    I'm thinking about buying a 2012 with the navigation and preferred package and got a price for 49500 Inc taxes in Canada but also have options in the states.

    2 questions is this a good price and second with the 2013 due out in august will the 2012 prices see a further decrease so I should wait a couple a months

    Hi Guys. I am currently looking at a Lexus ES 350 for my mother, got a quote from a local dealer but not too impressed by the offer. Options on car are: Full Size Spare, heated front seats, wood wheel and knob, preferred accessory package, paint protection film, and aftermarket rear sensors, total MSRP w/ delivery is $39,826, their offer price was $38,500. This was not nearly the discount I was expecting. Am I off base? Any recommendation in the SW Ohio area? Thanks......Mark.

    Your best deal is at JM Lexus in Fl, largest Lexus dealer in the world. You can do it all over the internet, name your price they will take it. They will ship it to you if you dont want to drive there. Largest inventory around.
    I have bought 3 cars there. Sooz. :shades:

    Hi Sooz

    Is there anyone in particular that I need to speak with at JM? Looking to purchase ES 350 this month
  • I am looking for a used ES350 in Maryland and have gone the Carmax route but not found the right one yet. I now want to explore the local Lexus dealers used inventories.

    Much has been written on these forums about new car buying pricing and strategies, but very little about used car prices. Carmax seems to have fair market pricing but Lexus dealership pricing on similar vehicles is over several thousand higher. Has anyone bought a used Lexus from a Lexus dealer. Can fair market value prices for their used cars be negotiated??
    Any suggestions or hands on experiences greatly appreciated!

    I am looking for 2012 ES 350 with Navigation in NJ
    Any suggestion for price without TTL

    Also should I wait for 2013 ES 350?

    The 2013's are already out. Saw one yesterday at a local Lexus dealer. The interior looks much better. However, I did not care for the black dash.

    what was the cost without TTl?
  • geo123geo123 Posts: 33
    The car was loaded. It had a suggested MSRP of about $44K. You can go to and configure a 2013 with the options that you would like to have. What is interesting is the base invoice cost is only about $2,285 less the MSRP. Also, the factory options have very little markup. Makes you wonder how the dealer is really making their money selling a new unit.

    Realize it's early days, but anyone have buying experience with a 2013 ES? Buying in Dallas. Sewell and Park Place both quoting MSRP. No discount, financing incentive or loyalty bonus.

    Sales guys say "hey, it's a brand new model get in line" anyone have a different experience? Predictions on whether they will dissent during the December sale?

    Thanks for any info.
  • Make an offer. Look up the trade-in prices and remember that those are often higher than what a dealer will offer for someone's trade, or are higher than an auction price. I'd use the Edmunds or Blue Book trade in price like an invoice price on a new car.

    Dealers make more money on the used side than the new, because the margins are better. If they list a car for $25k, you can probably bet there is at least a few thousand in profit in that number. If you can buy it for something closer to book trade-in value compared to retail, then you probably did OK. CarMax tends to be lower than dealer retail, but are usually not great deals, plus they apparently do not negotiate.

    Signed today on a 13' ES, Blue w/blk inter ion. Lux pkg+Nav $43552 (plus sales tax). Park Place Plano, TX. Absolutely no wiggle room on MSRP but they threw in dealer installed tint, pinstripes,.5% off LFS best rate and Clear Shield.

    Of note: pretty much a feeding frenzy when I was in the dealership. Two observations; the $880 up charge for 18" wheels was getting a lot of resistance --dealer saying this is how certain cars are equipped and we can't change it. second thought; if you are in a market where there are competitive Lexus dealers, work it. Sewell and Park Place fought hard for this sale despite strong demand for this model -- local bragging rights or something more$$$$$?
  • I want to buy 2013 ES 350 this month with Premium package, Navigation,blind spot monitor, parking assist and heated seats. I would like to hear the price paid and potential discount from anybody who has bought 2013 ES 350.

    Guys, third post from me on purchase of 2013 ES. Picked mine up this afternoon and didn't park it until dusk! Fun, fun, fun to drive. The haptic system that controls the screen driven functions works great. Ride is smooth and the fit and finish is awesome.

    Now for the crappy part--are you listening Lexus?

    Why isn't there a place to rest your phone? Lots of bluetooth technology but no place to rest your phone within easy reach. Truly a pain in the butt.

    And why in the world would you get rid of the sun glasses holder?????? Lexus pioneered the storage cubbyhole and it was a GREAT idea. Why are we going backward???

    2012 ES 350 with Navigation. Dealer quoted $37,000 before TTL. Is it a good price. Can I counter offer to $36,000?

  • That is a very subjective decision only you to make.

    FWIW I just paid 33k including taxes and titling fees for a certified 2010 ES350 with NAV and new michelins.

    The certified warantee starts after the original new car warantee ends.
    The 2010 was in excellent shape with a little over 24000 miles

    I purchased a 2012 ES350 w/ Nav last week from Dallas. MSRP about $43,100,paid $36,900 including tint, pinstripe, and delivery to Houston. Starfire Pearl/ Light Gray Interior
  • Can you share the buying price,options, MSRP and the dealer name.

  • We just bought a 2013 ES350 MSRP was 43700 paid 41700...2K off MSRP. Not sure if that is a good deal or not, but thought others could get at least that.
  • Can anyone share what you paid?

    I found a new 2012 ES350 with navigation for $36900....Is that an ok deal?
  • lpnclpnc Posts: 9
    From what I know, this seems to be a pretty decent deal. I'm still debating between 2012 and 2013 model. Your thoughts? Please share the name and location of the dealership. Thx.

  • Hi Carman,

    Any numbers for September for the 2012 ES 350...I know the 2013 is out, but just checking to see if you know any numbers for the 2012.

  • Wesney,

    Can you share the dealer name and number. I am planning to buy 2012 or 2013 ES350 ..

  • buyabuya Posts: 74
    I test drove a 2013 ES350 yesterday and the salesman said there is no discount because he can't even keep the new cars long enough... May be in his dealership it is. But $2000 off new year model ES350 is a cool deal.
  • buyabuya Posts: 74
    Did you buy it? I'm not happy with the price I was quoted at the dealership and walked. What happened to the $8000 or even $10,000 discounts that people are getting on their ES and RX? I only got a measly $3000 off. I'll buy a different car for just that! I like Lexus, but if I have to pay $5000-8000 more than other people for the same car that's left over from previous sales, I'll buy some other brand that I also like.

    Can't imagine I would pay $33k for a 2010 when 2013 is not that much more. Even if I work for Lexus, and want to pay more for a Lexus, I still wouldn't pay that much.
  • Picked up our 2013 ES 350 with Ultra Luxury Pkg. Paid sticker. Went to two other dealers in the area (Metro NY) they were all charging the same thing. The only difference was trade-in value for our old car. Frankly, we were happy with the price. I think it will be hard to get a discount this soon after the car was released.
