This is my second FX. Bought '04 and put on 120,000 mi and then purchased '06 with 11,000 that now has 96,000 miles on it. Combined I have over 200,000 miles experience with FX and I'm thinking about 09 FX 50 now. I have had zero mechanical issues in either FX. Very reliable. I spend 4 hours/day in car, and this is my rolling office. Sports car, luxury sedan, and some utility makes it perfect for me. I have black/brick, all options/ chromes, and can't find another car I'd rather drive. I have much experience buying tires and I recommend 20" Yokahamas or Nittos. from Discount Tire. They improve ride. Combining fun to drive, reliability, styling and wow factor - can't lose with FX
Although I'm 50, this SUV makes me feel 10 years younger every time I drive it. The handling is supreme Ė and Iíve owned both a Shelby GT350 and a Porsche, so I know a little about handling. Yes, the ride is a bit rough. And the exhaust makes a little more noise than I would prefer. But hey, this is no Soccer-Momís SUV. If you want that, get a (yawn) Lexus and be done with it. This is a driverís SUV that can fit easily into a small space. When the rear seats go down itís got plenty of room, and it can tow up to 3500 lb. So for me, itís just the perfect SUV. And to top that off, I can get 25 mpg on the freeway should I choose.
I am the proud owner of a 2006 FX35 that is in love with his vehicle. I love the exterior design and the interior color (brick)as well as the "cockpit" feeling. The manner in which this vehicle performs and rides is compearable to expensive sport sedans. After 15 years of driving Corvettes I was looking for a more confortable ride without giving up too much performance and the FX35 is exacly what I was looking for. I am disappointed with the sound system. I was hoping that 11 speakers, 300 watts and the Bose name would give me a better sound however, there is a lack of "panoramic" feel that is the standard of 5.1(surround) systems also, the subwoofers do not have the expected "punch".
I loved the styling and there doesn't seem to be many on the road so it is quite unique. Drove Lexus, Mercedes, Acura, and Lincoln. Infiniti gives you the most tech features for the money with AWD. I've owned Nissan's before and they've always been reliable. Nav is awesome, bose system is the best I've owned yet, seats are very comfortable on longer trips, snow mode is perfect in deep snow, brick (orange) interior is simply amazing, lots of power, plenty of room and storage, and very comfortable ride. Have a good friend with X3 and another with Denali. This blows those away. Down sides: Barely getting 16 MPG and calls for premium fuel, poor rear visibility, and complicated bluetooth phone.
I have owned my FX35 for approx 6 months. It is cool as h*ll. Mp3 not great but it makes up for it in cool points. Bluetooth has a suck factor. Lane departure. ...thank God you can shut that off. Assisted cruise sometimes is a pain but if you hold the on/off button on the cruise down for 1.5 seconds it will turn into regular cruise control. Great sound system. Excellent in snow. Great vehicle folks.
