Infiniti used cars like the G35 is the automakers entry level vehicle to their luxury brand. Before the G35, the Infiniti Motor Corporation had the G20 as its compact luxury sedan and this vehicle competed with the likes of Lexus, BMW Audi and Mercedes. For some reason the G20 didnt go over well with consumers because it was too pricey and it lack certain luxurious gadgets you would expect to have for a vehicle at that price. So in 2003 the automaker launches the G35 as its new entry level sedan and gave it a huge improvement in redesign over its G20 Model. My research will be on this highly improved entry model and to see how the G35 would be like as a used vehicle.
Infiniti G35 used cars:
When visiting different website forums on the G35 one of the complaints about the G20 was its lack of room in the vehicle; the G35 has much more space than its predecessor. It did however get bad reviews from its 2003 and 2004 models for still lacking in interior quality. In 2005 the motor company did however fix that problem with that years model.
I could only find one fuel statistic for the Infiniti G35 and this had a 12.5-litre, per 100km, for city driving and 8.5-litre, per 100km, for highway driving. It has been said from different organizations that tested the G35s fuel efficiency, that the manual transmission is better for city driving. It also mentions that the all wheel drive transmission is heavier on gas by a few points and that is because of the weight added to the vehicle.
When the first G35 rolled off the production line in 2003, both the sedan and the coupe only came in an automatic transmission. Later that year the motor company decided to give the option for a manual transmission for the coupe. In 2004 Infiniti introduced its all-wheel drive transmission and that was only available in automatic. Most models carry the 280 horsepower engine but if you do decide to get it in a manual transmission, the horsepower increases to 298.
Lets look at the pros and cons of the G35 as a used vehicle:
1-There are problems with the brake pads wearing down to fast in later models.
2-There are problems with the tires wearing down uneven.
3-There are complaints from various website forums on the G35 that the clutch for the six speed can be hard to use.
4-The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety organization gave it a good rating for a frontal crash test done to it.
I hope this helps if your thinking of buying Infiniti used cars like the G35.
