2008 Infiniti FX35 User Reviews
- $18,734 - $19,973
- Stylish, a real attention getter.
- Ride a little rough.
Purchased As Used
The ride is a little rough. But its a trade off because the handling is so good. I traded a BMW 328xi wagon for it and have never looked back.
I would recommend getting rid of the GOODYEAR tires - they are crap. I put a set of 20" Yokohama Envigors on i and its like I got a new car.

- The best SUV on the road for performance enthusiasts!
I just bought a 2008 FX35 AWD. I have wanted one of these for years. I now have the best of both worlds, a G35 Coupe and now the FX35. I am very impressed with the fit and finish of the FX! It is a SUV built on the platform of my G35 Coupe! I do wish the MPG were better but then what can one expect from an AWD SUV? I am most pleased with the dealership and they go above and beyond to make sure that every customer there is 200% satisfied. I am an Infiniti customer for life! Thanks to Matt Stegall and Harper Infiniti of Knoxville, TN! They are the best!...read morehide

- Style, Comfort, Performance, Bells and Whistles
- MPG, Navigation Price
I spent a good 6 months researching this car on Yahoo! Autos. I was torn between this, the X3 and the MDX. Glad I picked the Infiniti, it's been a blast to drive and the MPG doesn't hurt as bad as my previous SUV. The comfort and compactness of the car are a must for a busy metropolitan city. Can't wait to take it to the snow this winter! Only complaint is the navigation...pricey!...read morehide

- Sport car in SUV dress (the definition of crossover), very solid, extremely stable, head turning,...
- You have to get use to the suspension setting (sport setting).
I was looking for sport car but in the same time not giving up my loyalty to SUV, then I brought FX35 2005 model, it is solid car, excellent quality, low maintenance at long run, it fulfill all my requirements. Therefore I changed my old 2005 model with the newer 2008 FX35.
I tried many time to drive the car to the maximum to loss control of the car but the car is very stable and refused to loss control, I can say that it is probable the most stable Crossover car ever build, and can compete with repudiated sport car in stability.
It is the CAR....read morehide

- very confortable seating
- driver seat rubs against left column.. very anoying.
Took the car several time to the dealer to fix the seat rubbing against the left column, but could not be fixed. Called Infiniti about the issue, but they cannot fix it since it is not a safety issue.

- Style, Driving, GPS,
- Badly finished, noises everywhere, dealer does not stand behind product, nor does company.
I bought this car in jan 2005. In the first week, I heard a number of noises coming from the mid console, the windiws, and the door (driver side).
For more thyan 2 years did I bring my car to the dealer to solve the noise problems. They never solved it.
I finally wrote to Infinity. They did send en engineer, but with no results either. I asked for another car. They refused. I contacted BBB, and they found nothing (by a lawyer from the BBB, by the way).
I strongly suggest you think twice about buying this product. Infinity may think they are a high class shop, but they are not.

- Sports car like handling in both dry AND wet conditions, good on-snow traction, great road-trip car.
- Funny blind spot that takes getting used to, 18" wheel/tire combo a tad spongy, loud sunroof
Bought a 07' FX35 AWD to replace two previously owned Jeep Grand Cherokee's (1997 & 2002 V6's, 4WD) immediately noticed much better on-road handling, cornering stability & overall ride quality. The first rainstorm that season made it clear that this was a far superior car in wet weather conditions with better brakes & ABS control & felt much more sure-footed. Have taken it to Tahoe in as much as 5"+ fresh snow, wouldn't recommend much more than that, especially with the so-so stock OEM Bridgestone REO92's (horrible tire IMHO) Bought Yokohama Geolanders in slightly larger size & dramatically improved ride & handling characteristics. (Infiniti, are you listening?) There are some funky blind spots that you must get used to or be prepared to make friends with your local auto repair shops & the trunk space is nothing to write home about but as long as it's just four adults & minor baggage, everything manages to fit.
Overall after looking at BMW X5's, Acura MDX's, the new Jeeps & a really REALLY nice Audi Allroad V8 ($60K+ nice) bought the FX35. The FX45 was simply a beast & I would have loved it but the 12-16 mpg. & the fact that my drivers license would be in immediate jeopardy settled that argument. (the new 2009...read morehide

- Style, handling, nice interior
- bad oem tires, fuel economy average, brakes squeel
Had the car 4 years. If you want a sporty/lux SUV, this is the best unless you want to spend 10k+ more cash. Great handling, adequate power (FX35), has been reliable, good in snow once you abandon the horrible Bridgestone's the car comes with. I have gotten 17mpg in mostly city driving, was hoping for a bit more with the K&N filter. Though the brakes work well, the squeal a lot making the car seem cheap...Nissan really needs to address this problem in their vehicles....read morehide

- Drives and handles like a sports car. Great looks. Std. backup camera and XM radio. Very reliable.
- Narrow rear door bottoms make back seat entry difficult. Uses Premium gas.
This is the most fun to drive vehicle I have ever owned. After 5 months I love it more each day. Test drove all of the luxury crossovers and found the FX35 to be far away the best value and the best looking. The dealer is also great and treats us like royalty.
The body style is 5 years old and people still come up to me in parking lots to tell me how great it looks. Also, it is much more exclusive than the Lexus RX350 which you see at every stop light. There are only 6 FX's in my town and every one is a different color. There is a lot more room to haul things than it appears. We took a 2 week vacation with 3 people and had room to spare.
You have to make very few compromises when you own this SUV. As long as you don't need to seat over 5 people or tow a large boat or trailer, give the FX a look....read morehide

- HEAD TURNER,EXCELLENT HANDLING, NICE BELLS AND WHISTLES
- BAD FUEL ECONOMY, SEAT RUBS AGAINST DOOR COLUMN WHEN ALL THE WAY BACK
THIS CARIS A REAL HEAD TURNER. I HAVE THE DARK BLUE WITH BIEGE GUTS. IT HAS ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES BUT IS NOT GAS FRIENDLY. I HAVE TO USE PLUS TO KEEP THE CAR FROM VIBRATING AT STOP LIGHTS. I HANDLES WELL IN ALL WEATHER CONDITIONS. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL MY LEASE IS UP TO LEASE THE M35X.
