"My 2005 G35 now has 111000 miles on it and, other than regular maintenance, changing belts, brakes, and oil changes, I have had nothing go wrong.
__The interior is comfortable (leather is well padded) and there is plenty of headroom for a tall guy like me.
__The seats are fully adjustable.
__The sound system (standard) is awesome,even without the Bose upgrade.
__Plenty of trunk space if you're traveling.
__Plenty of get up and go! This car will fly!
__No mechanical issues.
__The loud engine and exhaust adds to the interior noise level.
__The radio and air-conditioning buttons are illogically laid out and easy to confuse with each other.
__The brakes tend to wear out quickly (every 2 years)
I highly recommend this car."
Pros: "Handling, looks, exhaust note, great engine"
Cons: "not the greatest interior for a luxury brand"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I've owned this car for 4 years. I change the oil every 5k miles and I use full synthetic oil.
Yes, the back seat is uncomfortable for someone over 5'8" and the ride is not soft, but it's designed to ride like a sports car.
- The steering is accurate. You can feel every different road surface, which goes to show just how precise the steering feel is.
- The suspension is sport tuned (it's fantastic!) and it handles and corners amazingly.
- The 3.5 V6 engine is strong, fast with plenty of torque and the exhaust note sounds amazing.
- The car is absolutely gorgeous. It's simple, with clean lines and aggressive look. This body style is almost 9 years old"
"I waited 10 months to see the first 350Z's to show up in NC back in 2003 and was not impressed. But I opened up a magazine and saw the G35 Coupe MT6. After buying it, there has never been another car that has grabbed my attention (and other peoples). I've now owned my G35 for 5 years and every time I walk towards the car it brings a smile to my face. I have thought about new cars but I am just too afraid after a few months it would just be another car. Just passing 68/K miles, no problems and my only maintenance has been oil changes and tires. Everything else is original and working just fine. Gas mileage back and forth to work is 23/24mpg and highway keeping it 70-75mph will get me 27/28mpg which I find extraordinary. Having the MT6/Performance Package has cost me in 'tires' but with the flawless performance, incredible feel, great looks...I think I'll keep it for another 5 years."
"After a year of shopping around and test driving Infiniti, Lexus, Acura, Mercedes and BMW, I finally broke down and bought a new car. After seeing and driving most of what's out there right now, the decision was easy to buy a new 2008 G35 Journey. I've since found this to be the best car I've ever owned. It's a near perfect combination of grace and power wrapped in a luxury package. You have no doubt about the car's ability to perform when you hit the gas, and the upgraded Bose stereo system rivals most home systems. Pound for pound and dollar for dollar, this is the best "near-luxury" car you can buy. My two critical observations are that 1) the interior is snug, but still comfortable and 2) the car's gas mileage is worse than posted, but that may be because I just can't help but be heavy on the gas. This car just wants to fly...
The bottom line is...don't hesitate, test drive one and buy it. You won't regret it."
"I have owned this car for over 4 years, and believe it is one of the best values available, considering styling/performance. The competition costs much more to match this vehicle. If you enjoy driving, and want a fun car with excellent performance, you cannot beat this car for the money."
