  • This internet sales person is deceptive. I asked for the quote on the model 2007 RX350 AWD with M.Levinson package. He quoted $39,530, which gave me a little skeptical thought. So I confirmed if the option I provided, did you quote it right? then he replied if you want the navigation, it costs little more...but he was willing to throw premium package. And guess what? I became not to trust sales person ever again. M.Levinson package itself comes with navigation, AND premium package, and you can't install it BY ITSELF!. In this case sales person presumed I have no clue about the package they offer. Now, this person doesn't give me answer and I just have to assume the guy got fired.

    Where did you find a '07 RX with the Mark Levinison option? My local dealer says there are none to be found. They even told me they are only being shipped to west coast dealers, so I cannot even order one. Can this be right? I am in Virginia. I would buy one today if I could find one.

    My understanding is you can only get the
    Mark Levinson stereo with the navigation.
    Is this what you mean, or did you mean the
    ML without the Nav? Now, if it includes the
    navigation, I find it hard to believe that it
    can't even be ordered! You might want to check
    with other dealers in your area or close by.

    Mark Levinson stereo with the navigation system is what I'm looking for.

    I'm not sure where in VA you live, but if you're interested, you could try Lexus of Silver Spring in MD. I also live in VA but have just ordered an RX350 with "Performance Package" from them after being given the run-around from VA dealers. I found L-SS very easy to work with.

    Let me know if you want the name of the salesman.

    First, many thanks to various folks providing inputs to this board. Just reached a deal with Park Place @ Grapevine (TX) on a RX-350 + Premium Pkg + Additional Options (as described @ Lexus.com) for 36.7+TTL. We probably could have done it at 36.6+TTL but we are satisfied with the experience. We will wait after 8/15, however, to take the $500 bonus from Lexus Pursuit. So overall, with the MSRP @ 40818, it was a pretty good deal.

    Got one delivered on 8/15 as well. Around 42.9 drive-out. Could not get lower than that in South East.

    I just got an RX 350 Saturday with the options below. Drive out price was $39.5K at Sterling McCall Lexus in Houston. Also included was tinted glass, striped, and plastic bras for the front end and rear view mirrors. I don't know how much extra would these cost but they didn't charge me for them. The price of $39.5 was turned down at Westside Lexus so I went in to Sterling and told them I would paid $39.5 or I would leave. Less than 5 minutes later, the salesperson came back with the agreement. I am still wondering if I can get it cheaper than this. Anyway, I was prepared to pay $40K drive out so $39.5 is good enough.
    Here is the package I received:
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Premium Package - Luxury Value Edition includes:
    - Leather-trimmed interior
    - Power tilt-and-telescopic steering column with memory
    - Illuminated entry system
    - Power tilt-and-slide moonroof with one-touch open/close and sliding sunshade

    Additional Options:
    - Two-level heated front seats (includes rain-sensing variable intermittent wipers and headlamp washers)
    - 18-in alloy wheels (235/55VR18 and full-size spare)
    - Towing prep package
    - Cargo mat
    - Wheel locks

    Is it AWD or FWD?
  • That's a great price. Can you share with whom you dealt with at Sterling McCall?
  • hungt23hungt23 Posts: 2
    The salesperson's name is Ken Ward. Steve Tran is the salesperson for the other couple that got the same deal.
    My RX is a FWD. AWD would cost a little more and we don't need that in Texas. Hope this help.

    We're looking for our first Lexus after 3 Toyotas: An '07 RX 350 equipped with:

    MSRP $44,123
    Breakwater Blue w/Grey or black interior

    Premium Plus Luxury Value Edition
    NAV
    Rainsensing wipers
    18" alloys
    wheel locks
    cargo mat

    What is a good price for this vehicle?
    Thanks.
  • What was MSRP on this vehicle? From looking at Lexus.com, It looks like you got this for $1300 under MSRP. Are they really selling at this price?
  • phongddophongddo Posts: 11
    FYI, the base MSRP was 37400. Destination was 695. The Premimum Pkg w/ Additional Options was 2723 MSRP. So the total MSRP was 40818. We got ours for 36.7+TTL. So it was 4118 off MSRP. If you factor in the $500 bonus from Lexus Pursuit, it's like 4618 off MSRP. We got ours at ParkPlace @ Grapevine.

    I don't know what is a good price for this but I got mine exactly like yours in San Diego for the price of $39,863, 500 dollars above the invoice price, plus ttl.
  • lvn098lvn098 Posts: 26
    Did you get the car?
    I got a similar quote, but when I looked at the paperwork, there was $389 doc fee and I was told it's not avoidable, everyone does it.
  • hxs30hxs30 Posts: 6
    I did.

    How do you like the deal?
  • gnu892gnu892 Posts: 9
    I was under the impression that a vehicle like this:

    MSRP $44,123
    Breakwater Blue w/Grey or black interior

    Premium Plus Luxury Value Edition
    NAV
    Rainsensing wipers
    18" alloys
    wheel locks
    cargo mat


    would go for about $41200 or something OTD in Los Agneles. I thought I saw a post somewhere on here...am I going crazy?
  • lvn098lvn098 Posts: 26
    Base MSRP* $37,400.00

    Available Package $6,188.00

    Accessory Options $0.00

    Lexus voice-activated DVD Navigation System (includes backup camera and Bluetooth® technology) Included
    Two-level heated front seats (includes rain-sensing variable intermittent wipers and headlamp washers) Included
    18-in alloy wheels (235/55VR18 and full-size spare) Included
    Towing prep package [9] Included
    Cargo mat Included
    Wheel locks Included

    Delivery, Processing & Handling Fee † $695.00

    Total MSRP** $44,283.00

    41.2k OTD is a super deal, take it. I had to pay 43k OTD here.
  • I have read all the post and seen that many are paying around $500 over invoice. It looks like most of the best deals are in TX and CA. My question is does anyone know the best prices people have seen in the SouthEast, particularly here in GA? I am interested in a NAV with MSRP of $44,283, and have been quoted $41,500 as the best he can do. He also said that there is no way that anyone is selling this car at $500 over invoice. Any info would be greatly appreciated. If I can save a few grand by buying in MD, I would be willing to do that as well, father lives there.
  • What was your final price before Tax, tag and Title?
  • gnu892gnu892 Posts: 9
    There are RX 350s equipped with the luxury value package (at least in So California). Aren't they RX's with the MSRP and invoice adjusted (i.e. MSRP from $44,123 to $45,023 for an RX with Premium plus, navi, 18", cargo mat, wheel locks, heated seats/rain sensing wipers)? I'm confident that either will sell for invoice, or a couple hundred over invoice. So my question is: ARE DEALERS SELLING THE UNADJUSTED ONES ($45,023) FOR THE READJUSTED ($44,123) prices?

    Anyone think I can get one for invoice?

    I decided to post here since it is where people read the most...
    While Lexus makes quiet cars...did anyone notice more engine noise than the Lexus "norm" in the RX 350? After driving the ES 350 and the GS 300, the RX seems to roar a little more. There is also wind noise coming from roofrack and around the A pillars, not to mention some road noise. All of these things were at street speeds of 40MPH or less. Seems to me, the ride and "quietness" are almost identical to my 2004 4 cyl Camry LE- which was quieter than the Lexus when I first bought it and got louder as it aged. Is this just because RX is an SUV?

    Didn't get a chance to highway test the RX...is it stable at speeds over 75? How's the ambient (wind, road, engine) noise? Thanks, I appreciate it.
  • lvn098lvn098 Posts: 26
    40.1k plus $389 doc fee before TTL.
    I am in GA as well, the car is ready for me to pick up on 8/15

    If you want, send email to me and we can talk on the phone.
  • maximafanmaximafan Posts: 592
    I thought the exact same thing when I first
    started up the engine on the RX350!
    I had driven a 2004 RX330 back in 2004 and I
    recall that the car while sitting in idle was
    much more quiet than the 2007. Wow. I thought
    it was just me. Also, I thought maybe the tires were overinflated on the 2007 that I
    test drove because I was feeling all the
    imperfections in the road. I test drove the
    IS250 and it was more quiet engine noise-wise.
    But the suspension was really stiff on the IS.

    I also drove the new ES350 and I was disappointed in that vehicle overall also.
    I also noticed possibly some of the idiosyncrasy of the new 6-speed transmission on
    the ES. Overall, I liked the RX the best and
    felt it had the best power over the other two.

    I have a friend at work who owns a 2005 RX330.
    I asked her if I could either drive hers or just start it up to see if I could see the
    difference in quietness between the two.
    I'll let you know when I get to find this out.

    I'm also in the market - live in VA just outside the beltway off 66. Can I ask if you purchased or leased?
  • my3rdrxmy3rdrx Posts: 167
    I'll be leasing as I've done so for my last three RXs. Since my car hasn't come in yet, the dealership would not negotiate any leasing term until it gets here.

    What was the first quote they gave you before they agreed to 36.7 + TTL? who is your salesman?
  • phongddophongddo Posts: 11
    Forgot exactly what the first quote was. Either 37.2 or 37.3. Salesman name is K.N. I think the forum does not like having salesman name posted, so K.N. is the best I can do. However, your mileage may vary. We have no trade in and we don't finance through LFS. We bought 2 new Lexi from them already, one in '93 and one in '00. Just FYI.
  • I just purchased an 07 Breakwater Blue AWD with FT,HH,PT,TO,C1,WL and got them to throw in the hard plastic cargo tray and all-weather floor mats for $39K+TTL (in New England) which is just under the invoice they showed me. MSRP is $43,033 and their first offer was $40,600+TTL.

    They also offered 5.36% financing for tier 1.
