1995 Infiniti G20 2.0 from North America


Very expensive mistake


Many transmission problems for this car, I'm afraid to say, in fact so many that I had to give it a bad reliability score. I've heard everyone else that has had one say they are great cars.. but I just don't see it.

General Comments:

Very expensive mistake.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Uhh...automatics are known to be crappy... all the other people that like their cars have 5-speeds...

I currently own a 1996 Infiniti G20 with an automatic transmission. I have no major complaints other than I wish that the little thing had a ounce more horsepower, that's all. I have owned 6 Nissan/Infinti products, they are great reliable vehicles. I will purchase another Infinti product in the near future.

This car sucks. I've put in a new transmission, and a $600 sensor here, and a $300 sensor there...it's a freakin' lemon... anyone wanna buy a car? This thing is bleeding me dry.

I've heard many nasty things about the automatic version of the G20. Many people say Nissan can't make an automatic transmission if their life depended on it. I've heard different. I have a 5 speed '91 G20, and I love it.

I to own a g20 t 1995, its automatic and it runs like a kitten. I never heard of transmission problem (I have an other friend who has a 93 manual) just great.

I have a 92 g20 and the transmission was replace as well as the engine. Would not recommend this model especially after 100K.

170,000 miles and still running strong.

A/C and automatics are for girls.

My 95 G20t is faster and handles better than all of my friends 2000+ Civics, Accords, Toyotas etc...

Preventative maintenance, guys and girls. READ YOUR OWNERS MANUAL. Follow that and this car will go far beyond 200k.

Sunroof motor and seat height adjuster replaced under warranty. Clunking noise from front suspension links at low speeds.

General Comments:

A hell of a drive, easily the best handling sedan in it's class. Engine could use a bit more torque for in-town driving; works great on highway and backroads, but the seats give me a sore back. Local dealer treats me like royalty, even though I bought it used. I'd have another in a skinny minute.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I've got a 1995 Infiniti G20t with manual transmission. I sympathize with the low-torque observation, but in general, this car is bullet-proof. Fit and finish are excellent. Steering feel is very good. The only things that have needed replacement are rear brakes and the exhaust system. And the car has 75,000 miles on it!

Looking for a well-depreciated but fun second car, I stumbled upon a '94 Infiniti G20t 5speed, and bought it right away (I'd been looking for months, unable to make up my mind!).

I'd been looking at Jettas (I've owned many watercooled VW's and loved them, but just wanted a change). I'm hoping this G20t is as reliable as Consumer Reports claims, because I love the way it handles and its understated good looks. -Don Swier.

After months of searching for the perfect used car for myself that I could have fun in, depend on, and afford, I found myself entrapped in the sleek curves, elegant handling, and stop-on-a-dime brakes of a 1995 Infiniti G20T. It is turning out wonderfully, the beauty has never ever had a problem her whole life and now has 150,000 miles on it!!
