2009 FX50 - Pros & Cons

I'm considering purchasing a 2009 FX50 (non-S model) with 72K miles on it. I've had a 2012 FX35 and did not care for the transmission, so I got rid of it. Would I experience similar dislikes with the 2009 FX50, or is it a different story because of the V-8? Any other pros/cons that any of you can share re; a 2009 FX50?

what did you not like about the transmission in your fx35? afaik the fx50 transmission is the same but potentially with different ratios
I dislike that the fx50 tx likes to lug. Unless you're fully committed to "spirited driving" it's going to have you pulling around at 2k rpm. When you do kick it in to DS or keep your engine over 3k it absolutely rips.
the big brakes limit your wheel choices, if you care
cupholders leave something to be desired.
rear doors need to be open near 90 to be able to get in. just a function of the body style, same as your fx35.
