This is my first dabble into the luxury car market, as well as with Infiniti, and I have to admit that I'm very impressed with my G35S sport sedan. While not quite on par with some of the Mercedes or BMW's that my friends own, when you look at the level or performance and luxury you get, for the relatively low price you pay, it's a no brainer.
The responsiveness of the G35 engine is amazing! Power, power, power! And it handles like it's on rails. Absolutely NO play in the steering (which took some getting used to), and no body lean what-so-ever when taking a curve at a spirited pace. On the down side, that great handling suspension when attacking the road aggressively can prove to be a bit on the stiff side when just crusing around town. Nothing too over the top, but small bumps are definitely noticed.
The interior is very comfortable, and fit & finish is excellent. Again, not quite the Mercedes or BMW luxury touches, but extremely well crafted. The front seats are more sport than luxury, but they are fully adjustable to include lumbar adjustments, and can be tailored to fit each person's preference. I'm 6'2" and have no problems fitting in the car, but anyone much taller than that might have head room issues. There also is a bit of road noise in the interior, and I'd like the cabin to be a bit quieter, but it's definitely not a deal breaker.
Like most other G35 owners, my biggest complaint is the fuel consumption. If this car got about 5-7 more MPG it would be awesome. All in all, I am very satisfied with my G35S Sedan and would (and have) recommend it to my friends.

What an awesome car...upgraded from a Hyundai Sonata (which, ironically, I also loved...for the price, that is.) This car beats all competitors (BMW, Mercedes, Lexus) in all criteria. Getting about 22 mpg in mixed driving and that is about the only drawback. This is a great entry level sports/luxury vehicle. Powerful V6 - this car is a rocketship on wheels. Haven't driven it in the snow yet and that is the only thing that could change my opinion. I'll be buying another in a few years.
I've been a expensive German sports car owner for a long time. This is my first Japanese car. To my surprise the G35-Sport version, which includes all the bells & whistles, has performed in all categories beyond expectations. The car is mostly used for going to the gym and to golf courses along with golf vacations. It provides the two of us with plenty room for luggage and easily accommodates two golf bags. Surprisingly I have taken a liking to the navigation system, stereo system, but especially the computer flash disk, hard drive and integrated satellite radio. I must not overlook how the G35-S handles. In ways it feels similar to my German sports cars, just not as fast top end; still its very nimble while providing solid feel of the road. It handles really nice; agile like and there's plenty of acceleration from 300+hp. Using the paddle shifters makes it feel real sporty. I have never purchased a car for mileage, so compared to what I've been use to it's nice. For the price it's an all around outstanding automobile. My wife now wants the G37, and who knows, I just might buy a new one in the near future.
