The Infiniti FX35, classified as a luxury SUV, is supposed to be one of the cars that shouldn't give its owner and passengers any problems. Comfort, style, and reliability are only some of the few perks one should get when a car like this is purchased. Contrary to that ideal, it has encountered its own share of problems since it was first released back in 2003. Various issues have been identified and answered by the company as an effort to limit and suppress complaints from its loyal market. Here are some of the major recalls of the Infiniti FX35:
For some units of the Infiniti FX35 produced between 2003 up to 2006, it is reported that the stock fuel filler hose that transports pumped gas to the tank has a tendency to crack and result to punctures. In effect, it is possible that there is a leakage during every time the car is being refueled. There is a risk of ignition and fire which may result to catastrophic consequences. Around 200,000 units are believed to be affected by this problem. Infiniti has ordered a recall on the affected models for the installation of a sturdier part.
The Infiniti FX35 also has issues regarding its exterior lighting. For the estimated 100,000 units produced from 2003 to 2006, the brightness of the lights failed to meet the required safety standards. Vehicles with this issue may be difficult to see regardless of the weather. This could result to accidents because of the car's lack in visibility. To avoid any inconveniences, Infiniti has ordered a recall to solve the issue. Owners are advised to bring their car to the dealership for a free installation of brighter lights.
Children and infants should never be in harm's way whenever they are placed inside a vehicle. However, the Infiniti FX35 also has issues regarding the awkwardly placed anchorage that secure a child safety seat to a car. Not only does this lead to some difficulty during installation of the seat, the bad positioning of the system could result to an unsecured setup that can cause further injuries to the child in case of an accident. The affected 90,000 units have been recalled so that the dealership may install a new anchorage system.
