This is my 3rd Infiniti, I leased a 2007 FX35, 2008 G35, and now this one a 2010 FX35. I went with tech package and NAV. Final price was about $56K with all the bells and whistles. I have to admit I am a little disappointed by this year's model. Ext design wise - you either love it or hate it. The tech stuff - stay away from it. Doesn't worth the money, doesn't work from time to time. Don't like the fact they use the same cheap console nobs on all their models. As a techie, I didn't like the user interface, its not that intuitive. It has an aggressive look, and its fun to drive, but didn't like few features on the new one. See bellow.
Look - ext. design, comfort, aggressive drive, road control, and overall drive feel - really good. Service I get from my dealership top notch!
Safety bells and whistles system along with NAV crashes from time 2 time. Gas pedal slow to respond. Gear box is rough and jerky on low speeds. No pwr rear lift gate. BlueT is horrible. No incoming caller ID on iphone 3G and 3GS. Cheap console plastics - used on all mod. 15-16 MPG city & 19-20 HW.
Okay, I've only had my fx35 for a week. But got the RWD version with the 18 inch wheels. I love the 20 inch wheel look, but got the 18s. Love the power and handling. View is great, and interior is luxurious. This is my second Infiniti, and I love the brand. Strong engine, great features. Appears MPG will be better than my 06 M, but still early. 7 speed takes a bit to get used to, but seems to fit well with the engine. Just so you know, there is a pretty significant blind spot due to the shape of the rear windows. But a well built, fun to drive, head turning crossover. And it does have decent storage in the back.
Finally bought my first FX, and love it. Corners well, quiet, comfortable, and looks great! Plenty of power there when it's needed or you just want a little adrenaline rush.
Body Style. Heated/Cooled seats.
Wish they'd bring back the Burnt Orange Color instead of the gold, bleh. They don't offer a remote start package. While you can get this after the fact, it would be nice to know you aren't getting something that won't void the warranty.
