Great all around vehicle
December 2, 2012
Vehicle has great handling and picks up quickly (as to be expected with a V8) the ride is stiff, although drives very well on the highway (knew that going in with 20" wheels and sport tuned suspension). The cabin is the quietest of any vehicle I have owned and the quality of the interior is well put together-- even being 7 years old, vehicle is without rattles. Back seat space is really best equipped to comfortably have 2 adults.
Appearance of any vehicle is a personal preference, but I love the way it looks and have had several compliments on my vehicle. I was looking for a higher end vehicle that had awd, strong performance, and additional space for kid/equipment (stroller, car seat, golf clubs, etc.), without being overly large or boxy. The Infiniti fx45 fits this criteria perfectly; it drives more like a sedan, but give a bit more functionality for various excursions. I docked a star on comfort due to the harshness of the ride and a star on reliability as the CD player is prone to skipping and there is not a factory auxillary input (300 watt Bose system with nav and a cassette player?) also the tire pressure warning comes on intermittently even though all tires are properly inflated.
