2013 Infiniti JX35 Long Term Road Test


2013 Infiniti JX35: Blind Spot Warning

May 14, 2013

2013 Infiniti JX35

Our long-term 2013 Infiniti JX35 warns us of side-approaching traffic by flashing a blind spot warning light near the driver-side mirror on the inside of the car.

I find Infiniti's system is a more effective alert for me than some other cars. It pops up in my peripheral vision more so than the type that lights up on the actual side mirror outside of the car.

Our 2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged does this on the mirror and I only notice the flash if I am trying to change lanes or when I glance at the side mirror. So does our 2013 Cadillac ATS. Some may prefer this method as less intrusive.

Which warning system do you prefer?

    Wait a minute...does this thing flash EVERY TIME someone passes me?

    Yes. An as an added bonus, it flashes every time you pass someone else.

    I definitely prefer the mirror set up. I don't want to know its there until I am actually using it.

    This isn't an issue since I was taught how to drive. So my preferred option is an un-ticked box, thereby saving me $1000-$1500. To answer the question you actually asked, I would definitely prefer something unobtrusive, that wouldn't detract from my driving unless I was actually merging.

    I also like the fact that should the mirror be broken, it won't be as expensive since it won't have embedded led's in it.
