If you like "different", this is the vehicle for you. We've had "the beast" for year; acceleration and cornering are almost as good as my '99 Porsche 911. Smokes Cayenne S for $20,000 less and BMW X5 4.6 for $15,000 less.
Just pick up my FX45 and love it so far.!!..I drive a 00' Lincoln Navigator and was looking for something fun to drive ..yet not sacrificing going to a car. The FX45 handles superbly and hugs the corner as well as my brothers G35. It's exhaust system has a sweet sound that resembles the likes of a corvette. If your going to use the VPP, better get one fast before the dealers realize supply and demand.
We have put 101,000 miles on this car. We have not spent a single penny on repair. Not one. I am blown away. I ran it to Amarillo the other day, 90 MPH most of the way and pulled 19 MPG. This car is fabulous. It looks like a cat on steroids and handles like one, rain, snow or shine. Best car I have ever owned, and I have owned many.
After 210k miles it's time to say goodbye to a truly great vehicle. Lacking today's technology it retains its pure sex appeal and performance as a ground breaker in SUV Crossover design. My black on black beauty will be sorely missed. Not an easy drive out of the box but comfortable willing companion for the last 13 years. Stiff ride and sensitive throttle became a thrill. Always ready to kick ass and take names. I will miss this car.
The fx45 is an outstanding automobile that is very powerful and handles exceptionally well. The ride quality is firm but not uncomfortable or unstable. The build quality is exceptional and top quality materials used and the fx45 is rattle free. I have driven the X5, Lexus, and many others costing more and the fx45 blows them all away in performance, handling, and comfort. The V8 engine is amazing, powerful, smooth, and the exhaust note is a pleasure to hear. Awesome ride!
