2013 Infiniti JX35: Looks Like An Infiniti...

At least from the driver's seat. But it sure doesn't drive like an Infiniti. Not the ones I think of, anyway. This is my own problem, of course, but when it comes to Infiniti I think of the G37, FX50 and M56, which are all very sport-oriented.

In contrast, the JX flops over almost instantly upon corner turn-in, while the steering is overboosted and unfeeling. And I wish it had a true automatic, not this CVT, which is too rubber-bandy.

Of course, the reality is that this is a new direction for Infiniti. And in terms of people-hauling and comfort, the JX gets it done. My prediction: They'll sell a lot of them. Even if it's not what I think of when I think of Infiniti.
