As for gas mileage...it's a performance car and I average 20 mpg in mixed hwy and city and about 24 to 25 mostly hwy @ 80mph. I think thats awesome!!! I have had it for 10,000 miles. I have not had it in the snow yet but look forward to it. I forgot to mention on a recent 600 mile trip, I was very comfortable. A true pleasure to drive anywhere, anytime and any distance. I am 6' 215lbs....read morehide

I upgraded from my 2001 Honda Accord V6. The finalist in my search were the Acura TL and the Infiniti G35 sedan. I went with the G because I got a better deal and I have not regretted it for a second. The car's design is sexy (esp with the 19" chrome rims I added later). I drives like a dream. I love to sound system with bluetooth and the key fob design for start, door lock and trunk release. I have averaged between 19-21 mpg depending on how much I travel with my job. I had two warrany issues (tire pressure monitor and rear seat belt) and I have never dealt with a service department as outgoing, friendly and customer oriented as Infiniti. Quick work, free loaner car, courtesy calls. I was impressed.
In short, if you are looking for a sporty, sexy car you will love to drive, it is hard to find a better value than the G!...read morehide

- FUN FUN FUN. Great Looking, Great Performance, Lot's of WOW factor.
- Radio is Ok. Fuel Economy is not great, but I knew that getting the car.
I got the last 2006 off the lot. It's a G35 White Pearl sedan with the luxury package. I love the keyless entry and driver entry and exit assist. The bluetooth works great. I can even sit in the back seats for a long trip and I'm 6 foot tall. The performance is great. I test drove the Cadillac CTS, Acura TL, BMW 3, and several other cars. The BMW could take it but that's about it. The TL was fast but had a harsh sports car ride. The CTS is smooth but does not have the get up and goooo the G has. The BMW was a good choice also but the price was much higher.
Overall, I love my G. I've had it for a month now and no problems yet. First tank of gas got me around 19mpg.
If your looking for a sports car that you can take the family in, I highly recommend the G35. I love mine!!!...read morehide

- Fast, smooth, luxurious, convenient
- Design could be a little better, don't like the shape of the headlights.
I really feel the designers of this car thought about all of the little things which is what impresses me most. I can brag about the speed, handling, comfort, and convenience of this car, but you'll read about that in every review because it's simply true. What's more important to know about this car are the little features that it comes with, features most people wouldn't think about. IE: The one touch on all windows, the seat and steering wheel moving every time I get out of my car to make it easier for exiting and re-entry, the one touch moon roof, the positioning and mobility of the air vents. No car in it's class compares, especially for the price. This car has everything you've ever thought a luxury car should have and more....read morehide

- good brakes, solid body structure
- no low end torque, uncomfortable driver's seat
I bought an '06 G35 sedan last fall and after a few months I couldn't wait to get rid of it. The test drive was impressive: the car has loads of horsepower--step on it and it really screams!--and the brakes felt the best of any car I'd driven.
Living with the car for day to day use was another matter. No low end torque to speak of, so it feels anemic when you're just running around town & you don't want to put your foot into it. The automatic transmission is the slipperiest I've ever driven (possibly to accomodate the gutless low end). Power and gearing are such that many four-cylinder econoboxes feel more confident. The car tracks well, but the handling response is sluggish compared with the better German cars; in no way is this car's handling in the same league as BMW's.
Then there's the driver's seat: both in contours and position, this seat was MISERABLE. It's too narrow, and even at its lowest setting my head was still nearly touching the ceiling (I'm 5'8").
There were a few minor issues I probably could have learned to live with like the climate control with a mind of its own, but at the end of 3 months I'd enjoyed it about as much as I could stand and sold it. I hope the new owner likes it better than I did....read morehide

- The engine is pure joy, performance and handling are second only to BMW, and not by much.
- Sport suspension errs on the side of comfort if you ask me.
This is my second new car, and my first Infinit. I should mention that I come from a Nissan family--we've owned a Maxima, a Sentra, a Pathfinder, and now I own a G35 (my own contribution to the family purchasing habit).
I picked up a 2006 "Base" RWD sedan for just about $30,000 with sport suspension, and the luxury package.
Before this, I owned a VW Jetta GLX with a VR6 that I'd done some work on (Bilstein Sport shocks, Neuspeed sway bar and P-chip, springs, 17" rims, etc) to make it a more performance-oriented car.
I'd more-or-less accomplished that goal, but I gave up a little too much in terms of ride quality and everyday usability with that car. So when it was time to upgrade, I decided to pick a slightly different path.
I knew I wanted the sedan and not the coupe, even though I absolutely love the way the coupe looks. But I wanted a practical car that could seat 5 in reasonable comfort. The sedan has exactly the same engine, with the cam slightly retarded for a slightly lower HP rating, but it's almost impossible to tell after driving them back to back.
First up: performance. This car is a BEAST. I immediately fell in love with the growly engine note, and the way it blasts off from a stoplight. It's a big car, so it won't be setting any records in 0-60, but it's under 7 seconds.
It sticks decently well thanks to the 18-inch rims and wide rubber, but I'm a little let down by the "sport" suspension I'd paid extra for. The body rolls a good bit (although considerably less than in the stock suspended model), but it's still very predictable in turns. And the beautiful RWD will let you kick the rear out a bit before the stability control kicks in. Joy!
Next: Appearance. It's gorgeous. The trim and interior are cleaned up; the leather and aluminum trim is subtle but classy, and the amber instrumentation is very attractive while remaining logical and easy to use. My only complaint is that the hands-free Bluetooth microphone is not particularly sensitive, and the gain isn't adjustable. I wind up yelling while driving, or else switching to my BT headset instead.
Externally, the car looks great, too. The 18" rims give it a slightly more aggressive look, and I'm a huge fan of the "catamaran" style front fender / HID headlamps. They look great and work great, too.
But just so you know: those 18" tires are EXPENSIVE. Not two months after I bought the car, I got a nail in a tire. It was a chore finding a place that was willing to patch the tire (even though the patch has held up for 5000 miles so far); most tire shops want to sell you a tire that they'd have to special order, anyway. Sorry, $280 for a single tire is a bit much still...ah, well, you get what you pay for, and in this case that's ride quality, low noise, and a high level of performance to boot. Can't argue with that.
The best way to describe this car is what it is: a 350Z chassis and engine wrapped in a superlative sedan body. How could they go wrong?...read morehide

- Comfortable and looks great.
- OMG that gas mileage I don't pass 300 miles on a tank.
I love my car, but the gas mileage is horrible. Also, you could easily be driving 100 MPH and not even notice. Be careful speeders. =)
