2013 Infiniti JX35: Road Trip Seat Comfort, An Alternate Perspective

May 6, 2013

2013 Infiniti JX35

Not all tucheses are created equal. The bossman Scott Oldham recently took our long-term 2013 Infiniti JX35 on a road trip and came back raving about the seat comfort.

Me, not so much. I found that the JX35's driver seat gave me road butt in less than two hours. It's the bottom seat cushion that's to blame. It's too flat and unsupportive, and it creates pressure points right on each cheek. Squirm, squirm.

For long-haul comfort a seat should conform better to the various curves, nooks and crannies of one's backside. Now you know.

    "For long-haul comfort a seat should conform better to the various curves, nooks and crannies of one's backside. Now you know." I got that uncomfortable TMI feeling reading this.

    ^Indeed. My judgement on seat comfort is that a seat with more supportive elements, as opposed to being flat, is almost always better. The problem is that there are so many different body types out there, and what is supportive for me may be constricting to someone else.

    agree- seats are way too flat and there is not enough travel to the seat bottom hight adjustments. Leather feels damn good and one might not find the seats uncomfortable during a 15 minute test drive... so before you buy one make sure you get ample time behind the wheel. This was one of several reasons why I chose to dump my JX last month.
