I came out of a Range Rover Sport Supercharged. The RRS was in the shop constantly. I purchased the FX35 for it's reliability and I wanted as much of the RRS handling and size as I could get. The FX didn't infatuate me, I just needed out of the RRS. I am now in love with this vehicle. Handling is not quite to the level of the RRS, but the "fun to drive" factor/cost goes to the FX35. The shifting issues are mostly resolved with premium fuel. My fuel economy of highway/city mix is a steady 19MPG! I feel this is good for any vehicle with this speed/performance/AWD. I look forward to my drive everyday! The FX35 is just easy to love. No dealer visits to date (7000 miles).

Bose sound system needs help. Needs a better sub woofer, more control over sound and a little more power.
