First nice car, WAY worth the money

I had eyed the 540i for years (high power, low profile.) Finally saved enough to pay cash, test drove an older E-39 and wasn't blown away. Then I found an '07 G35S on the lot last April, so began researching reliability versus newer cars in the same league. Multiple reviews and repairmen advised in favor of Japanese and against German, so it came down to the G35S and IS350. In the end, the G's 4 more inches of total legroom (learned from this website) helped me decide in favor of the Infiniti for a family ride I can enjoy by myself. This car is unbelievable in power, handling and amenities. The previous owner packed it with everything so I feel spoiled. I also like the bladed grille and wide, curved, low-slung nose of the 2007 model (more appealing, in my opinion, than any G before or since) though I think the tail end (a bit of a fat hump) is less inspiring. Our only complaint is that the clutch is a bit grabby (have read reviews suggesting the issue is specific to the 07 model.) And, yes, there's the acceleration "swell" effect. Nevermind that, though, this car will seriously throw you back into your seat quick enough. As for mileage, it's a compromise. If I want a fast ride, of course I'm gonna burn gas. If I want to save gas, I switch on the intelligent cruise and get 30 mpg, no kidding. This is our weekend car and we have loved it (okay, I have loved it) since that first amazing day I drove it off the lot like a spoiled kid. The dealership has been excellent and I would definitely consider Infiniti again for our next car (even though the blue and white propeller still beckons.)

I just recently purchased a 07 G35x and it's the most amazing car on the road. It's simply invigorating driving this car. It's so fast and so smooth and it's a ride you will purely LOVE everytime you have to drive somewhere. There is so much to love about this car. Some of the highlights though are the powerful 3.5 engine, extremely responsive and powerful acceleration, incredible handling, front LDC monitor, power everything, exquisite styling interior and out, comfort, and an amazing Bose surround system. This car should be priced 10 or 20 grand more for what you get and for the performance and style. But at this price, it's absolutely unbeatable based on what you get. I've been a huge car enthusiast my whole life and have driven some really nice cars, but this on is beyond anything in it's class. You won't find cars for 80grand that perform like this. This is by far one of, if not THE best car out there.

I just love this car. I just bought it slightly used (20,000 miles) and love the interior quality, the look, and the power of the engine. On my first day out, a Porsche 911 wanted to race me, which for me was quite a change from my Honda. The styling is similar to the new G37, and am so glad that I chose this one over some German rivals such as Audi and BMW who are known to have reliability issues.

I worked for a major car rental company and fell in love with this car the first time I drove one. The power is there if you need it. Also, the amenities are terrific. My one complaint is that the seats are a little narrow. I'm not a huge guy (about 225 lbs) and I could use a little more room around the hips. If you're looking for a car that has the touch of luxury with a sports car mentality, this is the car for you. I absolutely love it!

I was initially looking for is250, but i saw this car at the dealership, and love it. For the same year (2007), this car is 2-3K less than is250, while options are similar. But definitely this car has better performance than the is250. The is250 is more comfy. One complain: the music box (9.5GB) is useless. You can only record it if it's music cd (not mp3) from the in-dash cd player. The compact flash can't be recorded to the music box.

Comfort: 5/5 This car has a ton of available options, my car has them all except the sport package, which in my opinion adds uncomfortable seats and a rough ride. my car has navigation, Sat radio, built in HD for storing music, adaptive radar guided cruise control, adaptive headlights, sunroof, leather, back up camera, heated seats... about any option you could ask for in a car. The ride is taught, but not harsh, and very quiet on the highway. Easily the most comfortable, and well equipped vehicle I have owned. Performance: 4/5 For 95% of people out there, this is a fast car, a very fast car actually. It's able to out accelerate nearly every other vehicle on the road, considering most people don't drive very fast car. However, coming from my old CTS-V to the G35x, there was a noticeable decrease in performance. The trade off is a better ride, more features, and reliability... but the CTS-V was a better performance car. That said, the G35x handles well, with little body roll, and transmits pretty goof feedback from the road. One of the biggest downsides is when getting AWD, you can only have an automatic transmission. A fault I somewhat remedied by installed Infiniti OEM shift paddles, which come with the sport package, but are very easily added by yoursefl for about $100. The car is already wired and everything, you just need the parks and a screwdriver. Overall the car is a true sports sedan, but don't expect it to be a track day car. Exterior Styling: 3/5 Probably the worst part about the car. Nothing wrong with it, but it has a very sedate appearance. There are aggressive headlights, nice LED tail lights, and sculpted hood.... but not much else. The stock wheels are dull, and the car in profile is very bland. Styling is obviously subjective, but it's not nearly as eye catching as some other cars on the road. Even compared to a new, high trim level Camry, the G35x is outshined. Interior Design: 4/5 Not perfect, but generally a solid cabin. The materials are soft touch, and real aluminum (with a cool texture inspired by Japanese rice paper) The interior holds up well, with only a few wear marks appearing on the steering wheel, which I've seen on all G35's. The gauges are attractive, and easy to read, and the infotainment system is VERY user friendly. You can control the radio via touchscreen, the steering wheel controls, the scroll wheel below the screen, or the hard buttons by the climate control, whatever you prefer. It's nice compared to some newer cars that rely too much on touch interface. The audio system is partially by Bose, which in my opinion makes really poor sounding products. Anything Bose I've ever heard has been overpriced garbage, That said the G35 has a solid sound system. Not a ton of bass, and not much adjustment able to be done, but he music is clear and for most people will sound just fine. The leather isn't the softest, but is easy to clean and holds up very well. If you're stepping down from a more expensive vehicle, the interior won't blow you away, but if you're stepping up from a lesser more mainstream vehicle, you'll definitely be impressed. Value for the Money: 5/5. I bought this car because there was no other car on the market that was as good for the price. I cross shopped a BMW 335xi, a Merc C300, and an Audi A4, before I bought the G35. The other cars are nice, but the G35 has more power, features, and better reliability than all of them, for less money. The only car that has as strong an engine is the 335xi, but for the same price, the BMW won't have nav, sunroof, back up cam, music HD, adaptive cruise....ect, ect, ect. For the moeny, the G35x is absolutely impossible to beat. If you can find a 300+ horsepower, AWD sedan, loaded with leather, nav, sunroof, ect. for less than a G35x.... then buy it. I promise no other vehicle on the market can compete with a used G35x for shear value of what you get. Reliability: 5/5 I came from a CTS-V than was in the shop more than on the road, it felt like. The G35x needed a hub bearing replaced, which was done udner warranty, and thats it. My car has 71K miles on it now and it is literally still tight as a drum. No squeaks, rattles, and runs absolutely perfect. I'm literally amazed at how well this car still drives. My Cadillac was falling apart at 70k miles, literally. The G35x at 70k miles is hard to tell from new, other than a few scuffs on the paint, and a slight wear mark of the steering wheel.

The 2007 Infiniti G35x is a stunning machine. Loaded with great valued features and with stunning performance, it is the ultimate car in practicality. It is great in the winter, and on dry surfaces too. There is a brillinat exhaust note that you feel in your gut past 5500 rpms that is addicting. Drive one and you'll see why...

I recently bought my G35X and I must admit, It is even better than I thought it would be. I did a lot of research before buying this car, and saw a lot of good reviews. After having this car for a few days, it is my opinion that this is one of the finest automobiles you can buy. The power is awesome, you never lack for acceleration. The handling is tight and precise. The AWD lets you never lose traction. Overall a great car. One of my favorite things is the stereo. I have the Bose system and it rocks! Powerful bass and crisp treble. You will find yourself cranking it up. I drove the lexus is 250, the bmw 328I and this car is way better than both of them. Gotta recommend the G35X if you are in the market for a car.
