    fully loaded 2011 RX 350 AWD at $43k with comfort pkg, premium pkg, NAV pkg, intuitive park assist, tow prep pky, remote start, wood trim & leather knob & steering wheel, with cargo mat, net & wheel locks with MSRP $48860, bought at $43k with lexus $1000 rebate coupon or $44k without at reliable lexus (springfield,mo). The same deal was offered by dave mungenast lexus (st.louis) & matched by reliable lexus.

    What u say folks, good deal or could do better?. May be could have gotten a aggressive deal but feared would loose what we have.

    2) Anybody needs 2010 Rx 450H AWD, zero miles, fully loaded with MSRP of $55k is available for $45K at eskridge lexus at oklahoma. contact josh debolt. it is obsidian black with parchment interior, had a minor hail damage, fixed by dentless paint repair. Folks, forget about the hail, it is all fixed and will be a good deal. We choose to buy 2011 RX 350 since we live in a small city where we have no use for 450H. good luck
  • I am presently looking at basically the same vehicle and Mungenast is quoting about $2,000 above your price
  • mike,

    talk to alex grant at dave mungenast, he should be able to do that deal.

    There are 4 dealers in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, they are owned by 2 different groups (Sewell & Park Place). Anyone got ideas on the best pricing? MSRP $51,113, Invoice $46,119, Dealer Cost $45332. USAA shows $47,169, which seems high, given the deals in OKC and Florida. I'll drive 300 miles to be the best deal... Model is AWD, Satin Cashmere Metallic, Parchment Perforated Seats, Luxury, Comfort, Navigation, Heads Up, Trailer Prep.
  • Dlcole76054,

    pls see my original post.Basically if you get $5k off msrp, you did very well for 2011 which is what we got. Eskridge lexus has very good for 2010 RX 450H fully loaded.

    good luck
  • My wife is sure she has seen two different new RX350 with this color combination but the salesman claims that is not an available combination. Can anyone shed any light on this apparent contradiction or on how to order it?

    You'd have to list all of the options on the 2011 to see how the prices load up. I just picked up 2011 in Dallas and listed it in this forum.
  • Just got off the phone with Park Place Lexus in Grapevine, Tx. I got $4800 off MSRP and will probably take the deal. It was too close to the $5k strike price target I had mentally established. Sigh...the internet!!!

  • Can you tell me how did you get that price $42,473 and which leadership did you buy it from?
  • Can you tell me more about the deal that you've got? i.e. package? navigation, etc...
    Thank you
  • Is the $43K you paid out the door or is it excluding taxes and fees?

    Hi,
    I am also looking for 2010 AWD w/o navi.
    I assume you car has more than premium pkg, right? Could you elaborate more please?
    Could you tell me which dealer you had used?
    Most Lexus dealers in NJ I've dealt were very cocky.
    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    James
  • I just got a great deal! $42,925 plus tax and license and another $1,000 for cash incentive. I only drove it home and it's awesome!!!! Love the luxury - going to love the Navigation and the other bells and whistles. Has premium package, comfort package, navigation, 19" wheels....wow...can't wait to wake up and drive it tomorrow.

    The inventory in Boston area is building up. If you don't mind driving, you could get a good deal at Herb Chamber.
    Nobody wants to buy a Lexus anymore. Overpirce & under quality.
    Their quality & design suck.
    I own a GS which has too many recalls. They can't even fix the brake squealing noise.

    Looking for the 2008 RX350 w/ navi in the tri-state NY-NJ area. Found one that I thought with a good starting price posted on the dealer's website. I thought that it was a good starting price to negotiate. However, by the time I got to the dealer, they wanted $1800 more than the price that they posted with the lame excuses that those prices were subjected to change to include the internet advertising and another fee. WTF..... I asked them what's the lowest price that they could give me, that's when the sales guy brought the "big gun" out (the manager) and after much talk abt nothing... they told me that they could settle on the initial price that they posted on the internet. They told me that if I would have walked in to their dealership, their price would have been $5k more than the internet price.

    AM I BEING HAD? I feel like I am, but I'd prefer to think that I'm not.... (female in my early 30s, walking into the dealership by myself) My coworker got the similar vehicle (the same color, same option) from this dealership with 10k miles more than the one that I want for about $25k. 2008 RX350 AWD w/ Navi. So I'm hoping for around the ballpark...
    btw, this is the lexus dealership around the North NJ area. I was so pissed, I walked out and told them that if it weren't this RX350 there would be another one given that this is such a popular car. It's just a basic supply and demand... and for now, the supply for used car seems to exceed the demands. Nobody will buy a used RX350 if the new 2011 or 2010 is being given away, am I right?

    The ones that I'm looking at is the 2008 w/ Navi. Carfax doesn't show any records on the car passed the time when the car was delivered to the buyer. I've been asking for the service records and they've been holding back.... :mad: Does anybody know why carfax doesn't show anything?

    Any advises will be appreciated. If you guys can give me the "going rate" for the 2008 RX350 AWD w/ Navi. Does color drive prices up/down too?

    TIA :)
  • What options are on the car, you say with Navigation, but there are so many other options which really changes the cost of the car. How much more was he quoting you than your coworker, 10k miles is a lot. Lexus retains it's value very well still.
  • are you saying you have paid $41925 with cash or $42925 plus tax, pls clarify

    thx
  • Hi, thanks for replying to my post. Their internet quote vs my coworker's price is about 6k more (at $31k), but their "dealer price for walkins" is about 10k more ($36k). The car that I'm eying on the lot has 10k mileage less than the one that my coworker bought (15k vs 25k). I asked them to give me the options on the car (premium or premium plus or etc...) and the only answer that I got back from the sales rep was that "the car is fully loaded with the nav, there is no more options that could have been added". I know it was a total BS answer and continued to ask for service records, pre-certification check list, etc.

    There are 3 competing dealerships in the area: Prestige Lexus, Tri-county Lexus, Lexus of Englewood. I walked in 2 dealerships out of 3 by myself. One of them had the audacity to tell me "politely" to come back with my husband. I wish I could slap them silly right there and then....

    What bothers me most is that carfax doesn't show any records beyond the 25th mile (which is probably the time when the car was sold) and asking for a service record is like pulling teeth with them. If the car has been into accidents, there is no way for me to find out about it then?

    Thanks again for your help.
  • Totowa/James, I meant to post a separate message and reply to you but I think in the process, I've gotten all mixed up.
    Which dealers that you went to? Given by your nickname, it sounds like you live in the Totowa area which means that the first dealer that you went was probably Tri-county Lexus. I went there and the Prestige Lexus. I didn't go to Lexus of Englewood but went to Warnock Lexus (by Parsippany area). It seems that Warnock had the best prices for brand new lexus. And their sales people are more motivated than Prestige and Tri-county. Last I checked (few weeks back), their leftovers were 2010 w/o Navi.
    I have since changed my mind and decided to buy a used one....
  • We just signed a lease Sat on a 2011 RX350 with:

    * Navigation System
    * Comfort Package
    * Premium Package
    * 19" Aluminum Alloy Wheels w/All Season Tires
    * 12-Speaker Premium Audio System
    * Intuitive Parking Assist
    * Towing Prep Package
    * Wood and Leather-trimmed Steering Wheel and Shift Knob
    * Cross Bars
    * Accessory Package

    MSRP $48,004
    Selling Price $43,289 (a bit above invoice; however a little below our calculated Edmunds $44,849 TMV)
    36mth/12k miles yr lease
    Lease fees $700 (I knew it would be there so negotiated it out with lower selling price)
    59% Res, .0017 M/F
    $0.00 out the door
    Monthly Payment (with FL 7% tx) $597.19 ($13.10 more than our 2008 RX350 lease that was turned in with only 25k miles on it) .

    Not the best deal I've ever done; however we wanted a white RX350, and they were moving them fast.

    The dealers Finance Director showed me Lexus Dec Lease rates when I said to everyone that I've read DTR (Dec 2 remember) rate of .00155 was being quoted on the web. I guess the .00155 M/F was a special in some areas.
  • Thats about the $5k off MSRP that several have reported. Lexus is pretty consistent, aren't they? I got a 3.9% for 60months through Lexus Finance. Strange that certified pre-owned vehicles are going to 2.9% now...

    Make sure if you run through the other private banks loan section as well. Lexus does a APR match in case any other banks offer you a competitive APR quote. When I purchases mine 2 months back, I was offered no less than 4.35% and when Bank of America offered 2.9% based on my credit history, Lexus Financial matched it and offered a 2.89% for 60 months. Not sure if this is any different between Lease Vs Buying.

    Check out BOA website before negotiating with Lexus.

    for Lexus, BMW, Audi or Mercedes Benz, call any dealer franchise, preferable local dealer and ask them about Vehicle Service History apart from car fax. Based on the state, car fax will disclose some info but not all. However Vehicle service history should be able to tell more. I will not buy a luxury used vehicle with out service history and sale people have furnished that report when asked if sold by corresponding dealerships. If there is accident and has a police report, you get that from the station and then could get more info from corresponding insurance or a dealer who fixed it.However problem with lexus is that since the services are not covered, leased vehicles may be serviced outside the dealer ship. Good hunch and good luck should get good vehicles. Also most of them are under warranty anyway. My first choice is that will buy a vehicle that was bought and leased and sold at the same dealership.

    I just bought a 2011 RX350 AWD for $39,200 + doc fee + TTL. The MSRP was $44,450, the odd thing is the guy didn't want to go lower on a car with a different option like Navigation, he wanted to add all extras on at MSRP. I could have probably found another dealership, but I didn't think Navigation was a big deal anyway.

    They also matched my bank's financing rate.

    it is not odd at all.. Car price are driven by supply and demand.. In some area a particular option may be very popular (e.g. AWD in NE) and dealer can charge a much higher price that the car without the same option.. Hence the price difference...

    We decided to go with the BMW instead. The Lexus salesperson came back to us after stalling us for 3 days with "Sorry, the car has been sold. Perhaps I may interest you with another car?" AS IF!!! I laughed so hard because this was expected. They didn't want to show the car service record from the get go although like you said, it's just a matter of calling the service department and providing the VIN.
    The only Lexus dealership in North Jersey that has been descent to us (compares to the others in the area) is Warnock Lexus in Parsippany/Whippany area. Straight to the point, no haggling type of BS. Avoid Prestige Lexus unless you can speak directly to the Sales Manager who was more descent than those reporting to him, and certainly avoid Tricounty Lexus at all cost. Aside from the fact of their jerking around, a friend of mine purchased 2 CPOs from tricounty lexus and it was a nightmare. The sales people put down that they would fix all the dents/scratches on the car upon delivery in the purchase contract. When my friend picked up the car, not only it wasn't preped .... The sales manager screamed the heck out of the sales person in front of my friend to the point that it was embarassing for all parties to be around. Why would an employer put their employees' dignity at a cross line in public, especially during a professional business transaction is certainly beyond me. This just goes to show the type of PROFESSIONALISM that this dealership shows.
    I hope that I've saved whomever reading this post some time and set his/her expectation over these North NJ Lexus dealerships.
  • Just got a killer deal on 2011 RX350 in the Bay Area. Coliseum Lexus. Ask for Internet Manager / Fleet Manager (initials J.S.). Tell him Eric sent you and he will take care of you.

    If you want us to call Eric, at least give us a sense of what the deal looks like? It almost sound like a mid-night TV commercial.. buy, buy, buy.. but no discussion of buying what?
  • 2011 RX350 4x2 with premium, comfort and navi. MSRP $47,500. Paid about $41,000 before tax and fees. I am Eric, ask for Internet/Fleet Manager with initials J.S.
  • My name is Joe Billotti and I am the General Manager of Prestige Lexus. I'm sorry to hear that your experience with us fell short of your expectations. Whether someone deals with a sales manager or a sales consultant, we'd like the experience to be consistent; polite, professional, informative and low-pressure. I regret that that was not the case for you, but I appreciate your feedback nonetheless.
