    Hello, I really have no idea how this works and want to make sure I have a good deal on the table.

    2013 RX350 with Nav, Sports appearance Package, heated seats Prem Pkg w/ blind spot

    MSRP $48,915 Lease quoted with nothing down other than tax, licensing first month payment.

    12k miles per year $474.55 before tax 36 months.

    Is this too high or a good deal? Thanks

    First off your msrp with what you have listed does not add up. msrp should be around $52k with a sell price in the $48k range. Could be this is what you meant to convey. If so--yep-- good deal.

    I was given the Vehicle Inquiry Report it says MSRP $48,915.00 Invoice: $46,232.00. Maybe I am listing the packages wrong. But this is what I have. I believe the sell price is $43,432.

    Hi folks. Has any gone from a car like a Camry to an RX, and what can you say about the difference in ride comfort?

    Had a loaded Camry hybrid. The ride was excellent. Problem is-- it was a new 2007. Test drove the new 2011 Camry and the ride and over-all quality went down hill. No where near as comfortable either. Also had a 2008 Prius. Excellent car all around. Traded in for a 2010. Mistake---was not even close to the build or ride quality of the 08. Sorry to say the Toyota line is not as top shelf as it was in the earlier models. I now have a new 2013 RX 350. The ride is quality and so is the build. Quiet,smooth and refined. Mileage is less than stated. But then again I did not buy it for mileage. Bought it for the above stated. Love it. Best auto I have ever owned.
  • I'm buying a 2014 Rx 350. The gross with dealer fees ,options and tax is just about 50,000. How do you guys get them down to 43-45 ? I need some pointers please.
    Thanks
  • We don't. That might happen with a leftover 2013---though I doubt it---
    Figure on a 50k RX about $2-2500 off sticker on a 2014. They look exactly,the same except for wheels. The 2013-- could be an extra 1k off. Depends on that inventory of 2013 models. You will read a whole bunch of bull on what people pay. Go to Edmunds TMV. That will give you a good idea where to start. If your going to lease--- wait for the factory lease specials,to come out. Such as Dec. to remember deals. Those will be the best. Good luck. You will love the vehicle.
  • Let me know how it goes. I'm in the boat.
  • I was offered $3,000 off list but they're trying to make me buy almost every option on the RX 350. I want most but not all of what they have. They tell me that they order them in packages and if I wanted to order one the way I want it would take 4 months and there will be no discount. Sounds like organized crime if you ask me. Anybody else find this to be true ?
  • The RX is a popular auto. But---- four months is a blatant lie. If it were coming directly,from Japan a long wait of about six weeks to port would be about right. These vehicles are already in the US. They come from Canada except for the hybrid. That is built in Japan. So a two week wait from a holding depot would be about normal. All depends on trucking or rail shipments. But--- no way four months. They are giving you the old bull. You should be able to get what you want with-in reason unless you really want a oddball combo.
  • Two different dealers told me about the 4 month wait. I guess they conspire :).
  • Look at it this way. Dealers swap out cars all the time. Why would they not mention that to you. They can view any dealers inventory for the vehicle you would take. Plus if its a 2013 dealers want to move their inventory. They have to pay for those vehicles on their lot. It behoves them to swap. 2014---not as much because they don't have full inventory this early in the model switch.
  • One of the dealers told me ( today ) that they all get together ( in my area ) at the beginning of the year and tell Lexus what packages to produce. So I guess they do conspire :). Oh well. I guess I wanted most of them and I'll try to use/ enjoy the rest.
  • Sorry that's bull. They don't get a price deal by ordering together. Man you have some unethical dealers --- sales people in your area. You should drop a email to one of the VP"s at Toyota motors. I,would think they would want to know whats going on in this district. District manager won't help--- he would not want the bad print and would,keep,things to himself. Go to,the top. I have done that before and it really works. Just keep pressing until you get results. You will at some point. Toyota is excellent to deal with.
  • Well , I didn't care to ( nor did I have the time ) fight City Hall as they say. I got my 2014 loaded , they even had this one window tinted. It was $51,000 ( 50,300 plus 700 fee ) and about 3,0000 tax for a total of $ 54,000. My OTD was $46,000. That 15%. I think I did good.
  • You did amazing.
    May I ask the dealer name?
    How did you get it so cheap? Did you have any incentives thrown in (Lexus ownership? Military ? )
  • I went to three dealers in a 100 mile radius. I told all of them who they were competing with and I had them all appraise my trade. The largest one with the most inventory was most aggressive to not let the other two win. I made them an offer and it only took the sales manager a few minutes with the GM of the dealership to come over and approve my deal.
  • So did the OTD price include your trade price? If so, how much did they appraise your trade for?
  • Yup. I gave them 39,000 and a 2009 Chev HHR ( appraised at 7,000 ) it had two worn tires and needed $500 body work. That was a fair trade in as far as I could tell. It had 38,000 miles on it.

    What I wanted was the base vehicle plus adaptive cruise control plus blind spot monitor. And nothing else. They said such a vehicle will have to be special ordered and that it would take 3 months for the factory to manufacture the vehicle to these specs and then to ship to the dealer. Shipping time is included in the 3 months. The salesman said if I wanted to buy the adaptive cruise control feature off the lot, I would have to buy a car with almost all options included because the factory only builds certain 'popular' package combinations. And that was why my requirement was not available off the shelf.
  • Yup. They got ya coming and going. I'm happy now to have all the options. You only live once is my new attitude and how much do you really want to leave to your kids is my new motto ;). Negotiating a good deal is your only retort.
    Good luck. You'll love it once you get it.
  • Harry, where are you located and what is the name of the dealer? Thanks.
