2013 and earlier Lexus ES 350 Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • There does not seem to be many posts on ES 350. Has anyone bought an ES350 with navigation recently or is planning to buy one.

    Can someone share what dealers are charging? I am wondering whether it is worthwhile to wait till the 2012's arrive?

    Appreciate a response.
  • Recently purchased ES 350 2011 from Tampa. MSRP $39980.00 for 2011 base model with Full Size Spare Tire with 17-inch Alloy Wheel, Heated and Ventilated Front Seats, Power Rear Sunshade, Intuitive Parking Assist, Wood & Leather Steering Wheel & Shift Knob, Body Side Moldings,
    Preferred Accessory Package.

    I got it for $39,147.63 out of door. I am planning to keep it for long, so trying to understand whether I need to purchase extended warranty for 7Yrs/100K.
  • Hello,
    I would definitely wait for the redesign of the 2012. I think the 2012 will be loaded more techie stuff, will have improved navigation and better styling, not that I'm complaining. I have a 2009 with nav/park assist and I love everything about it, however, if I was in the market for an ES today, I would wait for the 2012.
  • there are no changes to the 2012 model other than an exterior color change (addition of some kind of new gray pearl color in place of one of the others).

    2013 is the refresh year for the es350.
  • I meant to post this to you siddharth:

    "there are no changes to the 2012 model other than an exterior color change (addition of some kind of new gray pearl color in place of one of the others).

    2013 is the refresh year for the es350."

    the only question now is, is the 1.9% APR, 60 month financing coming back after the 2.9% APR special expires? I usually pay in cash but this low of rate is too good to pass up (cheap cost of money; I can invest it and return more than that). Also wondering if any manufacturer rebates will be coming to help clear out the 2011s. The rise of the yen lately relative to the dollar has not been good for those of us purchasing Japanese goods. Yen is up about 10% over the dollar in the last year. If we don't fall into another recession, I can see the yen falling back to this level in '12.
  • The extended warranty is just an insurance policy. The provider must collect more than he pays out or it he will not make money on the transaction. Why would Lexus offer a product like insurance if they knew they would loos money?

    That is the reasoning that led me to decline the offer. If I was purchasing a used vehicle whose previous care I knew little, then I might take such an offer if available.
  • I too am holding out for the redesign. I think the interior and dash are dated (2006) and need to be refreshed. Does anybody know if the 2013 model will come out early in the Spring of 2012 or in the traditional time of Sept. 2012? I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's sooner than later because the Camry just came out and the ES should follow and also the current model is showing its age.
  • Just bought a 2011 ES350, MSRP of $43,503. Gave me $22,000 trade in on my '07 ES350 Ultra with 54,900 miles. Got the $1,000 Lexus Loyalty Rebate, additional rebate of $750 plus dealer discount of $1,753 off the car along with 2.9% financing. Got the 72 month / 70,000 mile Platinum Extended Warranty for $753 (MSRP of $1,400) too. The dealer, at first, wanted $24,000 plus my car for this ES350. After getting up and ready to leave, they came down to $18,000 plus my car. That would have been a lot of $ to leave on the table. But we were ready to go to another Lexus dealer 70 miles away versus the local one that is only four miles away.

    Hi, I'm helping my parents shop for a ES350 with Nav, Parking assist, Ultra package (HID lights, heated seats, rear shade, wooden steering wheel). Anyone purchase one recently or is shopping for one? I've made initial contact with several dealers around me, quotes I received are for approximately $39,000 just for the car (incl dest charge). They all seem skittish to commit to a number as they know I'm going to take it to another dealer.
    Also, is October a good month to buy? I know they always advertise a December to remember sale, but not sure if that's just marketing Bs or the deals are really better than.
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    I'm shopping around for a ES350 w/o Nav. I got $2500 below invoice plus additional $1000 loyalty rebate. FYI.

    dude. my local lexus dealer offers $3500 under invoice plus $1000 royalty rebate now. Which is essentially $7500 under MSRP. Huge deal.

    What is your MSRP and where is the dealership located.

    Thanks

    Thank you so much for this tip. Based on your experience we just point blank asked for $2000/- below invoice. And was surprised to get it too. MSRP was 43,061/- Invoice was 39,400/- we got it for 37,500/- and opted for they dent protection for five years $799/- and also any dents or dings will be fixed for the next five years. It was also for another $700/- but ygthen got a $1000/- discount as on Nov 5th is official opening of Dec 2011 for Gwinnett Lexus in GA. Our walkout price with tag, tax and title was 41,539/-. I jsut saw another post for someone getting almost $7000/- below invoice but don't regret it atall. I think the sales person too deserves a good Christmas. :-)
  • We just purchased a Lexus ES350 from Bernadette at Lexus Santa Monica. She was great...professional, responsive, and a woman of her word. She's the internet sales manager and she gave us a great price on the car and made the entire process as painless as she possibly could. When you're shopping around for your next Lexus, I strongly suggest you give her a call before you make any final decisions. She could not have taken better care of us and I will be going back to her for our next Lexus!
  • could you kindly send me more information on how to get this deal? matkohlk@yahoo.com

    Can you shae how much you paid for it?
  • $32,700 for the 2011 base with heated/ventilated seats, the accessory package including rear bumper applique. I think they threw something else in but I don't recall what it was. San Francisco was asking more for same car and Seattle was outrageous for the vehicle.

    At this point you may get better price but you are more limited in color selection. We only wanted either deep sea mica or smokey granite with grey interior and there were not many available. Good luck.
  • Lexus of Pleasanton offered me a 2011 ES350 Loaded to $42,000 MSRP for $35,700.

    Good Deal? Should I take it?

    What colors do you guys recommend?
  • A month ago that was a quote I received and was a good deal. Not sure today as dealers are trying to get rid of all their 2011's. Too bad you're not closer to Santa Monica because I think it would be worth your time to contact Bernadette to see if she would beat the price. The good thing about Bernadette is she doesn't beat around the bush...she tells you either she will or she will not. But due to distance, whatever you save with her you would lose in time and gas. It may still make sense to call her for affirmation of whether or not you're getting a good price.

    Smokey granite is my favorite color.
  • I got an offer for 35,200.

    The main point now is it color you want ? if so, go for it.
  • We purchased one over the weekend

    Cong. Just curious, $32,500 w/ or w/o $1000 loyalty rebate? I got this price w/ royalty rebate one month ago in Southern CA.
  • First time Lexus buyer so without the $1,000 loyalty rebate
    Love the ride in this car
  • mrd4mrd4 Posts: 27
    YOu don't need to own a lexus car before. They offer such rebate if you own other luxury brand car also.
  • mrd,

    2011 Base with following
    Heated/Ventilated seats
    Wood steering
    full size spare
    Rear Parking Sensors
    Sell price ~ 33K +TTL -1000 rebate =35xxx

    The rebate comes after you pay taxes and is available to any luxury owner.
    I might have saved few hundred bucks by shopping around I guess...but decided not too

    Bought from Lexus of El Cajon through ZAG/American Express buying service.
