IF Lease, Yes, If Buy NO!
By david on


2003 INFINITI FX35 AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


My suspicion for all the lovers of this car is that they haven't hit 100 or 110k miles. Mine overheated. Changed every part in the cooling system(cap, thermostat, water pump, radiator) and now they are going to tear down the engine. Search online for "2003 FX35 overheating" and you will find many of us who needed new blocks or engines at $6 to $8k. this is not what I expected from a "reliable" car company like Nissan. Never again. However, it's a great car to drive and if you plan to turn it back in after 60k miles, Go for it! But don't keep it or buy used.

Best Features

Beautiful interior. Sexy Exterior, tight handling, nice engine growl, fun to drive like an SUV sports car.

Worst Features

Recall the 2003 engine!
