  • My thought exactly, I bought a Garmin which has maps of Europe as well for 1/4 of the price, and I use it everytime I travel to Europe. I never understood buying the factory installed GPS. Specially with the rapid adavncement in that field. The GPS that comes with your car would be outdated and obsolete in a year or two

    The Lexus in-dash GPS with back-up camera is superior to the portable units in IMHO and I've used both. The built-in screen is larger as well as theft-proof and the back-up camera is superb. I do agree that it is highly over-priced however.

  • Hello,

    I am looking to purchase this car in Norcal. Who did you buy it from and what were your terms?

    Thanks!

    Hi All,

    I'll be going in to negotiate at Lexus of Bellevue this saturday. What price should I aim for and any hints and pointers for me? I'm going for RX350 w/ premium package, r/v camera, wood trim, heated seats and tow, MSRP is around 43,300!

    Anyone looking for one of these in my area? Let me know too.

    Thanks!!

    I got mine at dealer invoice (they showed me the actual invoice) from Lexus of Serramonte (SF). That's the price you should ask for. You can't go wrong at invoice regardless of which car and option.

    Which province you are in? I'm in Toronto. I'm also negotiating to lease a new 2010 RX350 with Premier Package 2. Two dealers in Toronto both offered only $2300- discount. I can deposit $4500- to buy down the lease rate to 2.1% (refund at end of lease). Zero downpayment, monthly will be C$721- plus taxes (come to C$814-) for 48 months.

    For leasing car, my opinion is zero downpayment is better. We should focus on the discount that they can offer. Interest is always the same for every one and non negotiatabel. Did your dealer told you what discount you can have?? In USA, they all talking about US$4000- discount. But here is only C$2300-.
  • Hi Deereguy,

    I am planning to buy a RX350 in Raleigh area and would appreciate if you could send me the price you paid and also the name of the salesman/dealership you bought your SUV from.

    My email sas.naren @ gmail.com

    Thanks.

  • I would say don't bother. Bellevue/Fife Lexus dealers are the same and they are not willing to negotiate and are very arrogant. They charge MSRP and won't budge. At best you might get a price that is few hundred below MSRP.

    If you really want to save money and get a good deal, just contact California dealers (Bay Area and LA). It is easier than you might think and you can get all the paperwork done remotely. Most of them are willing to sell you at Invoice price and shipping is easy too. Either they will arrange for one (they will charge you) or you can easily arrange one yourself for $500-$600. Also, you can have the registration done in WA and pay taxes here itself.

    You are going to save about $2000 to $3000 even after having the vechile shipped to Washington depending on the options selected for your RX.

    A word of caution: First check with the dealer if they have the vechicle with all the options you want in stock and ONLY deal with them if they do. Otherwise they could waste your time.

    Not excellent deal by any means and I know that, but I didn't want to hassle with out of state. I feel I could've pushed a lot harder, hope new buyers gets a better deal :)

    I received a 3 day "Private Offering" via email from a Phoenix, AZ area Lexus dealer. The offer was to "make your very best deal on any new Lexus and then present this invitation for an additional $2500 off"

    Well, I went to the dealer and negotiated a price of $400 over invoice with a salesman. Then I presented the coupon. He called over his manager and they refused to honor the offer minus $2500.

    I am disgusted at this treatment, especially after driving a hour to take advantage of this offer.

    Thoughts or suggestions?

    ..did you read the small print?.....there must something there that gives them a way out...the old adage..."if it sounds to good to be true...it is"...come on.....do you think that after getting $400 over invoice you were going to get an additional $2500 off?....
    Good luck to you....
  • Yes, see my earlier post. Got it in one of NJ dealerships end of september.
    2010 RX350 AWD w/Navi, Comfort pkg. MSRP $47,407.
    Sales price was about $42,300, i.e. ~5k below MSRP.
    This is still slightly over Edmund's invoice, but that does not include advertisising fees etc. I am still not clear what the actual "dealer cost" is, but from what I can tell this was a pretty good price. Wonder if anyone did even better in this area?
  • Hello everyone on this board. I am in Roanoke, Va. Looking for a 2010 350RX with premium package, comfort package, navigation, tow, wood & leather and running daytime lights. Roanoke has 2 dealerships but are not a LEXUS Dealership. Theses dealerships carry 2010 350 RX but they receive their Lexus Cars from Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Kennersville, North Carolina. My better half says that the Roanoke dealerships will not budge from the MSRP and that I will not obtain a car at invoice or less than 3 thousands from MSRP. Everyone on this board seems to be obtaining an awesome deal. My question is can I negotiate a better price through the internet and a phone call to North Carolina Dealerships or do I need to travel to North Carolina to negotiate a deal with a Lexus Dealership? I don't want to pay full MSRP. Looking forward to everyone's comments and suggestions. Burgundy2 :confuse: :blush:
  • Deereguy,
    Hello!
    Did you negotiate your deal for your 2010 350 RX at the Lexus Dealership or Did you call direct at the dealership or negotiated by the internet to the Raleigh Lexus Dealership? I guess I don't want to drive 200 miles to negotiate. Looking forward to your reply.

    Burgundy2 :confuse: :surprise:
  • I've used this site's methodology to negotiate the purchase of four cars. I've gotten a few under invoice, though I haven't used the method on a Lexus.

    http://www.carbuyingtips.com/

    In essence, you get a throw away e-mail address from gmail/hotmail/live/etc. and use that for several of the online car buying services. Once you get the offers in hand, pit the dealers against each other and drill them down on price. It's much easier than wasting hours in the showroom.

    The other thing that I've noticed is the best deals I've gotten were at the end of the month--I suspect that's due to salesmen having monthly quotas or something, but it could be just a coincidence.

    Best of luck to you! I think I'll be joining in the search for a Lexus RX 350 soon.

    As far as I can tell, there is no fine print that gives them an out. In fact, there are INCLUSIONS on this offer that you don't normally see:
    - Can be combined with other offers
    - Can be used on any new or used vehicle in stock

    Yes, I realize that $400 over invoice PLUS an additional $2500 off would be a fantastic deal, but it's a deal that THEY offered. (By the way, it's actually $700 over invoice according to my recalculation.)

    The coupons specifically says to negotiate your best deal. I negotiated what many others have already: $700 over invoice--in fact others have negotiated much better (up to $800 below invoice). Then the coupon says to present the coupon for an ADDITIONAL $2500 off the best offer. They refused to honor this.

    I have sent a letter to the GM of the dealership. I'll see what he says.

    Final price $41,200.

    Was this OTD price?
  • Hi a5fung,

    I am in Seattle area too. Would you tell me where did you get your RX please? Seattle or Bellevue dealer for $41,200. I believe it was before tax and license, right?

    Thanks a million.

    Please let us know what the GM says. The dealership might say a manager never accepted the terms so it was not an agreed upon price, if in fact, it was a salesman that accepted the deal.
