2007 Infiniti G35 Sport: Vastly Improved Clutch
February 01, 2008
There it is, folks. Where the magic happens. The 2007 Infiniti G35 Sport with a six-speed manual is now officially perfect. As our dedicated blog readers know, we all pretty much love the G35, EXCEPT for the clutch...
The only car that we dedicated professional drivers still manage to stall, some of us with more than 20 and 30 years of driving under our belts. It's always "Great car, fast, stylish, beautiful. Except for that $*%&# CLUTCH!"
Well during a recent service we discovered that there was a slave-cylinder recall and Infiniti promptly fixed it. Good for them. Big ups to Infiniti for stepping up to make this car even better. The G35 is now officially phenomenal. I have always loved it, but the past few nights, I have essentially driven it from our Santa Monica office the scant mile or so to my palatial Santa Monica estate. Last night I drove it in rush-hour traffic (the true test of a p.i.a. clutch) and found it to be absolutely pleasant. Of course, the 10 p.m. return trip was the real reason I drove it. Oh baby! LOVE this car. So much so that my bass player wants the sedan (his wife has an '06 G35 coupe) and I already encouraged an old friend up north to lease a G35 sedan (and he loves it also).
