Resources for the Repair and Maintenance of your Infiniti
The mass air flow (MAF) sensor may fail, resulting in drivability issues and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light.
A brake pulsation or steering wheel vibration may be noted when braking, especially at highway speeds. Our technicians tell us that replacing the front brake backing plates, resurfacing or replacing the front brake rotors, and inspecting the front brake pads and caliper hardware and replacing as necessary will generally correct this concern.
Intermittent failure of a purge control valve in the evaporative emission system can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A failed valve should be replaced to correct this problem.
The rear power door may not open or close properly, or make a grinding noise from inside the rear trim panel. If this occurs our technicians recommend to check for loose or damaged hardware at the rear door motor. Replace damaged hardware as required and use bolt retaining compound when reassembling the door motor hardware.
All wheel drive vehicles may develop a groaning type noise from the steering rack when centering the steering wheel after turning right at slow speeds, most noticeable when driven from a cold start. Our technicians tell us a revised steering rack is available to correct this concern.

Infiniti Owners' Reviews
I HAVE A 2005 G35 JUST HIT 100K AND I LOVE THIS CAR... NO PROBLEMS EXCEPT NOW IM HAVING A OIL LEAK ... THEY SAY ITS MY OIL CODER ORING LEAKING AND SOMETHING ABOUT MY SUSPENSION COMPRESSION BUSHING...HELP ME..CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN CAUSE EVERYONE ELSE CANT FIND PROBLEM OR DONT KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT....
The problems began in early 2012, when we signed up for a new “Express Service and Oil Change” program at our local dealer. We thought that this new offering, given that it allowed us to obtain service without an appointment, would make life easier. Instead, it has caused us untold hours of lost time, and consistent struggles to get Infiniti to deliver the level of service we had come to expect.
Despite multiple attempts over the course of a whole year to have the service department address problems with alarming swaying of my car at highway speeds, Infiniti repeatedly claimed nothing was wrong with my car…until they recently determined that both of my rear upper links and the driver side rear lower link (bushings) were completely worn out and needed total replacement!
• I learned that several service technicians assigned to me during this period, who claimed nothing was wrong with the car, were later fired: a telling revelation that did nothing to diminish the dangerous situation in which Infiniti placed me and my family.
• Technicians told me during my last visit that my power steering fluid was “dirty/degraded”, my coolant was “diluted”, and my brake fluid and automatic transmission fluid were also “dirty/degraded”. I subsequently discovered that these were fictitious fabrications, revealing an astonishing pattern of dishonest “upselling”, and oversight of issues that DID require attention.
• I have had to have my CD-player replaced twice (under warranty) by Infiniti, because faulty refurbished units were installed. The last unit installed was also faulty, but Miller Infiniti refuses to replace unless I pay through the nose, now that I am conveniently out of warranty (by a matter of months).
The hours I have had to spend at Infiniti over the past year, vainly trying to get the type of service Infiniti customers should receive without a second thought, have been taxing. The evasive dishonesty has been shocking, the underhanded fabrications disheartening, and the stonewalling infuriating. When I wrote to corporate, the President of the company expressed encouraging concern, but then passed the matter on to his head of US operations, who was so condescending that it was obvious one little customer's problems with their QX4 was not his problem. We had the issues repaired, at great expensive, by a trustworthy 3rd party mechanic, and have since purchased 2 vehicles: A Lexus RX350, and a BMW X5. Never again will we purchase an Infiniti.
idol is low.install a new throttle sensor and is the same. is there a way to install. joe t
I love my infiniti, however, I have had to replace my headlights 3 times within the last 3 months. Also my computer dash board system is going haywire!!!!!!. I can't control my heat, radio or even nagivation system at times. Is this a recall problem?
I bought my 2004 FX35 with 1800 miles on it. I absolutely adored this car from the beginning. It did have some issues that the dealer took care of right away. The only problem I have after 120k miles is the driver door lock and window. I now have to manually lock the driver door and during the winter and I cannot open my window all the way as it will not go back up by itself. Other than that I would buy another one in a heartbeat.
