2009 Infiniti FX35 SUV 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

The only single word I can think of to describe this automobile is AMAZING! It drives great (now the transmission is fixed), looks great, sounds great, and is priced great when compared to so called rivals. I test drove the Acura, Lexus, and BMW competing SUV's. Although they all had some great highlights, overall the Infiniti blew them away. It has the performance of the BMW's, all the features of the Acura, and much much better styling then the Lexus.


Best Features

NAV, around view camera, interior and exterior styling, comfort, heated & cooled seats, performance, gas mileage for an SUV, real maple trim, 20 inch tires, and it definitely has the X factor!


Worst Features

The only problem I had was with the transmission. I took it in and they were able to fix it. Infiniti said some of the FX's had some type of programming issues with their trannies. Now it runs great!!

2009 Infiniti FX35 SUV 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Favorite car I have ever owned. Considered and test drove many other high end cars, but wisely chose the FX. It's an eye catcher on the main roads, and a performing BEAST on the back roads!


Best Features

Favs: Around view camera, Nav, upgraded leather interior, gas mileage for an SUV, sitting position, rear leg room, reclining rear seats, so many don't know where to stop.


Worst Features

Yeah, that would be a BIG no! Love this car!!

Review

This is my first Infiniti. While I enjoy the unique exterior style of the new SUV (as well as some of the gadgets) I must admit that the 7 speed transmission drive train leaves me speechless... in a bad way. The transmission wants to shift into high gear (7th?) at road speeds of 25mph. Even in DS mode it is not appreciably different. And if you have to climb any degree of incline at 25mph... wow... the vehicle labors vigorously. There is no downshift without pressing the accelerator halfway to the floorboard; at which point the RPM goes to 5k and the vehicle lungs forward. I hope they do some reprogramming of shift patterns.


Best Features

Back-up cameras and highway performance.


Worst Features

Re-program shift patterns. I am told that the quick shifts were required by California vehicle standards. Note to Infiniti; people outside of California buy these things and expect better performance.

Transmission re-flash works wonders

Review

We bought our FX35 last February. I've been very happy with our purchase, my partner somewhat less so. The car is great fun to drive. The exterior takes a bit of getting used to, but the interior is class all the way. There were two significant issues. The first is rotten rear visibility - either you get used to relying heavily on the rear view and birds-eye cameras or you don't. The second was the transmission. It tended to search for the right gear, refuse to change quickly when floored, and just shift roughly. But there is now an available transmission re-flash (reprograms the computer) - ask about ITB09-032. It works wonders, completely solves the problem. Thanks, Infiniti!


Best Features

Beautiful and comfortable interior. Powerful engine, very nice audio system, good GPS. Drives like a sporty car, not truck-like at all.


Worst Features

Restyle for greater rear visibility and more interior storage. Improve gas mileage and soften the ride a little.
