I really didn't do my due diligence before buying my FX in terms of Infiniti or this model's reliability record. I had the Cayenne S in my crosshairs but decided against that. Other than the Porsche, I didn't have anything else in mind for a crossover SUV. I don't think I missed the boat though because I've heard so many scary stories about the BMW X5's reliability and build record as well as the Touareg's. Have you heard of any such stories regarding our FXs? Mine only has 1200 miles so I cannot comment other than I love the thang. I was just on one of the Touareg boards, http://www.clubtouareg.com, and some of those owners are seriously pissed at VW. Do you know anyone ready to get rid of their FX?
