    If you can wait then until after 2011 RX350 comes out. You *should* be able to find good deals for 2010 RX350.

    Good Luck..

    Hi,
    Use the Edmunds Auto Loan Calculator and it will give you the exact monthly payments.
    I think it is a good time to buy the car as the dealers are more eager to make the sale as 2011 models are ready to roll. If you can wait till Christmas You may be able to get a little better prices but then the selection would be very limited if You are stuck on a particular colour and options package.
    Start shopping around now and try to get the prices from the nearest dealerships You have access to.
    Thankyou and keep us posted about your progress.

    I just purchased your same exact car
    The price I'm getting is 42500.00
    on the msrp of 48259.
    Basically no dealers in ny will go under 43000
    in my opinon.
  • I got this price in MA
    42500

    end of the month
    push them.

    Hey everyone,

    I am looking into getting a new Lexus RX350 in MA, possibly going to dealers in Watertown, Sharon for Herb Chambers, and Danvers to check out the best pricing available. Just looking for any insight on what the invoice may be for an AWD with no nav; not really looking for particular options on the car other then black leather. I got an MSRP from one dealer of $44,724 for a few added bells and whistles. Am trying to get down more towards 36 low/high if at all possible...not sure if that is going to be a realistic price any time in the near future. Thanks for any input you may have!

    I think the BEST you could hope to get would be about 10% of msrp for a STRIPPED model.... that would probably be pushing it on a STRIPPED down model.

    For the car your are talking about (not stripped down) with an MSRP of 44,700 .... if you got it for 40,000 I think you would be doing real good.

    look about 2 posts up ... eastsider just got a about a 12% discount on a car with nice equipment.

    good luck

    Hi,

    I've just started looking for an rx350 and was wondering if anyone has had experience with costco auto buying program. Are their negotiated prices good? I am looking for a base FWD with as few options as possible. Also, any recommendations for dealers/salespeople in central NJ area?

    TIA.

    Looking for a RX 350 FWD with nav, comfort, and premium package. Seems like cars in the southeast with nav come pre-configured at an MSRP of $47,385. Problem is there are 4 dealers in the area, but they are owned by only 2 companies. I haven't been able to get quotes below the invoice of $42,772. I would think this late in the model year that we could get prices much below invoice, but it seems like dealers here are conceited about this car. Anybody having better luck?
  • rick9194rick9194 Posts: 50
    a sales price around 42,772 on an msrp of 47385 would be inline with what most people are reporting on the east coast.I listed a couple below that reported they have purchased. Many have reported the best offers they can get are on the high end of the deals mentioned below.

    rick in Va 43,700 on msrp 48,250
    eastside in NY/NJ 42,500 0n msrp 48,259
    dennis in MD 43,875 on msrp 48,259
    CT audi in FL 42,200 on msrp 47,644
    Adam NY/NJ 41,850 on msrp 48259

    Many on the west coast are reporting much better prices.

    Also keep in mind .... this is the internet .... it is possible some may overstate the deal they got. Many are frustrated trying to get the same deal, in the same area, as reported in the forum .... when several dealers let you walk, after making a similar offer as reported .... sorta makes you wonder.

    Good luck

    Looking for 2010 Lexus Rx 350 in Dallas, Austin, Houston area> Seen any great pricing? Any finance incentives?
  • gladiator99gladiator99 Posts: 104
    I am looking for a sweet deal in the Washington/Oregon area on either a 2010 or a 2011 RX. I live in Canada and these vehicles, some of which are made in Ontario Canada sell for at least $10,000. over US list pricing. I have been browsing on dealers internet pricing and most were 3-4 G's under MSRP. I was looking at a site called Fleetrates.com. They offer a $4100.00 discount on a MSRP of $47,385.
    This is on a FWD with:
    19" whls
    Park assist
    nav system
    wood and leather steering wheel and shift knob
    HID lights
    comfort pkg
    Prem. audio
    preffered acc. pkg
    prem. pkg.

    I think a guy could do better at some of the dealers.
    Keep up the great posts here.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    I am looking at two possibilities. One is FWD, with premium package, heated/ventilated seats and preferred accessories. MSRP around 41.7K, for 37.5K. The other is similar, but with AWD (MSRP around 44K), for 39K. This is in Central NJ. Are these reasonable quotes?

    Thanks.

    I need a little more info/details on the car. I'm assuming that is before tax+fees?

    Also where in CNJ as I am looking as well :)
  • funguy123funguy123 Posts: 92
    You are only asking for $5k off MSRP. based on what people have reported on the board here, you should be able to get that price. Every dealer is different, you must try and contact multiple dealers to get that price. Lexus dealers are known for their ... "we will tell you price when you are ready"... I hate those dealers. I simply go to next dealer.
  • sgb2003sgb2003 Posts: 44
    I have talked to half a dozen different dealers, and am in negotiations with 4 of them. Couple of them have agreed to these prices but the sticking point has been the doc fees. I want them to take that off or reduce the price correspondingly. I am this close right now and I think they will come down. I am in no hurry, so that helps.
  • funguy123funguy123 Posts: 92
    You are in a driver seat. don't give up, keep up the pressure, if they agreed on your price, I don't think they will lose your business just for the doc fees. Sounds like you are all set :) As for me, waiting for 2011 so that i can get a little better discount (hopefully).

    I could have shopped around more, but I'd rather spend time with my newborn instead of weekends at the dealers. I have to admit that this forum and people like you have revolutionized the buying experience.

    Location: Central NJ
    Equip: AWD, Prem, Comf, Accessory, NAV, Tow Prep, Wood Steer/Knob, Crossbars,
    MSRP: $47,844 (inc Dest)
    Sale: 42,300
    Est $900 below invoice

    They gave me 3.9% financing for 60 months but I will pay it off pretty quick. They also took my beatup 2001 RAV4 135000 miles for $3500. The car was in poor condition because it needed brakes, tires, and servicing. It also had a few dents.

    I could have gotten a better price on the RX going to more dealers...but sometimes time = money. This is my wifes new car and having her spend a day at the dealer is major step to begin with.

    The dealership was in Central NJ where demand is very high and negotiating is a little tough.

    I did have a few quick questions...I noticed that my MSRP had a charge for Crossbars?? I don't see many others post that....I think I see almost every RX come with them...am I wrong?

    Anyway, I'm happy this is over. The only other car we looked at was the SRX...nice car but was uncertain and didn't want to have regrets. I love the Smokey Granite Mica (Black Interior).

    Truffle Mica was also nice....but the color really varies between indoor and outdoor.
  • Looking at the RX350--MSRP 44,090--no nav. Best price I've been able to get in NJ and nearby NY area (White Plains) is $39900. That includes everyting but DMV fees and sales tax. Should I keep looking or is this as good as I'm going to get? I don't mind driving a ways to get a better deal.
