Hey guys, can you help me pick a Daily Driver?

Hey guys, was looking to get some opinions on this car for a daily driver. I'm looking at the 2009 FX35. The only con I can think of is the gas mileage, which is something I'm willing to overlook as it comes with 303hp.

Priorities:

4 Doors
AWD (To be driven all year round on pavement in the Northeast with the occasional snow storm)
SUV
Japanese (used car - looking for reliability)
Smooth and comfortable
Sporty
Car has to be drivable by my better 1/2.
Budget - High 20's, no more than 35k miles.


Something like this:






Comments or suggestions?

Sporty Japanese SUV <- way to narrow down the list there.

I think only the FX series meets that.

Koni Yellows/ Eibach Pro Kit/ TRD Bushings/ Hotchkis Sways/ Motul 660/ Hawk Pads.. More to come...
(-1.0 (F), -0.6 (R), 1/16 TO(R))

93 - RX7 (LS3 - In Works)
04 - IS300 5MT
01 - 911TT 6MT - Sold
95 - RX7 (LS1 - Self Built) - Sold
