    I like the colour with Midnight Garnet & Graphite. But the dealer only has one which includes almost everything, with tech, premium and deluxe touring package, and with the window tint and front protector (forgot the exact name). They also provide one year maintenance for free.

    MSRP: 50,210
    They offer me 46,000 out of door.

    I know if comparing with MSRP, it is almost $7800-8000off. But there are too many upgrades and some of them are definitely not so useful. I wonder wether this is still a sweet deal?

    I show MSRP of what you've listed as $46725, including delivery, so I can't see where the extra $4000 comes from.

    I'd expect any Infiniti dealership to do at least one year free maint. That's just two oil changes; BFD.

    I'd expect $5k or so off of THAT MSRP (ie don't include any dealer-added options; they're all pure profit anyway), so to me a reasonable price (not OTD; I don't quote OTD prices here because everyone has a different idea of what that is) would be about $41725 or so, all inclusive, you add tax, DMV registration, and that's it. IE all dealer fees and dealer profits (except the extra profit they get from the ~$50 DMV registration) included in the 41725.
  • Thank you very much for your reply.

    I did not list all the upgrade options. Indeed it includes

    tech, premium and deluxe touring package
    Cargo Area Protector & First Aid Kit / Cargo Organizer / Tonneau Cover
    Splash Guards / Aluminum Roof Rails / Stainless Steel Rear Bumper Protector / Stainless Steel Illuminated Kick Plates

    MSRP is $47930

    Dealer-added options:

    All season floor mats / Wheel lock / Nitrogen Tire Fill / Wolfgang Paint Protection $895
    Window tinted $395
    Front, hood, mirror protection $995
    Free 12-month maintenance includes up to 4 oil changes and 2 tire rotations / unlimited car wash

    So MSRP turns out $50215

    Now the offer is $46000 out for the door.

    Is it still good to buy?

    The MSRP, from the looks of it, is $47930. Extra dealer-added options bring the (very dubious!) total up to $50215; this is PURE PROFIT for the dealer and is *NOT* MSRP; it's extra dealer profit.

    If I recall correctly Infiniti is the brand with the paint that 'heals itself' with the right weather conditions, so I wouldn't worry about "Wolfgang" paint protection or the other features too much.

    I'd at least go back to the dealer with a MSRP value of $47930, and ask them to knock $5000 off of that, for a price of $42930, but to me $41750 is a better starting point - you likely don't need all the extra do-dads.

    You'll need to see if you have tax/title/license fees in your state high enough to bring that to $46000.

    I just saw a $2000 manufacturer to dealer incentive on the EX series, so $5000 off is probably not asking enough. I'd jump to $7000 and see what they said and likely knock it down $500 to $6500 under MSRP and see what all the local dealers in my area (300 miles from me) said.

    Edmund's says an average good price for the EX35 loaded like this one is about $1000 under invoice+delivery, so you might start by deducting $2000 from there and starting at that (I show about $39k and change).
  • Thanks a lot!
  • I am looking to buy a EX35 model at Chicago area. found out

    Fields Infiniti at Glencoe, IL has promotion for $6555 off all 2011 EX35's in stock

    any other good deals?
  • blackexv6blackexv6 Posts: 490
    $6555 is a pretty decent deal. PA/NJ/NY dealers aren't budging more than $4,000.

    There were some unbelievable deals on 2010's month or two ago.
  • sewellgsmsewellgsm Posts: 775
    The reason Edmund's say the average price is $1000 under invoice is because there is $2000 dealer cash. So, the dealer originally bought the vehicle from Infiniti at MSRP and most are willing to split the dealer cash they will get when they report it sold. This way the dealer is making $1000 from Infiniti and you are getting the vehicle $1000 below the original invoice.

    You will never get the vehicle for $3000 below invoice...not with the shortage of vehicles. Most dealers are raising their prices as Infiniti has done already - plus I expect the $2000 dealer cash to go away too - no reason for Infiniti to give that money to the dealers because they will sell the few EXs they have left without it. :(

    Here's what I got:

    2011 EX 35 White Exterior / Chestnut Interior
    Premium Package
    Deluxe Touring Package.

    MSRP: 44, 180
    Sale: 37,835 (6,345$ off from MSRP)
    Tax: 2,648 (7% NJ Tax)
    Doc Fee: 364$
    Registration: 374$
    Tire Tax: 7.5

    I worked with Ryan Mays from Fette Infiniti and he was a pleasure to work with. I worked with him through the car buying site, carwoo.com. He is sincere and will really work hard to get your business without being pushy at all.

    Contact me on me AT ramtajogi.in if you want more details or have additional questions.

    I believe you meant invoice above. If Edmunds reports the avg price at $1000 below invoice that would lead me to believe there are a lot of deals out there that are well below that. I'm sure some dealers are selling at $2000(or more) below invoice as well as some deals at invoice(or above) for Edmunds to come up with an average of $1000 below invoice. The trick is to find the hungry dealers. ;)

    PS Like the dealer in the post just prior to this.
  • I was at a Infiniti dealer yesterday looking at a EX35 AWD Journey with only the premium package and no accessories. The 'internet price' was about 36700. They said that they have this new policy where the internet price for the car is the final price and you can't negotiate that price. Supposedly its called transparent pricing or something to that effect. Can anyone confirm this?

    Plus the total OTD price would be approximately 39,620. I was hoping for a lower price...

    An individual dealership can do whatever they want. They can stick to full MSRP if they want. Nobody here can really "confirm" anything for you. If that is the dealership's policy, then that's their policy. Your only choice is to shop elsewhere if you don't like it.

    According to True Car.com the MSRP of that EX is 42,145 and invoice is 38,855 minus 2,000 for the incentive. Their invoice price is $36,855 so your price is $155 below invoice.

    Of course they'll charge you a doc fee and they'll get their holdback of maybe $500-600 plus any volume special they may get from Infiniti.

    I am looking now and might accept a price like that.

    Let us know if the price was legit
  • Just bought a new (not used, full warranty) 2010 EX Journey Rwd with Bose + all around camera package, splash guards, cargo protector and first aid kit, cargo area organizer, navigation package, wheel locks, and floor mats. Has 160 miles on it. Sticker was $39,410. Blue Book says invoice for all that is $36,320. Price paid was $30,998, plus destination of $875.00 plus registration and tax (7.5% here, ouch). $34k out the door.

    I was lucky the dealer had exactly the white/wheat combo I was looking for that I could not find in a 2011 without having to buy both the premium and tech packages. The new dealer just bought the dealership from a bankruptcy sale of the previous dealer, so probably they bought the inventory at good prices so they have lots of room to deal.

    Congrats on a good deal but it sure would be nice of you to mention the dealer's name so others could possibly benefit.
  • Napleton's Infiniti of Tallahassee, FL. Great folks to deal with too.
  • nice deal. enjoy the new ride.....
  • We are down to 14 EX in stock with none coming in the pipeline...looks like Infiniti hasn't built one of these in 3 months - not sure if there were too many in the US and they were waiting for supply levels to flatten out or they had resources going to the JX...either way not much left to choose from.
  • Sewellgsm,

    You are claiming that Infiniti has not built one EX35 in the last 3 months. Considering this is mid December 2011, you are saying that not one EX35 has been built since mid September 2011 - about the time when 2012 EX35 models were introduced. Per your claim, not one 2012 EX35 model should be around US. Is this believable?

    If I go to www.cars.com, and search for new car inventory, as of today, there are 1550 2012 EX35 available across US - a production rate of almost 500 cars per month not including the sales.

    So help me square the circle.

    I can understand lower levels of production. Compared to Jan-Nov 2010 sales of 7409 EX35, infiniti has managed to sell only 5486 EX35 from Jan - Nov 2011. Hence, the lower production levels. But it is hard to believe your claim that no EX35s have been produced in the last 3 months.

    Despite being a fantastic car, I think that EX35 lower sales is partially a reflection of very little incentives infiniti has been providing to this line. Infiniti marketing has to do some number crunching to figure out the right incentives to get the sales going.

    I wonder if i settled in this deal too quickly..
    What do you think?
  • I'm looking at a 2008 EX35 that has 52k miles, one owner. The autocheck report is clean, but it does show that it was purchased at a wholesale auction. Given the VIN, can I trace this car any further and find out what was paid at auction (Eastern Region)? The car was originally purchased in New Jersey.

    I've read some reports of issues with brake rotors, etc., and I'd be very interested in learning any potential issues with this model before purchasing.

    Any advice on fair pricing for this would be welcomed, too.

    Thank you.
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,673
    Post the vin and i'll see what i can pull up, if anything

    '13 Stang GT; '15 Fit; '98 Volvo S70; '14 Town&Country

  • 7k less than MSRP has to be one of the better deals I have seen.
    Can you let us know which state/dealer?

    Also, congratulations...
  • I emailed you the VIN (standard email).

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    It was Monrovia, California/Metro Infiniti.

    I used car buying service with USAA online, and was contacted by several dealers. Metro Inifiniti had the car I wanted.

    Sorry, have not been on Forum lately...yeah I order vehicles every month for the dealership I work for. We were extremely low on EX and needed some more and they did not offer to build us any for 3 months. We did not get to order any in May either....I think they are going to discontinue this car.

    I like the vehicle too, just letting folks know what I'm seeing. :(

    The EX35 Looks wonderful! Have looked at CR-V LX, Hyundi Santa Fe, Chevy Equinox. The only thing I don't like is the poor gas millage compared to above (but much more power)...but otherwise it's really beautiful inside and out... guess it's hard to get power and good gas millage.

    Any opinions on this purchase appreciated....
  • m6userm6user Posts: 3,047
    Spend another $5k and get a brand new(with new car warranty) 2013 Acura RDX. Similar V6 power, way better mpg, lot more room inside, can use reg. gas, sits a little higher, great resale and is 3 years newer. I like Infiniti but the EX35 just didn't compare except it's a little faster and handles a little more like the G. But you give up a lot of what the average person buys a CUV for to get those two attributes. Something to consider.
  • diedrediedre Posts: 2
    Dear m6user,

    Excellent info...I will check it out!...I hadn't considered that car/suv before.
    Thank you
