2009 Infiniti FX50 Long-Term Road Test

2009 Infiniti FX50: How Big Guns Roll

August 10, 2009


This weekend I drove our 2009 Infiniti FX50 AWD north to Sacramento. The super buff FX scored more looks and comments than anything else I've driven through California's central valley.

Stopping for a quick caffeine fix on I-5, I pulled into the parking lot alongside a Mercedes SL and Porsche Cayenne.

A 20-something guy ambled by and shrugged toward the FX50. "That's an awesome car," he said.

I nodded my head and mumbled, "Thanks." Then I stopped, considered the German company the Infiniti was presently keeping,and asked why he liked it best.

He rolled up his Green Day t-shirt sleeve while striking a body-builder pose and winked, "It's so muscular...like my own guns."

Uh, don't look for me behind the wheel of the FX50 again anytime soon.
