2013 Infiniti JX35: Service, Windshield and Recalls Part 2
September 20, 2012
A few weeks ago we told you our 2013 Infiniti JX35 was off to the dealer for routine maintenance, a new windshield and recall work. What we didn't tell you was how the visit went. That was because the paperwork sat on my desk and, well, I dropped the ball. So here is the recap...
Service: The 7,500-mile maintenance went off without a hitch. And due to a clerical error, we weren't even charged for it. Infiniti owns this car. As it turned out, the dealer had initially billed them for the $47 oil change.
Windshield: New glass was surprisingly affordable for the JX. The dealer called in a third-party installer at a cost of just $361 to us. A seal for the windshield was not sent in the first shipment, which ulitmately equated to 2 days out of service. Still, this cost beat the $1,300 we paid for new glass on our long-term M56.
Recalls: Both campaigns, for the fuel tank tube and IBA reprogramming, were completed.
Total Cost: $408.29
Total Days out of Service: 2
