2005 Infiniti FX35 Problems

Radiator leak

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.

Bad Wheel Bearing

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.

Fuel filler hose may crack and leak when refueling
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.

2005 Infiniti FX35 Reviews

Pearl white beauty..it's a sleek sporty rocket machine..elegant looking from all angles..performs excellent w/over 200,000 miles, 80 on the fwy is smooth, always put in 89 gas..oil changes every 5K miles, do it myself w/new oil filter...love this car..it's so gorgeous!
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.
