2009 FX50S Issues

2009 Infiniti FX50 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)

Review

I purchased this vehicle with Sport and Tech pkgs in August of 2008 and was struck with its styling and V8 engine, 390HP. immediately, I noticed that when accelerating from a slow roll, there was a slight hesitation, then a jerk as the transmission engaged. I took the car in several times, but nothing could be found. The dealer finally told me that there was a tech bulletin on the issue, but no solution. So I still live with that. About a 2 yrs ago, my Bluetooth started dropping out, or not hooking up, a real irritation since I use my car for business. I took it in and was told that there is a problem with IPhone, Bluetooth and the car. I am NOT happy with the lack of resolutions!

I just love this car! It's ultra fast, powerful and super fun to cruise with. I owned multiple sports brands before, but the FX50S is something else, it's in a class of its own. I chose it over the X6 and never looked back ever since. I highly recommend this car.

Review

I purchased a 2008 Infiniti EX35 in May of last year. I "liked" the EX35, but never really "loved" it, and that always bugged me as it was not an inexpensive purchase. When I was in for my 1 yr 15,000 mile service I saw the FX50S on the lot in the same color interior combination as my EX35. I had no intention of trading up, but the car looked incredible. I threw what I thought was a ridiculous offer at the dealer, and two weeks later I was driving it off the lot. I could not be happier. The FX50S is EVERYTHING my EX35 was not, and I finally LOVE the vehicle I purchased. Technology, performance, comfort are all FAR above what I expected and for value, no other vehicle comes close.

I like the car's performance, look and quality, also it is an "economy" vehicle in a sense that it has the best bang for the buck. The ride is not harsh, but rather has a sporty firm feel to it, reminds me of a G. P.S. - It does not always win stoplight starts but just the feeling that you are taking on Porsches and such in a truck... priceless. The best part starts when you floor it at 60 mph.

Great Value

Review

Originally was looking at an Audi Q5. After adding all of the options on the Q5, the price made me start looking around. I was originally skeptical about the FX50 until a test drove one. It really is a beautiful car and I don't think pictures can really do it justice. The interior and technology is really top notch. Mileage is good for the power, but still quite a bit lower than the Q5, but what can I say... it may not be politically correct, but it is seductively fast. Incidentally, my dealer experience was exceptional and it only ended up costing a few thousand more than the Q5 I was quoted. Infiniti has a real winner with the FX50S.

Best sports car...

Review

I am a previous owner of 2 X5’s (4.6 & 4.8), and I traded in my 2008 BMW 335I for this FX50S. The FX50S as a package is by far more superior vehicle than anything I have driven. The X6 is ugly, and I don’t expect it to be any better than the X5. Having said that, there is no other cross-over that can compete with the FX50S in terms of design and performance, not even from Lexus.

09 - Infinti FX50

Review

Considered the BMW X5 (4.8i), Acura MDX and Mercedes Benz ML550 but selected the Infiniti FX50. Acura was a close second but FX50 performance was the deciding factor. ML550 and X5 were close in terms of the amenities but at a much higher price.

Totally Not Worth The Money Paid!

Review

Navigation system interface is VERY unattractive and not very user-friendly. Fuel economy is a foreign concept to FX50. The ride is bumpy and uncomfortable. There is no off-road capability. The worst aspect of ownership is having to deal with Infiniti. The service is very poor. They don't even provide loaner cars when needed. Infiniti Customer Service proved useless. At this point, I would go with Lexus. Supposedly their Customer Service is unparalleled. I strongly advise against Infiniti as a brand.

Review

What can I say, but wow what a vehicle. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to own this truck. I have owned luxury and sport brands in the past and this is the perfect blend of form and function. It gives me the space I need for the family but when I am driving it alone it is just amazing and fun. The number of features built into this truck is amazing. And while it is on the higher end of value it still tips the scale toward value for the money. Love the look and feel of this truck. If you get the chance to take a look at one I highly recommend it.

Does It Again!

Review

Once again Infiniti has outdone themselves! The styling in my opinion has been tweaked for the better! The new engine is very very REV happy! It pulls hard and strong! The new gauges and cockpit feels like youre sitting in a fighter plane! I love the manual paddle shifters. At first I didn't think i would like them but now I cant stop using them! The braking and handling is very very good even in the rain! Ive never felt so confident driving an suv at such high speeds before. This thing truly handles like a sports car! The navigation is the coolest nav system I have seen to date even compared to most aftermarket ones! Its that good! The all around camera view is priceless! Well done Infiniti!
