Purchased the 2009 in January 2010. Have put about 2,000 miles on it to date. Car is unique looking, powerful, great handling (for an SUV/Crossover). So far no issues/complaints. My first SUV - and coming from a M-B E430 4Matic - I am very pleased. My choices got down to Porshce Cayenne, Audi Q5 and Infiniti FX35. The Infiniti won based on performance, comfort, great interior, and price. Both Consumer Reports and J.D. Powers have commented favorably on reliability for Infinitis
Handling. Overall interior design - especially for front occupants. Exterior design/styling - including seats, materials, dash and center console - all are top of class and match or exceed Audi. 360 Camera View! Redundant/alternative controls for just about everything.
Heated seats don't get hot enough. Very few places to store odds and ends. Need storage under floor in luggage area. MPG is terrible! Should light buttons for Home Link. Keyless on/off button should be disabled while in drive or reverse. Power lift gate is needed for rear hatch.
