2009 Infiniti FX50: Limited Rear Visibility
April 15, 2009
I really don't like the rear visibility of our 2009 Infiniti FX50. Not only is the rear window tiny and squinty due to thecar's sporty profile but the rear-seat headrest extends the blind spot created by the C-pillar making it difficult to see whomever may be in the next lane. Good thing there's that all-around camera for those times you want to back up.
If this were a sports car, it wouldn't bother me as much. But it's a big "crossover" that's not even all that sporty despite its intentions what with slow throttle response, heavy steering wheel and fat-suit bulkiness. So I can't see or maneuver quickly? Pass.
