Very Reliable, never had to use the warranty. You will eventually get used to the stock 298hp. Add a turbo or Supercharger and these cars are the best bang for the buck reliable luxury sports car available for under 30k! Getting in and out of the back seat is not really intended for adults, but thats not why your reading this review is it? My Vortech supercharged G35 gets 18mpg city 23mpg highway, really good for 400+hp and its just about stock mpg! (Depends on how you drive)
2006 A/T coupe. Purchased in 4/09 for $23K with 27K miles. Since it's important to know what kind of person is writing the review: 24 years old, no kids, fresh out of college, girlfriend and no house payments. Also have a 95 Acura Integra 2dr. This car is perfect for anyone looking for an amazing sports car that is a great everyday driving vehicle. This thing handles and performs so well that I was able to keep up with two friends on sport bikes on a twisty back road. I researched cars for months trying to find something that was what I wanted for a reasonable price. I looked in to the Audi, BMW 3 and Lexus IS 250. This car for the price won hands down.
PERFORMANCE!!! Handles, great, amazing brakes, more power then you need, Exhaust note, Intelligent Key (best tech ever), comfortable seats that hug you (although I am 5'8 165 lbs, so take that into consideration), Exterior looks get peoples attention. Bluetooth phone, memory seats and BOSE audio.
Like everyone says gas mileage is poor, I am getting about 21 mpg with 40/60 city to highway driving. Trunk space is poor, but I can fit a golf bag among other things. I have heard tire wear is an issue but have only had the car for 2 months and the tires are new.
I've had this car for about a year now and I still love it. This car is not for everyone. If you typically drive SUVs or Accords you will hate this car. If you are an enthusiast you will never want to get out of it. Some people may have only bought it because of its sexy look and are not people who want a driver's car. It has loud tires, stiff ride and is small. In return you get a car with tight, predictable handling and a sweet exhaust note that will always put a smile on your face.
Styling, exhaust note, tight handling with excellent body control, powerful engine, LSD, shift action (the only car I have driven that I like better is the S2000), gage cluster that adjusts with steering wheel, clear and crisp Bose system, anchor like brakes
Tire noise, heavy (though it still handles well), poor bass response from Bose, chews through (very expensive) tires, interior rattles, uncommon tire sizes (a Nissan signature), no audio player inputs, orange interior lights, slow front seat position return
I got this car after my 2006 Audi TT 225 Quattro's transmission died 3 times in one month. I bought it because I liked the new nissan 6cyl altima coupe. This was just as nice and was a large percent cheaper. I have owned saab, Audi and many other euro cars. For the price this car gives great performance looks and reliability. I put hankook ipike snow tires on it and I have powered through some of the worst new England snow storms this winter with ease. All in all when this car is dead I will most likely get another or go to the G37. I love this car!
Comfort, power, reliability, and the pure joy of driving this car. Man I love this car!
Harder paint (scratches easy), different display color, maybe blue. I just don't like orange
I bought my G35 coupe in July. It has the 19" wheels, sports package, bluetooth, Bose, black leather with aluminum trim interior, and silver exterior. The day I drove into work it got noticed among all the BMWs, Lexus and Mercedes. G35s are unique and sleek looking cars, clearly standouts. After six months of driving in summer, fall and winter weather my rating is AWESOME! Smooth and quick acceleration, throaty exhaust, tight handling. I look for opportunities to drive this on curvy backroads and passing cars just for the thrill. Who the heck buys a sports car for gas mileage? Windows down, sun-roof back and Bose blaring is the life. One annoyance-seat belt keeps coming out of guid
