Fun to drive, but has it's shorcomings by Bobaloo on 03/01/2010. Trim: 2009 Infiniti EX35 AWD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The EX has wonderful road manners, and I prefer the higher driving position compared to the our G37x. During the recent snowy Mid-Atlantic winter, I found the EX to be excellent in snow. Highway mileage can be excellent, up to 28mpg.
Cons: Rear seat room is not adequate for adults, especially with anyone over 6 ft. in the front seats. Kids will work, but I would not purchase the EX if you have teenagers and need to drive any distance. Rear visibility is terrible. Headrests are oversized and block vision, both for the drivers seat (looking over your left shoulder to check your blind spot) as well as looking over the rear seat. There is no rear quarter vision, and you must rely on your mirrors. The rear hatch is sloped significantly, which restricts the cargo area of the EX. The 2009 base model lacks many basic features that you may expect in an Infinitiy, such as heated seats, bluetooth, auto headlights, and an iPod adapter.
Overall review: The EX is a fun, spirited crossover, and absent the seating and visibility issues noted, would be a homerun for Infiniti. Instead, I keep looking to see if anything more appealing is coming on market.
