2013 Infiniti JX35: The Benefits of Auxiliary Climate Controls
January 24, 2013
When it comes to luxury vehicles, it's often the little things that make a difference. A good example is the rear seat climate control setup in our JX35. As you can see, it's nothing particularly fancy, but it is there. There are plenty of luxury crossovers that don't go this far, so the rear passengers are left at the mercy of those in front.
It may sound trivial, but after driving carpool on a few cold mornings, the ability for my rear passengers to leave the heat cranked up well after I was plenty warm up front earned some high marks from the peanut gallery.
If I had to complain, I would only say that I wish the front seat controls were so simple. Obviously, there's more functionality involved, but it takes time to get used to where the ventilation controls are in relation to the more obvious temperature buttons. A small complaint, but one I've noticed more than a few times.
