Had the FX 35 one year now and love it. Handling and performance like a sports car (previous car was BMW M3) with utility of SUV. Gas mileage is 19-21 mph. Only downside is the hard ride, which I like and part of the sport suspension, but not for some expecting soft SUV-type ride. This is a sports car with unbelievable utility. Don't forget its great looks and comfortable front seats.
