Pros: Space! Leather seats are really nice too.
Cons: The mileage
Advice: Be ready to spend money on gas.I feel great in it, I love the attention I get from other mothers driving SUV's. I am sure they wish they where driving my car instead! I love its appearance, the way it drives, how fast it speeds up, in short this is definetely in my 'I wish I was driving this car sooner' list.
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!
Pros: Handling & Ride
Cons: Heated seats are slow to heat up.
Advice: Well worth a test drive. I drove the BMW X3, Porshe, Jeep Overland, Acura MDX, Lexus RX330 and the FX stood out as the clear winner in value and performance.This is the best handling SUV in its price range - out performs the Porche for a lot less. Intelligent Cruise control works great and is a feature well worth getting! Drives like a sports car, with the quality and technology of a luxury car.
Pros: Emphasizes Sport over Utility
Cons: Sacrifices Utility for Sport
Advice: The FX is a SUV for drivers, not passengers or cargoI've had an FX35 with the the Touring, Performance and Technology Packages for 8 months and 11,000 miles. The FX emphasizes the 'S' in SUV. The FX35's 280 hp engine is more than adequate and its manumatic transmission is excellent, the sport suspension is taut and doesn't allow much body roll, the 20' wheels and tires are wide and grippy, the exhaust note is the best available from a V-6 engine, and the seats are supportive and comfortable, even for passengers. However, the FX sacrifices the 'U' in SUV. It has a stiff ride for passengers, more engine noise than most passengers like, rear doors that must be opened wide for entry and egress, and little cargo room. Performance negatives include an adaptive cruise control that does not function smoothly or reliably enough, a slightly wide turning circle of 38.7 ft, and poor gas mileage (16.7 mpg on the highway at 80 mph and 15 mpg or less around town). The lane departure monitor works well enough to be useful during long highway excursions. The nav system's maps are 2 to 3 years out of date and its user interface, both the display and the controls, could be greatly improved. However, as a driver, I prefer the FX's balance of 'S' and 'U' over that of any other SUV I have driven.
Pros: unique look
Cons: absolutely nothing
Advice: go for it. It is an awsome suv.perfect urban SUV. Great Handling and get up. Very Comfortable. Awesome unique look. A++
