Review: 2013 Infiniti FX37 (Video)

When car companies need to stretch out a model’s useful lifespan, there are a number of tricks they use. After the first year, new colors are added. The next few year options and trim parts are tweaked. Around year four, a limited edition surfaces followed by a drivetrain revamp in year 5. And so it is with Infiniti’s sporty FX crossover, now entering its fifth model year as the “new” 2013 Infiniti FX37. You guessed it, the only thing new about the FX37 is the engine. Today’s burning question is: does a new engine give a luxury vehicle a lease on life? Or is this thinly disguised crossover life support? Click through the jump to find out.

New or Used: The Beating of His Hideous Heart!!!

Love the website. Here is my conundrum:

My wife and I have two cars. A 2007 CR-V that I use mostly for a 75 mile round trip commute several days a week to San Francisco and a 2004 Infiniti FX35 with 52,000 miles. While the CR-V has a ton of utility, I am tired of driving it. It has quite a bit of road noise, the sound system sucks and frankly it’s kind of a female car. The plan is to keep the CR-V and let my wife drive it, and use it as our family car while we sell the Infiniti and I get something for that daily commute. The Infiniti was purchased from a friend and is in great condition, but I feel like it is a ticking time bomb and want to sell it now to take advantage of high used car prices. Plus the mpg is horrific, it doesn’t have satellite radio and the tires are still original and will need expensive replacing shortly.

  • SCE to AUX One world government would solve this problem.

  • Ajla "cutting the number of components involved in the production and for the car’s interior."This is like Calista Flockhart going on a crash diet.
  • SCE to AUX "...as soon as late 2023"I'll hold my breath. TSLA has fallen a lot lately, so this news is timed to fix that.
  • Tassos Most of these are utterly unnecessary. Winter tires especially, they cost $, take too much space to store, and if you have a good set of all season tires, you sure do not need them. I have driven in MI for 45 years, never had winter tires, the last 20 years I drove only RWD cars, and still never needed them. If you own a flagship German car, like I did for many years, air filters can be very expensive. I tried to replace mine this fall, but they asked 4 times what I paid for the exact same part overseas (I own identical 2007 and 2008 E320 Diesels). You can always roll down a window by 1 inch or less in the winter and refresh your cabin air. Wipers are rarely used during winter, you can clean the snow with your scraper, use wipers only when it rains hard. I keep mine for at least two years. Microfiber towels may be good. I never used them. Are they washable in the washing machine? ANd how 'cheap' are they exactly?
