Infiniti FX35 Problems

Front wheel bearing causes grinding noise

Owners have reported a number of prematurely worn front wheel bearings. As the bearing fails, a rotational humming or grinding noise may be noted from the front as vehicle speed increases. Replacement of the bearing would be necessary to remedy this condition.

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.
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.

Engine: Bought the 2004 FX35 used with 80,000 miles for $8000. 2 monthes later, the engine cut out while driving. Car started up after about 10 minutes, drove another 5 minutes, and the engine cut out once again.

I am very disappointed in my Infiniti. I have bought 3 sets of tires in 2014 and its August. Not even a year of work on them and always between 5000-8000 miles no matter what tires I buy. They end up almost eaten away with zero tred to be found. I will not buy an expensive car to have to keep replacing tires every 4 months.
