hi guys-i'm a newbeeee here. i have a 05 G35 sedan (sport package). I have 147000 miles on it right now and was purchased brand new my be. I live in hot (dry) Phoenix. I'm knocking on wood here as I type.
I have completed:
- 2 transmisson and rear diff flushes.
-1 collant flush and power sterring flush
- 1 (under warrante) control arm bushings
- replaced compession rob bushings
- both front struts (driver was leaking)
- alignment
- change oil every 5000 miles with mobil 1 syn
- i've had my original rotors flipped and then replaced with new OEM rotors and pads. the 2nd set of rotors were flipped @ 120000 miles and now need new ones again.
- driver seat little plastic gear to move my seat back and forth broke 2 times (1 under warrante) and 1 ou of warrante --i respearched a forum to order the gear and installed it myself and put it on
- sterring wheel audio controls do NOT work
- motor mounts
- BOTH cat's are BAD--before I ran out of my 100,000 extended warrante i took my car into Infiniti because I had a rattle noise u could hear while engine running and the dealer said BOTH my cats are bad. he said my honeycomb inside has broken apart and they want 2100 for 2 new ones/installed. But until my check engine light comes on or I do NOT pass emissions I will not fix.

Soon (month) I plan on completing:
change plugs
coolant flush

Last time @ dealer (121,000 miles) they mentioned I have issues with:
rear diff. bushing is bad (no idea what this is and If I can do it myself)
a/c compressor front seal leaking (like I said I live in PHX and have NOT noticed and cooling issues)
power sterring rack leaking
front lower control arm busing not broken but has a lot of play--IS this why when I go over a bump, my car sounds like a clunk
oil pan seeping

As I'm writing this I realize I've actullay had quite abit of stuff go wrong, but all is minor.

I love my car and expect to keep it till I can't keep up with or don't want to deal with repairs.

i know this is kind of off topic but still on topic in a way. i used to have a 98 altima that had close to 200k miles on it and i moded it with:
jwt cams, short ram intake, greddy sp1 full exhaust, header, unorthadox under drive pully, auto to manual swap, b&m short shifter, ACTII performance clutch, tokiko struts, eibach coils. i wanted to do all of this at one time and had the cash to buy a pulled engine that had 60k miles on it. the shop that i took my car to said that my almost 200k engine looked 3 times better on the inside than the 60k engine. i guess the moral of the story is that nissan/infiniti engine will take care of you as long as you take care of it the only thing that i really did was keep up with the maintenance on a regular basis and i never really had any issues other than normal wear and tear items being changed. i dogged the hell out of my car and she just kept running so hopefully as long as the maintenance is performed on a regular basis the little beast will still keep trucking

Can't find a post on it though

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I've got an '07 that just turned 150k. All I've needed to do (which is why I'm here) is replace my upper radiator hose (leaks at end, probably crappy OEM clamp)

Im now pushing 167000 miles and have NO major issues. But my brakes seem to grind and feel like they almost slip after long driving. BUT my pads and rotors are fine except for the pads are warped a little. When I lift my car onto jacks (front) and spin BOTH from wheels I can hear a grind and squeak

2005 G35 123K miles

never had any probs.....MIL just came on.....and oh yes I had to get a new gas cap.

just read I should have all the fluids checked...who and where to take it for this MIL?

Does it have to be some major garage?

I got 118,000 miles on mine ! Purchased it 2.5 years ago with 60k on it. Change those fluids and keep driving her, no problems. I am curious about that timing chain and will look into that though.

I'm certain my G will last until about 300k. At about 165k, car still pulls hard. I've kept her nearly stock this entire time and just now starting to mod. Should keep me and the G going for a long while...

This is a forum, not a suspense novel. So give it up! LOL

spark plugs
fluids (diff, tranny, ps, oil with m1 or better)
brake fluid if you drive hard
brake rotors and pads
air filter-K&N drop in
Seafoam the car
injector cleaner
I wouldn't worry about the timing chain just yet, I've seen a lot of high mileage G's and FX's no issue there
clean the throttle body
133k on my G though its a 1st gen
110k on the FX

You'll be fine it just takes some time to get them right again after some neglected miles but you hit everything. Just listen for noises and look for unusual behavior from now on...
