2004 Infiniti G35 Problems
The fuel filler hose may crack and cause a leak when refueling, which
could lead to fire. A recall was issued and the fuel hose will be
replaced under warranty.
o-ring gaskets on the valve covers that go around the spark-plug tubes leaked oil into the back spark plugs on both sides of the motor. My husband is a ASE certified mechanic, so we bought gaskets for him to change them. When he removed the valve covers he realized the o-ring gaskets that go around the spark plug tubes cannot be replaced -- they are made to the valve covers! We had to buy a set of valve covers at $600+ to be able to put the...

2004 Infiniti G35 Reviews
INFINITI CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS!!- DO NOT BUY ONE!!I own a 2004 G35x - where do I start. My So-called stainless steel muffler had to be replaced when the car was 7 yrs old & I had to replace it. I called Infiniti and they said I live in Cleveland & considering the environment, it happens. I asked if they cld give me a discount and they STATED & I QUOTE "they reviewed my request & denied it because I DID NOT SPEND ENOUGH MONEY IN THEIR SERVICE DEPT, even though I only went to them for the 1st 5 yrs.THIS COST ME $1400.00 My Doors are RUSTING out do to faulty metal that was used. There is a 10 yr recall, but I have to have an actual HOLE in my doors in order for them to replace them. Totally embarrassed that everyone can see the rust coming through Same with RIMS. PITTED in the 1st 6 mo. I was told Sorry for your luck!
I WOULD NEVER AND I MEAN NEVER BUY OR RECOMMEND AN INFINITI TO ANYONE. I OWNED A CADILLAC AND RIMS PITTED, THEY GAVE ME NEW RIMS!! AS I sit here are write this, my ABS, VDC off, AWD, and SLIP lights are on. Took vehicle to AutoZone, Sears and NTB- no code could be called up.. I think I have to go to the dealership- OH BOY-THINKING I'M GOING TO GET EFFED AGAIN.
I purchased my 2004 G35 Coupe new and took ownership in Sept 03. It is a great looking car that still is appealing today. The seats are super comfortable and the car is a rocket ship with super acceleration and great stopping ability. Now for the bad news. The fit and finish, especially for the interior is not up to par for a intro luxury car. There are tons of rattles coming from everywhere. I'm am a very conservative driver and have only driven a little over 33,000 miles in 5 1/2 years. The brakes were a problem for 03 and 04 G35s and the factory extended the warranty for 3yr/36,000 miles on brakes. I changed to ceramic pads and they are much quieter, cleaner, and should last longer than the 13,000 miles owners were getting out of the OEM pads. The biggest problem with all G35 Coupes are the tires. They all seem to feather on the front inside tires and develope alot of noise around 8,000 miles. The Coupes tires cannot be rotated because they are staggered (different size in front and back). The rear tires have their own unique problems. They wear prematurely on the middle treads. The back tires need to be replaced anywhere from 12,000-15,000 miles. Tires are the biggest cost of ownership for the G35 Coupe 03-07. The sedans do not have any issues here. The last problem is the paint is quite weak and very prone to chips on the front bumper and hood. There are numerous forums discussing the problems I have mentioned.
I've had the G35 coupe for a few years now (bought it used) and it has been a really nice car to drive. The engine is really powerful (much more so than my old corolla). Since I have an extended warranty I haven't really had to do much on the car. I would say that it feels a little heavy when taking tight turns but overall the handling is great. I just need to watch the accelerator. Fuel mileage is not that great...maybe 18mpg.
Fantastic car: quick, agile, and the AWD handles like a champ in the snow!
