New model is cheap

2012 Infiniti FX FX35 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Review
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?
Favorite Features
Great redesign of the dashboard. Love the 360 degree camera. AC seats are great in Florida.
Suggested Improvements
Re-locate the side mirror controls from under the dashboard. Really? Bring back the signature throaty exhaust system (why did you design this out)? Put back the storage in the doors that were designed out. Put the old 5 speed xmsn back in. Get rid of the cheap plastic grill and cheap center console. Redesign the AC drain system so the mold does not accumulate and produce a foul smell. Hire back the design engineers that designed this SUV right the first time!
