    I got a quote for 300 over invoice for any FX35 AWD's. Is this worth considering?

    Or should I find those 2005's that are going for 3500 under invoice? I did manage to find one but in CA. And I live in OH, hahah.

    One thing to note is that the navigation system for FX's are not impressive compared to that installed on Acura MDX's that has voice activated commands and touch sensitive screens. I would dare to say that FX navigation system are a JUNK! heheh. So my choice would be to get the one without the tech package and get a Garmin nav. :)

    Carman where are you? Could I get some help on FX35 here? hehe :)
  • I'm looking at 06 35s and 45s - my experience - 45s in Houston, where all dealers have this mandatory 2yrs "free" maintenance - $1,000 over invoice is the best you can do. I'm sure that 35s can be had for less. $500 over invoice feels achievable, though I haven't specifically tested it. I think in other spots without the maintenance, Dallas, Austin, lower pricing may be achieved. 45s are tough in Texas because almost nobody gets one, so, inventory is slim. Most of the inventory is 35RWD, and, that is where best pricing will be found. I definitely believe it is invoice plus some number under $1,000 now.

    Does anyone have information on when the 07's are going to be available? I am still holding out on my purchase hoping they will improve the nav system and put an auto hatch release in the car. It amazes me that nearly every crossover has auto release and the FX still does not.

    This vehicle must be dead. Is anyone interested in purchasing FX35? If nobody really cares, doesn't that mean that the vehicle price should come down? I have been checking my local deal stock and it doesn't seem they are changing much. CARMAN, are you reading this post?

    Touring, Hands-free, Sports package
    Mud guard, Roof Alum Cross Rail Bar, Cargo Protector

    Is this a go or no go? Someone please comment? :) :cry: :P ;) :surprise:

    I loved it (03FX45). Got it with a $7200 discount and 1.9% financing. After 34,000 miles I wanted something more economical (I averaged 16.2mpg) so I just traded for a Toyota Camry Hybrid. Basically I was able to trade even and I must say out of about 30 new cars I've owned the FX has been my favorite.

    However I wanted an economy car and I just didn't need 3 vehicles. Hope whoever gets it enjoys it as much as I did.

    I just purchased a 2006 FX 35 with touring/tech/and hands free pkg for $100 under invoice ($46260 MSRP). My friends at Infiniti of orland park, IL treated me very well. Would highly recommend them. Is anyone one doing better price wise?
  • I ended up buying a FX35 RWD tech, touring, handsfree, sport, etc. I live in Houston but I ended up buying from Austin. They were ultimately willing to deal and they had the vehicle I wanted. Houston seems to be a tough market price wise because all the dealers add in "free" maintenance for 2yrs. I think it's a scam and I didn't want it. Once you get them off the "discount off MSRP" to invoice plus, then they want to add in $750 for this maintenance. Ultimately I got one down to $350 for it, but, I still didn't want to pay that. Dallas and Austin markets don't force that maintenance on you, so, they seem to be a little more price competitive. Ultimately Austin gave me a reason to go up there. In price I was a little over invoice. I would highly recommend them. They made sure everything ran smooth and I was out quickly.

    I see a lot of posts referencing the "invoice" price. My question is has anyone had success negotiating from the published invoice minus the manufacturer's "holdback". CR states it's reasonable for dealers to expect a 4 - 8% over that price. Any luck?

    got a quote from a local dealer on a 05 FX35 with 8300 miles on it. The car is diamond graphic metalic exeterior, black leather interior and is equiped with everything except a DVD entertainment system. The Dealer gave me $36000 plus tax and fees, which come to a total of $38,000. The car is a good condition.

    What u guys think.
    Thanks

    Hey guys

    Long time reader, first time post..

    Lease ran out on the FX 35 Black w Brick/black...spousal unit wanted a 45 so we negotiated a new 45 with tech package, roof rails ( undecided if i like em yet), run flats, air deflector for sun roof, for no down and 685 month for a 36 at 12 per year.

    hte 45 runs more smoothly than the 03 35. Much better on sharp bumps and the V8 is really different. More Jaguar S type feel thanthe 35 to me. Feels more smooth and like the motor is loafing, whenthe 35 was whirring. Not sure which I like the most yet.

    Any one have experience with the Potenze run flats? Thanks for this baord I have used it alot and felt I should post since I use your posts for information.

    New 45 is black with the Expresso interior...really nice.

    Will post some pics of both soon...

    Hi All:
    Looking for an FX35 AWD w/touring and hands free (I want a base model w/no options but they don't exist and I don't have 3months to wait on a special order).

    Salesman at the Bethesda dealership offered $500 over invoice but we're not going for it at that price. I told him so and asked him to check w/manager about a better price. He said he'd call me the following day but didn't. I'll give him till Friday and if he doesn't respond I'll move on. Any comments?

    Anyone think a rebate will come up in July? Any comments about the price, anyone?
    Regards,
    Deanie

    Hi,

    I own an 2005 FX35 AWD (Liquid Platinium/Black) with 23500 miles on it. ALthough it is an amazing car, I want to sell it because it is too big for me. I am single and still a student and I want to get a 2 door sport car instead. Any idea of how much I should ask? The car is in mint condition with sport/touring/technology package and has splach guards and cargo area protector.

    Thank you ahead of time.

    so i've gotten this offer. fx35 rwd w/touring package for 100 over invoice
  • A good afternoon FX fans:

    I am in Toronto Canada - poised to purchase a FX35

    Does anyone have recent pricing info in the Toronto or Ontario area?

    The base FX35 (without the tech package) is $55,450. Does anyone have the dealer invoice price on this?

    Do those companies like CarCostCanada, really have the dealer invoice or are they spoofing customers?

    I figure the hold back of 1-2% they will get is sufficient profit - so I will offer the dealer invoice.

    ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED

    Kindest Regards To All

    From what I'm reading it appears this was a good deal? Certainly any dealers with 2005 new vehicles left are aggressive to move them from the lot.

    I realize dealers have to treat this like a new car, but unless you plan on keeping this car several years you will have an immediate 2 years depreciation on the 05 leftover when the new ones come out in a few months.

    I bought a leftover 03 FX45 several years back but I was able to get $7200 discount and 1.9% financing. Even with that I had $11,000 in depreciation when I recently traded it. Had I paid MSRP (like all of them were selling for 6 months before I bought) I would have lost $18,000. With the deal I had I can't complain about my ownership experience.

    Overall though the FX45 was one of my favorite cars of all time, and I've owned a lot. I decided to go with an economy car and didn't need a third vehicle so the FX had to go.

    I am ready to buy a new car sometime between now and the next 3 months. I have decided that I like the 2006 FX35 but need some buying advice. There are 2 Infiniti dealers in town, currently they have 47 2006 FX35 in inventory.

    I want to get the best possible deal so I am wondering if I should wait until the 2007's hit the lot and then purchase a 2006.
    Anyone knows when the 2007 will hit the lot? I saw at the Infiniti dealership that couple of their models where already 2007.
    Also can you buy an 2006 FX35 under invoice? and if you can how much under?

    Any other advice you can provide is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Last week I got my new (15 miles) FX 35, Diamond Graphite with Tech package etc, and XM. list $46250 for $42650. Exactly what I wanted, but I needed rack crossbars. I was quoted the correct list price for them plus $250 for labor. I agreed.
    The next day I called the service/parts of the SAME dealer (RI's only dealer) and was quotes $100 for the labor. The saleswoman was very apologetic when I called to make an issue of it.
    The fault was the sales manager, not the polite saleswaman.
    I got the problem sorted out.
    There is a loose string coming out of a window frame, can I just pull it, till it all comes out?

    I love my FX. It is actually for my wife, but I am not letting her drive it just yet.
