After a lot of research and debate I purchased this car in April with about 63,000 miles on it from a local dealer. I had previously owned a Lexus RX300 and was VERY satisfied with that SUV. I decided to make the switch to the FX35 because I think it is the best looking crossover on the road and it gets very good reliability ratings. I have a 9 month old son so space and practicality was an initial concern as well. I have been very satisfied with this purcahse so far. The vehicle is very comfortable and REALLY fun to drive. It is a unique SUV which I like because there were a lot of choices out there but none of them excited me like this one did. I considered the Lexus RX350, the Acura MDX, Subaru Outback. I have no regreats so far! Things I like about this car: Fun to drive! Comfortable (just took a 5 hour road trip and it was great)! Styling Enough room for my family I wish the gas mileage was a little better, especially in the city. I have been averaging about 15-16 MPG for city driving, and about 21 on the highway. On my recent road trip I averaged about 30 MPG. Overall this has been a great vehicle and I am glad I purchased it!

I purchased this car for my daughter as a graduation present. The color of burnt orange is her school's colors (Univ of Texas). I may end up keeping it and giving her my new 2013 Equinox instead. lol Powerful 280 hp V-6. Luxurious throughout. The car, although a 2006, was well maintained and the dealer put new tires and brakes on it. Was in great shape. Very powerful. Gas mileage is nothing to brag about, but after having owned a 1999 Durango for so long I am used to lousy gas mileage. Only two real complaints: (1) Needs premium gas, and (2) the entertainment center is mystifying. You really need to pull out the owner's manual and play with it to get used to all the settings. All in all - outstanding vehilcle.

We have always liked the styling of this vehicle and are happy to have purchased one. I have had other luxury vehicles that have been good but this offers everything. Every gadget you can imagine. I am 6.4 and am not comfortable in so many vehicles plenty of leg and headroom here. Sporty ride with the sport package rides like it is on rails almost feels like 4 wheel drive even though mine is not. Best navigation system I have seen and I have had one in my last 5 vehicles. Consider this vehicle if you want something different.

The Tightest and Most Reliable Car I've Owned

I have owned 3 Infinti FX's and I love the tight sports car handling as well as the fact that they have been maintenance free other than normal routine services. My FX has many safety features such as the lane departure system, and it beeps when I get too close to another car. It has the handling of a race car, but is comfortable and luxurious. Also, I have found the Infiniti customer service to be superior to any other company that I have deal with. I will be an Infiniti owner for life!

Great styling and comfort. Feels like a sports car that sits high off the road. Has every option you can think of and a few I didn't know existed. The one draw back is the blind spots even though the mirrors have a custom round mirror to see directly next to you. Overall I love it and would highly recommend the FX35. I'm hooked and this wont be my last FX i buy.

Wanted to own one, whenever i saw it on the roads.

by from Durham, NC on March 19, 2007

Like the body style, the rid and its comfort. I liked it when i first saw it on the road. I fall in love with it when i test drive it. A few months later purchased a new 2006 SL Model.

No doubt the safest car I ever purchased. See below-was purchased for my daughter and glad I did. This past Feb, 2014, having driven this car for 1 year, she was in a bad accident. Some drunken driver slammed into the right rear of the car at 75MPH on an interstate highway. It caused the car to to swerve, hit a center concrete barrier, then roll three times. There were three girls in this car and none of them got hurt other than bumps and bruises. Definitely survived the rollover test. Insurance settled immediately so I had to get her another car. That was a no-brainer - a 2008 FX-35 which is even nicer than the one totaled.

Replacement for my Touareg... So glad I did!

I was married to German cars for a long time... love the engineering but after four years in my Touareg and literally living at the dealership for every little thing, I needed a break. I've owned my FX for six years and am the second owner. I have had absolutely no problems except there was a common problem where some dashes got bubbles but it was a recall item and Infiniti replaced mine with no problem. The car is great in the snow and is not high off the ground like other SUV's. The hands free phone is great and the NAV is reliable. It would be better, however, if it were touch screen. I like the intelligent cruise control. Some find it annoying but it can be turned off. I would highly recommend this car new or used (although I'm not as crazy about the new ones)

I had 5 years to think about what car i wanted to buy, and the Infiniti FX35 snuck up on me because I really didn't consider it until i ran across a used one when looking at another car at a dealership. The head turning factor of this SUV is what grabs you; it's the best looking vehicle of it's class. It has ALL of the options you can want, and some you didn't know of. Once I test drove it; it was game over. The features, the performance, it blew me away folks. I'm a happy camper. The one regret is the gas mileage. (If you want to play, you have to pay.) It's like owning a Z, you have the performance, plus you have the room to carry friends and/or family.
