I have 43k on my car...and my sunroof motor already burnt out. I rarely side back the sunroof...but rather have it tilted in the vent position. All of a sudden it would not come back down. Cost me $525 to replace the motor.
I am not the only one. A friend of mine has already replaced TWO sunroof motors.
Anyone else had the same problem??? :lemon:
Shouldn't it be covered by the 4/60K Bumper to Bumper warranty though?
Telling you...the sunroof motor burnt out in my car...and a friend who has a "Q45" (went through TWO motors by the time he hit 90k)
Basically...the I30 and I30 are the same. Alright...you will have some additional features which aren't on mine. But mechanically same.
As for the moonroof motor. It has occurred on my I30. Friend had several konked out on his "Q". So basically I take it that the Infiniti motors are not all that well.
Hope you folks will not kick me off of the board since I am driving an I30...the sibling of the I35.
We should just combine the boards...
My dealer has told me they need to replace the whole dashboard unit at a cost of over $800!!! I'm pretty ticked off cause the car is under the warranty in Time but only over few thousand in miles over and I am a loyal Nissan owner (over 7 cars). They tried to get me under the Goodwill Program but I was denied. I have my car "maintained" at the dealership every 5,000 miles and get replaced whatever they tell me needs replacing at the time. I DON'T sign on for the "Scheduled MaintenceProgram" casue I see no need to spend over $300 for them to fill my washer fluid, check my cruise control, check my tire pressure, check the parking brake etc.
Can anyone help me with the diagnoisis and any chance of raising the issue further at Infiniti to get results?
Try taking it to a different dealer to see if they think it has a different problem.
Can some of the more "senior" I35 owners help out here?
If you don't have an owner's manual, an Infiniti dealer can order one for you or you can bid on eBay if there is one up for sale.
MPG (miles per gallon) works the same way, also averaging during stops, etc.
The clock is so you can time your trips, it shows the number of hours the car has been driven since it was reset. I set mine for road trips. :shades:
Distance to Empty is DTE and it will count down your miles to be driven until you have to push your way to a gas station. It actually stops at 25 miles and then just flashes at you no matter what you have the dash set to view. So if it is flashing, get gas. If the fuel "idiot light" comes on, lace up your sneakers. :sick:
recently the drivers power seat stopped moving backward and forward. the up and down controls still work.
i found on the internet that there is a technical service bulletin for this problem, that the power seat motor needs to be replaced. this is estimated to cost $700 +tax.
as the vehicle is out of warranty, i will have to pay.
my question is this: as this is a problem that they apparently know about that occurs in only 2 model years of f this vehicle, what are my chances of getting infiniti to pay for this repair.
Hope this helps!
1) Hesitation - when starting from stop, about 10 to 20% of the time, there is a hesitation - slightly - no patern that I can notice to it. Dealer cannot find anything wrong - and of course, it doesn't happen when they drive it. It is quite annoying to say the least
2) Oil Consumption - I need to add a quart of oil about every 2000 - 3000 miles. I only use 100% synthetic and it still happens. They couldn't find anything wrong.
My dealer is highly rated for service - very highly according to Infiniti. Has anyone else had these problems? Thanks
I would get the engine checked.
A modern car shouldn't be that oil thirsty.
How many miles were on the car when you bought it?
The number of miles on the car seem awefully low...
Any mechanics out there have a clue? COuld the oil consumption and hesitation be linked (like if there is a head gasket problem)? Don't know. For now, the dealer doesn't have a clue either. My next trip to the dealer, I will demand an answer - or at least start replacing parts!
Have you tried taking it to various Infiniti dealerships in your area? How about a local mechanic with experience working on Nissan's VQ35 engine?
What could it be? Any thoughts.....
Could be your transmission... Could be almost anything really.
I'm stumped on this one. CR gave the I35 an "outstanding" Reliability rating.
I have a 2002 I35.I have noticed recently a fairly large cloud of white exhaust smoke when I start the vehicle in the morning or after a 3-4 hour gap in driving. It does not smoke at all once it has been running 30 or so seconds.It is enough smoke that it fills the garage and makes it impossible to park it there. The dealer replaced the PCV valve and found nothing else (after keeping it for 10 days). They told me it is normal for an I 35 to do this. Any help would be appreciated.
Has the smoke reoccured since the dealership replaced the PCV valve?
I think its nothing too major, but I'm not certain and since it's still under warranty, I'd have it checked out. (and if it is serious, at least you can still get one of those G35 loaners)
by the way, the 3rd oil change on my car is being done today and I have a brand new loaner G35 in my driveway with 1700 miles.
Update on my 2004 Brilliant Silver/Willow I35:
Mileage: 12,200 ish as of today
Problems: 0. Nilch. Nada. Nothin'. However you want to say it.
Likes: Value. Space. Bose stereo.
Dislikes: not much. For the money, it was a wonderful buy.
Why don't you just wait for your next oil change just before 60,000 miles and have it checked out?
Problem solved. (albeit quite expensively, but at least you didn't have to pay a single penny)
Same problem. Same timing. Have you had any luck resolving this?
My mpg was 29 on the way out with cruise set no higher than 72, and it was 28 on the way back with cruise set at 75-78. Mpg was calculated using mile driven divided by gallons used. My trip computer stated I was getting 34 mpg, I wish!
