Review of the 2002 Infiniti G20

  • A Sentra masquerading at the Infiniti ball. Wait for the upcoming G35 sport sedan.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sharp handling, Infiniti customer service, attractive styling.

  • Cons

    Weak four-cylinder engine, Sentra-like feel and interior space, fills a niche nobody asked to be filled.

  • What's New for 2002

    A Sport package featuring a body-color grille, dark tint headlight trim and 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels debuts this year, as do two new exterior colors -- Silver Crystal and Maui Blue. The G20t, as Infiniti dubs the Touring package-equipped model, disappears this year.

Dependable car

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Infiniti G20 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

I bought this car about seven months ago with 120,000 miles. I had to replace some parts but the car is a good car for the price.




Trash car

Vehicle: 2002 Infiniti G20 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

I bought this car seven months ago with 103k miles. In seven months I have spent about $3,00 in this car. I had to replace tie rods, drive belts, automatic transmission, engine mounts, rotors,leaks, muffler, resonator, etc. This car is a piece of trash.




Transmission went at 30,000

Vehicle: 2002 Infiniti G20 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Despite being well taken care of, the transmission failed at 30,000 miles in 2008. Cost me $4 grand. Dealer said it wasn't covered. Couldn't fight them as I was going through a health crisis. Mechanics and transmission dealer said they never saw anything like it. Still pretty upset about losing that much money on such a low mileage car.

Amazing value

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Infiniti G20 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Just hit the 60k mark and loving it. I bought the car 6 months ago with 52k. As this is my first car, I didn't think I would be able to afford this nice of a car. The only problems I have had with the car are: the power antenna, and the stock rims being bent. 2 months after the purchase of the car, I blew a tire on the highway because of the rims. Replaced the rims and tires with more sporty ones and everything was good. About a week ago, my ABS light came on and my rear breaks locked up. I took it to the mechanic and had to replace the calipers, and break pads. The exhaust needs to be replaced, but I am holding off until after winter. The only thing the car needs is a bracket for the muffler

Love to drive

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Infiniti G20 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I fell in love with my G before I even bought it. Just after seeing it in 2001, I drove it right off the showroom floor and it hasn't disappointed me yet! This car is classy yet sporty and a great performer for the 4-cyl class. Solid engineering and esthetically pleasing. Still looks great today even among newer vehicles. Cons? Cup holders are inefficient. Passenger seat adjustment in the sport edition isn't automatic. My son grew up in this car and will inherit it in 2 yrs; it makes me nervous that he won't love it as much as I do.

Gem of a car!

Vehicle: 2002 Infiniti G20 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Why get a Civic, Lancer, or Corolla when you can get a G20? With the G20, you get much more for your dollar - power windows, power mirrors, leather interior, moonroof, etc. People will argue that the G20 has a low resale value compared to the other models. Who cares? If you want to get an affordable used car that you intend to use for many years to come, resale value does not matter. All you should care about is reliability and in that area, the G20 is a real keeper. I'm not being biased, but I read so many great things about the G20's SR20DE engine. I dare say that the SR20DE is tougher than the competitors' engines. And since the G20 is built in Japan, no need to worry about quality.

The 2000 G20 is driven about 90% by my wife, and only about 7000 miles per year. In my opinion, the 4 cylinder 145 HP engine in completely adequate for this car (we have automatic). When I do drive ...

Yup... the G20 (and quite a few other cars) would currently be under powered in comparison to the cars dangei listed. The G20 does share it's engine with the Sentra SE but not much else. The G20 is mu...

Like you, I would like to see Infiniti keep the G20 and give it a little more power. I've driven a few of these for loaners when I've had my Q in for service, and they are fun cars....
