    His posting title :

    '#5729 of 5734 RX 350 2013 (Fully Loaded)........'

    But, he didn't specify AWD or not, or,the original MSRP when new, which of course the dealer has in his file, or can obtain for him to look at. Also, be good to know what the dealer is "showing" as the DOC fees?

    He is wrong. Sorry to say. I always get better deals at the end of the month.

    What is someone trying to gain by saying otherwise.

    Dealers don't want you to know the truth and they hate educated buyers.

    Doc fees are another tactic by dealers to pad profits.
    Being agressive and you can push back on Doc fees.

    If someone tells you that you must pay a doc fee, they must be a dealer or paid by dealers to confuse the buyer.

  • Never said you can't do better. I said your saving would be limited. And that is fact. Yes you can negotiate fee's to a point-- I agree-- but those fee's will not be negotiated with a factory backed lease or buy to the same extent if dealing with no incentive from the factory. All I'm telling you is save the sweat-- your not going to do one heck of a lot better by going through all the bull your trying to tell others. So my advice to a buyer right now is just wait a day or so until the new FACTORY backed deals come out.

    Hi Snowman and everyone else who provided their valuable input,
    The one that I got is 2013 model.
  • Nice job. You did wonderful. Now drive your new ride. Enjoy--- it is a beautiful vehicle. I can't think of any vehicle that I have ever owned that even comes close to this vehicle. Then add the fact you got a beyond great deal--could life be any better--well could be if you won the big lottery-----but can't be greedy.
  • Picked up today - sharing for interested readers. 2013 RX 350 with virtually every option they have. Sticker $51,135. Dealer added paint film (I have no idea what this is), door guards, window tint, mud guards and admin fee ($499), bringing total to right at $52,500 for MSRP. No trade. Paid $46,999.02 out the door, ie. 89.524% of MSRP price. Hope this give you some point of reference. Did NOT purchase maintenance contract option.
  • what about ur tax rate and is that a fwd or awd
  • AWD and no taxes in this total. Taxes will vary from municipality to state and would only skew any objective pricing on the vehicle. Additionally trades will impact the ultimate tax amount as most states only tax the net price after the trade. For this forum - I suggest readers focus only on the vehicle costs and not items that can vary significantly by region/state.

    You recieved 5501 off sticker price . Your math is way off at 89%. The only problem i see is you gave back 499 to dealership in doc fee charge and paid for paint film all dealer profit cutting into your 5500 of sticker. If you did not purchase accessories at invoice price that also cut into your deal..

    11% off your sticker price = $5775

    Not a bad deal.... but you left some money on the table.

    Enjoy your new SUV

    Am buying two cars for my family. FYI I did get a RX 350 2013 one year ago fully loaded - minus blind spot - for 44k and it was TOTALED. Damage was substantial but I was okay, which shows you these are great via safety. So now I can get a 2013 AWD RX for 43.5k (fully loaded) this time around and a new 2014 AWD IS 250 (fully loaded) for 42.5k. Thoughts? BTW these prices are before tax and any extra warranty add-ons.

    I am kind of thinking they should go lower on the 2013 RX since the new 2014s will be coming out, but wanted to see your opinions on this...Don't know too much about the IS as it has just been updated but the test drive went well.

    To me the IS 250 is very small. I would consider the a 2013/2014 Accord V-6. More room, more car for the money, best rated midsize vehicle with lots of standard safety features, great Resale value. 30k out the door

    Your Lexus truck is a great Riding well made truck if you dont mind dropping 46k on it. And you are correct if you negotiate at the end of the month you should come close to 15% off sticker. Always negotiate those high doc fee charges or add them onto your asking price to buy if dealership wont remove..

  • Thanks for the comments, but feel that 89.52% of the MSRP (including the dealer admin costs) is a pretty good deal and I am sure he would have paid for a special value meal at McDonalds if I had asked. $47,000/$52,500 = 89.52%.
  • Seems an okay deal - I was able to get 2013 with all options minus door guards, window tint, mud guards - but added on all weather mats and wheel locks for 44,000. However, with taxes, and 7 year platinum plan final price was 50k even, and that was a year ago.

    I see you weren't to good in math at school

    What is 10% off a MSRP of 52,500? = $ 5,250

    I'll let you figure the rest out?

    Why do you have to attack him personally?

    He said that he paid 89.52% of the MSRP, thereby getting a 10.48% discount. His math is correct to the hundredths.

    Perhaps he should comment on how well you did in English at school?

    "I see you weren't to good in math at school"

    I'll let you figure that one out.

    Stick to giving people purchasing advice please. No need to be uncivil on these great forums.

    You are correct. Thanks for pointing that out. He should of realized my error from my 2nd post to him.

    My apologies to that poster. I Misread. I could not figure out how he was getting that number... I took the Of for Off MSRP plus he reversed his wording instead of saying i got 10.48 % off the msrp..........

  • Every option would be about $60,500-----
  • OMG---how could anyone compare the IS to a ----gulp---Honda product Accord. My god that car is noisy with hard seats. Not even close to the IS.

    I had several Accords thru the years especially when my kids were at driving age. Noisy yes... The a/c,,, heater was load. Hard seats never had a problem. Overall very good vehicles for the money. The new redesign Accord is worth a look. Very quiet inside and the ride is very Nice. Just about every review has this new Accord on top.

    The 2013 IS which is very pricey.. the reviews outside of quiet interior and complaint ride are not to good for a car with this kind of price tag.

    The 2014 reviews seem better but the IS, v-6 has lack luster power and bad fuel economy, terrible head room.

    Edmunds has a full review on the Redesigned 2014 IS Model. You can make your own judgments on it.

    If i was spending 42k it certainly would not be on this car. There are so many better choices for less.

  • Different perception. We can agree to disagree. That's why they have so many brands I guess. Good feedback is what a good blog is all about. It is to help people. Verg good.

    Can I get an opinion on the following deal please?

    RX 350 with rearview camera, proximity and blind spot monitor.

    MSRP: $46,921
    Selling Price: $41,916
    Money Factor: 0.00070
    Residual: 66%

    Total Money Down: $2,000 (includes first month, transfer tag, etc)
    Lexus Incentive: $1,750

    27 Months, 10k Miles: $435 month tax incl.

    Thank you.
  • You got the WOW factor going. Invoice would be about 44K. Your at 42K. They must have really wanted to sell you a car. You must be the owners son. All kidding aside---buy that baby when the lease is up. You can't loose.
    Great deal.
  • Is the 41916 after the 1750 incentive? If not, does that mean that the car selling price is 41916-1750?

    How much should I expect as depreciation if we have to sell this car in a year if I get to buy at the above price instead of leasing assuming I wont put more than 8k miles in a year.
  • 41916 is before applying the 1750 + whatever is left from the (2,000 - inceptions)

    I am not sure how to calculate a 1yr depreciation other than looking at kbb and other sources for a one year old, similar car, average miles... same thing i do when thinking about the residual value.. i look for 3 year old cars,

    Congrats!! Would you please let me know where you got this deal? How did you negotiate?

    MSRP=46921, Sale Price=40166 (41916-1750), Res=66%, MF=0.00070, 27 months, 10k miles, $2000 drive-off

    14.39% off MSRP, Lease= $435/month (390+45tax)

    Are these numbers correct?

    Invoice should be around $43800. You got it around 2k below Invoice and then got 1750 on top. Wow! Congrats again.
  • Yup.. those numbers are correct!.

    pm me your info.
  • Hmm.. Can't seem to figure out how to send a pm. When I click on your username, it takes me to your user profile + last 5 posts page.
    Are you able to pm me?

    The forums aren't set up for private messages. And asking other forum members about their deals helps everyone - that's the whole idea of an online community. So post away.
  • Do you think I would get the same deal if I am ready to buy instead of leasing?
  • Based on what I am hearing, it is possible in SoCal. Once I close mine, I will update.
