2013 Infiniti JX35: Instant Paint Job
July 30, 2012
The menu choices on the Infiniti JX35's vehicle information display are the usual selections, such as Driver Assistance, Maintenance, Alarms, Vehicle Settings and Language.
And then there's something a little different: Body Color. We live in a world of advanced car technology, and the JX35 has more than its share of it, but can it really change shades like some kind of SUV chameleon?
Sadly, no. The selection just changes the color of vehicle that appears in the vehicle information display. You can choose silver, white, brown, red and couple other colors.Our car's actual color, the handsome emerald graphite, is not among them.
You might wonder why an automobile company would make this a menu option. I did. I expected to find some safety/alertness explanation in the owner's manual. Or at least an isn't-this-cool call out. Nope. We are left to ponder this feature on our own.
