Has anybody ever heard that a bad catalytic converter can either cause or contribute to engine failure? (1 answer)

My engine builder has had two new engines fail, one with 580miles, the other with 1860miles, and is warrantying the second engine but is telling me that my cats are bad and led to this second engine failure. I told them that I suspected that the first engine's bolts were overtorqued (cam seal...

Frequent and intermittent stalling with check engine, slip and VDC off light appearing.

I have 2 things wrong but it may be caused by the same problem. 1) when I am at speeds over 55 and curve to the left my car jerks back hard to the right. 2) I have a loud, strange noise coming from my rear axel. It sounds like it is in the middle. (1 answer)

When the jerking began I though it was the wind gusting against my car pushing it to the right but it is a constant issue now. I have to maintain a strong grip on the wheel to keep the car under control and reduce speed.
The noise is difficult to describe. My son said it sounds like an animal ...

Passenger Airbag May Not Deploy as Designed

The wiring connecting the belt tension sensor and the occupant detection sensor control unit under the passenger front seat can move, causing wear and oxidization of the wire connector terminals. These terminal issues can result in interruption of the electrical signal. In the event of a crash, the passenger airbag may not deploy, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will perform the necessary repairs to correct this issue. This recall is expected to begin on July 12, 2010.

Passenger Air Bag May Not Deploy

This recall affects certain vehicles equipped Occupant Classification System (OCS) control units manufactured by Continental Automotive Systems. A varistor in the OCS control unit may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could interupt the signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit (ACU), causing the passenger air bag to be suppressed in an accident. If the air bag does not deploy when needed in a crash, the risk of injury is increased. Dealers will test the signal between the OCS and ACU with a special tool to verify proper function. The seat cushion containing the OCS hardware will be replaced as necessary. The recall began November 4, 2008.

Headlights May Not be Up to Standards, Causing Poor Illumination

Certain vehicles may contain headlights that do not meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Specifically # 108 "Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.  This may increase the risk of accidents both during the day and at night. Dealer will replace headlight assemblies. The Infiniti recall # is N/A - Service bulletin  # is  06V394000

Infiniti G35 Reviews

This is a driver's car. Move over BMW. Infini has released a car as performant at the famed 3 Series at $10,000 less or more if you compare to the M3. This car has great power & handling and is flat out fun to drive. My only criticism of the car is the voice control & bluetooth connectivity. It's ok but could use some improvement. The all wheel drive is nothing short of amazing and truly enh...
I have owned my G35 for 7 years and it is the most amazing car that I have ever owned. I have over 133k miles on it and it drives great. I have changed the struts once and the brakes several times. I would like to purchase a new car but I don't have any complaints about this one.
God do I hate this car! What a waste of money. I hate driving it, I hate owning it, I hate paying for it. If I wasnt looking so short term, I would have bought a BMW 3 series with it free maintenance that makes up for its higher price tag. Its spent sooo many days at the dealer for repairs except every time its the same run around where nothing gets fixed. I guarantee you all the problems I hav...
