    Guys, which forum do you suggest? I am planning to buy later in the year or early next year but want to read more about the potential problem that the current QX56 owners are facing with. Used Google to search but looks like they are not very active forums. Thanx

    The all-new QX is not eligible YET on the VPP program.

    AMEX program is powered by ZAG (who also powers USAA, Overstock, etc) - it is simply a marketing tool. We, the dealers, pay them money to get you, the customer, into our dealerships. Go to any dealer with that piece of paper and say you want your $2k off and watch them talk their way out of it - saying that they are not participating in the program on the QX.

    I send the prices I'm willing to sell the vehicles for to ZAG, they take my prices along with about 10 other dealers and come up with an average - and they call it a "Target Price". Again - a way you can get an idea of what to expect to pay. On all the other lines (FX, G, M etc.), you will get real close to that maybe even below it - but not on the QX right now.

    When it is eligible for VPP, come buy it from us at invoice (VPP price) - I promise you will like the experience. I'm not trying to influence, I'm just telling the truth and sometimes the truth stinks. I too am trying to educate, go test what I'm saying and report back. Have a nice weekend - Go Rangers! :)
  • Just to put a name to my deal since you are so skeptical of reality, Infiniti of Manhattan in NYC $69515 MSRP --Paid $66,000 plus tax at 2.9% 66months. Circle Infiniti in NJ offered me the same deal but couldnt locate the car. I am pretty sure real estate and the cost of doing business in the middle of Manhattan is significantly higher than somewhere in the middle of Texas and some how, miraculously they found a way to get it done. I will be happy to show you the deal if you would like. I guess they are bad business people!

    Congrats - and thanks for the info.

    If that is all they can get for them up there - I guess they got to do what they have to do.
  • I'm ready to pull the trigger on the QX, the 2 dealerships in the Seattle area are both owned by the same person. No deals other than MSRP here.

    I'd love to go out of state if it saves me a few thousand. Because of the low inventory, dealers in Portland, Idaho etc. already have customers lined up for the 3-4 cars they are expecting.

    Any tips other than wait. :confuse:

    Many off-topic posts have been removed... All the clutter just sends readers elsewhere..

    To address a few points:

    - All members are welcome to post here... salespeople included, as long as the discussion is on-topic.

    - A good way to tell if your post is off-topic? If the subject of the post is another member, rather than the QX56, then you are probably off-topic.

    - Posts complaining about other members being off-topic... are off topic.

    Anyone with a buying experience?

    thanks!

    I would wait unless you have money to burn. Full size SUVs depreciate a lot more than other smaller cars. I just received an internet quote from a local Houston dealer for a 2011 QX56 with the touring package for $1,500 off of MSRP. $1,500 for only about less than a month? I don't think I want to buy it right now. I know if I go to the dealer right now, I think I can get a little bit better.

    Just wait and with the money you save, take a road trip vacation in your new truck :) :)

    Infiniti decided to truck QXs directly from the ports to the dealers, bypassing the rails they generally use. This cost them money; however, it gets the vehicles to the dealerships a couple of weeks early. I think they are behind on their projections overall and think if they can get these QXs to the dealerships this week they can boost sales for October.

    Many of these QXs are already sold to customers or custom orders but Infiniti doesn't get to count the "sale" until they are contracted. Dealer must have vehicle to contract.

    So, if availablity in your area has been low, check with your local dealer this weekend. More supply on the ground may lead you to better deals as well. :)

    Some on the infiniti forum got very good deals now:

    http://www.infinitiforum.net/infiniti-forum/showthread.php?s=57e18198a28589b3844- b144447bd161a&t=5758

    the first one got $1K above invoice and the other one got $3900 off of MSRP. Wow!

    Get ready to deal in December :)

    Which dealer as we are looking in H Towna rea and a nrthern dealer (S..ll) will not budge.
  • Dealer finally gets 6 on the lot, with 3 presold, including mine.

    I paid MSRP less 500 with the tech pkg, black with wheat interior.

    I had a trade-in, and received little over KBB dealer pricing on the trade. They beat the Acura and Lexus dealers on the trade-in by 2K!!

    The whole deal took 15 min to put together, and by the time we were done, all 6 trucks on the lot were sold. The supply is weak, so demand remains strong.

    BTW, I asked for a few accessories to be thrown in as well.

    I paid MSRP less $750 plus discount on the financing rate to 3.15% for 72 months. Dealer gave tint, wheel locks, and two years free oil changes and tire rotation. Black on black with tech, deluxe and theatre and this SUV is limited in supply or has already been bespoken for. Saw a few on the lot but not that many and the count was less than what was posted on their website.

    Great deal on a fabulous vehicle. Same as mine except mine has bench 2nd row seats. I have 7k miles on mine, maybe the tops for a new one in this forum?

    This vehicle far exceeds my expectations. Drives like a luxury car not a truck like my 2008 did, which I still really liked just not near as much as the 2011. No issues at all to report. I love all the features, the looks, the handling is great as well. I drove it in the Mountains in NM on vacation and it handles in this mountain twisties like a sports car. I simply love this vehicle and am glad to own one,. Maybe my favorite of the 12 Infiniti's I have owned over the past 17 years. Great job Infiniti
  • Only thing Infiniti has going on is special rates.

    up to 66 months is 2.9%
    up to 72 months is 3.9%

    Infiniti offered up another small allocation of vehicles they already got to the US to dealers who were short of QX's, everyone was short so the ones who sold the most got the most - we got just over 20 - the vehicles should get to the dealerships at the end of Nov or beginning of Dec. Because the directed shipped most QXs a few weeks ago, what is on the ground is what dealers will have until this next batch hits in late Nov. So, go look now - if you wait a couple weeks there won't be any to choose from.

    We sold 116 total vehicles (3rd in the Nation) of those 38 were QX's (I assume the most in the Nation but have yet to see the breakdown). We consistantly sold them from MSRP to $500 off, sometimes throwing in mats or tint. So, if you are getting better deals than that you should feel good about it. I think the price will start to come down at the first of the year, many buyers buy big SUVs for tax write-offs at the end of the year - so if you holding out for a bargain - expect around March. :)
  • Car finally arrived after waiting for 2 months and it was well worth the wait. Deluxe touring models seem to be pretty scarce in Florida, so I had to wait for one the dealer had on order. Black with graphite, awd deluxe. Every option minus tech and I paid $66,900. That price was $3500 off msrp. Infiniti has since raised the price and same options now sticker for $72,115, thats a $1700 increase on msrp. I'm glad I bought when I did. Even though it is still a lot of money, I felt it was a value when compared to competition. Traded in a 09 Denali and the 2 vehicles don't even compare.

    So I have been dealing with Sewell who refuses to budge on pricing form MSRP. A dealer in Georgia offered me an approximate discount of $3700 off MSRP on an undelivered Touring Edition 2011. THe Sewell saleman basically said I was a fool and was about to be scammed. During our banter, which I believe has brainwashed this salesman, he said no Sewell employee is allowed to post anything on the internet re: Infiniti cars. If that is true, then SewellGSM is very bogus. So taking anything he says with a grain of dsalt or a valium.
  • Yea, almost all of the dealers in the south (from Texas to Louisiana) has been pretty tough on their price point for deluxe models but can you blame them?...It's been pretty tough for some of these dealers when infiniti overall was down 30% from prior periods earlier in the year.
  • LOL - congrats on your deal. Please read my past post - I'm not "banned" from anything. BTW, we've started to see some minor discounting here in Texas as well (not $3700) but some chinks in the MSRP armor.

    Remember, I can only tell you what I see and hear - if a Georgia dealer is having trouble selling them and needs to discount it in order to do so - that is their business.

    We led the country in QX sales last month and have a bigger demand in Texas (10 dealers whom all did well in QX sales) - don't shoot the messenger.

    PS Look at my post on FX or EX or G sedan - prices paid on those in Texas are as agressive as anywhere in the country.

    I'm not Bogus.... :D I'm the real deal!
  • How rare is the 2011 Infiniti QX56 with all three packages from a non-preorder standpoint? (theatre, deluxe and tech)
  • johnhwjohnhw Posts: 111
    I got mine in early August with all three option packages and with a 2nd row bench seat as well. Black on black so just the car I wanted but I had to wait on it to be delivered for about a month after finding it in process in early July. Love this vehicle. It is great...have nearly 8k miles now
