Review of the 2005 Infiniti FX35

  • A stylish melding of form and function, the FX35 offers carlike handling and all-weather capability in a package that will never be mistaken for your average Explorer.

  • Pros

    Standout styling, handles like a sport sedan, roomy interior for four, long list of standard features, strong V6.

Best in its class...however

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti FX35 AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I traded my Explorer for this vehicle. I am very happy with everything about it. The style, the performance and simplicity of regular maintenance. Changing the driveline is very simple. Take bolts out, fill it with the proper fluids and put bolts back in. Other than the tranny, all fluids are available anywhere. Air filter is easy to change. Spark plugs are harder because of all the wires and the cover, but shouldn't take longer than an hour. BIGGEST problem of this vehicle is its valve covers (alot of them). They leak after 80K and you have to change them BOTH. With the cheapest options (you buy the parts, you get your buddy to install it), it will still cost you $600+. That sucks

Fun Car never had any real repairs had the car for between 45000 and 94000 miles. Get the sports version has the silver rack on top and the larger tires seems to ride better than the other versions of this vehicle. Uses lots of gas around the city will average only about 16 MPG driving mellow. I am pretty tall with long legs and the car is comfortable. Cannot say that about too many.

Transmission failure at 96k

Vehicle: 2005 Infiniti FX35 Rwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I bought my FX-35 from an Infiniti dealership with 29K almost five years ago. I now have 96K. In this time i have gone through two dash boards due to deffects in the material which was fixed by the dealerships, two tears in the side of the uphostery, a small plastic gear in the front seat controls has broken which is a $900 bill and now the transmission has failed. I took the car into the dealership for an unusual noise in the drive train and routine maintenace. i picked it up and it wouldn't shift into reverse without pressing down on the gas pedal. And then there are those horrible, horrible Bridgestone Potenza tires.
