My previous review, entitled "hugely flawed" now need updating. My wife's EX went in for a service and for attention to the gearbox. She had mentioned the problem to the service department on two occasions and was fobbed off with "it's the car, it's normal", a somewhat typical reaction to females in an automotive environment. This time the service representative I dealt with was more positive. "Sounds like it needs the software upgrade". That is what was done and, guess what... tons more response. It now feels like her 2008 EX. Quick and ultra-responsive with no silly down changes. It's a shame the dealer didn't offer this first time round; perhaps it wasn't available.
Beautiful interior, excellent fit and finish, very responsive (now). Smooth engine. A perfect blend of a small SUV with sports sedan performance. Infiniti have redeemed themselves.
As with many manufacturers these days, to get the features you want you have to buy features you don't. Infiniti ned to give customers more choice.
Bring the EX37 out for even more performance.
Otherwise, happy as Larry.
