M 35x ... I have been looking for a reliable car and have come across the Infinity M 35x.
I started my search by looking for AWD and came across the Infinity M35. I have driven a 2007 with 175.000 mi, a 2008 with 112.000 and a 2009 with 130.000. The 2007 and the 2008 were both nicer and smoother. IS 175,000 a ;pt for an 07? The price is Good as well as the price for the o8. I am looking for a reliable car and getting my credit back on track, after driving these cars it is hard to consider anything else. I would appreciate input from some people that really know the Infinity. Thank YOU!
Infiniti is a very good brand with the engine being the one of the best you can get.
Correll, Thank you for so much for a quick response. Do you know anything about the electronics and how well they hold up?
I had a new stereo and sat radio installed which necessitated a new console so I can't answer that.
Those are all high mile cars so be careful and don't pay too much as you could be in for major repairs in the next 50k miles or less.
Thank you for responding, have you had issues with an Infinity?
Choosing an Infiniti (or any upmarket / luxury brand) is going to push you into a higher mileage, older, or more expensive purchase than if you go with a mainstream brand. There is nothing wrong with the M35, per se. But buying one with well over 100k miles is going to require more maintenance than a newer car (and the same repair work / parts will cost than on a Nissan, or other 'entry level' sedan). If you just want to establish your credit, I'd go with something else -- you could be putting a lot on your card if you face an unexpected trip to the mechanic!
All those complicated electronic accessories and climate control systems start going south which costs a ton of money to diagnose and fix.
It seems that Infinities run forever, has anyone here owned or currently own one? I really appreciate all of the comments.
I have the 2008 M35s sport with 104k. The ONLY thing that has gone bad is the controller to turn the lights with the steering. Don't need it, didn't have it fixed. I have put 1 new battery, 1 set of tires (still have about 15000 miles left on them) and that is all. I was going to trade it for a new one but decided to keep it for another year since "Q" is a new series. I would highly recommend it or the Lexus "G" series in the same price range.
oldtimer37, Your response fits with the research that I have done. I haven't come across anything that says I would be apt to have issues with this car. Leaning toward the o8 as of now. All comments are helpful and would especially like to hear more from Infinity owners. I only like the m35x and all wheel drive is a must. It would be ideal if I could get an m35x now and in a few years trade it in for a newer model. So far, I have my eye on the 2016 Infinity Q70 for the future.
Q70 looks good but I am going to give it a year. I prefer the performance of the "S" over the "X". I have had both.
Thanks for the best answer mark.
You're welcome. Thank you for sharing!
