Hello - I am leasing a 2005 FX 35 and I was told about a year ago from my Service Tech that ALL infinify's have a design flaw in the Condenser system that does not allow the water to drain, so bacteria is growing in the condenser when A/C or heat is on and does not evaporate .This is where the odor comes from. I was told to turn my condenser off 5 minutes before I stopped. WHATEVER. I did not pay $45,ooo to turn it off. They also attempted to put deodorizer in my condenser to help the terrible smell. We decided to get the car Air tested by Envirotech. My FX 35 has Legionella (legionairres diseae) and Cladosporium that causes respiratory disease and is an OSHA mold. Get your car air tested inside by a Mold, or air detecting Company. We are in the legal process of getting out of our leased since the car is a health hazzard. Infinity told us this is an issue with all FX and most all infinity since 2004. ASK your service Tech about this and get test results .It cost me $100 but my car is a danger to my family!!

My FX35 2005 was air cabin tested and my car has Legionell (legionaries disese) and Cladosprium that causes Influenz and other respiratory diseases. My Service Tech told me there is a design flaw in Infinity vehicles and the condenser does not allow water to get out and it causes bacteria and the odor. There is no way to fix this issue and it is a health danger. Get your car tested by an air quality company and let Infinity know your results. We are in the process of getting out of our lease!

We had a colorado company Environtech do the test. You can contact any air testing company (not sure what state you are in) we had to do this on our own and cost. Any company that tests for Radon or Mold can do the test. They usually come to you. Our Family Dr suggested we not drive the car. The Dealership is the one who told us this is a "design Flaw" We are supposed to get a response tomorrow. If not we have a Lawyer we are going to get involved. I would talk to your dealer about this issue. I do not know if every car would have this issue, but I am seeing this alot on this site. I will keep this site posted as we hear
#3263 of 3411 Tan/Tan vs Tan/Black interior
Apr 05, 2007 (9:22 am)
Hi I am looking at buying a used fx35 or fx45 with a tan interior and after looking at different options i noticed that the tan interiors differed. When you get the black leather, the top of the dash, control panel, and top of the doors is all black. When you get the tan, those pieces become a dark tan color that i dont exactly like. Here is an example: http://www.compassluxor.com/autotrader/04FX45GreyTan_4X404907/DSC00042.JPG Then i saw an fx that had the tan interior, but the dash, controls, and door tops were black, and this looked much nicer imo. Here is an example of that: http://wayzata-imports.ebizautos.com/shared/viewer.aspx?&iid=1480463&src=eBay&pi- d=10 I just wanted to know if this color combination had to do with the option choices
(no-nav: tan/tan, with nav: tan/black) or the exterior color, or just an induvidual interior color choice option. Thanks for the help!
