Never owned a crossover until now.
Test drove practically every SUV and crossover before deciding to go with the 2007 FX35 AWD with Sport package.
Regretting it now.
Love the looks, inside and out.
But, rides very stiff and only about 15-16mpg regardless of grade of gas and type of driving.
Needs a 6 or 7 speed tranny. Hard to get in and out of back seat.
And, very noisy exhaust system.
Wishing now I got the Edge or MKX instead for the ride, power and MPG.
Even GM's Terrain and Equinox rode quieter and smoother than this FX35.
But, it sure is a pretty vehicle.
20" wheels, memory seat and steering wheel, back up camera, styling and lines, sound system
Better transmission/engine for improved gas mileage and performance, more leg room in rear seat, quieter exhaust system, softer suspension
