#1441 of 1807 2009 FX35 RWD prices - is that a good deal?
Jan 12, 2009 (12:26 pm)
My local Infiniti dealer is offering the following deals on 2009 FX35s. I am a brand new memeber and I need some help if someone can tell me if those good deals or representative of the market
2009 FX35 2wd Basic - $35,988 or lease for $3k down/42 mo/$379-mo
2009 FX35 2wd Premium - $37,988 or lease for $3k down/42 mo/$399-mo
2009 FX35 2wd Premium w/ Navigation - $40,998 or lease for $3k down/42 mo/$449-mo
They only have like 1 or 2 of each but they are brand new models with no mileagge on them - no demos. Is that a good deal?

Sounds like a good deal to me. Invoice on the 2WD with nav and premium is around 44200. If this is a "new invoice" vehicle - meaning it was made after the mid-year price increase - then you've been quoted a great deal. If is an "old invoice" vehicle (made ealier in the year), then you can do better. The price increase was about $1250, and you can really only tell by the manufacture date and/or the MSRP. If the MSRP on the car they're quoting you is around $47,800, the it's a new invoice vehicle and you've got a good price.

#1444 of 1807 True Market Value?
Jan 17, 2009 (7:38 pm)
True Market Value? Really! I just priced an '09 FX35 for my zip code two minutes ago (i.e. late Saturday night, Jan 17, 2009) and Edmund's TMV was $470 below MSRP - really? Is that for real? Is the FX35 selling so well that the best I can hope for is about $500 off MSRP? For real?
Anyone bought one in the Houston area recently? What kind of discounts can one really expect in Houston today? Thanks.

I think the 'true market value" is around invoice price. I've bought 3 new cars so far: Civic, Accord and Camry and I paid invoice for the first two and $200 below invoice for the Camry. I do not see any reason to pay over invoice for the FX. They are not selling well and they are pricey if to compare to competitors. I'm looking to get an FX35, however I'm still waiting for better deals.
#1446 of 1807 2008 FX 35 Option combo question
Jan 23, 2009 (5:27 am)
I'm looking at a used 2008 FX 35 that has the Navigation system, but the seller alleges that it does not have the Technology package. When I use the "price it with options" feature on Edmunds, it does not look as if this is even possible (i.e. in order to get Nav you had to have Tech). Additionally, it has the sunroof (which appears only in the touring package on Edmunds), but it doesn't have homelink (which is also part of the touring package). Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Is it possible that edmunds didn't have the correct option packages listed?

I have had trouble using Edmunds for options packages - usually there are small differences. I went to Infiniti.com and built a new 09 FX35. It allows you to add the navigation package without adding the technology package. However, if technology package is selected then it requires the addition of navigation. I'm guessing this applies to 2008 models as well. It sounds like the seller is correct that it can have the navigation w/o technology package. I would go by Infiniti's website as far as what exactly comes with each package.

nav was available as a stand alone option. check out reviews for 2008 ps;at12000 miles w/ 89-93 octane avg 20.1-21.4 mpg mix hghwy-cty[much better than advertised]

Actually the Technology Package is somewhat rare in the '09s; there are very few Premium, Nav, Tech models out there.
#1450 of 1807 Is this a good deal?
Jan 30, 2009 (10:17 am)
Very little forum traffic on FX35s right now, must not be selling all that well? However dealers in the Houston area are not giving them away.
Best deal I have come up with is about $1700 or so ABOVE Invoice (adjusted for the currrent $3000 Incentive to the dealer) - I guess technically I'm about $1300 below Invoice. I guess I had hoped for a deal closer to the adjusted Invoice (i.e. about $2500, or more, below current Invoice figures).
