Good luck finding a price like that in the Pacific Northwest! I was told by the internet sales manager at Lexus of Bellevue that $40-41k is the best price they can give on a 2005 AWD RX 330 w/o nav (list of $42,458, invoice $37,193). This was the same person I negotiated with for my 2002 AWD RX 300 at $500 over invoice. Please let me know if you find pricing that close to invoice anywhere around here!

I agree with you. the massachusetts dealers seem to be holding the line. perhaps because we are heading into winter? Anyway, per my previous post (#1630) I have a deal on the table for 2k over invoice with Lexus of Watertown. It was a straightforward negotiation.
Carflat...what has been your experience in massachusetts and at which dealer(s)?
#1640 of 3130 Finally got my 2005
Nov 26, 2004 (7:34 am)
I purchased my 2005 RX330 on the day before thanksgiving...now I am truely thankful.
Got a great deal at McGrath Lexus- Chicago. 2% over invoice ($772) on a 2005 AWD w/
Premium Plus package
18" alloy wheels
Heated FS w/ RS wipers
in Mellinium Silver w/ black interior
This is pretty much how all the RX's come in this area. Thought I got a good deal with a little negotiation via email. Showed up at the dealer and everything went very smooth. Deal done in 45 min, but it took another 2.5 hours to go through everything in the RX. Love it so far... Good luck. Dealt with the internet rep. She was very professional!!!

Just picked up the car yesterday. World's apart from the RX300 that we had. Love the nav. Now I don't have to drive around in search of my fav fast food joints (unfortunately, it doesn't appear that in-n-out burgers paid for a listing on the map).
Purchased the car at Lexus Serramonte in Northern CA. Putnam Lexus and Stevens Creek Lexus are the two other dealerships here on the peninsula, but I didn't really talk to them at length. Serramonte offers free storage and shuttle service to SFO (during weekday business hours), which has been an extremely valuable benefit.

I am looking to buy RX330, I will appreciate you sharing your experience, and price you brought for and dealer name. This will help me less or minimal negotiation and will make buying experience hassle free.

#1644 of 3130 Lexus RX330 in Phoenix area
Nov 28, 2004 (2:01 pm)
Any one had any experience in getting quotes from lexus dealers in Phoenix area?
Only three in Phoenix and I was given a general quote of $2000 over invoice from dealer in Scottscale.
Would appreciate if anyone can share their experience

I am trying to determine what a fair price would be in the Pittsburgh area. MSRP is around 42.3K and according to Edmunds, invoice is around 33,500 (I can't believe there is an 8,800 difference btw the two on this car). Quote I got was for around 1,300 under MSRP. From the posts on this board that doesn't look very attractive. Can anyone tell me what they think is a fair, easily closable deal? Also, anyone had any recent luck in Western PA?

The invoice pricing you got from Edmunds must be before premium packages and other options. You can use this same site's TMV service to get fair pricing in your area. Also, you can use http://www.carsdirect.com. This site provides some of the best pricing available in your zip code. Good luck.
#1647 of 3130 Lowest Illinois Interest Rate
Nov 30, 2004 (6:21 am)
Does anyone know what the lowest interest rate you can get on an RX in Illinois for 60 months. I feel our dealer is way too high at what they are offering. What is the lowest you have been quoted and where?
