03 and 04 g35 coupes

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti G35 2dr Coupe w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

4 vehicles in the household, BMW, Infiniti QX4, and 2 G35's - an '03 and '04. Have had many other brands. We have kept our G35's all these years as they are a wonderful blend of performance, appearance, and luxury appointments supported by an outstandingly reliable and safe, fun to drive sporty car with usable back seat and cargo/trunk. The only problems - ever - are minor electrical over 9 and 10 years. Door lock actuators on both cars failed ($150 ea) and radio/climate control head repair ($400) on the '04. Both vehicles have about 70k miles garaged but driven year round including rough Canadian winters. Simply unbeatable combination of value, quality, reliability, luxury and fun.

Best dollar for dollar vehicle

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti G35 4dr Sedan w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

There are known flaws with any vehicle on the market. The 1st gen G35 is known for the AC/Radio control going out, which is not all that big of a deal to have to fix if you know what your doing. With that being said, I bought my 2003 G35 sedan in mid 2012 with 154,000 miles on it. Very high milage for a used car, so I expected to have some problems. The first thing I did was change every drop of fluid in the car, spark plugs, brake pads, wiper blades, ect. to ensure everything would be in good working order, and the car hasnt let me down yet. A respectable 260 HP gets you up and moving to your cruising speed. It has an extremely comfortable cabin with plenty of room for all.

Very fun to drive!

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti G35 4dr Sedan w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Plenty of power and handles very nice. No problems merging on the freeway. What I find interesting or funny is when I accelerate to get up to the speed limit. When I'm at a red light that turns green; cars behind me are always 2-4 car lengths away when I look in the rear view mirror. This is only with my foot very lightly stepping on the gas pedal too. lol I just bought mine used at 101k miles. I have the Emerald Mist Green/Teal color. Very beautiful and custom looking color. It's been getting a lot of attention from people where ever I go. I have people sticking their heads out their window just to see what kind of car it is. I'm glad I found this one. Not bad for a 9 year old car.

Coming up on 9 years

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti G35 2dr Coupe w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

Back in July 2003 when I purchased the Red G35 Coupe MT6 my wife told me it was my 10 year car based on the price. Well here we are at 110,000 miles and it still looks and performs like the day we picked it up. Yes, having a car like this comes with a cost. Tires are certainly one of them along with the periodic window motor/regulator. But getting 23 mpg average and getting 27 mpg on the highway is not bad at all. This is the longest I ever owned a car and to date I can not see another car I'd even want to buy.

Still love my 2003 g35

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti G35 2dr Coupe w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Back in 2002, I was in the market for a new car and had read about the Infiniti G35 sedan. Test drove the sedan and loved it, then saw the photos of the upcoming coupe. I am so glad I waited for the coupe. I purchased mine in October 2002, so it was one of the first G35 coupes sold in my state. It was amazing to drive such a head turner back then, and I love it still. Every time I see it, I recognize again how beautiful it is. I do take care where I park, etc., so it is pristine. Yes, I've had some electrical issues (A/C - stereo control, windows), but for a 9 year old car with 86K miles, it's been a good value. Love my 2003 G35 coupe!

Nice looking car that can

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti G35 2dr Coupe w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I purchased the car with 82K miles and have owned it for a month. I was looking for a reasonably priced car that was sporty and still had a lot of luxury features. My list included the Acura TL, Lexus IS and BMW 3 series. I chose the Infinity mostly based on price. It does have great looks and your not likely to have to pay blue book for one. However, there is a reason for this. These cars feel really cheap. My wife has a 2004 Lexus RX 330 thats one year newer and about 8K less miles. These cars were close to the same price, but the quality is like night and day. The bose stereo system does sound very good and it is fun to drive. I get 14MPG in town driving.
