#1425 of 1807 observation in the mall parking lot
Dec 19, 2008 (9:55 am)
when I visit the local Costco it seems that every other car is a Lexus RX350 (or 330 or 300). No 2009 FXs whatsoever, though there are at least 2 Infiniti dealerships in close proximity. As I mentioned before - very few 09's on the street. I was offered 2008 FX35 black/black with 13500 miles for $29K at a local dealership. I passed. I'll wait till Infiniti comes up with some incentive for the 09's.

Jay, Your are correct.
The RX is still an old reliable SUV in the market for years. It is also the same reason that people prefer the highend Toyota(Lexus), Honda(Acura) and Nissan(Infiniti) in that order.

It wasn't a big deal at all. I did encounter a few minor inconviniences so hopefully you can learn from my experience.
If you plan to buy out-of-state, call ahead or find out if you need to pay the registration and sales tax in the state you're buying or not. In my case, the dealer decided not to charge me California registration nor sales tax. I'll have to pay them here in Nevada when I register my FX here.
However, if you're not registering the vehicle in the state you plan buy, you cannot legally drive the vehicle without a permit. So you can either have it shipped or towed or you'll need to get some sort of temporary moving permit. The dealer should be able to get you one at their dealership for a small fee.
Before you leave the dealership, make sure you get all the documents needed to register you vehicle in your home state. Go to your state's DMV website and find out. Usually, you'll need the bill of sale, the odometer statement, and either the certificate of origin if you paid with cash or the purchase/lease/security agreement if you're financing or leasing. I paid with check and the dealer didn't give me the certificate of origin right away because the wanted to wait until my check cleared. This was a pain in the ss because I couldn't register my FX when I went to the DMV. It took them a week before they sent it to me.
Anyways, if you plan it right, the only hassle is that you'll have to make a trip to the DMV to register the vehicle yourself vs. if you buy it in-state you don't need to do anything since the dealer will register the car for you. In my case, the savings were well worth it.
#1429 of 1807 FX35 vs C350 VS Glk350

These all seem to be priced similar at the end of the day. All are sporty, 2 have hatches. Anyone compare these in their search? (Also Mercedes has incentives, Infiniti does not) (I dont currently have an infiniti)...
#1430 of 1807 Deal I just Got
Dec 23, 2008 (12:38 pm)
Just leased an 09FX35 with Premium Package, Nav Package & Technology Package. Did not get the 20" wheel package since they look good but make the car ride rougher and they will cost more to replace.
Got the 2k loyalty on the drive off plus gave them 3k. 39 month lease. 12k miles. $549 per month (including CA taxes). This was an early (3/08) build (copper with black interior) so the sticker was 49,605. Hard to find ones with the tech package and not the 20" wheels but I did.
seems like they are now dealing and have factory incentives. Went through the internet guys. They claim it was $150 over invoice. Got similar pricing from Miller Infiniti in Van Nuys and Glendale Infiniti.
Car seems great except for glitch in the around view monitor screen and the drivers door needing to be closed harder than it should be. Rides much better than the last models and the tech upgrades are great.

I leased my 2006 FX35 at Glendale Infiniti. But 3k out of pocket? Seems a bit steep considering our economy. What was your APR or money factor on the lease? The $549 doesn't seem too bad for that vehicle and a 39 month lease term. btw - Do all your service at Santa Monica Infiniti.
#1432 of 1807 Clear (smoke) tail lights on the 2009 FX ???
Dec 27, 2008 (2:56 pm)
If this question has already been asked and answered accept my apologies now - but why did Infiniti drop the Clear or Smoke colored (sports package) tail lights on the 2009 FX model?
#1433 of 1807 Deal I've Been Quoted
Dec 29, 2008 (2:02 pm)
I have been quoted the following deal on an '09 FX35 (AWD):
$47,175 Total cost, which I'm told (and believe can confirm) is 1% over invoice. This is on an "older invoice" car, so before the increase for steel costs, etc. BTW, I do not qualify for the customer loyalty incentive. So, is $4k off of MSRP good, or should I try for more?
The internet sales manager is pushing to close before end of the month/year (of course), and suggests that this offer won't be good after 1/1/09. I don't believe him (of course), and was curious what others thought...
#1434 of 1807 Leased 09 AWD FX35
Jan 07, 2009 (10:30 am)
Just letting you know.
I leased an FX35 AWD with Premium package. 12K per month. 36 month lease.
3K down (including first month payment)
475.00 per month.
2K in incentives runs only until Jan 31st. I saw that on the paperwork.
Just letting you know what I have experienced. Hope this helps.
