I bought in the DC area and walked out the door with an EX35 for over 10k off MSRP. Not sure why you think it's a hoax. I had one dealer who wouldn't do such significant discounting but they didn't get my business because they played around too long (maybe they would have ultimately come down) and all the other dealers were willing to tell me the bargain basement price without much haggling. I'm not seeing any posts where people are paying just 5k or 6k off of MSRP nowadays. It's always more. And it should be. Dealers have a dozen or two of these '08 models sitting around, and they've been there for months and months and months. And the car has not been popular by a longshot. Personally I would not have bought the EX35 for just a 5k discount. I bought it because of the discounting, and I think others are of the same mind. Thought it was a very good car for 32 grand. I wish I could've waited for the 2010 though. Curious to see if there'll be the same level of discounting for that new iteration.
I think in the next month or two, for anyone looking to scoop up an '08, the issue is going to be choice. I think people are grabbing the less optioned models (MSRP from $39k to $43k) and there could be mostly fully optioned cars out there (MSRP $44k to $46k).

And I didn't get any loyalty money. I wasn't coming from an Infiniti. I didn't get the 0.9% financing with my deal. 4.99% instead.
Not sure why you mention tax, since I think the numbers people are giving are not inclusive of tax. When someone says 10k off MSRP, they mean that their $43k vehicle was sold to them for $33k plus tax and tags. The $33k would include freight.
#297 of 583 ATL area deals?
Apr 11, 2009 (6:16 pm)
I recently started shopping for an EX35. I have been looking for months for something small and not so SUV-ish and really like this car. I test drove today at Nalley Infiniti in Marietta, but the initial offer was nothing like I've seen posted here.
I test drove a Journey with premium pkg & nav - MSRP was $41,300, dealer knocked off $3500 for cash and $1000 if I financed and added back in $600 doc fees. By the time I added $2500 tax/tags, I was looking at around $40k OTD if I financed or $37.5k if I paid cash. I like the car, but not that much. Anyone have any details on ATL area dealers offering $10 off MSRP? If not, I'm willing to drive within about a 300-mile radius to save some $$.

Did you go into the dealer and tell them this is how much you are willing to pay?
Don't have them give you a number. They aren't going to give you the lowest number. Or you can email the Infiniti dealerships in your area with the number that you are willing to accept.

These $10,000+ off are for the 2008 models. Can you get $10,000 off for the 09 models? If not, how much do you think we can get off? Thanks.

I do not believe that there will be a 2009 model. Infiniti released the 2008 model to overwhelmingly medicore sales numbers. Infiniti 'held the presses' after the dismal sales numbers and poor feedback about the rear legroom. They are 'reworking' the rear seats (reportedly), and will be releasing a 2010 model with more rear legroom. I do not know when the 2010 will be released. Does anyone know the release date?

Infiniti of Orlando told me the 2009's will be in at the end of May.

I don't think there are going to be any 2009s. Unless they do 2009.5, but I doubt it because I don't think they are ready with the adjustments and there are still lots of '08s on the lots to clear out. I heard that the next out will be the 2010s, which will have the reworked back seats to add some legroom. I think it'll have the Euro spec engine also, but am not positive. I wouldn't count on huge discounting on those. For the ATL person, the best deals seem to come after the person requested quotes online (you can do this through this site by pricing out a car) and dealt with the online departments to get prices from a host of dealers.

My price was $7.00 over invoice, less the rebates ($5,500). I wasn't a current owner so I couldn't get the $2,000, if such an incentive existed. I love the car. Put the 2,000th mile on it today.
#304 of 583 EX35 Journey RWD in SoCal?
Apr 25, 2009 (11:10 am)
I am planning to buy a EX35 Journey RWD in SoCal area. Does anybody here wanna to share their negotiation experiences particularly in this area? Like which dealer may have better bargaining room and good attitude? I was trying to follow the posting thread, but it seems like the final price can be off the MSRP from 15% to 5%. It really makes me hard to decide the bottom price. Thank you in advance if you can share your experiences.
