  • kahlel, you can definitely do better. Remember, I paid $41,625 for Premium AND Navigation.

    I financed at 4.5% through Bank of America (via dealer). Credit score of 812.

    Make sure you ask what the fees will be BEFORE negotiating the price of the car.

    BTW - best car ever! Love it!
  • Thanks for the replies. I'll ask for the navigation package. Our financing is 4.24% but not through dealer. >820 credit score. I am prepared to walk. With NAV & Premium, $41,625 still looks like a nice price.

    Good idea on verifying the exact fees.
  • I am interested in 2010 Fx35 and I know current factory rebate is $4000 and it will expire 3/31. But the problem is I am going to move to a new location in the coming May so that is the time I want a new vehicle. So the question is: Does this kind of rebate happen often? Will a new rebate come out after current one expire?

    Thanks for all your information!
  • Latest: ~$41,800 for a 2010 AWD FX35 with Premium & Navigation. Close .. oh so close. Feedback? Good price?

    I live in so cal and I was just quoted $40,395 + fees for the prem and nav packages. Mind you, it was a black obsidian rwd.
  • The difference is $1450 for the invoice prices, so that sounds about right. We can't do RWD in these necks of the woods.

    Take the price you were quoted and add the invoice: $41,548, which is where I need the price to be. I know I can do better than what I got. Tough to see the dealer walk away over $200. But we'll see next weekend.
  • Yes, there is almost always either a factory to dealer incentive or a customer rebate going on but it differs each month. One month, it may be a $5000 dealer incentive or it could possibly be a $1000 customer rebate or sometimes nothing. You never know. I'd say you can't get much better than a $4000 factory to dealer incentive though. Take it while it's offered if you can. Research monthly rebates at Edmunds.com.
  • The 4K marketing support has been going on since at least November. I thought it was ending March 1, so if they've moved it to March 31 that's another month extension already.
  • Thanks. Hopefully it will extend another 2 months or have a better offer in May.
    Another question, when will the 2011 model come out?
    It seems that Fx does not sell well compared to MDX or RX.
  • The 2011 should be no real difference from the 2010 and it should come out around September. The $4k is good till 3/31 and like others mentioned the incentives usually stay the same or get better as the year moves on. :)

    How good is a $41,830 price for a 2010 AWD with Premium Navigation?
  • I have negotiated a deal for a 2010 rwd with prem and kick plates for $37,800 + fees. Out the door price is $41,700. What do you guys think, deal or no deal?

    That looks like a great price.. Does it include dest and doc fees?
  • Yes, all fees are already included. I tried to get a better deal at a few other dealerships, but this was the best I could do. Btw, does anyone know if that American Express gift card program is still around?
  • $41,250 before tax,tags & reg. for Premium/Nav/Cross Bars/Cargo kit/First Aid kit/Splash guards. Think pretty good deal and didnt really try that hard. Went to dealership in Edison NJ.
  • Better deal than I got considering I paid $41,650 without cross bars. What kind of fees did they hit you up with afterwards? For example, Doc Fee?
  • Infiniti announced yesterday that they are increasing the price on the 2010 FX35 and FX50. The FX35 is going up $450 and the FX50 is going up $600.

    So, if you are shopping for an FX - try to find one that is currently in stock - it will be cheaper - a few weeks/months from now the inventory will be mixed and you will have to ask the salespeople to look at the vehicles that have been on the lot longer to save the money. Hope this helps. :)
  • Just sounds like the 1% dealer holdback is being pulled. Those figures are roughly 1% of the respective MSRPs. Hopefully, I pick one up this Saturday. Last day of the month. Snow on the ground. We'll see ..

    Drove it home two days ago. Black obsidian rwd with prem, illuminated kick plates, and crossbars. Cost before fees: $37,850. Out the door price of $41,750. I hope that helps some of you who are still shopping around.

    Just picked up 2010 AWD, Black Obsidian, Java Interior with Premium, Navigation + Cross Bars, First Aid Kit, Mud Flaps etc etc for $41,500 before tax, tags, docs; well to be completely honest, it was $41,750, but we adjusted other figures to give us our OTD price.

    Infiniti of Ardmore takes the cake of all the dealers we looked at in the Philly area. Super experience. Awesome staff. We spent more time waiting around for key chains and a hat than we did buying the car.

    Look them up if you are in the market for an Infiniti.

    Thanks to the posts in this forum, I feel like we got a great deal.

    I know that the $4K cash back on all purchases was through the end of last month but I was curious if anyone knows if it will be extended through March? I was interested but did not move quick enough. Thanks!
  • sewellgsmsewellgsm Posts: 775
    No changes for FX.

    10 FX35: Special Rates OR $4000
    10 FX50: Special Rates OR $5000

    $2000 Lease Loyalty Rebate for those leasing who own an Infiniti now.

    Hope this helps. :)
  • jmmsumrujmmsumru Posts: 5
    Thanks for the clarification, this is great news that I can still leverage the special rates or cash back!
  • jmmsumrujmmsumru Posts: 5
    I'm interested in taking advantage of the $4K cash back offer on the FX35 but I have three more lease payments on a 2008 EX (~$1,500) which Infiniti is not willing to eat. Should I wait until making my last payment (which is the end of May) and hope that they are still offering $4K cash back or bite the bullet now and eat the payments myself. My dealer is willing to sell me the FX35 I want for $500 over invoice which isn't bad and the service at this dealership is really good. My EX is also way under it's mileage quota but it's also too short of a time to consider something like swaplease so I'm looking for advice. Thanks!

    Have you already established your EX's trade-in value? If you are way under on the miles, maybe it is better than the residual on your contract.(??)

    Otherwise, I would wait.

    1. It does happen that incentives can get worse at the year progresses, but I wouldn't say it is all that common.

    2. If you eat the payments now and the incentive goes UP in May, you'd really be kicking yerself.

    3. The dealer may go even lower in May if the units continue to sit there.

    gbrozen - my car is actually worth about (both from kbb and edmunds trade-in values) $1,500 more than my payoff/residual. I didn't really try to use that as a bargaining point, do you think they will budge? I'm willing to wait to ensure the greatest savings. I'm not really keen on outright buying the car and then having to sell or trade it in since I will have to pay the taxes on the purchase price which almost negates the difference between the residual and trade-in value.
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,328
    KBB and edmunds are typically high, so it is tough to say if you actually have any equity. But, yes, to answer your question, even with a leased vehicle, you can trade it in rather than turn it in early. You don't need to buy it out to do so. A dealer who buys a leased vehicle from an individual has the advantage of not having to pay the taxes.

    So, in short, I would ask the dealer if they are interested in doing a deal now by buying the vehicle for more than the residual, thus saving you some money on the remaining payments.

  • I'm lookin' to pick up a used '09 FX, but can only find former rental cars for sale in my price range (below $35K-I'm finding FX's with 18-23K miles at around $33-34K). I'm hesitant to go that route as the rentals can take a beating. That said, the Infiniti warranty is pretty extensive and may cover any mechanical issues due to the wear & tear. If anyone has any experience with buying former rental FX's and has some advice, I'd love to hear it!

    Thanks - Obsidian7
  • I too was looking for an 09 FX35 and ran into the same problems you are having. I did not feel comfortable buying a rental either. I just picked up on 08 with 7,000 miles on it on Saturday from Fields Infiniti in Chicago. I hesitated to buy an 08, but it has all the options and you can tell it was well taken care of and with 7,000 miles, I figured I could not go wrong. Picked it up for $32,325. Not sure if the lane departure and intelligent cruise are worth the extra money, but it had it, so I have it. Hope this helps.

  • Oh, I should also mention that the car has Navigation, AWD and the P265/50/20's option for wheels/tires. That might make more sense as far as price goes.
