I just did a VPP purchase for a loaded 2011 QX56. It came with Theater, Touring, and Technology. Black on Black, captain's chairs, and optional wind deflector, cargo/first aid kit, illuminated kick plates, tinted windows, and bumper protector. MSRP was $74,665 and the VPP price was $69,135 also with no dealer prep fees...so I saved $5530+500 dealer prep. I got 3.1% 63 month financing. No trade in. I tried to deal with Sewell in Houston but they would not offer VPP for a QX56 equipped with anything better than the theater package. We googled the internet and found this vehicle in Louisville, KY at Swope Infiniti. They were willing to honor VPP so I drove 2400 miles roundtrip to trailer the vehicle home to Texas. Wife is loving the QX56, especially the technology package components. Thanks for all the informed posts here on this forum which definitely provided the necessary info I needed for my purchase.

I just got our new QX out of Tulsa. We live north of Dallas and also found the Dallas dealers unwilling to honor VPP on the QX with the deluxe package. The folks in Tulsa were great to work with and I paid $500 to have the car delivered to my house in fairview. The whole transaction was very smooth with the paperwork handled via Fedex.
The dealer added pin striping that looks great! I haven't seen this before and am glad it was already on the car when wee purchased it. They also added a clear protection material on the door edges, inside the door handles and the rear bumper. You can't see it but it nicely protect the pain in the high damage areas.
Fyi- almost all of the qx's out of Tulsa are 4wd as opposed to Dallas where 80% are 2wd.
Ask for Ron in sales or Andy the sales manager. Both great!

could you please give details about the deal you got from Tulsa Dealer.

If you have your VPP number just give it to them and they can provide you with the price. If you don't like the deal you don't have to buy it. There isn't any negotiating. I am sure you know all of this as you are probably a dealer given your posting history and the 'private' designations you have on your profile.
The fact is that they were willing to do the deal while the others in the Texas market and some others were not willing to accept VPP. Crest would only negotiate a little off the MSRP on a fully loaded QX56, so we walked. The sales guy - Tux was great at Crest - he kind of got screwed on the deal.
Good luck. We love our QX and we would definitely buy from Tulsa again - with or without VPP, because they were so nice and easy to work with. BTW - my friend who gave us the VPP speaks very highly of Jackie Cooper imports and said they have a great reputation which we validated first hand.
#769 of 871 QX56 Prices for March
Apr 22, 2011 (5:53 pm)
We sold 45 QX56 in March for an average price of $1000 off of MSRP...unlike most Infiniti vehicles which people like to price from invoice up (or down) - the QX is generally priced MSRP - Discount.
The earthquake in Japan has not helped the supply situation that has been bad ever since the vehicle was launched. Even though Infiniti has raised the price 3 times for a total of $2k since it was launched, it is still a great value compared to it's competitors.
Keep in mind, we are in Texas - so the demand maybe higher here than in your area.
#770 of 871 Bought Pre-Owned 2011 QX
Apr 23, 2011 (7:14 am)
Just bought a pre-owned 2011 QX w/ 16,000 miles. $57,300 w/ Touring Pkg, Theater Pkg, rear bumper guard, lighted kick plates, cross bars on luggage rack, clear front end protector and the cargo net options.
Not sure or not if the best deal in the world as I haven't seen too many figures on re-sells yet, but maybe this will help you if you are looking.

Nice - many are going for that at the auction, so you got it at wholesale.

I'm also looking for a used 2011 and appreciate the info. Would you mind sharing the dealership name or was this a private party sale?

Very few out there, but if you search www.autotrader.com or www.cars.com and set the mileage limit to unlimited you should find some. You can have mine for $59k.
