"I own the 2003 G35 sedan. I wanted a four door car without sacrificing any of the fun of a coupe. The acceleration is incredible, and the handling is equally impressive. The back seat has tons of legroom. The brakes are a bit touchy, but with the quickness of the car, I appreciate that it will stop on a dime. My only complaint is that the interior door panel covers are peeling away from the door and I have to keep pressing them back on. I just need to glue it, so that's not a big deal. Overall, it's a ten. My prior car was a 2003 BMW 325i convertible, and driving my Infiniti is even more fun, which I didn't think was possible!"

Pros: "comfortable daily driver, good reliablity, fun"

Cons: "quirky habits, no aux, not much else"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"purchased this car to replace a Honda S2000. The Honda was a ton of fun but very unpractical when traveling. This car is not a "sports" car but its still a great handling car with an excellent v6 motor. This car makes a great long distance traveler. the ride is smooth and the interior comfortable and roomy. Gas mileage will depend on how you drive but it was still pretty good returning 300 miles per tank when I traveled. If you want to make it sportier, defiantly get the manual. I got the auto, and though it still handles and drives great, a stick only makes it better. My only problem was some quirky habits with the keyless fob and the location of the seat adjusters. very livable but annoying when they pop up. Also, no aux for phone to listen to your music. Even cheaper cars had that feature "standard". if you enjoy rear wheel GT coupes, this one is one of the best. great motor, with a great handling chassis plus looks that still gets complemented on."

Extremely fun car to drive.

"Extremely fun to drive is the bottom line. Breaks wear down quickly. Great in the snow. Very good acceleration with 267 hp. Lots of nice amenities. Very good car, overall for the money. Great value."

"2007 Infiniti G35 coupe 6MT (6 speed manual transmition). I love this car. This version has the sport tuned suspention and 19" aloy wheels. It also has a more sporty front end and side panels. This car handles great, takes corners like it's on rails, and throttle response is pretty amazing. It also looks super sexy. There is a back seat but its not ideal for adults, most grown folks' head's touch the rear window. this car is great as a second car for our family (I am pretty much the only one who uses it) but I wouldn't recomend it as your primary family car, especialy if you like to travel, there's just not much room for people and lugage. the G Coupe performs great, I purchased it in Oregon, drove it to Southern California, shipped it to Germany (used it there for 3 years), then shipped it to Georgia where I live now. I had no mechanical or performance issues at any location. As I was, this car is not designed for winter climates. It works great in the rain with good all season tires but it will not hold the ground in even the lightest of snow regardless of witer tires. I had a blast in Germany with this thing. They are pretty rare in central Europe so it turned heads every where I drove it. Plus it's built to compete with BMW and Audi and I can say from experience that it will hold it's own against the European performance cars in it's class. There is nothing like shooting down the autobahn at 130mph with a family of four. Even at those speeds the car handled great, no wobbling or drifting around, it stayed true and responded to lane changes and evasive manuvers as if it were only going 55mph. Even at 130mph the engine never showed signs of giving up. I don't know at what speed the governer kicks in (if it has one) but the only reason I didn't try to find out is because other cars on the road always seemed to get in the way. Oh, and the G Coups sound great right off the lot, no "tuning" or modifications needed, it already has an agressive sound (but not obnoxious)with the factory equipment. Over all, great ride, I highly recomend it to people without older kids or who can afford a some what impractical second car."

I'm owned my G35 for 8 years and still love it!

"I have 272k miles and counting on my 2003 G35 and still love to drive it like it's brand new. It has provided the best of both worlds as an every day commuter vehicle. Comfront, style and sports car driving all rolled into one. Trust me, anyone that knows me personally can tell you that I like cars that are well balanced (fast, handleling and comfort all rolled into one). I also autocrossed the car for 3 years when I first bought it. The 2003 6MT has no speed or rev limiter and will do the entire 160 on the dash. I recently completed a trip to OH and got 26 MPG on the highway. For the cost versers value; you can't go wrong. I love my G! It's the blue car in the middle. If you see the photo than you'll notice my weekend vehicle uniquely qualifies me to say these things."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Surprisingly strong, very responsive engine. Quick to answer when the throttle is pushed. Nice, throaty tone to exhaust. Handles fairly well. Road noise almost objectionable, but overlooked because of the other positive features. Comfortable, quality interior. Very reliable, but very expensive if parts are needed."
