2013 Infiniti JX35: Top Five Qualities
December 06, 2012
I've spent a lot of time with our JX35 the past few weeks. Overall, I've enjoyed driving it. I was thinking about why I'd recommend it to a potential buyer, so here are my top five reasons why.
The right size: The JX should work well for familes with two or three kids. The third-row seating is roomy enough to be actually useful, yet the JX's outside footprint is still manageable enough for parking lots.
Nice highway drive: It's very quiet and comfortable. Multiple hours behind the wheel aren't a problem.
Features galore: Our JX has an impressive amount of features that can be useful or enjoyable. These include: keyless ignition/entry, heated/ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a power liftgate, 360-degree parking cameras and safety features like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-path detection.
Easy-to-use electronics interface: I did an earlier post on this, but mostly it's just simple to use.
Doesn't look like a minivan: OK, this last one is a little unusual. There's no question that a minivan is the ultimate family vehicle. But if you're one of those people who can't stand the idea of owning a minivan, the JX could work out nicely. It's the Nissan Quest's sharper, better looking cousin.
