    good deal. I think my base model is w/o rear parking sensors. Jumped a little bit early, anyway they are good deal for both of us :-)
  • rear parking sensors were dealer installed options I believe $500.00 for 4 sensors in the rear.

    Hi,
    I am in middle of Job Relocation from NJ to Austin, TX.
    I've been considering ES350 because current vehicle ( IS250 AWD )
    will be no useful in Texas weather.
    I've been search both locations under Truecar, but surprisingly,
    there is no discount in Texas region.
    Texan price was closed to MSRP Price while NJ price was -$2000 below Invoice.
    It's no brainer to purchase one from NJ, and drive down there since I was going to drive IS250 down to Texas anyway.

    First, what makes it huge difference in regions?
    Even Lexus website shows different Lease price in two region.
    What else should I consider besides Time and Gas?

    - Tax: NJ (7%) vs TX (8.25%)
    - Title / Registration: I will loose 4 Yrs of NJ Registration which is prepaid during purchase

    It looks we are lucky in Southern CA, $6500 under MSRP for ES350. Is that because we are close to the long beach port?

    Is it for 2011 or 2012? Could you let me know where you get it, and the model and price details? Thanks.
  • mrd4mrd4 Posts: 27
    yes, it's 11' model. Theoretically there is no difference between 11' and 12' model. I see three posts (1 in orange county, 2 in san diego county) got $6500 under MSRP for 11' ES350.
  • just go to ZAG.com and use american express pricing...
    and you will get an idea

    Dear #2698 - regarding your 11.28.11 post about the pricing of the loaded Lexus ES 350, were you able to find better than $38k OTD (out the door)? To clarify, when you say $38k OTD, does that mean total out-of-pocket cost, including tax and all fees? Would you mind sharing the name of the dealership and the sale person from whom you purchased. Thank you for your time.

    Hi ,

    I am new to this forum so not sure whether this is the location for my question.

    I have been looking for a car for myself & found one deal. This one is 2009 lexus ES350(moon shell mica color) with 20000 miles. There is no navigation or back up camera. This car is priced at $23950+TTL. There is 4 years/50k warranty also.
    Location is Dallas,TX.
    I like the color but someone told me this is not one of the favorite color in today's world. I am a married man of middle thirty age. Is this color for the 60+ people?
    Is this a good deal?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Had at deposit down on a 09 Audi A6, but while selling my car to Carmax, I stumbled onto a deep blue (metalic) 09 ES350 every thing except Mark Levinson/rear camera and auto park. Got price to $26.8K and bought there warranty extention of 72 mo/no bumperdeductable bumper2 for an additional 1279. Boca Raton FL lease return with 19621 actual, starting 10/10. Salesman said front seats were "air conditioned". I see here actual product is "ventilated". Dark metalic Teal exterior/ parchment interior with wood/ leather etc. Bought on impulse after short test drive.
    Normally I do some research, but tired of Euro Sedan repairs bills - BMW/Porche cand Jags (2).
    Car is mint - not a scratch or rock ding. Ran TMV for Certified to $34K so 2 6.8 seems fair for a So FL no snow/salt sedan. ?????Experts?????
  • nabhanabha Posts: 2
    I think you have done good but I am not an expert. I am also buying ES350 ,2009 with 19980 miles, the dealer is offering me extended warranty for 4 years/50k miles ,price $1800.
    Can you please tell me about the warranty you bought because the price looks really good. I have tried to look for warranty online but its confusing like what is covered & what is not ?

    Thanks for your time!

    Our 2008 ES is Moon Shell Mica, but the color must not have been too popular, as Lexus dropped the color after 2009. It's pink for God's sake & may not appeal to many men. An older woman owned/drove our car before we bought it. BTW- we are in our 60s, ha ha.

    We bought our ES in December for $24K with NAV, back-up camera, heated/cooled seats, etc. with 41K miles. Still some factory warranty left too.

    Extended warranties need to be carefully read before buying. Toyota's Platinum warranty (really?) is NOT a bumper-to-bumper warranty and there is a looong list of exclusions. We were offered it for $1700 and we passed on it, but we can still go back & get it if we think we REQUIRE the extra coverage.
  • Can anyone give me an idea how much is the OTD price of ES350 with navigation in Los Angeles/Southern California region? Toyota's fiscal year ends on Mar 31. Is it the best time to buy Lexus? If not, when according to your experience? What's the difference between the Navigation/Mark Levinson Audio Package and the navigation system available as an interior option? Thanks!

    Hi CarMan:

    I would like to know the MF and Residual for the 2012 Lexus ES for a 10K and 15K 36 Month Lease. It looks like with the Conquest rebate, a negotiated price should be at best around $4000 off MSRP ?

    I am the original owner of a 2007 ES350. While price is important, consider that you are buying possible the best car on the market. I am intending to buy the 2013 ES when introduced, however I really don't want to give up my 07. If you've never had a Lexus, you will be blown away by the service. The European cars don't have the reliability of the Lexus or the amazing service. The "reviewers" don't give Lexus the respect it deserves. They dribble over the European cars, that will let you down. The feel of quality surrounds you. Listen to the "thud" when you close the doors - quality. I get 24 mpg on regular gas, cumulative from when I bought my car 12/06. My two cars previous to my Lexus were more expensive, but not as satisfying. I would only consider a Lexus going forward. It doesn't get better. Buy a clean ES, with as many options as you can, and you will never regret it. :)

    I only wanted to add that I also have enjoyed my 2007 ES350. The service I received from my Lexus dealer was great~! - the only problem is the closest Lexus dealer is over an hour away from where I live. The interior lighting had alot to be desired and the only other complaint I had is the GPS. Other than that it is a great car and I am considering one of the SUV's in the next year or so.

    Is the 2013 worth waiting for?

    Will the 2012 be heavily discounted?

    Lexus ES350 vs. Camry XLE .... is it night and day and worth the price difference?
  • koppsuzkoppsuz Posts: 13
    Any thoughts on the radio?

    Is the 2013 worth waiting for? The 2013 will be a major change from the 2012, with more bells & whistles. If you don't mind being a guinea pig for Lexus (debugging & troubleshooting a new model), it may be your thing.

    Will the 2012 be heavily discounted? I think that depends on how well the 2013 sells when initially offered. If there's no takers for the left-over 2012s, you can expect to see some discounting--no telling how much discount though.

    Lexus ES350 vs. Camry XLE .... is it night and day and worth the price difference? You actually asked two questions here, but my answer would be "YES" to both. Depends on what you want from your car though. Some people don't like the feeling of isolation & solitude the Lexus provides. I love it.

    Preferred Accessory Package: Cargo Net/Trunk Mat/Whl
    Locks/Rear Bumper Applique $328.00

    I don't think that I got a stellar deal to brag about but shouldn't be bad either

    Thanks everybody in the forum for providing valuable info

    As the title states, I am currently set on purchasing a 2012 ES 350. Just standard base model without any bells or whistles. I live in Atlanta, GA. The listed MSRP is $36,725 and invoice is $34,400. I just wanted to get a general idea of the purchase price I should shoot for before PF, destination charges, and TTL. I have heard that 2,500~3,000 below the invoice is a good starting point so would I target for somewhere around 32,000 before the usual fees? I would appreciate any feedback and any purchasing experience. Thank you.
  • koppsuzkoppsuz Posts: 13
    That sounds like an excellent price. I paid more than that for a 2007

    In January of 2009, I bought an UltraLuxury (Glass panoramic roof, Mark Levinson, etc) 2008 brand new ES 350 with less than 80 miles as a left over from the dealer. MSRP 45450, I paid 35500 plus taxes. Moral of the story "it all depends upon supply and demand" Good Luck and happy Buying.
    P.S. I love the car

    Initial price of the 2012 ES was $47,678 with tax. Was able to get that price down to $43,000 OTD. Not as good as some other buyers but non the less a great deal and buy. Robert James was a quality salesman and gave us a smooth and fast process.

    Hi - I am looking to buy a fully loaded Lexus ES 350 2012 fully loaded (luxury package, disk based nav) in the next few weeks. I live in PA but am willing to travel to NJ, NY, MD, VA for the right price. Anyone has purchased one recently in any of these states? Any estimates on price/receommendations for a dealer?

    Thanks,
