#790 of 1157 2007 GX 470

Picked up my 2007 GX 470 today. Every available option but KDSS, (includes XM) for roughly a little over 53000 out the door. Sticker was 56,110 without XM. Dealer was Ray Catena Lexus of Monmouth, NJ. Did most of my preliminary research via the web and they were the best by far. Best experience I've ever had buying a new car. Courteous prfoessional staff with no pressure. The Lexus XM setup on the GX is seemless and the antenna is about a 1" square located on the roof near the lexus link antenna. XM is integrated into touchscreen with the Nav Unit/ Mark Levinson System. Sound was fantastic.

I ended up purchasing a 2007 GX470.
I first thought I had a purchase agreed on with Lexus of Dayton on a 2007, 3rd row, no nav for $44,200. When I called to secure it, they changed their story to saying it was sold. Then, they wanted $500 to secure me one from another dealer and promised the same price. After several days and me trying to get in touch with them for an update, they tell me they found an 2006 same options for $300 more. If I wanted a 2007 it was another $2500 on top of the price I was quoted. I would never do business with them after that.
I purchased the GX470 with 3rd row, no nav sticker of $49700 for $45000 even + tax/title.

ABSOLUTELY, especially with the price of gas. (See my post under leasing) While I was originally laughed out of Kearny Mesa Lexus in San Diego for asking them to meet an at-invoice quote, they eventually came back to me for $500 over invoice, but I had already went ahead on a deal from another dealer that made me an easy, seemless, honest offer at invoice. I hate games. Although I eventually chose to lease, at the time I negotiated my deals I was looking at buying. Always head for the "internet" department, they won't jerk you as hard as the others.
PS, most Credit Unions have a buying service that can get you very close to invoice (unless you want the Lexus lease rates) , and you will never even have to set foot in the door of the dealership.

Schan1w- could not access your email address on profile- my truck was 53500 out the door including (all options including xm but not kdss) TTL

I was offered 2006 GX with all options (including KDSS) for $46,400 + TTL. This is a demo vehicle with 400 miles in it. Is it a good price or should I go for 2007 model?. Please let me know. I really appreciate your response.

That's not bad. In addition to pricing, your selection for 2006/2007 should be based on what you're looking for in the GX. I waited for the 2007 because I wanted the Gen 5 Nav unit (higher resolution and updated points of interest), the Mark Levinson sound system 6 disk player for 2007 will play mp3s and WMAs on DVDs and CDs that you create. 6 DVDs with mp3s or WMAs is a LOT of music. The DVD player (Rear entertainment system) for 2007 also has a 9" display compared to a 7" for the 2006. I also wanted XM Satellite Radio and that is completely integrated with the 2007 Stereo. I am not certain but I understand the driveline "klunk" was resolved for 2007. I haven't noticed it on mine in over 200 miles. If those items aren't important- go for the 2006.
