Infiniti I35 Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • jchan2jchan2 Posts: 4,956
    As far as I know, Infinitis, except the QX56 are pretty much rock-solid and I wouldn't be worried about the high mleage of the car.

    Are you sure $7000 is Edmunds TMV and/or Kelly Blue Book value? To me the prices seem a little high but I haven't looked up the blue book on a 2000 I30 in a while.

    Maitenance costs for my I35 haven't been too bad, even though it is dealership maintained.
  • Thanks for your reply
    the Private party value on KBB is 7200, Used Car Customized Appraiser priced it @ 6,582

    i will bargain with the owner and hopefully convince him to sell around $6500.

    I've noticed that KBB values tend to be higher than Edmunds TMV so a good medium would be something in between them.

    There is next to no activity in this board anyways as the I35 has been discontinued and apparently a supply of certified/used ones are fairly rare. (my local Infiniti dealer only has 1 certified I35 and 1 non-Certified I30)
  • I have been trying to sell my 2002 Infiniti I35 since the beginning of July - have gotten hardly any calls and the ones who want to see it never show up when they say they will.

    What am I doing wrong? The price is commensurate with book value.

    It is a beautiful car, but I can't keep it since I moved to NYC. My parents have the car and aren't too happy they have to deal with the selling and keeping the car in the garage. :)

    If anyone wants to buy this car it is in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. It is Black/black leather/all luxuries.

    Help if you can with some tips on selling it. THANKS.

    Have you tried selling it to an Infiniti dealer? Depending on your milage, an Infiniti dealer would have an easier time selling it than you would have therefore they may be more willing to buy from you.

    Also you could list it on CraigsList or eBay or something.

    And if nothing else works, you may have to try a price cut. But I'd hit up the NYC Infiniti dealerships first and see if they want to buy the car from you.
  • Thanks for the dealer idea.

    The car is in PA - I will give that a try.

    Craiglist is where I have it and other places.

    THANK YOU for the reply.

    One other thing.... Even if you are asking book price.. If you aren't getting calls, then your price is likely to high..

    That goes for just about anything...


    Prices Paid, Lease Questions, SUVs

  • Got a call today. :)

    They wanted it but a thousand below book price.

    What do you think?
  • jchan2jchan2 Posts: 4,956
    I guess it depends on how bad you need the cash- if you really need to dump the car, I'd take a thousand below book and cut my losses.

    If I really could wait for better offers, I'd probably continue to hit up those NYC Infiniti dealerships (there is probably a dozen of them or so in the greater NYC area)

    I have to admit though, a thousand dollars below book isn't a bad offer. Perhaps you could negotiate a little and meet somewhere in the middle, perhaps somewhere around $500 below book.
  • THANKS - we sold it to someone $1,000 below book price, but at least no more car payments for my son.

    THANKS to everyone for their advice and assistance.

    Wish it had been in NYC - it would have sold more easily than in Pittsburgh, PA.

    Have a great day.
