Goodbye FX35, Hello Overland

Hey all,

I've been away from the Jeep Scene for about 4 years, as I owned two FX35's back to back. My wife and I have been on the hunt for a new SUV for roughly 8 months now, and I was able to hold out for the 2014 Overland. I'm so happy to say that I picked it up yesterday. I'll get some more pictures of the rig along with it's sibling, 2013 Chrysler 300 S V6 also in white. Thanks to all of you for the great information and for helping make the decision to buy the Jeep such an easy one!

John

Re: Goodbye FX35, Hello Overland

I always thought the FX35 looked sharp. For you 2 who have had them, what did you like and dislike about the FX35? Thanks.

Actually I'm about to do the same thing (FX35 to Overland). The FX35 has been really flawless for me. Not a single mechanical issue, fun to drive with a great growl, excellent dealer/service experiences.

But now I want something made in America, with a some more utility (size and ability) and a little more current (the FX35 is in need of a mid-cycle upgrade).

I second the above comment, my wife and I were looking for more utility as the FX35 is extremely limited on space. I had an 06' and a 10', both were fun as heck to drive, but in the end I wanted more practicality and we dont need all of the size that the QX56 brings to the table just yet. My experience with Infiniti service was second to none, and I will miss getting my car picked up and dropped off for something as little as an oil change. Also, I feel as though the forward direction of Infiniti is a bit cloudy with the recent announcement that they are renaming the entire lineup, and lack of technological advancements, especially when compared to Jeep, etc.

No way! I remember you! I was getting rid of my 05' Jeep for my first FX35 at that time. Great to see you are still around.

My 2003 FX35 has been a workhorse. When it comes to driving, it has been great. No major problems and almost 180k miles. Inifniti service has been amazing. Loaner cars for any kind of service.

One major problem has been cargo space and rear seat entry. Getting in and out of the back seat is probably the worst thing. Recently got a JX35. Pretty amazing with all the bells and whistles for under $55k. Just not enough power for my taste. Will be giving it up to my father when I get my hands on my GC SRT.
