Great car. It's now 11 years old with over 100k miles, still gets complements. It looks good, sound good, run good, reliable and much more.
Pros: The beautiful orange-brown leather, and the big wheels.
Cons: The seat doesn't adjust to the driver until after it the car is turned on. This is a problem for my husband when he gets in after I have driven.I have driven larger SUVs and smaller cars, and this is the perfect size. You can get a lot in the back, and yet fit in regular parking spaces. The orange-brown leather is gorgeous - always gets admired. Navigation is very accurate compared to other friend's cars.
Pros: The look and the navigational system.. It looks like a sports car and handles like one.
Cons: The leather seats do not breathe.
Advice: Get all the options available if you are going to keep it for 3 or more years. I wish I had gotten the iPod connnectorI love my FX35. I have owned two. I was the first to purchased a 2003 in Las Vegas. The '05 is much better. Very sleek, fast and handles well. Always a head turner. However, the '05 is not as good on gas as the '03. Maximum city mileage is 15.7 miles with all the optimum factors in place. And the headlights are not as bright. but the '05, has fewer bugs. I do wish they would offer cooling seats just like they offer the heated seats. In the desert, the cool seats would make a differene. Small details like having all buttons lit would be nice and the all around camera should be a winner in the 2008. Personally, the smaller '08 does not appeal to me.
Pros: There are so many worth mentioning and here are a few, the comfortable seats, garage door opener, compass, 6 CD changer, oil change reminder, tire rotate reminder, bose stereo sys., etc.
Cons: Viewing objects behind you in reverse
Advice: Buy it!I'm impressed! It's very comfortable, has excellent pick-up speed and handles the road very well. It's more than I expected in a car and I'm a very pleased Infinity customer.
Pros: The engine
Cons: Seat adjusting
Advice: You have to test drive the car “Specially the sport pack, the one with 20” tires” it is different than any other driven cars.Performance wise … It is Nissan 350Z with higher ground clearance. Unique look Unbelievable coming from future vehicle 'Head turning'. Great Handling more-or-less like coupe cars. A bit of harsh ride. but that’s due to the sports suspension,with time you will get used to it. I loved this car.
Pros: Engine and exhaust.
Cons: Seats aren't as comfortable as they could be. The Volvo's were better
Advice: Get the Sport and Touring Pkgs.So far, I love this vehicle. It handles great, looks great, and is a joy to drive. I havent taken it on a long trip yet, but to this point, it;s been great. Sports car dressed up like an SUV!
