2004 G Review by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/04/2011. Trim: 2004 Infiniti G35 Sedan w/Leather, Owned 6 years.
Pros: As a grand tourer, this car is excellent. I have driven the twisties, rough roads and cross country. It is comfortable and handles confidently in every situation. Commuting through canyons was a joy. The stock sound is good, and the climate control has worked flawlessly in 116 degree summer days and 15 degree winter mornings. It also is one of the few cars of its size where I can sit comfortably with a sun roof. It has run nearly flawlessly for 7 years and about 75,000 miles. The only problems I have had were from "user error" (superficial body damage) or from incompetent mechanics.
Cons: Few. Some of the interior components are cheap for a car in this class. Newer models have improved greatly upon this. (The leather seats have held very well, however, so that isn't something to worry about.) The throttle and brakes can be touchy. Understand bargain seekers, THIS IS NOT AN INEXPENSIVE CAR TO MAINTAIN. Maintained properly, it will give you excellent service, but it goes through front brakes and rotors, and all tires at about 20K to 25K miles. A full front brake job will run $500, 4 tires $600-$800, and a 60K service over $1,000. If you're young and looking for a nice, sporty car, this will serve you well, but remember to put some money aside.
Overall review: An excellent car that will serve you reliably, but takes some TLC ($$$) and hard on gas.

Squeaky by NoWayHosea on 02/08/2008. Trim: 2004 Infiniti G35 Sedan w/Leather, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The styling is great. The car is gorgeous and the interior is plush and comforable with great conveniences.
Cons: OMG-The car gets horrible gas mileage, the handling is off, the engine noise is LOUD, and the brakes...oh my goodness, how they SQUEAK! The car drives very 'heavy'. It is not as quick as I would have thought and it has a lot of pull. You have to floor it in order for it to take off, but it is still pretty quick compared to some.
Overall review: The car is great to look at and the interior is comfortable. Not a commuters car as it is a gas-guzzler and as so many have pointed out, you will have break issues with this car. I would not recommend this car overall.

My bad choice in cars... by Willy on 02/16/2005. Trim: 2004 Infiniti G35 Coupe w/Leather/6MT, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Looks good, not too expensive
Cons: Clutch problems with this vehichle. Cannot shift at high RPM's like a sports car or it will go at 18,000 miles. Brake otors also bad and very often cause squeaking.
Overall review: This car is nice to look at, but always in the shop.
