    We got our first JX last Friday...we have not made it available to sell until we get more - this way people can test drive it and see it. About 25% of all JX's that are inbound to our location are pre-sold (previous customers have put down deposits, etc.)

    I think you can expect to pay MSRP (maybe a small discount if you've bought from dealer before) till about June...once the dealers get some on the ground that last more than 2 weeks, they will start to discount a little.

    Infiniti launched the vehicle with awesome lease numbers and 1.9% financing up to 66 months! :D

    THanks for the posting! I went to the Houston Auto show hoping to see the JX. It was there but you couldn't get close to it. I am in the middle of my "research" phase for a car and have narrowed it down to the QX, GL 450, Land Rover LR4 and maybe a look at the JX. I'm really interested in how much room it has inside. I really wish it had captains chairs in the second row, but oh well.

    What would you say is the biggest driving difference (feel wise) between the JX and the QX?

    I test drove an AWD JX today. Its a nice car. They only have one and its not for sale. I have purchased my past Infiniti cars at this dealership so they let me take it out for 30 minutes. The tech in this car is unbelievable. We started negotiations on a model the was in transit and they would not honor the VPP price. They told me to wait until May when they expect to have more on the ground.

    I called four other dealers in the Chicago area and they are not honoring the VPP pricing as well. Bummer.....

    Please update this post if you find someone accepting VPP. That is very concerning given the fact that Infiniti, for the first time I recall, is allowing its customers to use VPP for a "hot" car on the market. I hope I don't have a similar issue when I look to purchase my JX next month. Anyone out on the forums have a suggestion to handle this, particularly in the DC area?

    What is VPP stand for?

    I was able to see & test drive car this weekend in Long Island, NY. Really nice car. Received following quote:

    AWD w/premium package
    36 months with 12,000 miles
    MSRP 48,720
    $3,270 down (includes 1st mth payment)
    $619/mth

    Was told money factor .00157 and residual 62%

    Does seem right? Is this is decent deal?

    Thanks for your help.

    I went to a different dealer today who honored the VPP pricing for the JX. I got a fully loaded JX;

    AWD, Premium, Deluxe Touring, Theater, and Technology.

    36 months with 15,000 miles
    MSRP 54,800
    $1,030 down (includes 1st mth payment)
    $720/mth

    They also assisted in getting me out of my G37x lease with 14 months left on the lease!

    VPP stands for the Vechicle Purchase Program. It allows you to walk in and purchase or lease a vehicle usually at invoice. Some models might have additional savings. If you search VPP, you will find the website. My company participates in the program.
  • dallasmandallasman Posts: 26
    Can you tell me where you got this deal? Thanks!
  • sajr4sajr4 Posts: 5
    Can you participate in VPP if you have not been an Infiniti customer before?
  • jddssc121jddssc121 Posts: 69
    is that a lease payment? seems like you didn't get the base MF rate...
  • coop73coop73 Posts: 8
    I did get the base MF rate. I had to roll in some of the negative equity with the early lease termination.
  • jddssc121jddssc121 Posts: 69
    ah... got it. Yuck, that sucks :(
  • coop73coop73 Posts: 8
    I had to do it. A G37 coupe with little kids no longer worked. I got the Emerald Green with the Java interior. It's a great combo. For the person who asked which dealership honored the VPP, it's Infiniti of Clarendon Hills, a suburb west of Chicago.

    Looking to buy a JX with premium package and drvivers assist package. Anyone buy a new JX and want to share pricing to buy? How much, if any, did you get off of MSRP?
  • goose01goose01 Posts: 6
    I signed an agreement for a jx AWD w premium, theater, and driver assistance pkg for 48.7k. Close to 3k off msrp. Really liked how it drove
  • raodenraoden Posts: 14
    Hi can you tell me the name of the dealership. Thx
  • You got a great price. Does it include the $950 shipping charge?
  • sewellgsmsewellgsm Posts: 775
    Infiniti (surprisingly) decided to honor VPP at the launch of the JX; however, dealers do not have to participate. Since the car is in high demand, they want the customers willing to pay normal pricing to get a chance to get the vehicle before they start to let the Infiniti/Nissan employees and their friends/family members get them at the VPP price.

    In my experience, 5 years as GSM at one of the largest Infiniti dealerships in the US, once supply starts to catch up with demand - probably this summer then all the dealers will start to honor VPP pricing.

    We (and many of the dealers in Texas) are honoring VPP, mostly because we got a large amount of JX allocated to us due to our high volumn of sales. We've sold 37 of the 40 we got in the first two weeks and now about 50% of our inbound units are sold.

    The JX is built in the US, so it only takes about 8 weeks to get one even if you custom order. So, the best thing to do is go to your local dealer and custom order one! Even at MSRP, this vehicle is a great Value!

    Remember what happend when the QX came out...they all sold for MSRP (or a modest discount for previous customers) for about 9 months or so...by the time supply caught up with demand and the dealers started wheeling and dealing - Infiniti had 3 PRICE INCREASES!! So, the MSRP had gone up 2-3k...but the dealers discounted $2-3k...and you ended up right back to the original MSRP!

    Wouldn't shock me if they raise the price on this JX soon.... :(

    Beaverton Infiniti. Portland Oregon.
    I worked with the sales manager and he basically said that they want to move cars so that they can get more/quicker
  • goose01goose01 Posts: 6
    That price included The destination and delivery fee.
  • Hi goose01,

    Congratulations on your JX, I am actively looking to buy a JX and appreciate if you can post the dealer name and city so it helps us negotiate price.

    thanks

    I just got back from a dealership and the salesman said the JX was excluded from the Infiniti 1.9% financing special. One of the original posts on the forum stated the financing was available on the JX for up to 66 months. Can someone please confirm which is correct? If it isn't currently available, do you believe it will be offered in the near future?

    Any insight provided would be appreciated. Also, has anyone else had any luck getting the car for less than MSRP?
  • I'm currently living in Atlanta, GA. But, will permanently move to SF bay area in August. My friend recommends that it's better to buy a new car in here than California, because it will be cheaper.

    But, as I will live in CA, I think it'd be better to buy car after the move for future maintenance or etc. (Transferring the car from GA to CA is paid by the company).

    So far, there's not many samples for the actual prices of JX, either in GA or CA. It looks like tax rates are similar to each other (Atlanta's Fulton county: 8%, Santa Clara 8.25%).

    What'd be your choice if you were like me? Thanks!
  • sanjaysdcasanjaysdca Posts: 269
    I would buy in CA
    cars are generally less expensive in CA.
    More dealers means they will be discounted earlier.
    Possibility of getting damaged/scratched in moving.
    generally you get better service @ the dealer you buy from.
    Also remember lemon laws are state dependent...if you buy in GA then GA laws will apply...might be difficult to deal with living in CA.....hopefully you won't have to invoke it...but just in case...first model year

    Any opinions on pre-paid maintenance packages or extended warranties. Just picked up my jx and spent 3 hrs haggling over a bunch of bs and only 20 min learning about our new car and checking it out. Not the best experience.
  • fushigifushigi Posts: 1,249
    They're great for dealer profit margins.

    Seriously, do the math on the pre-paid maintenance. Compare the cost of the contract v. the cost of buying the services as you go. If you save anything it'll be minimal. You might insulate yourself from price increases but you'll do so at the expense of having to pay for everything up front (or worse, finance it & pay interest) and you're locked in to just the contract providers to actually get the service. Which might be an issue if, say, circumstances force you to move or you find their service unsatisfactory.

    Keep in mind anyone can do the service during the warranty period. As long as the work is documented, i.e. you get receipts, warranty coverage is not voided.

    WRT extended warranties, they're just insurance policies that cover breakdowns. I've had them before & have gotten my money's worth but I've also had them and not used them at all. The common advice around here is to not buy the EW. Instead, stick the money in an account and use it to pay for any maintenance that the EW would otherwise cover. Unless the vehicle is a maintenance nightmare or you're unlucky enough to suffer a major breakdown - trans or engine replacement - you'll have money left over.

    Infiniti's come with a pretty decent warrant as it is. 6 yr/70K powertrain. Their EW extends that to 8 yr/120K miles. So whatever the price you're not really extending coverage all that much.

    We traded in our one year old QX56 for a JX35. I gotta say.... it's a nice ride and very roomy inside. I'll miss the power of the QX but not the gas mileage. It's my wife's daily driver anyway, primarily used for chauffering around the kids. It came with the premium pkg, theater pkg, touring pkg, tow pkg, and roof rails.
    We got the VVP pricing. The sticker was $52,700 and paid $48,500. We live in SoCal and was very pleased with this dealership-Orange Coast Infiniti in Westminister.
  • OK, as of today, it looks like if you can get a 5-7% discount off sticker, you are doing well. With that in mind, I'm ready to contact some SoCal Infiniti Internet Sales Depts for a quote on an JX35. But getting the email address for the ACTUAL Internet Sales guy is hard, as the receptionists simply forwards the call onto Sales, and then whoever answers in Sales says "That's me!". BS. I want to go around these guys. Anyone have any tips/lists about getting correct email address/contact info? Services like Edmunds that are supposed to do this for you only list two dealerships, and I want 5 to 8. Other advice?
