2010 Infiniti EX35 Journey 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Very fun AWD vehicle, 0 to 60 in 6.5 seconds w/ nice, solid suspension and brakes. Flexible, comfortable, capable, best interior of all small SUV's. At ease on the commute / fancy night out and on rutted dirt roads, snow, etc. Rear wheel drive bias is a plus. Don't let the reported small storage behind the rear seats scare you off. When I thought about what I truly needed the car for and how often I needed a giant box to haul things in, I realized I didn't need the box more than a few times a year. The storage space is surprisingly good, the car is a blast to drive, and the navigation and sound systems are top of the line. Huge incentives make this car extremely competitively priced.
Best performance, handling, int. layout, and highest quality nav. and sound system package of any small SUV on the market and I looked at all. Size is just right. Extra rear leg room created by indentations in the back of the front seats. Surprising amount of usable storage space. Love the car.
Better perf. and mpg (my 335i was better on both fronts). Fix lge. blind spot created by top of pass. seat and door pillar. Softer, cushier seats w/ adjustable front bolsters. Remote start. More "oomph" to heated seat backs - not well balanced with bottoms. Remote rear hatch open and close.
