Great Entry Level Luxury by Rick (CA) on 05/29/2012. Trim: 2003 Infiniti G35 Sport Sedan w/Leather, Owned 9 years.
Pros: When this vehicle came out it was ahead of the curve on styling! The horsepower to weight ratio meant a fast vehicle that took hills very well. The price varied from high $20Ks to mid $30Ks, which was a sweet spot at the time for value luxury unlike like today's G37 and G25. Customizing or adding personality is still affordable to this day, and after market items were popular for car enthusiasts of the old Nissan Skyline.
Cons: Purchasing the fresh car allowed for challenges and opportunities. Two recalls that you can find on the internet (brakes and exhaust), but the major two for me were the power steering unit cracking around 60000 miles, and the transmission not having a sixth gear resolved later. Infiniti offers great customer service, but there is a little inconsistency by dealership.
Overall review: Still a beautiful car with a great paint job and performance. 130,000 miles and still running very well. Word of Mouth: Estimated life span is about 200,000 miles on this reliable Nissan engine, first major repair is "normally" around 146,000.

First Year of the New Expectation by Senator101 on 08/23/2008. Trim: 2003 Infiniti G35 Sport Sedan w/Leather, Owned 5 years.
Pros: First year of appealing design. Half way through the year, they made 2003 G35s without the plastic square on the back of the trunk. I purchased the vehicle right after that change. Performance and less-plasticy parts are better than the successing models. There were recalls, but Infiniti/Nissan had high integrity at the time to replace everything complimentary, including the first set of brake pads by 36k Miles. This vehicle was the pioneer of the new standard.
Cons: RECALLS were annoying, a little uneasy, and time consuming. (ie: brakes, fuel vapor, etc..) Abnormal flaws were costly. Drivers Seat Chair Assembly About $1000, Steer Fluid Box Leak $1600, Original tires did not last more than 27k due to performance rating. Therefore my COST OF OWNERSHIP was greater than a BMW.
Overall review: This vehicle was best value at the time, as well as a head turner. I never came close to having "Buyer's Remorse." It is still a very stylish vehicle with performance. RULES: 1) Find an Infiniti Dealership Service Department you trust. I found out the hard way that not all dealerships thrive for the same excellence. However when you do find one who values a long lasting business relationship, they will take the extra steps to tighten and adjust things to keep you happy, and vehicle in tip-top shape. TRUST ME 2) Ever since 2007 I feel as though the Nissan Corporation lost some integrity and perceptual mapping skills. 3) Be mindful to unique circumstances that will result in a chunk of money from your wallet. (Know that a $1k+ expense will happen more than the 30k Tune-Ups.)

Great semi luxury vehicle! by Dale, speed enthusiast from Denver! on 07/22/2008. Trim: 2003 Infiniti G35 Sport Sedan, Owned 5 years.
Pros: I like the ride, handling, looks. It is fun to drive and reasonably frugal on gas for the amount of power it has.
Cons: I supected a problem with the brakes when noticing a lot of brake dust on the wheels after a few miles. The car required three sets of brakes within the first 18,000 miles. The last change required new rotors, which Infiniti wanted me to pay for. With a lot of hassle they finally agreed to fix the brakes at no charge.
Overall review: The feature I liked the best was the handling, which as not too firm, but was firm enough to handle well. The seats are very comfortable and supportive. It is very quick and responsive. All in all the Infiniti is very satisfactory except for the brake proplem.
