Still a crowd stealer

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti FX45 AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

Bought in 2003 when it first came available. Now 2010 and people still comment and stare and look at my Red. Still a scene stealer 7 years later.




Love this thing

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti FX45 AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

I bought this car used and it's the best car I ever owned. If you are undecided between the FX35 and the FX45, don't even think about it go with the 45. The performance is amazing. The features it came with are ahead of its production years (keyless ignition, radar cruise control, back up cam, 20 inch Rims). I average about 17.5 mpg city/highway combined. It has become my daily driver. In three months of ownership I have put 9500 miles on it. I have to let it rest and drive my other car. You won't regret it!




Fx 45 infiniti wonder-car

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti FX45 AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

We have put 101,000 miles on this car. We have not spent a single penny on repair. Not one. I am blown away. I ran it to Amarillo the other day, 90 MPH most of the way and pulled 19 MPG. This car is fabulous. It looks like a cat on steroids and handles like one, rain, snow or shine. Best car I have ever owned, and I have owned many.




Love my fx!!

There are no words how much I love my FX45! All the power and handling you need! Basically it's a sports car, not an SUV!




Really unsatisfied

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti FX45 AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

This car has had more problems than I could count. The rear hatch had a plastic strip detach and bend my roof (there's a recall for this). The engine knocks when cold (there's a recall for this). The dealer still hasn't fixed it after 3 tries. The tires keep losing pressure and then there's an annoying beep (dealer says that comes with the terriorty of having tire pressure sensors.) The most serious problem, the steering wheel knocks when turning to the left.The dealer changed the Rack & Pinion on it 3 times (that's a SERIOUS mechanical problem) and the SAME problem keeps coming back.You would think this car is a lemon but NO. The dealer says it's not. I'm stuck with a car that's not worth the price




Fun

Vehicle: 2003 Infiniti FX45 AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

This is a fun to drive vehicle. 3 years later and the fun is still there. No maintenance problems so far, and any problems have been addressed by dealer. Very fast acceleration and superb handling in dry or wet surface.

Out of curiosity, I inquired about some leftover 2003 FX45s and it does seem that there are no incentives on it, currently. The dealership was only offering invoice on 2003 FX45s. What would be the ...

Since the sales of the new Q45 is less than spectacular(see autosite.com), maybe it is time for Infiniti to put all the goodies of Q45 into FX45 and make this SUV their flagship when it rolls out in e...
