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!

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.

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

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.
