  • Hi - Do you mind giving the name of the dealer? Do you recall what's left in the dealer's inventory of remaining 2008 ES350? I've been looking at 2009 ES350 at local Bay Area dealers, but have not been getting much of a deal. Since 2008s seem to be the way to go, any information you can share about which dealers had the most inventory of 2008s left and which were the most willing to deal would be greatly appreciated! Actually, any information on your experiences with all the various dealers would be great. Thanks!
  • They have a few left. Jeff at Lexus of Concord. Tell him Gregg sent you! Good luck.
  • What about 407 including 6% tax with driveoffs being
    600 total?
  • sounds very good...of course, it depends on the equipment and term of lease.
  • premium plus package 39765 msrp 10000 miles 48 months
  • it really depends on how willing your regional dealers are to deal. I think you should be able to get a cap cost of at least 5k back of sticker. At that point, with the MF and residulas, you can back into a payment. Perhaps California has better deals due to more competition.
  • Hi, I got my for 34200 plus tax&fee. Premium pk, HID, DC, LM, GN, FS, WF, BE, HH, WU, WL. I got it from a dealer in Philadelphia area. Hope this help and good luck.
  • So Texas lexus dealer offers me 2009 350 es base price 34320 plus extras to sticker price of 41595 including dest fee. I added window tint and stripping bottom line of 42185. We negotiate price of 37937 plus ttl. I call dealer in Houston who quotes me exact same vehicle for 37000 plus ttl. Please comment.
  • Do you mind telling me which Lexus dealership you went to in Houston. I'm probably going to start my search next week for an es350. I had no idea that they were giving out deals on 09 ES 350s. Whats the stock like for 2008 ES 350s in the Houston area? Thanks.
  • sterling mccall in houston and actually was 2009 pebble beach listing for 42705 asking 37000 plus ttl. good luck
  • ..hope this will benefit some of you.

    Just Closed (bought NOT lease) for 3000 under Invoice (and pretty happy with the car, and the deal). Premium Package, non-nav, but with most other including Spare, Heated/ventilated seats, Wood trim, Rear airbags, (Bay Area CA).
    08's you should be able to get atleast 2500 under invoice, and 09's close to/just below Invoice.

    Lexus doesnt advertise about this for the ES, but if you ask any dealer they should be able to give you 2.9% financing upto 60months. (So ask)., and approx 5.5% for above 60 months.

    I used the Lexus coupon for 750 (from last Summer event)- as good as cash- they will apply to your down payment.
  • Hi Bluer0cks - which Bay Area dealer did you purchase the car from? Also, do you know if the financing special is good on the 2009 ES as well? Thanks!
  • Is there currently any dealer incentives for the 08 or 09 Lexus ES 350 I don't see any otherthan the finance deals and loyalty programs.

    How are people getting below or near invoice for these cars. I can't seem to find these incentives on the edmunds website.
  • Can you supply dealership name and sales person you talked to? My email address is bunnytubby@hotmail.com. Thanks.
  • Hello All,

    I plan to make an offer on a 09 ES 350 level III (premium plus w/Nav+Park Assist). I plan to offer just under invoice, 36K. Invoice is 36.5K. My target date to buy is the weekend after Christmas. I live near ATL, if anyone has recently purchased in the ATL area please let me know of your buying experience. I do know that Lexus' November sales were off by 30% from 07 and that they halted production at their plant in Japan for 3 days, not sure which model(s) they stopped production on.

    Knowledge and correct information is our best weapon to get the best deal. 3K under invoice is fantastic!!. Not sure if they will go that low in ATL on a car that has MSRP of $41.5k, that would amount to a 8K discount. Although nothing wrong with trying.

    If you look at the 08 Infiniti M-35 that car can be bought for 36K+TTL (MRSP is 48K) right now, but the M isn't selling. Selling a car that low hurts the resale value, probably something Lexus would rather not do. But these are unique times. Who knows??....Didn't mean to get long-winded. I'm excited!!, can't wait to have my ES with me...... :) . I'll keep group informed of my experience. Cheers!!
  • Bluer0cks, what year was the ES you recently bought? 09? Thanks
  • Sorry for being so redundant but can you supply me with the dealer name at Sterling Mccall as well. my email is mimsterzx7rr@yahoo.com
  • Lot of questions. I'll try and answer in 1 shot and cover as much as I can.
    - I got an 08. Not an 09. I did not see ANY difference between 08 and 09 models.(Like I said, even for an 09, you should be able to get close to or below Invoice). Dealers have ways of applying their bulk discounts, dealer incentives etc, that allow them to sell below invoice and still make a profit.

    The financing I mentioned in my previous post (2.9% for 60 mos, or 5.5% upwards to 60 mos) should be good on 09 cars as well. Just ask them and say you want it. Make that the condition for buying. They will work with the banks or credit unions or whoever to make it happen. (You will need to authorize them for a credit application- so be prepaed)(Good credit being the condition )

    Dont even talk about MSRP- who cares about that number now?
    I did about 6 months research and narrowed down. Used Consumer Reports, NADA, and Edmunds to get MSRP vs. actual dealer Invoice prices on each item.

    I think Edmunds.com says not to mention dealership names, and sales person names, but I am assuming "not to mention in a bad sense". Dont see why it's wrong to post a good posting- especially if it helps readers. So I'll submit this at the risk of the posting being deleted. :-)

    Putnam Lexus in San Mateo (Bay Area, CA)- Call and ask for a person called Ashwani Kumar. There are good and bad sales people at every single dealer ship. (Which is why you see good and bad ratings for the same dealership and wonder where to go- coz they all look the same). I must say that I never got a single round of BS from this guy in the 4 months I took to close the deal. (And I talked to almost every single dealership here) Negotiations were absolutely professional- and even a good experience. Not cheap haggling. My experience- Got a great car for a great price, and solid buying experience. (Make sure to check Invoice prices on Edmunds for your options, so you know what to ask for).
  • I purchased a 2009 ES 350 last Sat in the New England area. Here are what I paid and what I got:

    Manufacturer's suggested retail price: $37,710
    Manufacturer's invoice price: $33,227
    Dealer's invoice price: $34,567 ($33,227 + $825 del. + $515 advertising )

    The dealer installed the bodyside moldings free of charge. (I should have asked for window tint instead.)

    What I paid: $33,750 + tax + title + $289 (doc.)
  • That's not bad at all for a level II lexus. You got premium the plus package. I plan to make a serious effort to purchase next Friday. I'm going to offer 36K for a level III, premium plus +Nav+park assist. I may add a rear spoiler. MSRP is $41.5 Invoice is 36.5K. I'm hoping I can get it for 36k. You got a really great deal!!! Congratulations!!.....I know you're enjoying...Can't wait to get mine....I'll let you know how it goes.....
  • Just leased a new RX and learned that the dealer has way too much inventory and are willing to make a deal to clear it before the end of the year.

    I'd be happy to approach a local dealer with too much inventory and offer to take 2 cars off his inventory before the end of the month if he lowers the price on both by 50%.

    He mentioned that he has a few 08 ES and 08 GS that he'd like to get rid of.

    Anyone interested??

    I just got a new 2009 ES 350 days ago. Here is what I paid:

    Invoice: $33,480 = (32655 + 825)
    Dealer Invoice: $33,995 = (33,480 + 515)

    I paid $33,300 + TTL. I might be able to get it for 33.2 if I tried harder.
    The information on this board is very helpful for me. Thanks guys.
