2009 Infiniti FX50: Hauls a Big Blowup

June 15, 2009

On Friday I went hunting for the Flex keys only to find them in Brian Moody's right front pocket.

"Brian, I need the Flex for the weekend," I said trying not to look desperate. "Got something to haul."

"Sorry guy," Brian said tightly clutching the keys through the stonewashed denim of his Levi's. "I got a bunch of kids to haul around. Some event at my kid's school. Why don't you take the Infiniti?"

I had thought of that. But our long-term Infiniti FX50 is so small inside I figured the large print I had made to hang in my garage wouldn't fit. "Too small," I said. "The picture is 36x48."

"It'll fit," he said. "Just fold the seats."

So I reluctantly took the Infiniti. I folded the seats, which could not have been easier, and slid the large photo in with plenty of room to spare.

Now I admit that getting my blowup home isn't exactly a rigorous test of the FX, but lets face it, this is the kind of convenience that people buy SUVs and crossovers for. The photo would not have fit in the trunk of a car.

I wonder if it would have fit in the Fit. I should check.
