Our Year Is Up - 2013 Infiniti JX35 Long-Term Road Test

2013 Infiniti JX35: Our Year Is Up

May 23, 2013

2013 Infiniti JX35

Our long-term test fleet is in a constant state of renewal. One car leaves. A new one arrives. The latest to leave us is the 2013 Infiniti JX35.

After a year with the JX, we found it to be a reliable, enjoyable ride. We'll have a full wrap-up with all the details in a few weeks.

So, what's coming next? Well, I can't tell you everything because I like to keep some surprises. But I will tell you that we've acquired a new Volkswagen Passat and we're buying some exciting stuff coming soon.

What would you like to see join the fleet?

    Not the most exciting segment in the world but I think it's good for you to have a couple 3 row vehicles in the fleet. And now with the JX gone, how about the new kid on the block: Santa Fe. And also the 2014 Durango when it becomes available. Would also like to see the new Mazda6 but maybe wait for the diesel.

    I would like to see a Lexus IS350 F sport. I am curious how it stacks up against the ATS. As you already have a Lexus, how about a Range Rover? Then you can see how it stacks up against the Wrangler off road.

    What's up with the Jeep? Haven't heard about it in a while. No long term wrap up? Over 30K miles too.

  • My preferences, in roughly decreasing order: 328i Santa Fe (replace JX) Kia Forte (replace impreza. compare to dart) 2014 MB E-Class (replace GS 350 or Jag, lots of comparisons) Ford Escape (for when CR-V leaves soon)

    Glad to hear about the Passat. How about the new Boxster S to measure up against the 911?

    The Passat better be a TDI (preferably manual). The other models are no longer relevant.

    Motorstreet, the regular Passat sells very well. I certainly wouldn't object to the TDI, but I don't agree that the other versions are irrelevant.
