2006 INFINITI FX35 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I wrote a review 2 years ago when I leased the car, but now after 2 years 30k miles later I've changed my tune... The FX is purely eye candy and has no uses as an SUV. It lacks in space (trunk area is half of any other SUV & passenger leg room is minimal) and my family of 4 barely fits in the car (can't even take road trips because its so small). The snow feature sounds like a tonka truck falling down stairs when it activates. Services cost more than my BMW M3 and parts are very expensive. If the weather gets below 32 degrees the car's performance and driver-feel becomes sub-par. After I hit 20k miles the car started to feel like it had 80k miles. I WOULD NOT PURCHASE THIS CAR AGAIN!

Best Features

Back-up camera, 20 inch upgraded wheels (don't go with the 18s). Infinitis do great when they're new and test well in magazine reviews, but after 20k miles the car hasn't met expectations...

Worst Features

More cost efficient services, cheaper parts, less plastics used on interior, more durable leather, non-reflective computer glass, better fuel economy, fix window squeals, HORRIBLE snow performance, interior vehicle components are becoming loose (rattle while driving), Height of trunk hard to use.
