Hi, I noticed that you referenced working at a dealership so I am hoping that you can help me with my question. I own a 2007 Infiniti G35 sedan and 4 days ago I turned it on and it started revving itself. It was in park revving as well as when my foot was on the break. Once I put it in drive and took my foot off the break the car would accelerate as much as 40mph almost completely skipping 1st gear. Is it out of warranty and has been at a local shop since that day and they are having trouble finding out what is wrong with it. I also checked all recalls on this car and I do not see anything. Any idea what the issue could be?

#475 of 505 G35 Coup Not Worth the Money
Jan 15, 2011 (3:06 pm)
I bought my 2006 G35 sedan from a dealer in California when it had 11,000 miles and was 1 year old. I was assured the 4 year warrantee was valid throughout North America.
Within a year the paint began to delaminate, not from the front, but from the sides and rear of the car. The (Calgary) Infiniti dealer's response: see if the car had been in an accident and repainted. If not, the paint chips are due to road hazard.
I checked with the original dealer, who assured me the car had not been in an accident. I also checked with CarFAX, with the same result. I took the car to several local paint shops and the concensus was that the paint is not bonding properly to the primer. I asked for a review by my car insurance company. Their response: the paint is not bonding properly with the primer.
I asked for a review by Infiniti of North America and was told I could drive the car to Spokane so that an Infiniti rep could inspect it. I drove the car 400 miles to Spokane and presented the rep with the paint shop and insurance assessments. Their response was that the peeling paint on the sides and rear of the car are due to "environmental road damage" and Infiniti is not responsible. When it was pointed out that the paint on the front and hood is not peeling, and the windshield is not pitted, yet paint is flaking off the sides and rear of the car, the Infiniti rep's comment: "this is not a warrantee issue."
The seat belt retracter guide does not work well. It has a slit that allows the belt to come out of the guide and flop around where it is difficult to grab while in the seat. This is a bad design.
The radio is not set to work at low temperatures (-10 C and below): the static is so bad that you can't hear anything. Perhaps something in the wiring needs to be fixed or insulated.
Overall impression: this luxury sports car is not worth the money, and Infiniti/Nissan North America both miss-represent their warrantee and do not provide the service one would expect of a luxury car.

I have a G35x and have had the same problem a few times, but only when it rains for a couple days. I believe it is related to water getting in the controller system. They replaced the controller system once, and that seemed to do the trick, but the problem recurs 1-2x / year and they do not seem to know what to do.
Does anyone have a suggestion?

I too have recently had the same problem. I own a 2004 g35 that's had airbag light problems. I went in for the recall back in November of 2010. Now every time it rains they airbag warning light comes on in my car. Mind you I have had NO problems prior to this. Infiniti has now diagnosed the car as needing an entire passenger airbag and module at $875 to replace. I'm not happy about the fact that this car had no problems before this recall was completed, now I'm looking at $875 to replace an airbag and module that should NOT be faulty. The airbag has never been deployed and Infiniti cannot give me a reason as to WHY this has happened. On top of that, the part is on a backorder and may not be here for at least 1-2 weeks. If the part is on backorder, then Infiniti should realize this is a problem with this car and should have included this with the recall. I'm very frustrated!

Wow, it's been over a year since my first post on this forum.
Since my last post I have added a Borla cat-back exhaust system. Crazy expensive, but the music from them and along with the JWT intake is amazing. Guys on hyperbikes even take notice when I drop down a couple of gears and romp on it. Acceleration is much better as well. The power comes on much more linear throughout the RPM range. I also added 4 new rotors and semi-metallic pads. I went with Brake Performance's Premium Slotted and Cross Dimple Drilled rotors. Makes hard braking a sheer joy on the twisty roads up in the Santa Cruz Mountains here in Cali. Lastly, I went with the newer Bridgestone Serenity Turanza's. I went up to the 235/50/17 size and am finding that they are wearing very evenly and slowly thank god. The grip is great in wet or dry and if and when they break loose, the car is very predictable. At around $1,200 for 4 installed and with all the road hazard warranty stuff, they are not cheap but in the long run I suspect good bang for the buck if I can get more than 40k out of them. Still hate the quality of the some of the interior trim.. On my second shift knob and it's starting to dimple and the finish looks like it wants to start peeling. One spoke of my steering wheel is almost void of that wonder rubbery coating and is revealing a shiny gray base.. Hey, maybe I should just strip all of the rubber off, it will blend in with my Liquid Platinum exterior better.
Still love the baby in general though! Just turned 41k on it!
Peace, good health, and happiness to all, thanks for listening.

I hope you get many more years of enjoyment out of your G35. I owned a 2003 model, and it was totaled at 108,000 miles in December - never a single mechanical issue with it. I would have kept it for a long time had it not been totaled because I put nothing but regular maintenance $ into it. Hope you have the same experience!

HiHoSilver. Sounds like you had a nice G. We still have our 07 G35X. The wife wants to get rid of it. Has right at 13,000 miles right now. If intersted, send me a message.

Wow I thought this was just me. I think they painted this car with water colors. I have never owned a car that scratches so easy. I know I am reading this several years later, but I wanted to know if you got any resolution to this issue, and if so, how do I resolve my issue?

Hi, well I agree with your comment on painted w/ water colors!! I first went to a dealer near me and showed them my hood, they said its environmental and would do nothing. I then took it to the dealer where I purchased it and after really complaining about this they did admit there was a problem w/ some paint. The service mgr. got the hood repainted for me and its been better since then. I will not buy another Infinity though because of their cheap paint, never have had another car do this and I have owned Mercedes, BMW, Tahoes, Ford, etc....
