2013 Infiniti JX JX35 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Review
With children reaching teen stage, the wife (aka “the boss”) finally decided that we’ve graduated from minivans. Basic requirements: cross-over, 3-row seating, leather and within $45K. Researched: MDX: Pros - Honda name, resale, handling. Cons – Value quotient, dated styling. Pilot: Pros – Honda name, resale, decent ride. Cons – Remember, I’m trying to graduate from driving a box on wheels! Honda with leather starts mid to high 30’s? CX9: Pros – Mazda name, sporty handling, great reviews. Cons – Outdated styling, minivan with long nose. Explorer: Pros – Styling, options, price ranges. Cons – Will top $40K with options. Resale value will exceed loan amount before first juice stain.
Favorite Features
Features / Amenities: Std features that may be optional on others such as leather, HID headlights, keyless start/stop, Bluetooth Technology: Standard features are too numerous to list Driving Dynamics: Probably the most German-like handling that I’ve experienced in a Japanese vehicle (firm but not harsh), quiet, stable. Efficiency: Around 20+ combined mpg, not bad for a 3 row suv Styling: Understated, but still distinctive (and no one will mistake it for minivan) Intangibles: Luxury nameplate, better warranty, loaner cars, oil changes for life (at my dealer) Overall, this vehicle mitigated the “Cons” for the other vehicles that we researched and was able to negotiate a fair price to boot.
Suggested Improvements
Leather may not age well. Needs more rubber for a vehicle this size, even upgrading to 20 inch wheels maintains the same tire width. Hard plastics on the dash. Homelink should be standard. Trunk space with 3rd row up is fairly small. Many small crevices in second row floor that will surely collect objects and dirt that will be difficult to clean.
