have a lot of storage. Tires wear quickly.

Horrified by the poor tire wear! At 19,000 miles, my tires were completely bald. Infiniti says they normally replace them around 12-15K! Now I am at 24K, and the front insides are torn up and need to be replaced. That's right... only 5,000 miles on the tires. Said it was the alignment. I will be looking to trade this car in within the year. I can't afford to replaces tires twice a year, especially at the price our tires are!

Just having sold my G35 sport finds me missing this car, not at all. I truly believed this was a fantastic built and designed sports sedan. Having downscaled due to $ concerns, I don't really miss it especially when it rains, for (2) reasons. The HP is enormous and fast acceleration on a rain slick surface spins you out and secondly, after you park in your garage, notice all the water falling from the wheel well and gathering around each wheel. If you have a flat surfaced garage, expect to mop up 8 towels worth of water off the floor. Apparently, the trim panels collect the road splash and slow drip when parked. Add to that a look-alike Nissan styling for $10k less.

Very enjoyable

Coming up on first year anniversary. Have had none, zero, zip problems with this wonderful car. Which, to me, is pretty amazing. The voice-activated navigation system is terrific, though this is my first exposure to a navigation system, so I have nothing to compare it against. Early in my ownership (first 60days) I had occasion to use the four wheel drive during an ice/sleet/snow storm. It was a little nerve-wracking because I had just shelled out for the car and I would have rather been in my 14 year old suv but it handled as advertised and I was sold. Also, when you want to blow past traffic, the 306 hp (which I've never had before) is impressive.

After owning this car for 11 months, every time I get in it I'm reminded that this car is amazing. The handling is superb, the exterior of the lines gives it that sexy look, the interior is purely impressive. I have three complaints, the trunk is pretty small, I'm the only driver but when traveling one large suitcase and duffel bag and your packed. Gas mileage is definitely not impressive and I think it should have at least been an option to have integrated driving lights in the bottom grille. Other than those three I would buy this car all over again!

Have had G since 10/07, a lot of little problems and some not so little. Speaker makes a "pop" noise when car engine turned on from battery on position; sunroof wouldn't stay closed, needed to have motor replaced; one of my windows wound not roll up via "one touch". Now the throttle when first started in the morning sounds as if car is going to die out. Apparently Infiniti has no fix for this yet, but there's a bulletin out on it. I also have performance tires & they're wearing out way to quick. Great looking & performing car but come close to warranty - trade in likely considered.

Excellent acceleration and handling. I have owned a BMW 328i and the G35x handles much better. The AWD is not only helpful in snow/icy conditions,but it helps the automobiles handling altogether. Accident avoidance or just exciting aversive driving is a strong attribute. Slam on the breaks and you will not only achieve a sporty stop but the pre-crash seatbelts spring into action pulling you firmly into the seat. My G35x is a little over a year old and I have not experienced a single problem!

An overall decent car but not without faults. A bit too eager to jump/speed which is a bit awkward because of the not so smooth transmission. Fuel economy is horrible and Infinity needs to work on this. The upgraded stereo could be better. The nav system is probably the best and it is very simple to use. The sitting is quite comfortable but the trunk has a small opening. Overall it is an enjoyable car to drive, yet it does leave something to be desired if you compared to a Mercedes or a BMW

Fun to drive, smooth ride, well built, reliable, comfortable, solid drive in various road & weather conditions. Beautiful car inside & out. Opt for the wood trim interior. Gas mileage not great but I knew this before I bought. Previously drove an SUV/4WD and the G35x drives comparable in the snow (as long as not deep snow because G35x is low to the ground). Bose speakers great with radio but sound quality decreases when listening to XM. Changed battery of key fob once but I was told this is because I carried it directly next to cell phones. Overall, this car does not disappoint.

The selection of cellphones is poor and when infiniti was contacted they could not explain how they would keep in pace with new cell phone offerings amongst the various carriers. I was not informed of this prior to purchase and have found it to be a disappointment, due to the fact my freedom of choice in selecting a cellphone has been eliminated.

Infiniti falls short in so many areas. The controls are a foot away from the display for what you're changing (A/C, stereo), the A/C controls are non-intuitive. Bumper paint doesn't match. Dash lights don't match. Body and trim panels vary in fit. Front sport seats are too tight for an average (180 lb) adult. Bad clutch - in for recall today. Cheap floor mats are almost worn out! 14 bolts/plastic cover to replace oil filter and change oil. Front chrome grill easy to chip. Moon roof trim falls out. Redundant service disply in console and in dash. Cheap analog clock should be digital for quick read. Leather not as soft as previous year. Little storage in cabin. Stereo FM separation very poor.

I had to part ways with my G35x. The car is great but the power is unbalanced for the handling and weight of the vehicle. Watch out for the MPG. Averaging 20, doing good to get 22 on the highway. The G needs a 6th or 7th gear. 3000+ RPM at 70-75 mph on the highway is poor engineering.

Love that G!! Extras certainly pay off. If you have the means, I suggest the Infiniti cold air intake system with Stillen exhaust upgrades. Purrs like cougar! The car growls upon acceleration. The Billet grill is definitely an eye catcher and I get many double takes. All in all, a well thought out car, with smart perks, easy on the eyes interior design, auto up-down windows, quiet and roomy interior (and I'm 6 foot), smart key, great seats, smooth ride, fantastic cornering, and great acceleration and stopping power. Granted I have some extras on the vehicle which help, but the bottom line, I smoked my friend's M3. I am Infiniti. Hear me roar!

After 6 months of use, the car's pros and cons become more obvious. Love the power, handling and braking with an excellent turning circle. Driving over wet leaves, the 4WD system is flawless and solid. The ride comfort is excellent for a sporty sedan of this size. Acceleration is too touchy at standing start and the manual mode auto does have quirks: 3rd gear is abrupt up and down; can't seem to figure out how the speed sensing wipers work (maybe they don't); the non-navi LCD screen could have been put to even better more extensive use for driver info.

Was back and forth between Acura TL-S and Infiniti G35 and am so glad I went Infiniti. So much power, love the rear wheel drive, features galore and probably got a better deal than I would have on an Acura. Navigation is great, real time XM traffic will change the way you drive and the built in hard drive is a killer feature. The new styling and revamped interior really make the G35 standout among the competition. It's also nice to pull up next to Audi A4 owners and blow them off the line! Such a fun car, I still can't wait to get in and take off every day.

I was intrigued when my local Infiniti service staff started to buzz about the 2007 G35 sedan. I needed more sport in my life after several years in an I35. I got it. This car is a category killer. I bought the G35 Sport w/5 speed auto and most techo options. It's blistering fast, has great handling (stable at any speed and extremely nimble), and has top class braking. It's very tractable around town in D - shift the manumatic for yourself, and it's show time. The nav system is top notch and the 10Gb music hard drive stores 500 CDs. Unlike some I like its looks just fine. Very modern in the Japanese idiom. Downs: stiff "sport" seats, poor mileage. But for $40K you can't do better than this.

The G35 Absolutely A Pleasure To Drive

Originally had my heart set on a BMW 335 but instantly fell in love with the 2007 G35 the moment I sat in it and floored the accelerator. I was amazed at the incredible power and attention to detail in both interior and exterior. I bought the 2007 Journey G35, Blue Slate with Stone Interior, premium package with navigation. It is truly an absolute pleasure to drive and highly recommend anyone considering a BMW to at least test drive a G35. A classy, sleek, very fast, luxury car.

G35-S, Wonderful auto, electronics, voice, nav, etc., take a little time to learn. Handles like a dream, stops on a dime with perfect control, superb power, impressive body lines and style. When you start adding on all the bells and whistles, nav, voice control, rear camera, great stereo, all HID lights and tracking headlights, radar cruise control, etc.Bottom line, the G price, style, dependablity is tops

I just got my G35x about 2 weeks ago. Wow! I read the reviews so I felt confident with the purchase, thought I knew exactly what I was getting. I am happy to say that I received much more than I anticipated. The styling is classy, the quality is impeccable and the power this car delivers is "infinitely" beyond my expectation. The G has an impressive center of gravity that makes the car stick to the road in the corners. I love all the techno gadgets as well including the nav and hard drive for storing my music on board. The voice commands and the Bluetooth wireless for my cell is my favorite feature. The fob key entry system rocks. This car delivers a flawless experience, end to end.

Love the car. Great performance and handling. With the weather in OR I got the X model and am very happy with it. I drove all the rest and the G was the best car. This is my 3rd Infiniti and I have been spoiled by them. I had a problem a couple of weeks ago, the car overheated. Long story short, the dealer replaced the radiator and the air cond. pump in one day. No charge of course.

After looking at all the reviews and what you get for your money, this vehicle is hands down the best deal out there. A similarly equipped BMW 335 would have cost me 10-12K more. I love this car for the awesome mix of luxury and high performance. Can't beat it for the price.

Hung on to my Honda Accord V6 Coupe for as long as possible (wife, 2 small kids and an SUV). I was looking for a 4-dr sports sedan that offered sportiness, luxury, and room for 4. I set my sights on the G35x as well as the BMW3. Once I had a look at the new lines and interior of the 2007 G and took it for a test drive a clear winner was declared. The G35 offered nearly everything that the BMW 3s had with better reliability and for way less money - performance and value!! After 10 months, and 15,000 mi. I just can't say enough good things about this car - I'm too busy driving it.

We know the good points. My 6MT is in Lakeshore Slate and I was stuck with the black dash. The bumper paint is shades off from the body panels. The moonroof trim pieces keep falling in. The Washi katana trim in the door differs a shade from that in front of the passenger. The passenger seatbelt receiver is uncomfortably high for riders. The nav/radio console is trimmed in bright silver but other pieces are matte or brushed nickel, looking as if designed for a different car. The purple dash accent lighting differs from gauges to knob highlight rings. After a rain, opening the trunk lets water pour in from the perimeter of the lid. The carpet is a loose warpy fit in back. Mats are cheap, thin.

Picked up my G35 AWD in August 07, loaded with nav, rosewood and premium package. The power this car delivers is absolutely amazing!! You will get tempted to push it on the highway and other drivers seem to be tempting you to show them what you can do. You are getting a great product for the price. Very comfortable, responsive, and beautifully designed. A definite chick magnet too!! Just watch them stare as you zoom by.

I did tons of research on competing cars from BMW, Lexus, etc. None matched the G35 for looks, reliability, and quality for the price. The car is a blast to drive and very comfortable on long trips. Edmunds Consumers' and Editors' favorite coupe says it all. Granted, gas mileage suffers, but the power of the engine is stunning - when you punch it, hang on, and I mean, hang on tight. One more thing - it gets lots of attention. Want to get noticed? Buy this car!

Very happy so far with my new G35. Decided on a Journey model with Premium package and Performance wheel upgrades - concerned about the "firm ride" reviews from Sport model drivers. I traded in my Lexus coupe for a more practical sedan that could fit more than two passengers and was still fun to drive. I previously drove a BMW coupe and was unimpressed by multiple minor problems though thought it was fun to drive. I basically limited my choices to the Lexus IS 350 and the Infiniti G35, and it was a close call. Lexus is more refined and reliable (based on experience), but the Infiniti was more fun to drive and thousands less, so I figured I'd give it chance. Happy so far!

I also own a G35 coupe and the sedan is every bit as pleasurable and performing. The 4 wheel drive finally got my wife out of an SUV and in hard rains it's been extremely stable and predictable. I'm getting 22.9 to 23.5 mpg on the road and about 19 to 19.5 around town. I'm glad I bought the tech package as the laser cruise control when there are 3 or more lanes is a very nice feature. I don't and would not recommend using it on busy 2 lane interstates. Three things I don't like. When the wipers go on you have to manually turn the lights on. No automatic door locks once car is put in drive. The CD box in the trunk is a pain and makes loading luggage a chore and limits space. Get rid of it!

I upgraded to the G35 Sport from a rather outdated Oldsmobile, so I was immediately impressed by the handling, power, and comfort. Not only is the car stylish, it can stand on its own when it comes to performance. The touchscreen GPS and bluetooth are great features that make driving much more convenient. Also, you have about 5 different methods to play music through the car, including the flash drive, in-dash hardrive, 6 cd changer, in-dash player, and the RCA jacks in the center armrest. Gas mileage ranges from 16 mpg in busy city streets, to about 27 mpg on open freeway at 75-80 mph.

It's like a hotrod, something I enjoyed as a teenager, now at 70 years of age, I'm reliving those feelings. This car is so much fun to drive, using the paddle shifters, or the automatic when running around town. The car is tight, and ride is firm but not harsh, the seats are excellent, very comfortable front or back. I put two golf bags in the trunk (they just fit) along with a few other things. The nav option is great, and along with the XM road information you'll never get lost, I love the way it's setup. Give this car a try, you won't be disappointed.

I was dead set on a BMW 3 series, but I thought the price was a bit much for a car without power tilt. I looked around and finally came across the G35. I drove from Reno, NV to Roseville, CA to test drive it. After driving out of the parking lot I was sold. I've had the car since 17 May 2007 and I absolutely love it! The power is beyond what I wouldv'e imagined. Handling is superb. The sound system is great! For $10k less than the BMW I wanted, I could not ask for a better car!

I got a G35 coupe in July with the special financing before the G37s were coming out. The BMW 335i is probably better, but its 15k more. Doesn't quite have the power I'd like at low RPMs that I'd like, but at high RPMs it does great. I find myself making excuses to push this car and drive in a manner some would consider inappropriate. The sports suspension is a tiny bit stiff, but in all, it's a great car.

I have just finished my first 1000 miles with the G35-S, and I have nothing but positive things to say about the car. I was looking for something a little sportier than my Lexus E330, but, since I drive a lot, I also wanted a more comfortable ride than what a typical sports coupe had to offer. This car delivers the best of both worlds, delivering a quiet, comfortable ride even with the "sports" suspension, while being responsive and powerful enough to provide the fun and excitement of a sports car. And, by the way, very reasonably priced when compared to BMW, the Lexus G series, and other competitors in this class. Highly recommended.

I have been researching this purchase for over a year now, ever since I found out they were redesigning the G35. I was not impressed with the previous version's interior design or quality, but this redesign is incredible!! I am a package kinda guy, meaning I like both interior and exterior refinement and the folks at Infiniti have got it right... and it blows the BMW 3 Series to the side of the road. The get-up-and-go of this car is great. The technology of the navigation system and audio systems is out of this world and the car just looks great! I compared to the Lexus IS350, BMW 335, Acura TL, Audi A4. This car is number one!

I bought this car because it was fast, agile and sleek. The exterior has aggressive styling that recieves many compliments, the interior is not very functional and hard to find a place to get comfortable. This car has so much plastic in it I am afraid it may melt if I leave it out too long. Even though I know the car is well built, I dont feel a sense of quality to it. The car has a rather potent engine but it does not grip the road well enough for having AWD.

This is my 3rd car since college and definitely the best. Granted the G35x is significantly more expensive than a Honda Accord or a Volvo S60, however, the power and comfort is amazing. If you're a music fan, I recommend getting the navigation package since you can burn your CDs on to a 9 gig hard drive for your convenience. I'm not sure why the car really comes with a 6 disc changer since it's pretty obselete when factoring in the other feature.

Intensively researched and compared the Infiniti G35 Sport to Acura TL-S, BMW 3 series, Audi A4, and Cadillac CTS. On paper the G was the best value. Test drives and now ownership confirm my research. The 6MT Sport Sedan provides ready power, a stable, sure and agile ride combined with a gently sloping, sexy upscale interior, large fuel capacity and best trunk size in its class. Six speed manual transmission has a longish clutch that takes a bit of an adjustment - about two days in my case. The short throw shifter is crisp and decisive. Exterior design is sleek and strong; people stop and stare.

The technology is crazy; bluetooth, nav, keyless entry, voice activiation for everything, etc. The Bose radio is great for factory but not aftermarket material. The highs could be a wee bit higher and the bass a bit lower. Very pleased with the purchase at this point in my life.

Previous owner of an Audi A4. This car is everything I thought the Audi would be in performance and handling. If driven 75 on the highway it will get over 27 mpg with premium gas. With mid-grade I get 25+ in mixed driving (up/down a 2300 ft elev. canyon every day and 70-135 mph on a road trip to MT). I usually drive at 4000-6000 ft elevation. There are a few things that could be improved though. The throttle really closes when you take your foot off the gas. Good for performance driving, but annoying when you have the cruise on or are going downhill. Clutch is a bit touchy. The inside of the trunk lid is painted, but not clear coated. Looks cheap even though most people won't see it.

Turned in my '03 G35 for new Journey last week. Completely different car. This car feels bigger and heavier. It's quicker off the line but does not feel quite as sporty. Maybe because my last car had the sport package. I enjoyed the exhaust note on the '03 better. Got my '07 with all the options for under 37k. Test drove the Acura TL Type S, not bad but nowhere near the luxury or refinement of the G. The 330i was just too expensive with all the options. So far I'm really enjoying this car. If I could just learn how to use all the toys!!

I started looking around and I narrowed my choices down to the Acura TL S-Type, Lexus IS 350, BMW 330i and the G35. I am an avid lover of the BMW, the Acura would have been my second choice, however the G35 was what my heart told me to follow and I have not looked back since. There is nothing bad I could find to say about the G35. I ended up getting a black G with tan interior. The 9.5 gig hard drive to download music to the car just blew me away. I have owned about 10 cars in my life and driven several others and nothing in or near the G35's class can compare to the performance and handling of this vehicle. Infiniti has upped the ante - can any other automobile step up to the challenge?

The lease on my 2005 Audi A4 was coming due in a couple of months, so I decided to get an early start on car shopping. Looked at the 2007 Audi A4 3.2 but also stopped at Infiniti to check out the new G35 because I liked the new body style. As soon as I got behind the wheel. It was a no brainer. More power than the Audi and a plusher interior. Couldn't wait until my lease on the Audi was over, so worked out a great deal to get into the G35x. Opted for the Premium package and so far so good. Can't get enough!

In my 20s and single, drove a 1994 300ZX manual, decked out leather. Now that it's been 10+ years and I am 32, my tastes and styles have hopefully improved. My thirst for flat out, eye watering performance has only grown. My wife's toyota solara V6 was growing long in the tooth. As we looked for a new car, nothing made her really get excited, no matter the manufacturer or price range. I had shown her the Infiniti website and we were off to go find one. Once she saw the car and went for a spin. She loved it, I loved it. The car has intense performance and a refined style that seperates it from the cookie cutter Lexus and BMW set. If there is any question of safety and traction, go AWD.

Was going to get the 6 speed but living in New England I thought better. Car has everything one would want in a high end auto but the price. Blue Slate on black looks sharp. Navi, and premium package were all I needed but tech package for 1000 more seems like a real deal. Car has 110 miles on it, can't wait to open her up after break-in period. Wish it had standard back up sensors because the car is wide and rear is high. The inside of the car is exact carbon copy of the M35/M45. Reason I bought the car, well, it's AWD, has all the toys and can run with anything under 40k.

I did my due diligence before buying my G. I have had a couple of 5 series 5 speeds and just felt that BMW was living of their name more than advancing their car. Test drove the TL 6 speed and did not like the handling or the stereo. Lexus has nothing to offer in the 6 speed (is250?). I test drove the G35 and it was an easy decision. This car has it all - luxury, power, handling, looks, reliability, power, GREAT sound from the premium package and did I say power. I have an I30 5 speed going on 150K miles that I have only put brakes on once. These cars are really made well. This is a no brainer.

Was an Acura man. Compared the G against Acura TL Type S. You get more car with the Infiniti. Got through a Maine winter with no difficulty. G35x model the way to go if you get any snow/ice. Step on the gas and you'll get thrown deep into the seat. Great cornering abilities too, I haven't been able to throw it loose from a turn. Phenomenal. Couple issues though: audio system is not straightforward, MP3 cds can only be run in-dash player, voice navigation takes some practice (spend an hour actually programming it to recognize YOUR voice), cheap lining for sunroof breaks free too easily, drinks its 93 octane like a frat boy.

In 2004, I leased a G35. I had 11 nagging reasons NOT to like this car, in spite of Motor Trend and everyone else. These were poor sound, outside mirrors, gas mileage, seats, etc. In 2007, for financial reasons, I leased a new one. There is NO comparison. The 2007 G35 is greatly improved over the previous ones and now is the car it was billed to be in 2003 and 2004.

Technology / electronics are amazing - back up camera, navigation system, etc. Car rides well and is FUN to drive with outstanding handling and power. Great styling. Mileage better than expected - getting 21 to 22 mpg on highway with cruise control.

I have owned my G 35X AWD for exactly 1 week now and I'm sorry BMW, but this is the "Ultimate Driving Machine." My wife and I took it on a trip to Atlantic City, NJ and this car not only handles great, but has great pick up as well. We got about 21 mpg highway. I traded in my 2005 Lexus ES 330 for this. I looked at the 2007 Lexus ES 350 as well as the IS and the BMW 330xi and the Acura TL. This car blows them all away! While the Lexus has a slightly smoother ride, the G's ride is sporty, but not rough. The G also has more power that any of the others. I got the premium, navigation, and technology packages. The navigation is the best I've seen and the Bose stereo is outstanding.

I've had this '07 G35S 6mt for just over a week and it's a just as much a thrill looking at it parked as it is to drive. I have all the available options (tech, premium, navigation packages, 4WAS, factory spoiler, splash guards, cargo net). Shifting out of 1st is getting easier and the low-end gear power is awesome - I wouldn't consider the 5 speed automatic for this beast even with the paddle shifters. My wife drives an automatic but enjoys this manual. It's very quiet on the interstate and the suspension is tight but not harsh - just what you need for a true sedan sports car. The quality is great from fit to finish - just hard to keep it under 4000 RPMs during break-in.

Best bang for your buck bar none. Standard stuff much more than you need and pay for elsewhere. Beautiful in and out. AWD nice, finish, smooth ride, comfortable.

I've been driving this car for approx 3 months now and I still catch myself smiling each time I enter the car. I was actually set on buying the 335i, but decided to test drive the '07 6mt before making a final decision. Unlike the very industrial look of the Bimmer's interior, the G had that sense of warmness that I didn't really feel in the other cars I tested (IS 350, TL type S, A4, S4). Besides the IS 350 and 335i, the G simply trumps its competition when it comes to delivering raw power. I didn't think I could love the car anymore. That is until I started modding the car. So far... exhaust, upgraded springs/shocks, 20" wheels... and much more to come.

Need to be light on the pedal because she really wants to run. Beautiful interior with loads of great features standard (bluetooth, sun roof, incredible sound system, etc.).

I have been researching new cars for over a year and the G35X was a last minute choice. I originally looked at Lincoln MKZ, Lexus IS250, Cadillac CTS & BMW 325. But I have to say I'm absolutely in love with this car. It moves like the wind and is a joy to drive. The only issue I have so far is getting the HomeLink system to work with my garage door opener but that's a minor problem when compared with the exceptional performance of this car!

Straight up performance w/luxury and technology! Some may not be ready for the new G35 sedan. Only the few owners of this car can relate. A heavy foot can get you in trouble if you're not careful. It will unleash a plethora of power and unlike the rest of the class. Infiniti comes standard w/306 hp. The G35 Sport is specifically designed w/a limited-slip differential for improved traction under acceleration and larger disc brakes & redesigned calipers for better stopping power. Additional cost for luxury & convenience is very reasonable and with all the toys, it is still a lot cheaper than other cars in it's class. Also, you get the credible repuation of Infiniti's reliability & safety

Overall the 07 G35 Sedan is a superb car. Excellent power and handling and the best brakes in its class. Technology and styling make this car practical and functional. Sold a '03 Mercedes Benz CLK500 and the G35 outperforms it. BMW 335i still holds the benchmark for this class but the G35 is a better value. Cannot justify paying $10k more for a similar performing car with less room and options. Disappointing gas mileage, no better than the V-8 Mercedes. EPA of 19 & 26 is a laugh. I haven't had mileage on averaage higher than 19 during the four months I've had the car. Also had some issues with the voice controls for audio and phone. Fantastic car but not perfect.

Leased a '07 G35 Auto Journey w/sunroof & wheels/tires package. Great car for the $$. Fun, classy & just enough room for us & our 2 yr. old... Didn't want to pay for Premium package since I didn't care for fancy Bose, homelink, MP3 player, memory seats + steering & mirrors, auto-lumber support, dimming mirror or bluetooth. But wished it had heated seats, so I opted for the stand alone sunroof + wheels/tires since the G35 Sports rode a little harsh & Journey more suited for us w/the toddler. This car is very very fast (I came from a Subaru Forester XT which was a total sleeper) and wants to go all the time. Handles extremely well and interior is comfy.

It is a no brainer. Research and test drive the Lexus, BMW, Mercedes etc. Compare their options, price and driving experience with the Infiniti G35. BMW and Mercedes charge lots more for their cars and they have fewer features (unless you want to pay even more money to them). The BMW and Mercedes only have a single CD player and they have no hard drive record feature like the Infiniti. Infiniti is the clear choice this year. I have driven mine for 5000 miles now and it is absolute perfection. I have driven it hard through corners and up to 145 mph. The car handles perfectly under all conditions. You cannot compare the other cars and the price without saying that Infiniti is the best of all

I have all the packages and it is going to take awhile to get up to speed on all the car's capabilities. The road feel is excellent, much better than the comparable Lexus. The back seat area could use more room but my teenage boys love riding in the car so much they don't mind the lack of foot space. This car replaced by Audi A6 and is much more fun to drive. I liked the all wheel drive of the Audi so much I go it on the G35 as well. Need to wait for some snow to see how it does.

I think the Infiniti G is a great value play considering the performance and initial quality. More than anything, new Infiniti buyers will enjoy a very entertaining driving experience. This is a fast car that holds the road nicely. I spent a lot of time driving a Journey with 17 inch wheels prior to purchase, but decided to add the performance tire and wheel package. I think the car has a more refined and quieter ride at highway speeds on the 18 inch Bridgestone tires. The drawback is that the 18" tires can not be rotated like the 17's.

I bought a black G35 sedan from Infiniti of Chantilly. Got the works. Although the stereo isn't digital surround, it still was the best in class. great tech features, good bass, hard drive to store all your cd's. The car gets fast, quick. Feels like 40 when you're doing 70. Bought the active steer, suspn.'s a little stiffer, but it handles great. Nav is decent, back up cam had better features than others'. Still haven't used the Intell. Cruise Control, but it's too much fun to drive. Was initially leaning towards a Type-S, but the feel of RWD and the Studio on Wheels sealed the deal.

The bmw was just an overall nicer car. I guess you get what ya pay for. The g35 also has hard seats and loves to burn fuel. I get about 15-16 mpg around town. The g35 doesn't handle as well as a bmw in high winds or at high speeds. It gets loose in the turns at high speeds. Sure hope gas prices don't climb again.

A 21st century car, with unbelievable nav graphics, adaptive front lighting for driving around curves at night, intelligent cruise control, rear view camera with guidance for back up into parking places, blue tooth phone, XM satellite radio.

Bought the G35 AWD with Premium Pkg, Nav Pkg, Tech Pkg, Rosewood interior, and Splash-guards. The car is awesome. Smooth, powerful drive-train, nice trans (5-spd but that's all you need), tiptronic works great, bluetooth sync'd with no problem to a Sprint Sanyo Katana, excellent sound system, back-up camera is nice to have. Highly recommend the Rosewood interior; without it cheapens the interior. Looked at the the Lexus: IS250, ES350 & GS350 as well as the Acura TL. Evaluating the Infiniti was almost an after-thought. But, for the money and driving experience, the 07 G35 is the standard to beat right now in this class (maybe any class). If looking for a driving experience; look no further.

I wish it had a way to cut the power in 1/2 for valets and the wife :) If you're looking for the king of performance it's either the G35S or the BMW 335i for ($11K more) but I don't see $11K in extra value out of the 335i. The TL is not in the same performance league and the IS350 falls quite short on handling and driver feedback.

Just picked up my '07 G35 Sport 5AT this weekend. What an AMAZING car!!! I have three young children, and they all fit extremely comfortably in the back seat, unlike my prior Volvo S60. Word of warning...this car teases your right foot. Get it on the highway and it wants to go. Have to admit...I give in to the tease :) Highly recommend this car. Great price, beautiful styling, upscale and spacious interior.

test drove the 2007 bmw 328i, audi a4 (2.0t and 3.2), mazdaspeed6, lexus is250. spent the last 5 years driving a 2001 vw jetta wolfsburg with Upsolute chip. the g35s 6mt i picked up a month ago easily outperformed all of them. full of gadgets (i'm a sucker for techy gadgets and gimmicks). perfect balance of sport, luxury, and technology. no other car can hang with the bang for the buck and the only one in its league performance wise is the bmw 335i for an additional $10k. sorry lexus is350, if you're automatic only you are disqualified from serious sports sedan contention. otherwise is350 would also be in this top 3, although for $5k more than the infiniti.

The G35 does everything well. And it's design is subtle - not overstated like many others in its category. Test drive one and you'll agree. Well made. Fun to drive. Good looks.

This G has real power and you can feel it on all levels. Gives you that great sound of the engine too without being annoying. Coming off a BMW 330; the G is just as good in terms of performance at a much lower cost. Also gets a lot of attention because of its awesome looks/exterior design. Nice space inside and not tight at all in the back seats, unlike others in the segment.

Excellent!!!

I've had this car for 2 weeks now and I'm ecstatic over it's head-turning styling and jaw-dropping power. This G35 is the very best in this price range and is far superior, in my opinion, to the BMW 3 series and the Lexus I350. And at a much lower price too! Great, solid feel to the entire machine.

I owned a 2002 Passat & wanted to upgrade by buying a new car. Drove several cars like the Lexis IS 250, Acura TL, BMW 325 and others. Then I took out the Infiniti 35X & bought it. It's been almost a month and I can tell you that it's a great car. It has a lot of power, luxury and beauty. The only negative I can think of is that the fuel economy is OK - not great. But, everything else about the car is really ideal. Before buying any other luxury car take the G35X for a ride, I think that you will decide what I decided and buy it. Good luck.

The good: Drives awesome and the stereo rocks. Very comfortable seats and well put together. The bad: 6 days after taking delivery discovered a paint flaw in three doors (looks like someone ran their fingers under the clear coat and left a "wax residue" the size of a hand). Manufacturer acknowledges it was a factory defect but is only willing to re-paint all doors, plus part of the front and rear quarter will need to be repainted. BBB says I have no case under Lemon Laws. The car is silver which is a difficult color to match. The manufacturer may be following the law by only offering to re-paint but is it really fair to force a client to accept a repainted new car? In my opinion no.

This is a G35 S 6MT with the premium package. The performance is awesome. I've driven Volvo S60R, BMW 330i, Audi A4(3.0 and 2.0 T) and this is the most impressive engine. Best selling point was when salesmen let me test drive alone and left traction control off by accident. Car almost went sideways on dry pavement shifting to second with an automatic. Was concerned about its traction control until I found out traction control was off. I later drove a manual with it on. I can say this is the fastest car I've ever driven and blows BMW and Audi away unless you pay the extra 30-40K for Audi S-4, RS-4, or BMW M3. Premium is worth it for the awesome bose studio on wheels and the bluetooth

The new G35 is solid ride and very well built. I'm replacing a 2005 Acura TL which was a rattling piece of junk. There is a world of difference and not for much more money. The style exterior and interior is great much better than the previous G35. It's very, very fast and fun to drive. If you want one of these cars, get at least the premium and tech packages and the wood package is neat also. The seats are stiff and fairly average size - not made for a large person! It's simply a great value for the money and hopefully be great quality and a great alternative to Acura who I feel is slipping in quality.

I test drove both the BMW 328xi coupe and sedan, neither had anything on the G35x. The power is the first major difference (outside of the price tag). The handling is just a great, while the technology amenities are even better! I live in Minnesota and the AWD makes it the perfect year round sports sedan. Simply a great marriage of performance and comfort.

This is an amazing car. I had to wait for mine to come in for 2 months and for the past 45 days the dealership gave me a 06 G35 to drive -- I did not like it much but when I picked up my new G35 (prem,nav,tires) I was blown away. It is a beautiful car with tons of power and luxury. I got black on black and it looks awesome. Although I have always loved the BMW I just see way too many on the road and the design looks stale to me. Good job infiniti - you have made a huge leap and I bet will sell a ton of the these cars!

I bought the G35x with premium and navigation package (Ponied for the xm radio and xm nav which is a must in the city). In any case, I couldn't be more pleased with this car. Rapid, smooth acceleration throughout the power curve, responsive suspension, really, really a blast to drive. I spent the whole first day with a big grin on my face. Interior and exterior, the styling is just first rate. I went with the black leather interior which against the aluminum trim is beautiful. Mileage for me the first couple of tanks is around 16 mpg, but I'm driving it fairly hard. The acceleration pop of this sedan is remarkable.

I went with a 6MT coupe. The car turns lots of heads and looks more expensive than it is. I constantly see people looking at the car and many say it looks like a Porsche. I considered a BMW 328 or 335 coupe, but I liked this car more than the 328 and it was about $7500 less than a comparable 335. My last two cars were BMWs, but the ones just don't impress me. The Aero Package really changes the look of the car for the better. The front seats are very comfortable for people who aren't overweight. The interior has lots of nice details and storage compartments. The car has plenty of power and handles as well as a BMW, although it's terrible in snow. Gas mileage has been around 24 mpg.

Being in the car industry, i've seen pretty much every make and model, and it's tough to be impressed by anything under $75,000. That is until i came across the 07 G35x. The interior is fantastic, matched by it's exterior appeal. The engine is smooth and powerful, and the Nissan 3.5 is backed by award winning quality. Tried and true, mechanically these cars are bullet proof. The AWD keeps you where you're going, and 0-60 in 5.2 is no joke. Amazing technology, Fantastic audio system, beautiful NAV screen... this car is a tremendous value, and a pleasure to drive.

The new G is fast, and handles great. The Sport model suspension is firm without being harsh, and the paddle shifters for the 5AT are excellent. Inside all of the amenities are within easy reach, and the layout (especially the gauges) is outstanding. Sport seats are comfortable, and hold you snugly through any maneuver :-) The trunk space is pretty limited, and the rear seats don't fold down :-(, so there's room for even large suitcases, but not wide items. Fuel economy is pretty dismal, but to be fair I drive it in manual shift mode all the time, and rarely shift up to 5th except on the highway. Great car, great price, I'm delighted.

I estimate the overall upgrade to be very close to the m35 level and they held tight on price.This car pulls like a demon, and the gas mileage has improved!

First of all, before I begin my review I have to confess that this is my first "luxury sport" purchase. I drove a Saturn prior to buying this car and man it was like a quantum jump onto another planet of driving. Before I purchased this vehicle, I test drove the BMW 330i and Audi A4/S4. For the price, this car just absolutely rocks. If you are a spirited driver and don't mind the 6-speed, I definitely recommend it. Infiniti has revised the interior to be much more pampering, somewhat comparable to a Lexus. I got the Sport 6MT with the premium package (major perk is that it adds the Bose Surround Sound System). Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.

One of the best car i drove.

Bought first Infiniti after driving all comparable entry level luxury sedans. Expected to purchase new Lexus ES350,IS350,BMW 3-series or Accura TL. The new G35 addressed former interior design flaws with clean, upscale, functional controls. Seats comfortable and leather and trim match any car in class. The car stands out, however, in exterior styling and performance. It is truly a head- turner and I've actually grown tired of telling strangers what type of car it is...most believe it would cost $40- $50K. 306 hp rear-wheel drive in Journey model is responsive with a throaty sound better than competitors. Only the BMW 3 models compare in class and are not worth the extra $5-8K. Safe buy.

I just picked up my 2007 G35 Sport Sedan (Auto) last weekend and have been loving it since I drove it off the lot. The other cars that I evaluated in my purchasing process were the Lexus IS350, Audi 3.2 A4, and the BMW 335. The G holds it own with all and surpasses them in many ways, most notably price, performance, and driving experience. Considering that each of the aforementioned models are at least 3k more in price I don’t see how one could justify such a premium. Interior and exterior styling is truly outstanding and the sport model is flat out ‘tight’. An outstanding automobile!

I've owned my new G for 1 month (my family also has a '97 Maxima (102k mi) and '95 240SX (170k mi)). The new G has classy (mature but not boring) styling, a quality interior (with good rear legroom), gobs of power, a great exhaust note, and it corners like it's on rails. Plus, the Studio on Wheels, easy-to-use dashboard controller, and the quality leather are noteworthy. The auto in Sport mode is amazing! Fit and finish are excellent and everything about the car has a solid feel. I highly recommend it. I had also checked out the 3-series (poor rear legroom, mediocre styling, expensive), Lexus IS (SMALL interior, unappealing styling). The wrong-wheel drive TL was not in the running.

There's a low pitched whistling sound coming from the front passenger side driving at >90 mph. BTW for you owners, I use an SD Card Adapter for the Compact Flash port. You can get one on E-Bay.

We just bought the car 5 days ago. The power is intoxicating to say the least! Brakes are great. The interior is so much nicer than the 2006 model. The seats have good side bolsters for those spirited backroad jaunts. The fuel mileage is pretty poor at 18 mph average so far. Hopefully it goes up a few more points after break-in period. The ride is similar to the BMW 325is coupe I had a few years back, sporty but not too bumpy. Haven't driven in the snow yet, but I assume the all-wheel drive and the narrower 17 inch tires should be ok. Once the snow is gone, this car will get a set of 18 inch sport wheels and tires. I think the Boxster will stay in the garage until spring!

Have the car now two weeks, and I am enjoying the car very much. The G, I bought with AWD, (Base car is rear wheel drive), because of the winters in the Northeast and road conditions I felt was a necessity. The car is exceptionally fast and responsive, handles the road like a sports car (Miata) Must be the suspension and tire combo (17"). I think the redesign of the exterior really makes the car stunning in appearance. The interior, mine is black with the chrome, looks sporty yet elegant. I really like the way the dash is designed.

This car is a blast. It handles superbly, revs quickly all the way up to 7500, and offers superior comfort. For the money it can't be beat. However, it's a little rough around the edges. The throttle hangs when you release it and then the RPM's drop suddenly, limiting responsiveness. Engine vibrates noticeably at higher RPM. Sunroof seems to create some wind noise at >70 MPH.

I have owned the BMWs and they do not handle as well, nor have the reliability record, of the Infiniti. The G35 delivers an unbelievable amount of horsepower for the money. The cornering on the car is fantastic with outstanding breaking and acceleration responsiveness. I am truly excited to drive again!!!

Very good car, but it has its quirks

Overall, this is an excellent car, but you have to accept certain Saab-ish or Subaru-ish quirks that come with it. Can not complain about the shift linkage, handling, acceleration, or comfort. The quirks I mentioned include things like memory seats. Yes, the seat will move to the predetermined position, as will the steering wheel, but the side view mirrors will remain still. Also, here are RCA jacks for an MP3 player in the center arm rest compartment, but there is no integrated charger or mount for the iPod. The car also does not have daytime running lights. Overall, these are small gripes and the money saved over a MB, Audi, or BMW is well worth the minor inconveniences.

I test drove the BMW335i, Lexus IS350, and Acura TL Type-S. Very respectable competitors with loads to offer, but... BMW shifts were rubbery, and a 10k prestige premium didn’t feel justified, especially considering reliability and repair cost. Lexus 350i was elegant inside but handling spongy. TypeS was the closest competitor for me, comparably equipped for the same price. High quality 2- tone leather, carbon fiber trim. Handled well overall, but short 20 hp and FWD just falls short of RWD kick. The G35 Sport was crisp, responsive, refined inside and out. Drove both 5A w/paddles (nifty) and 6MT (nicer!). My wife smiled as she left the 5A driver’s seat, “I see why you like this car, wow!”

Was circling the M45 but didn't need all that car (no kids etc) so the BMW 335i was the first car then the G followed - the G is far better value with no sacrifice in performance under 99% of driving - and it brakes and comes off the line far better

Best so far

Having owned BMW, Audi, and Acura over the past ten years, Infiniti has a real ringer with the G35. The build quality is superb, the engine totally rips and is smooth as silk, the balance between comfort & performance is the best I've found, and is hands- down the best deal going in the small luxury/sports-sedan category. There are a few irritating misses, but overall, you can't get much better than the G35.

I first test drove the BMW 328XI and was impressed with its driving, handling, and exterior appearance. However, the interior of the vehicle was a disappointment. For a vehicle well over 40 grand the interior should be eye catching as well. Later that day I test drove the 07 Infiniti G35x which to me handled just as well as the BMW. The exterior of the Infiniti is just as impressive as the interior. I purchased it fully loaded for just over 40k. I got it in black with beige leather which I receive compliments all the time. BMW should take a lessons from Infiniti on interior. There is no comparison between the two. The 3.5L V6 (306 hp), blows BMW(230hp) away. BMW is in my rear view mirror.

I previously owned a 2005 G35 6MT. The 2007 G35 Sport is more luxurious and powerful. The handling seems ever so slightly less agile, but the overall refinement of the car is obvious in every way. Interior design is now more in line with competitive cars. An excellent follow up to a great sports sedan.

Looked into the is250, Mercedes c320, bmw 330, Audi a4, Audi a4, and this was the best of it's class imo. outperforms all of the vehicles power wise, although handing in the bmw was great better than the g35. this is a great buy for an entry level luxury car, and i'd highly recommend getting the premium package with it that includes the moonroof, 6 disc, 10 speaker / 3 subs made from BOSE, bluetooth, heated seats, heated mirrors, homelink, etc all for like 2500 extra which imo is cheap for what you get out of it.

Move over BMW 3 series. There is a new winner in that segment that costs thousands less. I drove both the BMW 335 and 328 sedans, Audi A4, Acura TL, Lexus IS (both models) and none compared to the new G35 sedan. Although BMW's steering was more precise and Infiniti has not mastered 0 body roll when making sharp turns, the G35 kills the BMW 3 series and its competitors in every other segment, and again, it's much cheaper. It offers more horsepower then the BMW and the interior is not cheesy looking at all as it is on the BMW. It offers quality and reliability as does Acura and Lexus but still has a sporty feel to it unlike Lexus. Summary: Move over BMW 3 series, there is a new winner!!!

I've had my '07 g35 sport automatic for about 3 weeks now. I cannot believe how exciting it is to drive! From a technology and performance standpoint, there is no other car that can touch it in this class. You currently cannot even buy a BMW 3 series (at any price) that comes with as many options as this car straight from the factory. The car is definitely as fast as it looks. If you want fuel economy, look elsewhere. Hopefully you don't think scorching acceleration should offer 30 mpg. I'm getting 18 mpg in the city and around 21 mpg on the highway.

I test drove BMW, Lexus and other cars before buying the G35. For handling, feel, options, and pleasure, the G35 came out on top. For the price with all options, the G35 came out on top. A minor trade off is that the gas mileage is not as good as a BMW or a Lexus. For quality of workmanship, warranty and pure pleasure to drive, I do not think that any other car can compete with the G35 for the same price. It is a true sports car disguised as a family car. It does take a while to learn how to operate the technology, but I find that to be a welcome challenge that keeps me from getting bored on long drives. The navigation system is very user friendly and accurate. This is the ultimate car

Awesome Car!

I traded in my 2006 GS35 for the 2007 GS35 and let me tell you that so far it is worth every penny. There are significant differences when comparing the two. First and foremost, the power. The engine is powerful and smooth. You don't hear as bumps in the road as in the 2006. You have to watch the speedometer because getting up to 100 is easy. The interior quality definitely has improved significantly as well. If you want a fun car and reliable car to drive, this is it. Only regret is that I didn't hold off long enough to get this car first.

The only draw back for this car is that its fuel economy. I averaged 14 mph with 12 mph in city and 20 mph in highway. other than that everything is very well built. P.S. check your car very carefully when you receive it, my rim and key are damaged. i noticed it few days later, they blame it on me.

Traded my '03 G35 for the redesigned '07. What an improvement!! While the car was great to begin with Infiniti tweaked the exterior a bit while really addressing some shortcomings with the interior. I'm finding myself looking for excuses to drive.

I love driving again. I was a prev. Infiniti owner. I like the reliability, quality & style that the brand carries. I wasn’t that thrilled with the seats & dash on the '06 model, but the '07 is different. The ’07 G35 is stylish, powerful & well proportioned. The cockpit holds you like a pilot: steering wheel is powered & telescoping; seats move back to let you out; push button start; LED screen nicely controls navigation, radio and more. The nav. shows bodies of water, airports, restaurants & gas stations. the steering is tight & it has good shocks. The car does jump a little when stepping on the gas which kills gas mileage but it's worth it

This car is a great value for the money. It combines performance + technology well just like BMW. I previously test drove the Lexus IS250 AWD and decided to go with this car because it had more rear legroom. Head to head it is a better match up with the IS350. I got it with the Premium package and Nav. I love the Compact Flash slot up front because you can use it to play your mp3s and wmas. You can also store your songs on the 9.5 GB hard drive. Very few cars out now have both these features. You don't even need CDs. The Nav can be used with voice or touch screen. You can also watch DVDs on the same screen if you hookup a video player like a Video Ipod or Zune !

I was debating between the G35 and the BMW 335i coupe. I test drove both and both are great cars. The BMW engine is a bit more refined and the manual shifting seemed more effortless. But the G35 Sport provides 95% of what BMW can offer and is $8000 less comparably equipped. The G35 interior is top notch. The BMW interior is more industrial looking in an 'Ikea' sorta way. I chose the G35 Sport because it is stylish, powerful, well appointed, and won't give me headaches once the warranty is over. I have no regrets purchasing this car, but wonder if I should have waited one more year for the redesigned 2008 G35 coupe....Well done Infiniti!

Not as refined of an engine/transmission nor as surgical in handling as a BMW 3 Series, but the new G35 sedan is the only Japanese sport sedan that comes pretty darn close. The sport level edges the gap even closer, which gives you rear wheel assisted turning. With superior integration of technology and a much improved interior from its predecessor it is difficult to find fault in this car. In comparison, the IS350 has a stuffier interior and a softer ride, much less sportier. The BMW 3 Series is much pricier and has questionable long term reliability. This car is the perfect median when it comes to Japanese value and reliability vs German performance and refinement.

I've had the 2007 Infiniti G35 for three weeks now. What a great car - handling, acceleration, comfort, and looks. 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds is not a joke. I've seen adult men drool while walking around my car. I would never have looked at the 06 and previous models. The redesign for 2007 is sharp and gorgeous.

Picked up a 07 G35 X recently. I really cannot stop driving the car. It handles excellently, rides smooth, and has every technology. From Satellite radio to laser cruise. Cannot get a better car for the money. Infiniti quality is excellent. BMW just not as reliable in recent times. AWD is also available with full 300hp. Not so for BMW(yet) or lexus(ever?). If you live in a climate that can take advantage of the AWD it really makes this car a no brainer for the compact luxury sports sedans.

Had the car less than a week, but so far so good. Has amazing V-8 type power - nothing short of a rocket ship! Everything about the car is beautiful from the curvy lines (yes, you can really tell the difference between the 06 and 07 WHEN they are near each other - the 07 is far more elegant) to the luxurious interior. Infiniti has a car that performs like a BMW yet is as luxurious as a Lexus - all for $5 - $10K less than those guys. It's an incredible value.

My 2006 Audi A4 3.2l was recently totaled. The new G35 was worth the wait. Interior and exterior quality of this car are superb and a significant improvement from the 2006 model. I was concerned that this vehicle would be a cheap "substitute" for the BMW or not live up to my Audi. NOT! In my opinion THIS car has now set the new standard, especially considering the outstanding features and cheaper price. This car is now unmatched: Fun to drive, great power, reliability, luxurious interior, tech options, AND less expensive... Negatives? While I personally would rank overall performance of the G35 best in the class, I would still rank steering precision 2nd to BMW. Fuel economy is so-so.
