Purchased my M35x used and have to say its by far the best vehicle I've owned. Coming from a 745i, I find myself in the drivers seat more than with the BMW. Maintainence costs are definately better and Infiniti offers a protection plan (Infiniti Elite Protection Plan - Not 3rd party) you can purchase to give you a piece of mind about repairs. AWD performance is fantastic!! Have gotten to work and home in snow storms with ease. My 3yr old son loves the fold down tv, and its motorized so I don't have to do much. Have taken 3 NY-FL trips within the same year with only basic oil changes and this vehicle has never let me down. If and when it does however (no vehicle is perfect), I do have the piece of mind that I can get it repaired at any Infiniti dealer with my Elite Protection!

Excellent value for dollar

Well, I drove the G35's the M3's, the M5's and even took a swing at an Audi TT and a Nissan Maxima. Finally decided on a used M35x and have been thrilled with it. No pretentiousness of the BMW moniker, a little too quietly understated. Perhaps a too plain for most people on the outside. It really doesn't look like an expensive vehicle unless you really know your cars. Inside however, the fit and finish is superiour to anything in the market running about the same dollars. The one I selected has the gorgeous Bourbon leather and the heated and cooled seats provide a level of interior and comfort that rates well above the competition. Performance wise, the V6 growls with authority, and nips along quite nicely in traffic. However, it is thirsty averaging 23 mpg at 60 mph. But, if you buy a car with this level of fit and finish, you expect that fuel consumption it won't be on a par with a Honda Fit. It handles wonderfully. On the corners it tracks without body lean, and on the straights it is very comfortable to cruise with a great exhaust note when pressed. However, on a heavily truck tracked road (like our embarrassing TransCanada highway) it tends to wander the ruts and can be a bit of a handful. The solution? Drive in the left lane with the traffic speed. It consistently rates at the top in quality surveys for used cars, and true to form, it has been excellent thus far. It has never let me down in the snow, and the all wheel drive is a very nice bonus to an already stellar car. Pros: Excellent performer, fun to drive. Extremely comfortable. Great in snow. Cons: gas mileage, rut wandering, and somewhat bland styling.

The "Most" car I have owned

This car is a computer on wheels (lane departure warning system, intelligent cruise control, Bluetooth technology, rear DVD entertainment system, MP3 player, GPS, 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound system, back-up camera, XM Satellite radio) but it is also a comfortable car (heated and cooled seats, driver's seat memory, dual front air conditioning zones, rear heated and reclining seats, power rear sunshade and terrific ergonomics)...and it goes like the wind! The M35x has enough power to move the car effortlessly while the All Wheel Drive is surefooted. It is roomy (I have 3 child car seats in the back) yet it is nimble. It has so many safety features (4-wheel ABS brakes, 1st and 2nd row curtain head airbags, side airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, stability control and Driveline traction control) that my insurance rates dropped. It is, simply put, a "lot" of car.

The True Definition of a Sports Sedan

by from Dallas on November 20, 2009

This car is truly a 4 door sports car. handling is on par with BMW (and I've had three), the acceleration is adequate, but the M45 (V8), is a beast. All around, a joy to drive.

Might be over-rated

After 2000 miles driven, I am somewhat disappointed by this car. The thrill of its rapid acceleration wore off quickly in everyday driving. That's a kick during test drives, but once you start routine coming and going, you probably aren't going to be reaching for maximum torque everytime a light turns green. The car does not corner as well as, or provide the fun-factor of, German sedans. The gas mileage so far, despite my being preocuppied with how poor it is and, therefore, driving lightly, doesn't go much above 17 mpg in mixed highway/city.

Love this car. I have only had it for 10 days but cant find anything to complain about. The only downfall I have found is the fuel economy. I am averaging about 20 mpg and I drive about 60 miles a da on back roads and highways. I was looking for a car thats fun to drive and I have found it. The allwheel drive makes a sedan feel like a coupe and I have no regrets.

I purchased a used M35x about three months ago- the car had higher miles (almost 90k) and has been a dream to drive. Runs smooth and quiet and have already gotten a lot of compliments on the looks of the car. The interior is plush and love the Bose sound system. I have had several Nissan vehicles in the past and without a doubt will be buying another Infiniti. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone who is looking for a smooth riding, fun to drive sedan.

Great car you would be foolish to buy anything else for the value that this car brings you. Lexus, BMW, Acura do not hold a candle to M35 sport that I purchased. You do not see many around but you will make your own decision and recognize the features because outperform and out price the competition

I don't understand the people who allegedly have purchased this car and still claim the German sedans handle better. Why did you not buy one???? The M35X is truly a great car. I have had mine for 8XXX miles and love it. The handling is really exceptional compared to others in this class. The only thing I don't like is the gas mileage. I average 20mpg. How can you spend 50K on a car and end up not liking it? You need to do more homework, pal, before you buy your next car. I drove the dealers nuts with all of the test drives and demo's I kept overnight. I am very happy with this car.
