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.
Look and style. Handles very well.
Better build quality for the interior. Better response and relationship from service department. Cure horrible blind spots or include back-up camera as a standard.
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!
I have a 2005 FX35 that I paid 43k and I would not recommend any of the FX35. Infinity dealer replaced my bubbling dash board July 2008 when my car had only 28,000 miles. Now 14 months later at 40k miles the same problem. Out of warranty by 2 months and Infiniti dealer is not willing to help me unless I pay $1500 to have the dash board replaced with no guaranty that this will not happen again. The problem is the glue that was used in the dashboard is causing the problem. You pay good money for a car and it is a big problem. It will lower the value of my car. I do not recommend this car to anyone.
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.
You'll fall in love with this car after your first test drive. Excellent build quality. Just as good as Lexus and Acura, if not better. But more stylish, especially for young people.
Could make the suspension a little more comfortable. And yeah, the rear passenger doors have to be wide open to get in.
