OK, I'm new here. I just picked up a Brand New 2003 (yes, you read that right) FX45 Premium, no tech. It's Laser Red with Graphite interior. I paid $34k + tax, so I hope that's a good deal. Too late now. Sticker was just under $47k.
It only had 761 miles on it. The warranty period started when I picked it up. It was late at night when I got it and my wife was waiting for me at home. I had to take the long way home just to make sure I avoided any "construction zones".
Thanks for the welcome. I've been hanging around here for several weeks now reading up on what to expect. After years driving junky used cars every day, the problems with the FX should be a treat for me! I'm very frugal (wife says cheap), so it wasn't an easy decision to part with this much money. There's been a fight going on between my wallet and my right foot. I guess my foot won.
My dealer begged me not to post their name. I think he is embarassed that they hadn't sold it. But they are in the same town that I live in. At the start of the month, they had a twin to my car ('03 FX45, red). They sold it a week or two ago. Now they only have '04's and '05's. I'll get some pics posted as soon as my wife lets me. She's making me run errands in our "old" Dodge Durango while the cheeta sits home alone. A couple of years ago, I hit a deer on halloween night. Because of this "anniversary", I'm not allowed to drive the good car. She at least let me drive the family to church in the FX.
Hey, You'll love it! I, too, just got a red '03 fx45 Oct. 2, Mine had 15100 miles on it. The dealer told me it had been on the lot for 90 days and they were eager to move it. It is loaded--premium package, tech w/ DVD, cross rails, etc. I paid 37,600. I wonder why red seems to move slower than other colors? Anyway enjoy.
The best thing about an FX of any color is the attention you get. There is nothing out there like it. That's what drew me to the car. I love attention as long as it isn't from someone in a car with flashing lights!
