#1 of 49 05 Lx 470 PRICES PAID & buying experiences
Nov 02, 2004 (5:37 am)
Lets start the discussion group and can anyone help me from where I reside or should I travel west to California? I am often on business trips that lead me to several states. Perhaps it is best that I have my Lx 470 selection shipped to the Southeast? JM will not deal as much on the Lx 470 so far is what I have experienced... ALSO I learned that they are not the largest store in the world!! Any advise members? We seek and immediate purchase for a 2005 Ls 430 sedan or 2005 Lx 470 SUV. No Local Atlanta, Georgia nor Alabama dealer offers us much savings on any selection is what we are encountering. Perhaps we should wait until the end of the 2005 year to buy our Lexus selection instead? I hear that the best bargains occur during that period, fewer salesman haggle and their apparent 'take it or leave it' demeanor alters. Of course we have heard about the end of season limited colors likelihood although we are flexible. What should be our next step?

Actually, I heard JM is indeed the largest Lexus dealer in the world. However, their location in Florida would probably not help you in getting the best price on a LX470. There are 4 Lexus dealers in close proximity to DC. I received a quote of $4300 off list from Pohanka Lexus when I was shopping for my 04 LS430 in 1/04; I ended up buying from Lexus of Northborough in MA, which matched the price. From the posts I've read on the LS430 chat site, the discounts on 04's got progressively bigger as 2004 wore on. I've also heard that the discounts are biggest in December, as Lexus has a huge desire to remain #1 in luxury car sales over BMW and MB.
I'm just starting the shopping process for an 05 LX470. Intuitively, I think a dealership in the Northeast, with larger demand for and therefore inventory of the LX470 would be more likely to offer a larger discount. I could be wrong. Any leads?

Were you able to find out what people have been paying for an 05 LX470? I am on the east coast and in the process of looking. Thanks

I was just in JM Lexus in South Florda. They had a sales price tag in the window of a black LX showing $2,500 off of sticker on an '05. I'm trying to swing a deal on a loaded '04 but they won't budge much more than about $3k- doesn't seem to make sense- guess I'll get an '05.
I'm going to try Lexus of Palm Beach.
#5 of 49 2005 LX pricing
Mar 24, 2005 (4:31 am)
Hi, I am researching which car to buy and I think I have finally picked the LX 470 (2005 after considering the 2005 models of the range rover, BMW X5, and lexus RX) however they seem to be in high demand. I am located in California, Central Valley area and was wondering if anyone knew of where I could get the best price (dealership, online etc). The car I want has a MSRP of 70,065 which is loaded with most of the options including the RES, what price can I expect to pay?
Thanks for any advice you have.
#6 of 49 Pricing and internet broker.

I bought my 04 LX through an internet broker - fleetrates.com. I live in the Bay Area, but they were able to put me in touch with a large volume dealer in LA (Longo). I flew to LA- the salesman picked me up at the airport. We had set up most of the transaction ahead of time over the phone, so it didn't take long to pick up my LX and drive it home. You buy the car directly from the dealer, the broker just puts you in touch with a dealer willing to sell at a good price. I saved 1K by doing this. I was a little leary about doing the broker thing, but it's totally fine and I'll probably buy my next car this way. I think someone last year recommended fleetrates on the Edmunds LX forum. Good luck.

Starting to research the '06 LX470 so that I can purchase. Can you tell me appx. what you paid compared to MSRP? Was it considerably lower? Higher? Same? Wondering if I should wait until December to purchase (re:year end sale numbers). Any thoughts?

Start with Sewell Lexus of Dallas - largest Lexus service location in the country...big dealership...ask for the internet service manager...i dont think we can give out names on this site but it's a woman and she's GREAT! I got a 2006 - yes I said 2006 Silver LX470 brand spanking new with 34 miles fresh off the truck for $6604 under MSRP....it just takes lots of patience, a willingness to wait, a little luck, and lots of negotiating (we shopped around from Dallas to HOuston to California to New Hampshire but the best price was the 2nd closest dealership to our house). Good luck!

34 miles??? I'd consider that a used car. I got my 06 GX470 last week right off the truck and it had 3 miles on it.
