2005 Infiniti FX35 Problems

The fuel filler hose may crack and cause a leak when refueling, which could lead to fire. A recall was issued and the fuel hose will be replaced under warranty.

Popped open hood to find coolant sprayed all over the top of the engine. Hoses appeared intact. Coolant reservoir was empty. Radiator cap looked fine.

Diagnosed problem by bringing the engine to operating temperature and watching the coolant spray out of the radiator.

Issue was the radiator was cracked along the top (where it is plastic). Replaced the radiator.

Started noticing a grinding noise from the right front when cornering at low speed. Eventually the noise became constant at low speed. Diagnosed by putting it on a lift, spinning the wheel and wiggling the tire back and forth. Replaced wheel bearing assembly.

There is a paperclip jammed in the track & I Can't Adjust the seat

Just bought used fx, bottom of driver seat dont work, but can hear motor grinding, dealership quoted crazy price

The sound comes from the right front (can be heard from inside or outside the car) only when turning to the right, and only after driving more than short distances. It's not a squeak or grinding sound, just an "er" sort of sound... don't know how else to describe it.

2005 Infiniti FX35 Reviews

Before buying this car, I was in the market for a sports car (i.e. Porshe, Audi, Bmw,etc.) However, my wife decides to tell me she was pregnant. I thought my dreams were shattered, and oh came the fx35. An excellent cross between sports car and suv! I assure you, you will not be disappointed! Holla Regards, Alex L.

Perhaps the perfect SUV. Not too big, not too small, drives and handles like a sporty car. It looks as good now as it did four years ago.
