"Jere and I wanted to express our appreciation to INFINITI of Tacoma at Fife and the innovative "Shares" program that we were able to participate in during our recent auto purchase. When we were contemplating the purchase of our new-to-us car, one of the things that ran through our minds was, "Will we get a fair deal on our trade in?" Since we don't know the real value of our old car, it's easy to assume that the dealership will have the advantage and that we'll end up on the short side of the deal
We were amazed to learn about the Shares program, where the dealership agrees to give us a portion of any profits they are able to realize if the re-sale of our trade-in is greater than what they offered us! And even more amazing was the call we received last weekend, letting us know that there was a check waiting for us because INFINITI of Tacoma WAS able to sell our trade in for more than was anticipated.
"We are extremely pleased with the exemplary staff and service we received in our auto purchase--and the Shares program is the icing on the cake. Thank you for a very positive car-buying experience!"
Wende & Jere Sanderson
“I recently was looking to step out of my current car situation. I tried various other dealerships to see if they wanted to purchase my vehicle. When I stopped by INFINITI of Fife, I was greeted by friendly staff and quickly received an offer. Infiniti of Fife paid off my loan and I received a check for a portion of what the car sold for. Highly recommend bringing your vehicle by for an estimate. Thank you INFINITI of Fife!”
“The low pressure sales environment was such a great experience and they did an excellent job showing me all the bells and whistles on my new car. Than a month later I got a call from INFINITI of Tacoma telling me that they sold the car I traded in and they had a check for me for $1,500 for my part of the profit!”
I’ve leased INFINITI cars for 6 years now. I love their vehicles. It’s very comfortable and luxurious to drive. Our experience with the staff at INFINITI of Tacoma has been excellent. Everyone is helpful and friendly, always willing to help with our car needs. They will always have our business.
I must say that I have always dreaded buying a car because I don’t like to spend my entire day at a dealership haggling over a price, waiting on finance, filling out paperwork etc. I must say that INFINITI of Tacoma at Fife has made the car buying process so easy. I recently purchased my second car from this dealership and was amazed at the fair pricing, efficiency and overall ease during all aspects of the transaction. I was able to handle most of the transaction via phone and email. Once the terms were agreeable by both parties I had an appointment to sign the paperwork and pick up my new car. The customer service was above and beyond my expectations – I even received money back as profit sharing from my old car that I returned to them.
Easiest 200.00 ever! Already had our car inspected, so we only had to drop it off. Recommend.
"The Shares Program worked great for me and my family. Not only did we get fair market value for our Trade-in, but we also got $1,400.00 back! Thank you INFINITI of Tacoma!"
The Kendall Family
live in Everett and heard about this. The only issue was getting a ride back home. They had my 200.00 ready for me when I arrived. Did some paperwork and then they drove me all the way back to Everett. What great service! Highly recommend!
"I came into the INFINITI Dealership to actually look at a vehicle that was advertised. I was not going to purchase this vehicle but, after talking to the salesperson and test driving the vehicle and also, the finance person putting together the deal I decided to purchase it. They gave me top dollar for my vehicle. The sales people and finance person were fantastic. There was no pressure and no hidden fees. I also was informed about the Shares Program which was an extra surprise. I never thought I would trade a car in and get money back from the sale. I am totally surprised when I received the call about the check. This has been a fantastic experience. I will definitely spread the word."
Heard their radio ad and inquired. We got $200.00 for just dropping it off at their location. They called us three days later and told us that they did buy our QX50 back from INFINITI so, hopefully, more $ will be headed our way. Cannot recommend enough. First class operation and people
"I like the program and will be bringing my cars here to trade in from now on. And I have been telling my friends and family about the program as well."
Absolute no brainer. $200 free as advertised. They obviously want to buy cars. If not, they wouldn’t pay 200.00. When I called to verify, they told me that they offer this because they want an opportunity to buy cars. Makes perfect sense.
"Imagine our surprise when Joe Paulhus of INFINITI of Tacoma at Fife called to say that he had a $1300 check for us! It was part of INFINITI's Shares Program, where the dealer and customer share in the profits from the subsequent sale of a trade-in vehicle. To Summarize: We bought a new vehicle at a good price, got a fair initial price (based on Kelly Blue Book valuation) for our trade-in vehicle, and now we are getting an extra check as part of the Shares Program. We must also say that the entire purchase experience at this dealership was casual with friendly knowledgeable staff helping us find the right car. At no time did we feel pressured to purchase. This has been BY FAR the best car buying experience we have ever had! We are VERY PLEASED with INFINITI of Tacoma at Fife from start to finish."
Gary L. Stiegelmeyer
By merely returning our expired INFINITI lease there, we got $200 and another $848.00 after they sold our old Q-50. That was definitely worth driving an extra 30 minutes from Bellevue to drop off our car. 20 minute process and they didn’t try to push us into anything while we were there. Top notch staff. Recommend.
"Our old QX56 wasn’t being driven much anymore and was just taking up space. So we decided, instead of continuing to pay insurance and maintenance, that we should sell it. We tried on our own but were not having any luck. We decided to inquire about just selling it to a dealer. When we were doing our research we noticed that INFINITI of Tacoma offered a vehicle shares program. So we called and spoke to Steve, the General Sales manager, and he explained in detail how it worked and why they do this. We asked how they could assure us that we were getting a fair price for our car. He urged us to take it to CarMax or another dealer to get a second opinion before deciding what to do. Not only did we get $750 more that CarMax offered when they sold our old car, they called and told us to be expecting another $938.00 check for our shares portion. That’s $1688.00 more than we would have received if we hadn’t shopped around before deciding to sell our old car. Thank you for such a great experience."
Nella and Richard Pugh
What a great program! I had no idea that I could get paid to trade in my lease! Such an easy experience and will definitely influence where I get my next vehicle.
"We were shopping online for our next INFINITI and noticed that INFINITI of Tacoma offers a program where we can share in the profit when they sell our old car. At first we thought that it was just a gimmick and that either they were going to offer us much less for our trade in or there would be some other catch. But, after reading the reviews and looking at the pictures of their customers with their checks, we decided to make the trip from Seattle to Tacoma. We already had quote on our car from the dealer where we originally purchased our last INFINITI from. INFINITI of Tacoma’s appraisal was not only higher, but, when they sold our old car, we got another 1568.00 back from their shares program! Thanks for making it easy and fun to buy a car. We have and will continue to tell everyone we know about our great experience, as well as their trade in shares program."
Deborah and Keith Mitchell
Great deal, Great people, Great concept.
"I recently was given a company car to drive. So, instead of paying for a car that I wasn’t using, I decided to sell it. I really didn’t want to deal with the hassle of selling it myself. A co-worker who recently purchased a car from them told me about the shares program at INFINITI of Tacoma. I called and spoke with Joey, the used car manager, to make sure that since I just wanted to sell my car would it qualify for the shares program. He assured me that it did, and, when we started to talk about values, he made it clear that they thought it was a good idea to get some other offers to compare with theirs to see if it made sense for me. I went to CarMax to get an offer on my car. It was 600.00 less than INFINITI of Tacoma gave me. Now I have a chance to get some more $ back when they sell my old car. I would recommend Joey and INFINITI of Tacoma to anyone looking to sell or trade in their car."
I have leased many cars over the years but I have never had a dealer pay me to drop off my car, not to mention sharing the profit with me on any of the cars of mine that they're-sold. Kudos to INFINITI of Tacoma for such an ingenious program.
"Couldn’t have been easier! I was handling my mother’s estate and needed to sell her car. I saw the shares program online and inquired. Joey, the used car manager, explained the program in detail. They gave me 2 offers: one from them and the other from KBB. Theirs was much higher. Plus, it went into their vehicle shares program. They sold my mother’s old car fairly quickly and I got a check back for 1278.00. I highly recommend their vehicle shares program."
They just don’t do this on lease cars. They also offer this service if you trade in a car or just want to sell them your old car. It is a very cool concept and one that I have never heard of.
Being a business owner myself I can really appreciate the concept here. Anytime that you can find a way to attract new customers and of course retain your current customers by offering them something that absolutely no one else offers is very smart. Passing on $ to your customers instead of outside companies makes total sense.
What a no brainer idea! I wouldn’t be surprised if other dealers follow INFINITIof Tacoma’s lead. Thanks Mark and all the INFINITI of Tacoma staff for making it easy and fun!
You have to drop off your lease somewhere. So you may as well get something in return.
Check it out for yourself. It’s a win win. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
We just received our shares check from INFINITI of Tacoma: over 1200.00 plus the 200.00 they gave us for dropping off our car there when our Q50 lease was up. My husband and I were a little skeptical about the shares at first. But, for 200.00 just to drop off the Q50 there instead of the dealer we leased it from, was worth the drive to Fife. Then when we heard that they did secure our old Q50 from INFINITI financial and that they re-sold the car and a check was on its way for 1237.00. We were floored. It couldn’t have been a smoother process. Joey and Chris made it simple. We have told all of our friends about their Shares Program. Thanks again!
The Johnson Family
At first I thought that the $200.00 was just a ploy to get people in the door to really push into a new or used car, and that there would be some kind of catch for the money. But, after reading the reviews, I decided to make the drive from north Seattle to Tacoma. They made it simple and I did receive my check for $200.00 a couple of days later. BTW I did lease another INFINITI from Ariel at INFINITI of Tacoma. Best auto experience EVER!
This is the real deal folks! They have come up with a fantastic program here. I am happy to announce that they did re-sell my old car and sent me another check for 986.00. So driving from Monroe to Fife gave me another $1186.00 that I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere else. Kudos to the INFINITI of Tacoma staff.
I never thought about shopping around when any of my previous leases were up. I always just dropped it off at the dealer where I leased it from. This is my 2nd INFINITI lease and, since I live up north, Fife was not a place that I would normally consider dropping off my old car; but, after hearing about this, I gladly drove the extra 25 miles for $200.00 and a chance for more. I have and will continue to recommended INFINITI of Tacoma.
We leased our last INFINITI in Dallas TX. So, when our lease was coming due ,we started to shop around for our next INFINITI. We saw that INFINITI of Tacoma pays $200 to customers who drop off their expired lease with them. So we drove down there and dropped it off. We were so impressed that we decided to lease another INFINITI from them instead of our local dealer. My husband and I were very impressed with their laid back approach. We highly recommend INFINITI of Tacoma.
Linda and John Cooper
Why wouldn’t you do this? $100 just to drop it off with a chance to get even more of your money back. It’s a no brainer!!
"By far the best car buying experience that I have ever had. Steve and his team made it simple and easy. They didn’t pressure me whatsoever. When I received a check for over 1300.00 from the sale of my old car I was amazed. I have told so many friends about this. At first they didn’t believe me. In fact, some of my co-workers had to pull up their site to see if it was true. I highly recommend INFINITI of Tacoma and their entire staff to anyone shopping for a car. Thank you!"
It would have been closer to drop it off at the local dealer, but for $100 and a chance of getting even more $ after the fact made it very easy to spend another 30 minutes driving to Tacoma.
We leased our INFINITI at another dealer and were unaware of all the options that we had to drop off when our lease was up. We assumed that we had to return it to the original dealer that leased us the car. We love the INFINITI product and were looking to lease another. When we were comparing prices and specials online we went to the INFINITI dealer in Tacoma’s website. We noticed that they had a lease return section on their website. It not only explained that we could drop off our current lease at any INFINITI Dealer. But we did notice that INFINITI of Tacoma would give us 100.00 for just dropping it off there, and if they were to purchase our old car it would then be enrolled in their Shares program. So we dropped off our old INFINITI and leased another one. Joe Corrado the General sales manager was wonderful and we had the absolute best experience. Absolutely Zero pressure from beginning to end. We have already recommend INFINITI of Tacoma and their shares program. Thank you again for making it easy and enjoyable.
Kathy and Jim K.
Seamless process. I made an appointment. I dropped it off, did the paperwork and they drove me back home. Then they sent me a check for 100.00. Hopefully they will win the bid on my old INFINITI. Thanks INFINITI of Tacoma.
"What a great program! Not only did they give us a lot more $ for our trade-in than the other dealer we visited but, when they sold it, we got back another 893.00. Plus, it was the smoothest car buying process that we have ever experienced. We highly recommend Steve and his staff. Thank you!!"
The Campbell Family
$100 for just dropping it off, and a ride home. With a chance for even more $ down the road. What’s there to think about!
"We went to Car-Max and got a quote from Carvana as well. Not only did they give us more than both of them when they sold my father's old truck, they sent us back a check for over 1200.00. Would recommend!"
Like many people I was skeptical at first. I was very concerned that they would really try and push me into leasing another car when I was there. I told them when I made the appointment that I didn’t need another car. My company provides me one now. But that wasn’t the case at all. They understood my needs and didn’t try to sell me another car. And of course they did send me my 100.00 shortly thereafter. First class people and establishment.
"Skeptical? Don’t be! They actually do this. Easy process and no sales pressure. They just wanted to buy my car. Recommend."
We live in Everett so it was a longer drive to drop off than we wanted to make, but it was worth it. Quick and easy process we were in and out of there in less than 30 minutes. Received our 100.00 check the following week. Then we were notified that they did end up purchasing our old INFINITI And 5 weeks later we got another check for 832.00. Thanks again Joe and everyone at INFINITI of Tacoma.
Kathy and Brett H.
"Being a business owner myself, I really like the innovativeness of their vehicle Shares Program. Definitely recommend."
We have purchased and leased many cars over the years and this is the first time that we have ever received any $ back when one of our old cars was re-sold… We were both SHOCKED! when a check arrived for over 1,000.00, not to mention the 100.00 that we already received for dropping it off there.
Jim and Lavonne F.
"For us buying a car is like going to the dentist but, I have to be honest, we have never been so impressed buying a car in our life. From beginning to end, the process was seamless, and their employees couldn’t have been more friendly. Absolutely zero pressure, and their vehicle Shares Program really paid off for us. Getting back over 1200.00 for the sale of our trade-in was a fantastic bonus. We have never heard of any dealer that offers anything like this. Clayton and Steve were a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again!"
Lisa and Robert Gustafson
I hardly ever leave reviews. Not because I haven’t received good service before, it just isn’t something I usually do. But I have to be honest this was by far the best experience that my wife and I have ever had at an auto dealership. And the shares program really paid off for us. We dropped off are INFINITI lease and like everyone else that has left a review received our 100.00 check later that week. They did in fact purchase from Infiniti financial our old car, and sure enough we got another check for over 1600.00 We couldn’t believe it when we received the $. We both looked at each other and said WOW! at the same time. Thanks for the extra holiday cash INFINITI of Tacoma.
Ruth and Fred F.
"Receiving $ back for the sale of the car I traded-in was not only unexpected, but it was exactly as advertised by them! I am a believer."
I was very skeptical at first, I was concerned that the only reason for the 100.00 was to try and sell me another car. Kind of like going to a time-share presentation where they give you a free gift and make you go through some sales pitch. But it wasn’t like that at all in fact quite the opposite. They did the paperwork in a timely fashion. They were very nice and not at all pushy. I would recommend INFINITI of Tacoma to anyone.
"We received more $ for our car in trade than their competitor in Bellevue and a free lifetime powertrain warranty that the other INFINITI dealers didn’t even offer. And. to top it off. after they sold our old INFINITI they sent us another 982.00. We couldn’t be happier with our experience at INFINITI of Tacoma. Steve and his team are FIRST CLASS!"
Dennis and Sue Warner
Getting $100 for something that I had to take care of anyway wasn’t a very difficult decision. Plus I didn’t even know about the shares program until I arrived there and did the paperwork. So I dropped off my car and then got the $100 in the mail, and less than a month later I got another $1234.00 check. I never really thought that I would get another check back so when the 1234.00 check arrived I was BLOWN AWAY! Thank you again.
"Skeptical? Don’t be. Their Shares Program is the real thing. We just received our shares check from them. We had been watching our old car on their website and, the next thing you know, it wasn’t on there anymore. Sure enough, they gave us a call to let us know that they did sell our old car and that the check was on its way. Can't compliment them enough. VERY nice people."
We made an appointment and dropped it off. They didn’t try to push us into anything like other dealers that we have dealt with in the past. However we were so impressed that we did end up leasing our next INFINITI from them. We received our 100.00 from them promptly and they did in fact win the bid on our old INFINITI. And sure enough we received another check for over 1187.00. I can’t tell you how impressed we were with everyone there. We would definitely recommend INFINITI of Tacoma and their shares program.
Betty and Dick G.
"If you have an extra car that you want to sell, give their Shares Program a look. I took their advice and had my car appraised elsewhere to see if they were going to pay me a fair price. I got a much better offer from INFINITI of Tacoma; and, when they sold my old car, here came a check for another 873.00. AS advertised!"
Dropped off my car, they drove me home, they sent me 100.00. So easy.
When we heard the commercial on the radio, we were a little skeptical. But, after going to their website and seeing all of their customers holding their checks (and reading the reviews), we decided to make the drive from Bellevue. We had already been given a trade appraisal from our local INFINITI dealer. INFINITI of Tacoma’s offer was $500 more than their competition; and then, after they sold our old car, they sent us another $952.00. Steve and all of the staff were wonderful to deal with, and we never felt pressured in any way. WILL RECOMMEND.
Margaret and Hugh Wilson
We got more for our car upfront than the other INFINITI dealers and another 1100.00 after they sold our old SUV. Plus a free lifetime warranty on the INFINITI that we purchased from them. It definitely pays to shop around. No pressure and very friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Lisa and Bradley Johnson
Not a GIMMICK. They actually do this! My husband and I just received our shares check for over 1500.00. We didn’t know anything about this program until we arrived at their location. They were right in line with the other INFINITI dealers on what they paid us for our trade-in. Great staff as well. Recommend for sure.
Nathan and Lydia Norquist
I heard an advertisement on the radio for this and decided to check it out for myself. I did get my car appraised at Car-Max and went online and received an offer from Carvana as well. They paid me over 1,000 more for my car than Carvana and Car-Max. Then, when they sold my old truck, they sent me another 1243.00. Thanks!
Shop around when you trade in or sell your car, folks. We are sure glad that we did. By just spending a few hours getting comparisons, INFINITI of Tacoma paid us 1500.00 more than Car-Max; and we have a chance to get more $ back when they re-sell our old car. Very nice people to deal with as well. Will recommend.
Bernard and Mary Washington
OMG. Steve from INFINITI of Tacoma just called to let us know that we had over $1600 coming back to us from the sale of our old car. My husband and I were amazed. We can tell you firsthand that their vehicle Shares Program is for real! Thank you.
Paula and Robert Webb
We received a much higher offer from INFINITI of Tacoma so we sold our car them. Next thing you know: here came our Shares check for another $1266. First-class people and operation.
Daniel and Jill Jentel
Their vehicle Shares Program paid-off big time for me! $500 more than Car-Max was willing to pay me and, after they sold my old SUV, I got another $1418.00. That’s almost 2K more than I would have gotten if I would have sold it anywhere else. Very easy process as well. Thanks.
I recently was looking to step out of my current car situation. I tried various other dealerships to see if they wanted to purchase my vehicle. When I stopped by Infiniti of Fife, I was greeted by friendly staff and quickly received an offer. Infiniti of Fife paid off my loan and I received a check for a portion of what the car sold for. Highly recommend bringing your vehicle by for an estimate. Thank you Infiniti of Fife!

Like most people when we hear the word FREE: I think there is some kind of catch. So I called to make sure that there was not one, and they said there was ZERO obligation and no purchase was required. Sure enough, when we showed up, they had our $200 check ready . We signed a couple documents, and were on our way. They contacted us two days later and told us that they did purchase our car back from INFINITI financial; and that, once it was through the service process, our Q-50 would be online so that we could track it. Two weeks later I noticed that it wasn’t on their website. Joey. the used car manager. called me the next day and said that they had sold our Q-50 and that they had a check for 788.00 for us. I can honestly say that the nearly 1,000 we got from them was FREE!!!! Thanks, JOEY.
Samantha and Dan Schmidt
$1600.00 + that I wouldn’t have gotten if I had returned my car where I originally leased it. Plus, they were all so nice and accommodating. I will sing their lease shares program praises from the rooftops.
My lease was expiring so I made arrangements to have my car inspected at my home (II recommend that you do this). Anyway, I still had to make arrangements to drop off the car. I heard that the INFINITI dealer in Tacoma paid anyone 200.00 just for returning their expired lease car to their location. I called to make an appointment and verify the 200.00 deal. My check was ready when I arrived. All I had to do was sign an odometer statement. THAT’S IT. To me $200 is definitely worth driving from Issaquah to just drop off my car. They did purchase my car back so I have a chance for even more $. WHAT A NO BRAINER! Recommend for sure!
I called and set up a time to return my car. I signed a few things; they handed me $200.00 and gave me a ride back home to Redmond! Then a few weeks later they sent me another $1285.00 after they sold my old car. UNBELIEVABLE!! A total of $1485.00 and all I had to do was return my car to their location. Plus Steve, Joe and Joshua were great. Thanks again.
Think there is a catch? There isn’t one. It was exactly as advertised! $200 for just taking my expired lease car to their location. They even drove me back to Woodinville and three weeks later another $1300 came from the sale of my old car. Unbelievable!
I have bought and leased many vehicles in my lifetime, but I have NEVER had a car dealer give me any $ for just dropping off my leased car (not to mention sharing the profit with me when they re-sold one of my cars). Simply put: by dropping off my car - which I had to do anyway - I got back 1700.00 + for dropping it off in Tacoma instead of my local INFINITI dealer. An absolute NO BRAINER.
They came to my house and handed me a 200.00 check. I signed a couple of things and picked up my car. Recommend.
Because we live in Seattle we called first to make sure that we would qualify for the 200.00. They assured us that all expired INFINITI leased cars qualified, regardless of where it was originally leased. They had a $200.00 check ready for us when we arrived. There were no high pressure sales tactics. They were more interested in buying our car then selling us another car - which, by the way, is the main reason that we leased our new INFINITI at their location. We have never been treated so well at a car dealership. Highly recommend.
Susan and Robert F.
I am probably one of the most skeptical people when it comes to any kind of giveaway promotion. So, when I heard the commercial on the radio, I was interested but a little cautious. I called first to verify that there weren’t any strings attached. They assured me that there was not, so I made the trip from Issaquah. $200.00 was ready. I signed some paperwork and was out of there in less than 30 minutes. Could not have been easier. Recommend.
I called my local INFINITI dealer to see if they offered the same promotion. They said that I must be mistaken, and that they didn’t offer anything for expired lease. So I took it to the Tacoma INFINITI location and got the $$200.00, as well as another $980.00 a month or so later when they re-sold my old INFINITI. $1180.00 for merely dropping off my expired lease was definitely worth a couple of extra hours of my time.
