I got my Berrylium 2006 FX-35 for $40,900 from Infiniti Thousand Oaks, CA. They had to bring it from another dealer 130 miles away, because Berrylium is a harder color to obtain with the options I wanted. I didnt want the Nav-system, but I took the sport suspension and 20" wheel package, the bluetooth handsfree, the Touring Pkg and the keyless entry system. I am happy with the car's performance, and unhappy with the electronics packages - they have 2 design bugs, so far, from the factory:
1) bluetooth - if phone drops the cell's connection, it often hangs in phone mode, and the dashboard buttons wont disconnect and return to radio/cd modes. Only turning off the ignition resets the hung state of the system.
2) keyless entry - the radio beacon that the car emits to sense if a key fob is in the area, happens to also sense other makes, such as Toyota. I had a Prius with its own wireless key system park next to me, and the signal it sent out caused my car to go into total lockdown theft protection mode, which required a flatbed tow to the dealer to restore the system to an unlocked state. This is a factory design flaw (since there is no override to the chain-of-intrusion lockdown mode) and until other people complain about it, they wont issue a software patch to provide an override mode for the customer to reset it with. I hope I never park next to another Prius at the Grand Canyon - the towing hassle would be enormous!
Overall - I like the car and the dealer operates a very good customer-oriented shop.

#1022 of 1807 2005 FX35 RWD (New) Touring/Technology
Apr 05, 2006 (10:10 am)
I recently purchased (3 weeks ago) a new 2005 RWD with touring/technology in Northern California for $35,560 (not including taxes). From what I'm reading it appears this was a good deal? Certainly any dealers with 2005 new vehicles left are aggressive to move them from the lot. I originally used "cars direct" pricing as my leverage and then went from there. Originally wanted the AWD, but really don't think I'll miss that $1500 option that much.

wow. interesting. yeah, carsdirect only shows the AWD '05 for me, and a target price of $700 over invoice. So certainly nowhere near the deal you received.

Ultimately I believe that its the individual dealerships that provide the pricing to Cars Direct. So in some instances the pricing will be there & others it might not In my case, it was actually somewhat dated (week old), but they honored it & then beat it by a few hundred. Also, remember that even at what they claim to be "invoice", the dealer is STILL making a fair amount of profit, so when they sell a car for "X" over invoice, trust me they are still profiting! They should want to move the 2005 models off of the lot, even if at breakeven or at a small loss, I'd think! What I did was go to the www.infinity.com website, look for dealerships, indicate how far you are willing to drive and then pick up the phone & ask if they have any 2005's left over. It worked out well for me! Good luck...
#1025 of 1807 Infiniti finance Lease vs Buy APR

Anybody know how the APR differs between leasing and buying assuming excellent credit? I see that Infiniti is offering a money factor of .00193 (4.632%) on some leases. Can I expect to get anywhere near that on a purchase?

I know that all dealers can use the in-house financing, but they could also work with local banks. I was very surprised to get 5.35% on a 60 month loan when we purchased ours last week.
They actually used a local credit-union. Interestingly enough, it's the same credit union I have available to me through work - and their published rates were no where near that good.
I had secured a 5.6% rate with Capitol One Auto Finance through Costco and thought that was very competitive, but the dealer was able to beat it.
It was definitely much more comfortable knowing what we qualified for through Capitol One, and letting the dealer compete for a better rate. I would highly recommend it!
