I'm not sure how different MA would be from CA, but I think you should be able to knock another $1000 off of that fairly easily. Keep shopping....see what sorts of other offers you can raise!
Remember that Lexus dealers get holdback of 2% of the Base MSRP. This is perhaps sacred money to them, but it's a good reason why so many are able to get prices at or near invoice.
#2584 of 3130 Completed my deal in Northern California
Dec 15, 2005 (11:25 pm)
I got the car today...MSRP of $48,573 with a price of $42,297 plus tax and lic. I dealt with Lexus of Pleasanton and they didn't even try to jack me up on extended warranties or extras. The finance guy did mention them, but we are talking zero pressure. I'm very happy....my best car buying experience ever!
I must comment....Lexus of Serramonte and Coliseum Lexus (Oakland) were both instrumental in my receiving this deal. Lexus of Serramonte was the dealership that gave me the lowest bids and seemed to be the easiest to work with....they simply didn't have the car that I wanted in stock. Coliseum Lexus matched the price I wanted readily....and if Lexus of Pleasanton hadn't given me the price I wanted then I would have gotten a little bit less of a car from Coliseum Lexus.
I feel comfortable recommending any of these three dealerships to anybody looking to buy in Northern California. As a matter of fact, after all my research, I'd simply concentrate on those three and you'll not waste any further legwork finding the best price.
After driving this car to it's hiding spot for the next week.....man.....my wife is going to freak on Christmas morning!

I remember the MSRP $45083 having the invoice price of $39420. The ballpark number in the forum is NOT paying >1000 over invoice. It is more like +/- $500 from invoice depending on the region. Cheers,

A reporter from a large national newspaper would like to speak to consumers who just recently purchased a new vehicle in the past six months. If you have a story to share, please respond to ctalatiedmunds.com with your daytime contact info., city/state of residence, and the make/model(s) that you bought no later than December 22, 2005.

Why don't you guys try to push for -$1000 under invoice. It's the 3rd year of the model, I have seen ppl getting it for 1k under now.

I just popped back onto the forum. I have not bought my car yet as I have to turn in my Benz. The lease is up next month. I agree that Lexus of Serramontes has been great. They gave me the lowest price right off the bat while I had a few other dealers try to haggle. I promptly deleted their messages. I am getting the same quotes you did. I will let you know once I get my car.
Your wife is one lucky lady! Merry Christmas!
#2590 of 3130 RX 330 best price
Dec 19, 2005 (6:07 am)
I am new to this forum. Does anyone have experience with RX 330 pricing in the Seattle-Tacoma area? Specifically Lexus of Tacoma at Fife.
I was quoted $46,232 for a 2006 RX 330 with the following:
Premium Plus Package
6 disc CD
heated seats & rain sensing wipers
They're offering $12,500 on my trade...2001 VolvoXC70.In reading other member's prices I am thinking I should be able to get the car for about $40,000 + Tax & License.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

It appears you are working on a vehicle with an MSRP of $45,753 based on the options indicated. You should be able to get that vehicle for $40,000 or slightly more...definitely not more than $41,000. Keep shopping. The best bet is to send quote requests to every dealer in your immediate area. This can be done via the Lexus website. Good luck!

I'm in South Florida and don't know whether prices can be compared to kirin in Washington, but this past weekend, I bought that same car as a 2 WD (I'm not familiar with "protective trim", so probably don't have that...) with the addition of a Tow Package for $39,510 -- includes everything except tax. I had spoken to 3-4 dealerships before purchasing. I'm happy with the dealer, with the bamboo pearl color, and with my purchase price. Thanks to the forum members for all the postings and information. Very helpful!
