    Yes, I do/did. This is an acknowledged problem by Infiniti, its one of their service bulletins. Take it in and they will fix for free. The reason I say do/did is that I have taken it for this problem and they worked on it once, but did not fix it. I just took it in last week for them to fix again. I have yet to do over 70mph because I take surface streets to work. This weekend I will see if they fixed it. I will let them try one more time if I hear this weekend, before I tell them to replace the whole driver's side back door.

    You guys must be hearing something a whole lot more serious than what I hear.
    I have no wind noise that comes at a level to complain about and certainly nothing to justify the replacement of a rear door! :surprise:

    Hey Scottm123, don't get me wrong. The noise can only be heard when I have the stereo off or on low volume. It's more annoying then anything. It's a hissing noise, but you can tell it's a leak. Infiniti totally acknowledges the problem as per the service update. I just don't like the fact that I have this nice car and it's got such a annoying thing like this. My whole reason for a replacement door is that they acknowledge the problem, I think its fair that I am willing to give them 3 tries to fix (should be fixed the first time), it would just be easier for them to order a door and stick on then me coming back every month to them saying it's still there replacing the rubber stripping and doing all the work again. I feel bad bringing it in every month. Other than that love the car!!!!

    Thanks for all the help. Yeah its definitely this hissing sound. The weird thing to me is that it wasnt happening when I first go the car. Then one day i'm driving on the highway I hear it and its still there. Is that service bulletin on their website? Other than that this car is freakin awesome.

    I have had my G35X for almost three months and 3300 miles. No problem so far. I absolutely love it. However there are a few things I think Infiniti could have done or made standard.

    First, The car does not have auto locks. Ifigure this day and age with the thought of car jackings this would be a standard feature. As I drive off I have to remember to pres the lock button to secure the kids in the the back seat.

    Second, Heated mirrors would have been a plus. The dew thelast few mornings has made backing out of my driveway a small problem.

    Third, Backup sensors. I no they have a the package with the tv monitor on the trunck, but at this day and age this should be standard on all cars and suv's. I reallymiss that feaure on my Expedition.

    Fourth, The ability to scroll down on the music. You can only see six songs. If you touch the down on the screen or use the wheel it changes the song. Not thought out well.

    Just some thoughts on this car. I really enjoy the ride and the sounds system kick some rearend.

    One thing that bugs me about the power windows is that if have the disable switch for the rear windows on, then not only are the rear windows disbabled, but I cannot lower them either using the buttons by the driver side. What the hell was infiniti thinking?

    Normally, the rear window disable switch is overridden by the drivers controls, as it is on every other car I've driven. This way one can limit the access by kids but yet still have control.

    Good News!
    If you have a G35x, your outside mirrors are heated.

    From the manual:
    Defrosting outside mirrors (if so
    equipped)

    The outside mirrors will be heated when
    the rear window defroster switch is operated.


    Shame on your salesperson for not showing you that. :P

    I have my 07 G35x for just a little over 3 weeks when I came out of the salon one night I couldn't get into my own car. I ended up pulling out the mechanical key out and opening the door, but it still wouldn't start the car. It just kept telling me that there is no key, but I had my key fob the entire time. Apparently, THERE IS NO MANUAL WAY TO TURN THIS VEHICLE ON. If the key fob doesn't work, and even if you try to put it into the key fob slot, if it doesn't recognize your key fob...there is now way of turning this vehicle on. Before I found out that there is NO MANAUL WAY TO TURN ON THIS VEHICLE, I panic, I was stranded in a parking lot @ 10 o clock @ night, and was thinking there has got to be a way to turn this thing on manually, so I took out the mechanical key and try to find somewhere to put it in. NOPE! I eventually got so scared that I stuck it into the key fob slot and gotten it stuck. I eventually had to call emergency roadside and wait for a tow truck to come tow the vehicle back to the dealership. But before he towed the vehicle away, he attempted to get the mechanical key out of the key fob slot with his screw driver and scratched up my dashboard. The dealership has yet to tell me exactly what the reasoning is behind me not being able to enter into MY OWN VEHICLE, MUCH LESS START IT. Now they want me to pay $700 to replace that damaged part! I've been without a vehicle now for 5 days, and they didn't even had the courtesy to provide me with a loaner.

    I am sorry to hear this frustrating problem with not so "Intelligent Key"!
    I have a 05 G35 sedan with intelligent key, but it seems to
    be different system than yours. So far, I haven't had problems with it, just had to replace battery on one fob.

    I believe this is a serious problem and Infiniti is already
    working on replacing those keys for 07 G35 owners.
    Considering that you only had this car for 3 weeks, Infiniti
    and dealership should pay for all or most part of this repair. And also should give you a loaner at no charge.
    I would go back and be very deligent and speak with G.M. or
    Service manager and demand to take care of this problem.
    Remember, cry baby gets fed, so you have to do what you have
    to do in this situation. If they are not very helpful, call
    Infiniti and also tell the dealership you will go to a local
    T.V. station to report your disatisfaction. Most likely that
    will get the attention, especially if they are a large dealership.

    good luck

    Here's an article about this problem from Reuters:

    "DETROIT (Reuters) - Nissan North America (7201.T: Quote, Profile, Research has a warning for customers: placing your electronic key too close to your cellphone could leave you stranded.

    The automaker is asking customers driving new models of two of its flagship sedans to keep their car keys and cellphones at least an inch apart to avoid disabling the "intelligent keys."

    Cellphones kept near Nissan's I-Keys -- wireless devices designed to allow drivers to enter and start their cars at the push of a button -- can erase the electronic code on the keys, rendering them unable to unlock or start the cars.

    The problem has occurred on the 2007 Nissan Altima and Infiniti G35 sedans -- two of their top-selling models, the company said on Thursday.

    "We discovered that if the I-Key touches a cellphone, outgoing or incoming calls have the potential to alter the electronic code inside the I-Key," Nissan spokesman Kyle Bazemore said.

    "The car won't start and the I-Key cannot be reprogrammed," he added.

    The problem has occurred in a "very small percentage" of cars sold, Bazemore said. He also said a new version of the I-Key would be available in the fall.

    Bazemore said current owners have been notified of the potential glitch via mail and can get new keys from dealers if they encounter the problem."

    Okay. We've had this car for about 3-weeks. My wife and I drive to meet the family at a restaurant. I have the key and am the driver. I get out of the car, shut the driver door, and press the lock button. My brother meets me about 10 feet from the car, and we talk about something. I am waiting for my wife to join me. I see she is still in the car. So I go back and open the door and ask what is going on. She says I locked her in the car!

    She swears she tried to open the door and couldn't. Then she tried using the door unlock button on the driver's side, to no avail.

    Was this just 'user' error of some sort? Or is this how this car works?

    They should/must give you a loaner.

    But before he towed the vehicle away, he attempted to get the mechanical key out of the key fob slot with his screw driver and scratched up my dashboard.

    Why did you put the mechanical key into the slot? You need to put the whole remote in there.

    If you damaged other part of the car, I think you should pay for that (to be fair). However, you can always ask them to do it for free or some discount.
  • sounds kinda funny, but it sounds like operator error. There really shouldn't be any reason that she couldn't just manually unlock the door as a worst case scenario.
  • I purchased my 2007 Infiniti G35x in November 2006 and as of today, it has about 13,300 miles on it. Until today, I've had no major complaints or repair issues.

    However, this morning, I start my car and start driving when the ABS, VDC, and SLIP warning lights come on. (This has happened about 3 times before but I would restart the car and the lights would turn off). So I hit the START/STOP button to turn off the car and the car would NOT turn off.

    Luckily, I was at the end of my block and I backed the car up to my house. I kept pressing the START/STOP button and finally the engine shut off but the button stayed in "ON" mode. When I tried to restart the car, it wouldn't start.

    I had the car towed to my local Infiniti dealership. I explained to them what happened and they said that this is the first case regarding this issue. After several attempts, the technician was able to start the car, but then about seven warning lights came on and have remained on. (My instrument cluster looks like a CHRISTMAS TREE with all the warning lights on).

    The dealership is unable to determine the problem and gave me a loaner car. Who knows when I will get it back, but I hope they fix it and fix it correctly. I will let you all know what happens.

    So all you 07 G35x drivers, BEWARE!!!!

    Please keep us informed. Good luck.
  • sounds like it's something to do with the ECM. It's the main computer that controls the vehicle. I had a similar problem with mine, however mine happened while driving and basically I lost all power control. The engine was just idleing and it wouldn't do anything when I hit the gas. Fortunately I had enough momentum to get me thru an intersection so that I could restart the car. After the restart all of the warning lights went off except for the check engine light. Unfortunately for me this happened back in January when the car was very new and it took a couple of weeks for the part to arrive. This was of course after they tried a couple of other unsuccessful fixes. All in all, I was out of my vehicle for almost a month but the consumer affairs dept was very pleasant to deal with and re-imbursed me a full month of my lease payments and a full month of my insurance...and I had a loaner to drive for the entire time. Hopefully, the parts will be more readily avail now...if that is indeed the same problem that you have. I guess it also didn't help that at the time I had probably one of the only Sport models with EVERY option on it in all of California, and each ECM is different depending on the options you have (i.e. you can't take one from a Journey w/ Nav and put it into a Sport w/ Nav and 4WAS). Good luck!
  • Hello, i was hoping someone could answer this question for myself and others. I have noticed that the "un-lock" portion of the button on the 2007 g35 is NOT illuminated but the "lock" portion of the same button is. Is this a defect or does infiniti not illuminate the un-lock portion of the button on the g35? Thank you in advance for the answer/s
  • Has anyone experienced the problems of lost voicetags? I got into my car yesterday and all the phonebook voicetags were missing. It struck me as strange since the voicetags for the navigation were still there -- "Destination Home" worked but "Phonebook Home" didn't. Anyone know the cause/solution to this problem? Thanks!

    Known issue that the dealer is aware of, and there is a fix for it.
    I don't know the TSB off hand, but it's known.

    I'll update if/when I find details
  • Bought my G35x 5 days ago, and noticed the dreaded "Service Engine Soon" on the panel lit up. Brought the car to the dealership, they are looking at it right now. Strange... I did not try to push past 3,000 rpms... first time something like this happened on a new car for me. So naturally I am worried, brought the car to the dealership this morning - and it turns out someone did not screw the gas cap tightly enough, which caused the light to go on. So take note - if your SES light goes on :confuse: , check the gas cap first :D
