Thanks. I've been getting a great response from G35 owners lately.

Latest counts:

2007: 462006: 332005: 292004: 392003: 55

Total: 212

In the results posted this week, only the 2003 is included, and with an asterisk and only visible to logged-in members because of an insufficient number of responses. The stat was 0.5 repair trips per year, which is good but not great for a 2003. First-year of the car, of course.

I didn't have enough responses for the 2007 sedan to include it even in the asterisked results. That said, none of the 17 sedan owners reported a repair, so clearly the 2007 isn't trouble-prone.

The next set of results will be in August. Then I expect to have official results for the 2003 and 2007, and maybe for a few other years. It all depends on how many people sign up and participate.

The hard part with the 2007 is I have to analyze the sedan and coupe separately. It might also be necessary to do the same with other years depending on whether the reported problems are bodystyle-specific. So I might need two good samples per year. In general, most of the above cars are sedans.

If you've been helping out, thanks. If you haven't been, please consider doing so.

Caveytaz22:

Have some patience.My 06 G35 Sedan used 1 qt per 1000 miles when new. It wasn't until i reached 21k miles that my oil consumption dropped to 2000 miles per quartI believe it is now a little better with over 2000 miles per quart.I change my own oil using a factory filter every 3k to 3500 miles using Penzoil or Quaker State or whatever is on sale. I think as your vehicle ages you will experience a similar result? I now have 36850 miles. Not only has the oil consumption improved as the vehicle aged so did Gas consumption.

My last oil change was on July 21st 2007 at 34514 miles. I checked my oil this morning with 36850 miles and added exactly 1/2 quart to bring the oil level to the full mark on the dip stick. This gave me 2336 miles on 1/2 qt of oil. Considering this vehicle used 1 qt per 1000 miles when new, not bad. Be aware the the L level on the dipstick is two quarts low.

Infinity I30 1999. S.O.S

Postby Ohums » Thu Oct 11, 2007 7:09 pm

I have an infiniti I30 1999. The car stalls when I accelerate and the radiator fan stays on constantly. When I took this to be diagnosed, I was told that the ECM is in a lame mode and no reading could be gotten out of it . I had the ECM rebuilt but to no avail. Pls help with any suggestion as to why my ECM is not interfacing

Past issues aren't reportable on the main survey. That one collects data going forward.

You can report past repairs on a second survey, the Vehicle Repair History survey. Unlike the main survey, which is only accessible through links in emails I send out, you can get to the second survey by going to the site.

As noted in the updated OP, three model years already have over 100 owners signed up, and the 2003 is now at 98.
