2013 INFINITI JX JX35 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Looking for a car with 3 row seating that fits 7, including enough space for 3 children needing carseat/boosters, and 3rd row enough leg room for adults. Both Toyota Highlander and Acura MDX are nice but outdated. Almost got 2013 Pathfinder, but deal fell through last minute. Ended up with 2013 JX, 2 wheel drive, with premium, driver assist and theater package, at over $2K under invoice. Felt got a good value, considering Indinity badge, with nice features, and about $5K over top of line Toyota Sienna Limited.

Car is quieter than minivan, with better mileage (about 21.5 to 22.5 MPG) with 90% HWY. Await the crash test/safety rating.

Best Features

Nice and loaded tech/safety features; around view camera (takes a while to get used to); parking sensor (front & back) and power folding mirros very useful in tight garage. 2nd row seat that allows easier access/exit to 3rd row.

Worst Features

IMHO: Electrochromatic mirror with turn signals. longer passenger side wiper blade; illuminated overhead buttons; move driver memorized setting button to near door opening handle for better visibility; separate control for power folding mirror and door lock buttons further apart (often onfusing). Front passenger seat should have more seating arrangements and memorized button (at this luxury price). Make 2nd row seat memorized once preferred seating level is set, rather than resetting after each use. Raise height of 3rd row seat (? feasible). More front cupholders and front door storage space (holding takeout menu). Softer padding around shift gear for better comfort around Right knee.
