    Did the dealer replace the brake pads for free? How many miles on your car? There is another posting here that indicates the factory pads only last 15,000 miles. I have heard the low dust pads last much longer. I have my 5,000 service next week, what do I need to say to get free replacement pads? I dont think complaining about the dust will work since they wash my car for free every week or two !!! Are you happy with the reduced stopping power? Thanks.
  • My car has only 200 miles.. Ive heard that they replace it for free anyways as there is an upgrade for lexus gs 350 ?. they just replaced for free and i did not ask for it as well.. I think i am happy with brade pads so far. earlier ones were better but the stop was rough.
  • Found a 2008 GS AWD demo at a local dealer - car has about 8,400 miles. The msrp is $53,000 including ML. Given that the car is no longer "new" I am trying to determine the value. Dealer wants $43,500...given that some of you have gotten deals in the $45,000 range, it seems to me that I should be able to get more of a discount. During the first round of negotiation they budged a few hundred dollars, but I think there's more. Anyone have any suggestions? Should I just wait until the 2009 models come out and see if there are better incentives on the real new / undriven 2008s? Any word on when the 2009s will hit the dealer lots?

    Thanks!
  • I'm looking at 07 GS 350 w/ premium package, Nav, 23k miles on it. it's a private sale and I got it down to $34k. Is this a good deal?
    Can somebody run carfax for me on this vehicle VIN JTHBE96S270008522 ??

    If it has nav and went in service around 8/07, then it's a great deal, depending on the body.
  • My opition is, spent about 200 dollars for a $750 Gift certificate for 2008/2009 lexus . I just brought one from ebay. I can use my extra 500 dollars for window tinted or some nice car wax... :)
  • Hey all,

    I'm located in southern california and i'm looking for a good deal on a new 08 or preowned 07 lexus gs 350 RWD. I wouldn't mind a 2007 GS 350 with not too many miles (less than 25k total miles). I found a few at longo lexus that they are listing for $39k but it doesn't have Mark Levinsion radio system. I would like to stay under $35k total (this includes tax) and get the ML system since I hear so much great things about it. Is that unreasonable to think that I can get a 07 model with ML at a dealership for under $35k? If so, what is a reasonable/good deal price?

    What would the going price be for the 08 model gs 350 be for a model with the ML system? Am i better off waiting for the 2009 models to come out and see if there is a dip in the prices for the 07 & 08 versions?

    Any and all responses and help would be greatly appreciated. :blush:
  • I've read a few posts suggesting folks bought these off eBay at $200 with a face value of $750 and that dealers accept these as a form of payment on your purchase or lease of a new 2008/9 Lexus. Does anyone know if these are truly legitimate and if any Lexus dealer as rejected these as a form of payment?

    thanks

    I have leased multiple cars from Keyes Lexus in Van Nuys. The latest one being a 2004 GX 470. The price I was given was fair and the car has performed perfectly. I shopped around for a long time before deciding on which dealership to work with. I decided on Keyes Lexus because they listened to what I wanted, what I could afford, and without any hassel or sales tricks I was able to get exactly what I wanted. They were terrific and I they will definitily be getting my repeat business.
  • I have just purchased and am awaiting delivery of my 2009 GS 350 AWD. It is loaded with everything (spoiler, ventilated seats, parking assist, rain sensing wipers, etc..........) except the ML audio package. Cost was $45,750 + Tax, Sticker was $51,549. Cash, no trade.

    I think I did OK because one dealer told me he wanted $47,500 plus the $2500 car I drove into the dealership with for a 2008 model. I found it odd that 2 dealers could be so far apart. I knew I was in trouble when I told the salesman that I wanted a GS and he told me I should buy an RX instead. He had only 6 GSs (in bad colors) and no 2009s.
  • Need help again. I found a nice preowned 2007 lexus gs 350 with just under 18k miles. Seems like the car has most of the options except the Mark Levinson stereo system (which I really want but I guess I can give up since its hard to find a pre-owned vehicle with all the stuff you are looking for including color of interior and exterior). The car is listed at 42k but I think this is grossly overpriced. I was thinking offering maybe something around $34k final offer (all in including tax). Is this an unreasonable number for me to suggest? Am I going to get laughed out of the dealership? I figured right now is a good time to get a good deal on cars but would like some helpful input. Thanks in advance.
  • Just leased a new RX and learned that the dealer has way too much inventory and are willing to make a deal to clear it before the end of the year.

    I'd be happy to approach a local dealer with too much inventory and offer to take 2 cars off his inventory before the end of the month if he lowers the price on both by 50%.

    He mentioned that he has a few 08 ES and 08 GS that he'd like to get rid of.

    Anyone interested??

    Can u please tell me which dealer this is? Looking at a 2008 GS350.

    Thanks.
  • Just paid the deposit on a (smokey granite, dark interior) 2009 GS350 w/o M/L. MSRP was 51,549, closed the deal at 45,700 plus tax and title. Probably not the lowest price, but wanted to close the deal this week end. Car is being transported from another dealer about 100 miles away and I was told that I should get the car Monday or Tuesday.
    This forum has been pretty useful in my research. Thanks everyone
  • I've recently come across a used 2007 Lexus GS350 with 14k miles for 34,500 at a JM Lexus Dealership. I'm clueless when it comes to used car pricing so I need some help in regards to an offer. The car doesn't have Navigation or the ML Surround, but I'm not interested in either so I'm fine. What should be my offer?
  • Just picked up a GS 350 (Sterling McCall in Houston) with base package (summer tires, sunshade, ventilated seats, sensing wipers, spoiler, accy package, leather/wood steering wheel) for 41K + TTL. This is a no NAV no M/L. Did I do ok?
  • chucko3chucko3 Posts: 793
    If it's an AWD, you got $8K below MSRP.
    You did great.

    Just posted my lease details for the GS 350 leasing board. To the extent that the sales terms are helpful to folks here, have cross posted some of the info. Sharing my own details below in the hopes that it can help someone else (though forgive me for any newbie errors in terminology / details)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Dealership in northern NJ. Brand new 2008 AWD GS 350 in Smoky Granite/Black equipped as follows:

    Basic navigation package (not fancy ML audio)
    Automatic sensing wipers and headlights
    Parking assist
    Ventilated seats
    Accessory pac
    Spoiler
    Leather and wood steering wheel

    $51,249 MSRP
    $43,918 Sale price / Capitalized cost

    My salesman was great and I'd recommend him to anyone. Manager was a d**k, but I guess thats his job. Happy to provide their names to anyone via private message

    Again, greatly appreciate this forum's assistance
  • I am looking at a 2008 GS350 loaded, (M/L, Nav, really everything it seems - even XM)
    It's at a local dealer. 15,000 miles on it. This is a managers car at this dealer.

    I took a 2009 home for an overnight trial and liked it - rides nice comfortable etc.

    Manager says you can have it for under 40K. After researching i'm thinking 38K would be a good price. Does this sound like a good deal or should I negotiate lower?

    Thanks for any feedback. It will help me in my decision.
  • Sounds pretty good, but you could probably score a new one for a few more grand I think. I'm in southern Calif and I just closed on 3 year lease on a loaded 08 be 350 rwd. Sticker was $52,500 or something close to that.

    I ended up with 3 yr lease
    $625monthly pymt plus tax
    First and DMV/reg fees upfront =$1500
    12,000 miles per year, but not an issue if you purchase at end of lease
    42% residual, roughly 21k

    The car was loaded with navi, park assistance and ML.

    I hope I got a good deal, you guys let me know.

    I was also told and shown that Lexus is cutting back costs/trimmings on base model gs by getting rid of wood finishing on steering wheel and automatic rear shade. The sales guy said he wasn't sure if there was anything else they were going cheap on to save on costs. That's part of the reason I went for the fully loaded.
  • Thanks Slamajam,

    I'm thinking I can do better too. It turns out it doesn't have ML but does have NAV. I figured when he said loaded it meant everything but apparently not.

    I am not the expert but your lease sounds like a great deal to me. I would go for something like that. Off to do more research/negotiating...

    looking at a GS 350 awd too

    by my calculations with the current rebate offer
    the dealer cost is around $40,915 not including MV, MZ,CS, P7, LS, Z1, LM, WL, GN
    not facturing floor fees from the factory and bonus for X cars sold or whatever

    the miles
    15,000*$0.15 (our lease is $0.18 per mile extra) = $2,250

    so i'd do
    invoice
    - 930 holdback
    - 5000 dealer cash
    - 2250 for the miles
    + invoice options
    = ? + ~3% profit = ? + $825 delivery fee

    on this config i get over $38k but somewhere in the $38k range is where'd shoot with this one

    maybe check kelley blue book and nadaguides to see what they think the car should fetch

    I presently have an Audi A6 but am looking at the GS 350 RWD. Any recent So FL lease experiences that anyone can share?

    thanks
  • I have been shopping for a new car and considering Audi A6 3.0T, Jaguar XF and Infiniti M45. I went into the Lexus dealership just for a comparison, and I was very impressed by the GS. However, they did not have any 2009 GS460. They did have a pre-owned 2008 GS460 (said it was owned by a Lexus exec) with the Nav/Mark Levinson package priced at $48,000. I drove that and a new GS350 and I like the GS460. This dealer said that the 460s are hard to come by, and that my best bet would likely be to take the used one, especially if I want to beat California's sales tax increase which takes effect April 1.

    $48,000 seems pretty high for a 2008 GS460 with 14k miles, do you guys have any idea of what would be a reasonable price for this car?

    Thanks!

    I want to purchase a 2009 GS in white. Best offer I have so far is $44,000 with 3 years of free maint. and its fully loaded (M/L, nav, etc). Should I ask for lower??????
    :confuse:
  • may i ask what dealership you got that quote from. you can email me if that is breaking some forum rule here. I am beginning to look for quotes as well. Thanks!

    Hello, just curious, have you all look into the bmw 5 series before making your decision to get the GS.

    Don't get me wrong here, I love Lexus, and possibilly a lexus will be my next car.

    But the thing is, I've been to a lexus dealer and a bmw the same day, not once, but 3times. Bmws for some reason excited me a lot more than lexus apart from the many reliability issues I've read about bmws.

    I am looking into CPO GS300 AWD with 26400 miles. The listing has it for 34000 but I would like to know if 25000 is a good starting point? Too high? Since the milage is low, I assume they will not bargain too much (even though it is 4 years old).

    Thanks
  • Is $32900 a good price for a 07' GS350 white, awd, with the following options:

    Navigation System
    Power Sunshade
    Rain Sensing Windshield Wiper
    Rear Parking Sensors
    Ventilated Front Seats
    Rear View Camera
    Self-Leveling Headlights

    TIA

    I know that Lexus offers official F-Sport performance parts for the GS, so I thought that I would share this new 20% discount coupon for purchases of any F-Sport accessories that recently came out here. The coupon is valued at up to $2,000 (20% of a $10,000 purchase) and valid only during the month of July. If anyone's interested, I can e-mail them a .pdf or a .jpg file containing the actual coupon.
