  • I have the AWD. The Lexus is a much "softer, smooth" ride than the BMW x5. I guess it depends on what you are looking for. Plus with all the packages I didn't have to give up anything. Good luck with your decision.
  • I got the following in Massachusetts:

    AWD
    Premium Package
    Vented & Leather Seat
    Other common features (remote start, towing etc).
    no NAV or Entertainment

    MSRP: $45,200
    Purchase Price: $38,800

    feldy1999, I think it's very good deal. Can you please share the dealer information here or via my private message. Did you get the deal via email or visiting the shop? Thanks.

  • Do you have a Lexus to trade for the New Purchase?? Also, if I am reading your post correctly, you want to pay for a New Car $1000 less than what the dealer paid for it?

    Dealers don't pay the invoice price, search "Lexus dealer holdbacks".

  • Sorry if I wasn't clear enough. I do apologize. Also, this post got rather long....

    When I hear invoice, I thought that you were refering to the amount that the dealer pays to get the car. Holdback (HB) included. I try to keep things simple. So from your reply, I hope I am understanding you better. You are refering to NET.

    Ex. the Dealers MSRP is $43,000 invoice is $38000 And the Dealer needs to sell it at $38,470 to not be in the red. HB is $1200 so the NET is really $36,800. From there, you would be willing to pay either $1000 less than that figure $35,800, or $200 over the $36,800...$37000.

    I'm not here to defend Dealers, I don't own a dealership. Honestly, I just want to sell cars and get more units on the road regardless of the final price you negotiate. However, I do understand a dealers point of view. They buy a car from a manufacturer, then they spend more money to sell the car. There are taxes, employees, insurance, utilities, interest, legal, computer programs, etc. This adds to the "INVOICE" that, it seems, you havn't factored in (the RED figure above). In addition, if you keep the vehicle for lets say 5 years, take the profit from the example above and divide it by 60 months. Simple calculation...$200 /60 = $3.33 per month. If you keep it for ten years then were in the $ 1.17 range.

    Since I sell vehicles my POV is geared towards making money. However I'm not "raking it in". I actually have a second job to supliment this one. My suggestion is to stick to a fair profit. They are great cars. I can't wait to hear what you finally get.

    The awesome thing to remember is that if we all sell them for a bit over NET our backup plan maybe to sit before congress and ask for money from the public LOL
  • Wich dealership did you go to.
  • Feldy 1999

    I'm looking to buy a RX350 + Nav + Prem + Comfort package + remote start. I would appreciate any input on a reasonable good and great price.

  • Went to the Dealership yesterday. They are telling me that they are selling at sticker price because of lack of parts in Japan. Offered me two thousand below MSRP. Anyone else talk to the dealerships recently. I was prepared to negotiate at $7500 off msrp but they didn't seem to be interested at all.

    I went yesterday and tho I wasn't ready to deal they seemed very ready to. Hope to know more this week
  • Hi faceoff007, I sold an RX in Santa Fe and discounted a bit more than the 2000 of MSRP. There is a bit of a shortage but not terrible yet.
  • So price went up $3000 and Lexus will be adding 1.7 % to the price tag from next month.
  • I havn't heard about any price increases as of yet. Although 1.7% doesn't seem to bad looking at the big picture. Thats about $400 give or take.

    Finalized my deal today with $6500 off mrsp. I know it's not a great deal but I didn't have more time to shopping around.
