A Teen's Perspective

Jul 10, 2007 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Appearance, handling, luxury
Cons: Maintenance
The Bottom Line: Don't get for new drivers, may cause numerous problems that hit the wallet hard. Otherwise, experienced drivers should have a blast!

Well, I got to drive a G35 to and from school and other miscellaneous places throughout my junior year of high school. As great as it looks and performs, it's basically an upstage version of the 350Z. I'm currently 17 years old and even I say that ... read more

Mar 12, 2007 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Performance, luxury, style with some power.. GREAT MIXTURE
Cons: Not enough power to stand out
The Bottom Line: If comfort and performance is your thing then you have to test drive the G35 Coupe.

The 2005 Infiniti G35 Coupe is a great improvement for its previous model. A superior combination of performance and luxury with a touch of beauty makes the G35 one of the best in its class. When compare to the 2005 Mustang GT the G35 proved that power ... read more

Pure Driving Excitement!!!

Feb 27, 2007 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Acceleration, ride, handling, styling and reliability
Cons: Somewhat utilitarian interior (although still very nice)
The Bottom Line: If you buy this car, you will not be disapointed.

I should start by mentioning that I am a very picky driver and an even pickier car shopper. My wife, on the other hand, falls in love with almost every car she test drives. Last year, during our hunt for a new car for her, we test drove and ... read more

9 Months of 2005 G35

Nov 14, 2005 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Handling, nice interior, styling
Cons: Horrible, horrible MPG
The Bottom Line: If this car had 50% better gas mileage, it would be perfect.

I purchased the G35 AWD Sedan after my previous car of 12 years ('93 Altima) died. Since I assumed I would have the G35 for the next 12 years, I loaded it with every option (premium, chrome wheels, NAV, etc) except satellite radio. I have had the car ... read more

Sep 29, 2005 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Mucho HP, Style, Price!
Cons: Fuel Economy, Too easy to get a ticket!
The Bottom Line: Great car for the money when compared to the competition. Most HP and less headache when it comes to repairs.

I upgraded from a 1999 G20T to a 2005 G35 equipped with sport package and all I can say is that I make execuses to go drive the car. Compared with my old Infiniti G20 the G35 has so much horsepower that I know I'm gonna get a speeding ticket soon. But ... read more

Our Accord went into the shop just to get a little touch up on the paint on the bumper so the dealer let us borrow a car for the day. It just happened to be an Infiniti G35. So my review won't be soooo in depth on every button and long term experiences ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent acceleration, Refined styling, Definite Value
Cons: Storage Space, Ride Harshness
The Bottom Line: This is a car that makes you eager to drive, happy to look at, and a joy to own.

After a few years of serious gazing and ogling of the G35 COUPE, I finally decided to test drive one. It was perhaps the most satisfying car experience I have ever had. I can't say that this is a car for everyone, but sometimes you just know when a ... read more

The Improved 2005 Infiniti G35 Still Has Room for Improvement

by
Apr 5, 2005 - Updated May 13, 2013 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent power, handling, braking, looks, price, features, seats, safety
Cons: Fuel economy, speakers (standard or Bose), non-folding seats, slow MP3 navigation
The Bottom Line: The improved G35 is better than the last year model and I highly recommend it. Just make sure you are OK with less than good fuel economy and check...

I am currently driving a 2005 Infiniti G35 that I got from the Infiniti dealership I go to for service while my 2004 Infiniti G35 Sedan is there awaiting repairs. On one hand, I am happy to see the improvement ... read more

I Bought a 2005 G35 Coupe. Would Somebody Please Wipe the Smile off my Face?

by
Apr 4, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Lovely looks, tight handling, amazing brakes, powerful engine, silky smooth transmission.
Cons: The upgraded Bose stereo just doesn't quite cut the mustard.
The Bottom Line: If you are looking for a luxury sports car, want to save ten grand over a Porsche Boxster and enjoy posing a little, BUY THIS CAR.

Last Thursday I picked up my brand spanking new 2005 Infiniti G35 Coupe and I haven't stopped smiling since. I was in the market for a sporty but comfortable car. I have always liked the look of the Nissan Z350, however the ride on that car is reputed to ... read more

Infiniti G35 Coupe - AT, NAV, PREM, SPORT Packages Reviewed

by
Mar 28, 2005 - Updated Mar 31, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent GT car offering great value for the money.
Cons: Cumbersome sometimes with poor fuel economy. Fit and finish not up to Lexus standards.
The Bottom Line: Some of the “cheapness” of the car does bother me at times, I have taken to judging the car from an overall perspective.

G35 Coupe The Infiniti G35 Coupe was first launched as a 2003 model towards the latter part of 2002. Based on the same chassis as the G35 sedan and Nissan 350Z, this vehicle was intended to be a more upscale version of the 350Z with appeal to ... read more

My Second G is even better than my first

by
Feb 10, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Great engine, beautiful sound, and a good value
Cons: Terrible tires, NAVI needs voice activation and touch screen.
The Bottom Line: Give this car a drive, Infiniti is putting out a wonderful product that blows BMW and Acura away.

Two months ago I traded my 2003 G35 for a 2005 G35X. I had several reasons for getting rid of the first car (which I loved if you read my review) I was never a big fan of the interior quality, more importantly I had several very close calls in snowy ... read more

2005 G35 with RWD beats the Acura TL and Caddy CTS

by
Feb 7, 2005 - Updated Feb 8, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Great styling (unique vs. Acura), Power/handling, Comfort/luxurious appointments, Price tag (vs. BMW, Mercedes).
Cons: Gas mileage, Insurance costs (way higher than Cadillac, higher than Acura), small trunk passthrough.
The Bottom Line: Great car for those looking for exceptional luxury and performance at a very reasonable price.

After a pretty intensive research comparison and test drives of all three cars, just bought the Infiniti G35 Sedan (without the AWD) instead of the Acura TL or the Cadillac CTS. We couldn't be happier! Here's how the three cars stack up in what we were ... read more

G35X: The German slayer from Japan, perfected.

by
Feb 2, 2005 - Updated Feb 17, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: The symphonic engine growl at 4000+rpm, neck-snapping acceleration, great suspension, perfect all-wheel-drive, intelligent key.
Cons: Navigation system needs improvement (Honda's puts it to shame), lack of interior storage space, MPG.
The Bottom Line: Though Infiniti is often overlooked when shopping in the near-luxury or luxury class, the G35X is an as-good or better vehicle than any of its competitors on the market today.

After a few minutes behind the wheel of the 2005 G35X, you can tell that the Infiniti engineers logged plenty of hours at the helm of the German benchmarks in this class. You can also tell that they learned fast. If you're in the market for an ... read more

Pros: Great handling vehicle; fun to drive; looks rich and classy.
Cons: Quality of paint leaves something to be desired.
Bought my 2005 G35 coupe new 9-05. First long trip (500 miles)generated multiple paint chips, which continue to be a constant problem--and I don't follow closely behind trucks. I also have water spots on the vehicle. I'm very careful about drying the ... read more

Pros: Acceleration, fuel economy (highway cruising), Bose sound system, Navigation System, interior quality
Cons: extremely poor quality brakes, ridiculous maintenance costs
I have leased a G35X for about 24 months and it has cost me an average of $100/month for maintenance. Complete front brake job (rotors and pads) at 48000 km. Rear brakes due to be replaced very soon as well. Rotors are not covered by warranty. ... read more

Pros: acceleration. Excellent service at Glendale Infiniti. Averages 23 mpg. Great HVAC. Heated seats. Good stereo
Cons: Controls on steering wheel not lighted. Tire pressure light doesn't work correctly.
I've had my G35 for almost 2 yrs. now and love it. I have the nav. system that has been a Godsend for a newby in L.A. I've been all over SoCal without having to pull over and check my map. It's quick to match the high speed of freeway driving and stops ... read more

Pros: Power, Bose system, styling, intelligent key system, brakes, handling, value for the level of luxury.
Cons: Mileage, limited trunk space and interior storage.
I compared the Acura TL and Maxima but they fell short of the G35. I was concerned about roominess, being 6'5", but it met my needs very well and the memory seat resolves the issue of my wife's shorter frame causing readjustments. The AWD climbs my steep ... read more

Pros: The sound coming from the exhaust is the best roar of power.
Cons: I can't stand the seat belt pre-tensers.
I became tired of the convertable BMW and started looking around dealers for fast, fun and full of luxary. To top it off the warranty and service every buy should receive. The stock 298 horsepower, 3.5 liter rear wheel drive, six speed with forged 19" ... read more
