Pros: looks, sporty drive
Cons: EXPENSIVE REPAIRS, POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
Advice: DON'T BUY ITI own an FX35 AWD (2004). It has 24,000 KM on it and I have had to have the DVD player changed (no charge) and now have to replace the AC condenser at a cost of $1300. After spending $60000 on the car and not even reaching the 30,000 mark, Infinity of Canada and my local dealership would provide absolutely NO support in resolving my issue. They said it was a road hazard issue due to a rock hitting the condenser (no way that can be proven to be true). I was previously very happy with the vehicle, but after this episode I will definitely NOT be buying infinity again . Customer Satisfaction is obviously NOT a concern of theirs!
Pros: 280 Hp and handling
Cons: Small entry way into back prohibits some large cargo
Advice: Buy it and enjoy- really a top notch sports car with SUV featuresThis car is a blast to drive. I never use crusie control anymore because it is so much fun to have that throtle at your command. I have owned my FX 35 for over a year, and still get stopped all of the time by people asking about it. I drove it to a party recently and it struck up many conversations. Not one single issue to bring it into the shop except for oil changes. Infiniti really hit a home run with this SUV. Agter driving it I don't want to drive anything else, and would buy another in a second.
Pros: performance and looks
Cons: seat control location
Advice: make sure it holds enough stuff for you.I've owned my 2005 FX35 for about 7 weeks. It seems very well built and tight. Rattle free so far. I love the performance, handling and brakes. I have the nav system with laser cruise control. Once you use it, it would be hard to use standard cruise control again. Radio is excelletn. Backup camera is handy. I think the seat controls ought to be moved to the door or the side of seat, not the top where they are now.
Cons: Blind sides on mirrors could be better
Advice: Buy this vehicle if you want a sports and luxury feelI purchased the Black FX35 with the tour,sports and tech package. I have to travel a pretty good distance and the ride is quiet and superb. Everyone stops me to ask about this Suv. It's sleek and it moves. The gas mileage is average but you get alot of luxury options for your money.
Pros: sports suspension
Cons: could have better radio
Advice: get sports packagei purchased a 2005 fx35 with touring,tech and sports package.I exchanged for 18' tires.I love my fx35,with the sport suspension this car is very tight.And exchanging for 18' tires,it has a nice ride.This car is a race car with some utility,it handles curves with ease,has room enough for passengers and enough space for some storage.I like the etched trim with black interior,seats are comfortable and fit like a glove.I highly reccomend this veichle.
Pros: the design, nav system and the handling, transferable warranty
Cons: rough ride..cabin sound level
Advice: shop around....visit dealerjust one badass ride. I had to have one and after two years I found a fx35 fully loaded with 8000 miles for 33500. Liquid copper..never ending collection of features, the nav system, radar cruise control, tire pressure monitor..the car is rough riding however and could/should have been made quieter..amazing sound system, heated seats, gas mileage 18.5 overall..actualy used the rear camera on a couple of occasions...i added the windscreen for the sunroof and it got quieter with sun roof opened. The dealer treats me and the car like a king...will the honeymoon last? who knows..email with your questions or opinion firstname.lastname@example.org
