#12 of 21 Presold 25 ...

You could fill out a pre sale purchase with all the features you want on a jx with no money down and no obligation to buy ie just putting your name on a list... I wouldn't actually count that as sold ...
#14 of 21 A better choice over MDX?
Apr 12, 2012 (7:42 pm)
We have two young children (preschoolers), so considering to buy a MDX for having 3rd row seats. X5 is way expensive for our budget, so MDX looks pretty good. Many other families in our preschool own MDX. But, recently found JX, and now highly considering to buy JX.
I personally don't much care about driving performance, so less HP than MDX wouldn't be a problem. I love JX's latest features and roomy space. MDX is actually out dated and not beautiful to my eyes.
What about your opinions JX over MDX? Should it be AWD? or FWD is okay? I'm living in California.
I will buy around July. Hopefully, at then, I can get a JX with a decent deal. MDX's typical prices look like 5-7% off from MSRP.

The MDX is a nice car but cannot really compare in technology and lack of road noise like the JX. With two toddlers you will already have enough noise with out the added road noise from exterior traffic my husband has a QX56 and I have had an M45 , when pregnant with 2 nd child knew the m45 would have to go but the road noise while driving the Lexus crossover and the Mdx ... Couldn't do it , heard the jx was coming so I decided to wait ( 2nd child 7 months old!) and I'm so glad I did! The jx is very nice, clearest back up camera, best quitest ride inside cabin ( unless kids aren't napping ) , AWD best for wet road traction and hills/ mountain terrain

We traded in our 2005 MDX for the JX. We also considered another MDX, but it's just no comparison for the all the new technology and better use of space in the JX. The third row is perfectly comfortable for me at 5'6" when the 2nd row is moved up a bit in the JX. With the MDX, my kids outgrew the 3rd row seating around age 8 or 9, and then hated when they had to sit there.
Right now the best prices on the JX are $2-3K below MSRP, but you'll get more discount in July as they are starting to accumulate in the Infiniti dealer lots around here. MDX can be had for below invoice, so it's a better value, but not a better car.

I think the new JX blows the outdated MDX out of the water.
The true test will be next year when the new-gen MDX comes out. Then you will have a real battle between the two.
Infiniti has priced the JX aggressively so we'll see how Acura prices the next-gen MDX.
#18 of 21 "Auto leveling" suspension?
Aug 20, 2012 (2:45 pm)
Does anyone know if the JX has an "auto leveling" suspension? I don't see it mentioned anywhere, but since it has every other practical safety feature, I would hope that it would have this as well. My concern is, when the car is "loaded up" with people and luggage, the rear suspension will drop and the car will be tilted upwards. This would affect handling considerably.

I have had the JX since May and have had it loaded to the brim...no towing. Handling has remained steady and safe without any issues. The headlights are designed to be adjustable for load situations. I have not seen any offering currently or in the future for auto leveling suspensions.
#20 of 21 iPhone 5 Owners Beware
Dec 03, 2012 (3:32 pm)
I purchased a new 2012 Infiniti several months ago. When I upgraded my iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5, the Bluetooth in my car would not work. I contacted Infiniti corporate offices and was told their Bluetooth system will not work with their car at this time. In other words, they have not given any priority to compatibility with the new iPhone. My husband owns an 2011 Acura, and his iPhone 5 is compatible with his Bluetooth. Acura apparently has made it a prioirity!
