Horrible money pit

2002 INFINITI I35 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Purchased this car with 80,000 miles on it and odometer now reads 111,500. Since that time, check engine light came on, needed to replace radiator (it cracked), temperature gauge (it broke), left rear brake caliper (it seized). Suspension is the worst, pretty much intolerable. The engine has the most obnoxious clunking I have ever heard. Was recently told the muffler and catalytic converter will need to be replaced asap as these do not pass inspection. This car is a money pit when it comes to gas and repairs and the performance is disgraceful for the infiniti name. Will be purchasing a Honda/Acura and will never consider a Nissan/infiniti in the future.

Best Features

Bose sound system, 6 disc CD changer (when it decides to work), sun shade, fold down seats, wood grain interior.

Worst Features

The suspension and exhaust systems. The gas mileage is insane. I know trucks that get better mpg than this gas hog.
