A Buyer’s Guide to the 2013 Infiniti JX35

Infiniti Jx35 2013

Designed for those who need plenty of seating capacity but don’t want to drive a minivan, the 2013 Infiniti JX35 hits the mark for luxury vehicles in its class. With innovations that chosen for their convenience and safety, this is one crossover SUV that deserves more than a second look.

Key Features

This SUV delivers great fuel economy in an engine that provides plenty of power for the class. The addition of Around View video, Backup Collision Intervention, Distance Control Assist and Intelligent Cruise Control all provide enhanced safety for everyone in the vehicle. With standard features that include a CVT transmission with Sport and manual shift modes and the Drive Mode Selector, the JX35 offers plenty of options for most drivers.

Changes for 2013

The Infiniti JX35 is all-new for 2013, and provides a welcome addition to the crossover SUV family.

What We Like

There’s a lot to like in an SUV that is packed with safety features and convenience, but the adjustable second row seating and convenient third-row access definitely stand out from the rest. You’ll also enjoy the Bose sound system that provides 15 speakers for concert-sound quality.

What Concerns Us

Like most SUVs with third row seating, if you’re planning on carrying a lot of cargo, you might be disappointed in the available space.

Available Models

The 2013 Infiniti JX35 is available in either all-wheel or front-wheel drive. Both options have a 3.5-liter V6 that offers 265 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. The all-wheel-drive option delivers 18/23 mpg city and highway, and the front-wheel-drive provides 18/24 mpg fuel economy, both of which are excellent for this vehicle class.

Major Recalls

There are six major recalls for the 2013 Infiniti JX35, including:

  • An incorrect occupant classification system could result in passenger airbag not deploying (released in 2013 and 2015)

  • An incorrectly installed hood release cable assembly, which could result in the hood opening while driving

  • Antilock brake system software could result in increased stopping distance on rough roads Malfunctioning occupant detection system could result in a permanent suppression of the passenger airbag which won’t allow it to deploy in an accident

  • A misrouted fuel transfer tube could prevent the float from dropping, which will result in a fuel reading that is higher than what is available. This could lead to unexpectedly running out of fuel while driving.

Common Issues

The most commonly reported issues with this vehicle besides those related to the recalls are due to the automatic braking feature engaging even when there are no other vehicles in front of the car.
