  • Although I have recently purchased a 2006 GX470 in Orange County, California, I am still receiving Internet quotes from various dealers via their automated e-mail system. Long story short, just received an internet fleet quote from a So Cal dealer for a November sales event advertising all 2006 GX470's for a cost of FACTORY INVOICE.

    Which means that if I would have waited another month I would saved the $1300 (over factory invoice)I paid. OUCH!
  • FACTORY INVOICE? Can you name the dealer? What site did you use for your internet search? I'm in the market (most likely next month) and I understand from one dealer that they have their annual sales event in December, starting on the 5th. Sounds like your guy may be jumping the gun?
  • A national paper would like to hear from consumers who are back looking at SUVs with the drop in fuel prices. If you have a story to share about how you had put your search on hold, but are now looking at SUVs again, please respond to ctalati@edmunds.com with your daytime contact info., city/state of residence, and the make/model(s) that you are looking for no later than Wednesday, November 9, 2005

  • The dealer is Crown Lexus, Ontario CA. Here is a partial copy of the text:

    The Internet Department at Crown Lexus is proud to announce our?November Sales Event on all 2006 GX 470s.

    Through November 30, 2006, all GX 470s will be sold to our customers for a special Internet price of??FACTORY INVOICE!

    This computes to savings from $6,214 on the base model to $7,559 on the navigation/rear entertainment/sport package model.


    Basically for the internet search I just went to each dealers internet site and requested internet quotes. We are lucky that So Cal has so many Lexus dealers within the area we live (within an hour to 2 hours drive). There are probably at least 10 dealers in this greater So Cal region.

    Good Luck!
  • Thank you, that's great information!!!
  • Any idea if this is a national promotion or limited to So. Cal dealers or just this dealer? What a great deal on this vehicle!

    Thanks for this info. I contacted them ( I live in Minneapolis!!!) and even with the $ 950 shipping charge, what a deal. The dealer here is no where close to this price...
    Thanks Guys.

    This is with nav. and dvd .. Is it a good price????
  • Thats about $1700 over invoice, not a very good buy. Should be able to get under a $1000 in my opinion.

    WOW!! I would have never knew.. What is the invoice on this car?The dealer said they have no room to bargain at this price.. He also said he would throw in tint and car starter for 49,600.. What do you think and what advice can you give??
  • If you research Edmunds new car valve, the invoice price for a 06 GX with nav, res, 3rd row seats, spoiler, Preferred Accessory Package and Hitch Bracket Bracket is $47050. Add another $500 for TDA, thats Toyota's advertising fee. That comes to about $47500. The price you mentioned, $49200 is about $1700 over invoice. I am sure you can do better.
    The dealer's cost for the tint is worth about $200 for both windows and remote starter is worth about $300. Assuming if you really want either of those options.

    Good Luck
  • I just purchased a new 06 GX right off the boat with Nav/ML, 3rd row seat w/air, rear spoiler, preferred acc. pkg and the tow hitch bracket for $46,880. plus TT&L. They also threw in the Lexus all weather mats and the WeatherTech cargo liner. That was the best deal I could find in the entire Northeast.

    Folks
    The price I am getting is $ 49100 which includes EVERYTHING
    Rear ent, Sports package, spoiler,Nav, 3rd row ,towpackage everything...
    I am going for it
  • Did you buy it from Crown Lexus in Ontario, CA, or did you find another dealer that would meet their good prices?? You have a good deal, indeed--you're paying about $4,000 less than I paid exactly 30 days ago. I still have bad dreams about my deal!
  • Is it possible to buy a GX 470 without third row seats, in reality? I don't need them, and thus don't want to pay an extra $1300-2000 for them. My local dealer told me I'd have to special order, and they would charge me extra for that, so it would not be worth trying to get one without the third row seats. Anyone have other info on this? Thanks.
  • The third row seat on the GX is what is call a forced option, every GX has it but it is optional. What a rip off.
  • I recently purchased a '06 GX. It is fully loaded, including sport package. The MSRP was $57800. After a few weeks of negotiating the best I could get was $5000 off the sticker. I paid $52700.I also paid cash. Through my research, I thought this was a pretty good price. What do you think? Any feedback would be appreciated.
  • I'm not sure how you reached $57,800--I can't "build" a car on Edmunds or KBB that totals that much. But that's beside the point. I think you did really well. The best discount from MSRP I've read in this forum is around $7,000. Correspondents often forget to say whether they financed their car or paid cash. I have a theory that you get a better discount if you finance with Lexus. Also, people often don't say whether they traded in a car to the Lexus dealer. There can be trade-offs there too. But your $5,000 discount is great. You should be smiling!
  • I just received an email about a "December to Remember" sale event at Coliseum Lexus of Oakland, where they claim to be selling al GX 470's in stock for $1 over invoice. Are there any hidden fees/catches I should be on the lookout for?
    Seems TGTBT.
