#1825 of 3130 2005 Rx 330 So CAL
Feb 12, 2005 (11:26 pm)
I just picked up a 2005 rx 330 fwd no navi with the premium plus package at Lexus of Cerritos for $35,400 before ttl and $38,697 after ttl. I had submitted 6-7 quotes through the internet for dealers in the so cal area and when i walked into Lexus of Cerritos, I just gave them a price that was about $100 lower than all the quotes I had received and they matched it without any question. Is this considered a good deal?

I finally purchased it after reading about it on this site for weeks! This is an excellent resource, I recommended it to all my friends.
Paid $40,500 before tax & documentation fees for a 05' RX330 AWD, prem pkg, in dash 6 CD changer with NAV. Went through Costco program. I purchased it at Prestige Lexus in Ramsey NJ. Had a great salesperson, did everything on the phone, no hassle!
#1827 of 3130 And the Price Goes Up
Feb 18, 2005 (7:14 am)
Over the last couple of days it appears that Lexus has raised the price on the RX330 AWD by $250.00, This happened just about the time the new RX Thundercloud hit the dealers. So the moral to the story is, if you're waiting or waiting to buy, don't wait to long.
#1828 of 3130 Price goes up
Feb 18, 2005 (11:16 am)
When I was shopping around at the various Lexus dealers in my area, 1 dealership told me that prices would be going up slightly in Feb. I wasn't able to confirm it at another dealership so brushed it off, figured it was salesman talk to get me to buy sooner.
I guess it was true.

I got the same one plus DVD Entertainment system as well, but no towing package and Thundercloud edition.
The MSRP was 47,xxx
I got it for 41,xxx + TTL
You can try a few more dealers to get a better deal.

I have been shopping for RX 330 and $5k off MSRP is very common. I was even advised by salesperson to wait till RX 400h comes out to get even better deal on RX 330.

ctsang, are you in CA? Here in the east coast, $4k off is already hard to come by. Any body had better luck recently in NY metro area?

I finally pulled the trigger on a 2005 RX330 FWD. After months of searching the boards I was able to negotiate a good deal. I purchased a fully loaded RX330 with Navi./Levinson Audio Pkg., Prem. Plus Pkg., RES, Rain Sensing Wipers, Towing Setup, Cargo Tray, and All Weather Mats. Purchased for 41,491.00, a savings of about 5500.00 off MSRP! Dealership experience was awesome; Lexus of Stevens Creek gets my recommendation for the bay area. I negotiated by phone/internet and was in and out off the dealership in about 2 hours. This was my first time purchasing a luxury car and I could not be more satisfied with the service. Thanks for all the information everyone has posted on this board, it has been truly helpful.
