#313 of 3411 Just drove an FX35 last night
Apr 02, 2003 (8:24 pm)
I went to my local Infinity dealer last night to try the FX35 and G35. After driving both, it is hard to decide what I like better. The G35 is of course more agile and smaller feeling. The FX35 is really more fun to drive, unique styling, and has a better choice of exterior and interior colors. I would get the Sport Package...for some strange reason it is required with some colors. I certainly did not find it hard riding, and I have never before driven anything but a regular car. The G35 did not seem that different than my Passat GLX, except more power. After reading these posts, I may wait for the 2004 since I did find the passenger seat a little low.

You'll have to learn how to properly spell the name of the car before ya buy one......remember, Infiniti (not Infinity)....:^).

Just bought a FX45 w/Tech Package a couple weeks ago and already put in about 1500 miles on it! I got the Diamond Graphite exterior w/Tan leather--neat combo! Traded in my BMW X5 3.0--the FX45 absolutely kills it (in every category)! For about $50K, there's nothing out there that can even come close to matching the style, awesome power and features of the FX45. Everywhere I go, people are staring at it (esp. other SUV owners!). I love blowing away those pesky X5 4.4 owners...hehe. I definately recommend getting the Tech Package--it's expensive but definately worth it and really adds to the overall driving enjoyment. A small wish list: adjustable suspension (yes, the ride is stiff but at least it's well-controlled), full 340 H.P.--it's the same Q engine, but why only 315?, body side moldings--to prevent door dings. Otherwise, the FX45 is the TOTAL PACKAGE!

#318 of 3411 Why the FX45 has only 315 H.P.

It was explained in the March, 03 Car and Driver that FX45 does not have a real dual exhaust system like the Q45 and M45. In other words, the FX45 has a fake dual exhaust system. I really think Infiniti should have made FX45 their flagship instead of the Q/M45 pair.
#319 of 3411 Decent Lease deals

Has anyone gotten a decent lease deal on a FX35 lately? I am looking for something in the 500-600 range with minimal down and 12k miles. I haven't been able to get a dealer to give me an idea despite being a current infiniti owner.
#320 of 3411 Lease deals

A local dealer in Atlanta has been advertising an FX35 with premium pkg for $399 a month on a 60 month lease with $995 down, no acquisition fee or security deposit. Sounds low - wonder if they find a way to upsell? Overall, I've heard that a few dealers are now doing a 39 month lease with $1,500 down for $465 + tax (note: getting this rate takes a bit of work - the starting negotiation is much, much higher, but the inventory seems to be piling up due to recent world events and now with GM's 6 years 0% financing offer it's only going to get worse). Has anyone else seen decent lease deals?

A premium awd fx35 should be leasable for about 575 over 36mo 12k per. it would go down to 537 if you stretch it out to 4yrs. These are pre tax number. The numbers I used are below.
Cap Cost 36850
Acq fee 495
mf 36/48 .00210/.00200
RV 36/48 54/43
Down Payment = 0
First and security due plus ttl
I have a spreadsheet where you can plug and chug number if you want it just shoot me an e-mail
This should be an easilly attainable payment.
#322 of 3411 Lease payments on AWD FX35/Premium
Apr 04, 2003 (6:38 pm)
Ten days ago, I leased an AWD FX35 with Premium and cargo protector (MSRP $38,915). For 39 months/15,000 per year, with $1,000 down, my payments are $542 per month including Ohio sales tax which is calculated in all up front. The tax part of that payment is approximately $50. So, the payment without tax would be around $492. Also, I paid no security deposit. Title/plates/document fees were $100 total, which I paid up front. This vehicle was brand new, not a demo. I really did my homework and negotiated a sweet deal - if you want any more details, you can e-mail me. Hope this helps!
