Much to be Improved Upon
By Zach on


2003 INFINITI I35 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Was a fantastic vehicle until it passed 60k miles. Even with continuous maintenance, it sucks gas, has serious suspension problems, eats through tires, burns oil, the transmission is going, and the muffler has rusted completely off. It now has 68,000 miles on the odometer and has eaten $5000+ in repair costs. It has also left me stranded 1000 miles from home when the TPS (throttle position sensor - once recalled) died. That out of town repair was $1000 alone.

Best Features

Heated steering wheel and Bose Sound System. Not much else.

Worst Features

Has the turning radius of a school bus. Suspension of a 1960s VW Bug. Fuel economy of a tank. Exterior paint quality - one light touch and its dented or chipped. Fix these, it would be an OK daily driver.
