I also have an '05 FX35 with the Touring Package.
The leather on the outer side bolsters of both of my front seats are badly wrinkled towards the seatbacks and have a far rougher feel than the rest of the seats. The dealer actually pointed this out to me at less than 1 year and about 6300 miles. He didn't care either. Obviously, this was an 2005 FX defect on perhaps a small number of cars.
If we all let the Corporate Offices of Nissan/Infiniti know of our dissatisfaction maybe they will do something for all of us who deserve better.

I have the first year ('03) FX and went with the brown/orange color leather, partly because I thought it was distinctive and partly because the leather seemed a little thicker and higher quality. I have to say that my hunch was correct because after over three years and over 50,000 miles it shows virtually no wear. I use Lexol leather conditioner a couple times a year, and that's it. About the only thing on the interior that I thought was cheap-lloking and out of character for a "luxury" car was the plastic door panels - Infiniti definitely skimped on these.

My '04 FX45 seats were the same as you described.I looked at every FX seats that I could find and mine were the only ones that looked as you described.I took it to the dealer with 24K miles on it and they fixed it perfectly without a word.

T Thanks for the info. Please tell me who your dealer was and where they are located. They deserve kudos. If you know of any other people with bad FX leather seats, please let me know.

I just got an 2003 FX and want a navigation system. Has anyone added nav. to their car? Did you go through the dealer or a professional aftermarket place? Any suggestions would be wonderful!

My wife and I have an FX35 w/48k mi on it. I follow the recommendations called out in the owners maintenance manual. I feel that most dealer recommended maintenance are just a chance for the service writer to get an extra buck out of the customer. If it's not called for by the manufacturer than I believe it's not needed. The only issues we've had with the vehicle have been with the fuel tank sending unit. We've them replaced a couple of times and looks like they need it again. Per the dealer, it is a know problem in 03. No other problems, car runs like a bat out of xxxx and at a constant 80mph on trips still gets 21mpg. I only run premium fuel when traveling. Also, I switched to a pure synthetic oil, AMSOIL, and only change the oil every 20k. Dealer and manufacturer are ok with this so will continue to use. Did same with my QX4 and it was in top condition when traded in w/108k.... Sorry for the wordy post but love this vehicle........

Does anyone know how to reset the Tire pressure warning system warning light. I had a tire go low on my 06 FX45 and it tripped the warning light. According to the manual, once the warning light begins to blink, it will continue to do so even after the affected tire has been fixed. It further states to reset said light, you have to take it to the Infiniti dealer. Does anyone know how to reset this indicator because I don't have the time to get to the dealer for at least a week and I am easily annoyed with this blinking light already! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thx!

I had this similiar problems before, but I just put air in it and it resetted itself. However, I had to fix a flat another time at the Infinity dealership so they resetted, but I am curious to find out if anyone knows a do-it-yourself way. I understand your annoyance at this blinking light.
