    Thanks for all of the information on this board. Here's the deal I got for a 2009 RX350 FWD with Nav, Premium Package, and Wheel Locks/Cargo Mat.

    MSRP: $44,026

    Price: $33,900 (before TTL)

    Dealer was very easy to deal with.

    Good luck to everyone still shopping around.
  • Hi, i need an advice plz. i live in NY. I got offered RX AWD with Nav. The MSRP according to the dealer is 46500. He is willing to give it to me for 37500 before any fees(Black on black which is what i want). I couldnt get it lower than this. Do you think this is a good deal? or should i ask him to throw in a couple extra things?
    Thanks
  • I too am looking for a 2009 RX AWD in NY. The dealers here are tough! I don't understand why they seem to quote higher and higher. They currently have a 5k manufacturer to dealer cash back deal. And the 2010's are due in March and at that point the 2009 are going to crash in price. Plus no one is buying! I am being bombarded everyday with phone calls and emails from dealers of cars that I was looking at before I settled on the RX350.

    I want an RX without Nav and the cheapest I got quoted was 33400 (also had no HID) which is almost what the guy paid for in SF for the RX350 with NAV! I know it may be considered quite silly but I've decided to hire a car concierge service. I'm so tired of dealing with car salespeople. I will let you know what price he is able to get for me. I should know by Tuesday.
  • yunya: that is a great price I think, may i know where did you get the deal?
  • jkny516: I want a rx350 without Nav too, the cheapest i got so far is 33,000 + tax and fees. I have a feeling that dealers have more rx350 with Nav in stock and that's why they are better value now. I am thinking: if the rx350 with nva is not that much more expensive, naybe i will just get one with it...
  • I purchased for $33,890 +TTL, not the cheapest in the country but the wife is happy. This was for the 2009 AWD RX premium plus no navi. MSRP is $43,591.

    This was one of the best prices in the Phila area and closest to my house, most dealerships could not beat it. A few said they could match it or beat it, but they would not talk price unless I came in. I went to one of those dealerships an hour away and they didn't come close and they told me I should go buy the car from my original dealership.

    I wanted her to wait, but she didn't want to take the chance with the color selection.
  • That's a FWD. You won't find any FWD in the northeast part of the country.
  • coolmom:One of the dealers I spoke to told me that, in the North East the RX350's predominantly fall into 2 packages. 1) Premium Package only which makes the MSRP $43591 and 2) Premium Package plus Nav which makes the MSRP $46241. I had a different dealer call the car I wanted the 43591.

    When I spoke to the dealers in my area, as soon as I said no to Nav they all said that there was almost none left. Most of the 2009 RX350's left over in the NE seem to have Nav preinstalled in addition to the Premium Package.

    I spoke to my car concierge service today and he indicated that if the price was low that I should consider getting a car with Nav but I told him that I didn't want it. Most of the people I know with Lexus Navigations find them to be unreliable and not very good at getting you from point A to point B. I would prefer buying a new Garmin and making sure that I don't get lost.

    Have you tried dealers out of state? Before I decided upon using a car concierge service I contemplated contacting Lexus dealers in more financially pressed states. Dealers in certain states such as Florida, Michigan and IL seem to be more flexible when it comes to price. (even on this forum!) Also I'm pretty sure that cost of delivery if they charge cannot be that much. My cousin shipped his car to Asia from NYC, it was only $1500. Which if you are able to get the deal like that person on this forum from SF who closed on a Premium plus Nav car for 33k makes it more than worth it to deliver from out of state. At least it would be if you were in an area like NY where the same car is going for 37K plus!!
  • Or coolmom perhaps you and I should both move to SF. I think both dcjh and yunya have gotten really awesome deals for their cars and are both located in SF? If I could get a non nav car for around the same price I would totally have bought already but its been pretty impossible.
  • I can't believe you guys want the FWD over the AWD?

    The deals in SF were for FWD. In the Northeast you should only be able to find AWD. If you plan on staying in the NE, your resale value will be hurt when you try to sell or trade a FWD RX in this part of the country.

    Also, in Philla area most of the RX avail are without Navi, the $43,591. Couple of the dealerships that had Navi, their Navis were all demos. I've only talked to two dealerships that had brand new Navi. One only had two vehicles in breakwater blue, the other had a few but told me his price was pretty high bc he knows he is the only dealership with a good selection.

    Same kind of deals were available for the AWD ($10K off MSRP), but I chose to get the FWD since there isn't much use for AWD around here.

    Dealer was Stevens Creek in San Jose.
  • From my local dealership when i asked about the ebay gift certificate:

    "It appears it can not. Lexus only accepts the certificate that has been pre-printed. They will only reimburse the dealer if the name matches the list from which they comprised. "
  • Carsdirect is having a sale to the end of jan on lexus RX my friend could get a quote for a FWD RX for 30,900.00.

    Try the LA zipcode 90045. should be the cheapest in California. may be you can price match.

    The pebble beach edition RX 350 AWD, Nav, Laser Cruise, Rear ent, Heated front and rear seats, peium leather seats and much more around 39 k.

    check it out
    and
    good luck

    Hi all,

    I just wanted to share my buying experience:

    After going back and forth w/ a bunch of dealers in NJ/NY (I live in NJ) I finally purchased the Rx 350 today in Pennsylvania - Wilkes-Barre Motorworld.

    2009, AWD, Silver ext, black int. premium plus package, Navigation . . . and XM satellite for . . . $36,100 before TTL.
    MSRP was $46,241 + the XM satellite. I'm definitely satisfied.

    They also gave me a great finance rate (beating my credit union at work) and took care of all the out of state registration, licensing, etc.

    I was fortunate that the dealer threw in the XM as an incentive to go with them. I was dealing w/ a couple NJ dealerships and received the run around. I called these guys in PA, and it went quite smoothly and stress-free. The salesman was great. Message me if you want his name.

    Thanks again to everyone for their help . . . especially yunya!

    Good luck all!
  • Thanks for the tips on this forum.

    Got the following as the best from among the 4 dealerships in the Denver area.

    New 2009 RX-350 AWD
    Premium Pkg + Heated Seats + Alloy Wheels + mat/tow-prep/wheel-lock
    No Navi

    Base + Options + Destination = $42,776 (as on Edmunds)
    Price paid (including Dealer handling) = $33,800 + TTL

    Kuni Lexus, Littleton, Colorado

    No pressure sales, price verbally quoted by phone was $33,900, it was honored plus an additional $100 discount for closing the sale today.
  • Sorry for the late reply. I was off line for the last couple of days, enjoying my new RX350 :) So far I am completely satsified, so are my wife and the kids.

    The dealer is Ira Lexus in Danvers MA.
  • Hello all, I would like to share with you the deal I got in SF bay area today.

    AWD, HH+FT+NV+PT+TO+C1+WL

    MSRP: $46,131

    Price: $35,621 (before TTL)

    Thank to the information I collect from the board, the negotiation process was very simple. As some mentioned before, one trick is to mention that you have an out of state offer and you ask them to match.

    Good luck!
