    There are dealer incentives on 2004 FX35s that can add up to $1500.
  • That is too high; I bought the two wheel drive version of this car (same packages and features)in April for $38K in Southern Cal.

    Is anyone aware if Infiniti is planning on coming out with a hybrid version of the FX35? Any concerns of purchasing an Infiniti FX35 then having a severe depreciation due to inferior mileage compared to newer hybrid versions that may be introduced? Comments or insights on whether this is on the drawing board?
  • wibblewibble Posts: 569
    No plans at the moment. Infinitis plans for their image is performance based - RWD or AWD, high power output, firm ride, etc. Hybrids really don't fit into that vision. Also, when you look at the premium that hybrids command ($4000 to $5000 in the case of the Ford Escape), that difference can buy an awful large amount of gasoline.

  • If you are looking for an '04, not is the time to buy! The 05's have just started arriving at dealers and they are running great sales on all the old 04's. You should be able to get at least $1000 off invoice if not more. I've gotten some quotes for 1600-1700 off invoice. There are incentives to the dealerships for up to 1500 off the 04's. So now is a great time for an '04. If you want an '05, I cannot answer. My dealer said it would be a few months before they had real good deals on them.
  • wibblewibble Posts: 569
    The question is, do you buy now when there are still plenty of 2004 models left so you get a good price and a reasonably deal or do you wait until Jan/Feb and get an even better deal but less of a choice? If getting a rock bottom price is the most important thing to you and you are willing to take whatever is left over then wait until the new year. You might save an extra $1500 to $2000.

    P.S. Please don't use CAPS. It's hard on the eye and is considered to be the equivalent of shouting.
  • What kind of pricing has everyone been quoted on the 05's? I got a quote from my dealer for $1700 over invoice. I have not idea if that is good or not. I can get an '04 for $1700 under invoice. With the price increase for the '05s that's about a $4000 difference. I really like the cosmetic changes in the '05 and the difference is probabaly made up for in the 1 year of depreciation I'd take immediately for the '04. Any thoughts? Any better pricing on the '05s?
  • wibblewibble Posts: 569
    If you can, wait a couple of months and prices will settle for the 2005 models. Last year in January, a 2004 could be had for $100 to $200 over invoice. There doesn't seem to be any reason not to expect the same this year.
  • I've been to several dealers in the New York City metro area (and called several others). Not one is willing to sell a 2004 FX35 for less than $500 over invoice. Where and how is everyone here getting price qoutes that are well below invoice?

    Thanks
  • wibblewibble Posts: 569
    Depends on what part of the country you are in. Here in the Pacific North West you're lucky if you can get a 2004 for less than MSRP. In areas of California, Texas, Florida, etc. you can get an '04 FX35 for well under invoice.
    If you fell like taking a little drive, try Quirk Infiniti up near Boston (Braintree, MA actually). They have a very good reputation for low prices.
  • I just got this quote for a used Infiniti FX 2003 with Premium/Tech/ DVD/ 20 Inch Chromes/
    25K Miles. The price is $33,500. What do you guys say? Is there any chance to negotiate? Since it has 25 K and the tires were kinda worn out, I guess they would require replacement. What would this cost me(to replace all the tires)?

    I am even looking at New 2004 FX with just Touring. What should I be expecting to pay for the new 04 FX ? (In the Minneapolis area)
    Any help would be appreciated.

    not a bad price for an 03 I have the same car and would like to get 32 for it but mine is RWD. Try to get him down to 32 as trade in on it is about 30k right now. also tires run 800+ tax even if you stick with the goodyears. I going with toyo proxies and I am at 26k and need them bad.
  • I'm looking at an offer of 47,590 in Pgh. for an 04 FX 45 with Prem and Tech pkgs. That's -$37 vs invoice. I understand the incentive to be 1500. Should check dealers in east PA or NY? Does anyone know a good one, like Willow Grove? This doesn't sound quite right need advise, like ASAP, Thanks
  • If your looking for ASAP advice, then your at the wrong place. It's been 2 days since your post. Do a search.

    hello folks. i am new to this club. i followed all the discussion with great interest. i thank u all for helping me decide on fx35. i bought 2004 fx35 AWD ,black exterior/graphite interior plus tour. pkg + splash guards + cargo area protector for 1600 below the edmunds invoice. bought it from Serramonte infiniti, Colma, near San Francisco; nice people. i also traded my 93 ford Excort Wgn (130000 miles) for 500 ( i thought the car was in fair shape); So i was able to decrease the price by 500 more (overall 1650 below edmunds invoice) i hope it was overall a fair deal (well the cat is out of the bag anyway); i refused everything else they offered.

    i like the 'sporty ride' experience, different than other cars; my wife although says that the ride is way too bumpy in the back seat ( i did not buy the sport pkg); well but she won't be driving it as much.

    Somewhere in the discussion it was mentioned that the tires wear out quickly; is that true; also i would like to know if there are any dealership selling the extended warranty at a cheaper price.

    i thank u all once again. any suggestions welcome

    sorry, one correction to the message # 653; i paid 2100 below invoice (including the trade-in) and not 1650 as mentioned in that message.
  • normally I wouldn't post something like this, but since they were such obnoxious jerks, i consider it their own fault.

    I call Coleman Infiniti in Bethesda, MD and offer $1000 under invoice on an 04 FX35. The manager immediately laughs, then starts screaming about how I offended him. he tells me how ridiculous I am for even asking.

    He goes on to sas I must be desperate because I called all the way from Virginia (this proves his ignorance as Bethesda is 10 miles away from Arlington, VA)

    He continues saying NO ONE in the entire coutry got that deal, and everyone on this website is a LIAR.

    He told me that he already has 05s (3 of them) and the 04s will not last. (more proof of his ignorance because if the 04s were so valuable, why would Infiniti have to give him a $1500 incentive?)

    This was totally unprovoked by the way. i just said "hey, don't get offended, if you have to say no- just say no" and politely hung up.

    stay away.
  • "I see said the blind man"

    so... 10 minutes later another salesman called me, saying that he overheard the manager screaming into teh phone, and that was the assistant sales manager. he said he called the actual sales manager and guess what "just for me they will do the deal for $1000 under invoice"!!!

    Talk about good cop/bad cop. So I guess now I'm supposed to feel special that I got this great deal and they came to my rescue from the mean assistant sales manager.
  • I wouldn't settle for that. They have the $1500 incentive so I would not settle for anything less than 1500 under invoice on an '04. I got lots of quotes for 1700 and 1800 under invoice in VA, MD, PA, and NJ. Keep looking if he won't go 1500 under!

    $1000 under invoice for an 04 is a rip off. I have been offered 04s for $2000 to $2300 below invoice. I even have 05 offers at invoice.
  • Anyone have any recent experience with leasing a 2004 versus a 2005? Any comments? Should I expect the same pricing on a lease for the vehicle? I am looking at a 2004 with tour, tech. (perhaps) and sport here in Atlanta. The dealer I am working with has about ten 04's left and has gotten 05's on the lot. However there is a dealership in the burbs that has about 40 04's with 05's on the lot. Maybe a better deal there? Any comments would be appreciated.
  • Yes, I just leased an 04 with tech and touring. (I am the one who posted above about the terrible buying experience)

    My cap cost was 39,255 ($1000 under invoice) for 42 months. Only $99 documentation fee. Bank fee was $550. Money factor was .00178 (4.2% APR not bad).

    My monthly payments are $512 per month, but that is with rolling the tax into the monthly payment to lower my initial out of pocket expenses. if you pay tax up front, mothly payments should be around $480 I think.

    When I left the dealer swore on the holy bible that the $1500 could not be used for the lease. Of course I don't believe them, but another dealer told me this also.

    Just bought the 2004 Infiniti FX 35 with Touring, Tech and Sport Package, brilliant silver with black leather. Paid exactly $1,500 under invoice. Awesome price, awesome car, awesome dealer (Fletcher Jones-Chicago). Dealt with a very nice yet professional young woman but Edmunds will not allow me to provide her name so...

  • to my understanding , there is a 6.3 in info display monitor in the ones that dont have navigation, what is displayed in the info display monitor?

    tnanx in advance
  • clpurnellclpurnell Posts: 1,087
    It has radio information (RDS info if station transmits) climate control information. trip computer information and a variety of other features it is almost exactly the same as a Nissan Murano without nav screen.
  • Worked out a deal for 04'FX35 with the "Internet Mgr" with $1k adjustability for condition of my trade to be determined when I get there. Drive 4 hrs, I get some other salesperson but does have my paper work. He comes up with $7K MORE NEEDED! Brings in Sales mgr. he says OK $4K MORE! I have copies of emails and: HERE IS THE PRICE! Answer: "We don't know how he (the internet sales mgr.) got those no.s, want to buy an 05 for just a little bit more?". So much for "internet sales" that will only happen when we order direct from infinity web site and drive car off boat. So much for car salesmen; where do they get that bad reputation? So much for an agreement with a deposit made and reproducible nos on paper. Would like to complain to Infinity if I knew a good address. Also, need good dealer in PA, NJ, NY, VA area to start from scratch with. Ideas?
  • May I ask where are you coming from? "lots of quotes for 1700 and 1800 under invoice in VA, MD, PA, and NJ" Looking for a good dealer now out of PA since PA dealers won't deal that well. If you have "lots" of experience how and where? Thanks
  • Hi, Would you mind sharing what was total down payment.
