Very Sporty Suv — Drives and handles like a sports car. I was very surprised when I tested it out how fun it is to drive. I also like the stereo system -- good sounding. I bought it used with 40k miles and so far no problems, no squeaks, rattles or problems except the CD player skips easy when the car is cold. I think the seats are comfortable, but not really a fan of the controls next to the center. I also don't care for the memory seat buttons being on the side of the seat near the door. Tought to reach for me and my wife. The appearance is good, but not great. I get a lot of "what is it?" but not much "wow!" from it, unless people get inside. Everyone likes the interior. MPG is decent, at about 19-20 on the highway and 16ish in town/mixed. These are my manual calculations. Computer is not too far off most of the time. I had a 2001 QX4 and the FX is a little better. Storage space is not as good as the QX4, but it hauls groceries, luggage for 3 people and most items that we need to haul. The visibility is also not that good. I am used to using my mirrors, but it took my wife a little while to get used to the blind spots. We also removed the headrests in the back. My son is 8 and his head is below the level of the rests, anyway. I would recommend this car if you want sporty handling, but need AWD and a little bit of clearance. Honestly, I wanted a G35x, but my wife likes to sit up a little higher and we drive to visit family that live on an unimproved road. She probably likes the car a little better overall than I do.

Fx35 — The FX35 is wonderfully built and has a wonderful motor. Driving it is a dream with its strong motor and sound, but i still think it is a bit overpriced. After four years the interior has gotten ruined, but the exterior is still in great shape!!!

Best Car I Have Ever Owned! — A very sporty car that is a ton of fun to drive. It has an incredible exhaust sound and has the power/speed to back it up. A very comfortable ride for everyday driving. Being a Nissan product it is also very reliable and easy to maintain.

Pros

This is perfect combination of power handling, style and performance.

Cons

Back seat is not very comfortable. Since this car has DNA of Sports cars so there is no concept of back seat anyway

Pros

Most comfortable seats I have ever sat in, good sounding exhaust, good looks, acceleration, handling, back seat room, reclining back seats,

Cons

Cargo area in the back was a tad small.  About the same size as a BMW X5.  Fuel mileage for me was 15/22 with premium fuel.  20 in wheels were a bit "twitchy".  Car would pull from one side to the other when you hit road patches or grooves.  Ride was not rough, but firm.  May be too firm for some.

Best All Around Car I've Owned — I was a little hesitant about buying this car, but was glad I did. It is the best all around car I've owned. It sits up higher than a car, the seats are very comfortable, tons of cabin room and not to mention the car is so much fun to drive. My bad mpg may be because I couldn't keep my foot out of the accelerator.

A+ — very good acceleration and braking and handling, firm on the ground, needs little repairs and very nice appearance both inside and outside, it costs alot of gas but its very fun to drive and its engine has a big roar and an amazing performance.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Ride — I really enjoy this car. Its just enough to keep me out of trouble, yet it is still a load of fun. I was forced off the road a few weeks back and ended up in 3 inches of mud. Low center of gravity prevented a roll over. Its great.

Pros

Excellent handling, braking, emergency maneuvering, well equipped 1/2 the cost of comparable Porsche Cayenne S.  Exhaust note is nothing short of a musical masterpiece.

Cons

Gas station's best friend, eats tires like a fat girl in a donut shop, brakes have been known to be problem area.

It Begs To Be Driven Hard! — The magazines don't lie. This is one of the best performing SUV's on the road. Look for the redesigned model in early August, coming as an '09.

First Suv I've Ever Owned And Absolutely Love It. — I've owned this car for about 2.5 years and love it. It looks amazing, handles like a sports car, accelerates impressively for a SUV, the BOSE sound system is phenomenal.
