I bought my I-35 in late 02. I have put 140,000 miles on it. It's been a great car. Excellent acceleration, front seats extremely comfortable, heated seats, and steering wheel work well. I had a major problem at 120,000 with crankshaft sprockets. I know this is not typical since I have asked around but is was expensive to repair. Other than that, this is the best car I have ever owned and plan to put about 250,000 miles on it before I turn it over.

I bought my I35 in the end of 2008! So far the car is been very reliable and no problems at all. It has 105,000 miles on it. The overall performance is very impressive, although there is noticeable torque steer! It feels very solid on the road and it is pleasant to drive! The Bose sounds is great but only 200 Watts. All the options and buttons work just fine and never gave me a problem. The heated steering wheel is also a big plus! Nissan's 3.5L VQ engine is what makes this car a real winner, every time you press the gas pedal the power is there! It has only 4 speed tranny but it is so smooth you can never guess that it is a 4 speed! Although it is 7 years old car, the leather is in excellent condition. I strongly recommend this car!

I bought my 02 I35 about six months ago with 55k and have had no problems since. I put over 100 miles on my car a day traveling from work and back. I've put it through some pretty strenuous driving going in and out of the city everyday. No matter how hard I drive it, it still runs and sounds silky smooth when i pull up to my driveway at the end of the night. Good power, awesome braking, responsive handling, and an overall luxurious ride make me very happy. I look forward to my next 200k in this car, haha.

Does Everything Well

I didn't know what to expect when I brought this car. I knew it was something like a Maxima Supreme. I have been impressed by the comfort and performance of this car. The only thing that I don like is the fact that the suspensions is a lot soft if you have more than three passengers. I like the Bose system though it is underpowered. The features of the this car are becoming a little outdated if you are into tech toys. Overall I think my car is 4 of 5.

Purchased a 2002 Infiniti I35 with 88k miles on it. The car was in phenomenal condition when purchased. My favorite features are heated leather front and rear seats, kick but stereo that includes a subwoofer. The acceleration is unreal. The road noise inside the car is non-exsistent, and finally the sunroof......Need I say more? I will without question be purchasing another Infiniti in the future.

Comfort, Style, A true driving experience

by from Madison, WI on October 10, 2012

Originally I had been looking at Nissan Maximas and I30's and I35's. It was I30 for 2000, and 2001. Then the I35 name kicked in 2002, 2003, 2004. I ultimately chose the I35 because I wanted the 3.5 V6...
Originally I had been looking at Nissan Maximas and I30's and I35's. It was I30 for 2000, and 2001. Then the I35 name kicked in 2002, 2003, 2004. I ultimately chose the I35 because I wanted the 3.5 V6. I was looking at Maxima GLE's which is the luxury Maximas. I started test driving I35s and found that they were a bit more fun. The styling is a little more unique and it gets looks. It's a very comfortable car for a road trip. Overall I achieve about 25 or 26 mpg. This car has no problem getting up to speed or passing.

Have owned my Infiniti I-35 since spring of 2002...had 8K miles (used by the dealer's ad person) when purchased. Wonderful acceleration and still stylish after all these years. Holds the road well in snow and sleet without chains. Only drawback is its wide turning radius. Currently has 133K miles and going strong...my mechanic says it "runs like a top".

I got my i35 as a first car with 117k, this car has great ergonomics, looks and performance for what it is. I really loved the interior and power, the radio was excellent. Some weaknesses are that mine got 18-20 mpg around town, the turning radius is larger then it should be for its size, and the interior faux wood isn't the most convincing. It had a lot of repairs that needs to be done during my ownership including tranny /motor mounts, control arms, A/C compressor, and radiator and hoses. This may be poor past maintance though and it had been two other people's first cars. I'd beware if you wanted to get this as a kids first car if they think they're a racecar driver because they might not be mature enough for the speed of the car. Mine was eventually rear ended after nearly two years of ownership and with 13k put on it. I'm looking into now getting either another i35, g35, or maybe a Lexus GS.
