2007 Infiniti G35 Sport: Further Testing Required
January 31, 2008
I recently had the good fortune to return to my favorite place in my Edmunds life: the driver seat of the 2007 Infiniti G35 Sport. What a spectacular machine! The clutch issue has definitely been significantly improved, although the action is no less responsive. The engine note is still a magnificent rumble, the driver seat is firm and supportive, the steering is bowstring tight, the doors close like a vault, and damn I LOVE the way the thing looks...
And the stunning acceleration as those 306 horses gallop away just under my right foot: magnificent.
Now, if any of my fellow editors are reading this: The car stinks. It's absolutely terrible, it's obscenely dangerous and unsafe, and I can't say anything good about it. In fact, for the good of all of my beloved co-workers, I am volunteering to throw myself in harm's way each and every night for the next few months and continue to test and report on this car myself. I just can't let any of you drive it, in any sort of good conscience. It's for your own good.
That's just what kind of stand-up cat I am.
