I drove Audi's for 12 years; after looking at the Q5, Acura, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota & Ford decided on the EX35, and have never looked back.
Fun to drive, classy interior, tight fit & finish, cozy cabin, retro clock, warm leather, wood accents, the works!
Was surprised that the XM nav, weather & traffic require separate purchases after 3 months.
Mileage isn't what they promise or other reviews mention.
Had one problem within a week of purchase with a rear "clunk" when going over a bump which Infiniti immediately repaired.
Storage is fine for short trips or 2 passengers.
I would recommend the car to anyone.
Cool sonar & birds eye parking cams.
Awesome Premium interior with Boze sound.
Keyless start allows cabin lights to go on where you're within 3 feet of the car.
Keyless entry, buttons on the exterior doorknobs instead.
The Bluetooth/phone and NAV require a lot of key strokes.
Does not seem to be intuitive.
The window sticker specified a compass on the rearview mirror but there isn't.
It should be -- the map compass icon is very hard to interpret as you have to use the reciprocal. No locks on the rear doors, so driver has to unlock them.
Mileage is weak, and the service dept admitted as much.
