Thats exactly what I think too with bmw the first 50k is glorious until you past the 90k mark. Things start to get expensive and maintenance cost just goes through the roof once you past warranty with these german vehicles. Although Infiniti in the past had their slight issues with their first generation G series, they were gradually fixing the issues upon release of the new one. We all saw the improvements.I'd say reliable. I have seen people have small issues here and there with electrical parts but nothing the warranty doesn't cover. Parts also aren't that expensive.
I've driven the G37 back to back with the 3 series and A4 and I think I prefer the Infiniti.
The BMW and Audi have their pros but the cost of ownership past 100+k is what scares me off.
American car makers are stepping up, I know Dodge/Chrysler is doing much better than they were before, but that's probably because Fiat (Italian company) is now part of Dodge and controlling a lot of what they do.Infiniti has one of the better reputations among luxury brands. I would actually rank Lexus first, followed by Infiniti, then probably Mercedes in terms of reliability.
BMW and Audi have terrible reputations when the miles start to tag on. But Infiniti doesn't have that problem.
Generally, I think Japanese cars have better reliability than anything European. I don't really bother with American lol.
Where Infinitis made in Japan at one point? Which ones are still? I've noticed that some of the newer Infiniti vehicles that are made in USA have had a bunch of recalls.
Wow an 04 with 100k?2004 G35 Coupe, 5AT,100,000 miles. The car has been very reliable,aside from the usual maintenace, have replace brake pads, accessory belts. Just put Michelin Pilot super sports on the rear , now all 4 have the same tire.
Radiator was replace last year.
Great car Fast quick and still get compliments
I have a 2004 that I bought in 2006 with 19k on the dial and it's a hair over 118k now. That's what, a little less than 7 years for 100k. Nearly 15k per year, mostly in town and one or two 1600 mile round trips each year. I'd say 100k is a little low but some leases are 12k yearly. Average yearly ends up being somewhere between 12 and 15k depending on where you live I think.Wow an 04 with 100k?
You don't drive much!
