About Infiniti G35
Infiniti G35 is an entry-level luxury vehicle manufactured by the Japanese automaker Infiniti division of Nissan from 2003 to 2008. The first Infiniti G35 was introduced in 2003 model year to replace the Infiniti G20 as a rear-wheel drive sports 4-door sedan. As a member of the famous Infiniti G-series (Q40/Q60), Infiniti G35 has received many awards and recognition from authorities such as Car and Driver magazine, J.D. Power and Associates and Motor Trend magazine and so on. The IIHS also ranked it as the safest car on the Luxury Mid-size category. Infiniti G35 has been produced through two generations before it was replaced by the G37 sedan for the 2009 model year.
The second generation Infiniti G35 (2002-2007) was released to North America in early 2002 for the 2003 model year. It was offered base Infiniti G35 (rear-wheel driver) and Infiniti G35x (all-wheel drive) trim levels. Infiniti G35 then got powers from a 3.5 L V6 engine with horsepower increased from 260 hp to 281 hp and finally to 298 hp. And the V6 engine was mated to either a 5-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission. Then the second generation Infiniti G35 (2007-2008) underwent a major revision. Its engine options added new 3.7 L V6 engine with horsepower increased from 306 hp to 330, 328 and 348. A new 7-speed automatic transmission was also added into its powertrain.
Infiniti G35 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
It is the nature law that anything in the world would wear and tear until perish, without any exception for Infiniti G35. In order to slow down its wearing process, the best way is to diagnose and solve problems happen to Infiniti G35 as early as possible:
First, brakes and rotors wear prematurely. Infiniti G35 owners complained at the car repair statistic site CarComplaints.com that when the vehicle reached at about 10,000 miles, the brake pedals become difficult to press and vibrating, brakes are noisy; at the same time, the brakes respond poorly and slowly. For your driving safety, you really should get your G35 brake fluid pump, G35 brake pad set and G35 brake dust shields inspected thoroughly.
Second, suspension and transmission system failed. Experience Infiniti G35 drivers told that after a while of driving, the steering wheel would become vibrating, steering pulling to the left or right, grinding or roaring noises coming from the tire area, bouncing and bottoming out while driving. Any signs like above appear on your Infiniti G35, you should get the control arm, steering knuckle, wheel bearing, coil springs and sway bar link checked. As for transmission failure in G35, broken valve body and faulty transmission are often the culprits.
However, besides above parts, some electrical and engine parts also should get your meticulous maintenance. If your Infiniti G35 door is creating unusual noises and the power door locks do not work or behave erratically, your G35 door lock actuator needs a thorough inspection. As for some parts that influence engine performance such as camshaft position sensor, radiator hose, timing cover, engine control module and intake manifold gasket, you really should attach much importance to them.
