  • you dont know the truth when you hear it...my experience was exactly what I stated..why did I not buy there...because when I called my dealer in Md....he matched the deal to save my business..plus he is selling my son in law a 430 for $2500 over co…
  • When the cars were out only 3 weeks, about 5 weeks ago, I offered to Bell Lexus in Scottsdale, AZ to pay $5000 below list for a $50,300car..they refused,,but 45 minutes later they called me back and accepted....dont believe anything the salesmen tel…
  • I went online about a monthago..and Sheehy Lexus in 'annapolis came right back with a $1500 discount..they quoted sticker price and their price...the saleswoman was very friendly and helpful.my guess is they will do better than that..go visit the de…

  • I originally posted the saleman's name at Bell Lexus, but host of Edmunds emailed me that I could not put up a salesmans name...but make the offer...dont listen to any sales talk, make the offer..wait a few days..
  • 06 GS300 Bell Lexus in Scottsdale will do $4000 off..other dealers I have talked to start at $1500 off. they are tripling production on GS..dont pay list..its a hoax PS I bought at $1200 over..about $5300 off..got 2nd car for my son in law $2500 …

  • I have emailed 5 Lexus dealers this week for price on GS300 06....3 want list price, 1 quoted me $1500 off a $51,000 sticker..Live in Wash, DC area..do you think price will soften next month.I would like to buy by May 1..thanks...
  • I drove MB for 23 years...my last two were total total trouble...had a 91 300SL owned it from new for 5 years..only had 20,000 total miles..was in shop on average of 30 days per year...traded for new 96 MB E320..had trouble from day one...cold start…
  • I have given this info before,,,I had terrible experience with the original run flats..after suffering for 10,000 miles, and after extensive investigation, I replaced them with Dunlop run flats..which improved ride 90% and performance 90%...had co…
  • When I replaced my original runflats, they had 11,000 miles on them and looked like new...did not show any wear..I think they can easily last at least 20,000 miles..my present Dunlap runflats have 4000 miles on them and are perfect.
  • As I have stated before, I complained about my run flats from the week I received the car in March 01,,it was one of the first delivered...finally after 11,000 miles in 2003 and with the help of my dealer, Lexus reimbursed me in full for the cost o…
  • You refer to your SC430 as a 2001, but Lexus did not ever sell this car until it was intoduced as a 2002...did you make an honest mistake, dont know how to type well or what??
  • The problems on the SC 430 tires were all corrected in the 2003 model year..it is the best car of its type regardless of price..you dont have to wait..if you have the money buy it now..the car will be here next year, but you might not....good luck..…
  • There is no way in this world to compare the two..the Nissan is ugly and small..the Lexus, while not a beauty, is beautiful next to the 350Z conv and hands down a world of difference...Lexus hit a home run with this car..syling 2nd place everything…
  • Again..let me tell you..I put on Dunlop runflats on my SC430 ..a world of difference...I was advised by relative in New York.who did it first..then I did it...best thing..its a different car...Irv
  • Again let me tell you the absolute truth..I bought my SC430 March 2001..lst one out. the Brigeton tires were defective from day one...after putting up with them for 10,000 miles with the pulling and poor ride, I finally, on sound advice put on a n…

  • Well run flats seem to be the wave of the future..several 04"s have them.including some Cadillac models..I switched from the defective Bridgestone rf that came on my SC430 to Dunlops..they cost me $1107..which I think is a better deal than regullar …
  • Thank you Onfire1...you reaffirm what I have found out..the hard way..only sorry I waited so long to make the change..Lexus knew by the amount of complaints they had that the Bridgestone tires were no good.but ignored the complaints..they didn"t wan…
