Year: 2007 Make: INFINITI Model: G35
Average raiting 4.6
Purchased used and its has been the perfect blend of reliability, performance, handling and comfort in one package. The Bose stereo and leather seating will please the senses on long hauls, however the smoothness of whacking the shifter through the gears at a rapid pace as the car builds a momentum only distinguished as a swelling sensation, is truly exhilarating. It’s not going to win any MPG awards, but the Smiles Per Gallon (SPG) will be hard to beat. Reliability: No issues thus far Performance: Naturally aspirated 300+ HP with 6sp manual transmission Handling/Comfort: Very well-mannered and but happy to drift with traction control off. Very comfortable and welcoming. Pros: Performance, 6sp manual transmission, handling and appearance Cons: Steering tends to feel a bit heavy for my taste under hard turning, Cup holder in-front of the shifter, Lack of USB inputs (resolved with USB2 GROM for both USB/Bluetooth support)
You absolutely, positively have to replace the shocks when they wear out.
We just bought the car 5 days ago. The power is intoxicating to say the least! Brakes are great. The interior is so much nicer than the 2006 model. The seats have good side bolsters for those spirited backroad jaunts. The fuel mileage is pretty poor at 18 mph average so far. Hopefully it goes up a few more points after break-in period. The ride is similar to the BMW 325is coupe I had a few years back, sporty but not too bumpy. Haven't driven in the snow yet, but I assume the all-wheel drive and the narrower 17 inch tires should be ok. Once the snow is gone, this car will get a set of 18 inch sport wheels and tires. I think the Boxster will stay in the garage until spring!
This car runs great and has excellent acceleration. Unfortunately I've only had the car 4 months and had to replace both passenger and driver power window motors.
Bought the G35 AWD with Premium Pkg, Nav Pkg, Tech Pkg, Rosewood interior, and Splash-guards. The car is awesome. Smooth, powerful drive-train, nice trans (5-spd but that's all you need), tiptronic works great, bluetooth sync'd with no problem to a Sprint Sanyo Katana, excellent sound system, back-up camera is nice to have. Highly recommend the Rosewood interior; without it cheapens the interior. Looked at the the Lexus: IS250, ES350 & GS350 as well as the Acura TL. Evaluating the Infiniti was almost an after-thought. But, for the money and driving experience, the 07 G35 is the standard to beat right now in this class (maybe any class). If looking for a driving experience; look no further.
