Sports coupe with higher ground clearance
The window washer fuse burned out.
One of the fog light lamps had to be changed.
Back seat is ripped in one very small place.
Maybe I am not too qualified to judge this car yet, as it is only few hundred miles that I've driven it, but still I can't hold in the excitement I have every time I look at or drive this car.
All my cars (except the last one, which I bought for my wife, as I got a company car for myself) in the past were coupes or sedans with very strong engines (MX6, M3, BMW 750, S500, etc).
Having bought a 2007 RAV4 last year, as I got a 2007 Pathfinder as the company car, I thought I got the perfect ladies car, (which is also an off-roader) and I was right, it was a ladies car.
Occasionally I had to drive the RAV4, and although it is a very nice car with a lot of features, I didn't feel at ease in it. So this year we decided to sell the RAV4 and buy used 2006 FX35.
And trust me it was the best decision. The car is like a sports coupe but with higher ground clearance, amazing handling, power and brakes; I am not even talking about the interior quality, the audio system and the SOUND of the CAR. Some would say the downside is the comfort, but I like how sporty this car rides, I like to feel what I am driving on. Hope the suspension can handle local roads for a long time.
The second row seating is much better than in the Pathfinder, although it is a little hard to get in or out. You will get little dirt on your clothing in bad weather (especially ladies wearing dresses).
Overall this is an excellent car. I am a little disappointed with the design of new FXs, but what can you do? A beauty like this you can only make once, I guess!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
