  • 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.

    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.

    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!

    I'd go to some local dealers with this offer to see if they can match it. In case they could, you'd save a trip to MA. Also, get the offer on paper, you don't want to go all the way to MA and found out that they cannot make the deal because it's a verbal offer. It also eliminates any misunderstanding - they might think you're qualified with the 1K rebate.

    I hate to break it to you, but I think I may be driving the only 2010 RX350 that has the premium and comfort package without the navigation in the country.
    Apparently, it was a fluke that this car came this way, but it was perfect for me because I don't need the nav, and I really wanted the rain-sensing wipers, which I had on my '07 RX350 that had just the premium package on that vehicle.

    The only downside to all of this is I don't get a back-up camera or a rear-view mirror camera because the car has the auto high-beams with the AFS xenon lights, and no park assist. The car also was the same color as my '07, so no new color for me this time. But I'm loving the xenon lights that turn. They're so cool when you first start the car too with the way they go up and down and settle on center. I also am enjoying the push button start with the smart access.
  • Where did you buy it from?
  • lcmikelcmike Posts: 3
    Getting ready to buy in Houston within the week. Anyone buy recently and what did you pay?
  • Will try for MSRP - $7500 (including loyalty rebate)? Sounds fair?

    I went to a dealer and tried to get a 2011 RX AWD with Prem, Nav, Comfort and remote start for under 41K. The dealer wouldn't show us the stickers, just asked us if we would do 'near invoice'. we took a hard stand to see what they would do. Now gotta try again with others in the areas. I thin MSRP is $48408, like the poster above I am trying for 7500 under MSRP.

    Anyone else have luck?
  • I got mine for $6030 under MSRP in Northern Virginia. Trust me when I say that was as low as they were willing to go! I did not get the loyalty rebate so if you can get $7000 below MSRP then I think you have a smoking deal!

    Don't need to get Nav in Dallas (don't need to get AWD either). Try zip code 75201. THe comfort+premium consolidates to one package and the sticker I think is about $44.5.
  • I bought my 2011 for 44K with Head up display, 12 speakers, etc. I think it's a really good price

    Hello... I configured the RX on Lexus.com. I'm confused about the packages. Essentially, there is a Package C, but I do not see a breakdown between Premium, Luxury, and Sports packages anywhere. Does Package C have all of them?

    I also added the Comfort Key access option, but I don't see the option for heads up display. Is this an option for the RX?

    Are there any options I'm missing? My MSRP is 48,427. The only major option I think I'm missing is the glass break sensor. This is for the FWD. Thanks.
