Hi jack1963. The truck that you described has a spread of around $5,000 between its MSRP and dealer invoice price. You were quoted a discount of around $2,200 on it. I have seen other community members get better prices than this. Try stopping by the following discussion to see how much others have paid for similar trucks: "Lexus RX 330 / RX 350: Prices Paid & Buying Experience". When you arrive at an attractive selling price, make sure to have the dealer that you are working with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor. Lexus Financial Services' current special buy rate for a 36 month lease of a 2007 RX 350 is .00163 for consumers who qualify for its Tier 1+ credit tier.

Hi Danny. Lexus Financial Services charges an acquisition fee of $600 on every vehicle that it leases. Individual dealers do not have the authority to waive this fee. You can either pay it at lease signing or have it rolled into your truck's capitalized cost.

Hi, I negotiated a price on a 2007 RX350 with NAV etc for $40250. MSRP is $45705. I then had the salesman figure out the lease cost based on 36 months, 12,000 miles, no $ down (aside from taxes, 1st month, motor vehicle fees etc). He based this on a factor of .00163 and 57% residual. The number he came up with was $551.18 a month. I tried myself with the numbers a few times and I got $503. Any help would be appreciated as I am ready to make this deal. Thanks so much
#250 of 2763 2007 RX 370 Lease Question
Oct 31, 2006 (3:58 pm)
Armed with advice from this useful forum, I made a deal in the Los Angeles area for a RX 350, FWD, Prem. Plus, and Nav.
Car price was $37,785, and the lease was 36 months/12k, 58% resid., and money factor
of .00163 (I qualify). All was agreed to very clearly, in writing, via email. When I went
to buy the car this morning they refused to honor the lease deal--56% and .00197.
They said I had to prove that I could get that deal from another dealer, which was
never a condition of the deal. So I walked, and they let me go.
Any advice on how to proceed? What are the ethics in a situation like this.

wactedout, have you checked with some other
Lexus dealers nearby? I'm not too sure if this is a good deal, but then again I don't know what options you have on the car. At least try to get a comparison quote of some kind from another dealer just for a little more peace of mind. Good luck!!!

I just received a e mail alert from my sales person at Newport Lexus stating that Lexus has just come out with a special lease program on the RX350. I haven't called him yet. Anyone know about this new lease program ?
