#2394 of 2763 Can a Hawaii Resident Lease an RX 350 from a Calif. Lexus Dealer?
Jun 14, 2012 (5:05 am)
The only dealer in Hawaii is Servco Lexus. They are not part of Lexus Financial Services on the mainland but have an exclusive contract with Lexus, Japan. Leasing is done through a single local bank whose money factor is .00210. This is a quote for a 2012 RX 350 AWD, loaded with ML, Heads up display, Luxury Pkg, Nav, etc. MSRP $52,832, end of lease value 55%, $5,800 discount, $5,000 down and payments of $580 / month for 36 months.
My mouth is watering when I compare prices and leasing rates on the mainland to our situation here in paradise with no competing Lexus dealers.
Here are my questions, can I lease an RX 350 from a mainland Lexus dealer and ship the car to Hawaii? Would I need to guarantee to purchase the car at lease end?
#2395 of 2763 Lease offer for 2012 RX350, opinions?
Jun 19, 2012 (6:30 am)
I am being offered a 33 month/10k/yr lease on a RX350 AWD with nav, MSRP: 49360 for 449/month with 3155.55 due at signing. Does it look like a good deal or should I try to push for a better deal. This is in NJ, (I am in northern jersey, tristate area, the dealer is in central Jersey)
$449 – 1st pmt
$700 – Bank Fee
$302.50 – 3 years plates/registration
$264 – NJ tire tax, NJ online motor vehicle fee and documentation fee
$4,050 – Multiple Security Deposits
$1,440 – Cap Cost Reduction
Money Factor: .00028 ( finance rate of 0.67%)
With my calculation the Price on this car that I am getting is $45203 which seems to be around 5k off MSRP
Any opinions would be appreciated.

Hi I need advice. I was quoted the following on a 2013 RX350. No Nav - everything else. AWD.
Sticker is $46,175.
Base lease on $44,929
$664 per month with $3,586 cash out the door
3 year lease with 15,000 miles per year. Minneapolis.
This would be the second Lexus for me. Other lease to be returned. Exceptional credit. Thoughts? Seems high??
Thanks for any help.

I am no expert on these, but as a datapoint, I was able to negotiate the 2013 with NAV down to $3200 down + $4950 in MSD and a payment of $499 x 33 months with 10k down. I was/am looking for a 2012 so I passed on this and did not find out the other details. BTW I went through costco car buying which I was told gets about 4k off the MSRP ( not sure if this was specific to 2012s). This is in northern NJ (NYC metro area)

you will not be able to ship the car from mainland to Hawaii. you will have a lein on the title that will prevent you being able to ship.

First time post, long time reader.
I am looking for best 36 month lease for the money in a suv, lowest money factor, highest residual in the Seattle market, top tier credit, 10 to 12k miles per year.
Lexus 350, Acura Mdx, or others you see as good value?

Welcome aboard mlrseattle as they say on sports radio.
The 2012 RX 350 still has a decent lease program available on it, but the restyled 2013 model does not have any support yet.
The lease program on the Acura MDX is probably slightly better because there's $1,500 dealer cash on it that can be used on leases.
The lease programs on the Audi and BMW SUVs are worse.
I haven't seen the new lease program for the Cadillac SRX yet, but I suspect that it is competitive.
The Infiniti FX35 should cost around the same as the MDX to lease as well.
