Advice: IF YOUR HAULING JUNK THIS AIN'T FOR YOUI GIVE THIS ONE 10 STARS, AFFORDABLE LUXURY AND POWER. LOVE THE ART DECO STYLING, HANDLING TERRIFIC, ACCELERATION SUPERB AND A NICE TUNED EXHAUST SOUND. INTRIGUED FROM THE FIRST LOOK AT THE NY AUTO SHOW WHEN INTRODUCED I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD EXCUSE TO OFFER ONE TO THE WIFE. INSTEAD SHE CHOSE A PT CRUISER. SO GUESS WHO WON THAT ONE? CHRYSLER IN 2001. 2004 CAME MADE THE OFFER AGAIN. PT TURBO PLATNUM LIMITED THIS TIME AND A NEW CORVETTE FOR MYSELF CAN'T LET HER HAVE ALL THE FUN. VISITING DEALERS FOR MY DAUGHTERS NEW CAR I FOUND A 2003 FX35 WITH 8900 MILES. DROVE IT HOME AND GUESS WHAT?? WIFE CAN KEEP THE PT !! ONE PROBLEM 6 CARS AND 6 CAR DRIVEWAY !
Cons: suspension, a little rough
Advice: If you like being unique, this is the car for you.I love my Infiniti FX35. It has been a joy to drive. I have had to adjust to the sports car ride (feel the bumps); but on a smooth surface, it just glides along. I like the snug driver seating. It appears to mold to my body. I am especially attracted to the body style. You have to be on top of the other SUV's to determine which is which, because they are so similar in body style. The Infiniti is unique. If offers all that I need, 1) great performance, 2) style, and decent pricing.
Pros: Interior, controls and engine.
Cons: I like it all.
Advice: BUY IT!I was one the first to buy an FX35 over a year ago in Dallas, TX. I have never had so many people stare at my car and they still do. This is one the most rewarding cars I have ever owned. And I have owned many...BMW, Lexus, Cadillac, etc. I am very satisfied with this car and I can not see myself driving anything else for the next few years. I think I found my soulmate.
Advice: Test driveThis is for the 2004 FX35-The ride is improved over 2003-More compliant,The performance is outstanding as is the handling-Reminds me of my old corvette.Rearview camera,makes up for narrow rear view-But you get used to using mirrors,and look our rear side panel.Fit and finish excellent.Seating is quite comfortable.
Pros: The performance
Cons: The narrow seats
Advice: Makes sure you 'fit' in the driver's seat and longer drives won't make you sorry you went with the FXI really look forward to driving my FX until I've been driving for 20 minutes or so. That's when my ass starts hurting! Performance-wise...what a hoot! I traded in a '97 Maxima SE, which I thought was fun to drive. There's no comparison!
Pros: The engine considering it is a SUV
Cons: Rear view visibility
Advice: If you want a sports car with SUV sensibilities, run out and get this oneOh my!!!! This vehicle is all that and a bag of chips. It appeals to the 'man' side in me with the performance factor and appeals to the 'family' side in me with the SUV factor. The drive is exhilirating (I'm coming from a Ford Explorer 6 cylinder). I stuck with the 18 inch wheels based on everyone's advise and I think it was a good choice. This is not a mini van so of course it's not going to be as comfortable as the Lexus 300 which is based on that type of platform. But for putting a sports car with a SUV together, Infinity did a fantastic job. I did take one star off for comfort because the rear view is limited so it takes some more cautious driving techniques. Cargo space is great for this type of vehicle. I have a wife and 2 kids and cargo space was fine for me. I was able to get both car seats and a double stroller in the back. I still have room for shopping stuff and we can take one person along. Overall, a fantastic car!!!!
