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


Review

I picked up my FX45 on Saturday and have
been on cloud 9 every since. This
vehicle is Incredible! Looked at the X5,
Cayenne, Touareg, etc. problem was, I
test drove the 45 first.
Looking forward to many happy years
together.


Best Features

Style, Speed, Sound System


Worst Features

More freedom to customize the packages. Really didnt need the "tech pack" but had no choice with the 45's. ps. a Cicada deflector, the darn things keep messin up my front grill when I hit them at 90 miles an hour! lol.

Review

I just bought this SUV fully loaded!
What a blast! Much more FUN (with all
the options) than the Cayenne S,
Toureg V8, Lexus RX330 and LX470,
Volvo XC-90, & BMW X5 4.4i I test
drove. Its got a ton of fun toys
built in and more cargo space than the
others. If you want a smoother ride
then buy a Lexus but if it's fun you
want definitely test drive this sports
SUV. The Cayenne S, Toureg V8, and X5
4.4i are very nice SUV's (especially
the Cayenne S w/air suspension!) but I
had to buy my car (vs. lease) and
didn't like their poor reliability
ratings. The V8 does burn a lot of
fuel but it's worth it...especially
when blowing past other cars on the
freeway.


Best Features

keyless entry & startup, automatically adj. seat & steering wheel, fabulous BOSE stereo, backup camera, GREAT NAV system, deceptively quick & smooth motor, DVD player, 20" rims, & adjustable HID/Xenon lights


Worst Features

better fuel economy (gas in CA is going up to $3 this summer-thanks Mr. Bush!) adjustable (forward and back) pedals, Recaro seats w/Alcantara suede & a "Nogaro Blue" color like in the Audi S4, quicker throttle response

Review

My wife gets the ragtop, I need to
choose a suitable 4 seater. I’m
fickle, like car style, performance,
toys and to seat 4 full 6ft adults for
long journeys. After much
deliberation between a Cayenne and the
FX, I went for the FX. I had to make
the choice between the 35 and 45. I
felt the 45 was more comfortable under
the hood, the 35 which was thrashy but
10k less. I chose a Beryllium 45 fully
loaded less the DVD entertainment.
I’ve driven it for 2k miles now and
love it, Overall I would highly
recommend it but recommend a longer
than normal test drive and do some
twists and turns.


Best Features

GPS, Overall luxury appointments, rear camera but most of all the performance and the proximity key


Worst Features

Window controls on the drivers door - too far forward The seat controls can dig in your leg when driving round left hand bends

Review

What can you say, styling is amazing,
performance unlike any other suv,
sound system out of this world.


Best Features

The sound system is amazing. Best Bose ever. Power is great. Love the keyless entry and intelligent cruise control. Rear view camera a must!


Worst Features

Compete with more powerful porsche cayenne engine, and would like to see selective suspension. Oh and a little more power assisting steering for parking.
