    @AJ415 said: I think there are a few reasons to go 24 months. Awedio hit the first one about the registration. The second is the residual is a little higher on 24 months vs. 27. The third is that is you are leasing now, 24 months puts you back into the whole December to Remember event in two years. Instead of March the next time around.

    Looks like the 24mo. residual is approx 72%

    52649 x 72% = 37907.28 (my residual value)

  • Hi can someone tell me if this is a good deal? We negotiated with a bunch of dealers in tristate area and it seems this is the best we got so far. Would like some feedback that should we take it now or should we wait until June 2014?

    MSRP total $50030 (without tax, with delivery processing $910, they also throw in a remote start for free)

    2014 Lexus RX 350 AWD - base price 41160 - comfort Package (heated and ventilated seat, HID, etc) $1340 - Navi, backup camera $2775 - Parking assist $500 - premium package $2760 - Wood leather trim steering wheel $330 - Cargo mat etc $ 255

    We are going to take the 2000 rebate with 60 months finance (3.9% APR). The final price is $44000 plus tax. I see some post here have the 2.9% APR, my credit is excellent (800+) so I wonder if the dealer is pocketing that 1%. Plan to payoff the finance after 90 days since all cash deal does not have the $2000 rebate (is this true?)

    We will also trade in our 2009 IS 250 AWD with a bit over 35000 miles for $18000. Can't get better deal even the KBB trade in is 19000.

    Any feedback is appreciated!!

    What do you guys think of this deal. I am planning on leasing and found a dealer that still has a new 2013 RX 350 on their lot. MSRP is $48,045 and the dealer is offering $40,500. Keep in mind this is for a lease so no $2,000 financing cash. I'm not sure if I should consider this or pay a little more for the 2014. Here are the specs on the car:

    PM Premium PKG $2,260.00

    perforated leather trim interior driver seat memory steering wheel memory rear armrest storage w/cover one-touch open/close pwr tilt/slide moonroof w/sunshade pwr folding auto-dimming heated outside mirrors w/memory roof rails

    F sport 19" x 7.5" split 5-spoke alloy wheels w/superchrome finish 235/55VR19 all-season tires F sport front bumper F sport lower grille insert

    EK Premium Audio System $0.00

    cargo net cargo mat wheel locks

  • Seems like a decent deal on the car, but I'm curious what the lease MF and residuals are on the 2013 RX. It's a pretty hefty discount from MSRP, so if the residual isn't horrible you probably do well with this deal. You should check to see if you are elgible for any of the other lease incentives ($500 lease cash, and first month paymnet)

    Also, if MF is higher due to leasing a 2013, you should consider using a MSD to buy down the MF. If you tend to take care of your cars and don't have really high miles, the MSD makes a lot of sense.

    Hi,

    I have been doing my research in this forum on the RX350 for a while and thanks for so many people's contributions. Now, it comes my own deal I got from a Lexus dealer at Maryland. I would like to ask people's thoughts to see if it is a good deal before I go back to the dealer.

    2014 RX350 5-door SUV 4X4:

    Standard Features with 1) Comfort package 2) Navigation system w/Voice Command 3) Intuitive Parking Assist 4) Premium Package 5) Wood & Leather Trimmed Steering Wheel & Shift Knob 6) Cargo Mat, Cargo Net, Wheel Lock

    $43,500 plus $3,680 (Tax, Tag, processing fee, etc.). The price is for a lease price of the RX350. Total: 47,180

    Thanks,

    Thanks everyone for your honest input, I was able to get an F Sport for $47.4K or $2.5K off invoice. This seems like a reasonable deal.

    Hi Everyone,

    Just inked this deal today in NJ:

    2014 Rx 350 F Sport.

    Navigation, Blind Spot Monitoring, Parking Assist, Preferred Accessory Package (Cargo Mat, Cargo Net, Wheel Locks, & Key Gloves)

    MSRP: $52,390

    Sale price: $47,100 - $50 (Free customized plates through DMV) = $47050.

    12k miles, .0010 MF, 69% Residual

    Upfront Costs: $329 Doc, $700 Bank Fee, DMV, 1st month

    $494.75 per month.

    They tried some shady shite but luckily this forum has taught me well. Originally tried to charge me $520 per month until I called them on their bluff. Thanks to all of you...

  • pb007pb007 Posts: 10

    Actually just ran the numbers again. Looks like I got a $46,375 Sale price on this. I originally didn't consider the current incentives. I probably could have held out for a few more $ but I was tired & hungry & would easily have paid some money not to look at those faces any more....

    Plus I got the additional $50 bonus on the free customized plates (because of the frustration at the dealership, too much to describe here.)

    That is the only way my monthly can be $494.75.

    Seems like a great deal to me, would love to hear comments in case I made a mistake somewhere!

    @pilicat
    Which dealer you went with in MD?
    Can you please list exact packages you got?
    Did price of 43.5k include rebate of 2k from lexus finance?

    Would appreciate your response. I would like to close deal before 2 incentive is over which is tomorrow. .

    thanks

    Good idea. Where are you located? I'm in NC.

    Hello,

    I'm in market to buy 2014 RX-350 with following options.

    AWD Premium Package w/ Blind Spot detector Comfort Package. Navigation Package Intutive Parking. 19" Alloy Wheels Cargo Accessories Package. Wood & leather Trimmed Steering Wheel & Shift Nob.

    MSRP is showing up around 51K. Can people who bought recently share how much they paid for Car with similar options. Basically like to know how much off the MSRP is possible.

    Edmunds TMV shows around 49k , that seems much higher than what some of the post suggest. around 43-44k.

    Thanks in advance for your prompt answers.

    Thanks.

  • pb007pb007 Posts: 10

    Ok, so update. Picked up the car yesterday & got all the paperwork.

    Sale price on the contract is $47075.

    $1016.24 in rebates & incentives

    I still can't get the numbers to add up exactly, because at 47,075 payments should be $522.

    At 47075 - 1016.24, payments should be $484.

    I am paying $494.15 per month.

    Maybe the extra amount is the luxury tax in NJ? Thats basically an additional $200 or so.

    Any insights?

    Platinum Warranty - just bought an RX 350 and would like to buy a 125k 6 year warranty ( I drive a LOT!) - read on several forums to try out-of-state dealers, but apparently this has been disallowed by Lexus as of 3 weeks ago. Apparently now I can only get warranties from in-state (Maryland) dealers.

    Anyone have a good idea of what prices I can get 6 yr. /125k Lexus platinum for before I call around?

  • pb007pb007 Posts: 10

    Any opinion on the excess wear & tear warranty offered on leases? They say its $750 but went down to $600.

    If I plan on going into another lease at the end of this one, is it really worth it? My assumption is they will be forgiving on any minor dings / dents etc

  • maks71maks71 Posts: 4

    Looks like this is pretty good deal. Did you buy the car at this rate? Which dealership was it?

    Hi I am new to these forums. I bought a RX 350 today in NJ. here you get only two trims. one with everything including navigation package, the other w/o navigation, but pretty much all else. I bought the one without navigation. MSRP: 47415. Invoice: 44823 (according to truecar). Edmunds estimates TMV as 45492. i was able to buy the car for 41291, which includes the 2000 rebate from Lexus. My confidence in Edmunds is shaken. Can anyone explain the difference ? Thank you.
