#145 of 221 VPP Question
Sep 04, 2012 (3:35 pm)
How does the dealers verify VPP? Can you tell them you work for one of the companies that has VPP and will they take you word for it? Someone I know did this and the dealer did not ask for any proof at that time but called the next day asking for an id or business card. He never responded.

You have to get the code from your HR department.. then, register on-line..
That will take you to a screen to print-out.. my dealer was adamant about having that..

Banes1 - just joined the forum and saw your post that you gotthe base for $39K +TTL.
Do you mind my asking where you are located? I'm in Scottsdale, AZ looking to buy a base this month and figure I'll probably have to head out of state as all the cars I've purchased over the past 10 years have been much cheaper out of state.

Can you let me know the dealer details?

I am in PA but I don't think there are anymore base models available within 500 miles of PA. I also read in another JX forum that Infiniti is not making anymore JX35 base.

We also verify employment with business card, check stub, company ID, etc.
If the dealer doesn't get the proper proof - they won't get reinbursed from Infiniti, so they just "gave a car away"....

Yes, VPP is the invoice of the vehicle. More options there are the bigger discount you are getting....if priced over invoice then not getting VPP. In the end, the dealer puts the VIN into the computer system which calculates the VPP price for the customer - makes it look official for the customer.

Sewelllgsm, when your dealership takes a security deposit for a car to be ordered, what paperwork do you typically provide the customer? An order sheet of some sort? When can a VIN# be supplied to match the car that was ordered? I didn't receive much documentation and my worry is that they would make a mistake on the order entry point, have a car built that is missing some key things that I would want to be "on the sticker" and then we'd have a customer satisfaction issue where I would not be able to "check the best scores" on the Infiniti survey = loss/loss on both ends.
I'm trying to be pro-active in wanting a build sheet obtained so that I know they ordered the correct car. Is that unreasonable? As it is, they are upfront about stating that it may take 12 weeks for the JX to come in (tech, deluxe touring, premium, theater, tow hitch, cargo package, roof rails, crossbars). I'm ok with that so long as the car ordered is exactly what I want. But if takes 12 weeks and then they come up with the wrong car, all hell is breaking loose...
Thanks in advance for any input you can provide.

Hi m3armand -
Looks like we are in the same situation. I placed a deposit for a JX order this weekend &was told it could take 12 weeks.
I have not received any documentation or build sheet - - all I have are my emails back & forth with the salesperson & a confirmation of the deposit charged to my credit card. The salesman told me the dealer was allowed 5 orders per month and that they place orders on the first day of the month - such that my order wouldn't be placed until 10/1 (of course, this was told to me as they attempted to sell me a model that was in stock vs. what I wanted ordered so this may not be true). Were you told something similar?
Like you, I'm a little concerned as this is the first time I've ordered a car from the dealer.

This is probably the 11th car that I've ordered. And this is the first time that I don't have an "official looking" document. I took a "leap of faith" given the Infiniti reputation. Previous cars I've ordered were of the BMW, Porsche, MB, Audi, Cadillac, and Toyota (most painful). So I hope Infiniti doesn't give me a bad taste for Japanese cars...
