For those of you still on the fence about QX60 have you considered a JX35? Besides the Hybrid plant the JX35 and QX60 are identical twins and considering the JX is on its way out one could find a sweet under MSRP deal for a year old (not even) JX35. Some of the dealers around here already have JXs going $5-7 grand CAD off asking, a good negotiator could probably stretch that even further.

It'll depend on how long you plan to keep it. The JX35 could end up having a significantly lower resale value, especially in the near term. As a one-year model, many potential buyers could forget it exists. Or not. For a similar situation, compare resale values of the 2006 Lincoln Zephyr and 2007 MKZ.

I keep my cars until the wheels fall off. I'm really not worried about resale values. Plus the JX has a better tranny than the QX60, less issues anyways.

I agree with mkaresh. There is no doubt the JX might have lower resale value. If I was selling my JX I would probably rebadge it as a QX60.

The new transmission also has some advantages: better performance and fuel economy. But I can see how driveability issues might more than cancel these out (haven't experienced them in the Pathfinder and QX60 I've driven).

rebadging it won't help, what matters is what it is on paper, which will be an Infiniti JX, you can't escape that.

Oh I know but if I was trying to sell it. I'd post it as a QX60 / JX

It's really not fair how the JX only had 1 year run.
I wouldn't say it's not fair, it won't make that much of a difference. Buying a car, no matter what it is, you will always be losing, price on it is always depreciating.

If you want to get a deal then i would say go for the JX. If you are worried about resale value, or if you just want the newest coolest infiniti I would say you should go for the QX60. Really they are the same vehicle though, right? Literally the only difference is the badge.

For now there seems to be little difference between the two but as time goes on and we find out more about these vehicles and the word gets around on what year is the best to buy, that will determine which will hold their value better.

well it'll be interesting to see how depreciation on the JX compares to the QX60 of the same year.

no one ever wants first year production cars unless they just want the cheapest model they can find, so i can see JX35's not holding their value as well.

FYI,

If you can find a new JX in stock right now, it will have the exact same transmission and fuel economy as a QX60.

If you can save some $$ and you like the features/color choices available, I'd make a deal on a JX. If it makes you feel better, work out a deal where the dealership throws in a set of QX60 badges (queue 'we don't need no stinkin badges' video clips).

Only people worried about depreciation are lessees. Considering your lease payment is calculated mainly by the residual value of the vehicle you are returning. I buy and drive them into the ground. What resale LOL

@sinecure as for badges I don't want to badges is right. I'd rather be exclusive in my JX than blend with the crowd of QX60's. When they ask I'll tell em its JDM ;)

What he said!

Just saw a JX being test driven in Maryland and I could tell the salesman was testing lane departure intervention. Got a funny look from them when they saw we were from Washington state. Love the JX.

recalls and all the other issues with the PF's and QX60's are making people ask why bother even buying one of these. There was just a recent brake recall.

If you look at many new cars, they too have a lot of recalls. I think in today's world of technology, we are all becoming more aware of issues with products and its easy to report them to organizations such as NHTSA. For the most part, manufacturers are taking care of problems as they are identified. My wife and I are on our 7th Nissan product and still feel confident in thei quality.

Is there a cut off manufacture date for this? I mean, there is a 2mpg difference between jx and qx60. Am I safe to assume a late production jx will get 20/26 like the qx60? Or still 18/24 per jx spec?

Isn't the jx cvt more bulletproof than the new xtronics cvt in the qx60 and pathfinders?

Also, I noticed Infiniti threw in the home link mirror as standard equipment for the qx.....

the JX CVTs did seem to be less problematic compared to the pathfinder. But we dont know yet, I haven't heard of any QX60s with problems yet.
