2010 Infiniti FX50 SUV 4dr SUV AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I have never enjoyed a car so much. I absolutely love this car. The styling, the handling, the pick and go, it's all incredible.


Favorite Features

I especially enjoy the "intelligent cruise control". It locks onto the car in front of you and keeps you a safe distance. If another car comes in between, it adjusts without you feeling a thing. It'll take you from 80 miles an hour to a dead stop without batting an eye if the situation calls for it. The thing drives better than I do.


Suggested Improvements

The only downside is that if you face roundabouts or 4-way stops on steep hills (like in San Francisco), the huge side mirrors (which are usually helpful) block part of the side view necessary to maneuver in such situations. Other than that, this car is an absolute dream.

Review

Love the car, but it needs some work. Just received a free dash replacement from hundreds of bubbles. The speedometer was recalled, no charge. The biggest complaint, the vehicle does not hold a track. It pulls left. It has a lane departure warning that uses a camera to see the dividing lines on the road. If you cross a line without signaling, it beeps. Nice feature, however it should not have been installed in lieu of fixing the tracking problem.


Favorite Features

The Bose sound system is amazing, with a large subwoofer under the rear deck. The optional oversized wheels adds a nice look and feel. The speedometer says 160-MPH. Have not had it that fast. The oversized optional wheels add significantly to the look and handling. The fold flat rear seats make for plenty of hauling space. The rear seats have enough room for the tall folks, whereas Mustang and Camaro are lacking in this area. The all-wheel drive will be handy in the snow, and the towing capacity is not bad for a jet ski or small ski boat.


Suggested Improvements

Merchants aligned it twice, and the Virginia Beach dealer twice, all within 100-miles, same problem, pulls to the left even when the road is sloped to the right as much as 1-foot in twelve feet. The Porsche, Audi, and VW looks similar to the FX. The FX-45 looks better, needs a recall.

Review

I had an '07 FX 35, I really love the unique body styling of the FX, because the FX doesn't look like anything else on the street. The '10 FX 5.0 V8 and the 390 horsepower is truly impressive and a thrill to drive, the SUV responds quickly and smoothly. The sport suspension control really makes the SUV drive like a sports car SUV and the growl from the V8 is also a head turner.


Favorite Features

V8 390 horse, sport suspension, sound system, sport seats, sport exhaust sound


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage.....LOL, and some kind of way to make the tires last longer

Review

I've owned the FX50 for a couple months. There are few on the street with most of the brand being FX35's. The car does demand respect in traffic as it seems those who know tend to shy away from it, this car is fast! Brings us to next point, this is not a truck, should not be considered an SUV/CUV either. I wanted a sports car, but had trouble giving up the SUV height and utility. That is EXACTLY what you get with this model, an SUV sports car. If you are looking for off road capability and storage, forget the FX. If getting a little (not a lot) of attention and V8 power is your thing you wont be disappointed. True competition is the Cayenne S and BMW X6 5.0. Both are $20k+ more


Favorite Features

Power Lux interior Gadgets (and I own the base model) Exterior styling


Suggested Improvements

Ride quality on 21" wheels Needs just a couple more inches rear legroom
