  • FleetRates was amazing, they were so helpful when I bought my GX a couple of months ago. Not only were they extremely helpful but I never once felt like I was getting the run-around. They put me in touch with the dealer with made me feel even better. Basically, I went through FleetRates but bought the car from Lexus of Glendale, a move which saved me a ton of money and a lot of hassle. I would not only highly recommend FleetRates but will be using them again myself the next time I need a car.

    My husband does like how my new 06 GX 470 drives and /or rides at all. I don't know if it is mainly because we were used to ride in the LX470 or what but he continues to complain how it is not smooth, you feel all the bumps, it feels like I'm going to fast when in fact I'm only doing 70 or maybe 75. I notice some difference in the ride but not so much that I feel the need to constantly complain about it. I do notice since I keep it in sport ride instead of comfort ride it tends to be smoother.

  • I paid $1,500 over Dealer Invoice for a 2007 GX470 at Lexus of Portland, Maine.
  • Hello everyone - what a great message board!

    My husband and I are considering purchasing a Lexus Certified GX 470 with Navigation, third seat option, Brand New Michelin tires and Factory rear DVD entertainment center in a navy blue color from a middle-Georgia dealer. Miles are 42,000. Asking price is $37,990. Any suggestions for starting place for negotiations? Many thanks, L.
  • All, I was quoted $2465 on a Platinum warranty (72/100000) for a new 2007 GX470 at the dealership. Is this a fair price? Since the manufacturer warranty will not expire for 4 yrs, will it cost me more to purchase this warranty later.
    Also, can I get your opinion on the other 3 services the dealer is pushing.
    LOJACK: $795 ($5000 guarantee and lifetime warranty)
    ROAD HAZARD: $449 (replace tires and wheels , upto 5 yrs coverage)
    DENT PROTECTION: $483 (door ding, upto 5 yrs coverage)

    Definitely shop around for the Platinum warranty. When I bought mine, the difference in price from all the Lexus dealers I wrote to was VERY significant. Also, you have until the you are nearly out of the mfg warranty to purchase a replacement. Other than rolling it into a loan, I cant think of a good reason to spend the money now. Lojoack should not cost more than $500. Road hazard (unless you plan to do a lot of off road) is a probably not necessary (IMHO). The Dent Protection sounds interesting. I'd be sure there is no deductible, though. I paid almost that to get the dings out of my wife's BMW.

  • Ready to buy.
    Visited 3 NJ dealers but none have Blizzard Pearl/Beige Int.
    Any one else looking for this color combo having difficulty?

  • Gents, is anybody aware the Lexus year end sales event forthcoming? when to start. Thanks
  • They call it the "December to Remember" event and it usually starts after Thanksgiving.
  • Thanks, bobs05coupe,

    I heard that "December to Remember" event only gives incentives to leasing and auto loan. Does it include incentive (cash back, market support to dealership) to benefit cash-paying customers?
  • If you visit NY and CT Lexus dealers. You may hear that they add LDA (Lexus dealer advertising), usually $500-600, to the invoice price, to benefit their side of negotiation. I wonder whether you have similar experience.

    Should you treat this as a dealer's gimmick to boost their profit? and ignore it during the negotiation.

    Thanks,
  • Going to purchase 07 GX and wanted opinions on the KDS and rear seat entertainment system. read that the GX is top heavy and would be worth the money for stability. Also read that the RSES is a 7" monitor at which point i would opt to buy after market for similar price with larger monitor. thoughts?
  • The RSES in the 2007 is 9". Can't comment on the KDSS as mine didn't come with it, however, I tried to get an 07 with KDSS and was told it wouldn't be available on the 07 for 3-4 months. This was in Southern CA.
  • i am in san diego and was being quoted about 53K out the door ( taxes, title, etc.) for 07 gx loaded excluding RSES and KDSS. any thoughts on this being a fair deal or do i have room to move?
  • In my opinion, that's an excellent deal. I got my 07 for $50k (around 54k w/tax, lic, etc...) Fully loaded with everything but KDSS.
  • my price is without the RSES. you are saying you got yours out the door for 54K with all but KDSS? is this southern california? also, have you driven with and without the KDSS and can you tell me if the vehicle is going to be used on freeway and city streets if the KDSS makes a difference? curious. i have heard conflicting opinions.
  • I'm sorry, I thought your quote was with KDSS and RSES. 53k is still OK. I purchased at Lexus of Valencia, CA.
