Review of the 2004 Infiniti FX45

  • If you like the styling, the rest of the vehicle isn't likely to let you down, as the FX45 delivers surprisingly adept handling and spirited performance for an SUV.

Fx45 heaven

Vehicle: 2004 Infiniti FX45 AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

I bought my FX45 used with 80k miles from a private owner and loved the car. I did have to replace the front wheel hub, but other than that it was a joy to drive and very comfortable. I loved the sound system and the unique exterior styling. I test drove the FX35, but found the FX45 to be more sporty and had great performance. Gs mileage is poor in both models though.

Just purchased a 2004 FX45 early in 2011 and I'm so pleased with this [violative content deleted] SUV. Even though FX is 7 years old, performance and looks blows away newer cars today. About performance, this SUV moves and accurate. The 20" wheels like to grabs on to the street however Goodyear stock tires are expensive. May have to look into Yokohama to save $$$$. In addition I just wished I bought it for the price suggested on Edmunds however dealers said no way. Anyway I paid a couple thousands more but wife and me are happy like a bee with FX!!!

Great used car value

Vehicle: 2004 Infiniti FX45 AWD 4dr SUV (4.5L 8cyl 5A)

I purchased my 6yr old FX45 cash after selling my 350Z Roadster. Yes it reminds of sports car compared with an SUV, but if you own a sports car, don't think the FX will match it; it won't. The styling is polarizing, but I'm addicted to it, although now in 2010 it doesn't stand out like it did back in the day. I evaluated my purchase based upon proven Nissan reliability and longevity, bullet proof engine, purchase price vs. projected residual value when I sell; cost of taxes, registration and insurance; and available features comparable to new cars. I estimate that my cost to own for the next 5 years will be less than a tenth of what a new vehicle with similar features will be.

I can't see how they would discontinue the QX4 and have only the FX45 as their only SUV. Besides the FX45 is being marketed as a crossover SUV, more sport less utility. If they only have the one FX4...
