I'm considering switching my RX to an Infiniti G35 Sedan or Lexus IS 350. Everytime I drive my RX it seems I'm driving my retirement vehicle which I'm not ready for. What should I look for in making this change of view?.
I'm was looking at either a new 07 G35x or a used 06 IS350 myself ..... took a G35x out, pretty sweet I must say, even in snow
took out the IS350 a few days later and liked it as well.
The G35x was a little harsher ride than my former ride, an 01 IS300 and the newer IS350 but I think thats a good thing. Ride quality is such a subjective thing it will be hard for anyone to convince you for sure one way or the other. Zero to sixty for both these cars is about even.
I went with the IS350
. got a better deal, and liked the dealer better .

Picked up a G35 yesterday Silver Journey with Nav and Premium package thru internet sales great experience will never do a walk up again. The IS is a sweet ride and I feel the G35 is a equal in performance after driving both the price of the G35 at Invoice price was my deciding factor, very happy.

Hi - welcome. Hope we can help. The post here jescoto, "Infiniti G35 Electrical Problems" #3, 25 Nov 2007 9:19 am is the best place to look for help on this problem so let's continue there.
Let me suggest that you not post in all caps. That makes your posts difficult to read and it looks like you are shouting at us.

0 - 60 of Lexus and G35 are about the same. That's probably why they are compared to one another. The IS250 would be more in line with the Camry and Accord.

Haven't had any issues concerning the "joke" power of my IS250. In fact, I don't have trouble keeping up with 99% of the vehicles on the road. I'll take the vast improvement on gas mileage on my 250 over the increased power of the 350 or other less-efficient, but otherwise comparable, cars any day.
To boot, while I don't have a child, I often transport my 4-year-old niece, who uses a rather large Eddie Bauer car seat. Once again, no issue there in terms of tightness.
I also play a ton of sports and I'm frequently traveling with four adults. So far, there haven't been any complaints about the comfort of the back seat--and they're certainly not referring to it as ridiculous.
Don't get me wrong, the G35 is a great ride, but there really aren't very many significant drawbacks to the gorgeous IS, let alone those in the manner in which you describe.
#67 of 126 Tough call

IS350 & G35 is a tough comparison for me, as a former driver of the IS250, I know the 350 has a lot of luxury, perfomance, reliability & bells and whistles to offer. It has the common criticisms of the IS series to deal with as well.
On the other hand, the G does offer more room and comes at a discount to the IS350.
I think only the buyer can determine the winner here. I chose the G, but the IS350 could have been my chosen car as well. Cos I have a child and I wanted to spend less as well as need an AWD, I chose the G.
To those with the IS350, congrats, thats a great car and comes at a discount to the 335i with almost similar perfomace:)

It's hard to go wrong with either of these vehicles, in all honesty. I really love the fit and finish of my IS, but if the extra utilitarian features are of concern, the G is a great choice.
I really think what it boils down to for many buyers is aesthetics.
Congrats on your G!!!
#69 of 126 Discounts

The Lexus looks like a great car. However, I went with the G because of the great lease deals currently available. Also discounts available is you are buying. My take is the Lexus is nice but if you can't or won't spend the extra you can get roughly as nice of a car with the G. The G is great, but then again I'm moving up from a Saturn Aura XR so just about any car in this class would probably have impressed me.
