#727 of 1339 New 2007 M35
Mar 02, 2008 (6:24 pm)
I just got a new 2007 M35. I had been looking for one in Umbria Gray with the Wheat interior here in Atlanta, but no one had what I wanted. I did some research and found that Modern Infiniti in Winston Salem, NC had two of them with exactly what I wanted. I thought I would let you all know the deal I got, because I am pretty happy with my purchase. I paid $36.5K, and with taxes, tags, etc, the OTD price came to $39.5K. This is with the Journey and Technology package. Sticker was $46.9K. I think I got a good deal, and my salesman could not have been better. I know it's a 2007, but for the price, I couldn't see paying that much more for a 2008.

Test drove a loaded 08 M45S today, the price was 57k then the manager came in offered 55k and was like how about if I say 50k.
I was really looking at 550i, e550 and the LS460 so I told him I couldn't decide right then in there. The car is a nice ride for the price.
#729 of 1339 Lease I Was Offered
Mar 09, 2008 (6:08 pm)
I was offered a 2008 M35 (rear wheel drive, not 4WD) with Sport Package. It also had the Technoloty package. Car also had NAV system. Pretty much loaded. Giving the dealer $1,000 for a 39 month lease with 15K miles/year, price per month they quoted was $670 plus tax. That sounded kind of high to me. What should this car lease for with that little money down and 15K miles/year?

I bought an 06 M35 yesterday because of the Infiniti name, and my past experience w infiniti, but it seems that on this site at least, you folks are having some issues. Should I expect pain or pleasure from this car? Thanks - I paid $28,500 including TTL and its loaded. has 40k miles FYI.

That sounds like a good deal. I got an 06 M35 with 62,850 miles for $24,900 including CA sales tax, registration and the extended 100,000 mile warranty. It came with all the major options except navigation and a DVD Player. I've gone about 2,500 miles and it runs great, no problems except the rotors are warped so there is some steering wheel shake when braking at over 60 mph.

in my experience (I unloaded an '06 M35X) the rotors are not the problem. I don't know what IS the problem, but several turned rotors and new rotors did not fix the problem. It may be related to the steering rack as my '07 has the new rack (the '06 has known problems with the rack and "nibbling" on center steering ... needs constant steering input) and zero shimmy problems. Maybe you'll be luckier than I.

I heard that the steering rack problem is only with the sport model, not the base model that I have. I'm going to need new front and rear brakes with rotor turning this year (65,500 miles on original brakes and rotors) and if that doesn't fix the shaking problem, then I'll get a new steering rack under the extended warranty.
Also, if the steering rack is the problem then why doesn't the steering wheel shake all the time over 60 mph, not only when using the brakes?
#734 of 1339 2008 M35S purchase
Mar 23, 2008 (1:43 am)
Turned in my leased 2006 M35 two months early and bought a 2008 M35S with Tech package. Even with the dealer having to pay the last two lease payments on the 2006 M35, I was able to get him down to $46,186 off a $49,505 MSRP. Edmunds has the invoice on this car at $45,197 and TMV at $48,040 so I thought I was doing pretty good considering the net out of the lease was probably slightly negative with the residual plus two remaining lease payments. The current Infiniti financing deal of 2.9% for 60 months (thru 3/31) seemed to be worth about $3,000 in buying power (price of car to get same monthly payment) compared to typical new car interest rates currently available on some of the other cars in this class.
I went with the 2008 M35 because I liked the 2006 M35 that I drove for 34 months and the pricing at this time seemed to be right considering the current new car market.

I had the steering rack replaced on my 06 M35 Sport, and there is a world of difference. Solid on line feel, far less input needed on typical roads. I know it's not intuitive that this would meake a diff, but it clearly does. Anyone with this year/ model who experiences the jerky steering and groove tracking reported here should get it done.
Also replaced the Bridgestones with Michelin Pilot Sport All Seasons- the only A/S tire made in the oddball 245/40/19" size...highly recommended, tremendous improvement in ride and noise.

Looking to turn in my 06 M35X for a New 08 M35X. I have the Xenon lights, Bluetooth, heated and cooled seats and the back up camera. Currently paying 595.00 mo for 39 months 15K. I am over milage by 2K. I have until September 8th but I would go earlier.
I would like the same equipment on the same car but with a 36 or 39 month lease. What are the best deal anyone has gotten recently?
