Advice: The 45's are harder to find...but so worth the looking! Incredible power/punch left when 80+ MPH.I did not have car-hunger when I went to buy a car. I saw the Fx45 and thought 'wow!' I drove it, loved it...but did not buy it. Over the next few weeks, I test drove the BMW, Mercedes, Range Rover, Lexus, Tahoe/Yukon, Cayenne and the Toureg...but nothing compared. I went back and bought the Fx45. Fast, gutsy and handles like it's on a rail. The others weren't close to the performance of this vehicle! The interior is superb! Navigation system is 2nd only to the Lexus system. Rear camera is excellent feature! Very high quality feel to all components.
Cons: limited sight in rear veiw when backing up (can easily be fixed with sensors)
Advice: You have to check this car out!!!This car rocks....ive had my ivory pearl FX45 AWD for a year now and i still like it a lot. I put in the tech package ...this is a great car because of its sporty feel and bold looks...its not a car that will blend in with all the others.The only thing that was that the sight was limited in the rear...but with the camera and the sensors i had installed it makes it very easy. I am happy with my purchase
Advice: Avoid unless you like problems.What a quality nightmare. Not what I expected for dumping 50k in a car. And the more I drive it the more I realize its a bad decision. Its too small and cramped for a SUV. It is very fast for a SUV and I guess handles well but I just drive it to work and around town, so that really means nothing. The ride is harsh and gets harsher as tires wear to being umbearable. Mixed with the hard plastics, it became a mess. I like the looks of this car but I got plenty of 'Clowns show' jokes from friends. Overall, for 50k, I expected more. Infinti has a long way to go and I am back to BMW or Lexus.
Pros: Handling & Power
Advice: Get to your dealer and buy one, it's a blast to drive.Owsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
