Summary:

Solid, quick, gorgeous - a great buy

Faults:

Fuel level indicator (fixed under warranty).

General Comments:

Great styling, I am always getting compliments.

The handling and responsiveness are impeccable - but I DID come from an Olds.

Don't kid yourself, the cargo room in this thing is not even close to that of a Tahoe, but then again, the Tahoe doesn't come close to the same performance.

Overall I am very happy with this vehicle. The styling and quality inside and out are very good, and you just can't beat the exhaust note.

AWD and safety features add much more confidence during Minnesota winters.

Summary:

Amazing

Faults:

Nothing so far, this has comfortable ride compared to any other SUV. It's always a head turner.

I wish I had a nav with this, and the camera when backing up, but it is a vehicle that's car like to drive and the looks.

General Comments:

It is quick, responsive, and sound of motor is perfect for a vehicle. Good job Infiniti people. Thank you.

Summary:

WOW! It's like driving for the first time

Faults:

Passenger door hinge became loose.

General Comments:

This car is simply amazing.

I love the way it drives, like a true sports car, but with all the technological advancements of today executed with precision.

The grip the tires have is incredible, especially in the rain w/the VDC on. No slip, sliding away no matter how hard I push it.

Love the higher view also.

The design is beautiful and aggressive at the same time. It draws a crowd.

Parked in front of a restaurant last I had a bunch of kids 6-8 yrs old circling the vehicle telling me they liked my spaceship, lol.

Yeah, I do to.

Summary:

The problems I am having are disappointing

Faults:

The car is pulling to the left, the dealer fixed the alignment, but it still pulls.

Also the biggest disappointment for me with this car is the feel I get from the back end when I go over bumps; it feels as if I went over something slippery if I am going 65+, and when that happens, it's a real bad feeling; it's almost to the point as if I am going to lose control of the vehicle.

General Comments:

This car is a good look on the streets, and can run real well.

The seat are real comfortable for long rides.

What's probably even more disappointing is the fact that the FX35 is an overpriced Nissan Murano with an Infiniti badge. Love the exhaust sound though.

I wouldn't mind a bit IF it's over priced (Which it's not). I love Infiniti. I have a 1998 Infiniti, golden... and I get more noticed than a 03 Lexus RX330. The Infiniti just has this rugged, sport, smooth looks that just can't be beaten. True work of craftsmanship.
