    I see that you are an Infiniti Sales consultant. If you don't mind, send me an e-mail...maybe we can do business.

    What exactly is the Nissan/Infiniti Vehicle Purchase Program? How could my company participate?
  • mmcgovernmmcgovern Posts: 2
    So I'm al set to buy the QX4 when someone in the car biz tells me that the QX4 is one of the few
    SUV's he would not consider. He states that the Infiniti has a terrrible resale value. That it does not hold it's value as well as most other SUV's. His preference is the Lexus.

    Anybody have any data on this? I like the QX4 and feel that I can get it for a few thousand less than the RX300. And it looks nicer (the RX 300 looks to much like a minivan. Don't want to get the shaft on resale though. Might as well just buy the high end Pathfinder.

    mmcgovern:
    I would not be too worried about QX4 resale. It does not fall under the category of terrible. However, resale can be a relative thing depending on which vehicles it is being compared to. The RX300 happens to have a better resale value than just about any vehicle on the market, so yes, it's easy to recommend it as a "value" buy. But I would expect that you have other considerations in addition to just resale. You mentioned the "minivan" look as just one example. My advice is to buy what you like the best, since you will not get "hammered" on resale with any of these vehicles.
    If you really are concerned with resale as your primary purchasing factor, and want an SUV "look", then you might also consider the 4Runner,
    which has the rare distinction of being a vehicle that is heavily discounted AND has excellent resale (Not too many in that category). One caveat about the RX300: It's resale is extremely high right now, but some of that is artificially created due to lack of supply. As Lexus produces more (and they will), the resale value ratios will decline. In three years the RX300 will surely still have good resale, just not quite as strong as it is now.
    RX300, 4Runner, Pathfinder, QX4 ? All good choices....DB

    Thanks for the advice!
  • ajajlm,

    I recently purchased 2001 Qx4 with premium/sports/rear spoiler for $37,000. Thanks for all the great posts on this board. My local dealers did not give any discount, so I drove to the nearby state to get this price.

    I also recently purchased a 2001 4WD, fully loaded (everything but the navigation and the communicator) with the rear spoiler, for $36,500.
    I found a great dealer in my area.

    have noticed some scratchmarks in a few places on my 01 QX4:

    -instrument panel glass
    -climate control plastic
    -side cargo area windows

    basically looks like someone rubbed these areas with a scratchy cloth or something.

    could you fellow owners check out this areas and report what you find?
  • nat64nat64 Posts: 4
    I also noticed some scratches on the instrument panel of my 2001.
  • jscatenajscatena Posts: 61
    I love my new '01 QX. However, I have noticed a vibration that I thought was in the wheel balance. I had the dealer re-balance the wheels but still notice it. Seems more of an engine vibration around 2000 rpms especially under heavy start up acceleration.

    Anyone else have this vibration?
  • nat64nat64 Posts: 4
    They are not the same. I bought my 2001 QX4 because I wanted the LUXURY. THE PATHFINDER IS NOT LUXURIOUS! The leather, the wood paneling, the 17" tires, the leather wrapped steering wheel, the auto 4WD (who cares if the Pathfinder will get it soon, we have it now! And if you already have the Pathfinder,you won't) Even the service and dealerships are nicer.

    Stop insulting the QX4 and be happy with you little common Pathfinder!
  • The Pathfinder LE with Leather package is avilable now its not comming as you said in your comments. The Pathfinder also has the wood trim and leather wrapped sterring wheel.

    Carbuyer 62, I am very interested in the deal you got on your PF purchase. I would like to know the options you have and the location of the dealership.

    Contact:sgrissom@netzero.net

    Thanks
  • Its in Miami, FL. all options come with the LE with Leather Package.
  • aling1aling1 Posts: 225
    The Pathfinder absolutely DOES NOT come with HID Xenon headlamps. Just look in the owner's manual and you'll see that. Also, the QX4's headlamps have a high voltage warning on them since real HID lights require an initial starting voltage of 20,000 volts! These HID lights alone are worth about $1200. Also, the QX4 comes with projector-style foglamps vs. the regular reflector-style foglamps on the Pathfinder.
  • The pathfinder does have Xenon Headlamps on the 2001 model only. Just look at the Pathfinder. However the QX4 does have an advanced Xenon Headlight system. On the QX4 you can move the beam up and down automatically with a button in the cab of the SUV. The Xenon Headlamps in the QX4 do have higher volts then the Pathfinder but the Pathfinder does have Xenon Headlamps. All though even if that feature in the QX4 is worth a thousand dollars The QX4 is still a much higher price and the question again... is it justified? I guess its in the eye of the beholder.
  • aling1aling1 Posts: 225
    I'll say it again. The '01 Pathfinder DOES NOT have Xenon headlamps. Open up your owner's manual and look at the headlamp bulb section. They are just regular H4 55 watt halogen bulbs that you can buy nearly everywhere. You're wrong, the QX4's HID Xenon headlamps use lower powered 35 watt D2RS Xenon bulbs. You obviously don't know what you're talking about.

    Look here: http://www.edmunds.com/newtrucks/2001/nissan/pathfinder/le4wd.html

    Under the "Standard Equipment" section, "aero-composite halogen headlamps" are clearly stated.

    FYI - I was able to purchase my 01 QX4 4x4 with everything except communicator/nagivation system for $3.2k below invoice. As I posted earlier, the $5k different between the PF and QX4 justified me to go with the QX4 b/c of the previously stated reasons.
  • yoeddyyoeddy Posts: 46
    Sorry, I meant I got my QX4 for $3.2k below MSRP. I wish below invoice. :-)
  • Who cares about the Headlights Its still not worth 8k more then the Pathfinder. And Yoeddy can not have bought the QX4 3.2k below MSRP the dealers are not selling the QX4 below invoice I also don't believe they will ever sell the QX4 below invoice later in the year either they are in demand besides the Holdback is only 1.5% they would be taking a loss if they sold the QX4 to Yoeddy for 3.2K less then MSRP.
  • yoeddyyoeddy Posts: 46
    Carbuyer62, I can fax you the paper work if you'd like. My QX4 was $40,295 MSRP and I got it for $37. Holdback has to do with invoice and not MSRP.

    If you're going to post, do everyone a favor and give correct facts. Everytime you've posted, someone has corrected you with true facts. From the actually price you paid for your vehicle, to Xenon headlights which you don't have, to the leather which are different (if you sat in both vehicles, you'd know that the leather in the pf is perforated while the QX4 is not), to the LE being the exact car as the QX4 (which a number of people have listed the differences). Obviously, you don't know what you're talking about and must be jealous. Your initial post was even a reply back to someone's post so, you must have some pent up frustration for having a PF and not a QX4. Why are you posting on a QX4 forum? No one wants you here. See ya, thanks for coming.
  • yoeddyyoeddy Posts: 46
    If you read previous posting on these forums, you'll find out that a number of other owners have gotten their QX4's for less than MSRP and some for $3k under MSRP. Facts not fiction
  • I have posted with the correct facts. The bottom line is the QX4 is the same mechanical SUV as the Pathfinder made by the mother company Nissan However I have stated several times the QX4 looks nicer and has a better cosmetic look. The question Yoeddy is.... is it worth 8k more? There is no question as to the QX4 being a better looking and better quality (cosmetic look) then the Pathfinder again the question is ... is it worth 8k more for the same mechanical SUV?
    That's all don't read into my posts as you are trying to do. And the last time I looked the USA is a FREE COUNTRY and I can post anywhere I want.
    And as far as you purchasing the QX4 for 3.2k below MSRP that would mean you purchased the QX4 below invoice. and I find that hard to believe on a 2001 QX4 however if you are talking about the 2000 QX4 I can believe that they are trying to get rid of the 2000 QX4.
  • nat64nat64 Posts: 4
    I purchased my 2001 QX4 for $36,500. I have no reason to lie about the price. The leather is better than the Pathfinder. And by the way I said the 4WD is not yet available on the Pathfinder. why would I say the leather is not available when I already said the leather on the QX4 is better. You really ought to pay more attention when you are reading these posts. You are bragging about things on the Pathfinder that aren't even there like the xenon headlights. You don't even know what is on your own vehicle! This is an Infiniti topic, why don't you go find a Nissan topic.
    The Pathfinder is nice for people who can't afford luxury.
  • yoeddyyoeddy Posts: 46
    Carbuyer, why have all of your facts been corrected by someone else? Invoice for my vehicle was $35.7k and I bought it for $37k for a 2001 QX4 4x4. How is that under invoice? Please use a calculator and figure this out for me? The $8k difference you come up with is wrong since you're using MSRP for the QX4. Also, I've posted the difference between the PF and my QX4 was $5k and I then proceed to list why the $5k was justified. As nat64, said go back to the nissan forums. You're not going to be able to change our minds. Jealous? I think so.
  • yoeddyyoeddy Posts: 46
    The $37k for my QX4 included $1k for the Gold Emblem package which happens to include 24k plated gold emblems. Why spend the $1k? B/c I deserve it. Right carbuyer? And no, I won't tell you where I live but plan on puting up picks of my ride on a website for you (carbuyer) to admire. Ciao!

    I've had my 2001 QX4 (Tuscan Beige) for about a month and a half now and have found NOTHING to complain about. And yes, I knew I could get the PF cheaper, but I, too, am worth the extra $$. The look of the QX4 is beefier, the seats are more comfortable, and I don't see my car every time I turn a corner. In fact, I have yet to see another one on the road!
  • s4andqx4s4andqx4 Posts: 1
    I have a hard time getting my left leg comfortable on long drive. The main culprit is the lack of a real dead pedal. Does anyone else have this problem?
  • ppnffppnff Posts: 65
    I've read the last 69 posts and wonder why anti-QX4 people are here stating that the QX4 is not worth the extra $8,000. I doubt the number is accurate and the difference is maybe half or $4,000. At least that was the difference on my 2000 QX4 when I compared it to the 2000 PF LE. Either way, this is forum to discuss to provide honest feedback, accurate numbers as well as representations, not relentlessly criticizing and making the same comments. My QX4 has been wonderful and zero problems. I am glad I spent the extra money. Just my two cents worth.
