Good All Around Vehicle

The 2013 Infiniti JX35 can be loaded with options. The one I purchased has all of them. The 360 degree camera is phenomenal for parking either in stalls or parallel. The adaptive cruise control works exactly like it should. The upgraded theater package is well worth it if you have kids in the backseat. The overall comfort and ride quality are the best I've experienced in an SUV. I've previously owned a QX56 and three Jeep Grand Cherokees. The JX drives more like a car. This vehicle doesn't feel nearly as top-heavy as other SUVs. Performance is lacking but is mitigated by improved mileage. I'm still getting used to the styling but it's wearing on me. The interior is well appointed and is very comfortable. The controls are within reach and are laid out well. This is my third overall Infiniti and I find it to have some of the best value for the money. The reliability is yet to be tested on this fairly new car but my experience with Infiniti's has been flawless thus far.

Best Car in Class

I recently purchased a JX 35 (Black interior/exterior). It is truly a great car. Drove the X5-nice but too small. Q7-too expensive. Acura MDX- lots of acceleration but not as refined as JX 35. Mercedes-nice but expensive for options. JX 35 is beautiful inside and rides fantastic. As far as exciting to drive, etc., I read all those comments and just don't see it in my day to day driving in sport mode. I don't drive the car on race tracks and it has more than enough power for day to day driving. Don't let any of the comments about CVT or power scare you. The car is great...go drive it. Liked it better than any of the options above. Great value for money spent and a luxury ride.

Most comfortable SUV I've owned!

Traded my 2007 Lexus GX 470 for the JX35 and I can't be any happier. I loved my GX, but the JX is much easier to drive and more comfortable (due to it being a crossover). My kids love the reclyning seats and room in the 2nd and 3rd rows. We looked at the Q7 and MDX, but the JX has all the new features and technology....360 degree camera. Infiniti was right on with this vehicle! :)

I have driven a lot of different cars in my life and this car is the most comfortable and best riding one I have ever been in and I have been in and had some expensive cars. Car has lots of options and priced very reasonably for what it is compared to others. My wife is not a car enthusiast but she fell in love with this car and talks about it all the time and that is not like her. I don't think you can go wrong with it

2013 Infiniti JX35 AWD

Overall it's a good vehicle, but here are the con's: -CVT transmission is lame. Very slow off the line unless you floor it. Same with passing. -For a $40k+ vehicle, it doesn't come with homelink for your garage door opener or a drivers side memory seat as standard equipment. Not sure if I made the right decision over my runner up, the Acura MDX.

I've had my JX now for 3 years, 48K miles. There is nothing I have asked this car to do that it hasn't been able to handle. I did get all the upgrades and don't regret it. Regular service performed at the dealership including the all the recalls - but I never experienced any symptoms related to the recalls. The car is smooth and rides very quiet. It is especially good in the rain, hugging the road tightly. OK in the snow. Very few problems. Brake pedal has a little more travel than I was used to in my Lexus, but no real problem. This is a 7 seater, heavy vehicle - it is not a sports car. That said, don't believe those that say the car is under powered or can't accelerate into traffic. That is bunk. The car is plenty powerful enough for a people movers - and is fun to drive if you want to switch to sport mode or manually shift it yourself. In fact, I LIKE the CVT transmission as it is smooth as silk and makes the car feel more luxurious than the jerking transmission in other vehicles. The best feature is the adaptive cruise control. I'll never get another vehicle without it. Mileage in mixed driving is around 20. On the highway, you can realistically get 24-25 on long trips without an issue (premium fuel). GPS screen switches to camera mode when parking, making it a snap to park the large vehicle. Still good life left on tires after 48K miles. With third row of seats down (which is most of time) you can still carry lots of cargo. Servicing the vehicles costs FAR less than what it took to keep the Lex maintained at the dealership. Only issue I had with car is the front camera came slightly out of alignment which caused some funky behavior of the collision avoidance system, causing seat belt to tension. Dealer fixed first try. Loaded, tax and tags, this car on the road was around 58K new. This one is a keeper.

Purchased the JX , looks great , inside is beautiful but the transmission and power is lacking to say the least. Not a fan of the a CVT transmission. Makes the engine rev high at unexpected times and is loud. Boggs down at 1100 RPM before picking back up. Had many SUV none lacking in performance to this degree. Test drive this many times especially on hilly areas. You should not have to sacrifice at this price point.

I have had my JX 35 since May. Driven it out of town and was simply amazed at how well it handled. Very comfortable and great on fuel. I traded in an Expedition. I purchased the Diamond Slate color, couldn't wait for the dealer to order the Emerald Graphite and didn't want to take a chance on the color. I have received numerous compliments everywhere I go. My granddaughter loves the DVD player and it is so easy to use. My husband and I are both tall. He is 6'2" and there is plently of leg room for him whether he is driving or a passenger. this was a good purchase. I had not even considered this vehicle initially. After reviewing vehicles online I decided to test drive. It far surpasses the Acura, Cadillac, Lincoln and Lexus counterparts. Plenty of power, not sluggush at all.

We just leased the JX with the premium package and really enjoy the great deal we received from Crest Infiniti (ask for Jon Bellamy). The car is stable at high speeds and quiet. We traded our fully loaded Odyssey Touring, outside of reduced cargo space we don't envision going back to another mini van. I will post another update after 90 days to see if my views change. Great car if you are considering the new Pathfinder this is a better option for a lease do the much higher residual value, your payments should only differ by $25 - $40 a month. The Infiniti Connect is also an added plus.
