Pros

Distinctive design; spirited performance; lower price for 2011


Model News

The biggest news for the FX is its lower price for 2011. Even with the price drop, the 2011 FX got a few new features, such as a standard power liftgate and a new color, Malbec Black. Other changes occurred in the options lineup, in which the Navigation Package has been added to the Premium Package for the FX35, and a Deluxe Touring Package with cosmetic upgrades has been added for the FX50.


Value Writeup

The FX35 has had its price dropped by $1250 over last year's model, and the top-end FX50 price tag came down by $2600. The FX loses nothing in the bargain, and even gains a few options. The FX manages to keep its sporty performance in a crossover body with an appealing design.


Model Highlights

There are two models for INFINITI's performance crossover, the FX35, with a 3.5-liter, 303-hp engine, and the FX50, with a 5.0L, 390-hp engine. The FX35 can be had with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive; the FX50 comes in all-wheel-drive form only. Any way it's configured, the FX comes with a 7-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift control and downshift rev matching in manual mode.

Safety features include the INFINITI Advance Airbag System, which adjusts for seatbelt use, seat occupancy and crash severity when deploying the front airbags. The FX also uses anti-lock brakes, electronic brake distribution, brake assist, traction control and vehicle dynamic control. Intelligent brake assist and forward collision warning, which uses a laser rangefinder to alert the driver to an imminent collision, are optional.

Standard equipment is pretty extensive for the FX, with a power moonroof, automatic on/off headlights, power liftgate and speed-sensitive windshield wipers. Inside, push-button ignition, dual-zone climate control, rear heating and cooling vents, leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and 10-way driver's seat are all standard. Even the 11-speaker Bose system with USB and 2 GB of storage is standard, though the FX50 gets and upgrade to 9.3 GB ? an option for the FX35.

Other options for the FX35 that are standard for the FX50 include quilted leather seating, climate-controlled front seats, in-dash CD/DVD player, power tilt steering wheel, navigation system and the Around View monitor with front and rear sonar. Adaptive front headlight are options for all FX models, as are maple interior accents.

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011 INFINITI FX, MODEL YEAR 2012 INFINITI M, MODEL YEAR 2011-2012 NISSAN FRONTIER, MODEL YEAR 2011-2012 NISSAN XTERRA, MODEL YEAR 2011-2012 NISSAN PATHFINDER, AND MODEL YEAR 2012 NISSAN NV VEHICLES. SOME OF THE BOLTS THAT CONNECT THE ENGINE OIL COOLER AND THE ENGINE OIL FILTER TO THE ENGINE IN THESE VEHICLES MAY HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED TO BELOW SPECIFICATION STRENGTH. AS A RESULT, THE BOLT MAY BREAK AT THE OIL FILTER ATTACHMENT POINT AND CAN CAUSE AN ENGINE OIL LEAK.

Consequence
IF THERE IS AN ENGINE OIL LEAK, THE ENGINE OIL PRESSURE WOULD DROP AND THE ENGINE COULD SEIZE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

NISSAN WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CONNECTOR BOLTS FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT JANUARY 19, 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
