Common problems with Infiniti

Some common problems with Infiniti cars won’t make it as a USA recall, or in most markets, but they can still be just as frustrating. Below this article Car Recalls readers leave reports on problems they have with Infiniti cars, also you will see the latest official recalls below the discussion.


Technology inside our modern vehicles won’t help common problems with Infiniti cars, as we have already seen with iPhone 5 bluetooth problems for Infiniti’s G35. This just adds to other reports of transmission issues in the past, although in one of the biggest recall years it was Takata airbags hitting the headlines that impacted the brands SUVs as well.

  • Graham

    Not certain if you have already heard, but the 2014-2015 Infiniti QX60 has an issue with its front wheel hub assembly fasteners, and so needs to be recalled in order for it to be inspected and tightened if needed.

  • George

    The radio in my 2007 G35X seems to act very strangely the first time I start the engine. There are shortages in the signal, although after 10 minutes seems to sort itself out. What can be causing this?

  • Paul

    After allowing the engine on my Q50 to warm for five minutes in the garage all sorts of warning lights started to come on. The first suggested the AWD system was overheated, then it said the system had an error, and on top pf that the Chassis Control System warning light came up as well.

  • Jane

    When I try to play music in my QX60 via my iPhone through the cars stereo, I cannot seem to get any sound come through.

  • Shane

    It’s so convenient using a push-start button on my Infiniti, but a complete nightmare now that it has stopped working. hate to think what will happen once all cars have buttons to start their cars.

  • Sid

    Why is it that the dials on my dash seem to stutter for a few seconds after first starting my 2015 Infiniti JX?

  • Michael

    My 2005 Infiniti G35 has an issue with its elections, the radio keeps playing up and the climate control does not allow me to control the temperature and fan speed.

  • Roland

    What would cause the battery to keep draining on my 2008 Infiniti G35x?

  • Ricardo

    I have a 2002 Infiniti QX4 and for some reason it stalls when trying to accelerate, I have a feeling it could be sensor related, but which sensor would cause such an issue?

  • Marshall

    I have now had a second exhaust manifold go on my 2003 Infiniti M45. Thankfully, the first one was fixed while still under warranty, but not so for this second one. Surely these things should not crack, and no twice when the car had done just 65,000 miles?

  • Daisy

    The brake pedal on my 2013 QX56 goes all the way to the floor. Could this be a simple leak, or an issue with the master cylinder?

  • Ben

    The door lock actuator on my M35 has stopped working, which I have been quoted $700 to replace, is there a cheer solution?

  • Tim

    The drums on my Infiniti G25 have overheated and warped. I cannot understand why they would get so hot, it;s not as though I drive it very fast.

  • Lilly

    Why does the alarm keep going off on my 2001 Infiniti QX4. It can be turned off with the remote, but then after a while it will log off again. I have taken it to several garages, but they have been unable to find an answer as to why it keeps happening.

  • Patrick

    I have a 1995 Infiniti J30 and while driving and coming to a stop the car seems to idle much lower than it once did. Not only that, but the automatic gearbox no longer seems to chnage gear at the right moments, and so driving seems more of a chore than anything now. There are also occasions when I slow down too fast the car will stall, which has to be link to the low idling.

  • Neil

    For some reason the glove box on my 2003 Infiniti M45 has started to sag, and the console cover has also become loose. If yours has the same issue take it back to the dealer, as it is a manufacturing defect, and so will be repaired free of charge.

  • Macy

    How can you pay so much for a car like the 2007 Infiniti FX45, yet the finish of the interior look and feel so cheap? What also adds to my anger is the fact the interior has started to bubble all over the dash. This is not a good look, and also I find it very embarrassing at the same time. Is this a common issue, and also am I now looking at a huge repair bill?

  • Karl

    I currently have a 2002 Infiniti QX4, and for some reason it is boring through its oil. In less than 5 miles it managed to burn around 4.5 qts of oil. I have been to several garages to see if there was a way to repair the engine, but two of them said that a new engine was required. I just find it so hard to believe that in this day and age people are unable to replace a certain part within an engine that is causing it to burn through its oil.

  • Nigel

    The A/C actuators under the dash of my 2010 Infiniti QX56 are broken. It now makes such a loud noise all the time, and the worst thing is, the warranty has not that long run out. The annoying thing is, there had been a service bulletin for this issue, yet Infiniti is still not prepared to fix the issue for me, even at a discounted rate.

  • Liam

    I know that my 1997 Infiniti Q45 is getting on a bit now, as she is now 18 years old, but that does not mean I want to get rid of her because of an issue with the transmission. I recently gave the car a service, in which I changed the filter and transmission fluid, and ever since then the car started to jerk and slip, and I now fear a new transmission will have to be paid out for, unless I have moseyed something silly.

  • Julie

    If you are going to buy a new Infiniti EX5 or any other model come to that, then I would consider against paying an extra $700 plus to have a clear coat. This is because myself and a few people I know have had an issue where after a month or so the clear coat starts to look like rain drops. I have since been in a battle with the dealer, and also the company that manufactured the clear coat to pay for a complete repair of my vehicle, but as yet have not come to a solution.

  • Meg

    I took my Infiniti M45 to the main dealer due to a problem with the fuel gauge, as I have been getting inaccurate readings. The computer was reset, which I them assumed had fixed the issue. However, when the gauge got to a quarter, it then goes back up to full, which is a real pain. I have since been in an argument with them because they now say the warranty has run out, yet this was clearly an issue during the warranty period, so what am I to do?

  • Jason

    I’m not very happy because I bought a 2008 Infiniti QX56, little knowing that some of them had an issue with their radiator, as coolant from the radiator can often leak into the transmission, causing major damage. If I were you, just be weary when buying this model.

  • Juliet

    The AC is not working as well as it should on my 2000 Infiniti QX4 because the radiator calling and heating core that is under the dash gets clogged with fine particles. This allows it to retain moisture, which then drips into the car, and then forms a wet patch on the floor. Is there a way to fix this, or does it mean replacing both these parts?

  • Seb

    How come the transmission begins to play after the warranty on my Infiniti Q45 expires, as I did take out extended cover with a third-party, and finally decided to stop paying? Now the transmission has started to slip, and also jerk, and I have tried changed the oil and filter, but still the problem persists.

  • Justin

    There seems to be a build up of oil sludge in the engine of my Infiniti i35, which is now starting to make the engine run funny. I have been told by various people that this is a common issue with the V6 version, yet Infiniti do not tell anyone this, and are not prepared to look into this.

  • Marcos

    I have had to have 5 wheel alignments on my 2014 Infiniti Q50 because the tires keep cupping. Surely that number of times shows that there is something seriously wrong and that the dealer should now doing something about it?

  • Monica

    I have a sticking accelerator on my Infiniti QX4. This has happened at the most dangerous of times, and people tend to think I am being impatient while waiting at traffic lights.

  • Allison

    I would have expected better from my Infiniti FX45 seeing as though this is a high-end car. I say this because bubbles have started to appear on the dash and they look ugly and embarrassing. And, because this car is now 7 years old there seems no chance that Infiniti will fix the issue, which is silly because this has to be a manufacturing problem.

  • Nile

    The InTouch system in my Infiniti Q50 does not work as it should. The apps will not work with the phone, and the dealer has no idea how to fix it, or that’s what I have been told.

  • Shirley

    I have a 2004 Infiniti FX35 and the front passenger power lock will not open when using keyless entry. There is also an issue with the trunk, as this will often not work mechanically, and so has to be done manually instead. Have found that the door has been left open overnight, and so have become very conscious of this, but what can I do to resolve the issue?

  • Naomi

    The engine light has starting to blink and the entire car feels as though it is shaking and vibrating. I was told at first that the cause if the problem was the oxygen sensor, but that has been replaced and still the shaking continues.

  • Kenny

    Oh dear, I have just learned that Nissan has issued a recall for 60,000 Infiniti luxury SUVs worldwide, 20,000 of which are in the US alone. The reason is because the 2014-2015 because the Q50 gasoline and hybrid SUVs may have faulty electronic steering, which could malfunction.

  • eddy

    I’m in a bad mood for a new car. 334-782-3570
