    Soon to be an owner of a 2006 FX45

    Hello everyone, it's been a long time. I currently own a 2003 M45 which has been by far the best vehicle I've ever owned. I've never had one problem with it. I bought it used in 2005 with 14,000 miles on it. Before that, a 1994 Pathfinder and a 1992 NX2000. Anyway, if things go right, I'll be picking up a 2006 FX45 this weekend with 9,500 miles on it. Anything I should look for? I test drove a 2008 FX35 which was nice, but I gotta have an 8 cylinder engine and I'm not trying to pay new car price.

    Hey AEConfidential,

    About 15,000 miles on our FX45 and zero problems. You getting it at the Infiniti dealership? If so, ask them to align and balance all four tires.

    Best of luck.

    Yes, picking it up from the same dealership that sold it new about a year ago...it's actually the same dealership I bought my 03 M45 from a few years ago...small world.

    Congrats. I've got an 03 M45 & wifey drives 05 FX45. Just a heads up, if you're into modding or performance...I would recommend the FX35. Same engine as 350z, 1st gen G35's, etc...so part swapping & motor building options are a plenty. As for the FX45, there really aren't many performance upgrades besides air intakes, the usual. But based upon your signature, your SRT8 has plenty of get up & go.

    Thanks. Yeah, that sucks, same with the M45, not too many performance upgrades, just a K&N filter. Yeah, I don't plan on doing any mods anyway. The SRT8 has seen a few minor performance upgrades, nothing major...scared to while under warranty. Ha.

    Here's the new FX45 (to me anyway). Very nice, amazing ride. The last picture is my M45...next time I have them both outside together, I'll do a group photo. Ha. As you can see in the photos, silver is my favorite color. I'm always amazed at the great customer service, I've been to at least 3 different Infiniti dealers and the customer service has been awesome. I'm sold on Infiniti! They had a 07 M45 in the showroom, pearl white, awesome...but with a sticker price of over 50K...I'll stick with my 03. Ha.
