2013 and earlier Lexus RX 350 Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • 004004 Posts: 5
    I've been offered a deal for a 2012 RX350 with the premium package with these options - backup camera, heated seats, parking sensor, and 19 inch wheels. The drive off cost the dealer quoted me is 40,300. I'm not sure if I should negotiate any lower than this. The MSRP is around 45,000. Should I negotiate to say around 39,500? Or, would this be pushing too low? Any advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Tell me what the price this dealer had the car listed at when you first walked in the dealership ? Before any negotiating.

    when you say the drive off cost, does that include tax and tags.

    either way its a steal IMO. around 11% + off of MSRP, thats nothign to sneeze at.

    What state is the dealer in?

    is it a lease or a purchase?

    I just now booked the car on edmunds, and I get a rough $33500 RETAIL CPO with the 49000 miles on it.

    Or if it had average miles of 36000 miles, it would book for $35000.

    So those extra miles knocked it down $1500 at least.

    Again those are retail book prices i.e. high book that dealers use to start off with.

    Now that I booked it out...go for another $1000 off with your check book out, not $500 more off.

    The unknown here with your dealer is he may think he can sell it to some one else for his price no matter what the miles on it. Maybe so.

    If you drive a lot, consider how many miles you will have on it in three years , or if 100, 000 miles comes first. Then it will be hard to sell or trade with 100,000 miles on it. That scares people, even though the car may be good for another 100,000, even without a warranty.

    Lots of variables as you can see, and each of us have different situations. Only you know what yours is. So, take another $1000 off his offer the other day.

    You'll then be buying the car right around $33000 plus TTL. ..And you want that particular one you say. Or, look around some more elsewhere or wait for more to come in. Keepin mind, more 2010, will be coming in if those folks buy the 2013 too.

    40,300 drive-out!!! That is a GREAT deal!!! I'm looking to buy this week end. I live just below Atlanta and the best deal that I found was 43.800 drive out on an RX350 with the same options. That was Hennessy.

    After you buy yours would you email me the name of the Dealership? I want the Cerulean blue.

  • Nebula Pearl Gray with light gray interior. AWD, Nav, plus other stuff. MSRP 50307. Negotiated a sale price of 44500. 36 months 15k miles/year. Had top tier credit and got MF of 0.00062. Residual is 56% for this lease. Then, applied a tax credit which lowered sales tax to around 1%. Nothing down, paid $600 out the door and will be paying $533/month.

    Decent deal?

    Would you share where you bought it ?
  • dgovdgov Posts: 3
    Sure would. I went through a broker named New Autos Inc. They negoiated the car from Lexus of Serramonte (Calif). Smoothest transaction I have been involved in. MSRP on the car was $47,075.

    Sure. Once I purchase it, I'll let you know the dealer name.

    I have been quoted PP/NAV/CP $47200 for 2013, there's still room for negotiation and the interest rates are high too. we are better off with outside banks.
  • Lexus doesn't do a lenders for members but they were able to take the sales tax down to 1% basically.
  • Yes, the interest rates for 2013 suck right now if you finance through LFS.

    what do you need to ask to get the sales tax down to this possible in TX?
