Infiniti M35/M45 Maintenance and Repair



  • ghstudioghstudio Posts: 920
    If my car was under warranty and someone else is going to pay for the repairs, I would definately take it to the dealer for repairs. By doing that, Infiniti and your dealer can't claim that the accident was not fixed completely...or that something failed due to the accident. Alternatively, if your dealer farms out body work, find out what body shop they use and use that shop. They can't claim that you used a shop that didn't fix things correctly.

    Sorry to hear of your of luck
  • I get very hot air from my vents with the outside air vent on and AC off. I would like to know who else has this problem and how to get Infiniti to fix it.
    This happens on my 2007 M35.
    With the engine fully warmed up turn off the climate control system so the AC doesn’t go on. Push button “intake air control” for outside air. Set “mode” for floor vent only. Turn fan speed to medium or high. I tested this with the outside temperature at around 65-70 degrees. After a few minutes I tested the temperature of the air coming in from the floor vent, it’s 105 degrees and the floor next to the gas peddle is quite warm.

    I took the car to Infiniti Service at the dealership and they said they all are like that; it’s designed to take the air across the engine and into the car. If the engine is hot then you get the hot air. The only way to not get hot air is to turn on the AC.

    I had my 06 M35x into the Cincinnati Infiniti dealer on 11/9 to fix this problem.

    Here is what was done and it worked:

    Gear & linkage - 49001-EH11A
    Power steering fluid - 999MP-AG000P

    Thanks to mule714 for pointing me in the right direction.
  • Went to pick up our new black M35 and found numerous scratches and a couple of chips in the paint. They sent it to the body shop to try and buff out the scratches, but when we went back today a number of the scratches are still there. We refussed the car as we think it should be in better conditon. The dealership said black has this problem and we should choose another color. Any comments? Again this is a NEW car. Thanks.

    Yes, It's true that black will show absolutely everything. Also, I would not take the car if it was not perfect. If I were you, I would choose another color as you will be finding scratches and swirl marks on Black all the time.

    I had Infiniti change the y pipe, plus they found the metal shield in the drive tunnel behind that pipe was not loose but needed to be torqued. So far the problem is gone, and it's been a few weeks.

    I still have the problem with hard shifting from 2-3 when the car is cold, and when its about 20 outside it takes a long time to go away. The dealer says its normal, I am not sure it is....

    Thanks for the hint-it worked.
  • I have a black M35 (2007) and it absolutely flawless - not a single scratch or issue to be addressed. Is it harder to keep clean - you bet. Is it easier to show scratches - sure, just try a dirty cloth to wash and smile at all the scratches. Is it beautiful when clean and liquid shiny - nothing can match its beauty.

    Refuse the car, if the dealer doesn't replace it, then walk (no - - run ) to another dealer and see if they will match the offer.

    When I picked my car up new 04 G35 Coupe, the salesman had it in the showroom so that I could inspect every inch inside and out.
  • Now that's the way a dealership should act. The dealership sent the black one back to dealer where it came from and we are back to square one. Funny thing was they said we weren't cut out to have a black car! Gee, wanting a new car to look new no matter what color is reasonable in my opinion. I have a 2001 Lexus and it still looks new! Oh, but it's silver. Now we just have to hope they have canceled the loan.

    Make sure they don't charge you one nickel! Get the car you want in new new condition.
  • All,
    We recently got our '06 M35 back from the body shop after a collision damage repair. Now, when ever I start the car, I hear a beeping noise. This goes away after some time. Can someone help me with this?

    Is the seatbelt lamp on? Might not have reinstalled the connection.
  • James,
    Thanks for your input.

    The seat belt lamp is all right. However, there is another lamp which is on. It's like a crown symbol. Any idea what it might be or whether that is driviing this beeping noise?

    Just a guess, but could it be your tire pressure sensor?
  • Lane Departure Warning?
  • I have had to replace the steering rrack now twice in one year and my car only has 30,000k m on it.

    We become aware of the problem because of a front noise everytime we turn right!

    Is this a known problem? and what can cause something like this to happen so quickly?

    I have had ths problem for some time now. The dealer the first time I took it in said yes we know of the problem and there is no fix. After that he played dumb. I have had it in twice and the last time they replaced the power stearing pump. The noise slowed down but it was still there. Now it is back stronger and I have to take it back again. I think this may come into the lemon law area???

    I've been on these sites quite a bit, along with other forums, and have not seen any mention of this problem. I'd try the service manager again, then go to the East Coast region which is located in Franklin TN for assistance. I thought I had written down the address (should I need it), but just can't put my hands on it now..

    I am on many of the Infiniti forums and this absolutely the first time I have ever heard about steering rack problems with any of the models. Make sure the dealer makes good. Good luck.
