Fun car even in stock form

Cons

not a powerful car.

Great Daily Driver — Not a fast car one bit, used to call it a momentum car. It handled really good, after i put the coilovers on it and the bigger wheels with Z rated rubber. Miss this car as it had a sad demise to it, T-bones on the passenger side all my fault.

Pros

Luxury Race Car. Special Edition

Cons

Transmisson

Nice But Nice Car — This car is pretty nice. I would trade it because it is too old. The transmission sucks but I still like it. It is a nice car to own. If you like a luxurios and a racing car this is a car for you.

Good Car. — It's a simple sedan that gets me from point A to point B. Not bad on gas milage. Handles well, and grip the road on corners very well. Cheap and fun to drive. Primarily used for work where I have to drive a lot. I drive agresivly and mercesly, and the G20 takes it very well with no problems.

Pros

Absolutely everthing

Cons

It was the base model and didn't have leather

25

My Infiniti G20 — This was truly a beautiful car. It was top notch quality with the most gorgeous pearl white paint you'd ever see. It was fun to drive and I never once had a problem with it. I made the mistake of trading it in for something I liked a lot less.

Pros

comfy, decent on gas so far (25-26mpg avg), reliable engine

Cons

older so suspension parts will start to need replacement, crappy stereo

35

Not Bad — from what i've read the sr20de 2.0 motors in these cars are very reliable, so that's a definite plus. the interior is comfortable and i like the dash layout. sunroof is plenty big. the autotragic transmission is slower than a manual, but it comes with a switch to change the gearing to 3 settings: performance, normal, and comfort. there is a huge difference in the cars performance between the 3, so that's a cool feature. so far i like it but i haven't dumped any money into it either. the first few repairs may affect my decision.

Pros

Far more personality than a bland Lexus, sharp handling, "right" size.

Cons

Secondary mechanicals could be more solid.  Stick would have been preferable to my auto.

35

Fun, Fairly Cheap And Comfortable. — I found this car equal to or better many new cars despite its old age. Agile handling, mostly solid fit and finish...an all around good compaion. It was a rather un-American car and I respected it for that. Its only real problem was costly and premature failure of secondary parts (alternator, water pump, cd player, etc.). I still miss it.

The Best Car For Under $8000 By David

Surprisingly Great Car! By landmanhall

The previous owner put aftermarket sport springs on this car and it rides kind of rough but handles better than any other car I have driven. On/off ramps at 70mph are no problem. I have gotten as much... Read More
