Nissan Infiniti G35 Brake Problems – squealing, fast wear out due to defect

Front brakes on my Infiniti G35 2003 started to produce excessive squealing and it was the time to change brakes again. I dropped by to the dealership where they checked brakes and gave me estimation of $740 to replace front brake rotors and pads.

Infiniti Front Brake Rotors and Pads Dealership Job Estimate

The last time I changed front rotors and pads was 30000 km ago at Willowdale Nissan Infiniti dealership service center. Moreover, 12000 km ago same pads have been replaced and rotors machined. So, I can say that for me genuine Infiniti brake parts work for 20000 km or about one year. How? Why? One year for Nissan Infiniti brake rotors, and even less for brake pads?

I’m usually asking service advisors about the reason of fast wearing, probably something was not installed properly, or some parts were defective. The answer is always the same – because of the way I’m driving… Ok. This time I’ve decided to make some investigation and research before continuing to waste more than $1500/year on brakes for “the way I’m driving”.

I was very surprised with what I’ve found.

Infiniti G35 2003 has defective brake system.

It causes continuous squealing and very fast wear out.

Search engines provide many thousands results for the search query like “Nissan Infiniti brake problems”. And it applies not only for G35 or only for 2003 models. It applies to FX35, QX56, G35 Coupe, Maxima and to the models of 2003-2006 years. There are many lawsuits against Infiniti due to brakes problems, because replacing them due to known defect every year is too much for consumers. Moreover, it drops resale value significantly!

When I was buying the car at Willowdale Nissan Infiniti dealership, I’ve asked sales person if there are any known problems, or recalls for the vehicle. Dino Pop (his name) lied me that there is absolutely nothing wrong – no recalls, no problems, no issues.

I have NEVER heard from Willowdale Nissan Infiniti service advisors that there is a known problem with Infiniti brakes. However, I was asking them each time about the problems with brakes. And every time after brakes replacement at this Infiniti of Willowdale stealership, squealing noise appeared after several days of driving. I just used to it, however it is really annoying from time to time. And mechanics could not do anything about it, and they did not let me know about the well known problem, because changing defective brakes very often is an excellent cash cow for Nissan Infiniti dealerships.

And dealerships continue to install defective genuine Nissan Infiniti brake rotors and brake pads.

When I complain on squealing they always do nothing:

Infiniti Brake Squealing Report - No Actions

I just started to think that Willowdale Nissan Infiniti mechanics are not qualified enough to do the brake job.

Here is a solution!

Do not install defective OEM Nissan Infiniti brake parts anymore! They will die in a year.

Consider after-market brake rotors and pads. I personally did it this time. Brake rotors and pads with shims perfectly matched my Infiniti G35 2003. I replaced brake rotors and pads for the front wheels during Friday evening. It is not so hard as it may look like. I’ve ordered brakes from California. Everything (both left and right rotors, pads with shims) including one-week delivery and taxes cost me $220 CAD. It is a way less than $750 offered by the dealership. Brake parts are much better than genuine Infiniti ones. Rotors are ventilated and slotted.

And there is absolutely no any noise from the brakes! It is the first time for the several years of my ownership of Infiniti G35 when I’m not hearing any squealing or other noise from brakes.

If you decided to install rotors and pads by yourself, you may ask any questions regarding the process as well. I will create and post here illustrated instructions for the front brake rotors and pads replacement procedure for Infiniti G35 when I can find some more time.

Here is the Infiniti G35 Repair Manual to assist in brake rotors and pads replacement:

    Infiniti brakes are a scam!

  • Jeffrey

    Can you kindly tell me which model / brand is the after market brake rotor / pads? so next time I change it I will try to get the same ones (unfortunately I got them replaced about 7000km ago ): )

    Hi There,
    I too have a similar problem (2003 G35) as I’ve just had my rear rotors and brake pads replaced ($2400 later) at Willowdale Nissan/ Infiniti. The next day after pickup (dry conditions; not raining outside), whenever I came to a rolling stop, the brakes would squeal quite loudly. Since taking my car back to the dealership, they could not find any problems (in my opinion due to it raining outside and the brakes being wet).
    After driving from the dealership, the noise is still there but not nearly as loud (once again due to the brakes being wet).

  • Trueler

    Hi Jason,

    The reason of squealing is the Infiniti brake system itself, not the weather (it is raining these days in Thornhill and Toronto). Service advisors at Willowdale Nissan/Infiniti won’t admit that there is a known problem with Infiniti brakes for sure. They just want to continue grabbing money from customers for often brakes replacement. However they can advise you to consider after market brake rotors and pads instead of defective OEM Infiniti parts. It would be no noise.

    Did it really cost $2400 to replace rear rotors and pads??

    Willowdale Nissan/Infiniti is not the good place to go to fix your vehicle! There are plenty of complaints on service at this dealership. You may read about it here:

  • Bernie Torres

    I’m having the same problem as everyone posted. Please tell me the manufacturer and part# of the after market pads and rotors. I was told that there are two types or is that correct?

    Thanks

    Wow. I purchased a used 2003 Infiniti G35 in December 2006. I was replaing my brakes at least every 5-6 months, sometimes less. Thank you so much for this information. I had no idea the brake system was defective. Just two months ago, I had my brakes replaced and rotors resurfaced due to massive squealing..not squeaking. The squealing stopped, but just last week, the brakes are at it again.

    Thankfully, I never went to the dealer for repairs (too costly), but I was purchasing the Infiniti brakes. I will purchase aftermarket brakes from hereon.

  • Yvette

    Also, could you please provide me with the manufacturer and part# of the after market pads and rotors? Thank you again.

  • Trueler

    Hi Yvette,

    Thanks for sharing your experience!

    Can you send me what you put on your car? Infiniti has offered to put on stillen brakes on the front for $603.75 installed, but they are an after market brake so I am open to anything. My mechanic (not dealer) has told me he could put new ones on, but they aren’t stillen.
    Looking forward to hearing what you had installed on your car.
    Thanks Nicola :)

    Hi, I’m another owner of a 2003 G35 with brake problems. Infiniti of Costa Mesa, CA replaced my original brake pads and turned the rotors, both free under warranty at 27K. These pads lasted another 23K miles, when I went to my old mechanic and had good non-OEM pads put in. These lasted 40K miles. Had the rotors turned again and new pads at 90K, but now the car feels like the front rotors are out of round again.
    Please email me the brand names of the rotors and pads you like, and I’ll have my mechanic install them. BTW, the car has been trouble free otherwise, and my next sedan will be another G35, probably a used 2008. Thanks, Ed

  • Trueler

    Thanks Ed for sharing experience. I’ve sent you info.

  • George

    I have only had my 2003 G35 for 9 months. The dealership I bought the car from told me the pads and rotors were new. They are now squeeling at times. I may need new pads soon. Would you please send me the name and contact for these aftermarket brakes? I will most likely install them myself. Thank you in advance.

  • Dean

    Hi,

    I have a 2004 G35X on which I have been replacing the brakes every 10-12,000 miles. I’m pretty sure the brakes are the same between the 03 and 04. Can you send me the name of the brakes that you have been using?

    Thanks,
    Dean

  • Susan

    hi, i drive a 2005 g35 sedan, my brakes started making loud squealing noise and when braking i feel vibration so i took it to brake masters just recently and resurfaced front rotors and replaced the pads.. after waiting over 2 hrs, they’re finally done, i took off and felt a grinding noise when braking, and when i release my brakes it makes the same noise. i thought it would go away after driving for a few miles or so but it didn’t so i took my car back a week later and told them my problem, the manager came to me and said his guy drove it and didn’t find anything wrong with it, which i find it hard to believe. he said for me to drive the car for 500-1000k miles and it will go away, and i’ve never heard of that before. i’ve drove it over 500 miles and the grinding noise is still there. what do u think the problem is? before i took my car to brake masters, the grinding noise was not there. im so frustrated! idk what to do! pls help!

  • Tony Vallin

    This looks very familiar. I would love to know details on the parts that you used to replace. This will be the 4th set of brakes over 85900 miles

  • Trueler

    Hi Tony,

    I’ve sent details to you. ~86K miles is not too bad for 3 sets of brakes :) However if it is mostly highways (I believe for US that is true), less than 30K miles for one set of brakes is not good at all…

    Thanks!
    Trueler

  • Trueler

    Hi Susan,

    It looks like that “brake masters” you were dealing with are not really masters. They just grabbed money for rotors resurfacing and pads installation, and they are done. It doesn’t matter that you have noise. Asking to drive 500-1000k miles is a total gibberish. Usually good new brakes are pretty much adjusted during the first 100km. Mine stopped to produce any noise after ~30 minute drive (I’ve replaced them by myself).

    I can only advice to find good aftermarket brakes and ask friends for a good mechanic, so he can properly replace them.

    Please ask any further questions, if you need more advice.

    Best Regards,
    Trueler

  • Jacque

    I’ve had similar issues with my ’03 G35…was recently told I need to replace my front and rear brake pads and rotors. This will be the 3rd time in 65K miles. Can you send me the information as well?
    Thanks!

  • Harris

    It just sticks in my throat that Infiniti can produce a defective product and leave thousands of owners to live with the problem that the company created for the life of a product us consumers must suffer with. And the dealers are grabbing money to do brake jobs that add to the inflicted injury of us consumers. Is there no remedy other than fixing more breaks? Please send the info on alternatives to the Infiniti parts. Thanks for highlighting this issue, Trueler. P.S. the dealer wanted 2100 to do the job and when I yes it was too much, he dropped the price by 700. I still walked out. I don’t want there breaks at any price.

  • Trueler

    Thank you Harris for sharing experience. Last time I were at dealership they offered $735 for the front brakes (rotors + pads). After that I did my own research and spend less than $200 + one evening of interesting replacement job :)

  • Scott Lewis

    My girlfriend is looking at buying a used 2007 G35X.
    Does this car have the same problems?

  • Trueler

    Hi Scott,

    Good question :)

    Brake issues were resolved in 2006, and Infiniti brakes have been redesigned for the models of 2007 year and newer. So the car for your girlfriend does not have the same problems.

    Update by Trueler as of Nov 26, 2010:

    It looks like things are not as good. Infiniti claimed that brakes had been redesigned for 2007 and newer models. But after I posted this comment I paid attention to the cars around me when driving. And I noticed that many new Infiniti G (2007 year and newer) produce the same typical noise as 2003 models…

    Best Regards,
    Trueler

  • Charles

    Can you please tell me which model / brand of after market brake rotor / pads for the rear? My rear is making the squealing noise now and I haven’t done anything to it for like 56k miles now. Hoping it is not so hard to do myself. Thanks in advance..

  • Joseph Hanna

    Hi,

    Can you kindly email me the brand of rotors and pads that you used? I have a 2006 G35 and had to replace the front brakes every year after 35,000 kms.

    Thanks you.

  • fran

    Thank you

    for the front and the rear

  • Dan

    Sorry to hear about the early wear problems some have seen. My 03 G35 has 55K of mostly stop and go high speed CA driving and only now needs the brakes replaced.
    If my BMW 335 could do as well I would be a happy guy.
    By the way, I have found that my local Nissan dealer does the same work for much less. The only difference is the loaner is not a Infiniti.

  • Trueler

    Hi Dan,

    You are very lucky guy! 7 years and 55K (I guess miles) for a single OEM Infiniti brakes is probably a world record :)

    Thanks for info.

  • henry

    Hi Trueler ,

    Can you kindly tell me which model / brand is the after market brake rotor / pads? SO I can get them for my problematic 2003 G35 as well. Many thanks !

  • Andy

    I’m having the same trouble with my 2004 G35 sedan. I had the Infiniti dealer replace the front and rear rotors and pads one year ago when I bought the car. I’m not doing that again so soon…less than 11,000 miles. The brakes are so “touchy” I hate driving with anyone else in the car.

    Will you please send me the information on parts and replacement?

  • Doug

    Hi Trueler,
    Buying an ’03 G35 today, and anticipating the brakes wearing prematurely based upon all that I’m reading. Would like to get as much use as possible out of my brakes when these go, so please send to me your very useful, and appreciated information. Much obliged! Doug

  • Brent

    Hi Trueler,

    I’m from Sydney Australia and was searching around for information regarding brake squealing and found your info. Explains a lot!

    Much appreciated! Cheers!

    Hi I own an 05 g35 with 64,000 miles and had brakes and rotors replace and still keep getting this loud noise, the dealers state they don’t hear nothing or to drive for awhile it will eventually stop but it has not. can you please give me the information on the after market brakes and rotors such order number etc.

  • sindy

    Hi there,

    Could you email me the info on the pads n rotors.. I am in need of that bad!

  • Josh

    Hey Trueler

    I just purchased a 2006 Infiniti g35 coupe and honestly I love it to death. However I am experiencing 2 problems with it. The first one being the brakes squeel when im braking, so I just wanted to know which pads and rotors you suggest?? And second when I drive over cracked or bumpy roads, I often hear a squeeky sound coming from the front of the car but almost as if its right in front of me. I too service my car at Willowdale Nissan Infiniti and can’t say I trust them very much there too. Please get back to me asap.

    Hi Trueler,

    Could you give a ballpark estimate on how long the aftermarket brakes you use on your G35 have lasted or will last? Also, would that estimate be for pads and rotors or just pads? Thanks so much for your help!

    I too am wondering if you would kindly send me the info on the parts you use. Can these parts be used on the Coupe and Sedan both?

    Thanks so much,

    I have an 04 coupe. I am sick and tired of this brake problem. I feel as if I have been cheated! Could you please tell me what parts you used I’m due for new brakes. Thank you very much!

  • Brian

    I own a 2003 G35 M6 which I bought new in 2003. In late 2003 I recieved a letter from my dealer that told me that “due to the nature of the high performance brakes on my Infiniti that I might have to replace them somewhat more frequently” BUT that they would cover the replacement of such under warranty. When the warranty expired 3 years ago and I began assuming these costs I shopped around a little and found a great place to buy ceramic pads and drilled rotors ($185 dollars complete delivered to my door via UPS). What was more surprising for me is that this is a Canadian company (Toronto) so no extra costs/delays for shipping/handling/customs etc, etc. It takes me about an hour to install the front pads now which I pretty much do every 20,000km. The $400 I save each year helps supplement the speeding tickets I seem to accumulate driving this car.

  • Nancy

    Could you please forward info on the brake pads you purchased from California…brand, price, etc.

    I have a 2007 M35 and am having the same problem with early brake pad wearout.

  • Vincent Earl

    I have been having this problem for over a year and neither the Infinity dealership nor other mechanics find anything wrong.

  • Randy t

    I will say this. 2009 G37 coupe brakes are still the same issues. At least the noise and squealing. And dealer says it’s “normal”. So I’m looking at options…other than giving my wife my bimmer. So no, they hav not fixed it.

    For anyone considering a replacement, doing this yourself is not difficult. Properly bleed your brakes with the help of a second person and your all set. Mechanical portion of this is easy.

    Please share the brands you like for rotors and pads.

    Thanx

    I have a G35 2003 and have replaced the brakes three times since purchasing the car with 40.000 miles in 2007, the brakes are killing my wallet, I don’t know much about cars, but I do know and now see the brakes on the G35 have a serious problem. I have had the cam sensor replaced twice, and my radio has been replace and is now going out again the audio broad. what a shame for such an expensive car.Could you please supply me with the after market brakes with the item number or what ever I would need to purchases the correct brakes. my G35 is a sedan.

    if you could help me out it will be lovelly even if i hav to order it from the states

  • Dave

    I’m having the same brake problem with 2006 G35. Email me the after market brake info please. My brakes also seem to be hard when applied meaning they don’t have much cushion to them. When applying the brakes you have to actually let off on the brake because the slower you’re going the harder it brakes the car to a stop. Any answers to this.

  • Eddie

    Hey Trueler,

    just wondering how the aftermarket pads and rotors are holding up? Have you experienced any problems, rusting, squealing, wear, so far?

  • Trueler

    Hi Eddie,

    I have heard squealing with new pads and rotors only two times. When I was backing up and braking right after my car was standing overnight at pretty cold temperature. It was a bit of squealing only from rear (I replaced them just recently before I heard the noise).

    In general there is no squealing.

    No rusting, no other problems I can see with visual check so far (touching wood). I did not measure the wear.

    I replaced front brakes in August, and rear around October.

    Do you have any problems? Please share.

    Thanks,

    I have a 2008 G35 sedan with brake problems. Although I do not have the squealing problem everyone talks about, I get severe shuddering under heavy braking. The car has about 46K km but I’ve had the front pads and rotors replaced. I would appreciate the brand name of the after-market rotors and pads. Did you also suggest a replacement product for the calipers?

  • Alan Bernard

    thinking of buying a G35x, can you send me the aftermarket brake info? The brakes were noisy on the test drive, figured I would have them replace them before I bought it, but I think I will just negotiate the cost of a brake job off the price, and see if they will go for that. thanks for your help!

  • Willie

    thanks planning to buy in July

    Hi

    I have a 2003 G35 with Brembo brakes and they are squealing like crazy, I switched pads in Oct and two weeks ago and they’re still squealing. Can you let me know the best after market brand of breaks to use.

    Thanks for the info!

  • Chad

    Hi,

    Please send me the aftermarket rotor and pad info when you get a chance. Thanks!

  • G35 driver

    Hello, I have a 2007 G35 coupe and I have terrible brake squealing. I replaced the front rotors and pads with OEM parts and the squealing is back. Would you please tell me what you used to fix the problem?? thank you so much

  • Alan

    I have a 2004 G35 Sport Coupe with 24,000 miles and am getting ready to put on the third set of brakes and such. Please send me the after market information as well.

    Thanks.

  • Dan

    We are looking seriously at the 2006 G35 sedan and would like to know what after market rotors/pads you recommend – the brakes on today’s test drive seemed a little noisy and we’d like to negotiate on this matter with the dealer.

    Dan

  • Trueler

    Hi Everyone,

    I have ordered the following parts from R1 Concepts:

    - R1 Eline drill/slot rotors (part # EDS.42074)
    - Posi-Quiet Extended Wear Pads (part # 106.08150)

    These are for Infiniti G35 2003 Sedan.

    In August 2010 I’ve replace brake rotors and pads for front wheels, and in November 2010 for rear. So far, no complaints. Comparing to Infiniti OEM brake parts these behave much better, no squealing at all.

    If anyone is using brakes from them, please share your experience here.

    Thanks,
    Trueler

  • G35 driver

    Hi everyone,
    I just purchased the R1 eline cross drilled and slotted rotors and the hawk hps break pads. They will be here Thursday. After I install the parts, I will post my experience with them. I really hope it fixes the squeal. I had the squeal before I changed the rotors and pads. Not even 20 min. braking with the new parts the squeal was back. I properly “bedded” the new parts, so thats not the issue. OEM replacement parts will not fix the problem.(atleast that’s my experience). Anyway, I will let you all know how it goes in a few days. :)

  • G35 driver

    I have a 2007 G35 coupe. I forgot to mention that. To add to my other post, the hawk brake pads are ferro carbon, not semi-metallic like the OEM brake pads. The Infiniti dealer in Orlando, FL says the semi-metallic pads are one of the causes of the squeal.

  • Dave

    Can you tell which pads and rotors I will need to get rid of this most irritating squealing noise on my 2006 G35

    Thank you so much for your help, Dave

  • G35 driver

    Ok, the verdict is in. I installed my R1 concepts eline cross drilled and slotted rotors and Hawk HPS brake pads on my 07 G35 coupe. Properly installed and bedded. The terrible squealing is finally gone! I recommend these aftermarket parts because the OEM parts from the dealer will NOT fix the problem. I’ll update in a few days if the squealing returns. So far so good!

  • Keith

    Hey guys, I have had problems with Infiniti’s service for years. I am just about through over paying for garbage service. I have an 03 g35 sedan…any recommendations for pads and rotors so i can do it myself? Thanks!

  • Shonda

    Hello everyone. It’s so amazing. I have a 2008 Infiniti G35 and my brakes squeak as well. At first it wasn’t that bad, but lately it’s gotten worse. I took my G35 for maintenance to the Infiniti dealer and also told them to check my brakes because they were squeaking. After getting my vehicle serviced, they said my brakes were fine and it was just dust. So I asked him if it was just dust, couldn’t they clean them maybe or something for the squeaky noise to stop and the guy said all I needed to do was get a hose and clean them really good. So needless to say, yes I still have squeaky noise when I press on my brakes. Any suggestions? Please help.

  • Trueler

    Hi Shonda,

    Conider any after-market brake rotors and pads for your vehicle. Original Infiniti brakes are defective. It causes fast wear out and squeaking. I’ve resolved brake problems by changing OEM brakes to another manufacturer’s.

    Regards,
    Trueler

  • Shonda

    Thank you.

  • Austin

    I have a 04 G35 and have replaced the brakes so many times. Can you send me the info on the brake pads and rotors you used on your car. Thanks.

  • Darlene

    I have an 03 G35 and I’ve had nothing but problems with both the car and the dealership. My brakes are a problem as well. They installed after market pads and when I had noise and vibration they told me it was because I didn’t have original Infinit parts!

    So they got original Infiniti brake pads and now I have terribe squealing and grinding at every stop. I’m out of town and terrified to drive the highways in case something serious is wrong. I’ve spent thousands of dollars on repairs for this car at the dealership and have since found out that some if it was not necessary.

  • Don

    I purchased a used 2003 G35 from the dealership 4 months ago;cerified and safetied by the dealer.

    The rear passenger brake starting scrapeing as if it seized.

    Now the dealer tells I need all brakes and rotors replaced to the tune of 1600 dollars.This sucks and I will not pay the dealership but I am going to pay a private mechanic.Please provide the aftermarket parts info for the brakes.

  • Trueler

    Hi Don,

    Please find the info in the my previous comment.

    Thanks,

  • Mike

    G35X 2004 Bought new in early 2004 or late 2003. Wife’s car. Replaced all pads at about 50K miles with third party parts. Did the work myself. Checked today with 90K miles, front pads are half worn. Rotors are original. Our problem is shimmying or violent shaking when braking at higher speeds. I suspect front rotors need replacing, does this sound correct ?

  • Trueler

    Hi Mike,

    It’s difficult to say if the problem you have is definitely caused by rotors from you description. I’ll tell more. Even mechanics won’t say you with 100%. What is definitely known is that Infiniti OEM rotors and pads are defective which causes premature wearing and squealing during lifetime. So if you consider rotors replacing soon, it’s better try after market parts.

    Thanks,
    Trueler

  • Mike

    Thanks Trueler, I bought a pair of rotors today (BDR 31350) and will install sometime later this month along with new pads. Wife loves the car other than this braking problem which has recently come up. She says the problem is intermittant as well, so not every time she brakes at higher speeds. Also there is no bias towards either side so it isn’t one wheel causing it. I’m perplexed. I think I recall this problem occuring back when I changed out the pads a couple years ago as well. It disappeared then too but now its back.

  • Mike

    Trueler,

    Found this just poking around:

    “To note on brake judder and how it occurs. Brake judder is almost never a result of a failed brake component. Brake judder is a result of a warped brake rotor. Brake rotors do not come from the factory warped 99.99999% of the time. Warpage occurs due to excessive heat that is created during braking. This typically occurs in heavy frequent brake applications usually when driving in the mountains,driving with 2 feet, driving in heavy stop and go traffic with high surge speeds. Now the warping is not entirely the fault of the driver but is in part as good driving habits should be used, i.e. when driving down a mountian don’t race to the next turn and hammer the brakes instead coast alot of the time, use gears in advance to decelerate to the turn so only a light brake application is used. I dont think much needs to be said about the 2 foot driver its obviously a very bad habit to have. Driving in heavy stop and go traffic give your self room, try to assess what the whole group in front of is doing not just the guy in front of you. Leave room and allow traffic to pull away on acceleration to allow for abrupt stopping of traffic so you can ease to a stop.

    “Now the part not of the drivers fault. When rotating the wheels or having other wheel work done, If the wheels are not properly torqued when reinstalled this can cause uneven pressure pushing the rotor against the hub and distort the rotor a bit. Not enough to feel immediatly but after a few warm stops your rotors will try to conform to that distortion eventually transmitting to the outter area of the rotor causing it to warp.”

    Brake judder sounds like the problem my wife’s car has. We do a lot of mountain driving. We cross the Sierra multiple times a month, every month in both cars. A lot of curves, two lane windy road stuff. We moved to Nevada in 2008, and still drive back to California quite a bit. So replacing the rotors ought to fix it.

    Regards, Mike

  • Dave Searle

    I am wanting to purchase a G35 but don’t know what year the brake problem ended…..If it did? If there are aftermarket rotors and pads that will obviate the problem then I can look for a good 2005-2006. I understand that at some point they increased the size of the rotors but I don’t know what year? Is a 2007 safe? Any advice appreciated.
    Dave

  • Trueler

    Hey Dave,

    I would look for a good car and if the problem with the brakes persist, I would replace them with aftermarket ones when time comes. I was sure at some point that it was 2007 when problem fixed, but then I’ve heard complaints on 07 vehicles and younger.

    Regards,
    Trueler

  • Dave Searle

    Thank you very much Trueler. Know what my plan is now. keep up the good work.

  • 2ndHand2005G35X

    Hi Trueler,

    I bought a 2005 G35X second hand last year and it immediately needed new front brakes. It’s been a year and I am being told it needs new front and rear brakes (the fronts are worn more than the rears which haven’t been changed)…this wear is abnormal.

    Could you provide the details of the aftermarket parts you used? I think I need to try something different. Annual replacement at these rates are out of my budget.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Traci

    Wow,so glad I found this. I have a 2004 infiniti G35 sedan. I replace my pad constantly. I only have 100k on it. The rear has began making a roaring sound, almost like I have a set of mud tires on my car! I have replaced the brake pads, new tires, balancing, rotating, front end alignments, and even new rack and pinions. Nothing seems to stop the problem. Could someone please suggest to me a name of aftermarker rotors and pads? The noise is really getting annoying, but I’ve just gotten use to it. It just sucks having a luxury vehichle that sounds like a 4 wheel drive when stopping. The squealing never goes away! Please help!

  • Lord Vader

    Willowdale Infiniti doesn’t even install the In-cabin air filter properly. I recently switched to a owner-manager mechanic after years of servicing my 05 G35 coupe with Willowdale. When my mechanic took out the old in-cabin filter, it was all squished up. Since it was not installed correctly, air was able to partly bypass the filter. They obviously took a short-cut and forced it in from underneath the glove-box as oppose to doing a proper job by removing it first. Who knows what other short-cuts they take. I will never go back to them again and would recommend anyone currently going there to switch.

  • Mark

    I have a 2004 Infiniti G35X. Could you please provide me with the manufacturer and part# of the after market pads and rotors?

  • Mike

    My friend has a 05 g35, and recently contacted about having to replace her right rear caliper(left was replaced 2yrs ago) both seized up. The right cost twice as much as the left. Was wondering if anyone else was experiencing similar issue, or if the faulty rotors and pads may be leading to this. Thanks.

  • Perry

    I had a new 2005 Infiniti G35x. Brought it in for 12 month, 18,000 km checkup and was told I needed $1400 in new brakes and rotors. I complained but was told that that wear is “normal for a high performance car”.

    In the US, owners successfully filed a class action suit. But Nissan/Infiniti Canada offered nothing. Now, 5 years later, they offer just $275 for owners that had new brakes installed.

    Sorry Nissan, that’s TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE!

    Here is a copy of he letter.

    Dear Infiniti G35X Owner:
     
    Infiniti is committed to providing the highest levels of product quality and customer satisfaction.  One of the many superior features of the award winning G35X is its excellent braking performance.  This performance is due in part to advances in materials technology inherent in the brake pads on model year 2005 G35X sedans.  However, that superior performance can result in these customers sometimes experiencing greater brake rotor wear than they may have experienced with other vehicles they previously owned or leased.  
    What Infiniti Will Do
     
    To ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction, for a limited time, Infiniti is offering to reimburse owners for out-of-pocket expenses related to brake rotor replacement for 3 years from the original in-service date or 60,000 kilometers on your odometer, whichever occurred first (the “Program Period”).  
     
    This brake rotor reimbursement program covers brake rotor replacement performed when required because of rotor wear during the Program Period. The reimbursement will only be eligible for the cost of the brake rotors, and will not cover other parts costs, or labour expenses, to a maximum of $275.00.
     
    What You Should Do
     
    If you have previously had your brake rotors replaced during maintenance to your vehicle prior to your receipt of this letter or during the Program Period, you may be eligible for reimbursement of those expenses.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact your dealership or the Infiniti Information Centre at 1-800-361-4792.  
     
    Please note all claims must be submitted within 90 days of receiving this letter.
     
    Thank you for your purchase or lease of an Infiniti vehicle.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

    I replaced the stock rotors on my 04 G35 Coupe about 12K miles ago with (Stupid me) OEM rotors. I now have horrible squealing and vibration when the brakes are applied. I knew I needed something different so after reading this page I decided to order the R1 Eline drill/slotted rotors as well as the Posi Quiet ceramic brake pads. Ordered them today. Will share comments after I install them.

    Sad to hear of the lousy Infiniti service you have received. I live in Redondo Beach, CA and have had great service from the local Infiniti dealer.

  • Trueler

    Thanks Danny! Hope to hear your comments after installation and use.

    Trueler

  • Danny A.

    WOW… I am amazed at the transformation the brake/rotor swap made. The parts came in. I am always concerned about non-OEM parts not fitting exactly right. Not an issue. Everything fit OEM perfect.

    After the install (10 PM at night) I had to properly bed the brakes. Finding roads in Redondo Beach to do the break-in was interesting. The literature that comes with the brakes said that there may be some squealing for up to 500 miles. Not even a tiny squeak.

    My wife usually drives this car. As we were coming to the first stop sign she asked if the old brakes were that bad or are these parts that good? My response? “Yes”.

    Thanks for the advice. We could not be happier.

  • Joe T.

    Hey Trueler I’m glad to had found your posting right after I typed this issue on google search…I just purchased a 2005 Infiniti G35 and already I am hearing squeaking sounds! A mechanic told me that they don’t need to be replaced yet so I couldn’t understand how come the brakes were squeaking! So with that said I would really appreciate if you can email me the information on which aftermarket brake pads and rotors are good to use for my front and rear brakes so my next change can be successful! Thank you I will really appreciate it. Also, thumbs up to you! I see how many people you have helped.

  • johnny

    I have the same problem, please give me the details

  • Janet C

    My 2003 G35 is in the shop today getting new front brake pads and rotors, and rear pads. Third time in 69,000 miles. The brakes have squealed since I got the car, as you said, you get used to it but it’s so irritating. Other than that I love this car. Please send info on your preferred after-market brakes, thanks so much.

    Hi Bill and Everybody who requested information about brake parts,

    I have ordered the following parts from R1 Concepts:

    - R1 Eline drill/slot rotors (part # EDS.42074)
    - Posi-Quiet Extended Wear Pads (part # 106.08150)

    These are for Infiniti G35 2003 Sedan.

    In August 2010 I’ve replaced brake rotors and pads for front wheels, and in November 2010 for rear. So far, no complaints. Comparing to Infiniti OEM brake parts these behave much better, no squealing at all.

    If anyone is using brakes from them, please share your experience here.

    Thanks,
    Trueler

    Dear Trueller,

    I have the same brake squealing issue with my 2010 G37x. Are brake parts you listed applicable to my model as well. Dealer is putting new brake pads on under warranty, but I have no faith in them. they have “looked” at them 3 times now. this time they gave me same song and dance that this is normal for G37′s.

  • Mary

    Could i get a link to brakes/rotars and such for the 2005 G35 plz and ty!!

  • Amy

    I bought a used 2008 G35X about 18 months ago. I have had the front brakes serviced 3 times since I got it – once just a month after I bought the car. This is definitely not worth the headache. I am going to trade this in as fast as I can.

    Hello!!

    What pre market brakes are the ones recommended?
    I appreciate direction. Infiniti said it can be cheaper.
    I would like to know best brand to use.

    Thank you for your help

    Hi came upon this discussion and just wanted to add that you guys can order complete front and rear rotors and pads for around $200 on Ebay. I replaced both front and rear for my Nissan X-trail which has the same brakes as some Infinity models from 2006. The original Nissan ones were made of some environmentally friendly vegetable matter and the rotors were a very soft steel to accommodate them. Noble effort but they were useless when it came to longevity, with the rotors being easily pitted and grooved and the pads becoming noisy. Any good metallic or ceramic brake pads and harder steel rotors will make a big difference. Any mechanic should be able to change them.

    Not sure I really understand what is happening here, I read all of these issues with the brakes and am kind of lost. I purchased my 2003 G35 Coupe with Bremo brakes and it had about 14k on it. 6-7 months into it I noticed that the brakes were going away a bit so shopped around and put Wagner pads on it from Advance front and rear. Think I spent less than $100, and I drive like a lunatic but I didn’t put brakes on it again for over 70+k and the pads I pulled probably could have done another 8-10k easy. This time I decided to replace the rotors and pads as the car was up just under 100k in miles. I bought the stuff online for about $300-$325, these are drilled and slotted rotors, ceramic pads. No issues but with a new car in the stable I am not driving the G35 as much so I only have about 15k on this package right now. I am happy with it but I wouldn’t mind more stopping power as I keep increasing the engine power.

  • Luis

    I am going through the same ordeal. Would you kindly tell me which model/ brand is the after market brake rotor/ pads you purchased?

    Thanks

    I’m having the same issue with my Infiniti G37 Sedan 2012; bought it brand new; and i’ve only had it for 1 year and 4 months; I was happy to finally be able to buy a brand new car with no car problems. Then last month, i noticed that it start squealing when I brake. Took it in to Infiniti and they said they couldn’t reproduce the noise after testing it for 4 miles and that visually, my brake pads for the front and rear are still over 10mm. I took it home and it still squeals when I brake. Wish i knew this before i bought the car; should have done my homework. I figured Infiniti was known for great vehicles. I guess not anymore.

    Please let me know what model/brand is the after market brake roter/pads you purchased.
