Review of the 2007 Infiniti M35

Vehicle: 2007 Infiniti M35 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Car brings everything it has promised, 2 and a half years later. The performance is outstanding. I have had no problems whatsoever with this vehicle. The car accelerates with ease, handles beautifully at high and low speeds and is one of the most enjoyable vehicles I have ever driven. The ESC and lane departure features keep you safer and I love the GPS. Bought my son a Garmin for his car, and still think mine is better. I love the Bluetooth! I can hear everyone and they hear me. Easy to answer, easy to call and again makes the vehicle safer with the hands off. I would buy this car again and recommend it without hesitation.

Bluetooth failure froze console. Nissan, at first refused warranty repair saying my ATT8525 was not on their list. But Bluetooth is a trademark that requires interoperability. Finally they agreed to repair it. This took 4 tries. Then my AC condenser was pierced by a stone. They refused warranty repair because "stone chips" are excluded. This is understandable for paint not for an internal part they should protect with grill work. That's a design defect. Their voice recognition for phone numbers is awful. The gas mileage is lower than a good design could have made it.

Vehicle: 2007 Infiniti M35 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I test drove many other choices before purchasing my Infiniti. The M35 was the only one in this price range to offer such a powerful and gutsy drive. The car drives smooth, brakes well, and feels secure. It is so much fun to drive and the controls were so easy to master. I have not been disappointed.

Vehicle: 2007 Infiniti M35 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Only have 2000 miles on it but am loving it. Gas mileage is terrible but I knew that before purchase. Excellent interior, very impressive. Exterior not as unique but still nice. Very happy with the buy. No other equivalent car at this price point.

This is a great car to own. Very very smooth drive and beautiful interior design. Seating in the buckets seats feel very comfy. The only negative mark is the fragility of the outside body. You should expect a lot scratches and bumps.




Uncomfortable front sport seats

Vehicle: 2007 Infiniti M35 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I have approximately 15,000 miles on an M35 Sport that I purchased in Nov 06. I have been fairly happy with my vehicle except for the front sport seats and fuel economy. The car is fun to drive and has lots of great features. However, the piping / stitching on the upper portion of the front seats hits beneath my shoulder blade causing pain and stiffness to my shoulder and neck. This car should have a 6 speed automatic transmission to help fuel economy. I will not buy another M35 Sport unless it has a 6 speed auto transmission.



Full 2007 Infiniti M35 Review

What's New for 2007

In the wake of last year's redesign, the Infiniti M35 gets only minor changes for 2007. The car's luxury quotient increases with the addition of a standard 10-way power-adjustable passenger seat, a compass and a HomeLink remote transmitter. The car's Technology and Journey packages have been revised, and a new Advanced Package has been added.

Introduction

Le Miroir Deux Faces, or The Mirror Has Two Faces, is the title of an enjoyable 1958 French comedy about a frumpy, unhappy woman who finds herself the center of attention after she undergoes beautification via major plastic surgery. Its plot could just as well have been the life story of Infiniti's original M45 sedan. Though well built and certainly fast, the cruiser simply didn't have the style, features or interior room to turn the heads of luxury car buyers. Infiniti put the car on the operating table for an intensive overhaul, and in 2006, the M was reborn as two stunning, capable, all-new performance sedans -- the M35 and M45.

With its understated good looks, the 2007 Infiniti M35 is attractive, but its appeal isn't merely cosmetic. The car's cabin is decadently spacious, with class-leading amounts of head- and legroom. Still, its accommodations don't quite equal those of competitors like the Audi A6 and Lexus GS 300 in terms of design and materials quality. Most folks, however, should find the M35's interior warm and inviting, bolstered by an extravagant array of standard amenities.

But what makes the Infiniti M35 a true knockout is the power resting beneath its hood. The car is motivated by a brawny 3.5-liter V6 that offers 275 horsepower. It's paired with a five-speed automatic transmission that offers an impeccable degree of responsiveness, making for fun times behind the wheel. Topping things off is a double-wishbone front, multilink rear suspension that doles out just the right mix of compliance and firmness.

If you like your luxury performance sedans heavy on luxury, the 2007 Infiniti M35 isn't your best option. Though pleasant, its cabin simply can't match rivals like the Audi A6 when it comes to chrome-ringed, leather-trimmed glamour. However, if performance and handling are your primary concern, you'll be happy with this Infiniti, which outdistances the competition when the rubber hits the road.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Infiniti M35 is a midsize luxury sport sedan. Buyers have the choice of three trims: base, x AWD and Sport. The base trim's generous standard features list includes leather upholstery, a 10-way power-adjustable driver seat, one-touch up-and-down power windows, dual-zone automatic climate control, wood trim, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated outside mirrors and an in-dash six-CD changer with MP3 playback capability. The x AWD trim adds all-wheel drive and heated and cooled front seats. The Sport trim trades wood accents for aluminum ones and adds rear active steering, sport-tuned suspension, upgraded wheels, adaptive xenon HID headlamps and front sport seats with larger bolstering.

Various option packages offer features such as a navigation system, a center-console-mounted DVD player, rearview camera, adaptive cruise control (which automatically adjusts your speed to maintain a selected following distance), a lane departure warning system, reclining/heated rear seats and a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system.

Powertrains and Performance

The M35 features a 3.5-liter V6 that pumps out 275 hp and 268 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic with automanual capability and downshift rev-matching is standard. The car is offered in both rear- and all-wheel-drive versions. An M35x AWD we tested sprinted to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds and ran the quarter-mile in 14.9 seconds. The V8-powered M45 hit 60 in 5.7 seconds and completed the quarter in 14.4 seconds.

Safety

Standard on the M35 are antilock disc brakes (with brake assist), stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and active head restraints for the front seats. An available lane departure warning system alerts the driver of unintended lane drifting. In IIHS crash tests, the M35 luxury sport sedan scored a "Good" rating -- the highest possible -- for both frontal and side impact protection.

Interior Design and Special Features

The 2007 Infiniti M35's interior is well appointed and features leather seating and Brazilian Rosewood trim (aluminum with the Sport model). Its firm seats are highly adjustable, comfortable and heavily bolstered. Overall, the M's interior is well-built and attractive. However, the bar is raised pretty high in this category (which is, after all, home to cars like the Audi A6), and the M35's interior isn't quite as elegant and thoughtfully designed as that of others in its class. Relative to its rivals, materials quality is a bit spotty, and the layout of the center stack controls isn't as clean and intuitive as we'd like.

Driving Impressions

Though not as athletic as the V8-equipped M45, the M35's V6 still provides plenty of punch for most drivers. Braking performance is impressive, and a firmly tuned suspension provides excellent balance in the corners. The trade-off is steering that can feel a bit raw around town and a suspension that sharpens road irregularities, especially in the firm Sport model. When experienced on the highway, the car also exhibits a fair degree of engine and road noise. These flaws certainly don't make the 2007 Infiniti M35 uncomfortable to ride in, but it is noticeably less serene than others in its class.
