    I was quoted $41600 for an rx with a $46,600 MSRP. I know i can bring it down to $41,000. I would definitely rather buy from MI but i don't want to pay $1000 more and get less options. email me your phone number and we can talk over the phone.

    Looks like I am unable to retrieve your e-mail. Unsure if it's due to the setting.. any workaround! You can try sending an e-mail to me.

    This is my first post. I am from Minnesota, which has only two Lexus dealership. Both owned by the same group. I am unable to get anything below $1500 off the MSRP of a $49,535 (AWD, comfort, premium, nav, etc).
    Can you tell us the name of the dealer in VA? Do you plan to drive the RX from VA to Michigan or do you arrange it to be delivered?
    Thanks in advance.

    HI CBCT,

    I faced the same problem when I bought my RX350 in 2008, your best bet is to get it from Chcago area dealers or Milwaukee....McGrath in Chicago (they have 2 or 3 in the chicago and suburbs), has over 100 RX350 in stock and they will deal, unlike Twin Cities area dealers....

    Good luck!

    I'm in the virginia area looking for an rx350 also, if you want to add my to the group... I can be reached at jekwone at the g type email
  • You should be able to get alot more off of the RX. Google the largest Lexus dealer in FL and email them for the best price, no negotiating necessary, they will ship it to you. It will be well worth it just tell them the color and options you want, its a done deal , easy, no haggle.
    Good luck, Susan :shades:
  • When do the 2012 RX350 come out? Also, Has anyone had an Acura MDX before, and could you compare to the Lexus RX350?
  • if anybody wants to email me at [email protected], i am in the middle of negotiating a deal for this weekend. Let me know we can get a better price as a group

  • @mi0007 just sent you an email. I'm in VA and would be ready to buy this weekend if we can get a good price. Let me know.

    Just purchased RX350 AWD with premium package, backup camera, heated seats, park assist, wood trim steering wheel and knob, accessory package and cross bars. MSRP of $46,071 and paid $43k with 1.9% financing. Did I get a good deal?
  • Just was quoted $41k + tax license docs for an MSRP $44376.00. Is this good? Can they go lower, he said they are making $200 on this.
  • Thanks to @mi0007 i just purchased a rx350 he kind of negotiated a deal for from lindsay lexus in alexandria va. It was a "pre Japan" model as the dealer called it so it had lower msrp. It has AWD, nav, premium,comfort, wood trim, crossbars, 12 speaker audio, and towing prep. MSRP was 48k, invoice 43,933 and we negotiated 600 off invoice for 43,333+ tax tags (out the door at 44,827 with va tax). Worked out good because most models with nav had park assist which this didnt. So that in addition to it being pre japan helped bring the price down considerably for me. He was also willing to do 44,200+ tax tags on a current higher msrp model that also had park asst. But it wasnt worth the extra 900ish for me.
  • Lexus Longo took delivery of a few of these already. However, the pricing is not that good at the moment.

  • Lexus USA General Manager Mark Templin said during the monthly sales conference call: "Another strong performer for us this month was the RX with sales of 6,504. It continues to be the luxury SUV sales leader and our dealers are looking forward to receiving even more of them in the near future."

    "Production of the RX from our North American plant in Canada is now full steam ahead. In fact, they’re actually going to build 140 percent of planned production for the 4th quarter.

    The most important news for Lexus is that overall Lexus production has improved dramatically and will continue to rise. Vehicle production will be 18 percent higher than the 4th quarter of 2010, so we’ll have plenty of models and variations for customers to choose from through the end of the year."
  • Susan,

    Which dealership is that? Multiple matches came up.
    I live in Austin, TX and there is only one dealership here and they
    really don't do any negotiating, at most they will do is $1000 off the MSRP.

  • JM Lexus on the east coast of FL, they will do the deal over the internet for below invoice pricing and ship it to you. :shades:

    Anyone aware of Chicago area or Midwest Lexus dealers who will negotiate on a new 2011 RX 350 under invoice?
  • ab10000ab10000 Posts: 127
    Do you have to pay for shipping? and do they ship it to your home?
  • You can buy the car over the internet, the price at JM Lexus is under invoice and yes you do have to pay for shipping put the price of the vehicle is well worth the trouble. This is the best time of the year to buy a new car! Know your prices, no haggling :shades:
  • So I gave JM Lexus a try and it's a no go. Their first offer was $160 below MSRP, so after adding in my shipping cost, it's actually more than the MSRP.
    I told the rep I thought this dealership's policy is hassle free buying experience and he gave me the usual "it's supply and demand" speech. He asked me to submit my counter offer. If I want to play this game, I'm going to play it with my local dealership and don't have to pay to shipping. JM Lexus may have given a great deal in the past but I wouldn't recommend anyone wasting their time dealing with them now. :(
    Good luck hunting your RX, as I'm still looking for mine!
  • What is your status of buying RX350?
    I am in Detroit area and I am ready to buy a very basic RX 350 AWD, Satin Cashmere Metalic + Parchment. My traget is $600 below invoice. Is it feasible?
  • Hello,

    Dealer is offering a CPO 2010 RX350 AWD Base w/ Premium Pkg, Backup camera [23] integrated into inside rearview mirror, Heated and ventilated front seats. It has 49,500 miles on it. The sale price is USD 35,000 excluding tax and fees.

    Is this a good price? I test drove it and felt in love but not sure if the price is legit for this mileage and features the car has.

    Please advice.

  • Dealer is lowering price to $33.5 excluding tags, fees and taxes. Is this a good deal?

    Hi, I was wondering what kind of pricing are you guys getting for 2012 RX350. Best quote i got so far is 1k over invoice. Is this a good price? Should i wait until December? Any info. or advice would be greatly appreciated.
  • ab10000ab10000 Posts: 127
    I do not think this is the best time to buy especially in Ca, dealers are short on inventory and the 2012 msrp with typical options is around 48k. They are not willing to come down. These cars use to sell in the low 40s but now this is difficult. I am going to wait until I see inventory back up hopefully by end of year and take advantage of December to Remember. I am in no hurry

    The wife & I just picked up one of the last 2011s in Chicagoland. MSRP was $45550, leased it with a cap cost of about $42k. I had dealt with a bunch of dealerships looking for this car and basically no one else had a 2011. While they were willing to deal somewhat on the 2012s ($2k-$3k under MSRP) the financing isn't there yet on the 2012s, that is that Lexus finance isn't subsidizing these in any way right now so the money factor is high and the residual is low. For tax reasons it makes the most sense to lease this, which is why we went with the 2011 on a lease.

    Thanks to all who posted info, it was helpful going into negotiations.
  • Hi

    Well, I went to two deals over the weekend. One offered $700 MSRP and the other $400 off MSRP..Im located in boston,ma. I guess no one is in a rush to sell since the 2012 just arrived.
  • ab10000ab10000 Posts: 127
    What was your MF, residual and payment?
  • After talking to these two guys, I was able to purchase a 2012 RX350 AWD for $44,500. Options included Navigation, Premium, Comfort, Parking Assist, Wood Trim, 12 Speaker Audio, Crossbars & Accessories (Cargo Mat/Net & Wheel Locks). MSRP was $49,619. Not too shabby right? :)

    I was offered a similar 2011 without Parking Assist for $42,900 but it wasn't the right color combo and figured the 2012 was worth the difference.
