Pros: Exterior appearance
Cons: Interior design too much like the Maxima. Okay
Advice: Definately put it on your listLeather interior is comfortable, controls are self-explanatory. I test drove the MT in THE RAIN and it handled very well.
Pros: Exterior Design & Price
Cons: Gas Mileage
Advice: Best buy in its classI had a choice, a BMW 3 series or the G35. Sure, the BMW was a better ride but only by a slight margin. Not enough to justify the $8k extra I would've paid for the BMW. At the price point, the G35 can't be beat. My friend purchased a BMW 330 recently & he's having nothing but trouble having to go to the dealership all the time to get things fixed. Fixing the BMW cost much more than to fix Infiniti as well. All these reasons made the choice clear. I prefer the exterior design of the G35 opposed to the BMW 330. Interior the BMW wins hand down, but the G35 isnt that bad. People say the Interior sucks but I actually like it, but it could be better. The G35 also provides more power but the BMW is better on the corner turns. G35 is a great choice & a beautiful car. Can't say enough of the compliments I get from strangers & my friends always asking me to pick them up in my G35. I truly believe that this would be still great value if it were $10k more, but luckily for us it's affordable.
Cons: Loved everything
Advice: Buy at the end of the month, and talk about the car first before mentioning your trade or other such things.Ride is a little rough with the 19' wheels, but overall very smooth steering and handeling. I love the 'get up and go' with 298hp...all that a girl needs! :) A very nice and fun car all around...just makes you want to go for a drive!
Pros: The feel and control of going fast and the sound of the exhaust
Cons: Rough ride at speed
Advice: Buy it and enjoy driving everytime, everywhere.This car excites you even driving to the local hardware store. On the road....pure joy but rough ride. Get a very very good radar detector.
Pros: Power and exterior styling.
Cons: Seats and control layout and contrast
Advice: Best sports car to price ratio you will find. Has 2 small back seats and a usable trunk.This is a great drivers car. Plenty of power and good looks that get comments no matter where I go. If I hear the word 'tight' one more time... You definitely have to get the rear spoiler to balance the look. The larger wheels help too. Anyway this is a beautiful and sexy car, but one with a few deficiencies. The seats are quite uncomfortable, at least for me and I am a very average sized person (5'10' and 195 lbs). Some seat controls are manual and some electronic and I can't get the manual ones to the right setting. The steering wheel controls for radio and such are not illuminated and the other controls are confusing in layout, size and color. Can't tell the A/C from the radio. All in all a good car, but not great. It feels a little porky even though it has 280 hp. Weight is an issue here, but it still drives crisply. Best exhaust sounds anywhere.
Pros: Too close to tell
Cons: Interior console, plain, Nissan 350Z Touring edition's dash far exceeds this one, also limited trunk space
Advice: Get it, but I agree, shop around, do your research first to avoid mark-up potentialMine's a 2004, my first car outta' school. All in all, love everything about it! Love how it feels, how it sounds, how it rides, more! Very user-friendly navigation/stereo system for the electronically challenged. Steering on this car is overwhelmingly responsive, along w/ the Brembro brakes. Get one!
Pros: acceleration, comfort, handling, interior
Cons: paint chips easily, the cops always notice this
Advice: read my reviewI bought this new, the car is so powerful and acceleration is great! I have had no problems driving in the snow, except that it sits very low and driving in the rain, it runs well too. The drive is smooth even when I go back to Pittsburgh to visit my family and hit 1+ ft. deep pot holes, I hardly even notice. The mileage was good about 24 mpg, might be higher if you choose to drive the speed limit? All in all, the cars performance is excellent. The interior layout is simple, classy and professional, much better than the m3.
