#2 of 54 lexus SC 430

I'm thinking of buying a used 02/03. To get the best deal should I wait until Sept/Oct.? Does anyone know if the 07 model will be redesigned?? Thanks...
#3 of 54 Price range for a CPO Lexus SC 430
May 11, 2006 (8:58 am)
I'm looking at buying a 2002 or 2003 CPO sc 430, and the KBB trade-in and retail values for this vehicle differs about $10K.
Therefore, should I expect to pay toward the high or low end of this range for this particular vehicle? I think this is heavily based on the popularity of the vehicle.
Any thoughts would help.

The best time to buy an SC430 is dead of winter. If you live in the south, then the summer is also good, i.e. it is no fun to drive with the top down when it's 95 degrees. Spring and fall are the worst times to buy.

I am looking at getting an 03 SC430. I can get a CP from a Lexus dealer for $45K with 17K miles or an 03 for $35K with 55K miles from a non Lexus dealer. This car is scheduled to be inspected by a Lexus dealer. The car looks excellent. Any thoughts on which is the better buy?
#6 of 54 Buy now or next spring

Do you feel there is a major benefit here in New England in waiting to buy a used 2003 SC430 early next year rather than now due to the additional depreciation?
#8 of 54 Purchase and Lease prices for a 2007??
Dec 31, 2006 (12:53 pm)
The first quote we received for an 2007 SC 430 was $61,800, approx $5,000 off sticker price. The lease quote was for $1,022, 15k miles and residual of $36,964. A second dealer told us before we even ask for a price that they were starting $4,000 below sticker.This is lower than what Edmunds and Kellys are quoting as true market value for the car. Any thoughts on why they seem so interested in dealing on this model?

My experience is that it is almost always possible to buy any new car at a price below kbb and edmunds numbers.

I see where SC430 sales in December down 39% from a year ago. (Well, this is better than SL sales, which are down 50% from a year ago.) I think this explains why dealers are anxious to deal on them. They probably have a factory incentive on them.
