#253 of 599 Safety Issues and Concerns. Please helpl
Dec 27, 2005 (11:47 am)
I have a leased 2003 I35 with 24k miles spun after another vehicle nudged me on a highway and rear right tire broke off from the axle with all the nuts and bolts intact. Threads are worn out on the axle. right front tire is damaged. Airbags did not deploy. At the moment insurance is inspecting on it and I am really concerned about the safety of this vehicle and I am not sure if I want to take my family in this car again after this incident. Trying to talk to insurance and infiniti get their input. Any pointers or guidance are welcome. Will this be a totalled or can this be fixed. Should I take this up with infiniti to get replaced.

Same problem. Same timing. Have you had any luck resolving this?

Update on my engine knock problem. I went on my annual holiday trek, total of 1500 miles and no engine knock. I think I had some bad gas - so I'll be more picky about where I buy gas now.
My mpg was 29 on the way out with cruise set no higher than 72, and it was 28 on the way back with cruise set at 75-78. Mpg was calculated using mile driven divided by gallons used. My trip computer stated I was getting 34 mpg, I wish!

I'd take it down to the dealership to get it checked out.
You didn't get an owner's manual? I'd go ahead and get one- it helps you learn more about your new I35.
I think dealers can order a manual right?
Congratulations on your new (but used) I35! Could you give the rest of us some more information on your car such as:
Options (apparently you have the Sport Package since you have VDC)
Where you bought it

I am having an identical problem. I was told the part is $300 and labor would be $150 to correct. I bought the car new. The seat motor was replaced under warranty during the first year of ownership. Now with 75,000 miles, since it is my work car, of course there is no warranty and I guess I am SOL. My wife is 4' 11" and I am 6' 1" and the seat doesn't move. I guess my wife won't be able to drive the car until I get it fixed!

Posting this here because the other Forum seems dead. I just bought an 03 I35, Gold/tan, Spoiler, heated frt/rr seats. 20k miles. Still under factory warrnaty until Sept 07. I paid 17.5 which seemed good to me for what I got. Was this a fair deal?..luv the heated steering wheel.. What do you think?

Yea these boards are deathly silent.
Probably because the I35 is so reliable and probably because you can't get a brand new one anymore

After washing my 2002 I35 last week at a touchless car wash, I pulled out and noticed these lights came on. I called the dealer since my car is still under warranty, and was told they don't know why this happened. Make an appointment for 2 weeks and HOPEFULLY they can find out what happened. This exact thing happened in 11/05. After taking it to them they said can't find error in OBC. HUH?
I asked them if I could take it to the nearest Nissan dealer to get the codes so they could see it and I was told no I have to take it to an Infiniti dealer and the soonest they could look at it would be 2 weeks. What a joke. I took it anyway to Nissan and planned on paying myself for the computer hookup but being a DECENT car dealer they did it for free. The code C1105 was there.
RR wheel sensor. The lights have since gone out. We have an appointment with ANOTHER dealer to hopefully get it fixed. As a test we took the car back this morning to the car wash and guess what happened? The lights are on again.
Is this a trait of the Infiniti? Possibly too sensitive to wet ground? Anyone else have this happen when you wash your Infiniti?

I've taken my Infiniti to the touchless car wash once, and I'm sure the local dealer has done it for me once when I took it in for service on slow days (Mondays) and no problems.
