#141 of 1807 ncvol:Thule Evolution and EPA rating
Dec 05, 2003 (12:41 pm)
No problem...BTW, I used the Infiniti factory crossbars to mount the cargo box. I'm sure Thule crossbars would work too, if that would be your preference. I went with the factory crossbars for aesthetics, i.e. it flows nicely with the shape of the vehicle.
As for those changes for 2004, does the change in the engine to meet the LEV2 standards only apply to ones sold in California? The EPA's site has the 2004 FX35 with a rating of "4" on their "Green Vehicle Guide"
I believe that the LEV2 standards apply to all 2004 Infiniti FX35s, not just the ones sold in CA. But, it might be a great idea to check with Infiniti.
It could be possible that the EPA just carried over the ratings from the 2003 model into the 2004 ratings, i.e. it was also a '4' for the 2003 models. I can't imagine the change to making the engine at LEV2 standards not making a difference in the rating. But, I could be wrong.
#142 of 1807 Houston Buyer

I am condsidering 04 FX35 - For Houston owners buying out of town - what has been service experience in Houston with car not bought from local dealer? Still getting loaner cars?
Dec 09, 2003 (8:54 am)
I live in Sugar Land and bought my FX in dallas. I go to Southwest Infinti for service and for the most part I have been pretty pleased. I have gotten a free loaner for every service no question asked. They have washed and vacumed my car with every service including the 30 minutes I was there for the Airbag Reprogramming. If there sales staff could even come close to what Grubbs usually offers for there cars for I would have bought there. Only suggestion would be to take the Grubbs license plate frame off when you go in . My service advisor there is Sophia she is not extremely timely with following up but she does make sure every problem is addressed and that I am taken care of. I can't really comment on westside, clear lake or North houston though.

I bought my FX35 from Dallas and I live in Sugar Land. I checked with all four dealers in Houston and none was able to match Infiniti dealer's price in Dallas. North Houston was the worst by the way. Since I bought my vehicle 1 week ago, I will not be able to comment on the service part. However I am positive that SW Infiniti will do a great job since they are the most professional from the bunch.

Dec 16, 2003 (9:19 pm)
Finally picked-up my 2004 diamond grafite/grafite FX35 with sports package (happened to be hard to come across at most of the dealerships?!). Got my deal through Edmunds.com. Didn't want the 2003 (as we all know, you do NOT buy a car the 1st year it comes out). I believe I got the best deal possible, tacking that there are no rebates or promos available on this car. IT JUST TO HOT! I always lease my cars. This one is 39 months with $2,588 out of pocket at signing and $479 a month (sale price $36,637 with money factor of 0.00215, if any one cares). The closest offer I had was about $82 more a month. Let me now if I can give any leads. LOVE MY FX! 20's RULE.
