I have owned my FX35 for approx 6 months. It is cool as h*ll. Mp3 not great but it makes up for it in cool points. Bluetooth has a suck factor. Lane departure. ...thank God you can shut that off. Assisted cruise sometimes is a pain but if you hold the on/off button on the cruise down for 1.5 seconds it will turn into regular cruise control. Great sound system. Excellent in snow. Great vehicle folks.
Having owned a previous Nissan product (1993) Maxima that I had for 10 years (best car i ever had), I ended up buying a 2006 FX 35. Always loved the styling and after driving it (and competitors) decided on the FX. I still love the driving experience, but not necessarily the ownership experience. Have had multiple issues with having to return the vehicle to the dealership (which I admit, Infinity of Coconut Creek has been great) for many issues related to trim/cosmetics, I have also had to have 3 mechanical issues with the car that if I had to pay for out of pocket would have been very expensive if not covered under warranty. I do not think I would purchase another Nissan/Infinity product
Style, handling, interior space (other than cargo, but I didn't buy it for cargo hauling)
better vendor for trim (interior and exterior). didn't expect it to ride like a Cadillac, but didn't expect it to ride like a freight train either
I just purchase this car about 1 months ago, 2 weeks in the engine light cuts on so I took it to the dealership the dealer tells me they can't find the problem and why the light is staying on so I've been riding around in a loaner car for 2 weeks
did not have time to check everything out
let me have my car more than 2 weeks before I have to put it in the shop
This is my second FX. Bought '04 and put on 120,000 mi and then purchased '06 with 11,000 that now has 96,000 miles on it. Combined I have over 200,000 miles experience with FX and I'm thinking about 09 FX 50 now. I have had zero mechanical issues in either FX. Very reliable. I spend 4 hours/day in car, and this is my rolling office. Sports car, luxury sedan, and some utility makes it perfect for me. I have black/brick, all options/ chromes, and can't find another car I'd rather drive. I have much experience buying tires and I recommend 20" Yokahamas or Nittos. from Discount Tire. They improve ride. Combining fun to drive, reliability, styling and wow factor - can't lose with FX
Exhaust note, sport package/seats (must get), Bose tunes, cornering, keyless entry, Tech pkg, people still compliment it, rock solid suspension, fun in sun/snow/rain, dealer support. It really is a sports car wrapped in an SUV body - gotta go test drive FX 50 next week.
Bluetooth bad in '06 model. Lane departure warning annoying and assisted cruise control jolting.
