    Just purchased 2011 RX 350 AWD with premium, comf, and nav. I was able to get a price of exactly 40K . I've been reading the RX350 threads here for a while to see how much is everyone is paying. After 4 months of research I finally went to the dealer yesterday to test drive the car with no intention of buying one the same day. The MSRP was 49K. I had a 3K worth of trade in. When it finally came down to dealer's final offer they gave me exactly 37K including my trade. The dealer told me that the offer was for that time only so I did not hesitate took the offer. I was very happy with the deal compared on what everyone is paying on this thread.
  • Wow! Where did you buy it? So far, the best I could get w/o Nav is $39.5. And your price is amazing. Do you mind sharing the dealer info? You can email me at charlieliuchn@gmail.com if you feel more confortable that way.
    Thanks a lot.

    Does it include a remote starter? Anyway, a great price. Congratulations.
  • mjciphamjcipha Posts: 4
    Yes it includes remote starter, Mine did not come with a cross bars. This is the only thing I regret not asking the dealer to add. Oh well..

  • OK. I called Lexus of Watertown on Tuesday and the salesperson I talked gave me a price of $41,500 for the car. So I gave up on them. I bought my RX350 on Wednesday in Central NJ. It's AWB with Backup Camera, Premium Package, Towing Prep Package, Heated and Ventilated Front Seats, Wood-and-Leather-trimmed-Steering-Wheel-and-Shift-Knob. I got for 39.5K. I know it's not the best deal I can get because I got a couple of offers from other dealership for a couple of hundres dollars less. But overall, I am satisfied with the deal.

    Hi
    What is the MSRP of the car you've purchased?
    Would you please share the info of Sales Rep you've dealt?
    Was it include $1000 Loyalty Incentive?
  • The sticker on the car has a total of $44,820 (or $44,850?). It does not include the $1000 Loyalty Incentive. So with the incentive included, it'd be $38,500. I cannot post the Sales rep info. But if you send me an email, I'd glad to give you him info.
    Good Luck.
  • Hi everyone, I'm new to this thread, I'm buying a rx 350 with the luxury package tomorrow, the MSRP is at high 48000, but there's a sale price going on for high 46,000. About how low can I get the car for? And also, someone told me that they get free oil change at Toyota. Does Lexus offer that, if so, how do I go about doing that? Thank you very much
  • wcs1885wcs1885 Posts: 15
    You can definately get lower than $46k. That's what the dealer offered me, but I ended up w/ $43500 (premium, nav, comfort package). My $1000 car trade-in was included in that price (I had a really really old car).

    Regarding free oil changes. It depends on the dealership. Each one have their own services that they provide. For me, I get 2 free oil changes/maintenance checkups. After that, they give me (10) $25 coupon vouchers that I can use at their dealership if I bring my car in for whatever reason. Plus, if they take a long time to do whatever to your car if you bring it in, they give you a loaner car (free of charge) to drive while they work on yours. You can drop off yours & get a loaner. Or they can come to you to exchange. It's pretty nice.

    I've had mine for a month and absolutely love it.
  • Can anyone tell me feature/price difference between Luxury package vs premium+comfort+nav?
  • I called a dealer last week and the sales rep said he could do AWD with NAV, which usually goes with Premium and Comfort packages, for $41,500. I think it's a reasonable price.
    Good Luck.

    I can't believe what some of you are paying for this car. Maybe the location has something to do with it.

    I purchased a 2011 FWD, navigation, comfort package, and Premium package in Atlanta at the end of January. The car had 400 miles on it and I ended up buying it for $42,710. The out the door price was exactly $45,700 which included the 7% sales tax in Georgia. At the time I thought it was a pretty good price. However after following this forum even, after I bought the car, it appears that I didn't do so good after all.
  • How much should I pay for this configuration? I am eligible for loyalty discount as well.
  • I'd suggest you to go to Edmunds.com and get the invoice price for the configuration. $1,000 below the invoivce price (before the $1000 loyalty rebate) is a good price. So start negotiation with $1500 below invoice price. At the end, I'd say, with $1000 loyalty rebate, $2000 below invoice price is ok.

    I'm looking to get a 2011 AWD or FWD with Premium and Comfort packages. But it seems like to get the Comfort Package, I am forced to also get the Navigation. I was messing around on the Lexus website building different configurations. They make the user enter zip code for different package options (I thought it was for marketing purposes, but different zip codes really do produce different option variations). I put in all sorts of zip codes but it doesn't appear that I can get the Comfort without the Nav. I'd appreciate if anyone can comfirm if this is true or have seen the configuration that I'm looking for. Thanks!
  • It's true. The Comfort Package only comes with NAV. Originally, I want the Premium and Comfort packages only (because I want the Heated Seats and HID), all the dealers told me that I had to get the NAV if I really want the Comfort. Finally, I gave up on the Comfort, and get the Heated Seats alone without HID.
  • kkuetkkuet Posts: 28
    That is exactly why I wanted the Comfort...for the HID and Heated Seats. Looks like the heated seats come as a single option with the Premium but the HID does not. How are the halogen lights? I've had HID for 10 years now and I can't imagine not having them. Might just have to get the Nav...

  • I picked up my 2011 AWD RX350 last week. It has comfort, Nav, and premium, 12 speaker audio, tow prep, wood and leather trimmed steering wheel and knob, plus accy pky. The MSRP is $48385. I got $42350 plus taxes, tags and fees. I was out the door at just under $44200. I did not qualify for the incentive discounts but I could have received those on top of my price. I am thrilled with my car and the price.

    Thanks stargazer23,

    seems you have an additional "NAV" to what iam getting for an additional cost of ~4k.
  • That's the same configuration as mine. I got mine from a NJ local dealer last week. If the price is after the $1000 loyalty rebate, it's comparable with NJ dealers' quote. If it's not, it's a very good price. I'd say go for it.
    Good Luck.
  • rucshacarucshaca Posts: 8
    Thanks charlieliu.
    No the price $38389 do not include loyality rebate as iam not qualified for that rebate.

    Your deal is certainly a good one and I would go for it! But keep in mind, mine not only has the NAV but the comfort pkg as well. Most of the cars in my area are equipped with all three packages and you can't really just get individual options. Good luck with your purchase!

    For what it is worth, the NAV really puts this car over the top! I have had the car only a short time and I don't know how I ever lived without it! To anyone on the fence about getting NAV, you really should!
