What is this discussion about?
Infiniti M35, Infiniti M45, Sedan
#1194 of 1368 2009 M35 Downshift not smooth
Feb 19, 2010 (5:22 am)
Infiniti released a reflash for the Transmission Control Module (TCM) to resolve this issue.
The applicable vehicles are as follows for ITB09-032
2009 FX 35 (S51) 2WD
2009 FX 35/50 (S51) AWD
2009 G37 Sport Sedan (V36) 2WD and AWD
2009 G37 Sport Coupe (CV36) 2WD and AWD
2009 M35 (Y50) 2WD ONLY
The flash made a very noticable improvement throughout the shift range, not just the 3 to 4. That being said, the 7 speed is very different than the 4 or 5 speed in most older vehicles and does take some getting used to.

#1196 of 1368 Goodyear tires

We are picking up a new M35x in a couple of days and read about the problems people were having with the Goodyear tire. How severe an issue is it and will the dealer replace them with another tire, if you ask? (What model would anyone suggest)

The tire issue makes the drive exciting and demands that you drive with two hands on the wheel unless on an interstate.I now have my winter tires on for the first time and I can not believe the improvement.I changed these with 12,000 miles on my car .I don't know if the dealer will do anything for you,but it is worth a try.At first it is not so bad but at 10,000 miles it was very pronounced.I plan to buy new tires this spring unless there is a safety recall,which Infinity should do!

Don't pick up the Infiniti. I you have to, do not accept it with the RS-A tires. Different tires help but do not cure.
The NHSA site has complaints about Infiniti steering gong back to 2006.
When my lease was over I changed to an Audi A4. Much better car.
#1199 of 1368 Goodyear replacements?
Feb 23, 2010 (3:31 pm)
I am picking up my 2010 M35 in the next couple of days. With all the posts about tramling, I am paying to have the Goddyears replaced.(The dealer says he contacted Infiniti and they didn't know anything about a problem and wouldn't do anything.) I live in NYC which would give a better ride the Michelin Pilot Sport or the Continental Extreme Contact, as these seem to be the most mentioned as replacement tires.

Your dealer must be a psychopathic lair. Some way to start a long term relationship.
Search this Federal database http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/complaints/
Kill the deal or mourn later.

Tell dealer you want out or you will call Chuck Schumer. He would love the grandstand. Run don't walk to another car. Worst case settle for a G or FX. At least they drive straight.
Take the M for a spin on the Bronx River Parkway and see for your self.
Had one for three years. Wife and daughter would not drive it. Thought I was losing my driving skills.
Demo and M35 and an Audi A4 back to back and write us.

I wish I knew this before I bought the M.The dealer told me that it was not an issue and that the car is a lux. Performance car.Very quick handling.

Print out the steering complaints from 2006 and next years and meet with the dealer. Tell him you want to bust up the deal our you will call Consumers Union, Schumer, Cuomo, Arnold Diaz, Ralph Nader, Fox News and Al Sharpton.
You should not accept delivery.
I hear free Michelins are a common give away.
Which dealer did you buy from?
