  • Hi Carman,

    Any numbers for September for the 2012 ES 350...I know the 2013 is out, but just checking to see if you know any numbers for the 2012.

    Thanks
  • Wesney,

    Can you share the dealer name and number. I am planning to buy 2012 or 2013 ES350 ..

    I test drove a 2013 ES350 yesterday and the salesman said there is no discount because he can't even keep the new cars long enough... May be in his dealership it is. But $2000 off new year model ES350 is a cool deal.

    Did you buy it? I'm not happy with the price I was quoted at the dealership and walked. What happened to the $8000 or even $10,000 discounts that people are getting on their ES and RX? I only got a measly $3000 off. I'll buy a different car for just that! I like Lexus, but if I have to pay $5000-8000 more than other people for the same car that's left over from previous sales, I'll buy some other brand that I also like.

    Can't imagine I would pay $33k for a 2010 when 2013 is not that much more. Even if I work for Lexus, and want to pay more for a Lexus, I still wouldn't pay that much.
  • Picked up our 2013 ES 350 with Ultra Luxury Pkg. Paid sticker. Went to two other dealers in the area (Metro NY) they were all charging the same thing. The only difference was trade-in value for our old car. Frankly, we were happy with the price. I think it will be hard to get a discount this soon after the car was released.

    You paid $36,900 for a 2012 Starfire Pearl E350 w/Nav, include tint, pinstripe and delivered to Houston. Was it from Sewell? Couldn't get the same deal in Houston. Would you share your salesman name? Thanks.
  • Hi, I am about to close on a deal similar to this.
    Did the 36900 include destination/ processing? Surely wasn't the OTD price, or was it?
    Thanks!
  • Went shopping for a 2012 ES , but left with a 2013. Despite a respectable (but hardly noteworthy) discount on the leftover ($3500), I decided on the redesigned model. I paid the $44k sticker but negotiated away the LOJACK dealer add-on. I figured the $3500 discount on the year old 2012 was negligible when you consider the fact that just driving off the dealer lot has the same depreciation impact on both cars--and I'd be leaving with the new and better looking 2013. It may have been rationalization, but I'm very happy with my choice.

    My Starfire Pearl is an attention-getter, especially with the redesigned front end. The car is fast, quiet, and loaded with many subtle electronic surprises. You have to be somewhat of a gadget geek (like myself) to comfortably dive into the Nav Package' extensive feature set. There are many user settings that can be personalized if you take the time and trouble to explore all of the screens. Heck, the manuals that came with the vehicle are 4" thick. Most people will throw their leatherette manual holder in the trunk--and forget it. I read the books and loved the little 'hidden' features that are sprinkled through out.

    I agree with others that the lack of a cell phone storage area is a gross oversight, especially considering the extent to which Lexus has integrated your cell phone into the car's electronics (voice activated calls, Bluetooth streaming of music and audio books, contact lists, iPhone Apps, etc.) This brings me to a potential issue for any buyer with an incompatible Bluetooth-equipped cell phone. My new iPhone connected quickly and flawlessly. My wife's year old LG was incompatible! I was shocked when I determined she needs a new phone if she wants to enjoy the ES's cell phone features. Not a big deal, but still a potential hiccup when you go to program your new car. Have Dealer make the connection and use the incompatibility as a small negotiating tactic. Lexus has a website (http://touch.lexus.com/lexus/mobilelink/) to check compatibility; however, you may find that your phone has 'not been tested.' So, in real terms this site's usefulness is questionable. Interestingly, I test drove a used 2009 ES that had no trouble connecting to my wife's LG. Something has changed on the Lexus-side that affects compatibility...not good!

    I'll update my Post as I get additional driving time in my new ES.

    $1k over invoice, plus additional $1k off for using Costco membership (Lux plus NAV) :)
  • Did you negotiate the deal first then get the costco disc.

  • What dealer I can get this kind deal. Can you please tell me what dealer did you buy from?
  • bought 2013 in starfire pearl Saturday. Lux pkg, HID, blind spot, 17' twin spoke, rear shade, nav, park assist, rain sensing wipers, wood/leather wheel, mat/net/locks/applique, spoiler, moldings. list $44,116 for $40,468 + $599 doc fee at Nalley Roswell

    All the 350's I saw there came with the Michelins instead of the Bridgestones. Super quiet tire.
  • Awesome deal! I got mine at Hennessey Gwinnett. ES 350 with Luxury - MSRP $43,628. Got it for $39,628 + 599 + TTL.

    that's a great deal. All the dealers in NoVA are stuck on MSRP. Did you use Costco or any buying service? any trade-in? What are the options on the car? Please let us know...I am actively in the market for this car. Thanks.
  • I'm in Orange County, CA; and looking to buy the ES 350 with Blind Spot Monitor w/Cross Traffic Alert, Intuitive Parking Assist, Pre-Colision System, Navigation Package, Lane Departure-Alert Warning, but I do not want to buy the up-graded sound system, power shades or the super glass roof. The dealer is telling me to get the Lane Departure Alert Warning I have to order the Ultra Luxury Package that comes with their best sound system etc. Anybody know otherwise? and what about some feed-back on price deals out here in Obama-land?

    Being quoted the following in NY:

    2013 ES300h, luxury and nav packages
    $46,300 MSRP
    $45,300 selling price
    27 month, 10k miles
    71% residual, .0017 MF, $700 bank fee
    Taxes (8.625%) and fee rolled into payment, only 1st month + DMV at delivery
    $682 per month

    I am told that the hybrids are not eligible for Lexus first month waiver, applicable to most other Lexus models.

    I know the only flexible item in this deal is the selling price. Is 1K under MSRP (2K over invoice) fair at this time?
  • Here is what i got from Pembroke Pine Lexus ( south Florida) 2013 ES 350 white with premium package.

    i was upside down on my 2009 ES 350 - owe 21700, Trade in 18000, CarMax print estimate for 19000.

    So, i trade my ES with upside down, no money down what so ever. Only first payment 500$

    Lease 36 month /10000 miles per year
    Package 39400 ( pretty much everything except GPS.. who would want that crap anyway this days.

    $500 per month ( including taxes)

    At closing all i paid was first payment $500 since i had to pay for my old lexus 560 anyway.

    36 month, $500 per month and they took my upside down 2700 ES350 and 0 down ( no fees, no delivery charge , nothing)

    I don't know how much dealer made on this but i think i got a good deal.
    I talked to 5 dealers station and this was the best i could get.

    I got the price over the phone before going to the dealer. The only thing to negotiate was what I would get for my trade

    Am I reading this right? You just paid $3,400 off sticker for a 2013 ES350? By my estimate that about $400 below invoice.
  • For 2013 ES350: I am getting one at invoice in Greater Boston (too many options to mention). Is this what people are getting?
  • Which dealership in Boston are you getting the invoice pricing from. Thanks for the info.
  • Looking for a good price on a '13 in L.I. It seems that true car, etc are now much closer to retail than they were in the past !How did you find the invoice price?
  • Hi, I am looking to purchase a 2013 ES350, Starfire Pearl, Black Nuluxe Espresso Bird's Eye Maple Interior, with Premium Package, and Spoiler. MSRP = $39,859.00. I live in the State of Delaware. I am looking for the best possible price. Does anyone have any ideas about the best possible price? Thank You
  • I am from DE. I found the best possible deal, after weeks of negotiating, in PA.
    If you want, email me and I will share my experience and recommendations with you. My mail is todds911 at yahoo dot com.
  • Thanks Todd for the information!
  • I bought an Infiniti M37x in the end of August. I liked the car but the gas mileage was awful and I drive a lot. I knew this going in but thought I could stomach it. I couldnt.

    Went into Lawrence Lexus and made the following deal. Traded in Infiniti M which I paid 45k for and used for 4.5 months for ESH loaded up with sticker 46300. I paid 3k plus tax and doc fee for an out the door prices of 3480 dollars. I think that I did not get hurt to bad on this one as the ESH could not have been had in August or September for anything but MSRP. Would have cost more than the M which had huge discounts.

    Easy deal I drove car and then negotiated over email.

    MSRP $44,427. Paid $40,427 in mid-December, and also was able to obtain Lexus all-weather mats (worth ca. $100) free of cost. That is, the negotiated price was ca. $4100 below the MSRP, translating to a discount of approx. 9.4%.
