- This car is awesome, drives on rails handles excellent anyone who does'nt like is a idiot.
- everyone is jealous of her.
I have driven my infinity g35 sportcoupe. for a couple weeks now. I own a couple 510's. a maxima and I have driven every car out there. I sell cars. The infinity drives beautifully and is not a altima. But rather a classier version of the 350z. The idiot who wrote the car is slow. oblivously cannot drive. When I bury the pedal I eat M3's and porsche 911 turbos. The reason the idiot said it pulls to the right is called low end torque. I love the car. And I'm a carguys car guy. Much love Dennis At Nissan....read morehide

- Great C/P value,good trim quality.It's a boosted Z in some ways.
- Comfort in 2nd row should better,routine meters&console.
Infiniti present us a nice power,elegance,comfort&convenient sportscar.But just like a versatile person,what skill is above all?It's a big lesson.
Oh,there's another thing.Can you(Infiniti) replace these switch&buttons? It looks not good enough.

- good looking car since adding ground effects system
- 6 speed worst Ive ever had very noisy
This 6 speed transmission must have been designed by a rookie engineer as there is far to much end float on the input shaft & this is why its so noisy.Infiniti refuse to rectify the problem.They changed the design for the 2005.Interesting I guess they didnt want to own up that there was a problem.Terrible company to deal with for warranty I will not buy another one because of the lack of customer service...read morehide

- 40 mph to 120 mph its a rocket
- 0-40 mph its lunch for a WRX Subaru
Great mid range to top end power. Fantastic handling and brakes.
Great sleeper car. Prepare to embarass a Porsche. BMW (any model) is no competition.

- Styling, Great and forgiving handling, Comfortable, Brembo brakes
- smallish trunk, could use more rear headroom...if possible without ruining the lines
I have owned a 2004 6 speed coupe for just over two years and have driven 20,000 miles...and still Love It. I ordered the car as a base model because I did not want a sunroof. Since I was getting a 6 speed, that still meant I got the leather, heated seats, and most all the other toys... and only priced out at $33,550. But nothing is perfect.
First the looks which are what attracted me first. There are no added on panels to add shape to a boring design. No extra creases or body lines to added "interest". No Bangle like features to make the car ugly�classic BMW fans know what I mean. There is nothing extra that is non-functional like scoops on Mustangs. No monocle head lights like on the New Eclipse. The perfectly proportioned smooth lines of the body speak for themselves. Beauty that is also functional with zero lift aerodynamics that will also allow you to travel down the interstate without being buffeted by wind whipping into the opened side windows.
Second...the performance. You will always find a faster car no matter what you drive, but the quarter mile in about 14.1 at about 100mph is fine for me. And with the torque V-6..270ft/lbs and 280 hp you don't have to always drive it like you stole it....aka rev the crap out of it. You can make 90 degree city corners in third gear if you like...putt putt around in sixth gear at 40mph if you like. Drive through the mountain interstate roads or pass without downshifting. It seems practically impossible to bog down the motor. But if you want to shift, the motor will scream to about 6000rpm and then continue to the 6400 redline. And the exhaust note is fabulous, though I could deal with it being even a bit louder just to hear it better from inside the car. The shifter has a short throw and is very precise. I find mine to be very easy to shift, but others may say it is too notchy and you can feel it vibrating. I say HELLO it is a sports car and the shifter is directly attached to the transmission...its called feel. My mileage is usually about 19-20mpg in the city and 26-27 on the highway.
Third the handling and brakes. Michelin Pilot Sports have fantastic grip in dry conditions, very good in the wet, and loud when they are worn. I replaced all four at 17500 miles with Pilots again. I feel they are worth the money for a maximum performance SUMMER tire. The car will be scary if not unusable in the snow until you get snow tires. From many reports the car is good in the snow with the proper tires. I did a track day at Sebring and the car proved stable and forgiving to mistakes. The Brembos are incredible looking and much more importantly slow the car quickly and consistently with minimal fade. On the street they are not as grabby as the stock Nissan brakes and are easier to modulate. A few have complained that they squeal a bit and mine did as well, but a couple of quick stops to re-bed the brakes and it went away.
Fourth the interior...comfortable, attractive, not too many gadgets and you don't need a book to learn how everything works. There is a lot of headroom with no sunroof...even my helmet clears the roof. I find the seats very comfortable, the steering wheel is nice and thick and a bit smaller than average for what I have driven. There is good visibility and has delivered comfortable 13 hour drives. The folding rear seat offers a large cargo area if only 2 are traveling or 8 foot lengths of copper piping, or skies, or a few 2x4�s. But... the leather has not worn quite as well as I would like. There is a dark line where my belt lands and you can tell where the leather ends and the vinyl starts on the sides and back of the seats.
Lastly the car has been very reliable so far and the service at my local dealership has been terrific. I would and have recommended this car to anyone wanting a sports car that is reliable, comfortable, quick, and somewhat practical....read morehide

- Nice looks. Nice engine.
- Cheap interior, worst in class. Rough and small for a big coupe. Its a Nissan skyline,
They should have kept this thing named a Nissan b/c its not really a luxury car. Its swift, handles well and looks good. The interior quality is crap and fit and finish is average and why are all the controls on teh wrong side of hte car?
Nice car but not a luxury one

- Not that much just looks good
- Its got to be the worst ridden car of all time...it shakes it makes noise pieces fall off the dash
It drifts to the right i mean comon and it wears the tiers down. I mean if it were faster it would be alright but damn its slow off the line. 280 hp should make it go alot faster then it is.

- That sound when starting up is to die for!! Very aesthetically pleasing. Corners like it's on rails
- Blind spots are horrible, Seatbelt is positioned weird, No Memory seats, rear seat entry
Just hit 2000 miles. No problems besides the ones mentioned above. Have so far averaged 19 MPG. The 19s make for a stiff ride but the tradeoff when cornering is so worth it. IF you can break the rear loose, the oversteering is very predictable. Steering is 2nd only to BMW. In terms of feeling the road thru the steering wheel, If BMW is a 10, this G35 6MT is like a 9.6 This makes for very spirited precise driving even in a decreasing radius corner.
I've read that people complain that brakes are a bit touchy. These people are obviously used to drinking a mochachino and reading a paper in their SUV driving thru a Lexus commercial. These brakes have good initial bite and a re very linear. What you would expect from a SPORTS CAR!!
The Bose system is as you expect - Very Bassy.
All the common luxury items are there (except for the memory seats, passenger mirror reverse and bumper sensor for those that want such amenities)...read morehide
