You are in the Prices Paid - Buying & Leasing Experiences
What is this discussion about?
Infiniti G35, Infiniti G37, Coupe, Sedan
#4986 of 11107 G37 Coupes at VPP pricing - already
Nov 05, 2007 (1:09 pm)
Sales must not have been as strong as folks thought they were, you can now get the new 08 G37 on the VPP plan (if you are eligible).
"THE 2008 G37 COUPE IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE THROUGH THE VPP PROGRAM UNDER ALL PLANS."
On a related note, they now longer offer the $2,500 dealer cash incentive in left-over G35 COUPEs. I suspect they either are mostly out of them or more likely have made a final "buy down" price on them that is no longer called an "incentive" or "marketing support".
Here are the reported October 2007 Infiniti G numbers:
Model Oct 2007 Oct 2006 % Chg YTD 07 YTD 06 % Chg
G Sedan 3,652 2,771 26.7 45,133 29,573 52.0
G Coupe 1,887 1,397 29.9 13,870 18,137 -23.8
So sedan numbers up nearly 27% for the month and 52% year to date while coupe numbers are up nearly 30% for October but down nearly 24% for the year.

i know it's late and this is my final response. i wrote one immediately, but don't see it posted.
superman - i am amazed at how easy it is to separate consumers from their money.
it is never poor financial advice to tell consumers to minimize their debt. there are so many instances of professional financial advisers telling their customers to carefully analyze whether or not they can afford to purchase a particular item (cars, houses and such). They all warn against debt accumulation.
most people will not get an investment return that is more than the interest cost incurred. "dumping cash" usually begins a statement that most salesmen make to consumers to encourage them to pay interest and financing expenses.
my customers are quite happy with advice and NONE are upside down in purchases, where I advised them. my customers know how to differentiate between equity, expense assets, liabilities and expenses. they also understand the cost of money vs. interest income, return on capital, investment income and the like. The exception is that many of my customers can afford to buy a car outright and avoid the interest cost that most of us incur.
A car is not an asset unless it is used to produce income, period. It is a liability...the constant costs of maintenance, gas, etc equal cash outflow NOT inflow which assets produce.
I have a list of books as well to support my position. Every person's situation is different is a poor excuse to advise consumers to go into debt.
I suggest that you practice accounting before you try to give an inaccurate accounting lesson. A very inaccurate one at that. I have prosecuted many certified public accountants for such nonsense and hope to continue to do so, since it protects the public from poor financial practitioners who believe that the general buying public is better off maximizing car debt, rather than buying a product outright.
I am not against leasing vehicles. I only suggest that consumers better understand the choices they make, when purchasing a car. If one chooses to lease, then so be it. That is the person's right. However, they should know that there are other choices to make. Leasing is primarily a lifestyle choice. I have a leased car for my busienss. I also have a car that I own outright.
Dealers overcharge us on a regular basis because we lack the information to get a better deal.

St.Louis...The deal is not closed yet. Another dealer in town will make an offer tomorrow that could be better.
#4989 of 11107 November G incentives and cheap financing
Nov 05, 2007 (8:03 pm)
Edmunds is showing $500 in customer cash for (shock) new 2008 G37 coupes.
The details say:
Offer is only available to customers who currently own or lease an Infiniti vehicle. Offer is good towards the purchase or lease of eligible vehicles. Trade in is not required. See dealer for details.
The G37 can now be purchased on the VPP plan for those that qualify.
NEARLY any G you want, 08 G37 coupe, 07 or 08 G35 sedan can be financed at a cheap rate:
2.9% APR for 24 months
2.9% APR for 36 months
3.9% APR for 48 months
3.9% APR for 60 months
It is shown on Edmunds that there is still $2,500 in dealer money on left over 07 G35 COUPEs. No cheap financing shown for the 07 coupes, just the $2,500 dealer incentive.
Lease rates are also down in November and residuals are higher.

Are there dealers out there with 2007 g35 sedans left, preferably g35x?
#4991 of 11107 2008 G35x w/Prem for $35,000
Nov 06, 2007 (10:42 am)
2008 G35x w/Premium, Cargo Net and Splash Guards at Lynnes Infiniti (NJ) for $35,000 (includes destination). They have a document fee of $299 however.
I think it's a good deal. The only major complaint I have with the dealership is it took over 3 weeks to get the new plate (bought it out of state) and after purchasing the car in full they showed little interest in getting the plates any time soon.
#4992 of 11107 are the invoice for same model same for different dealers?
Nov 07, 2007 (10:21 am)

I probably wont be much help cause I am still waiting to get a good deal but what I have so far been doing is telling them I will pay XYZ after all taxes and fees. Also I have been telling them what other offers I have (sometimes exaggerating a bit or leaving something out) and this has actually gotten me further but I have yet to find a deal that I will be able to go home and feel happy about.

Which dealership in Atlanta did you get that at? I'm looking at the 08 Journey with premium and navigation.
#4995 of 11107 Is 4% over invoice a fair deal?
Nov 08, 2007 (4:14 am)
What would you consider in percentage over invoice to be a good deal. I am in New England.
