The G35 is a pleasant car but has some drawbacks. Its 3.5-liter V6 is strong, and the automatic is exceptionally smooth. Routine handling is fairly agile, but at its limits the tail slid out unexpectedly on our test car--even with the standard stability control. The ride is comfortable and quiet. The power seat controls are poorly marked and confusing to use, as are a few other controls. A coupe version with a six-speed manual is available. All-wheel drive on the sedan aids snow traction. For 2005, Infiniti revised the interior with better materials and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.
