My three last vehicles were BMWs (last one a M3 conv.) and the fit and finish in this FX35 is as good if not better. The V6 feels like a V8. The ride and performance is awesome (I have the Sport package). I absolutely love the seats and Bluetooth (Handsfree package). My only grip is the dashboard cannot be dimmed without the lights being on- I was really digging for this one. The warranty is also the best in the luxury segment. I love this vehicle. The German comparable is at least $10K more and not worth it. Goodbye BMW!
Smooth and quick V6, handling and seats. Lets not forget the good looks.
dash lights need dimming in daylight and a fatter steering wheel. Pretty picky things given the array of features and performance.
Bought it for the safety,handling, build quality and reliability & got all four. Handles better than most vehicles on the road with the standard suspension. Steering is quick, firm and accurate, great braking. Solid ride. Back-up camera makes parking a snap. I advise against the sport package unless you drive only on billiard table smooth roads (and who of us does). Even the standard suspension can be harsh on bumpy roads. We actually fit three across in the back seat (2 kid seats and my mother-in- law) on long trips. Bose stereo is very good, and the seats are supremely comfortable. It's a station wagon with athletic/sporty handling (it ain't no SUV) and that's a good thing!
Handling, braking, steering, safety features, reliability. As such it is a better wagon choice than anything made by Subaru, Volvo, BMW or Mercedes.
A 6th gear for highway fuel econ improvement, or a lower rpm 5th gear to lower rpms for fuel economy. Widen the vehicle by an inch or two. Lengthen the cargo area by a few inches. A few more horsepower for its weight would be nice (like the new 306 hp in the 07 G35). Nothing else.
This is a 4WD infinity fx35. You need to own a gas station to ride the car, the fuel mileage in the city is ridicules. I drive in the to the city every day and the BEST this car can do is 13.8 m/g. If you want to make 21 mi/g on the highway you need to play with the gas pedal and do not go more then 60 mi/h. It is very hard ride it is like a sports car. The location of the buttons is very uncountable to reach them. The sound system is ok, the could put a subwoofer to improve the sound. Very little room on the back seat, 2 adults hardly fit there. Trunk space very small. I lease the car so I will give it back in a year and will not take it any more.
Interior and exterior very cool design
More room, relocate the widows buttons, they are very hard to reach. Needs gas usage improvement, it is like a Hammer
I just got mine and although it is fun to drive, the blue tooth is lousy, does not have self locking doors and find the seats uncomfortable. But other than that it is a blast to drive and when you step on the gas it is there for you.
Power from engine
Self locking doors and more comfortable seats. I also would love to see some wood coming from an expensive car that is trying to fight the luxury market.
