2003 Infiniti G35 - w/Leather (A5) Coupe
Pros: A little foot on the gas and you are gone!
Cons: The Xenon headlights don't get far down the road on low beam.
Advice: Tread lightly on the brake pedalThis car has great pick up! For me, it was by far the most comfortable of the cars listed below. Interior and exterior appearance very nice. In spite of the magazines' bashing of the control placement, I found this very intuitive and easier to use than other cars. It seems to have slightly more road noise than a BMW. The biggest difference between this car and the BMW, very light touch on the controls! BMW felt stiff, required 'more' driver input to make it work (steering, gas, brakes, and SEATS). REALLY enjoyed the coupe version of the G35, but needed a little more trunk room than it offers. For a couple grand less than a BMW, it's a great car!
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.
