Apparently virtually all of the 05/06 Toyota Avalon transmissions failed too, at ridiculously low mileage. Read this in Automotive News a while back. This was in-warranty but apparently the dealers couldn't really get them fixed.

Thumbs up Life is good!

Great news! I dropped by a local Infinity dealership this afternoon on my way home from work to check out a new G-series and they made a VERY acceptable trade-in offer for my Mercedes. Right now, it looks as if my luck has made a turn for the better and I'll be piloting a brand new G-series sedan tomorrow morning.

Selling low and trading high - those Infiniti dealers are no dummies. Let's hope they don't find out about the concealed problem. But you wouldn't have used your real name here.

Nothing concealed here. They never asked and I didn't tell. They took it for a short drive and made me an offer. I accepted and this deal is as good as done tomorrow morning. I'll finally be rid of this unreliable pain in the ass and I'll once again have a vehicle that I can be proud to drive again. She's a 6-speed too!

Just want to say that my 96 W210 with the M104 engine has been reliable and I've not had any transmission problems on it. It currently has 203K miles and still drives very nice. As for Lexus, I've had 2 of them and both have been pretty reliable as well. The first had over 100K miles without any problems when it got totaled in an accident. I still have the second Lexus with over 225K miles with no problems. I do believe that preventative maintenance and how you drive the car has a lot to do how reliable a car is. Hope that the new G will be trouble free for you.

Yes, a brand new 2007 model. So far, I love everything about it. Especially the power. This car absolutely screams and unlike a Benz, I'm not afraid that it'll break.
