2013 and earlier Lexus ES 350 Lease Questions



  • Thank you for all of your help Car man. I figure the tax to be around $80/mo so a payment of $640 would be in the ballpark. They came down to $695, but I keep trying to discuss net cap cost and of course they keep focusing on the payment only. When I layed out the formula for them and it didn't add up, all of the sudden numbers changed and extra fees popped up. I became fed up and stalled the deal. I told them they could do the math however they wanted as long as the payment was $625. I don't mind paying a fair price and allowing the dealers to make a fair profit, I just can't stand the games that get played.

  • Hello,

    Need help. I'm looking to get some success stories on leasing the 2010 ES350 in Pennsylvania.

    I hope that the $536/month deal that "wokscott" got will fly in PA. Please let me know.

    well I can't speak for what the dealerships are offering now, but when I was shopping the ES and RX earlier this year, two separate dealers in eastern PA gave me outrageous lease quotes with a ton of money down; when I went back to NJ, where I live, all three separate dealers I went to in NJ were all lower on the lease payments and on the money down and much more reasonable and able to deal with

    I've read other people on edmunds run into the same problem with the PA Lexus dealers; suffice it to say I'm talking about two dealers in the eastern part of PA, if your out in the central and western part of the state it might be entirely different!

    Best of Luck to You!
  • i live in Eastern PA so I will be able to give feedback about your experience as well. I am beginning to start to shop because my current lease expires the end of January. What kind of deals did you get in Jersey?

    I have no problem taking a drive over to get a better deal.

    Thanks in advance.

    well I could spend about an hour explaining all the different offers I got but here is just one quick example:

    on a 2010 RX350 AWD with Comfort, Premium, Nav, Nav Audio Package, msrp was about or around $45,600 at the time, this was before Lexus changed the base prices this fall

    at one of the PA dealers, I was offered on this RX350, $4000 down, $710 a month for 36 months with 12k miles a year

    this offer, which was non-negotiable by them, was obviously outrageous, so I returned to my home state of NJ and recieved a negotiable offer which I was able to get down to the offer below for the same RX350 and this was the lowest I was able to go

    I was offered on this RX350 in NJ, $3000 down, $590 a month for 36 months with 12k miles a year

    so as you can see, the deal I was offered in NJ was much better then in PA, I had two other NJ Lexus dealers that were half-way between the lowest price I got in NJ and the highest price I got in PA

    unfortunately, my financial circumstances changed and I was not able to get the RX350; keep in mind this was back in June and July when I was shopping around at the Lexus dealers and at that time Lexus was not offering any good leasing support for the RX

    my example is just another reason why it pays to shop around whether your leasing or financing; I've heard on here that starting in October this year the leasing got much better for the RX so hopefully people looking to lease one now are getting great support from Lexus and really good leases!!

    Purchase Price: $38,340

  • Hello leaseguy1. Here's the info that you're looking for. Lexus Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 ES350 with 10,000 miles per year are .00215 and 61%, respectively.

  • Hi birdman17. The money factor and residual value that you were quoted look great. $1,000 over dealer invoice is a decent deal, but I would not be surprised if you were able to shave another couple hundred dollars off of the car's price if you are in an area that has a decent level of competition.

    I live in Southern IN. Just left Lexus dealership. They indicated the MF .00235 and the residual of 59% for 36 months - 10,000 miles per year. This is for December.
    Does this sound right to you?

    Thanks much, mower

    It seemed good, so we went for it:

    MSRP: $40,850*
    Sales Price: $38,138
    Lease term: 36mos./10k
    Monthly payment: $525/mo
    Taxes & all fees paid up front. No cap cost reduction.
    Residual: 61%**
    Money factor: .0025**

    * I guess what we have is Premium Plus w/ Nav. But it was never referred to as that. I know it's not Ultra. No Mark Levinson.
    ** I calculated these by working backwards from the numbers, so I'm not entirely sure that they are correct.
  • Congratulations on getting your new ES, johnva. Thanks for taking the time to share the details of your lease with everyone. If you haven't already, make sure to stop by the Dealer Ratings & Reviews section of to share your thoughts on your recent dealer experience with others as well.

    Enjoy your new ride :shades: !

  • Hey guys. I just got back from the Lexus dealership and am almost ready to sign for a 2010 ES350 silver with black interior and navigation package.

    Here are the numbers tell me what you think PLEASE!

    2010 Lexus ES350
    All options except Ultra Luxury

    MSRP $40,840
    Selling Price $37,151

    58% Residual
    15k miles per year for 36 months

    $705 due at start

    $23,687.20 Buy Out

    Tier 1 Credit MF is .00245

    Total: $600.72 per month

    What do you guys think? Anymore wiggle room? He said he was giving me the car at basically invoice. Please let me know ASAP. Thanks again.

  • Hi ajgabby. The car that you're interested in has a spread of around $4,000 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. The $4,700 dealer discount that you were quoted looks excellent to me. I doubt that you are going to be able to do much better than that.

    Just make sure that the dealer uses Lexus Financial Services' new February buy rate lease money factor of .00215 (for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier) to calculate your car's payment and you're in business.

  • Hi achilles11. the money factors that you were quoted for this car are too high. Lexus Financial Services' February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 ES 350 is only .00215 for consumers who qualify for its top aka Tier 1+ credit tier. If you have excellent credit, make sure that the dealer uses this money factor to calculate your car's payment.

    Now let's look at the other important factor that determines whether this is a good deal, this car's selling price. The car that you are interested in probably has a spread of around $4,000 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. You were quoted a dealer discount of almost $3,700. That probably puts you at only a couple hundred dollars over invoice, which is a very good deal.

    Just get the money factor issue straightened out and go for it.

  • I have been working on leasing an ES350 for couple of month now. Just got my car yesterday. Here are the numbers:

    MSRP: 41,215
    Neg Price: 36,300
    MF: 0.00215
    Down: 0
    Monthly payment: $458/m
    I did pay security deposit, that will be refundable.

    Didnt see this low deal on the forum anywhere, so just sharing.
  • I am working with two different dealers on a ES 350 lease. Here is the better of the two offers - payment seems high compared to what I have read in this forum.

    ES 350 w/ Nav, Park Assist, Rear Spoiler & 17in Alloy wheels
    36 months
    10k miles per year
    $500 down
    Monthly Payment - $606
    MSRP - $41,534
    Sales price - $39,034
    Money Factor - .00215
    Residual - 61%
    Sales Tax - 7%

    Any input you may have is greatly appreciated.
  • If you don't mind me asking, where did you get this deal?
  • Does that monthly payment include sales tax?

    Could you please e-mail me the details of this lease? @

    I would also be very interested on what dealership you worked with on this lease. Please share it with us.

    We were going to lease, but decided to purchase our ES350 yesterday since we got 2.9% for 60 months.

    Here are the lease details we were originally going to go with:

    MSRP $41, 555.00
    Selling price: $38,300.00
    12,000 miles per year / 36 month lease
    $1,512.00 down
    Monthly payment: $555.00
    Money Factor .00215
    Residual: 61%
    Sales tax 5.1%

    We would have put down $1,012,00 more than your deal, but saved $1,836 over the 3 years. Our sales tax is lower, so that contributes to part of the monthly savings.

    $2500 driveoff, 36 mo. 15K/yr based on $36300 invoice, $431/mo lease. Is this a good deal for ES?
  • 10sfan10sfan Posts: 136
    Need to know what was included in the $2500 down payment. How much was for a cap cost reduction vs title, tax,license and processing fees?
