Product Summary

The good: The 2008 Infiniti EX35 Journey can be had with a host of innovative tech, including its Around View Monitor and Lane Departure Prevention. Its navigation system integrates live traffic and offers 3D views, while its Bose audio system sounds excellent. Music sources include a hard drive and iPod integration.

The bad: We had some minor problems with the car, such as the phone book only holding 40 entries. A sixth gear would have been nice to increase fuel economy at freeway speeds.

The bottom line: Impressive for its technology, the 2008 Infiniti EX35 Journey brings in all the latest gadgets, and adds a few unique ones not seen on other cars. It works well as an all-purpose car with a sporty edge.

Infiniti delivers a unique new car with the 2008 Infiniti EX35 Journey, packing it full of over-the-top technology that all proves useful. The EX35 fits the crossover mold, a segment in which Nissan/Infiniti has plenty of experience from prior models, such as the Murano and FX45. But the EX35 leans more toward the car side, with a front end designed after the G35. The roofline of the EX35 isn't much taller than a typical sedan, and the quick drop-off at the rear leads to minimal cargo space.

But the EX35 wins us over with driving tech that includes an almost legendary engine, adaptive cruise control, and lane drift prevention. The interior is everything we expect from Infiniti, with an excellent-sounding stereo and many options for digital music. The navigation system is also loaded with tricks, including 3D view and live traffic with smart routing. And for maneuvering in tight spaces, the Around View Monitor offers camera views around the entire car.
