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.

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.

Really nice vehicle but a ton of problems. Ignition coils (twice), catalytic converters (twice), tire pressure sensor, and interior lights. Love the looks and it's fun to drive but the reliability is suspect. (45kmiles)

I have similar problem to another post. My dashboard is blistering like a boy scout with poison ivy. I complained within the warranty period but service would not act on it. I should have sued. He said "No, never seen or heard of such a problem. You can bring it in when the factory rep is here, but he's not likely to do anything." I like the car in many ways, but when you get down to it, for the price, they just can't compete against Lexus because of the quality of service Lexus provides. My wife had a Lexus 11+ years and her interior looked great. When we had a problem with the A/C "out of warranty" they still replaced it because they said there were factory defects. THAT'S SERVICE.

Exceptionally well built vehicle amazing performance and durability - no warranty claims at 85K miles!!! Performance and handling are outstanding for a vehicle of this size - a sports car in hiking boots!

Excellent build quality. Had it for 5 years now and never had a mechanical problem. The only problem was the CD player, but the dealer replaced it with a brand new one without me paying for anything. This car handles very well, easy to drive, not as comfortable as some other SUVs though. Guess it's the sports tuned suspension I have.
