    Hello Chris,
    I checked my emails and I guess that price was arrived at during a phone conversation. Anyways, the dealership was Lexus of Englewood, NJ.
    The sales team was straight forward, very aggressive to close the deal and great customer service, they get back to you almost immediately.Geez I sound like their ad now lol, so I'm going to stop now :)

    They do offer competitive pricing, but I suggest that you have a quote from some other dealership first or a few of them so that you can get that price and month end helps :)

    Good Luck.

    Not sure if you tried at Prestige Lexus. I got mine for $1500 less than invoice from them. On top of it got an additional $1000 off as a rebate for financing through Lexus. Don't know if this offer still exists.

    Tri County Lexus also offered me $1800 less than invoice but I went with Prestige because they have the car readily available with Michelin tires which I was particular about. Contact Brian there.

    I contacted Lexus of Englewood also but they were not ready to commit to a price on the phone unless I put some credit authorization with them. I guess some of dealers do that to weed out non-serious buyers.

    Thank you so much, 911seeker. I'll definitely keep it in mind. I wasn't planning to buy at this time, but we'll see.

    I did want the remote starter, which was in all the cars when I bought this one.

    Really appreciate the information

    Take care

    Anyone have any experience with this dealer add-on product for a new RX 350?

    - if anyone has any positive/negative feelings that has purchased the protection, and
    - prices paid or prices offered

    Midwest dealer offered ~$1000 for 7-year but quickly lowered to $645 for 7-year.

    Would love to hear any lower prices paid.

    Any feedback greatly appreciated!

    After dealing with the less than thrilling experience of a KIA Optima hybrid--- we finally made the correct purchase of a Lexus RX 350. Loved the car from the git-go. Great seats---comfortable as ever possible. Great styling and the ride is nothing short of tremendously smooth and quiet. New deep red with saddle leather. All the goodies except Nav. Have that on my phone and IPad. After checking everything out---the bottom line for a lease on this vehicle"probably all leases" is go with the factory backed lease. Great monthly payment---only because of $1500 dollars off down money and in our case $427.00--our monthly-deducted first monthly payment. $1925 off of-total down. Best deal possible. You can possibly do better than that-- but it would be far and few if possible at all. Go with the factory lease. Then work out your trade in. That's where you can make or break your deal. Get Kelly Blue Book fair value price and your headed to home in your new ride. Let me add one thing--- that KIA was the hardest car I ever owned to get rid of. Dealers turned their noses up and came right out and said they don't want :blush: the car. No resale-- because of low lease prices on new models.mmine was a fully loaded 2011 optima hybrid with everything and 16,500 miles. Mint condition. Silver over black leather. No one wanted it. Finally the Lexus dealer gave me Kelly Blue Top price. Happy camper you bet. Got that KIA Albatross off my back and driving a stunning Lexus RX350. Life is good.
  • What is a good price for a Lexus RX 350 in the Plano/Dallas area? Looking for RX 350 FWD with premium and navigation packages. The Park Place Lexus dealer quoted me

    The msrp on the Premium model is $47,030; your discounted price is $43,352

    The msrp on the Navigation model is $49,645; your discounted price is $45,767

    Thanks

    You should be able to get at least 12% off MSRP especially if you make the deal on the last couple days of the month.

    No problem. Give him your number and be firm.
    Good luck.

    Hello CarMan and Kyfdx,

    I have been quoted the following figures in separate e-mail threads for a lease:
    RX 350 AWD w/o Navi
    MSRP: $47,160
    SELL Price: $46,160 - $1,500 rebate = $44,660
    Money Factor .0004
    Residual $27,352
    36 months, 10,000 miles
    Total due at signing: $1,000
    $540 / month based on their math.

    I'm pretty sure the invoice for this combo is $44,019.
    Is it fair for me to go back and negotiate for 12% off MSRP to get $41,500.80
    AND get a money factor of .0004
    AND just pay $1,000 total due at signing?
    If so, my calculations using the edmunds lease calculator based on $41,500.80 is $445.75 / mo. including interest and MI 6% tax.

    My second question, if I wanted to buy the vehicle at the end of the lease, will I end up paying full MSRP by the time everything is all paid off? Is there a way to make a lease into a buy still a good deal by negotiating any differently at the beginning / before signing the lease?

    I am not sure what the MF and RV for your terms, but yes definitely try for Invoice minus 1500 as selling price.

    There are dealerships in Northeast offering that selling price for leases. I have been in negotiations for the last week or so.
  • s24ws24w Posts: 19
    I am not sure how they calculated / arrived at their monthly payment, but in a different e-mail I was given .0004 for the money factor, so I took that number and ran with it when calculating my payment. Their residual value is 58%, so that is what I used. Not sure if that should be modified.

    I have been trying hard to get dealers to give me a competitive quote on a RX350 AWD - my two local dealerships gave me almost no discount (2-3% off MSRP) and I have been expanding my search within a 300 mile radius.

    I email the internet sales department and ask for their best price but some don't respond, others will commonly say the configuration I have is unavailable and try to upsell me on other things.

    Then it's just crazy quotes like telling me they will beat my current best local offer by $200 when they know I am driving 6 hours to get there.

    I wish I was back in California where competition actually existed.

    Can someone give me some pointers?

    Same here. Just $1000 less than MSRP. I live in Minnesota.
  • sridharssridhars Posts: 25
    Find out from Northeast dealerships if they can ship the vehicle to you (Wesport, CT - best price I've seen - 1500 below Inv)

    Tips.

    You never ask the sales rep for a quote. Do your research, as I've explained on this forum, and then you control the conversation, by giving them your price.

    Insist on never paying documentation fees.

    Don't believe anything a sales rep says. This is key.

    Buy on the last couple days of the month.

    Don't email their internet department, instead call on the phone. Give them your price for the specific model (with options) you want.

    Don't walk into dealership until they agree to your price on the phone. If they balk, call another rep or dealer.

    First off I understand the problem. We only have one Lexus dealer in Buffalo. Next dealer being in Rochester. But let me add--- I just picked up my RX350 last Monday night. Factory lease term's and all incentives included. That added up to $2000 in savings. This is on a lease for 27 months. I added 12000 miles per year rather than 10000. So what was left to pay out of pocket was mostly fee's and $1,300 down money. My monthly is $427.00. For this beautiful all wheel drive loaded--except Nav."did not want" auto I feel I did really well. :shades: :)

    I'm also in the Buffalo - Niagara region and on my second RX350. Both were purchased from the Rochester dealer although the Buffalo store is about 15 minutes from home. Unless things have changed radically, the Buffalo sales folks have a very cavalier attitude although the service department is most satisfactory. Although Rochester is about 75 miles distant, they welcome sales that they would not otherwise have made and it is well worth the drive to save several thousand dollars. My 2¢.

    Pete :)
