As of now, I don't have any complaints yet, but some that I can think of from members on these boards:

1) leather seats
2) auto-door locks when ignition turns on/or drive off over 5 mph
3) leather seats
4) vents blowing warm air even when a/c is off
5) that's all i can think of for now

PS: some members here have complained about leather seats :twisted:

P.P.S: just curious, why post this topic in "for sale?"

In addition to the important issues listed above:

- Lack of cargo room / storage space.
- Really tinny, cheap sounding horn.

But frankly I love the ride and that's being picky. The horn thing iritates me though. Shouldn't be that "tinny" for a $40K+ ride.

I guess I will move it, but where does Magician want it?

For now I will move it to General, pending on Magician.

FX problems:

Better insulation in door panels to prevent squeaky noise from internal styrofoam rubbing internal door panels

redesign of console storage compartment to eliminate the 1000 moving parts and all the rattles

eliminate plastic - on -metal issues with battery compartment and brake fluid compartments rubbing / slapping against metal framing under the hood

did anyone mention leather seats?

redesign of outside mirrors to eliminate camel-like storage of all water from washings

better drainage of top of rear hatch area (more slope) to eliminate 3 day drip period after washing

addition of auto up/down for rear windows

lighting for homelink buttons

I love my FX. But that doesn't mean I hate some things about it and wished they were different .. so some of these things are "Problems" and others are "desired features".

My List:

1. Seat Heaters are weak, weak, weak.

2. A/C always comes on with Auto button when no cold air is needed. (Winter)

3. Warm air blows out of vents in summer when all you want is fresh air without A/C, when outside temp is cool.

4. Rear vents blow cold air when heat is on (winter.)

5. Placement of clock / analog only. Put a digital clock in the nav screen, please.

6. Key Fob panic button should be smaller. I set that **** thing off twice a week.

7. FM Radio reception is weak. Need better antenna / diversity system.

8. I can't stand the ICC, but I imagine others like it. I should be able to disable it permanently without holding ON button for 5 seconds each time.

9. This car needs auto door locks at 5 mph.

10. Nav system needs work. Should be able to get proximity information, like "direct me to nearest gas station"

11. Auto/parking lights/headlight switch on stick was designed extremely poorly. Every time you turn on or off your lights at night, Auto turns on the lights, parking turns them off, then ON turns them on, blinking your headlights unnecessarily. Same goes for turning them off. Auto should be the LAST position.

12. Driving / running lights

13. Eliminate "I Agree" nag screen on starting car every f***ing time. (yes I know there's a mod)

14. Allow input of address on Nav screen while driving with passenger seat occupied. (yes, I know there's a mod.)

15. When in reverse, point mirrors down.

16. I don't have the classic "leather seat" problem, but I do wish the leather quality was better.

Why not just use the "auto" position in this case as the "on" position thus avoiding the "blinking" of lights. My lights are off and I manually turn them off/on at night by just using AUTO.

I'm not enthralled with Auto .. first off, I like turning my lights on very early, at the hint of dusk. Even at the most sensitive setting, auto won't turn on as early as I want it to.

Second, and this may be absurd .. but it's cold where I live, we've been having weeks where the temp hasn't gone above 10. I really don't want my HIDs running for 3 (?) minutes after I turn off my car, sucking the battery dry .. I'd rather save that battery for tomorrow's -5 degree start, thanks.

You can change the auto-off time to 30 seconds, i believe it is set at 45 stock
