Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
At the 2004 New York auto show, Infiniti introduced a concept version of the next-generation M45 sedan. The general shape of the M35 differs little from the concept.

A Lane Departure Warning system is available on the M35. The system helps signal the driver of a pending unintended lane departure. To accomplish this, it recognizes lane markings and calculates the vehicle's speed and the distance between the vehicle and the marking.

In the M35, a 3.5-liter V-6 sends 275 horsepower to a five-speed automatic transmission with a manual-shift mode. Rear- or all-wheel drive is available. Infiniti's available Rear Active Steer system works with motor-driven control and adjusts the geometry of the rear according to steering input and the car's speed.


Exterior
Combining elements of the automaker's full-size Q45 sedan and the smaller G35, the M35 is built on a next-generation FM platform, which is also used for Infiniti's G35 and FX models.

Infiniti promotes the M's "low, aggressive hoodline [that] flows into the anchored shoulders." The body has short overhangs and a long, 114.2-inch wheelbase. The rear end features L-shaped LED taillamps and quad tailpipes. Wide front and rear tracks are intended to enhance stability. Lightweight body components include aluminum-alloy inner and outer door panels, hood and deck-lid panels. A rear spoiler is available.

A power-sliding sunroof is standard. All-wheel-drive models ride on 18-inch tires. The Sport ed...

The rear end features L-shaped LED taillamps and quad tailpipes. Wide front and rear tracks are intended to enhance stability. Lightweight body components include aluminum-alloy inner and outer door panels, hood and deck-lid panels. A rear spoiler is available.

A power-sliding sunroof is standard. All-wheel-drive models ride on 18-inch tires. The Sport edition gets 19-inch tires, a sport-tuned suspension, the Rear Active Steer system and xenon headlights. Non-Sport M35s have a new 18-inch, five-spoke wheel option. Each M sedan measures 192.6 inches long overall and 70.8 inches wide.


Interior
Climate-controlled seats are available on the base M35 and standard on M35 Sport and M35x models

Five people fit inside the M35. Standard equipment includes leather-appointed seats, an Intelligent Key with push-button start, voice recognition, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, an in-dash six-CD changer with MP3 playback capability, a 10-way power driver's seat and a Vehicle Information System with a 7-inch LCD screen.

A "Solar Eclipse" instrument lighting system is on the dashboard. Heated power reclining rear seats and a Bose Studio Surround audio system with 14 speakers are available. Options include Intelligent Cruise Control, a DVD-based navigation system with voice-activated destination entry and a backseat video entertainment system with an 8-inch roof-mounted screen.

For 2007, a technology package bundles the Bose audio system and a DVD video/audio drive along with Intelligent Cruise Control.


Under the Hood
The 3.5-liter V-6 produces 275 hp and 268 pounds-feet of torque; it drives a five-speed automatic transmission. Infiniti's all-wheel-drive system on the M35x automatically transfers optimum torque to each wheel according to road and driving conditions.

Safety
Standard safety equipment includes side curtain and seat-mounted side-impact airbags, all-disc antilock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution, a Vehicle Dynamic Control stability system and a tire pressure monitoring system. Brake-operated precrash front seat belts, which tighten under emergency braking in anticipation of a crash or an evasive maneuver, are available. A RearView Monitor with a wheel-trajectory view is also available. For 2007, the M35 gets the option of auto-leveling, adaptive xenon headlights that shine in the direction of a turn.

Driving Impressions
This V-6 version of Infiniti's M sedan is less vigorous than its M45 cousin, which packs a 325-hp V-8. But in ordinary driving, the difference isn't as big as the numbers might suggest. Most owners should be thoroughly satisfied with an M35.

The seats promise firm support and ample cushioning. Outboard occupants get plenty of legroom, headroom and foot room, but the center spot in the backseat is high and hard, with no headroom to speak of. Visibility is generally good, but wide B-pillars can impair the view a bit.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
