Yup, I'm biased by Somewhere Out West on 12/26/2009. Trim: 2009 Infiniti FX50 AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Extremely well-made, fiendishly fast - don't tell anyone, but at 130 MPH it remains glued to the road. I am averaging almost 20 MPG's, much better than expected. This is the luxo-cruiser for long trips. I'm prejudiced, but I very much like the aggressive looks over the FX45. Interior is first rate
Cons: Ride is quite stiff - don't go for the Sport Package, it's a waste. Also, backseat is rather small for adults, and less comfortable than my M45. A small quibble - I ordered the chocolate colored interior leather, but the dash is still in Infiniti grey.
Overall review: I ordered the FX as I already had an M45 (the best car for the money I've ever owned). The FX is an incredibly technologically sophisticated car that I have no doubt can go 200,000 miles and still ride like it came out of the showroom. Infiniti is so far superior to Lexus as a driver's car it isn't funny, and faster and $25,000 cheaper than comparable BMW's or Mecedes. And they are so well-built, never had any major problems with my M, FX or QX56 - every four years, I get a new one, pass the old one down to my wife and she gives hers to our son, thus, for us, Infiniti is an incredible value.

Sports Car, Luxury Sedan & Truck with Tech-Heaven - This Car Has It All! by Armadillo From New Jersey on 04/02/2009. Trim: 2009 Infiniti FX50 AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It's a testorone laden beast and I love it! Really practical when it comes to shifting ten bags of mulch but incredibly fast and awesome handling. My wife has a 350Z and I enjoy driving the FX50S every bit as much. Also, I may be 52 but I love the technology. This is without doubt the best car I have ever owned and it turns heads everywhere due to its' unconventional yet eye-catching styling.
Cons: I feel like I should write something here but absolutely nothing comes to mind. Perhaps the steering wheel controls for the nav & radio & phone & cruise are a little confusing at first but I am really stretching for a negative here.
Overall review: After owning a 2005 FX45 the 2009 FX50S is night and day a better car if you want a sports car that doubles as a truck and a luxury transport for 5 passengers. Yes, the ride is a little "stiff" for granny and it does drink gas at a frightening rate but as the the ultimate compromise vehicle between raunchy sports car, practical 4WD SUV, stylish head-turner and luxury tech-laden sedan it has no equal.

FX35... not much like it out there by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/10/2010. Trim: 2009 Infiniti FX35 AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Unique styling, great performance & handlnig
Cons: rear seat room a little lacking. Rear visibility isn't the best, but well complemented by large side mirrors and back-up camera
Overall review: Great vehicle! I owned a 2002, then traded it in for a BMW X5... which I traded in to go back to a new FX35
