Pros Impressive acceleration. Beautifully appointed interior. Distinctive design that stands out from competitors.
Cons Trunk space not huge but adequate.
Summary I have had this car for over 2 months and it still impresses. The balance between sport and luxury cannot be matched, and it gets excellent fuel range. I had previously owned an 08 Infiniti G, a 2001 Audi A4, and a 1998 Volvo C70 coupe so was looking for a slightly larger sport sedan that handled well. The Infiniti line gets excellent reliability and has more interesting designs than other luxury car manufacturers. Simply put this Infiniti M hybrid does everything well, an oustanding ownership experience.
Pros Styling, Performance, Fule economy, Technology
Cons Rear Wheel Drive only
Summary The Infiniti M35h is more than people give it. The Infiniti is not just like a Lexus GS460h it has more power much better fule economy and is better for the environment. The Infinitis batteries are Lithium Ion batteries not Nickel Metal batteries which helps the environment. The Nickel Metal batteries are in the long run worse than gas for the environment. The Infiniti also has much newer technology and is A TOP SAFETY PICK, unlike the Lexus. And no offence but as some other people pointed out the Lexus has been out for six years, and that just shows that Lexus is behind the compaction in styling and technology.
Pros If you like fish, you can drive one. 32 MPG is good. Just as fast as the Lexus GS though its 6 years late.
Cons Rebadged nissan Fuga based on 370Z, why is it $55,000? Horrible ride, wavy interior is dizzy. Then this copies the Lexus GS, which is a proven hybrid. The only other Nissan hybrid is the Altima which uses Toyota tech! This is unproven. Lexus=state of the
Summary a rebadged knock-off from a struggling brand and ugly to bootNot to mention we Europeans won't be bothered with this brand that means nothing.

Pros I drove an Altima hybrid a couple of years ago. It performed really well, fun to drive, supposedly got 37 mpg.
Cons The battery took up nearly the whole trunk space and the mileage wasn't good enough to justify the price.
It's not worth the extra environmental damage caused by producing the hybrid battery. As of this time, there is no company that recycles batteries
Pros None at this time.
Cons Everything read in the commentary.
Summary M35h is a packaging trick to have the consumer overpay for a Nissan-made vehicle badged Infiniti. AND you have to manually enter your phone contact? AND you have to compromise trunk space? How many more ANDs are there?? Compare to a entry-level but fully loaded Luxury Lincoln MKZ hybrid with GPS, Sync, heated/cooled seats and more, pay $10k+ less, and get at least 10 more MPG city/ 9 more MPG Hwy and you know which vehicle in the best buy. In addition, I just read Lincoln received the JD Power & Associates highest rating for vehicle durability. Time to take off the blinders and start looking at domestic vehicles for the smart-money purchases!Liveitup602, I can understand your point IF I actually stated re-packaged. Please re-read as I did not state this. I said packaging -- perhaps a better word selection would have been marketing. Still Nissan made and managed. Do I know anything about cars? You can disagree with a perspective, but personal attacks are tasteless.
