Just got my 2004 FX35 last week of July. I've fixed some minor worn down items such as hood props and shocks, changed the oil, but found other things that needs attention.
Gutted out the two front wheel bearings due to a howling noise and ordered a pair of lower control arms and a propeller shaft for the forward drive on this AWD.
I'm yet to get familiarized with the electronic features. One in particular is the keyfob and how it ghostly doesn't allow it to start up, or does then dies out.
I also think that when the previous owner replaced the driver side door handle, something is not connected (linkage?) because it won't open the locking mechanism despite hearing movement in there.
I can't wait until I throw on new tires after the suspension repairs to get the best out of the AWD, before the wife winds up claiming it her car.
