#3374 of 3411 Re: fx dash defects...Urgent Solution required pls?

I have 2007 FX35. Bought new in Jan 2008 and with under 25,000 miles. The car was shipped to West Africa. Bubbles started showing up on the dashborad 6 months ago, on areas exposed to sun. It has spread so fast now that I am sad to drive my beautiful car.
Infiniti dealers are not near me and I can not ship the car back to USA for the repalacement.
I will be glad to have someones please tell me what I can do.
1. As I learnt on-line, many cars have the problem which is from the manufacturer and replacing the dashboard may not be the final solution as the bubbles can come back later.
2. What can I use to cover the bubbles up?
3. WHAT IS THE SOLUTION POSSIBLE PLEASE?

Just an additional confirmation from my dealer. They too spoke with Infinity and were told that a fix is being worked on and a recall will be made to fix the problem. Don't hold you breath.

How does one replace the LEDs in the tail lights? Does the entire assembly have to be replaced or can individual LEDs be replaced? The Owner Manual says see the dealer.

I have an 07 FX35 (with the sport package) and I have been working this issue with the local dealer and Infiniti North America since May 2009. The dealership tried replacing the actual in-dash speedo which didn't work. They then contacted Infiniti tech line and were told to stop work immediately. Since then I have filed two customer complaints with Infiniti NA and both have lead to dead ends. Basically a call from a customer service rep saying there is no fix and no estimated time frame for a fix. This is irritating, especially since my car is aging at an accelerated rate. If a speedo fix ever is released I am going to push hard for an odometer correction as well.

Interesting..I thought I saw replies on this board saying that Infiniti had finally owned up to this issue?

I'll chime in.since I made my decision based on what I read on this site.
I have an 08 fx35 awd sport..with 30k miles...factory RSA's were beyond done..and horrible in the snow even from the start. I went with the Hankook RH06...and love them. Much smoother ride, less jarring..less wiggle in cupped pavement, much quieter...decent in snow (and we got some snow this winter )..downsides..I think a little more sidewall roll then the stock RSA's..and maybe a little less dry weather stick. And for the price...I paid $860..all in (taxes, mounted, tps, disposal of old set) at Town Fair tire.. (RSA's would have been $100 more..each!) .I would highly recommend the whole experience.

I just turned in an BMW X5.. Considering an Fx35 however i'm having a little reservation.. I get the impression my BMW drives alot better and i'm wondering if i should stick with BMW.. Also, the FX seems like a female style car and I'm a male so that kinda concerned me since every single FX i saw on the street have been driven by females.
Any thoughts on comparing the X5 with FX35. I don't want to go down in car performance but i really do like the features of the FX and it's cheaper.
