1996 INFINITI G20 4dr Sedan


Review

Totally reliable, extremely well-built, easy to park. This car is best vehicle I've owned. Fun to drive and looks great! I bought it originally because it was rated as the most reliable car produced that year and I really liked its handling. It still feels new! The included music system is really well- tuned to the car so its fidelity as well as its base response is very good.


Best Features

Beautiful restrained design, great torque at higher rpm, very good handling, bulletproof reliability.


Worst Features

I had to put in an after-market cup holder! The remote door opener often sets off the alarm because of a poorly designed panic button.

1996 INFINITI G20 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my third G-20. #2 absolutely
destroyed a Sedan De Ville that pulled
out in front of me -- made me a
believer in the structural integrity of
the car. Handles wonderfully, combined
with great ride for extended trips. No
significant unscheduled maintenance in
ten years, 100K mi. Original clutch,
brakes, muffler. Back seat great for
kids.


Best Features

Handles as if on rails. Excellent materials, construction and design. Very tight mechanically. Large trunk, comfortable seats, ride. Good headroom. Trunk hinges don't intrude. Good fuel economy on regular. White Pearl paint is gorgeous, still looks new.


Worst Features

Could use 20 more hp, but with the stick, acceleration is adequate. Would be a bit lame with auto.

Review

Bought it used 16 months ago with 127000
kms(about 80000 miles) on it. Very happy
with the reliability, responsiveness,
acceleration(especially after I put in
a K&N filter), sound system and styling
(still LOVE the look of the car). Gas
consumption could be better, given that
it's Plus(98.5 Octane).


Best Features

Styling Acceleration and cruising speed Manoevrability and responsiveness Sound system


Worst Features

Heater A/C Gas consumption Cloth instead of leather seats

Review

Bought this car new. Since then have
had to replace: rear speakers - twice,
both cv joints, boots and front axles,
positive battery cable harness - twice,
alternator, moon roof motor, front
passenger window motor, drivers window
motor, radio power antenna assebmly. I
am very dissapointed in the repair
rtecord of this car. This is in
addition to normal repairs and
maintenance such as brakes, belts,
hoses, oil anf filter changes. The
depreciation of this car is also
amazing. In about two years it had
lost half of its value.


Best Features

Economical, easy to park.


Worst Features

Design a sun visor that pushes all the way to the windsheild. Reduce the cost of parts.
