Well I needed to replace our Buick and with GM going down the toilet I figures I better move to the Japanese. Spent 3 months looking for a luxury car. Anyway, I walked into the Infiniti dealership here and the friendliness was fabulous. They had an 08 M35x that the manager was driving with 18,000 kms in sandstone. What a beautiful car. We drove it for a day and were hooked. They gave it to me for 20K less than new. They gave me 10K for my Buick and I was stunned. I drove this out of there in mint condition for 30K Canadian. WOW I couldn't buy a v6 accord for that. Driving the car for a month now and am awestruck by the quality. This thing is a tank. Put new Michelin Pilot Pluses on - WOW!
Everything, wicked power.
IPOD connection that allows you to use the screen to navigate with.
I dreamed of getting an M35 for years so you'd think I ran a great risk of being disappointed by such high expectations. Like almost every Christmas which never lives up to my visions. The M is better than I could have imagined. I do wish it got better mileage but my average mpg of 22 combined is just fine for what I am getting to drive.
Wow!! What a fun car to drive. I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment I get into my car. Plenty of passing power, handles like a sport car and I love the firmness of the suspension. This is truly a luxury sports sedan for a person not looking to buy a 2-dr sports car. Everything I am looking for in a sports sedan. The interior is beautiful and everything is laid out nicely. Plenty of room front and back. Did I mentioned the car handles awesome? I love the way the car look... very clean!!
None, only mild complaint is gas mileage, but I am not worried about putting premium gas. It's a luxury sports sedan, just got to drive it like one.
For what would otherwise be an under-powered luxury sports sedan that is an excellent value, the steering issue called tramlining makes the M35X an unsafe highway car. Everything else is wonderful: comfort, electronics, etc.
Right after Thanksgiving my local dealer was having a big sale and I bought an 08 M35X. Drove it home in a snow storm and the all wheel drive is excellent. The command center is filled with everything you can imagine. Jukebox, Ipod integration, satellite radio, CD. Rides out great. Very luxurious interior and the 3.5 really moves when you need to. I have only put about 6k on the car so far, but love it. As soon as my wife's lease is up on her car she wants the G37x.
Nav system, Music studio, back up camera and the heated and cooled seats.
The only thing I wish the car had was the self locking feature for when you take off - the doors should lock automatically. With the Infiniti's they do not do that. The turn signals could use some tweaking as well. Unless it is a full 90 degree turn the signals do not go off.
