G35 interior bland?? dont see it-- are we talking about the 2007??? I think for 07 they did a good job making it more userfriendly. Voice control of everything along with easy button control of every function (sorry IDRIVE) could not be better. I do think its a little narrow on the inside and the steering wheel not the best.. The clock is a infiniti gimick and a non factor for me. I would agree with you on the TSX great car but again for that kind of money its prob worth a look at the new accord or even branch out --Saab new 93, the subaru legacy sport both AWD with more power -- I would of loved to by another acura (for the service and reliablity) but lack of AWD and the overall package for the price has caught up with you/.

I hear ya. Never been a Saab fan as the exterior and interior both were lackluster for me. Subaru Legacy just seems to have an identity crisis. Kinda has TL lines with a back end that look old Toyota camry like. I like the Infinity line and I think by sales volume the G35 sedan and coupe are making BMW sweat a little. I prefer the interior of the Acura's and Mercedes. I had a 3 series and never really liked the interior of the BMW. I got 2.9% lease rate and about 4000 off list with the Navi and cost for the Aspec wheels. Very few black 06' TSX's with ebony finish wheels out there. I'm digging the car a lot and find it a joy to drive everyday. Albeit the look of the the new G37 and G35 from the outside is very appealing. They've improved the interior of the 07', but the center console and even the navigation placement with that pop up looking screen is unattractive to me. The horizontal spot with that large round dial is just not working for me. Maybe I would get use to it. Who knows, maybe my next car will be an infinity as they have some of the best overall packages to offer. Swap the interior of the Acura and i'm in.
#95 of 211 Popup console? I'm confused... [gdoctsx1]

Interesting opinon on the interior of the G35. I'm a big guy (tall-ish and overweight, ) and I fit well in the G35. It can feel a bit narrow but I blame that on the sheer size of the center console. It's bloody huge! I'm confused the most by your popup comment. I'm not sure I see what you're talking about... Now, saying it's not attractive, well, that I can understand. Having a big effectively blank, non-matching blob in the middle of the console is always going to be unattractive, imo.
For reference, here's a good photo of the 07 console:
The main thing I don't like about it is the Infiniti Controller. I never use it so it feels wasted to me. (Why use it when I can do everything with the on-wheel controls?!) I also agree on the clock being gimmicky but in a day and age when most teenagers can't seem to read an analog clock it amuses me to have one in the car...

If you don't like the infiniti controller you can still perform a lot of the functions without it. They don't limit you like the idrive. I'm very glad they didn't go for a pop up screen thing, i hate those. If anything, they look ugly!

Hi everyonel, I'm new to the townhall.
Currently own an '04 TSX / 36,000 miles with absolutely no major mechanical and/or structural issues....I can't believe how well it holds its resale value too!. However, I get the new car itch every few years and my TSX is on the way out. I understand TSX's and TL's will be redesigned in '09, but I'm not sure I want to wait until then...Hmmm, what to do? . I LOVE the G35 and with AWD (needed where I live) and package options its price is comparable to the TL not the TSX.
I agree with previous posts the better comparison of TSX might be (amongst others) the Lexus IS250 or the Audi A4 2.0.
I'll keep up my new car search ..... I think I have it narrowed down to around 12 different models right now...haha. Keep up the good posts!
#98 of 211 TSX good, but not great in snow

I like my TSX, but to me it handles bad in the snow at least compared to the G35x model and even other AWD cars because the TSX is only FWD.

I was in the same situation. My 05 TSX lease is up about 5months but itching to get out of the car. I switched to a G35xs about two weeks ago and loving it so far.
The infiniti dealer bought out the TSX lease so I'm not responsible for any more payment. I still haven't open up the throttle yet since the car only have 250miles but man I can't wait to drive it everyday. Love the safety of all-wheel drive (I'm from NJ) and the torque of the car. You won't regret it. Almost got into a TL-S but my last Acura and Honda just full of annoying rattles. I came from 4 honda cars before switching to Nissan.

All three were on my wife and I's short list. We often times compare vehicles that others would not consider in the same class.
I've owned several Hondas and have an 06' Civic as my commuter vehicle, we've owned other Nissans as well, all trouble free.
We opted for the G35XS, the monthly payment was about $100 per month higher than a TL and about $200+ over a TSX, all with identical lease terms 36months, 15,000 miles just inception fees, between $1000-1500.
They all are very capable vehicles. I doubt anyone here could offer incite as to which is better. In my instance we did not want to wait for the redesigned TL and TSX to see which had AWD, and compare, then go through the negotiating process when we had what amounted to an invoice deal on the G35XS.

I am a former owner of 2 nissans,bought new and had bad luck with both of them-engines had to be replaced due to defects. (under warranty). They were both quiet (no rattles) but then again so is my 06 tsx 6spd, bought new 11/17/06 with 35,000+miles. The last car that I owned that had awd was a 1998 eagle talon Tsi. It was a great car to drive when there was not too much traffic on route 80 thru the delaware water gap. Otherwise I was just as happy driving a car with FWD. (I am a former jerseyite-bergen, ocean, sussex and warren counties). The g35xs only comes with automatic (not for me). good luck and safe driving.
#102 of 211 tsx not even close

I own a TL and this should be compared to G not a TSX. A TSX is a girls car.At first i thought this post was a type error (he meant TL)
