Review of the 2005 Infiniti G35

  • Fast, stylish and relatively affordable, the rear-drive G35 sedan and the coupe offer high levels of performance and luxury.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V6, balanced and capable handling, roomy cabin, reasonable price.

  • Cons

    Average interior materials quality, touchy brakes.

  • What's New for 2005

    The sedan receives exterior styling revisions with a new hood, grille, bumpers, side sills, taillights and wheels. Sedans now make as much power as the coupes -- 280 hp (up from 260) and 270 lb-ft of torque (also up from 260) on models with an automatic transmission. Coupes and sedans equipped with a manual transmission get even more power (298 hp) but sacrifice 10 lb-ft of torque. Sedans with the sport suspension package also pick up 18-inch wheels and drilled aluminum pedals. All G35s get a redesigned instrument panel and console area with aluminum or wood trim, and the manual transmission has been improved to provide a lower shifting effort. A Sport version of the coupe debuts this year and includes an even firmer suspension, a limited-slip differential, 19-inch forged alloy wheels and drilled aluminum pedals. Oddly, though, Brembo brakes are no longer available on manual-shift coupes.

Not up to standards

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I've owned this car since it was new, and I've not been happy with it for a while. The tires don't last, the interior wears quickly (not that it looked that spectacular in the first place), the radio is less than user friendly, the paint is inferior and the road noise is simply unacceptable in a car that costs this much. Actually the road noise is worse than in my son's Toyota pick up truck or my wife convertible. And the turning radius is inferior to those vehicles as well, despite what edmunds or any other website might tell you. Not a fan of the traction/stability control - almost got me hit a few times by hitting the brakes and killing the accelerator. I now drive without it.

Simply amazing..

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

If you want a sports car with a luxury feel, get the G35 coupe. This car is simply awesome. It isnt overly common like the BMW 3 series, but it handles just as great. It is very pretty to look, and then again it isn't in the shop every other week like my old A4. My one gripe with this car would have to be the fuel economy, if your lucky you'll avg about 20mpg for a tank, compared to the 30 of the A4. But then again somthing needs to fuel that monster. You step on the pedal and your flying, before i bought this car i drove the IS250,325CI,A4, and C230. The G blows all of them away. It gives you much more power(that is much more reliable) then all of its competitors and for a lower price.

My infiniti g35 coupe

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Okay, so this car is amazing. First of all, I bought this for a good price. It's an 05 Infiniti G35 coupe. It's got dual exhaust which brings the horse power to 285. Great on highways, very loud. Leather interior touch screen GPS built in. I have a 70.000 mile warranty on her :) Brakes are great. This car has so much power I can't even go an hour without driving her. I got a Blue one with a cream strip. The engine is perfect and the alarm on it is great. If someone even gets close to my car my remote will tell me to go out and check it, so high tech! I highly recommend this car, classy sexy and with the perks of a nice fast sports car. You won't regret it!




Still new, but should be

Ok, I've only had it for a very short period but the car is really fun to drive. Aside from the sub-par Bose stereo display and poor functioning rear-view mirror, I would have to say that I am happy that I chose this over the 05 GTO.

Car is a joy to drive. Acceleration and handling are superb. Styling is eye-catching. I did not buy the wing. It looks like an ironing board left on the trunk Trunk is small, but not tiny. Plan to buy snow tires in the northern states. High performance and rear wheel drive make for a slippery car with wide tires. I smile every morning when I see the car.




Lovin' it

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I got my G35 for my college graduation present and I LOVE IT! Its just beautiful to look at. I like driving it too! Mine is silver/ grey interior w/ sport package. The sport package is a plus because the 18' wheels are nice. I like how the car hugs the road around corners and is definitely a head turner. I've had my car for 3.5 months and I already have 4,000 miles. Had a small problem with the cup holder but my Infiniti dealer got me a new one. Troncalli Infiniti in Atlanta where I got my car was great but I recently visited Infiniti of Nashville and the service was horrible. Plus they charged me $50 for just an oil change. Other then that, I'm lovin' my car.
