1994 Infiniti G20 4dr Sedan


Review

What a car! I bought this as my commuter vehicle years ago and it has since been driven by my wife and 3 of my children. It is comfortable, peppy enough, very sophisticated (for its vintage), and still turns heads. I cannot believe how it has aged--people with little GM's can't believe their cars are 10-12 years newer! Yes, this car was billed as a "Japanese BMW" and indeed I would concur--but I'll bet a Bimmer would not be running like this 15 years later. If you find one of these babies, buy it--they are becoming quite rare.


Favorite Features

style, handling, limited slip diff.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe a little more power--but whither the gas mileage? It's almost a perfect vehicle.

Review

I bought my G20t (the touring package) in 1993 as a loaner car with 6K miles on it. Buying my G20t was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It just turned over 160K miles (11/2006,) & I still love to drive it. The ride is smooth. The leather is top quality and still looks brand new. It is not perfect. The flaw that annoys me to this day is it has no cupholders, & Infiniti wants $100 to install them. Pleeeeease! The lights for the temperature buttons are not displaying consistently. The biggy is that there are 2 oil leaks that will cost about $800+ to fix. The leaks don't affect the performance or safety so I just keep adding oil. I plan to drive it until is stops.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride. Excellent quality leather. Reliable. Beautiful paint (garaged most of its life) This engine is sure to last 250K or more! Touring package - Black leather, tighter suspension - Its a dream to drive. Get about 25 MPG with fwy/street combo


Suggested Improvements

Cupholders Other than that, it's been a joy to drive for 13 years.

Review

My car is 12 years old, so I expect parts to be in need of replacement. But it seems there are too many parts going wrong within the length of a year. First, the two oxygen sensors went out April 2005; Second, the catalytic converter must be replaced to install the o2 sensor; Third, one fuel injector needs to be replaced, October 2005. The labor is a lot higher than the new injector; Fourth, the windshield cracked. This probably happened on highway. December 2005. A $300 replacement; Fifth, the A/C went out May 2006. A $500 repair. In a word, the well-reputed reliability of Nissan/Infiniti seems open to question. The performance of the car is no fun. Miserable acceleration. Engine noise.


Favorite Features

Power seat, power window, power mirror, leather seats, nice look.


Suggested Improvements

At the lights, this car starts like a turtle while all other cars spring like rabits. And it is a manual, supposedly to accelerate faster.

Review

I've owned this infiniti for only 6 mts, yet I had a 95 for over 3 years. Very fun car to drive. The T model includes all the options you may ever want, there's not too many out there on the road, and for a 4 cylinder engine, this 2.0 Liter SR20DE is really top of the line. Unfortunately they are no longer in the US. The nissan primera (as it is known in Europe, Japan) last year for the US was 2002... I don't know what I'll do once I have to switch my car. :(


Favorite Features

Unique design... ALL features (power seats, windows, etc) VERY confortable, the leather seats are great, and of course, the SR20DE engine, which can be easily upgraded.


Suggested Improvements

Well.. it doesn't have a cupholder, and unfortunately, the SR20DE in its stock form is not very fast.. 140 hp with about 136 torque.. Still good for a 4 cyl car though. A/C sucks even more power away. Overal, it is excellent, the good far outweighs the bad

Review

I have the 5 speed manual and it was my first car. It is very reliable and enjoyable to drive everyday. I had a problem with the power steering hose and had to get it replaced but other than that, its good.


Favorite Features

Drive quality, size, comfort, handeling, decent power


Suggested Improvements

more power.

Review

I've ran this car at the tracks stock... The best time i had was a 16.6 quarter mile time. After I added an intake, full pipe exhaust, and an ignition system, I dropped almost a full second (15.7) Just wanted to say that this car is the most reliable car out there, because if it's still kickin after the way I drive it... it's build to last!!!


Favorite Features

SR20DE engine... Don't be fooled just because it's only 140hp... there's hidden power in there... if you know how to drive it.


Suggested Improvements

Looks... the rear looks booty as hell... but they changed that in the newer models

Review

I got a '94 G20 Touring Edition from a little old man who didn't realize what a gem he was getting rid of. I was somewhat new to the Infiniti...but loved the way it drove & looked. Although I dont put a huge amt. of miles on it... Since 1994 it has never left me stranded... parts are easily accessible as well...unlike other "high end" foreign vehicles. This one has 75,000 miles on it & from what i've read on these other reviews.. mine has a long way to go before its past its prime! I highly recommend this car.


Favorite Features

moonroof, spoiler package


Suggested Improvements

CUP HOLDERS!!!!! but I think they've remedied that with the newer models.

Review

I bought this car used in 1999. It's the perfect college car so far. It has taken a beating, but it has had no major problems to date. Just regular fix-ups (tires, brakes, half-shafts, battery, etc.). My only issues with this car is very little torque and a long shift throw. Not a big deal considering what you get (no relationship is perfect). If you are looking at used cars, this is a GREAT buy.


Favorite Features

Infiniti means "luxury" to friends, but can replace parts with regular Nissan parts. Gas mileage is great. Rides nice. Roomy enough for 5. Easy to maintain. Fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

More horsepower, more torque, minimize road-noize. Again, these are minor considering what you get with the car.
