The Infiniti G35 is a pleasant car with some notable drawbacks. Its powertrain is strong, refined, and very quick. We also like the G35's comfortable ride and nicely finished interior. Handling is agile, but when pressed to its limits, we found the car can get tricky -- even with stability control. We also found some controls unintuitive and frustrating to use.
