NHTSA Launches Investigation of New Infiniti JX

Auto braking system may inadvertently activate.

by on Aug.01, 2012

The Infiniti JX is the luxury marque's first 3-row, 7-passenger crossover.

Federal safety regulators have launched an investigation into reports that the emergency braking system on the new 2013 Infiniti JX crossover may activate inadvertently while driving, bringing the vehicle to a sudden and complete halt.

For the moment, at least, the issue is under investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is not necessarily going to trigger a recall.  Infiniti parent Nissan said it is aware of the problem and looking into it on its own.

The JX is Infiniti’s first 3-row, 7- passenger crossover-utility vehicle and is loaded with a variety of luxury features and advanced safety equipment.  That includes a driver assistance package with so-called intelligent braking assist that can, if necessary, bring a vehicle to a complete halt if it senses the driver failing to slow down when an obstacle is spotted ahead.  The system is capable of bringing the JX to a complete halt.

Infiniti is betting the styling of the new JX crossover will help it stand out in the CUV crowd.

With the upcoming launch of its 7-passenger JX crossover, Infiniti hopes to make up for lost time.

The upscale arm of Nissan Motor Co. has long been an also-ran in the luxury market but has been gaining significant traction, in recent years, as it expands its line-up.  Getting into the 3-row crossover segment will put Infiniti on a lot more shopping lists, company officials suggested during a preview in Pebble Beach.


The launch of the Infiniti JX is still some months away, but the event offered a good look at what was officially described as a “concept” vehicle, but don’t worry if you like what you see, hinted Nissan’s corporate design chief Shiro Nakamura, saying, “It is almost identical to what will be in Infiniti showrooms less than one year from now.” (more…)
