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.

I love this car!!!

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

I just bought this car yesterday and I LOVE IT! I have been looking at Infiniti's for over 2 years and am glad I stayed with them. This car has power beyond dreams, comfort and style along with elegance and class. I only wish tinted windows were part of the package but I will be taking it in on Monday! I have driven a Durango for the last 6 years so the mileage isn't a huge issue and the power makes it well worth it!




Great enthusiasts car!

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

I purchased this G35 4 DR 6M sedan privately in 2006. I had been watching the reviews through the magazines and was really impressed with the style, quality and performance for the money. When I drove the car in a road test, I was sold. It had 24,000 km. I have now driven it for over 3 years and still love every time I sit in the seat. It now shows 82,000 km on the clock and I have not had any significant issues to deal with. Sure the mileage isn't great, but it didn't buy it for its economy; but more for its performance and agility. Turn off the VDC (vehicle dynamic control) and you can turn this docile elite sedan into an adrenaline rush of acceleration. I love it as do passengers.

I just picked up one of these with the sports package, being a Toyota and Lexus owner for years I wanted a new drive experience, These G35's perform well, very fast and just a great feeling of quality, Bose system sounds great.

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

I've owned three BMWs - two 3-series and a 5-series - and drive hard; my 5-series had the Dinan Stage 2 kit in it. Got tired of maintaining BMWs. Wish I had done it two cars ago. Infiniti has tons of power, handling is excellent, car is so solid in feel. If you have $50K for a BMW 550i and $3K a year to maintain it, ok, but the G35 is very, very damn close for 40% less money. Lows: Brakes are not quite up to what I am used to. Bose stereo is a disappointment. The suspension is smooth, but not as composed as a BMW over rough pavement. Highs: Power. Engine has a great sound. The design is well thought out. Good back seat space/comfort. Inexpensive maintenance compared to a German car.




Nice and sporty entry level

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

I bought this vehicle after I totaled my 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse. I wanted something very nice but not too expensive considering I was only going to finance something for about 3 years (I didn't want to keep my next car very long). I ultimately decided on a used luxury car and found this. It is a great car. It is fast, very comfortable, drives smoothly, luxurious, and actually gets ok gas mileage. I like it much better than my Eclipse. Drives amazing at 66,000 miles.




50,000 miles - no major

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti G35 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

I purchased my G35 in June 07 with 29k miles. Since then, I added 22k more miles, with few troubles. First, the tires I have are great, and I just rotated them, yesterday, after 22k miles. I don't think I will change them until they have close to 40k on them. They are definitely NOT OEM. Second, I had a funny scrunching noise in the suspension, possibly the shocks/struts. The dealership replaced this free of charge under warranty (though I still hear some of the same sound - revisiting dealer!). Third, I had a dummy light come on 2 weeks ago, which the manual said was low tire pressure. I inflated the, the light went away! Its fast, a little bumpy, very sexy, and it makes me happy!
