Pros

quality, reliability, lots of bells and whisltes, good in the snow

Cons

Gas mileage could be better, not sporty at all, sluggish transmission

Great All Around, But Lacking In The Sport Side — Overall a nice car. Good build and strong engine. Very reliable as well. From a performance aspect, not sporty. Granted it is an AWD model and good inthe snow, it isn't very sporty. Step on the gas and there is a lag. Transmission feels sloppy and jerky at times. Plain styling. Corners ok, but could be better. If looking for a great overall car, this is a winner. If you want something sporty, look elsewhere.

Pros

Great combination of performance and luxury, turns its share of heads fairly often, think a lot of people don't know about this car

Cons

Wish Vehicle Dynamic Control wasn't so intrusive, Infiniti could've made it more similar to the Z's (350Z just has traction control that still lets you break the tail loose), brakes are way too weak for this much power

65

Can't Beat The Performance/luxury Combination It Offers — Only car that can match/beat this car in its class is the M3 (Rear-drive, ~300hp, 6spd manual, w/ a decent backseat and trunk), and you'd have to buy an M3 a couple years older to get a similar purchase price. Handles quite well w/ the Sport Pkg, great exhaust note (not too intrusive at lower revs, nice sound at full throttle). Extremely fun daily-driver that you can have a blast with on the weekends too

Pros

Fun, fast and fantastic...  

Cons

Nothing...  maybe inferior gas mileage around town, but not a deterrent at all!

Love It And Highly Recommend It...! — Rapid acceleration, sticky handling, interior quality is excellent. This is just an all-around FUN car to drive, with beautiful styling, plus 26+ mpg on the hwy, 19-20 around town. Still, the sound the engine makes when running through the gears never fails to send shivers up my spine...!

Goes Through Tires To Quick — Has excellent power and dandling. Good on winding road. Brakes will stop you on a dime. Just looks great and reuns realyy fast. Only probem area is tires don't last every long. Low profile tires that are great traction but rough ride on bummpy road.

2005 Infiniti G35 — I've had my G35 for 6 years and absolutely love it. I run hard on brakes and tires, but I knew that going in. I like this car so much, I purchase two. Gas economy is just ok, but not a big deal if you don't have car payments. Overall a great car.

Sexy And Fast — I love the shape of the car. The Ivory Pearl looks really nice under the sun. The ride is a bit hard. Little road noise inside. Maintenance costs are reasonable. Fast car. Braking is great. Never felt unsafe driving it. Love driving this car

Fast Car — What I like about the G35 that it's a nice sport feature car but also have some of the aspects of a luxury car. If you have a need for speed or just want to coast, it does it all. The only down fall if you have kids like myself. It's really not a family car unless it's just you and your significant other.

Pros

Sporty and stylish. If tuned correctly it runs great. With straight pipe exhaust the sound is aggressive on start up, idle, and while switching through gears. Lavish 20" staggered chrome rims. Along with Summer performance tires. After market cold air intake. Great handling. Overall a nice Luxury Sports coupe.

Cons

After a certain mileage things start to wear out as usual with any car. The problem is it being a Infiniti the repair is costly. Window motors died out at around 80,000 miles. Brake rotors worn down. Gas mileage is not that good considering the gas prices and the premium gas option that is recommended. Intake sits low in the engine bay so the possibility of sucking up water if too high due to the fact that the car sits lower than most vehicles can be a serious problem. Navigation system gets stuck on the way up when you try to open it.

Great If You Can Afford It. — I loved the look at first glance with the G35. Very well kept outside as well as the inside. Heated seats and power sunroof were things that caught my eye. After the exhaust work the car sounded more aggressive which lead to an overall great look from other drivers. Acceleration along with handling were sure pluses with this car. The downside is that it being a Luxury sports car. So along the lines of Mercedes and BMWs they are not the easiest on the pockets when it comes down to maintaining them. I wouldn't recommend this as a first time buyers first car. You can get a lot out of the car itself but after a while it just seems like things stop working. Its not old so the reliability of the parts aren't really there. But if kept up well and monitored more than usual to keep in good condition it is an overall great car experience.

Pros

Awesome power and handling! Very comfortable and ergonomic cockpit. I loved that car!

Cons

Just one little nitpicky thing: when I had the car, I used it for commuting to work in the DC area, 25 miles each way. The stop and go traffic seemed to wear out the brakes pretty quickly compared to other vehicles I owned.

Great Little Car! — My vehicle was a 2005, and I liked the interior better than the ones that came out later. Although the newer ones had some nice looking features, the cockpit seemed to wrap around me too much and box me in, creating a cramped feeling, especially in the winter when wearing coats, etc. I mainly bought this car as a commuting car, but opted for the 4 doors and back seat for occasional use. The car suited me fine for this purpose, but if you have a family, and especially infant seats, don't buy this as your family's primary mode of transportation.
