2007 Infiniti G Review

By

The 2007 G35 Coupe carries on without the styling upgrades made to its stablemate, the G35 Sedan. Far from dated, the Coupe's sleek styling, intelligently appointed interior and sizzling performance attributes seem at odds with its ridiculously low sticker price, which makes it a thorn in the side of long-time rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Powered by a rev-happy V6 engine and driven by its rear wheels, the G35 Coupe is endowed with the performance attributes so important to enthusiast drivers, yet also has the styling and sophistication to impress those who appreciate the finer things in life. Simply put, the G35 Coupe represents a masterful blend of beauty and brawn, with a hefty dose of reliability and strong resale value tossed in for good measure.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you like traditional rear-wheel-drive performance coupes with all the luxury trappings of a premium sedan, you'll love the G35. Its long hood, short deck and low-to-the-ground stance are ideal for enthusiastic driving.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you're a tall driver, you'll find the G35 Coupe to be a tight fit, even with the driver's seat at its lowest position. Some will lament the lack of a V8 option, but only those who have not experienced the G35's V6.

What's New for 2007

A push-button starter is made standard (not available on models with the manual transmission), as are automatic on/off headlamps.

Driving the G
Driving Impressions

Thanks to the G35's standard traction control and excellent brakes, the rear-wheel-drive coupe provides outstanding stability in all driving conditions. The steering may feel a little heavy, but its responsiveness...

... to the driver's commands is never in question. The ride is firm and direct, but only when the G35 is equipped with the optional 19-inch wheels and upgraded Sport-Tuned suspension might some people consider it to be on the rougher side.

The G35 can accelerate with such fury it might seem there should almost be a warning label draped across the dash. You'll discover the five-speed automatic does an excellent job of holding its upshifts until every last ounce of torque is milked from the current gear. Of course, true enthusiasts will want to opt for the six-speed manual transmission.

Pop-Up LCD Navigation
The clever pop-up LCD navigation screen keeps the navigation controls separate from the audio controls.

High Center Console
The high center console allows you to rest your arm perfectly in line with the six-speed manual.

2007 Infiniti G Details
2007 Infiniti G photo Interior

Although it lacks the more modern interior of the new G35 Sedan, the execution of the G35 Coupe's interior is still rated as excellent. It is true that some materials have a less-than-luxurious feel, and the power seat controls remain inconveniently placed atop the lower seat cushion. As we mentioned, headroom is a challenge because of the tapered roofline, but the seating is still first-rate. Another nice interior touch is the adjustable pod that houses the instrument gauges - it moves up and down with the tilt wheel.

Exterior

The G35's raked rear end may mean minimal headroom for rear passengers, but it is a positive in the looks and aerodynamics departments. Cargo space is on the small side, but the wide trunk opening, coupled with a deck lid that can open at a 90-degree angle, makes it easy to load large or bulky objects. The big 18-inch alloy wheels look just right on this car, and they actually deliver a fairly comfortable ride.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The G35 Coupe comes with a 275-horsepower V6 (293 horsepower with the six-speed manual), five-speed automatic with manual mode, automatic air conditioning, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), illuminated entry with remote, bi-xenon headlamps, dual heated power mirrors, AM/FM stereo with MP3-compatible six-disc CD changer, side-curtain airbags, front side-impact airbags, leather trimmed eight-way driver and four-way passenger power and heated seats, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel with touch controls, tire pressure monitor, 17-inch alloy wheels and power windows.

Optional Equipment

Options include a six-speed manual transmission, Bose audio, power glass moonroof, onboard navigation, 18- and 19-inch wheels, sport suspension, power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, limited-slip rear axle, Rear Active Steer Package and SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

Under the Hood

The G35 offers only one engine choice, but it's one beautiful piece of machinery and without question is one of the best V6 engines on the planet. You'll marvel at the amazing power, and perhaps even more so at the impressive fuel economy.

3.5-liter V6
275 horsepower @ 6200 rpm (automatic), 293 horsepower @ 6400 rpm (manual)
268 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4800 rpm (automatic), 258 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4800 rpm (manual)

G35 next to a GTR!

"I bought my used 2005 G35 coupe 6-spd in 2014 with all the options including Navigation. This is an excellent luxury sports car for the money. Fits 4 adults comfortably. It drives very smooth with plenty of power and torque. With the 6speed manual you can get between 20-23mpg in the city if you drive it easy like I do, and 25-30mpg in the highway. Pretty good mpg for V6 sports car. I love driving this car, and its the closest vehicle to a Skyline GTR but without the hefty pricetag. Maintenance is expensive though, but it is a luxury car so it is expected. I do all the routine maintenance at the dealership and you are treated very well there. Some wear items to watch out for are suspension parts, driver leather seat tears at the corner, and the door stop on the coupes tend to wear out. Other owners have reported oil consumption issues, but if you keep up with routine maintenance/oil change, you'll be fine."

sideview is stylish, I like it

"Purchased it 2013, G35 2006 6 speed man. tranny. The mileage was 95500. The car engine used oil already. It means oil has not been changed according to intervall or it has been used low grade oil longer period. I have found out now that that piston rings are wear out. Ok. In the beginning car drove fine, the clutch however has been designed poorly. Uncomfortable for such class car. Even OEM clutch and flywheel that was repl at nissan dealer did gave smell for some time. That is fault of factory design.Ok next was drive shaft that was wear out- 480USD. good price. then i noticed car was picky in fuel grade. I used fuel additives and here my nightmares started. It started to give such a terrible smell for 2 years now that it is arwful. additives destroyed my car spark plugs, 02 sensors 4 and cat converters and I think now even fuel pump and from somewhere still comes fuel smell inside cabin. And also some vibration from engine when it is cold at idle.The car is fast 0-60=5.4s. 1/4 mile 13.6. Some issues with front axle parts also, but it is normal wear, the car has no rust at all.The front part of car could be more solid.In proper condition it is good to drive. Passing in highway is just dream. 6 speed tranny is also good. Fuel consumption in city is 20mpg and highway 30mpg. Pretty good. During nearly 30000 miles I have repaired brakes only once.Not bad.The fuel system issue now is just complete nightmare that is unaxeptable."

Pros: "Will do great on track and pleasant to travel."

Cons: "Poor mileage, weird seat controls."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Seats are great for holding and comfortable as well. Seat controls are on the right hand seat leadge, left hand for passenger. Nice after you get used to them. Odometer has 3 functions, A for first mileage, B for secondary mileage, and third function for setting a rpm warning, a red flashing light on dash. Very hard to get out of and completely useless. Larger rear wheels/tires are expensive and can't be rotated so you better buy best you can afford with top warranty. Best looking Infinity ever made, and get offers to buy from young hot shoes."

"Ive had my 2004 Infiniti for 3 years now and havent had one major issue since. With 135k on it, she drives beautifully and cant think of any complaints..... Except.. How often I need to change my brake pads and that the MPG sucks if you dont have a budget to fit this type of car. Besides those minor defects, I love my G35x and cant wait to upgrade to a new model!!"

Typical condition of the whole vehical.

"In addition to previous options, includes car lifetime satellite radio, and 3M film body protection. This car has been driven less than 2,000 miles per year, never in snow and only three times in the rain, always garaged. One owner."
