Hi there. Welcome to our site. Just to clarify; your G35 has a manual trans and it shifted from 5th to 2nd by itself?

Thanks for clarifying. Since I can't find a logical explanation of why that would happen or how to repair it, I'll opt out so other experts who may have experienced something similar can chime in. Please do not reply until another expert responds or the site will revert the question back to me. Best Regards.
