    ikay, this is the deal,

    15,5k miles on a 2006 g35x. had some minor body work done and breaks checked for wear and excess dust. i'm told that my rear breaks are worn down by about 75%.

    i drive normally, no harsh conditions. what the hell is going on that the breaks are gone?

    Since the X is auto it's unlikely you drove with the E-brake on (Did you?)
    Sounds wanting to make a buck maybe? Fronts were fine though?
  • Hi folks
    I just bought a 2006 Infiniti G35X (rebuild) from the U.S.
    I'm in Canada.
    Beatuiful car, what I'm wondering if there is anyway to cahnge the mileage and outside temp. from english to metric.

    thanks for any help or responses.
  • Want to buy a 2008 Infiniti G35. I know that premium gas is recommended, but is it required? What actually does the G35 owners manual say. The salesman said that I can use either type of gas without me asking him.

    I have a Nissan Maxima which also recommends Premium, but the manual also says that regular 87 octane can be used. I have used regular exclusively in the Maxima without any effect on the engine (never a ping has been heard).

    Contrary to what you might will not damage the engine by using lower octane fuel - Engine management will retard the timing and make the A/F mixure richer to cool the chamber. You will lose performance and fuel economy as a result of that. If those are not significant for you?? You will find many many many discussions on this board and others about this subject, so lets not start another redundant one here..
  • Thanks. Sorry about the post, but I just wanted to know what the Infiniti owners manual actually said about the gasoline octane without going back to the dealer.

    I believe it's "required" unless you don't care about the performance.

    Ive used regular quite often and see NO reduction is gas mileage or performance.

    This odd thing just started. When I insert the ignition key and engage electrical (windows, radio), the lights begin flashing whether I engage the engine or remove the key from the ignition. As I'm driving the car the flashing will last about 30 seconds and then stop, but after a minute or 2 it will begin again for about 30 seconds. This may happen about 2 or 3 times and then stops. While this is going on, I can engage the hazard lights and they also it is not the hazard light switch. Has anyone every encountered this or is my G haunted?
  • Hi Folks,

    Love my 08 G35x - can't wait to tear up the Quebec snow bountiful winters ( approx 25 ft last year). Quick question, has anyone found a solution for a roof mounted ski rack ? I was hoping to use my Thule roof rack system (formerly on Altima) but I can't seem to hook the rack by the door mounts. Does anyone have a solution ? Thule does not seem to have one just yet and I can't believe that the folks in Japan forgot abot this. Little slide hole from trunk to back seat will not cut it for 4 pairs of skis or pair of snowboards. DEsperately seeking an answer as skiing season is now upon us !!! Many thanks.
  • I have a 2008 G35x.
    Does anyone out there know if there is an firmware update for the built-in navigation system?
    Also does anyone know if I can program the remote to start the car without having to take it back to the dealer?
  • hi there,

    sorry i didn't reply sooner. i didn't notice your post.

    dealer replaced the brakes at no charge. i ptiched a royal B&*%$. I didn't drive with the E brake on...I've had nothing but minor and stupid problems with this car since I bought it in 06. I kinda wish I bought a lexus, bmw or audi...At least the customer service would have been better and the interior material quality woud stand up.
  • All the manuals are available in PDF form on the Infiniti websites. It is under Settings/Other/Language and Units. This link should do the trick for both Canadian and US.

    I test drove a 2008 loaner (they had $5000 discount) and found the brake was a little bit "shaky". The whole car shaked a little bit too. I didn't do any hard brake. Is it normal?
  • esfoadesfoad Posts: 210
    It's not normal. There should be no shake at all when applying the brakes. Sounds like warped rotors. Make sure they repair it before you take delivery.
  • I am a complete novice and want to know if a car lighter adaptor is the only possible port i can use to connect and charge my GPS (garmin c550)?
    Where can i find this sort of information about my car..? Since i dont find relevant information in manuals i recvd with the car, i assume its more basic than Infiniti decides is worth printing..:(.
    Appreciate your patience and response.

    There is an auxiliary lighter socket in the armrest of the G35X (at least in my 05). That's where I plug in my TomTom. The other alternative would be to hotwire it to an available fuse or, alternately, to hotwire a lighter accessory socket and hide that behind the dash.
  • The 2008 G35 has major brake failure issues. Both design flaws and premature brake pad failure.
