2013 Infiniti JX35: Fixed the Wind Noise
June 27, 2012
Last week we observed an unusual wind noise created by our 2013 Infiniti JX35 when cruising down the highway. We dropped it off at Santa Monica Infiniti. Well, as it turned out, we were mere days ahead of a TSB being issued for just this problem...
The service bulletin applied to one or both roof side molding assemblies. It explained that they could come loose at the front, nearest the windshield. The fix was to replace the entire molding. We called ahead and Santa Monica Infiniti ordered the parts prior to our delivery of the vehicle. In our case, both the left and right moldings were replaced. As expected, the work was performed under warranty.
While the JX was in the shop we requested an oil change and tire rotation. Severe service calls for the first oil change at 3,750. We were a little ahead of that. Overall, it was a quick and painless experience.
