2003 Infiniti G35 - Luxury Leather (A5) Sedan
Pros: Power and Response
Advice: Heated seats/mirrorsExceptional power and response over competitors in range, including BMW and Lexus. Unexpected comfort and interior quality in Biege & Platinum package. Handling and drive superior to BMW, as is total value. Phenomenal braking and traction control. Snow & Ice are NO problem for this rear-wheel drive! Bose sound system is refined, discriminating, and automatic. SAT/NAV superior to all competitors in class. Dealer experience and folow-up has been outstanding.
2003 Infiniti G35 - Luxury (A5) Sedan
Cons: Radio and clock display, gas milage
Advice: Watch out for poor gas milageClock needs brighter light, radio display hard to read during the day even in moderately bright day. WOW, what a great performance car. Its bad that you are forced to get full size spear tire( which takes trunck space away) with the Winter Package!!
2003 Infiniti FX35 - AWD
Pros: SHAPE AND POWER
Cons: REAR VISABILITY LIMITED
Advice: GREAT IF YOU ARE NOT LOOKING FOR A BIG GAS GUZZLING SUVBIG HEAD TURNER. ALOT OF POWER FOR A 6 CYLINDER. HAVE THE CAR LESS THEN A MONTH AND LOVING IT.
2003 Infiniti G35 - Luxury (A5) Sedan
Pros: performance and style
Cons: the sunroof taking up needed head room. 4-6 mo wait to get one
Advice: there is not another car in its class for the price. you just have to wait awhile to get one.i keep reading about the breaks squeaking but so far i have not expirenced that at all. the car fly's and handles like nothing i have ever driven. beware to those out there over 6'1'. the cockpit is a little tight with the sunroof. i have the aero package in silver and the car turns heads. luckily the performance backs up the cars great looks.
2003 Infiniti I35 - Base
Pros: power and ride
Cons: somewhat sedate exterior styling
Advice: give this car serious considerationvery smooth and exceptionaly stable with the sport package. Tires are a little bouncy and I would change to the new Michieln Pilot AS when due. Cabin is very quiet and well layed out. Stereo is excellent. Nice torque at lights. I traded my 95 BMW 540 and can say other than the cheesy wood trim,this car performs as well as the beamer (hopefully without the huge repair bills)This is a great value car which handles like a dream.
2003 Infiniti G35 - (A5) Coupe
Cons: Analog Clock
Advice: If your budget is upto 40K for a sports car - this is the right choice. Beyond that think 911 Turbo.The performance, styling and handling is better than any other vehicles I considered. I test drove the G35 Coupe. For comfort - most of the others were better I think. But when your buying a sports coupe - you dont care about the comfort - buy a sedan then. I havent bought as yet - trying to sell my Honda first - not enough trade in value offered.
2002 Infiniti I35 - Base
Pros: Silky smooth, breathtaking performance. Silent inside.
Cons: A little jittery on poor roads. Wide turning circle due to front-wheel drive.
Advice: Take the time to check out all the added value features. Read a leading consumer magazine to verify incredible reliability.The I35 is a big car, nicely disguised as a scorching performer. Either that or - it's a bomb, nicely dressed up as a conservative sedan. Either way, it can pass as a luxury sedan pulling up to the Ritz, and then go out and blow the doors off Mustangs and Camraros. I've had ZERO problems of any kind coming on 12,000 miles and it's been across the country and back. It's graceful and silent inside with many luxury features and nice touches. It has a wonderful, solid FEEL to it. Whatever you ask of it, the car just does it. While it drives like a big car, it responds and doesn't wallow or hesitate. WONDERFUL feel to the brakes. I like the styling. It isn't tricky or gaudy; it's a nice looking 4-door sedan. Comes with wonderful warranty and roadside service, both of which you may never need. Wonderful stereo! You should hear Mozart or Brahms or Nancy Sinatra on it! The six-disc changer is easy to work and the controls on the steering wheel are just right. Super-comfortable driver seat and all the passengers I've carried so far love it. This includes my 91-year-old mom who rode across country in it.
