I have owned my FX35 for approx 6 months. It is cool as h*ll. Mp3 not great but it makes up for it in cool points. Bluetooth has a suck factor. Lane departure. ...thank God you can shut that off. Assisted cruise sometimes is a pain but if you hold the on/off button on the cruise down for 1.5 seconds it will turn into regular cruise control. Great sound system. Excellent in snow. Great vehicle folks.

Not sure if i would repurchase

Having owned a previous Nissan product (1993) Maxima that I had for 10 years (best car i ever had), I ended up buying a 2006 FX 35. Always loved the styling and after driving it (and competitors) decided on the FX. I still love the driving experience, but not necessarily the ownership experience. Have had multiple issues with having to return the vehicle to the dealership (which I admit, Infinity of Coconut Creek has been great) for many issues related to trim/cosmetics, I have also had to have 3 mechanical issues with the car that if I had to pay for out of pocket would have been very expensive if not covered under warranty. I do not think I would purchase another Nissan/Infinity product

This is my second FX. Bought '04 and put on 120,000 mi and then purchased '06 with 11,000 that now has 96,000 miles on it. Combined I have over 200,000 miles experience with FX and I'm thinking about 09 FX 50 now. I have had zero mechanical issues in either FX. Very reliable. I spend 4 hours/day in car, and this is my rolling office. Sports car, luxury sedan, and some utility makes it perfect for me. I have black/brick, all options/ chromes, and can't find another car I'd rather drive. I have much experience buying tires and I recommend 20" Yokahamas or Nittos. from Discount Tire. They improve ride. Combining fun to drive, reliability, styling and wow factor - can't lose with FX

I loved the styling and there doesn't seem to be many on the road so it is quite unique. Drove Lexus, Mercedes, Acura, and Lincoln. Infiniti gives you the most tech features for the money with AWD. I've owned Nissan's before and they've always been reliable. Nav is awesome, bose system is the best I've owned yet, seats are very comfortable on longer trips, snow mode is perfect in deep snow, brick (orange) interior is simply amazing, lots of power, plenty of room and storage, and very comfortable ride. Have a good friend with X3 and another with Denali. This blows those away. Down sides: Barely getting 16 MPG and calls for premium fuel, poor rear visibility, and complicated bluetooth phone.

I am a realtor and have loved having this car to show clients in. There is plenty of room in the back seat and for people with long legs. It has a really sporty sound, and handles well. Doesn't make super tight turns though and I feel like sometimes it is hard to see over the hood because of how round it is. The other weird thing is the location of the gas level indicator. It is poorly placed and was right in the line of the steering wheel. I have ran out of gas two times since owning this car purely because I didn't see the red light go on or realize how low I was on gas. Not a lot of storage room either. But all in all, a fantastic car I would recommend.

I used to have the Infiniti QX4 and the G35. When the FX35 released it was the best of both worlds- the power of a sports car and the room within an SUV. I have been very happy with this purchase. A lot of other brands have tried to copy its slick design, but failed in my opinion. Still the best looking cross over.

Bluetooth handsfree does not work the way it should be. Its voice recognition system won't recognize your voice right. It will work as a simple handsfree. Still, mic quality is horrid. Folding chair catches the seatbelt and won't fold the way it should be. Vent stinks even after changing filter. But with all that in mind, I don't find anything bad with this car. Handling is superb compare to other suvs. Exhaust has low growls that entertains and never annoys. Steering stiffness is perfect as well as the ride quality. Power is always there in wide rpm range. In overall, it is a great buy and there's no others quite like this. Unless you're buying a x5 of course.

I wrote a review 2 years ago when I leased the car, but now after 2 years 30k miles later I've changed my tune... The FX is purely eye candy and has no uses as an SUV. It lacks in space (trunk area is half of any other SUV & passenger leg room is minimal) and my family of 4 barely fits in the car (can't even take road trips because its so small). The snow feature sounds like a tonka truck falling down stairs when it activates. Services cost more than my BMW M3 and parts are very expensive. If the weather gets below 32 degrees the car's performance and driver-feel becomes sub-par. After I hit 20k miles the car started to feel like it had 80k miles. I WOULD NOT PURCHASE THIS CAR AGAIN!

Would definitely buy again!

Had the FX 35 one year now and love it. Handling and performance like a sports car (previous car was BMW M3) with utility of SUV. Gas mileage is 19-21 mph. Only downside is the hard ride, which I like and part of the sport suspension, but not for some expecting soft SUV-type ride. This is a sports car with unbelievable utility. Don't forget its great looks and comfortable front seats.

Good power and features. Love the back up camera. Controls are very easy to use. The rear seat belts are very hard to buckle. They are jammed down practically down into the seats. It took my 6 year old months to be able to do it. It was even hard for me to do sometimes. Also, the a/c smells moldy. Only have 8K miles on the car. Headlights don't shine out far enough (very wide, but not far), adjusting didn't help. Not great gas mileage. Window squeaks when rolling down, complained twice already, still squeaks. Good car but not sure I'd buy again.

I love the look of this vehicle. It handles well and the engine is well suited for this type of truck. The interior is attractice and the car feels solid as a higher end one should. I bought this car based on the good reliability and performance reviews. Unfortunately, I got a lemon. Fine, it can happen to any manufacturer. However, Infiniti ( Nissan)really doesn't care about the customer once the sale is made. In the first 5000 miles, both the frontend and transmission had to be replaced. It took seven months before the work was performed. These were the major issues but there were many more, all manufacturing defects.Infiniti doesn't take responsibility for collateral damage caused by its

I bought an FX 35, 2006. Drove great for 6 months and then had an issue with the rack and pinion. Since then there has been a shake in the car around 60 to 70 miles. The steering wheel shakes consistently and the dealership cannot seem to fix it. I have taken it in four times and they keep saying it is normal for the car. Normal for 40K car to shake at 60 miles an hours. Very disappointed in Infiniti. Will never buy an Infiniti again.

We have driven the car for about 7 months and we absolutely love it. Performance is outstanding and it is great fun to drive. Interior and exterior design and quality beats anything else we have seen. We have three kids and can fit three child/booster seats in the back. Cargo space was much larger than expected!! It is wider than the competition and the FX is more practical to load. Great combination of design and performance. With AWD and the powerfull engine, gas mileage (16-21 mpg) is a bit low. It drives like a sport car but is still extremely comfortable. Most other SUVs feel like trucks but not this one. Great control on the road.

After 25 years of driving German sedans, this is our first Japanese made vehicle. Quite impressive. We did not want a truck for our first SUV, and the FX35 is a nice compromise between a sedan and a full sized truck based SUV. Drives much like a sports car on steroids. Powerful, responsive, and fun to drive, yet gets good gas mileage. Smooth transmission, too, as it never has any abrupt shifts. Rides like a nice sedan, but handles deep snow with aplomb. Not as roomy as most SUVs as this vehicle is not meant for hauling a lot of "stuff." Instead, it holds four people in excellent comfort, and handles like a car. We also love the tv camera for backing up. Great visibility all around.

We traded in our Mercedes ML for my wife for the FX and I drive a BMW M Coupe. At first I didn't think it was worth the money considering the rear passenger leg room is sparse, it has the least amount of cargo room in its class, I had to buy a roof rack for our snow boards, its difficult getting our small kids in and out of the rear, and there is A LOT of plastic in the interior. But 15k miles later I love the way it handles (just like a V8), great exhaust note, and superb handling (easy transition to go from my M to this car). As it compares to other SUVs in terms of practicality it isn't a smart choice, but its the best for overall performance and incredible aesthetics.

Purchased the 2006 FX and it's been a pleasure to drive. Love the growl of the exhaust, the acceleration is great and you can't beat the exterior styling. We were looking for a SUV that didn't drive and look like a box on wheels and the FX35 has easily surpassed our expectations. Test drove the Lexus RX330, the Mazda CX7, the Volkswagen Touareg, and the Nissan Murano. The FX had the best balance of performance, price, and design. Extremely pleased with the purchase no regrets

I Picked up my '06 FX yesterday! This is my second FX! I put 52,000 miles on my '03 FX and loved it so much I bought another. With many improvements over the '03 I'm looking forward to several years in this one. I didn't buy the sports package this time. The ride with the standard 18" tires is less harsh yet it still handles excellent. I enjoy the hands free package and blue tooth. So far I haven't had any complaints about my voice not coming across well on the phone. The interior comfort is one of the key features that led me to buy another FX, as well as it's head turning exterior. My '03's mileage was consistently 19-20 around town. I expect the '06 to be similar.

My three last vehicles were BMWs (last one a M3 conv.) and the fit and finish in this FX35 is as good if not better. The V6 feels like a V8. The ride and performance is awesome (I have the Sport package). I absolutely love the seats and Bluetooth (Handsfree package). My only grip is the dashboard cannot be dimmed without the lights being on- I was really digging for this one. The warranty is also the best in the luxury segment. I love this vehicle. The German comparable is at least $10K more and not worth it. Goodbye BMW!

Bought it for the safety,handling, build quality and reliability & got all four. Handles better than most vehicles on the road with the standard suspension. Steering is quick, firm and accurate, great braking. Solid ride. Back-up camera makes parking a snap. I advise against the sport package unless you drive only on billiard table smooth roads (and who of us does). Even the standard suspension can be harsh on bumpy roads. We actually fit three across in the back seat (2 kid seats and my mother-in- law) on long trips. Bose stereo is very good, and the seats are supremely comfortable. It's a station wagon with athletic/sporty handling (it ain't no SUV) and that's a good thing!

This is a 4WD infinity fx35. You need to own a gas station to ride the car, the fuel mileage in the city is ridicules. I drive in the to the city every day and the BEST this car can do is 13.8 m/g. If you want to make 21 mi/g on the highway you need to play with the gas pedal and do not go more then 60 mi/h. It is very hard ride it is like a sports car. The location of the buttons is very uncountable to reach them. The sound system is ok, the could put a subwoofer to improve the sound. Very little room on the back seat, 2 adults hardly fit there. Trunk space very small. I lease the car so I will give it back in a year and will not take it any more.

I turned in my G35 sport coupe (shed a tear) and got my FX35 because I needed more space...but I didn't want to give up the feel that Infiniti builds into its vehicles. The FX has all the power and feel of a sports car..packed into the shell of a crossover SUV. Driving the FX does NOT feel like you're driving a truck..as it did when I test drove the Pilot, Rav4, Forrester.. Granted, the FX is in a whole different class..but I love the solid feel of this vehicle. I got the space I needed..and the unique styling, performance, and reliability that I felt only Infiniti knew how to combine.

Although I'm 50, this SUV makes me feel 10 years younger every time I drive it. The handling is supreme – and I’ve owned both a Shelby GT350 and a Porsche, so I know a little about handling. Yes, the ride is a bit rough. And the exhaust makes a little more noise than I would prefer. But hey, this is no Soccer-Mom’s SUV. If you want that, get a (yawn) Lexus and be done with it. This is a driver’s SUV that can fit easily into a small space. When the rear seats go down it’s got plenty of room, and it can tow up to 3500 lb. So for me, it’s just the perfect SUV. And to top that off, I can get 25 mpg on the freeway should I choose.

I've owned my FX for two months now and I'm still having a difficult time getting used to the ride. The ride is very rigid and the steering wheel vibrates when hitting a bump. Maybe this car should be labeled as a sports car instead of crossover SUV. If you're looking for a car ride you might want to consider another vehicle.

I am the proud owner of a 2006 FX35 that is in love with his vehicle. I love the exterior design and the interior color (brick)as well as the "cockpit" feeling. The manner in which this vehicle performs and rides is compearable to expensive sport sedans. After 15 years of driving Corvettes I was looking for a more confortable ride without giving up too much performance and the FX35 is exacly what I was looking for. I am disappointed with the sound system. I was hoping that 11 speakers, 300 watts and the Bose name would give me a better sound however, there is a lack of "panoramic" feel that is the standard of 5.1(surround) systems also, the subwoofers do not have the expected "punch".

I drove a 2003 Nissan Murano, and thought the FX would be a step-up. Ride, styling, handling,I think the FX is better. But, some features and comforts, the Infiniti is not as good as what should be it's lesser sibling. The back seat is much smaller and less roomy. For the driver comforts - the window controls are poorly placed, the HVAC controls are not as easy to use as the Murano, and there are none of the great storage compartments of the Nissan. Two real disappointments: a fresh air vent that routes through the engine compartment in a way that blows hot air regardless of outside temp, and a built in bluetooth handsfree phone microphone that is horrible-all callers complain!

Purchased this a week ago - an excellent vechicle. It is a driver's car - quite, comfortable and fast. Mileage is reasonable (about the same as my Pathfinder). Durability is expected to be above average given that this is an Infiniti. My two Nissans (2001 Maxima & 2003 Pathfinder served me well).

The worst part about buying a new car you love is the first 1000 miles. You have to baby it. Now, after 1000 miles, I can drive with more enthusiasm. I love this car! Once you see it with the sport package (20" wheels, blacked out lights)you have to have it. Throttle tip in is good, love the exhaust sound, love the stance, HID lights, LED tails, high door sills. Only problem is, my wife likes to drive it too. I'm not a jealous person, but that's MY car! 265mm tires and AWD, this car seriously handles like a sports car. No joke.

Great car and great reliability

I hesitated between this one and its main Japanese competitor. A test drive won me over. There has not been a single problem after some 7,000 miles. The car handles like a charm. The engine is more powerful than, but not as smooth as, my bimmer's. Many readers did not give this car a perfect 10 because of its fuel mileage. I did give it a 10 since the fuel mileage I have got is equal or better than the one advertised by Infiniti, so no surprise there. Otherwise, no one should give a perfect mark to any SUVs, simply because of their fuel mileage.

FX is The BEST!!

I was in the car business for years ,Ive sold everything from Mercedes Benz, Porshe, Audi, Lincoln & Mercury and Nissan, This Infiniti FX 35 is the best SUV I have ever driven especially considering the low cost and great value, This FX 35 gives BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne Lincoln Aviator serious nightmares, it is the BEST of ALL of THEM!

ultimate vehicle

Best value for a car ever. I would rather own and be seen in this than a lamborghini or ferrari. Can't fit anything into those two, and imagine the insurance! Buy one of these now, because I don't see how it's possible to improve, especially the styling. Drove previous lease in heavy snow conditions, pereformed like a champ-- mucho traction. Also am a original owner of a 1996 z3 (before they ruined the styling)-- never thought I could love a car more than that one, but this one I do.

Great combo of sport & luxury w/ tech!

Wanted a sports car, needed the room...my FX35 was the perfect choice. Went from a G35 coupe and didn't sacrifice a lot of performance, but gained so much more. The tech toys are amazing, some of the most comfy seats I've ever sat in. Only 1 mpg less that my coupe on average! A blast to drive and looks awesome, with the great reliability of Infiniti.

Waited too long to get this

I traded in my acura TL for a loaded 06 FX35 AWD. Thought about getting the MDX or RX330 but notice every soccer mom had one. Made the right choice. This is real head turner and is very fun to drive. So far so good. You'll find it hard to get out of it once you drive. If you test drive one of these, be prepared to buy it.

Absolutely love it!

I love it! I just took it for my first roadtrip to Vegas and it was great. One of the most comfortable roadtrips I have had! Gas was really great on the highway, but in the city its not too great. But so far, this car is definitely doing its job and I am enjoying it thoroughly!

FX35 - Bionic Cheetah

The FX35 is absolutely incredible. One review I read coined it the "Bionic Cheetah", they couldn't have picked a more appropriate title. This SUV is the definitely part sports car, part SUV. It is not just fun to drive, but a thrill to drive. I added the Sport, Touring, and Technology package, which brought it out of the ordinary to the extraordinary. I highly recommend the FX35 (Bionic Cheetah) to anyone looking to break out of the ho-hum SUV mold.

FX is a great buy

Purchased FX for snow season. My other car is a Porsche Boxter S and I enjoy driving the FX nearly as much.

SUV with a heart of a sports car

Every time I have to drive somewhere I get a big grin on my face. This car is way too much fun to drive. I love the shape and the looks of the car. I haven't had it for a long period of time but my friend has an '03 and the FX is unique. There are some annoyances like layout of the console buttons and functionality of some of the features but all cars have some sort of a fault in them. Overall, I'm very happy with the FX.

I have owned many SUVs, but this one is the best! It handles great, has lots of power, and better than average fuel mileage for an SUV. This vehicle beats the BMW X5 all day long, you would have to spend 55K+ to get same level of performance and equipment. The Touareg is nice but costs more money, less power (V6 model), and hoorible fuel mileage. Infiniti hit a hoome run with the FX!

Best Sports Utility Vehicle ever

The car is much better than any other SUVs I had before or drove. I drove the old and new Ford Explorer, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, Mitsubishi Montero, Porsche Cayenne, VW Touareg V6. I can only compare it to the Porsche Cayenne S V8 and VW Touareg V8, but these consume more gas 14/18 while my FX35 makes 17/21.

love it !

I just took delivery of my second Infiniti FX35. I traded in an 03 FX35 Golden Sand for and Autumn Copper with sport package. Awesome! I love the enhancements made to the vehicle. From the color central display to the back up camera; the FX just keeps getting better. I enjoy turning heads on the road!

My lease end on the Audi TT Coupe Quattro, and the need for something more practical with AWD led me to an SUV. My dissapointment with having to depart my roadster was almost forgotten with this awesome machine! I have the AWD with Sports, Touring, and Tech package. It is fast; desceptively so. It is fun to drive; the kids love it. It is truly a luxury sports sedan with the convenience of an SUV. It still turns heads even though it has been out for 3+ years. Now only if I can talk the wife into a Caymen S! Dream on!

what an amazing vehicle, its truly is a suv with the heart of a sports car. the handling is unlike any other suv i've ever drove. this thing is like riding on rails. ive got the sport package and the 20s look great the ride is firm but i dont mind, i test drove one with the 18s on it and if smooth ride is your cup of tea go with those

I love the performance and tight construction of the FX-35. After owning it for 3 days, with the "keyless" entry package, A Prius with the keyless feature parked next to me and confused my FX's system. The FX wnet into theft lockout mode and the car had to be towed to a dealer to reset the system. This is a very bad and buggy deisign - shame on the Japanese designers!! Toyota only ships 75 radio codes so this is a recurring problem for Toyota - not sure how many Inifniti codes there are. Also, bluetooth phone system locks up when the call can't go through - ignition must be shut off/on to reset the bluetooth system - more bugs - factory designers need to get their act together!!

Amazing

This is my first SUV, and I love it. It drives like a sports car. I had it hooked up with the sports package, with chrome pillars and cross bars, which really makes it stand out on the road. I wasn't sure if the 280 hp would be enough for me, but it definitely gets the job done. The bose sound system really kicks to. I can't say enough about this vehicle.

We own an Infiniti G35 coupe and absoulutely love the performance of this vehicle but we needed something more practical for our family and this SUV has been the ticket to Breathtaking performance and versatily. This car is a real looker and a real performer as well.

The FX is fun to drive. It's an SUV but doesn't give you that top heavy feeling as if you will be blown over by a strong gust of wind. Handles very well!!

I waited three months from order date to delivery date and I must say it was worth the wait. This is absolutely the best machine I have ever driven. Nothing else looks like it on the road and it is a blast to drive. Handling, comfort, tech-toys, looks - the total package!

This is one of the few cars that I have owned that I absolutely love to drive. It drives like a sports car, yet gives the functionality of a family SUV. Plus the exterior design is one I never get tired of looking at. I love this car!
