I posted this in another thread (since I also used to own a FX35 before):Haters gonna hate... .
We have had an FX35 for 8 years and love it. Only getting rid of it for more family size. CVT is great. I only wish we were told about the 2016 upgrades, of course the salesman wants to make the sale on a 2015. Purchased Nov, 2nd.
Didn't you also have a wide variety of reliability problems with the FX35 just like me?Leased a QX60 in October 2014 (2014 model obviously). I do not have the shudder problem, but about every few months the car is back at the dealer. Issues I've had: tailgate didn't stay open, humming sound in AC/heat blower (twice), poor gas mileage (14 mpg), door panel that got detached.
Before the QX60 I owned a 2005 FX35 and I can't begin to describe the reliability problems I had with this car. The only reasons I stayed with Infinity were:
1. We got a grade trade-in deal
2. Leasing. That means after 39 months it's someone else headache
3. My wife loves the 3rd row access where you don't have to detach the car seat.
You seriously can't tell me you like the CVT after coming from a FX35? It works, but I much rather would have a normal transmission.
Anyway, as I wrote above: I think the QX60 is a very, very nice car but the reliability is below average.
