Cons: Side view mirrors
Advice: Get the premium package and GPSA dream to drive, plenty of power and handling ability. Seems like it's on rails. Stops on a dime. Traded my 2003 3.5 Altima for this baby, no more torque steer. It's the bargin of 2003, and more than likely, 2004
Pros: The motor
Cons: Driver side Seat
Advice: Lose weight if you drive a lotI have owned the G35 sedan for 6 mos. now. The only problem that I have is the driver side seat is breaking down. The seat is no longer comfortable. But overall the car is sporty, and very practical. I can race a Mustang (and win) or pull up to Valet Parking in my Armani suit and Italian shoes and not feel out place with only a $34,000 car.
Pros: Perfect combination of style and power.
Cons: small glove box
Advice: Enjoy!She purrs! The car offers great handling and acceleration with sexy lines and numerous comfort/luxury features. The engine sounds amazing, the interior is nicely designed, and the car constantly captures the attention of other drivers.
Cons: Style of instrument panel
Advice: Be prepared for a fun time - the car has plenty of power and is a great rideThe test drive was excellent - best handling, power, and comfort. Great cornering and ability to maneuver. Car handled heavy traffic, short stops and need to accelerate perfectly. Nice tight steering and great shifting on 6MT. Turned heads as I drove by.
Pros: Styling with performance
Cons: Seats are not that comfortable
Advice: If want a performance sedan, best value for the dollarDollar for dollar, it has no competition. Great looks, great performance and unlike BMW they understand the word customer. Was apprehensive about going from a BMW 540i back to a 6 cylinder. Different torque curve, but very, very pleased so far.
Pros: There are too many...probably how gorgeous it is, though...or that engine...
Cons: The shockingly small trunk (9-3 withdrawl...), pain-in-the-ass front cupholders located where only the double-jointed have access to them. Also, the tires aren't the best...I'm gonna switch 'em with Potenza SO2s.
Advice: Go for the manual - the auto is nice, but to truly have the experience you need the stick (it's a very good one, I might add)...oh, and kill the stability program, it's a nuisance it's so damned good.My God! She flies! When it was time to give up my beloved 2000 Saab 9-3 SE, I found myself in an automotive landscape which had changed quite a lot over the three years since I'd last ventured into it. Under the guidance of my car-nut son, I began test-driving the usuals...then we found the G. I didn't bother to try a 330i or S60 on for size...one spin was enough. If I was convinced of my chioce when I drove the auto tranny version, I was won when I sat in my M6 when she arrived in the first shipment of stickshifts to Canada. It's been about three months now, and I'm completely at home with nothing but praise for this masterpiece - it's beautiful, powerful as hell (you wanna make it real great - tune another 40 horses outta that silky engine), and almost perfect in virtually every aspect. I apologize to people all the time after giving them the mistaken impression that I payed 50+ thousand (Canadian) for this beauty! WOW.
Pros: The kick butt engine!
Cons: I have yet to find a bad feature on my car.
Advice: Be prepairded to wait for a 6 speed manual transmission. They are in very short supply.Just got my G35 Sport Coupe, 6-speed manual transmission and this is an exceptional vehicle for the price. It is the more sophisticated Z350, with great handling and plenty of guts. I cannot drive this car enough it is such a blast. I would highly recommend getting the manual transmission over the automatic. This is a sports car, and having the manual makes this car a monster when attacking the road. The interior is very comfortable, but not designed for people over 6 feet tall. Go figure, it is a Japanese car company. The back seat pictures on the Internet do not do the car justice. The back seat is very roomy in the legs for people under 5’8 inches. I would not recommend long trips for back seat passengers, but for short trips around town they work great. Both the driver and front passenger have duel climate control and both the driver and front passenger seats are loaded with adjustments.
