    What are the details on this offer on '00 models?


    Could you offer such a deal on a '01 model for pickup at your dealership in October?

    I'd like to repeat egt's questions and add one of my own: Do you expect to be able to offer such a deal on a 2001 LX470 in January 2001?

    Whats new in the 2001 LX470?

    Shane indicated that conditions (e.g., cars on hand) fluctuate from day to day but that he is always interested in aggressively selling as many cars as possible. His response seemed both reasonable and encouraging to me: reasonable, because he obviously can't predict today what things will be like in January 2001; and encouraging, because he _is_ willing to negotiate (unlike some the situation at some dealers).

    The question from xplicitt has been partly answered in the previous LX470 topic. There someone said, "My dealer (who's a friend) swears there will be no substantive changes on the 2001, with the possible exception of side-impact airbags. I grilled him about more HP for 50-80 passing; nav system; etc., to no avail." Another correspondent reported, "The 2001 LX470 will receive a DVD-based GPS navigation system option." Feel free to make your own interpretation of these conflicting reports.

  • Hello All,
    Yes I know where in the hell have I been! Paying for my 470... Ha! Really I have been quite busy lately in fact after visiting Florida for the first time ever to get my 470 from Connie...Plug Plug Plug... I've been back twice for other business. Oh well enough babble! I here to say that a reader put a flame under my but because I promised a very very very small website regarding my trip to Fort Myers. Well it is d--- well not done but a work in progress forever. You may not scoff or ridicule because last time I checked I don't get payed to make nice pretty web sites! :) Please visit and let me know what you want to know or see on the site I'll do my best to accomodate you if possible. Gotta run for now... Oh yeah the site is

    I'll try to add better picutres soon!
    See Ya,

    I understand that previous lexus owners get $1,000 rebate from Toyota. Now that is good customer service.

    I'm going to be getting a 2001 vehicle when I trade my '99 Jeep GCL in. I'm considering an RX and LX. I want the next vehicle to have a navigational system. I'm also considering the Mercedes E wagon for better gas mileage which offers the Nav system. Any feedback on the '01 Lexus vehicles having the Nav system would be appreciated.

    The 01 470 will have a nav system. I am driving a 00 470 now and the ride is as good as the e wagon that I had. I drove the RX when I had the LX in for the 15,000. It is OK but a long way from a LX or the E wag.

    Are you sure about RX is a long way from LX or E-class wagon? From one day driving?
    We own both RX and LX. Extensive drive on both two years ownership on RX, and one year and 4 month on LX. 6 hr. driving to Lake Tahoe, and 6 hr. driving to Santa Barbara. I perfer RX most of the time. I don't mean LX is bad, but here is couple things that is lacking in LX.

    1. LX remote features aren't as good. In here CA, sometimes temp. goes up to 100 degree. RX remote allows you to lower all windows, but not LX. Also allow your to close up windows. RX's remote has at least 3 times the range compare to LX.

    2. With increasing gas price. I prefer RX's fuel economy.

    3. Parking space too small for LX around here. Mine has two dents on the door and the rear fender already.

    Regarding the ride, I feel both LX and RX are both good, but with different charastistics. LX's suspension is adjustable rides a bit firmer than RX. With the hardest setting it coners as well as RX. However, I wouldn't recommand anyone in the third role seats. You hurt your back after 30 minutes of ride. With soft setting, third role seats feel as comfortable as second role seats, but you suffer the cornering ability. I often keep the adjustment "bold dot" setting.
    My uncle owns a E320 4-matic 4 door sedan. I have to say RX300 really rides better than E320. And a bit quieter. Less pumpy on the road especially on uneven roads. My uncle was surprised on RX300's ride. He told me that he thought all SUVs ride like truck. Apparantly, both RX and LX shows him that SUV does not have to ride like a truck.
  • Does anyone know when the 2001 LX470 will be out?
  • Sounds more like you guys are doing the limbo!

    Hey everyone:

    I currently own a 2000 LX470 with 14000 miles on the odmoeter.

    Am looking into possibly selling it to purchase another vehicle due to family changes.

    The problem is I don't know how to price it! According to KBB and Edmunds, they only have pricing info on the 1999 model year.

    It is fully loaded from the manufacturer. Black with Ivory interior.

    Any suggestions? I purchased it new including CA tax / license for $62,000.

    Any suggestions? Should I go to the dealer and try to "negotiate?"

    Anyone interested??

    I'm making the final decision whether I'm going to own a Land Cruiser or a LX 470. If anyone could tell me how much I should pay over the invoice for a brand new 2000 Land Cruiser and LX 470, equipped with all the factory options, I'll be really appreciate it.

  • 694694 Posts: 4
    Hi! everybody,

    Is $58,400 a good deal for a brand new 2000 LX470 , which is $4,377 over the $54,023 at INVOICE, and $4,932 below the $63,332 at MSRP?

  • davidcookdavidcook Posts: 6
    Yes. I paid just under 58.2K last November, and from what I've seen this price is in line with what others have paid that venture over state lines for a LX.
  • dugdugdugdug Posts: 2
    It depends on where you are. CA has the best price. I also heard plenty of good deal from FL dealers. You should be able to get better deal in CA or FL.
  • scongroscongro Posts: 80
    Take it, without a doubt!


    I'd say about 54K, 55K. Remember, it has to beat the new sale prices, which as you see, was around 58K
  • mavamava Posts: 32

    Thanks for the feedback. For those of you who may be interested, please feel free to email me. I'm willing to do better than $54k.


  • Just added a picture of my new toy being pulled along behind my 470... Take a look at...

    Glad to see that you found a boat that suited you.

    The two white "vehicles" look good together in the photograph. (Just bear in mind that the front one has only very limited buoyancy!)

    Have fun!
