We bought the JX as the family car.
Loved the third row, and the fact that we did not have to take the car seat out to get to the third row.
Also, even with the seats up, there was a small trunk.
The interior room is great, especially in the rear.
However, between the terrible CVT transmission, and the poor gas mileage, I doubt I would buy this again.
This isn't a performance car by any stretch, but don't want it to be.
However, there are times it barely gets out of its own way - this I blame on the transmission as it seems to be constantly hunting for the best "gear".
Just makes it uncomfortable to drive.
As for gas mileage, we are around 15... far below what we expected.
Third row, interior room, price
Ditch the CVT Transmission
