Overall I really like this SUV. It handles well, corners well and has ample power. This is my second FX. I had the first one for almost 8 years and no issues. I've had the current one coming up on 5 years, and again no issues. It's a good size for me as I didn't want anything larger. It feels stable. Also, my husband who is 6'5" is very comfortable and has plenty of head room.
Im 2 weeks in to my 2011 FX35. I bout it with 80k miles and it still has a new car smell. Upon first impression, It simply carries the WOW factor for me. Ive driven the X5, X6, ML350, G500, Audi Q5, Q7 Lexus RX350 and Porsche Cayenne S and found THIS to be the car for me. Handling is a bit stiff, but youde expect that from a true "Sport" Utility. This car is big and Its heavy but youll never feel it from behind the wheel. The Tech Package is a great investment if you live in a cramped city with tight spots and double parkers. The performance, handling, and comfort is simply a pleasure. I look forward to my commute every morning as an excuse to drive. Overall impression, GET ONE!!! Theyre awsome!!! Simply put, a sports car on steroids. :)
Performance, comfort, reliability, design - all great. However, it is the luxury items that disappoint. First, the cooled seats are very hit or miss. Some days I can really feel the cooling, other days, in only a dri-fit shirt and shorts - can't feel a thing. The navigation - while it looks great, Infiniti has done a poor job in translating the data into the GPS system. I have had many addresses, some in major towns, others in minor, not show up. And what good is a GPS system when you already know where you are going? Finally, the Bluetooth is average, at best. I constantly get comments from people that they can barely hear or understand me. Love the ride, not so much the "luxury"
Performance, comfort and the stying
Cooled seats that cool, GPS that works and a Bluetooth system that is easier to use and has better quality (for the party I am speaking to)
Very fun to drive. Sometimes dull while driving at 50-60 mph. This car is good at driving fast, 70 or above. Acceleration is good. Braking is good. Cornering is nice. Infiniti should consider the cargo space. Not roomy. Lane departure warning is nice, but sometimes does not recognize the lane on the road. We can expect the improvement in the future. Rain sensing wiper, auto headlamps are very convenient, yet no day- light driving lamp.
Touch screen navi system. Very easy to input.
Bluetooth connection, audio too.
Cargo area. Organizing tool,
rails would be necessary. Cargo net is useless.
got the 2011 fx35 for 50 grand. The color is nice, interior is nice, the could have included wood trim, the wheels look small 18" of course, could've made 20", wanted me to waste 3000 more grand for them. The car has amazing pe rformance, plus it's very fun to drive. The 11 speaker Bose system is okay, it works great in the front, but i wonder if the rear back speakers aren't supposed to work loud. The seats are comfy. The passenger has on 8 way instead of 10. Passenger has no lumbar support whatsoever. There is no 6 cd changer. No rain sensing wipers. The ride is smooth, with nice exhaust noise from the back. I dont know if the car has active head restraints with adaptive front headlights.
ride, sound, style, price
make 10 way power seats with lmbr support for passenger too. make rain sensing wipers.
