You knew they were changing the names of all of their models in 2014.
Infiniti is changing the names of their cars and SUVS. Instead of an alphabet of letters like, G's, M's, Jx's -all cars will start with Q proceeded by a number and all SUVs will start with QX proceeded by a number.
This means, anyone buying an Infiniti now or before now will have the old nomenclature on their car. So if I decide to buy the 2013 JX35, by the end of this year it will be an old name because the JX35 will become the QX60. The actual model won't change at all for 2014, just the model name.
This sucks because I don't want to get a car that will be considered "old" when I just paid so much for it. Would this name change mean anything to you or would you still buy the car now? Or wait for the 2014 new name model?
by OrientalLilyJanuary 11 at 11:08 PMUmmm, I'd likely buy it anyways. It's still the same vehicle. I would actually like the fact that I had the last production year model. Might be worth a little extra when it's time to upgrade again.

My parents bought a 99 Chevy cavalier. They loved it. So when it got totaled they wanted another one but they stopped making the cavalier in 05 and started the new Cobalt line. It was mechanically the same car as the cavalier, but different chassis and name.
They are now driving a car that has no working: gas gage, rpm gage, heat gage, radio, keyless entry, car alarm/panic alarm. That's not considering the laundry list of stuff the warranty paid for before it ended AND what my parents have paid to fix.
Chevy doesn't care. They refuse to recall it. Why should they? They don't care what bad rep a car they are no longer trying to sell has. If it was a cobalt in 06? Of course they'd fix anything to get you to recommend the car.
Theres nothing in it for them to stand behind the car. That's no different with other manufacturers.
Go with a model they are going to keep making or you may be buying a half-assed piece of crap and be stuck with the repair bill AND a car payment.

I wish I had your problems.
by FL2AKJanuary 11 at 11:19 PMYou are over thinking it.

Why would it matter? The car starts to depreciate the moment you drive it off the lot anyways...
