We have driven the car for about 7 months and we absolutely love it. Performance is outstanding and it is great fun to drive. Interior and exterior design and quality beats anything else we have seen. We have three kids and can fit three child/booster seats in the back. Cargo space was much larger than expected!! It is wider than the competition and the FX is more practical to load. Great combination of design and performance. With AWD and the powerfull engine, gas mileage (16-21 mpg) is a bit low. It drives like a sport car but is still extremely comfortable. Most other SUVs feel like trucks but not this one. Great control on the road.
Luxury & quality feel, driving performance and design. Practical cargo space. Outstanding seating comfort. Well equipped (just about everything included). Rearview camera, intelligent key, BOSE sound system are all great features.
Not only is this fun to drive, but my wife wants one now. I have had no issues and I don't see the issues people are having with the bluetooth. Both my wife's and my phones work very well. I can't believe the power and comfort of this vehicle. Gas is great. If I wanted better then 23 I would have bought a different car. Yes I feel the road some but that is the sports car in it. WOW!
The POWER of this thing is one to see. The bluetooth. Interior look and exterior of course. back up camera. I-key is very cool and works well.
Only improvement I would make is nothing to do with the car. I would have Infiniti train the owners better. I was treated like I was at a Carmax and not at a luxury car dealership.
After 25 years of driving German sedans, this is our first Japanese made vehicle. Quite impressive. We did not want a truck for our first SUV, and the FX35 is a nice compromise between a sedan and a full sized truck based SUV. Drives much like a sports car on steroids. Powerful, responsive, and fun to drive, yet gets good gas mileage. Smooth transmission, too, as it never has any abrupt shifts. Rides like a nice sedan, but handles deep snow with aplomb. Not as roomy as most SUVs as this vehicle is not meant for hauling a lot of "stuff." Instead, it holds four people in excellent comfort, and handles like a car. We also love the tv camera for backing up. Great visibility all around.
We traded in our Mercedes ML for my wife for the FX and I drive a BMW M Coupe. At first I didn't think it was worth the money considering the rear passenger leg room is sparse, it has the least amount of cargo room in its class, I had to buy a roof rack for our snow boards, its difficult getting our small kids in and out of the rear, and there is A LOT of plastic in the interior. But 15k miles later I love the way it handles (just like a V8), great exhaust note, and superb handling (easy transition to go from my M to this car). As it compares to other SUVs in terms of practicality it isn't a smart choice, but its the best for overall performance and incredible aesthetics.
Reverse camera. Strong exhaust. Great uphill torque. Great re-sale value. BMW-like handling. Very quick in traffic & nimble in the city. Friendly user-face/ controls. Big brakes. Decent service...
Wish I had gotten the upgraded wheels (for aesthetics & I get a lot of snow caught in the wheel well). The worst is when the car slips... its a horrible clunking sound for the stability control (rear dif) to kick-in. Rear seats are uncomfortable on long trips. Too much plastic!
