1992 Infiniti G20 2.0 liter from North America
Worst car I've ever owned
Air conditioning compressor needs replacement.
Air conditioning condenser needs replacement.
Various A/C hoses need replacement.
Starter motor replaced.
Water pump replaced.
Corrosion on the inner A pillar.
Rust in various parts body joints, probably due to poor paint preparation.
Rear disc brakes need replacement, price quoted is 3 times that of front brake replacement.
Power window motor needs replacement.
The car is fast and handles well. Off ramps are exciting.
However parts and service are very expensive.
This car is probably the most unreliable vehicle I've ever owned.
I'll never own another Infiniti or Nissan EVER!!
The dealer in my area is a crook to boot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Obviously we're not talking about the same car... I have had my '94 G20 since it was brand new, and the only thing that has been done is the brake pads at 75,000 miles, which is scheduled maintenance. Infiniti is a bellmark for quality and service in the industry, even more so than Lexus. I know, my dad has a Lexus.

I agree. I own a 1992 G20, and the car is so bad that I envy my girlfriend for owning a Honda Civic.

Do not take offense, but it appears that you just got a bad car. Did you have it inspected before purchase? Most of the items that you mentioned should have come up on a thorough purchase inspection.

That's really surprising that you've had so many problems. I have owned one (a '93 model) since it had only 6,000 miles and came with a factory warranty. I admit that we babied the car, but it has had an incredible track record up until today when it currently has nearly 150K miles. I replaced one fuel injector recently and had to replace the CV joints a few years back, but the roads I drive on are some of the worst in the US (Nebraska country gravel). The only other things that have gone wrong are the trunk latch (the electric solenoid switch) and I changed both headlight bulbs when they burned out on low. That's it (not even another light bulb)! I still have the original belts and hoses, alternator, water pump, starter - all the things that normally should have worn out by now. The struts are starting to get old and I've changed brakes. It's simply been a better car than I've ever owned. I can't compare it too many other Japanese cars, but it is at least TEN times better than a Toyota (I've had two of those both brand new) going by the repair record. I wrote a review for it, but it hasn't shown up yet. Maybe the salt got to yours. Salt really sucks and Japanese cars can't seem to handle it nearly as well as the other manufacturers.
