The Infiniti I35 is a superb vehicle which does many things easily and well. This car can be a serious bullet when it wants to be. It can go to 120 MPH with relative ease. The I35 shines in the 35-80MPH range but high end speed is hampered by the 4-speed automatic transmission. This car would have been complete with a 5-speed auto. My main gripe with this car is its comfort. I own a 2003 I35 Sport, and while its handling is as if it was on rails, the seats are not comfortable at all. The seats do a good job of keeping you where you need to be at high speeds, but I really don't do 100+ MPH every single day; if at all. My other gripe is having bought this car used. I really wish I could have bought it brand new because this is a car that you'd buy, give it TLC, and hand it down to your children type of car. It was a demo, and it will be the last demo I would ever buy. Overall, the Infiniti I35 is a top notch vehicle, and I would recommend it to anyone who'd be looking for a fast, reliable, and good looking sedan.

I bought a 2003 I35 in 2007 off lease with 42k miles. Had been wrecked, but minor damage. Save for general maintenance, and one issue with a counter-vibration sensor going bad, I had no issues with this car for 5 years. That's right, 5 years. And I drove the heck out of this car, putting nearly 90,000 miles on it in those 5 years. The steering was just right, the suspension, while somewhat tight, was appropriate for the car. Vibration and interior noise could be more than I wanted on rougher roads, it was what I expected in a mid-level sedan. I paid $15k used, and traded it in last month for $3500 with 134k miles on it. Everything on the car still worked perfectly, and the interior and exterior held up extremely well for a 10 year old car. NO electrical issues, no engine issues, no leaks, nothing. The only thing I notices was that it burned about 1 qt of oil every 1500 miles. I enjoyed it so much I bought a G35 to replace it. Used of course, but expect to get anothe worry free 5 years out of this one.

Driving for 2 years

by from on October 25, 2008

Even after 5 years this car drives like new. It is an amazing piece of Engineering. I have it for about 3 years.

Spectacular Bose Sound combined with a quiet ride and powerful engine make this a very enjoyable car to own. Nice bonus is the superb braking performance and beautiful interior. The only complaint is a turning radius that is wider than some similar cars. The traditional exterior design is well done but won't turn any heads if that is what you want.

Great looking, reliable car

by from Chicago, IL on February 16, 2009

I enjoy driving this luxury car. It was affordable, yet has many options and big enough for the whole family. It's very smooth and quiet with a great sound system (Bose).

Amazing machine

It is probably the best value automobile out there; the feel is amazing, the road handling is great. I would have preferred an mp3 CD (not available at the time) but the Bose 6 CD changer is excellent...

Looks great, drives great and has plenty of room for a mid size car. Love the acceleration and sports car like feel. The turning radius however, leaves a lot to be desired. The leather interior and other luxory appointments are impressive. I was fortunate to find this 2003 used with only 23,000 miles on it and quite frankly it looks and drives like new. I have already put 5000 miles on it in less than 3 months with both city and highway mileage and I average around 23MPG...not bad for such a large and enthusiastic v6 powerplant. I hope that this Infinity will be as reliable and long lasting as was my Q45.

This car is every bit as solid as expected. It is easy to maintain (transmission oil and engine oil changes) and get's remarkable mpg for the 255 hoursepower engine. It starts easily and averages 26 mpg around town which is more than my Escort did.
