Used Infiniti FX35 Overview And How
To Buy At The Lowest Price

When the FX35 made its debut for the 2003 model year, the crossover SUV segment was in its infancy and most were simply smaller SUVs or larger wagons. This changed with the FX35 due to its aggressive styling, powerful engine and impressive road manners. Yes, a crossover SUV could indeed be both stylish and sporty.

Produced until 2013 when it was replaced by the FX37, with its sleek design and athletic demeanor, lower mileage Infiniti FX35s are still a viable used crossover option today because of their strong build quality. The FX35 also has great genes, having shared a platform with the Infiniti G35 sport sedan and the agile EX35. Its standard features list is also loaded.

That said, there are some tradeoffs. In exchange for its style and performance, the FX35 sacrifices some cargo room and versatility, and this should be remembered by potential buyers.

Used Infiniti FX35 AWD (2004)

The FX35's first-generation was produced for the 2003 through 2008 model years in one well-equipped trim level available in either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive forms. Under the hood was a 3.5 liter V6 engine that produced a robust 275 horsepower. The only available transmission was a 5-speed automatic and standard safety features included stability control, traction control and antilock disc brakes (ABS). Side curtain airbags became standard for 2005.

The interior was both luxurious and sporty with standard features including dual-zone climate control, power front seats, reclining rear seats, cruise control, keyless entry, 18 inch aluminum wheels, HID headlights and an in-dash 6-speaker CD audio system.

In addition, these Infinity FX35 models can be found with optional features such as leather upholstery (became standard in 2006), a 300-watt 11-speaker Bose audio system, the Sport Package which adds a sport-tuned suspension and 20 inch wheels, and the Technology Package which includes navigation, Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert and several other features (navigation was also a stand-alone option).

There were several changes during this production run that used FX35 buyers should keep in mind. Models from 2003 to 2005 came with somewhat fewer standard features and a weaker audio system. Not only did the 2006 FX35 add new standard features such as leather upholstery, a Bose audio system, a power tilt and telescoping steering wheel and a rearview camera, but it also got a slightly revised exterior.

Used 2009 Infiniti FX35 SUV

Optional IPod connectivity can be found in some models starting in 2007, while satellite radio became a standard feature in 2008.

Infiniti ushered in the second-generation FX35 in 2009 and produced it through the 2013 model year. It's aggressive and popular styling was carried over, but with some revisions to its nose, grill and front fender that many feel make it a little classier looking.

In addition, there was a bit of a power boost up to 303 horsepower in the FX35's 3.5 liter V6 as well as a new 7-speed automatic transmission. Again offered in RWD and AWD forms, standard features include the likes of leather upholstery, xenon headlights, 18 inch alloy wheels, satellite radio, a back-up camera and a Bose surround-sound audio system with a 6-disc CD changer. And many optional packages are available so used FX35 models from this generation can be found with features such as Bluetooth connectivity, adaptive cruise control and navigation.

Consumers shopping in this class may also want to consider the equally athletic BMW X5, the spacious Cadillac SRX and the versatile Acura MDX.

Overall, due to its athleticism, edgy style and feature availability, we believe the Infiniti FX35 can make a solid choice for an older midsize crossover SUV for those who don't need lots of space or a third row.
