Amazing vehicle. Smooth, fast, sporty. Elevated like an SUV but handling like a real sports car and with the acceleration. It comes with lots of bells and whistles, and much more tech stuff than any other. The 7 speed Automatic transmission is perfect, especially when coupled with the steering mounted paddles for shifting. They can be used immediately and when you stop using them the transmission goes back to Drive. When in Drive, i found that the transmission shifts smoothly down or up and it's always in the right gear. The only problem I found was when accelerating on 7th speed, there is a lag there perhaps because it has to gear down a few gears to get the power. The best thing is to use the paddle or the tiptronic shifter. All in all, a fun to drive luxury SUV.
This car is amazing. I've been an SUV guy for about 20 years (I was a very early adopter with a Mitsubishi Montero, Isuzu Amigo, and Toyota 4Runner). In addition we bought my wife a Lexus RX330 which is a great riding SUV (very much like a sedan but with better height/visibility). But the FX35 is the best of all the cars I've owned by far. It looks great, is comfortable, with well laid out controls, and performs like a champ. Steering and suspension are solid but not so "sporty" as to be rough. Acceleration is a blast -- not enough to smoke a BMW X5or Porsche Cayenne, but enough kick to enjoy driving every day. Decent stock stereo (with iPod/iPhone connector) and Bluetooth connectivity for my phone round out the package. Highly recommended!!!
This is the best car I have ever owned. I love it.
