2009 Infiniti FX50: Needs a Big, Asphalt-Paved Yard
April 24, 2009
A couple months ago, I drove our 2009 Infiniti FX50 to Napa and was amazed by the ride quality: It was actually good, despite our FX's 265/45R21 104W Dunlop SP Sport 01 summer tires.
But then a couple nights ago, I drove the FX50 straight into the center of LA County on the 10 and 60 freeways. And now I have to agree with Kelly and Brian: It doesn't ride well at all over LA's grooved concrete slabs. You feel every expansion joint.
As a pure indulgence, I would enjoy using an Infiniti FX50 to tour California's back roads, though not as my sole car (obviously, I'd need something small, sharp and rear-drive for more serious cornering).
But for urban transit, the FX just won't do.
