2009 Infiniti FX50: 15,000 Mile Service
June 26, 2009
We just picked up the FX50 from Cerritos Infiniti - total cost $215.60. Not Cheap. Here's how it breaks down: $120 for labor, $87.51 for parts and of course California sales tax. This service interval required replacing the cabin air filter and that part alone cost us about $67.00. We also found out that low brake fluid was causing the VDC and RAS lights to come on randomly. Our advisor says that the problem should be fixed. Also, a recall fix was made to the power adjustable steering column - no charge of course. To the credit of Cerritos Infiniti, they told us about the recall and not the other way around.
Finally, we learned that our brake pads are at 50% meaning we've used up half their life in just 15,000 miles. Cerritos Infiniti gave us prompt, efficient service but for the money we'd expect nothing less.
