2013 Infiniti JX35: Leave It In Sport, Too

July 31, 2012

Last night was my second time in the JX. The first -- a simple home-and-back commute -- left me thinking of the JX as the big, soft, slow-responding three-row SUV that it is. Last night, however, something was different. Small prods at the throttle actually produced a response. Not a big jump, mind you, but a response.

It wasn't how I remembered it.

I discovered this morning that the previous driver left the JX in Sport mode. Thank you, Carroll. This is a pleasant surprise going into a long journey.

This big bruiser is different in Sport mode. You don't need to plan as far ahead to pass or dig into the throttle nearly as much. Push the throttle and the JX responds. It's nice.I plan to leave it there just like many of us did in the long-since-departed Infiniti M56.
