My husband and I bought this car new in 2008. It is a beautiful car inside and out. Inside is pure luxury. The leather seats are plush and comfortable and there are soft touches everywhere. Infiniti did not skimp on interior quality. I bought the Journey with Navigation. It has all the technology you could ask for. The navigation works great, there is a hard drive so you can upload your music to it. It also has an ipod interface which was actually harder to find in '08. Resale value is good. Backup camera is great because you can actually see the screen, meaning that even with sunglasses on you can see it clearly unlike other cars I test drove. I am not an expert in ride and handling but I must say that this car is a very powerful, smooth machine that is quiet (except for sound of the V6 when accelerating which some people love) and has great road feel. The steering is nicely weighted and is not numb feeling at all. It is fun to drive and you feel secure driving it. So I have had this car for three years and have had no major problems with it. The only things that "broke" were the power tilt/telescoping wheel function and the wood trim on the door panels were starting to peel. Both of these issues were quickly fixed by Infiniti without charge. Infiniti gives out loaner cars too which is a BIG reason to buy from them too! The only issue I have with this car is interior space. My daughter was born about a year after I bought the car and when her rear facing infant seat was in the back seat, the front passenger barely had any legroom. Also the back legroom is very minimal. I am only 5'2" and I even have a hard time sitting back there. The cargo space is minimal as well. The second row has a power fold down and up feature which is a nice feature. There is no power tailgate but you don't need it since it is very light. The smart key feature is amazing. You can open up the doors and start the vehicle with the key in your pocket. All in all I would absolutely recommend this car to anyone who does not have kids simple because of space. Wonderful crossover!

Great car with smooth handling

I bought the EX35 used with a little under 20.000 miles. So far the car is fun to drive, great handling, very narrow turning radius (great for parking, narrow streets). The gas mileage could be better. Very fast acceleration. Comfy seats (I almost fell asleep once in stop and go traffic). Overall a great car.

Just recently purchased 2008 infiniti ex35. This car is a joy to drive. I love the music box feature and the extra power this car/suv/crossover is a very smooth ride.

Recently traded in my BMW 335xi sedan for an '08 EX35 with Nav. Wanted to wait a few months before leaving a review to get a true assessment of the car. So far I'm overall thrilled with the purchase. After years of German cars, multiple 3 Series, Z4, VW GTI and a few others, I have to say I'm pleased with the change to a Japanese car. It's not nearly as sporty as the Germans, but that's why I decided to go this route. The BMW's are a blast to drive, but punishing if you have a long commute. This EX doesn't let you dive into a corner aggressively, it has a lot of roll compared to what I'm used to, and even with a 300hp engine, it's a little slower than I'd like. But at this point, I'm happily trading in those items for a massive leap in daily comfort. This car just cruises down the road, soaking up bump after bump. The tech is far beyond my 335, it's quieter, smoother and just a more enjoyable ride for this NE region. And to be fair, it's not slow, just not as quick as my tuned 335 was. Would love some paddle shifters, but I'm dealing. I wanted a small luxury SUV, and in the used car market there's not many options. The RDX was too large and very rough. The X3 was just more of the same BMW. And I'm not an Audi/VW fan. I really like both the interior and exterior styling of the EX. Every car has little faults, and I do find this one has some tough blind spots to get used to, but other than that, I'm very happy with my purchase.

I was in the market for a sporty wagon and this one won with class leading features and get up and go. I drove the 328i wagon and it really didn't do anything for me. The EX came with more features, was noticeably faster, and cost less. The handling needs a little more roll control on turn it but once in a corner it sticks pretty well. I have really grow to like the around view monitor. Overall this is a nice car to travel in and I don't regret buying it.

Bought this one for the wife. She is a little turned offby big ole SUV but likes the additional space and loading benefit. The luxury of this vehicle is fantastic and rides and drives as tight and smooth as my M35. Bought it used with less than 10k miles. Still has new car feel and smell. We don't have any kids to put in back seat, so the small area is ok with us. Golf clubs fit very nicely thank-you...So far, so good.

Gorgeous and fun ride!

by from Hampton, NJ on July 1, 2011

Fun ride, yet extremely quiet ride. Great luxury vehicle. Decent gas mileage for an SUV. I receive a ton of compliments of this car. Reliable and truly beautiful inside and out.
