The new Acura TL looks just like the Honda Accord.I invite anyone with a newer model TL (2005 - 2009) or TSX to come to Temecula and go head to head with my G35 tiptronic sedan. 0-60 in faster than your Acura. More quality and better leather in all. Anyone who wants a real vehicle, go to your Infiniti dealer. If you buy a used '06, your ahead of the Acura '09. If you buy a new Infiniti, you're even that much more ahead.

When you arrive in town, just go to the A&W and ask for "Big Daddy." He's never been defeated in the 4-door V-6 slushbox class.

Well, Mr. two-posts, you've certainly got an interesting way of getting acquainted on a board.
These days, many people care about fuel mileage, as well as performance. BMW, Honda/Acura, Audi & others appear to be able to address that concern.
Infiniti, not so much.
I have a Pathfinder in the garage downstairs as I write this. It's got the same engine your car has, one very well suited to a truck. I've been driving Nissan engines since '73 & very much enjoy them, but this "my dad can whip your dad" stuff doesn't move the conversation forward in a very productive way, IMNHO.

I am glad you are as happy with your automatic g35 as I am with my 06 6MT tsx, bought new 11/17/06. It has almost 66,000 problem free miles.

This is the thing that bothers me about car enthuasiasts! The statement above by cdnpinhead. He compares a Nissan engine to a G35. Same enigne? Yeah. Same specs? I don't think so! Does anyone else in this message board find anything funny about that? Hey buddy, I'm sure your Nissan engine is tuned the same as the G35! I'm sure it has the same tranny! It's probably even got the same HP Tiptronic tranny. Your Pathfinder probably even weighs the same as my G35. Bring your Pathfinder and I will finish the 1/4 before you're even half way there. Besides I thought you guys were talkin about Infiniti/Acura, not Infiniti/Slow SUV weren't you?

Hey, hey, hey. We are comparing the TSX to the G35 here and if you have respectful input to this conversation, you are welcome to participate. We're not into declarative dismissals of others' opinions as worthless. Others are entitled to their opinions just as much as you are entitled to yours. Chest-beating confrontation isn't helpful.
Why don't you tell us what you like about your G35 and then we'll go from there.

If my 06 tsx were to beat your g35 (the g35 will win) I would return it for a refund. I did not buy my car to race. I was more interested in gas mileage, comfort, and reliability. The tsx is all that for less money. I average 30,000+ miles a year. Why would I want to buy a used gs when I can buy a new acura.

That is just the beauty of the G35, mine is an 08. It offers reliability, interior room, lots of tech, its really fast, very comfortable, the list goes on. I would not compare the pricing of the G with the TSX though cos it would not make any sense, the G has everything the TSX has to offer, and then some. Contrast the G with the 335i & IS350. Its way cheaper than those cars. Also, comparing fuel consumption of a 3.5l V6 with a 2l 4 banger would not make sense either.

I can say the same thing about my 06 6MT tsx/wnav. (except for the really fast part but it can get you a speeding ticket). I am very pleased with my car after two years of ownership (bought new 11/17/06). It now has almost 66,000 problem free miles. I must say I would consider getting an infiniti way before a BMW or Lexus. Plan on keeping my tsx at least one more year (should be at 100,000 miles by then)
