Thread: Infiniti EX reliability

  1. #21
    We've updated the results for the EX35 to include owner experiences through December 31, 2009x. A big thank you to everyone who helped make this result possible.

    With a repair frequency of 56 repairs per 100 cars per year, the EX35 is about average. Earlier common problems with the noisy fuel pump and the power tilt-and-telescope steering wheel have largely fallen out of the one-year window.

    We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds," to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop.

    In the case of 2008 EX, the percentage with no repairs is about 66, and the percentage of lemons is 3.

    With prompt quarterly updates, we'll continue to track them closely. The more participants we have, the better the information we can provide. Especially need more 2009s and 2010s.

    We've updated the results for the V70 and XC70 to include owner experiences through December 31, 2009. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

    2009: 180, small sample size and clearly not accurate

    2008: 53, about average (S80, V70, and XC70 for this year)

    2007: 38, better than average, small sample size

    2006: 106, worse than average

    2005: 101, about average

    2004: 116, worse than average

    2003: 94, about average, small sample size

    2002: 211, worse than average

    2001: 177, worse than average

    2000: 208, worse than average

    1999: 280, worse than average, small sample size

    1998: 205, worse than average

    We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds," to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop.

    For the 2004, the first is 32, while the latter is 14. These are among the worst for the models currently covered.

    We don't have these for other years yet, though, because they require a larger number of responses.

    A big thank you, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in May and August. With more participants, we could provide all three stats for all model years. So if you haven't already signed up to participate, please consider doing so.

    We've updated the results for the EX35 to include owner experiences through March 31, 2010. A big thank you, once again, to everyone who helped make this result possible.

    With a repair frequency of 56 repairs per 100 cars per year, the 2008 EX35 is about average. Earlier common problems with the noisy fuel pump and the power tilt-and-telescope steering wheel have largely fallen out of the one-year window.

    We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds," to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop.

    In the case of 2008 EX, the percentage with no repairs is about 62, and the percentage of lemons is less than one.

    With prompt quarterly updates, we'll continue to track them closely. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

    Thanks for all your hard work, Michael. It's good to know that the poor EX, while not a strong-seller because of its size, is well-built and reliable, as an Infiniti should be.

    My wife loves the EX! I did meet a planner now at GM who used to be at Nissan. He felt that they totally botched the packaging of the EX.

    I agree, it's way too space inefficient. I was just talking about this with one of our admins, and we dug up the specs- the EX is the same length as the Nissan Rogue, and has a nearly 5 inch-longer wheelbase, yet has 7 inches less rear leg room! It's a shame because it's so reliable, it handles like a G35 sedan and has very nice fit and finish. Oh well, nothing a redesign can't fix in a couple years.:thumbup:

  12. #32
    But what if the redesign is based on the Rogue, mini-JX style?

    Good thinking! A mini JX would sell like crazy.

  14. #34
    They could make it a small JX by using the FWD-CVT platform, and I'm sure it would sell. But as an enthusiast I kinda want them to keep the EX on the G's platform. I don't want there to bee too many Infinitis with a somewhat dulled (though not bad) driving experience, as in the JX. That Motortrend interview about the G being based on the upcoming C-class mentioned that a new EX based on the new G is being explored. Such a car would be a great analogue to the BMW X3, as is the FX for the X5/X6 twins. All Infiniti has to do this time is not be so terrible at packaging the thing.

  15. #35
    I agree Jay, but the EX is seriously mainstream flawed. I thought about buying one when I turned my '06M in but just too small. Really a nice, ah gorgeous interior setup though. More than I need most of the time but much less than what I need some of the time.

  16. #36
    My dad looked at them, and also found them too small. Ended up in a Forester after deciding to be really fiscally conservative when the recession started looking like a long-term prospect.:o He itches to get back into Infiniti eventually, be it a CPO rather than new like his G was.

    They surely can keep the EX RWD-based, and just make it bigger. It actually needs to be about the size of today's FX, and the FX can grow just a little bit. There is not a huge size difference between an X3 and an X5, for example. And the JX is so much bigger than the FX that it can afford to tack on an extra 3-4 inches in length.

  17. #37
    The FX as a sports crossover is the balls. But it really is a niche vehicle. I don't think I would base much off of this design.

  18. #38
    Yeah, I guess what I'd like to see, is this type of execution: make the EX a bit more of a 2-box, like the JX, but keep it a G underneath. The FX can stay more or less the niche vehicle that it is. It's basically a Japanese X6. If they want, they can introduce a 3-row RWD/AWD crossover with better road manners than the JX, but I will only let Infiniti do that after they give us more sedans and sports cars. They have been SUV crazy the past few years. If they do one more before we get an M coupe, or electric sedan, or supercar, I will send them to their room without dinner.
