Infiniti FX35, Infiniti FX45, Infiniti FX50, SUV
Feb 28, 2009 (7:55 pm)
I bought a 2008 FX35 brand new last month, and it has been a nightmare. The car was very shaky on the highway and I sent it back to the dealer. They told me the tires were not balanced (!!!) and they balanced the tires for me. Still, the car was shaky and some parts began to rattle. I sent it to another dealer and they told me it turned out there were some problems on the brakes and they changed the brake rotors and pads (my car was less than 700 miles by then and how could the first dealer miss this problem!!!). Now I still feel the car is shaky on the highway. Even on very smooth roads I can feel the steering wheel and the seats shaking. It is just very different from any other car I have driven). I know FX35 has a hard suspension, so I am not sure if this is normal with FX35 (I really don't think so) or there is still something wrong with my car. Can somebody let me know what to do? Thanks!
Btw, I bought the car on Jan 17, and the dealer changed the purchasing date to Dec 31 last year without telling me. Guess they changed the purchase date to get more bonus for last year. I will report it to Infiniti customer service.

Do you have the FX35 sport suspension? I have an 08 FX35 base model and the ride is not shaky at all. In fact, it is extremely smooth and many people who have ridden in it make comments about the comfortable ride. I think if you notice any shakiness at all something is wrong and the dealership that sold you the car should fix it. You should ask to take another 08 out for a drive that is on their lot and compare to yours. That way you can get a better idea if it is just yours or a normal feeling.

No I don't have sports package in my car. I only have Touring package. Thanks for letting me know this. I think something must be wrong with my car. I will go back to the dealer. btw, my dealer is Infiniti Manhattan. My friends, do yourself a favor to avoid this dealer and especially their service department. They are horrible.
#1465 of 1807 March 2009 Loyalty cash?
Mar 11, 2009 (6:23 pm)
I am thinking about getting a 2009 FX35. I've read around the web that there is a $2000 loyalty cash still available for 03/09. Is this correct? Now there is also a $3000 manufacturer to dealer incentive on FX35 according to edmunds.com. Lets say I am a current Infinity owner and I'd like to purchase for cash- can I get these discounts combined? 5K would be sweet!

After three weeks of back and forth, finally got the 2009 FX35 with Deluxe Touring, Navigation, Premium Package, Cargo Organizer, Splash Guards, list price $52685, invoice $48197 according to Edmunds, got the dealer to take $1100 below invoice, with $2000 loyalty cash and $3000 marketing cash, got the car at $42097, plus TTL. Basically that's like getting all the options at no charge! Dealer is Infiniti of North Shore in Glendale/Milwaukee, WI. I had to walk out on them 3 times but the bottom line is totally worth it! Trade in of my 2000 I30 is fair, right in the middle of KBB trade-in value, which is actually pretty good for a dealer trade.

I find your deal very hard to believe. First of all, the 2k loyalty cannot be combined with the 3k marketing cash option. I called the dealer and they confirmed.
#1468 of 1807 $500 Amex gift card on new lease or purchase
Apr 06, 2009 (6:55 am)
I recently puchased a 2008 g35x sedan and Infiniti just sent me an offer in the mail...
Basically, it's an offer code for a $500 Amex gift card on a new purchase or lease of an Infiniti vehicle. (I will also receive $150 for "referring" you) If any of you have recently purchased or leased a new infiniti and would like the $500, please email me at allprimoaol.com. According to the instructions on the flyer, i just log on to the infiniti website and enter the vin # of your car and my car and we both get the gift cards - no strings attached. I dont know anyone personally who is buying an infiniti soon so i figured i'd post the offer up here. Let me know if you have any other questions.
#1469 of 1807 FX35 Quoted Price
Apr 07, 2009 (7:34 pm)
I was quoted 39,525 on an FX35 AWD basic model. MSRP is around 43,600 and Invoice 40,260 according to Edmunds.com. I was hoping to get 3,000 (total financed 37,260) under invoice and take advantage of the 2.9% financing incentive. Has anyone got 3,000 under invoice with financing? I've seen this with cash deals posted here.
#1470 of 1807 fx50?? need info?
Apr 08, 2009 (6:01 pm)
What's the deal with lease rates on the FX50 in southern california? There are a few dealers who have them in stock, but they are pretty hard nosed about dealing. What are the money factors and residuals? I understand that I can get a pretty good deal on an FX35, but I want an FX50. Any help would be appreciated!!
#1471 of 1807 Price for a leftover 2008 FX35?
Apr 17, 2009 (9:58 am)
My Infinti lease is almost up and I've been looking for my next car.
The dealership has a leftover AWD FX35 fairly loaded:
Price history shown to be:
Now $42998 + tax, fees,etc
Still seems a little pricey for a 2008 at this point.
Anyone aware of any 2008 incentives?
