Infiniti G20 Problems
In areas where the roads are "salted" during the winter, fuel filler pipe corrosion can occur, which could lead to a fire. A recall was issued and the fuel filler pipe will be replaced if it has deteriorated due to corrosion.
The EGR passageways may become clogged.
You may be able to extend the life of the automatic transmission by fitting an inline filter and/or an automatic transmission oil cooler to the transmission system.

Infiniti G20 Reviews
In 2004 I purchased used a 1995 Infinity G20t with 114,00 miles. Immediately the A/c stopped blowing cold air. Took to a local A/c shop and had it recharged and also a leak detecting agent. It's 2012 and it still is working great. I have replaced both front drive axles, a lower control arm,struts,alternator,radiator,water pump,hoses,belts,battery(twice),brakes and tires. I just had transmission seviced a couple of months ago. I do most of the work myself which saves a lot of $ and in doing so I use nothing but the best in synthetic lubricants. It now has over 148,000 miles and I love it. I originally paid 3,200 so with this and the maint costs I figure I've spent roughly less than $500.00 per year thus far and remember that's including the purchase price. This is my around town and work vehicle. Did I mention everything works and has never left me stranded.The leather interior is about an 8 in a scale of 1 to 10. It even still gets the OEM MPG. So, what do I think of this vehicle? It's a winner. They should never have discontinued it.
I bought my 1999 G20 5 speed as a new left over model in june of 2000. It now has 209000 miles on and still has the original rear brakes. The front brakes were replaced at 120000 and the starter was replaced at 140000 miles. I also had new belts put on at 180000. I have had the car serviced regularly every 5000 miles since I bought it, but have only had the above mentioned repairs. Of course I have had batteries and tires replaced as needed. I'm sorry Infiniti doesn't make these anymore
MY DRIVER SIDE FRONT DOOR WILL NOT UNLOCK,WHEN I PUT THE KEY INSIDE I HEAR A NOISE BUT IT LOCKS BACK BEFORE I CAN OPEN THE DOOR,WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM?
I bought this vehicle (1995 Infinity G20t) used in 2004. A great little car. Interior is near perfect still (all leather) and I have probably spent $1,500.00 including tires on this vehicle since I've owned it. I do most of my own maintenance which saves $'s. It now has over 142.000 miles on it but seems to be pretty strong runner for being almost 17 years old. Needs a front drivers side axle now but this will be around $100.00 by the time I buy an axle,seal,boot and new spindle nut. This vehicle has never left me stranded, and since I don't drive that many miles I believe I will keep it as long as I can pass smog. Love it and would get another.
Bought mine in very good condition with 136,000 miles in 2009. It had been owned by college daughter of an affluent lawyer, so it was well maintained. Paid $2800! It was great for first 10K miles...then the alternator went. Replaced it myself...not too difficult, just a little time consuming. Subsequently, radiator cracked. Replaced that myself too - very easy, got a good deal on eBay for a new one with lifetime guaranty.
Next was front wheel bearings...my mechanic did that repair with my parts. Then the new alternator went with only 10k miles on it. It was faulty. Had a lifetime warranty from Advance Auto so I got a new one - no charge, but had to put it back in myself, again. Easier second time - getting to be an expert at this. Now have 156,000 miles on it. Check Engine light just lit. Code reader says P0138. Looks like Rear O2 Sensor is going. Pretty cheap part. I'll do this myself too. Despite these problems, this is a really nice car. I use it for commuting only (56 miles RT per day) and it gets 25 - 31 mpg, depending on traffic speed. The items which have failed are beyond projected life-cycle for the most part, so I'm not complaining...plus I got it for below book with great service records showing responsible service. You can save a lot of money if you do the repairs yourself. Second best is to find a good, honest mechanic. Never go to an Infiniti dealer, unless you want to spend 200%-300% more than a private mechanic. Believe it or not, I would buy another one of these. They are comfortable, fun to drive and prestigious. The only improvement Infiniti could have made is offering either a manual transmission, or better yet, a stronger engine. These are a little under powered, particularly noticeable with the AC on...wish they had made a convertible...The only problem I currently have that I can't figure out is a rattle/thumping coming from down below my left foot on the driver's side? Got any ideas? I know it had new axles installed by the previous owner right before I bought it...maybe this is a strut problem???
Nevertheless, if you've got one...Enjoy it!
