Used 2003 INFINITI G35 Luxury 4dr Sedan w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 6M) Consumer Reviews
I just bought my car used about 2 weeks ago. It had 44k miles on it and it was originally a lease car from 04/02. I already love this car! When searching for cars, I gave my wife a list of features I was looking for in a used car. I actually went to the car lot to purchase a Lexus GS300 I saw on their website. But on my way to look at it, I stopped to look at the G35 sitting next to it. I really loved the sports sedan look and feel of the car. And once I drove it, I was sold. From the one touch up & down features of each window to the auto to manual stick, this car easily fulfilled my wish list! My only complaint was that the car needed brake service and the dealer took $500 off. Cost $700
We bought the 03 g35 for 23,000 fully loaded with navigation system, tinted windows. The car is the nicest and fastest four door i have ever driven. My wife loves it. I bought it because we needed a four door and my wife is young and she still wanted a car with speed and comfort with safety for my son.
Purchased my one owner 2003, silver on black, 6-speed, with sport suspension in December '08. Flew to Ohio to check it out and was sold. Had 113,000 when purchased and now 138,000 1 1/2 years later. Only maintenance performed are oil changes/brakes,rotors,tires. Most needed replacing when purchased for 8,300 and valued around 10,500 at the time. The acceleration is much stronger than my mothers '03 Acura TL. Also the RWD makes for better handling in dry conditions, and in rain is not bad compared to the Acura. Don't bother taking out in snow. The clutch is original and still feels sporty as if it were new. However, when it rains the moisture causes the clutch to make unpleasant squeeks.
I guess I got the bad seed of the bunch. Most every problem that a person has listed here mainly brakes squealing and rattling noises in dash and other areas I have experienced in my 2003 G35 Sedan. I got the premi/sport pack. I bought new aftermarket tires and wheels (Goodyear) and apparently this car does not do well with aftermarket tires and wheels. I had the worst ride ever going past 60MPH. You can feel the shaking from the ground up. Took it back to the co. I bought the tires from 6 times and then Infiniti decided to help out. The Brakes squeak every time I touch them. Very annoying. The dealer at this moment is looking for me another used Infiniti G35.
Fun Car, no problems and I just passed 50k with the car. Brakes make a lot of dust on the wheels upfront. I have every option but the nav and think the sport package(if you can find one with it) is worth the money. The car has strong, albeit touchy brakes at low speed. Gas mileage is not stellar but not bad either. Fun car on the highway as it has a big top end (mph). Paint is soft, so don't spend time in drive through car washes. Handling can be twitchy. Even with the VDC on you can throw the back end out into a powerslide without a lot of effort. It is very controllable and makes me think this would be the ideal 4dr drift car with the Limited slip my car has. Ditch the summer sport tires.
