    I have negotiated prices by email:
    2008 without navigation about 37,000 out the door (~14k miles)
    2008 with navigation about 38,500 out the door (~11k miles)
    2009 without navigation about 39,500 out the door

    Any thoughts on whether navigation or 2009 are worth the extra dollars? They are otherwise identical.

    Much appreciated!

    I just bought a RX350 AWD 2009
    with Nav, premium package and etc.
    Base: $3,9100.00 + option: $6,221.00
    Destination: $765.00
    Total: $46086.00 (sticker price)
    Paid: $40,800.00 (including the destination)
    Cash, no finance, no trade-in

    The dealer told me the one with a base price
    $38,900 is one sitting in the lot for
    about 3 months and the one I got is the one
    just shipped in fresh. I am not sure this
    is true.

    I sent out the request for the quotation (I think on June 23)
    to 5 different dealers through all car-related
    web-sites and negotiated the price by phone and e-mail.
    I cut the price down and made the total price
    $40,800.00 with 2 dealers.
    My local dealer made me a firm offer price (out the door)
    ~$43,400.00 so, I walked and drove about 50 mins
    to a different dealer.
    After tax (Delaware) and all other fees,
    I paid $42,261 (out the door).

    I don't like haggling much and the offer price
    did not seem to change much from dealer to dealer
    at some point, so I purchased mine on June 27 Friday.
    The very next day (Jun 28, sat) morning, one dealer made
    me an offer of $37,700.00. Even $3,000 cheaper than
    what I paid! (but, 2 hour driving distance from my place
    and they don't have the color I like.)

    Conclusion: I am not sure I paid a fair price for my
    vehicle but, I got the colors (ext/int) I like with
    over $5,000 off the sticker. I have no idea what
    the actual dealer invoice price is though.
    And as many people point out, at the end of each month,
    quarter, especially close to the end of June, it seems you can
    get a better deal.

    I bought a 2008 RX350 without navigation for 36,600 out the door in the DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia area. Other options included a 2008 with navigation (just over 40,000 out the door at 2 dealers) and 2009 with navigation for 43,300 out the door. Based on the prior email, maybe should have waited one more day for the 2009 with navigation ... but it is still better than I was hoping when I first started looking ... and the car is simply fantastic. Good luck to anyone making a deal today. This forum was very helpful to me.

    I have been reading all the posts for the past day or so in this forum, but I must admit I am still a bit confused. I am looking to buy on 08 or 09 RX350 AWD with the premium package + heated seats in the next day or so. However, I am still unclear what type of incentives are out there for dealers and how much over/under invoice I should be trying to negotiate for either an 08 or an 09. If anyone could help me out, I would truly appreciate it. Also, if anyone has found a good dealer in the OH/KY/IN/PA area, I would also be very appreciative of any recos. Many thanks.
  • Hi,

    I just purchased a new 2008 rx350 2wd. I negotiated down to $1028 under invoice. I purchased my car in S. Florida. The dealership had 3 2008's left with about the same options, including mine. I was at the dealership for 3 hours negotiating, but finally got a number that was good for me. I got the following options - Nav w/ Mark Levinson luxury value package, Rear entertainment(I didn't want this, but the car already had it and I used it as a bargaining tool), Graphite Finish Wheels, Heated seats w/ rain sensing wipers, Towing prep, cargo mat, and wheel locks. I basically let them know that I would take an 08 for the right price. I stated that the 09's have been out for a while and the new redesign was coming next year, so I would take an 08 for the right price. After being patient and saying no to several prices they gave me, I worked with the Finance Manager to get the monthly payment to where I was comfortable with it. And now I am a happy new owner of an rx350. Good luck in your search. I wanted to contribute after reading the posts on here which helped me make my purchase.

    Many thanks -- I am currently using this as my negotiation benchmark. Not quite there yet, but I am getting close. :)

    Just closed the deal on my RX350 AWD in Truffle Mica with Navigation System, they added front window tinting and paid both destination charges from one dealership to the other. Lexus in Austin had to swap one of their vehicles with the OH location in order to get me the color and options I wanted.

    Paid cash $41,000-hope I did not pay too much. They originally wanted 45,199

    I am deciding between Acura MDX or Lexus RX350. I will be happy with either car, but want to buy one that is a better deal.

    I currently have a quote for $40,300.00 + Tag/Tax/Title. And $43,400.00 for Nav package. Does this seem low?

    Thank you in advance,

    :confuse:

    Grejay, Would it possible for you to email me or post the dealership who offered you $37,700? I'm in the New York/New Jersey area and am looking to purchase the 2009 RX350 with the Navigation package. The best price I'm getting here is $41k. Much obliged. Thank you.

    Hi Mikey777,

    You should contact Prestige Lexus in Ramsey NJ. I bought an '08 Rx350 with Navigation at Prestige for $38k + tax, title, etc. That was back in March when they had dealer incentives to sell '08 RX's as the '09's were arriving. (But I'm sure you can get a great deal on a 2009).

    Please email me at greatwicked@comcast.net and I can provide you the salesman's name. He was extremely nice, not pushy, and had an excellent demeanor. Prestige has an enormous inventory, just check out their website, they are one of the only dealers that shows their inventory online.

    Good Luck!
  • grejaygrejay Posts: 2
    Sure. The dealership is located in New Jersey and the name is
    Ray Catena Lexus. They told me they are one of three largest inventories
    in US and the largest in the east or something.
    However, as I mentioned in the prev. posting,
    I am not sure you can get a same deal now. A couple of days
    before I got that e-mail offer, I asked them for a $40,000 deal
    but, they turned it down. Maybe, you can try it near (very close to)
    the end of July, I guess? You can e-mail me at grandportage@hotmail.com
    for further question. Good luck!
  • Hi all. I have a 2005 Lexus RX 330 that i bought certified pre-owned in 2006. It isn't a Nav. It has 46,600 miles, is in good condition and has had no accidents. Looking around on the car valuation sights i see values of :

    Edmunds: 25,946 Private Party
    KBB: 23,605 Private Party
    Nada: 29,875 retail. 26,350 private party

    I live in the NYC metro/NJ shore area and put it in:
    Craigslist
    Large Newspaper,
    Autoshopper magazine
    My company's buy sell rent sight
    I am currently asking $25,500

    I haven't had a single bite. What am i doing wrong? How do i unload this car? Shoudl i bother with carmax? are there other services?
    I thought about trading in, but one dealer gave $22,000 and another gave $18,000 (2k less than KBB trade in. I was definitely insulted)

    What gives? What should i do?

    Hi,

    Can anyone post their Lexus buying experiences in WA areas? I have seen lots of amazing deals in the East coast but not in the West. I live in Seattle and most quotes getting so far are not so good. Thanks for replying!
  • mikey777mikey777 Posts: 9
    bebegirl, having had your truffle mica rx350 for couple of weeks now, what do you think about the color? are you glad you got it? did you have any reservations about the color? wondering if we should pull the trigger on the truffle mica or go with the obsidian black. thanks!

    Swotavator,
    Today must be your day! My wife is looking for a 2005 or 2006 RX330.
    Our dealer will let us test drive over the week-end.
    What color? New tires? I guess we can live without nav.
    Problem is, I live in the Cleveland area, my dealer is Metro Lexus and they treat us very well - being this would be our 3rd Lexus.
    Can you send a picture?
