Advice: Avoid.I purchased a brand new g35 coupe in March of 2003. Let me tell you, this car has been nothing but a headache since I purchased it. First and foremost, the brake pads need to be replaced every 15000 miles (infiniti covers the first 36000 miles then expect to pay to replace the pads) and generate immense brake dust. In addition, the rotors also go bad after 36000 miles, and expect to pay for that as well. Secondly, if you opt for 19 inch rims and tires, expect to replace your tires every 12,000-15,000 miles (at a cost of $300 per tire). Thirdly, the driver door lock went bad under warranty, which the dealer replaced. 3 months later the passenger door lock went bad, the warranty expired on March 26, 2007 and the door lock went bad on April 12, 2007 and they refused to address it. So now I have to repair the lock at an expense of $440. Infiniti also recalled the car and replaced the fuel line. This is all after I have taken terrific care of this car. It has had an oil change every 3500 miles. All services and repairs have been done through Infiniti in a timely fashion, and this is how they repay their loyal customers. If you value your money and time, I highly recommend that you go to another brand of vehicle. Believe me, I will never buy another Infiniti again, and I would recommend that you avoid my mistakes.
Pros: comfortable seats
Cons: none stop problems...always in the shop
Advice: check vechile history at infiniti dealer before you buy the car!!!!bad brakes, bad paint, electrical problems.....
Cons: QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE
Advice: Don't let the looks FOOL youChange breaks at 18000 miles, Tires on 22000 miles, Timing belt and another belt on 28000 miles, All my body and doors have rattling noise that they ever could fix it. Again changing breaks on 33000 miles. Winshield noise when you drive higher than 30 mph kills you. you can't hear anything.
Cons: No Rear window wipers
Advice: If you have winter weather you will need a second set of winter tiresImpressive handling, luxurious interior and wow what acceleration. Loved it the moment I got in. I also drive a modified Viper (730 HP) so I needed a car with some oomph! This car handles like a dream and is very sporty looking. My husband loves when I need to use his SUV. He then gets to drive my awesome car!
Pros: Handling and Power
Cons: Gas Mileage - Downside to the power
Advice: Big difference in HP when using regular vs. premium gasBest size, quality, handling, horsepower, features, and price for its class
Pros: Radio control on steering wheel
Cons: No Memory Seat
Advice: Buy Snow tires for the winterAt first dissapointed with how it took off after the curve. I truly thought it would knock me back for 298 horses but it was uphill. I definitely liked how it handled the high speed turn though. I gave it another chance on the straight away and thats when I knew this baby had some umph!
Pros: Now the ability for the car to absorb impact force,
Cons: brakes a little touchy
Advice: drive gently or it might come out from under you.My wife just totaled my G35 sedan and while the front and rear were wiped out by a couple of pick-ups, the interior looks ok except for the air bag deployment. I'm impressed with the safety inside the passenger compartment.
