Pros: quality...no mechanical problems at all.Very happy w/Infinity
Pros: REAR SUN SHADE- LOVE TO PLAY WITH IT!
Cons: CLOCK- REQUIRES TO MUCH TO READ IT WHILE DRIVING
Advice: GRAB IT...ITS ALOT OF BANG FOR THE BUCKI JUST BOUGHT A USED 2002 I35 LAST WEEK (7/20/07) AND IT WAS VERY WELL MAINTAINED BY THE ONE PREVIOUS OWNER. IT CAME WITH ALL THE SERVICE RECEIPTS. I TRADED IN A 2003 ACURA 3.2 TL WHICH HAD NO TAKE OFF POWER TO ME...THIS CAR IS LIKE A JET AND DOESNT HUNT FOR GEARS LIKE THE TL DOES...... THE INTERIOR IS LAYED OUT VERY NICE. THE CAR LOOKS LIKE IT HAD NEVER BEEN DRIVEN (OTHER THAN THE 80K ON IT...LOL) I HAVE WANTED THIS CAR FOR MANY YEARS BUT COULDNT AFFORD IT NEW... IT HAS HEATED STEERING WHEEL, HEATED SEATS FRONT AND REAR... REAR POWER SHADE, IM NOT SO CRAZY ABOUT THE CLASSIC CLOCK ..IT REQUIRES TO MUCH CONCENTRATION WHILE DRIVING, BUT IT MATCHES THE CLASSY INTERIOR.
Cons: wide turning radius
Advice: Excellent vehicleA little rough on bumpy roads. Wide turning radius. Excellent power and performance. Very comfortable. Very classy. Mpg around 24.
Pros: 255 HP AND A SMOOTH, QUITE RIDE
Cons: THE TURNING RADUS IN INCREADIBLY BAD. YOU NEED A FOOTBALL FIELD TO TURN AROUND
Advice: LEXUS = NO POWER. LINCOLN = HEAVY FEEL. ACURA= MAYBE? BMW = OVERPRICED. INFINITI = RIGHT ON THE MONEYI HAD TO TRADE IN MY G35 COUPE WHEN THE 2ND CHILD ARIVED. IT WAS A SAD DAY. BUT AFTER DRIVING MY I35 FOR 16000+ MILES NOW I CAN HONESTLY SAY I PREFER IT FOR AN EVERYDAY CAR OVER THE G35 COUPE. ITS BEEN QUITE, CONFORTABLE AND ALTHOUGH NOT UP TO THE AWSOME PERFORMANCE OF THE G35 COUPE ITS VERY RESPECTABLE. I CONSIDERED THE LEXIS ES BUT AS MOST LEXIS VEHICALS WAS OVER PRICED AND WELL UNDER POWERED. I ALSO LOOKED AT THE LINCOLN LS BUT AFTER DRIVING IT MADE THE EASY DECISION TO GO WITH INFINITI AGAIN. THE TURNING RADUS IS THE WORST I HAVE EVER EXPIRENCED BUT OTHERWISE YOU CANT BEAT INFINITI FOR THE PERFECT BLEND OF POWER AND LUXURY.
Pros: rear sunshade, heated seats, shift knob
Cons: needs a bit better mpg
Advice: get it...these infinitis are in there last year...this is the best they'll beSmooth drive. Quiet engine with lots of power. Comfortable seats and knowing I paid 3 grand less than the lexus makes me happy. Also, tons of standard features.
Cons: wind noise fromm sunroof
Advice: BUY IT !I purchased the 2003 I35..dealers are giving awesome deals and low financing. I have 1150 miles on the car and have had it for about 3 weeks. The 200 watt Bose stero is great and much better than the Bose in my 2001 Acura TL. The car rides and performs much better than my TL did. There is some wind noise at hwy speed from the sunroof. I am going to have the dealer look at that. The interior is so comfortable that I can't wait for my work day to end just so I can enjoy my car for the ride home. In my opinion, great car, great value with a very upscale appearance and accepted as such by all that see it. Try it and Buy it.
Pros: Very powerful performance from a V6
Cons: No automatic mirrors when changing seat memory
Advice: Look for a vehicle with low mileage as the warantee is good for 60000 miles or 4 yearsThis car is very stable at speed. Handles the road conditions very well. Performance impressive at all levels: (acceleration,braking,handling,etc.) Very comfortable car with good looking interior, nice leather, trip computer, well placed cup holders, steering wheel controls for stereo etc. This car has a 'killer' Bose stereo system with a 6 disc CD changer. Well designed vehicle. I would purchase or lease again.
