About Infiniti I35
Infiniti I35 is a mid-size vehicle manufactured by the Japanese automaker Nissan Motors from 2002 to 2004. The first Infiniti I35 was introduced in 2002 as a rebranded model of theI30 luxury sedan. It actually is the Nissan Cefiro A32, A33 series sedan that was sold through the Infiniti brand in North America, the Middle East and Africa. Though Infiniti I35 had only been produced for about two years, it is a popular 4-door sedan in its times.
The 2001 Infiniti I35 was an upgraded vehicle with minor styling changer, minor revisions to the interior, new optional equipment, larger brakes, a retuned suspension system, a standard traction control system and optional electronic stability control. It was called as I35 because its engine displacement got increased from 3.0 to 3.5 L. Infiniti I35 was powered by a 3.5 L VQ35DE V6 engine that could produce 255 horsepower. And this engine was fitted along with either a 4-speed automatic transmission or a 5-speed manual transmission. In September 2004, Nissan announced that I35 production would cease and the model year 2004 would be the last year for the I35. Until then, Infiniti I35 as the last remaining front-wheel drive vehicle faded out from Infiniti lineup.
Infiniti I35 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
As the renamed version of Infiniti I30, Infiniti I35 more or less shares some problems with it as well. When faced with your Infiniti I35, what you should do is to learn about how to diagnose and solve these problems as early as possible:
First, oil sludge resulting in engine failure and excessive oil consumption. This is the most reported problem about Infiniti I35 in the car repair statistics site CarComplaints.com. Many Infiniti I35 owners complained that when the I35 reached at about 80,000 miles, the engine started to gulp oil and when at about 90,000 miles, oil sludge happened to I35. What's more, the vehicle is harder to start and engine performance got reduced. If your Infiniti I35 is also showing these signs and the Check Engine Light is activated, then get the I35 radiator and I35 camshaft position sensor checked thoroughly.
Second, steering failure. According to the first-hand information from experienced Infiniti I35 drivers, steering failure is also a serious problem on Infiniti I35. The specific symptoms of this problem include the steering wheel becomes difficult to turn, there are power steering fluid dripping from the vehicle and a sudden drop in fluids resulting in low fluid levels. If your Infiniti I35 is also suffering from above symptoms, please get the I35 power steering hose inspected as soon as possible in case worse conditions emerge.
Apart from above auto parts that actually possess a rather long lifespan, there are many auto parts actually easy to go wrong due to harsh working environment or extensive use. In Infiniti I35, the electrical part neutral safety switch is very vulnerable. If you notice the engine does not crank in park but cranks in neutral or does not crank in neutral but cranks in park, or does not crank at all no matter what gear the transmission is engaged or engine cranks in any gear, then the I35 neutral safety switch must get replaced. Other parts such as fog light, headlight or wiper blades need get routine maintenance as well.
