Hello from Houston, TX! I just bought an 08' Infiniti EX35 Journey - Black with Graphite interior with Premium, Navigation, and Luxe Style Packages. I love the car! I traded in my 2005 Infiniti FX35 for this vehicle and absolutely love the drive and look of the smaller crossover.

Hi Guys! I just traded in my 2008 RAV4 V6 4WD SPORT for a new EX35

AWD Journey base. Does anyone know what is the 0 to 60 for the EX35 AWD

Journey? I`ved heard that the EX35 RWD does it at 6.2 sec 0 to 60.

My old Rav4 v6 does it in 6.3-6.4 sec 0-60 and 14.9 sec 1/4 miles. It seems like

after test driving the EX35 AWD Journey it is a bit slower than my previous

car when it accelerate from stop?

can anyone confirm this? My old RAV4 V6 is only 3,670 Ibs. compare to 3,970Ibs

for AWD journey base.

Welcome, Mitch! Did you trade in your EX or are you keeping it and the FX both?

Just curious,David

Welcome to NICO AWGD8!

The Apr 2008 issue of C&D tested the AWD Journey with ALL options (curb weight of 4032 lbs) and they managed a 6.2 sec 0 to 60 mph, with 1/4 mile in 14.6 sec @ 98 mph.

Note: 5 to 60 mph was 6.5 sec and C&D commented, "Acceleration runs are faster using manumatic mode, which is unusual."

HTH,David

Hi everyone. Getting ready to pick up our new E35 today (replaces a G35 sedan) but nervous about the steering wheel motor problems. A couple of weeks ago I aborted finalizing a purchase when the only new e35 with the options I wanted at my dealership had that problem. I hope infiniti isolated it to a determined bunch of cars and the one I pick up today will not have it. I drive a 2009 Nissan GTR and a street-legal 350ZTT track car. My wife drives an 07 350Z Roadster. We are a Nissan/Infiniti family !

Welcome to the EX forum, 23GTR!

So, just wondering, are you new to NICO too or did you create a new nick to participate in the EX forum (since you're a well-entrenched Nissan/Infiniti customer)?

Cheers,David

Thanks. No, did not know it existed until I started researching EX. BTW, just got home with new EX35. :Liq. Platinum/graphite; Premium, Navi, Lx style...etcenjoyed the ride home; the steering wheel motors seem to work...so far. Dealer GM advised no cure yet, just replacement with same part, usually not in stock (you would think they would stock it since so manny fail)

Hm ... is it because of the extra power?

(Once I had a 2008 FX35 for the day while my EX was in for service and I was somewhat underwhelmed.)

Hey again,The extra power and the shifting and the handling is the difference between the Ex35 and the Fx50! Believe me the Fx50 has an indescribable feeling when speeding up! Though the Ex35 is not weak. The power of the ex35 is great, it just suits it, i think more power on the ex is not necessary its just perfect the way it is! The Fx 50 is a sport car while the Ex35 is a lux crossover.Regards,Mitch

Hello all. Just brought home my shiny new Blue Slate EX35 down here in San Antonio, TX. I traded my 06 350Z Grand Touring in for it since we need a comfortable car for our growing family. I am really surprised how quick it goes quick. =) Lots of cool gadgetry, loving all that tech.

Hello,

I am about to buy an EX35, but I can't make my mind up on the color!I am hesitating between Blue Slate and Platinum Graphite (Blue Onyx and Diamond Graphite respectively in Canada). Either choice will be with wheat or stone interior depending on availablity. Any suggestion is welcome, and pics of a Platinum Graphite would be very helpful as they are very scarce on the net, and tend to change under different lightning conditions.

Cheers,-lance

Happy to have just taken delivery on a new obsidian black EX 35 journey with premium & style pkgs. First Infinity purchase for me-- although I have been responsible for 2 prior purchases by friends. With its wealth of electronics, what is the best procedure for avoiding battery drain when you go on vacation and leave the car at home? I gather the battery shouldn't be disconnected, so how long can the car reasonably be left unattended, without starting it? If it has to be started occasionally to preserve battery, how long does the motor have to be run before the next starting?Thanks in advance for answers to a question I never had to ask with my old (1991) Honda Accord!RMR

Hi all,

Want to thank you for the great forum. Decided to go ahead and register and hopefully can share experiences with my EX. Purchased used in May, Black Obsidian with stone (I think it's stone) interior. Premium/Navigation/All Weather Mats, Tint and roof rails.

Info on this forum has really been great, helped me to identify the TSB's for fuel pump and steering column - took it in last week, dealer was up to speed, had parts in place and made it very easy. Definitely ranks up there with service levels of Audi and Mercedes. (Lexus was above par, but not to these levels - IMHO)

Anyone even contemplating the EX versus the G35 - no comparison, but I guess depends on your individual taste. G is much more of a sport sedan, feel greater torque, stiffer ride. Wife has M35 and honestly like the EX better - performance, MPG, quiet, smooth ride.

Since I know the game that posts mean zip w/out pics - here's a few from the desert southwest.

Thanks for the welcome - tried to zerothread?id=324923 the pics under the "What color is your EX?" topic - not sure if these will stick (file size may be too large) - little different animal of how to post to this forum.

Hello, just joined this evening from Nashville.

Soon to be new owner of a Blue Slate/Wheat/AWD/PREM/NAV EX35 the day after Thanksgiving for the wife. She is coming from a 03 Corrolla so this is a HUGE step up. She is so stoaked about the keyless fob, bluetooth, heated seats, power and the list goes on and on. Found a great deal on one in Lexington, KY. Can't wait to pick it up. Wil post pic's this weekend
