 The rear latch door lock on my 2004 infiniti fx35 has suddenly become inoperable. i discovered this after i placed shopping items in the rear compartment and drove. i noticed the rear door was not closed after driving about a mile and had to pull over to attempt to close it. when i tried it would not close and the rear door lock compartment appeared to be stuck and keeping the door from closing. once i manually manipulated the lock on the bottom of the latch doot to open it, i closed the door and the door now will not unlock. after research i discovered this was a nissan part called the rear door actuator that stopped working. according to my internet research this is a very common and costly problem for nissan owners and sometimes occurs with multiple passenger doors for some owners. i am grateful i did not have my dog in the rear part of my vehicle as he likely would have jumped out of the open door while in traffic. also, nissan does not place key entry locks on these doors so now the only way to open it is to crawl into the back of the truck and unlock the emergency trunk lock. i have no other options than to get this repaired for what the dealer quoted at $560. it is concerning that nothing has been done with such a common problem. please do something as i believe this to be an expensive and substantial safety issue.

 I own a 2004 infiniti fx35 and suffer from what seems to be a common safety problem among other owners: the lock on one of my doors does not lock or unlock with the remote or the driver's side lock button! i must manually push the lock forward to lock it and back to unlock it. this started happening several years ago but only every once and a while, especially on hot days. now it is everyday no matter what the weather. many times i have locked my car with the remote, only to have my husband open the back door to get something and tell me that i didn't lock the car again. thank goodness it has been my husband, myself, or other family member, and not a thief entering my car! my most important concern is now the safety of my 18 month old daughter. i always lock the doors when i get in the car to ensure that no one can simply walk up and open the car doors. because of the faulty lock, the back passenger door never locks, thus leaving my daughter (who is in the backseat in her car seat) vulnerable. to date, no one has entered my vehicle unlawfully, thank god! but i feel that this is an extremely serious issue that must be addressed by nissan and infiniti. i also have problems with my side view mirrors and the bubbling of the dash, especially around the vents. however, the problem with my door lock takes priority, and from what i have read online, it seems only a matter of time before it happens to all of my doors! i informed the dealership where i purchased my vehicle and they told me that they would first have to do a diagnostic test to find the problem which would cost me $140. i would think that after all of the complaints about the 2004 door locks, they would know the problem. a safety recall must be put into effect to end this. i urge anyone who has the ability to remedy this obvious safety issue to do so as soon as possible before someone is unnecessarily injured or tragically harmed!

 3 doors on my 2004 fx35 will not open from inside or outside-this is a safety issue. first week in sept i tried to open back door to retrieve my books, etc and the door wold not open. i leaned in from driver side and noticed door was unlocked so i tried to open from the inside-it would not open,. my auto has only 46,000 miles on it. i took to dealer and he said he had never seen this happen before. he kept the car for 3 days and said it took them all day to open the 2 back doors. he said all for on my acculatos(something like that) failed and they replaced them at at charge or over $ 2000.00. this is a serious flaw in the auto if the doors can not be opened from the inside or outside. what if i had been in an accident and the doors could not be opend? i firmly believe this is a problem that should be addressed by the mfg and i should not have had to pay over $ 2000.00 for something that i did not cause. rarely as anyone ever rode in my back seats as usually i am a lone rider or driver in the infiniti.

 I am a 2004 inifiniti fx35 owner. i had a right front passenger door lock actuator become inoperable, so had it replaced about 3 years ago. and recently, the driver's side door lock actuator failed, replaced it for a cost of over $500. $303 for the part alone and $216 for the labor. i know the same part costs about $35 at an infiniti service in other countries. i searched on the web to see if anyone else has a same problem as me and was surprised to find that there are a number of people, both nissan and infiniti owners, have had door lock actuators all around the car (including the rear hatch) fail on them. i feel that i have been unjustly charged for this part and labor as i have seen the same part get replaced at an overseas infiniti service myself recently for a cost of $50 with $35 of it being the part price. why is it almost 10 times more expensive here? i am willing to go any distance to see nissan and infiniti fix this problem at their own cost without ripping their consumers off.

 Some or all door locks fail to function, with no pattern of which door or doors will do it next. this only happens when it is hot enough outside (approx 85 degrees and up) to make it hot inside the vehicle. this problem is all over the internet, with nissan's and infiniti's and approximate years 2003 through 2007. the posts that i have read date back to 2007.

 This is for a defect: i own a 2004 infiniti fx35 and my wife and i are about to have our first child, so we purchased a child safety seat that includes latch connectors (since the infiniti lists as having them, and since by law all vehicles were to include them since 2002). went to install the child seat and could not get to, or reach, the latch connectors. started examining around the seats to figure out what was wrong and quickly discovered that the latch connectors are installed incorrectly on my infiniti, they seem to be installed up-side-down making them a good two inches below the seat level (when they should be flush with the seat to properly align and secure the child seat). when the back seats are laid flat you are able to access the rear and underside of the seats, there you can see where the latch connectors are bolted to the frame of the car, and this is where you can see that they are upside down making them impossible to reach through the seat. i've also checked out a kia, honda and a ford, and in all those cases simply reaching between the lower-seat and the seat-back you can very easily find the latch connector and it is indeed flush with the seat, the infiniti's is a good 2 inches below that height. i went to the dealership and the service department didn't even know what the latch system was (at least that is what they said). not sure if it is all fx35's or even all infiniti's, but if you do manage to attach the child safety seat to the latch connectors, it will not be in the proper alignment and could very easily fail risking the child.

 The rear hatch mechanism on my infiniti fx35 failed and made the vehicle completely accessible to anyone who walked by. the dealer is charging $450 to repair it, but when i check the internet, it appears to be a common problem. this is suspicious and should likely be a recall due to the safety of the vehicle being compromised. items may fall out of the cargo area with this problem and cause accidents on the road. *tr

 My 2004 infiniti fx 35 door lock actuator for the passenger and rear door hatch will not open unless pressed several times and occurs all the time and i consider it a safety issue in a life or death situation, the dealership will fix the problem but at a cost to me of over 300.00 us dollars which is high price to pay when at this point in time economically is very difficult so i plead with nhtsa to consider it a recall because i am sure that i am not the only person with this problem.*tr
