Bought CPO in 08 w 40K mi. I have always averaged 35-45K/yr. Usually switch cars every 6 mos-2 yrs. Have had difficulty finding cause with this car. Squeaking brakes have been a constant issue. My cd changer skips when it's cold $500 for rebuild and xm loses signal when it's hot. Those are the only problems I have had. Period. I've owned ford gm toy niss Honda Audi BMW vw & Porsche, the FX has been the most pleasant overall. Performance & handing are great. Service beats all others. Nav is better than 07 Audi or BMW. Also ave mixed 21 mpg and 25+ at 80mph.

I never dreamed I would be driving this type of vehicle but have come away impressed with most everything about it. Never like the looks but have grown to appreciate it...I don't ever get tired of looking at it. What's impressive is how well it's put together and how smooth it is. The driveline is unbelievable and the sound of the engine is simply awesome. The suspension soaks up the bumps nicely and you always feel in control. It handles like it's on rails and cannot be appreciated until you get into another vehicle. It's for people that want sports car like handling without the penalty. Has plenty of room but limited height due to it's shape. Overall, a great vehicle!

IF Lease, Yes, If Buy NO!

My suspicion for all the lovers of this car is that they haven't hit 100 or 110k miles. Mine overheated. Changed every part in the cooling system(cap, thermostat, water pump, radiator) and now they are going to tear down the engine. Search online for "2003 FX35 overheating" and you will find many of us who needed new blocks or engines at $6 to $8k. this is not what I expected from a "reliable" car company like Nissan. Never again. However, it's a great car to drive and if you plan to turn it back in after 60k miles, Go for it! But don't keep it or buy used.

Bought the car new in southern California. After five years of the door lock fails intermittently depending on ambient temperature. Leather seat splits at the most unusual area. Fuel gauge does not function properly and the dash board starts to blister and bubble. Not to mention the power rear view mirror does not readjust properly at times. My Honda Accord of 10 years never had these problems! I applaud infiniti for fixing some of the problem at no cost, but still it is a nuisance. The infiniti experience is a bit tainted based on these events.

It was love at first sight for me on the Infinity FX35, this car really does look much later than it is. It is six years old and without any problem. It has been on Reno/Tahoe/NoCa/Interstate 80 in the snow blizzards lots of times. And you are safe in this car, my Mother has used it for mountain/snowy trips, she fell in love with it. This would be the safest- fastest car for your loved ones. And the GPS got me all around metro San Antonio and I get lost easily. When this reaches 200,000 another one will be purchased. And I have not forgot just how gorgeous this car is...and with inner beauty.

Purchased used Sport edition with 26K miles and have overall been very satisfied at 53K. More or less a full-size wagon, it is fun to drive with decent cargo space. Was a little concerned since 2003 was first model year, but only issue has been one fuse replacement that was not really expensive to address. CD player has become jammed, but mostly use ipod and satellite radio. Have only used regular fuel, but acceleration has been solid. Although now seven years old, exterior styling is timeless (which I think is better than 09 body style change). Would definitely recommend to anyone dealing with dual child seats and does not want or need huge SUV or minivan.

It was "love at first sight". Almost as soon as I saw the FX35 I had to have it. I love the design inside and out. My ownership experience has been exceptional. I purchased it new in 2003 and haven't regretted it one bit. Handles outstandingly well whether the road is wet or dry. Scores very high on crash tests. Fuel economy is good. Fun to drive. Very reliable and comfortable. After owning it 5 years I'm tellin' it like it is: The FX35 is a quality vehicle.

Liked it so much I'm getting another

I have been driving my 2003 FX35 for four years and have loved it so much that I'm getting a 2008. It has always been a head turner, and is so comfortable, safe, and fun to drive that I can justify the poor gas mileage and skimpy cargo space. I have gotten a roof cargo carrier for trips. The 2008 has some great new features, backup camera, keyless entry, bluetooth. It handles great in bad weather, is solid as a rock(I have never hydroplaned) and my bad back never hurts, even on long trips because of the extremely comfortable and heated seats! I don't want to drive anything else!!

I bought my FX35 brand new in May '03 and it currently has only 58000 miles on it. With the car came a number of recalls, more trips to the dealer than I can count, and recently a $2000 rack and pinion steering failure and repair (no longer under warranty!). While the service rep was good, I know it's just the start of more and bigger problems to come. My only alternative is to get rid of the car. I don't intend to sound dramatic about this, but I will never purchase another Infiniti. My overall experience was unexpectedly poor and my experpience with the Infiniti Consumer Affairs office was even worse.

Couldn't be happier. Leased it for 3 years and couldn't part with it so I bought it off the lease. Held its value nicely - 65% of sticker after 3 years (73% of what I paid). Tightest vehicle I've ever owned - including a BMW 3 series sedan - which is the benchmark for tightness. It's the best of both worlds - perfomance and utility.

I'd buy it again

We purchased this vehicle new in 2003 and have been extremely satisified with its performance and handling. It surprised us that we could get great performance and handling from a vehicle of this size and still get a constant 20 mpg, on average, while cruising at 80 mph. We're on our 3rd set of tires and have 81k mi on the car and have switched from the stock 20" Goodyear RSAs to BFG KDWs. An excellent choice as they handle better and hold the road better when cornering. I find the FX35 fun to handle on winding mountain roads and use the manual mode to save the brakes. We put new rear brakes on at 75k and will put new fronts on at 82500k. Virtually no maint other than oil changes.

Bought a base 2003 FX35 on the lot that had been overlooked, and I'm so glad it had. Cloth interior, no sunroof, rarer than rare! I wish they still made FXes in cloth, but the 07 interiors are beautiful. This car is fun, safe, and stylish. RWD platform with the powerful Nissan VQ35DE motor allow for brisk pickup and great handling dynamics. This setup is also highly tunable (do a search for Stillen supercharged FX35). Even though it's RWD, with Blizzaks it works great in the snow. Reliability and owner satisfaction have been very high - I have an 07 G35S sedan on order!

I have owned an FX35 for four years now. I love this car. in the four years I have had no problems with it. I just add gas and change the oil regularly. it has been incredibly reliable. It is a great car for long road trips. It is extremely comfortable and it has a killer sound system (I got the upgrade to the 11- speaker system). I have three dogs and we go hiking very often. I put them easily in the back of the car. there's a ton of room when you fold down the seats flat. I highly recommend this car to anyone.

This car continues to perform as well as when I first purchased it, and it was superb then. I have the 18 inch wheels and RWD. At 6'4" and 250 lbs, the space and comfort has been great. I do alot of highway driving and have averaged 23 mpg since it was purchased. Have followed the regularly scheduled maintenance at dealer and the car just keeps on going. I also get it detailed every two weeks and the finish still looks new. Driving any distance is very comfortable in this car. The dealer pays attention to all the details and has always provided great service. I'll get another FX35 someday, but this one is still going strong.

Take to the hills and curves of some of the Rocky Mountains highest passes ( most are 12,000 ft.) and feel the acceleration, the braking, and best, how it bites and holds in those 90-180 degree curves--the stability is awesome, inspiring, just fantastic fun!!!

Bought it used in 2004 and it has been a true joy since. It is very spacious for four passengers. Not for five. Much sportier design than other crossovers, which seemed too much like minivans (the Mercedes) or station wagons (Ford, Audi). Gas consumption could be better, but I am averaging 18.8 with roughly 20% highway use and 80% city use. However, it is worth the extra power, especially with high octane gas. On a smooth open road (highway), it is an absolute dream. It is especially good for skiing (skis on the roof rack, passengers toasty on the inside, most comfortable ride I've taken to the mountains ever). Bought one for my dad, too!

The FX 35 gives you the thrill of a sports car with the carrying capacity of a small SUV. The FX is very reliable, it hasn't been in the shop except for scheduled maintance. The sport's suspension is very tight with no roll common to most SUVs.

This is the most enjoyable car that I have owned or leased. Handling is great and it has sufficient guts to move right along. (It would more fun it were offered with a stick) There have been no maintenance issues at all, the dealership is wonderful to deal with with loaner cars readily available when I have service which has always been minimal. The DVD player is great for my granchildren (especially with the headphones). I would recommend this vehicle to anyone. This auto is leased and my daughter's boyfriend is buying it at the end of the lease next month. I am leasing a new FX35 because I enjoyed ths one so much.

My FX35 has more rattles than any vehicle I have owned (which include Acura, Audi, Volvo, Honda etc). Every week there is something annoying - rattle of the week. Problems with driver seat which the dealer can't fix. Problem with alignment of the headlight which dealer can't fix. Busted stereo and CD player. Problem with rear-seat belt. When I take the car through a carwash, water leaks in. The paint on this vehicle is paper thin - slightest nick and it chips off and rusts in less than few weeks. The vehicle is a pain to maintain. Repeated brake problems. Very stiff ride. The build and mechanical quality is bad enough that this will be my last Infinity. And city fuel economy of 16mp!!

Qualitywise, this is the best car I've ever owned. Three years old and not a bit of trouble or need to see the dealer: it;s bulletproof. My only beef concerns the poorly placed seat controls for driver and passenger (on the horizontal seating surface)which digs into your thigh. It has been repositioned on the 2006. Fun to drive,corners like it's on rails, and I got 21 mpg in 2 hours at 65 mph today.

Bought my FX35 new in -03... had the first one in town. Not a day went by in the first 3-4 months that someone didn't stop me to ask about or comment what a cool car... now for the bad stuff, of which there's very little. -Ride is so stiff with 20" wheels that it'll make yout teeth chatter -squeak in the driver's door can't be fixed by dealer, they only made it worse. In all, great car, great looks, great performance, so-so gas mileage of 16/20. I love driving it, except when my bladder's full, due to the violent ride characteristics. But if you can handle that, you'll love the car and the attention you get.... which has been more than my buddie's Porsche Cayenne S- he's upset!

I no longer have any car-envy. I would rather drive this car than any car selling for less than $70k. It oozes style; it has bells and whistles that I never knew existed - but now can't live without (keyless entry/ignition); it's a hoot to drive - especially in corners; and is very comfortable. The ride is harsh, but what do you expect from the sport package? In my opinion chrome trim looks better than more expensive wood in other cars. The center arm rest in the 2003 model seems cheap, flimsy and out of place in such a nice car. Also, the similar Murano has more trays and cubbies for your gear. I almost went with the Murano for that reason but stuch with the FX for the style points.

We bought our FX after our Lincoln Town car burned up our house. We didn't know what we wanted, but were looking at the carmax lot. As we were about done, having not found anything we were interested in, I looked at the suv's and saw this FX. I had never seen one before and we thought it looked interesting. We test drove it and fell in love with it. This is a great vehicle. Lots of people inquire about it. We get lots of looks. It is a very unique vehicle and I enjoy it immensely. Drives great on the snow and ice as well!

I hate buying a new car. Dreading the idea of it, I had come to Infiniti to look at the G35 sedab when someone drove by with the FX35! I literally followed the car not just with my eyes; my whole body turned as it passed by. It was love at first sight. i never get this way about cars. It still excites me 3 years later when I see it parked on the street or one drives past. The design is daring...a bold departure from other vehicles of it's type.

Wow, after owning both sedans and sport utes (Grand Cherokee, Montero SR, Expedition, ML430, and Murano), I have finally found a vehicle that delivers on all counts. I almost found it with the Murano (great looks, mpg, handling), but the CVT did not give me the performance I was looking for. It was almost too smooth. I picked up an AWD FX35 right after that. My driving is a mix of daily commute, kid hauling, and weekend work. In addition, we had a cabin in the mountains that we were decorating. I added a hitch to the FX for bike, but it pulled a loaded trailer up gravel hills of the mountain with no issue at all. I also installed the XM radio (love how Infiniti lets you choose).

I have owned my FX for over 2 years. It has been a pleasent experience for the most part. I just had my first negative reaction on Dec. 10 2005 I went to visit a friend in a snow storm, he had a very steep driveway. My Infiniti got half way up his drive and then slipped all the way down backwards. (no injuries) He has a Range Rover. He came down his driveway and picked us up in his RR, went up the hill, no problem. The interior is also a bit tight. (not to much headroom) My wife claims it drives like a truck. Overall opinion, I like my FX but I must say, I will have to check out the competion for my next vehicle.

I was not really in the market for a new vehicle but as I started seeing gas going up, I knew my 2004 Tahoe would never stop being thirsty. I got out with 2 days to spare! In all fairness, you really cannot compare the FX and the Tahoe. Each has it's benefits and shortfalls. However, if you are looking for sports car performace along with the versatility of an SUV give strong consideration to the FX. Fit and finish are A-1, on this vehicle as well as perfomance and handling. I am thrilled with this vehicle and enjoy it more each day. It is the first time in a number of years I have looked forward to driving somewhere.

fx35 truck year 2003 is my favorite

This is a great car with BAD BRAKES. I had to have a brake job at 20K!!!! $300. I've talked with 4 other owners that have had similar problems. The dealer had the nerve to say I was 'riding' the brakes. Inifiti customer service says it's normal wear and tear and thety won't do anything. Infiniti, if you're listening I want my brake job paid for.

Been a sports car person all my life and I went in for the G-35 Coupe and came out with a RWD FX-35 with everything but the Tech-pack for less that the G-35. This car rides sweet! I have pushed it to all its limits and it has never failed to impress!! You completely forget that you are in an SUV as this car truly thinks it is a sports sedan on steriods. It holds up to Infiniti's claim of Bionic Cheetah. My only regret is that I didn't get the FX-45.

High Points: Great handling, highly versatile, fun to drive, unique styling and exhaust note. Low Points: electronic bugs (Sunroof opens/closes on its own, automatic steering wheel tilt/seat slide when you insert the key in ignition doesn't work occasionally), poor gas mileage, lots of rattle inside. But I forget about these when I open 'er up and go head-to-head with sports cars.

My initial attraction to this car was for the design characteristics...but since I've owned it..I have come to appreciate the great usability. The FX has everything that I've looked for in a car. ..Tight ride, great suspension, comfortable interior appointments, sports car look and feel.. and cargo space. This package neatly ties all of it into one.

It's GRRrrrrreat!

This is one of my most fun cars to date (and there have been many). I am a big "design" afficianado, and the FX 35 does NOT disappoint. First drive might fool you. Driving every day is a delight.

This SUV has a Porsche Boxter-like exhaust note and corners absolutely flatly. 100 to 110 miles per hour feels like 70 in this vehicle. Very, very fun to drive.

Like owning a concept vehicle

This vehicle is amazing. I purchased with the Technology package - Navigation + Intelligent Key and Smart Cruise Control. Personally I think the navigation is a little clunky due to having to use a joystick as opposed to a touch screen. The Keyless Ignition and Laser Assisted cruise control are very cool. Mechanically the car performs amazingly. The only thing is I wish it were a little higher/more SUV like - just for the driving position. I was also a little hesitant on the styling - but it's growing on me more and more. It's one of those vehicles that you will over time keep finding more things that were well thought through by the designers.

Comparison to Murano

I compared the Nissan Murano and the Infiniti FX. The Murano is front-wheel drive with significant torque steer, a tranversely mounted engine, and a CVT. The FX Std is rear-wheel drive with a longitudinally mounted engine, and automatic with auxillary 5-gear manual. The CVT was smooth but the FX's automatic was too. The Murano provides manual Sport and Low gears and the FX has a 5-gear manual. The FX handles like a sports car while the Murano wallows on curves. Inside, the FX dash is cleaner than the confusing array in the Murano.

I have had my FX for a year now. Love everything about it, except for how it drives with the optional 20 inch wheels. The ride is too hard for these big rims, and when you hit even the slightest pot hole it feels like you are going into the Grand Canyone. Other than that love the crossover!

My wife and I purchased this SUV about two weeks ago and we love everything about it. We got the Tech and Touring packages; which bring among other things, the navigation system, keyless entry, rear-view camera & intelligent cruise control. All the technology is great, but what really puts a smile on our faces is the engine/exhaust growl. The FX is an SUV like no other. The fit and finish and technology amenities are first class for an SUV in this price range. This is an exciting machine to drive, feel and listen to.

I had a Mercedes 320 that had many problems. It was in the shop over 25 times over a 5 year period. This Infiniti has not been in the shop once. The brakes squeek and the dealer said they will fix them when I bring it in for service. So far, the perfect car.

Its a bargain!

The ride is sports car tight and handles like one also. Car compares to BMW's handles like a sports sedan. The seats need improvement BMW Chevy Dodge all beat the comfort level of FX-35 seats. 18" stock tires are lousy i upgraded to BFG G-Force KDW NT's better ride and handling don't feel the bumps on the road like i did before. check out 1010tires website for tire comparisons. XM stereo radio is great!.. when it works.. if you lose a signal you can't load again until you shut off the ignition. Blind spots, all over but a minor pain the side mirrors would be an easy fix for infinity just lower them an inch. Enjoy this lil hot rod.
