#1153 of 1807 Advice on Canadian prices
Mar 30, 2007 (6:00 pm)
Hello all...I am planning to stop by my local Infiniti dealer in Ontario tomorrow to negotiate a deal for a 2007 FX45. MSRP here is $69,400 for the FX45 with the Technology Package. I'm trying to get this now because our government has just introduced a new gas tax that will see a $2,000 tax applied to the FX45, but it doesn't apply for any dealer inventory from before March 1.
Anyhow Infiniti Canada is offering 3.9% APR leasing for 36/39/48 month leases and the dealership is also tossing in 24 months of free routine maintenance (oil, tire rotations, etc). Both of these are supposed to expire at the end of March.
Couple of questions to all of you...
1) Any idea roughly what the dealer cost is for these vehicles?
2) Any idea what the "typical" amount of discount room is on these?
3) Anyone have knowledge of the April promotions (if any)?
#1154 of 1807 deal or no deal?
Mar 31, 2007 (6:01 am)
I just priced out an fx35 awd with the following
06 FX 35 AWD
cargo cover and splash guards
Selling for 35k (price i was quoted over the phone)
Invoice would be around 38.5k or so.
This was the first price he quoted me. I know the 07's have 2k marketing support right now but does anybody know what the remaining 06s still have available? I want to see what sort of price I should shoot for. I am sort of in an interesting position since I am considering an 07 g35x and then i saw the pricing on the FX so i'm debating between the two! Any thoughts? Thanks

On Tuesday I bought a brand new 2006 FX35 from my local Infiniti dealer. The car was never sold and only had 400 miles on it. With the dealer add ons (front and moonroof airdams, splash guards, pin stripping, and lock nuts) the MSPR was $40,586. I picked it up for $32,841. The best deal I've seen or heard about. The car is a RWD version with the Touring Package. It's black with wheat interior. He has one other just like it.
I love the car! For the price of a well equipped Pilot or Sante Fe - I got the class of the SUV/Crossover category. Plus they gave me full blue book for my Jeep. It took three visits but the dealer was great. I may have to add them to my will.

Can anyone share their experience with this dealer? I've heard various things, good and bad. I'm curious to hear what others are experiencing.

the new one is coming this winter according the infin's website, which I assume is why they are discounting '07s so much...
#1159 of 1807 FX35 2006 versus 2007
Apr 22, 2007 (3:26 am)
Hello. We are looing for a new vehicle for my wife. Yesterday she test drove an Infiniti FX35 at a local dealer, and she seemed to like it. They have a few new 2006 models still available (not used or demo, just never sold, yet) as well as plenty of 2007 to choose from. The salesman said "nothing changed" between the 2006 and 2007 models. I was wondering...
1) did anythign actualy change between the 2006 and 2007 models?
2) would the $2,000 marketing incentive that I have been seeing in this forum also apply to a 2006 model? or just 2007?
3) should we expect to be able to get a deal for much significantly less for a 2006 model?

Just wondering where people are buying their FX-35 around MA for well below invoice. I am trying to decide between the Murano and FX-35 any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance.

There is a new crossover coming from Infiniti - it's the EX. However, it's sized as the FX's little brother and is not a replacement from what I have read. If they go with what is making the car circuit now - it'll have a 300+ horsepower engine.
If you look at post #1155 you see my purchase experience on my new 2006. There are some differences on the 2007, nothing major. The 2007 has an iPod interface. However, it only has 275 horsepower as compared to the 2006's 280.
Lastly, I test drove a couple of Murano's. Nice car but not as good as the FX35. The Murano is underpowered for it's weight. I didn't like all the space above the dashboard and it had a bigger blind spot than the FX.
#1162 of 1807 Evaluating My Best Option from a Financial Perspective
Apr 26, 2007 (9:08 am)
I would like to buy a pre-owned (04, 05, 06) FX35/45 with under 30K miles.
1) In terms of financial saavy, my math calculations indicate that if I buy an '05 for $28K (seems to be avg), if I keep the car for 3 years and sell in 2010, that I can probably get about $22K for it based on what the '03 sells for now and presumably in 2008 when it is 5 years old.
Is my thinking correct? This way, it seems to make sense to buy a preowned for 3 years and think of it as a lease. If I buy it for $28K (figure about $30K out-the-door), then if I sell it for $20K in 2010, the true cost to drive the car for 3 years would be about $10K versus leasing a new '07 for 27 months where it'd cost around $1500 down for fees and $550/month = $15K. So, I could save $5K??? This would then require me to evalouate whether it would cost $5K in wear/tear/maintenance (an '05 may need new tires, breaks, tune-up, etc., so it could balance out whereas an '07 wouldn't need it).
