Some Lexus dealers in the mid-atlantic are giving huge discounts on the 2006, 400h, trying to clear out their old inventory. I just got a 400h AWD with navigation, stick was $49.9, paid $44.5 + ttl. Yes, that's $5.5 off msrp. Most dealers will knock off at least $3,000 if you talk to them for more than five minutes. If your dealer wants more than this, go to another dealer. It really pays to shop around. p.s. The car is terrific, drives like a dream.

I'm looking to lease the RX 400h and I want to make sure I ask the right questions to calculate my lease. Are all these points available for disclosure by the dealer? Are there other questions I should ask? Thanks

Dealers aren't required to disclose the money factor.. However, the residual value is printed on the lease, and is set by LFS, and the dealer can't change it.
If you want to know those numbers, ask Car_man here:

Money factors and residuals vary by term/mileage, so be sure to let him know the parameters of the lease you are interested in.

Tim - which dealer in mid-Atlantic? thanks!
The ones I have called and on 2 occasions when I sat down in the office are only discounting half of what's shown.
AWD + NAV = $47k.

The dealer I bought from was Lexus of Towson, in Maryland. I highly recommend them: best price, curteous and honest. The best car buying experience I've had. My first contact was using the Internet to get a quote, then follow up negotiations on the phone. They will actually talk price, in a serious fashion, on the phone. The pick up was smooth, and I love the car. Good luck.

tim - strange - they're the 1st one I went to but wouldn't go lower than $47ish.
Thanks for the info thou.
BTW - is your 400h a gold one by any chance?

I would think that it's dependent on the day of the month, the day of the week, and as we get to the end of the 2006s, you can score some great deals, depending on what's on the lot.
At the time of my deal $4300 was the best I'd heard of, but within days, we saw $5500 appear. I have no regrets, it was the right time (needed a car within five days), right color (had trouble locating Neptune Blue), right dealer (good location, will use them for service).
You should try them again.
