The all-new Infiniti JX35 is a seven-seat crossover that almost does everything right when it comes to hauling kids, says Cars.com Family reviewer Courtney Messenbaugh. Unfortunately, Infiniti forgot to inject some fun into the almost-perfect family hauler’s driving experience. Courtney says its V-6 engine seemed underpowered during her weeklong test drive. One thing the automaker got right is the JX’s second-row seats. They easily slide forward — even with a forward-facing car seat installed — to create easy access to the third row.
