    Here's my thoughts, since you are asking for input :

    Is that $40, 800 out the door final price ? If it is, the car is roughly $37400 plus tax and lic. I think you can get more off and should. If not, it's(37400 plus) too high for a now, 3 year -old RX.

    With that equip, that price($37500) would be about what they are getting for a CPO 2011 in most areas.

    Rules here allow you to mention the dealer , please do ?

    Many folks are getting $5000 off MSRP and better, on new 2012's, in Calif, now that the 2013 is out. Read back some of the posts here.

    Keep us advised.

    No it was not out of the door final price. I called him again and he came down to 38500+Tax+ $50 fee.

    License fee is already paid by them for this year.

    How about this price with 2,300 knocked off and with all the features it has with low mileage.
  • Final price from dealer is 37500+tax+doc fee.

    I am not sure if i should go for it or look for 2012 which might be closer to 42000+tax+lic+doc fee on road with all features this car has.

    Hi all,

    I checked on a 2010 prior to buying my new 2012 RX, a dealer in Virginia wanted near 39,000, then went down to 37,000(before taxes, title, reg.).
    I checked carfax , and it had three wheel alignments in 20,000 miles, and had the radio replaced. It also was a corporate lease. Those vehicles go through some rough drivers. I felt that the new RX I bought with just 6 miles on it was worth the extra money.
    The 0.9 % financing didn't hurt either,although I believe the certified used vehicles also has 0.9%.
    I wouldn't buy it at 37,500.

    How about telling us the name of the dealer ?

    This was single owner, leased. Also, Car fax was clean with regular maintenance at required mileage (1000, 6000, 11000, 16000 and last one before CPO at 20092). It is local vehicle bought at Concord California and drove in Concord area. Dealer is in north bay.

    Yes, CPO is also qualified for 0.9% APR but for 48 months. I do qualify for it as my score is closer to very high end of the scale.

    How much new 2012 with similar configuration before tax, doc fee are?

    The regular maintenance that this car has received is a VERY good sign. I have no first hand experience on the used car pricing, but it's curious (maybe encouraging) that he's dropping the price very quickly and easily--$40.8 down to 37.5k ! Who knows what his bottom is? Maybe the 10-15% off msrp that people are getting on new '12's, also applies to used. I do know that there are a gazillion '10's on the market (check Make an offer of 15% off-($34.7) and maybe he'll come back with something 1/2 way between.
    My son-in-law, who is VERY good at this, offered 15% off msrp on a new '12 and ended at 13% off. I told him he was stretching it too far and he said, 'I've never been one not to stretch". Shows what I know.

    I received a quote from a dealer here in TX for a 2012 RX which is $ 41k +TTL for Moon Roof, 6-Disc, Back-up Camera, Bluetooth, Heated and Ventilated Seats, Parking Assist, Premium Package, Power Rear Door, Smart Key Access, Wood/Leather Shift Knob & Steering Wheel. I would appreciate any feedback and any purchasing experience. Thank you

    No Navigation? What's the MSRP?
    I got mine (see previous post for spec)
    No Nav, with everything u have + little extra for $37400+ttl. Then again I heard southern california gets better deals so not sure how much you can go for in TX.
    Good luck!

    I live in Texas and bought a brand new 2012 with all these options plus nav, parking assist for less than that from a California dealer. It was a pleasant experience and also got 0.9% apr for 60 months. If the local dealers would not budge, do not hesitate to shop out of state. This is my second out of state car purchase and it was a no brainier.
    good luck.

    Hi Sailakfan,
    Thank you so much for your prompt mail. Would you mind sharing the California dealer and city and how much you paid for your vehicle. Request you to please let me know the transport company and how much it cost you to transport
    Thank you very much!
  • schenkerschenker Posts: 3
    Hello cysd,
    Thank you for your prompt response. There is no navigation and msrp is $45,583.Thanks!
  • sailakfansailakfan Posts: 28
    No problem Schenker, I am not sure if they would still have a good selection left but would not hurt to call. Since I cannot post sales person info I can be reached at capturelinkatyahoodotcom. Matter of fact after I closed the deal the following Monday Lexus increased the incentive from $1000 to $2000 but I really could not tell how much of it was applied towards my purchase. BTW I found a shipping company that runs only between California and Texas nowhere else and nothing in between and I paid close to $800. Good luck

    When you buy in California and ship it out of you still pay taxes and title for California?

    11.5 % off sticker is not bad at all on a 2013. Are you eligible for customer loyalty money or similar incentives ? Make sure you check to see if any.

    I'd offer him 41500.00 MINUS any incentives if there are any. Split with him at 42000.00 if needed, again minus any incentives.

    Again it's a 2013, so I like the deal even at 42600.00. $6000+ off is a nice deal.

    Always do your negotiating by getting the discount off the new car price like you are doing..keeping in mind sales tax is on the selling price.
