But, its really behind the times vis-a-vis technology and options.
The motor, design, and fit and finish are all excellent.
But, that teeny-tiny sunroof.
And the nav?
I never, ever, ever use it.
The ipod interface is horrendous.
No cargo cover unless you pay for it?
Pay $45K+ for a vehicle and not get a cargo cover?
The overall instrument panel is weak - same as in my previous G35.
I don't know if the '13 improved these options or not, but I don't think so.
You'd think with as great as this vehicle looks and drives that the attention to detail and available options would be better.

This is our second FX.
Our first was a 2008 and we loved it!
Fast, comfortable great handling and sounded great. The lease ran out so we got a 2012. Mistake.
Infinity replaced the 5 speed transmission with a cheap 7 speed transmission. It robs power, is confused, shifts up and down at random and delays during quick acceleration (like when you need to pass a car). The manual function is very dangerous. When down shifting, the transmission disengages and the car free-falls for a full second until the transmission re-engages. Also, after 6 months there will be a foul smell from the AC upon start up. The dealer will recommend turning off the AC for a few secs every time you park. Really?
