#980 of 2771 New lease on RX-350
Oct 24, 2008 (3:31 am)
Have gotten mine yesterday at Lexus of Rockville, MD.
Here it is:
2008 Lexus PX350****
$ 399 per for 36 Month Lease = 14364
All leases are 10,000 miles per year and require the following at lease inception: 1st payment, applicable state & local taxes and tag fees, dealer processing fee of $349, down payment $3495 on the PX350, $700 acquisition fee
PX350 AWD MSRP $43,591
1st negotiated a price for 39800. Then the complicated part started. Since I've come in FULLY prepared w/ all numbers it was well over the salesperson's head and I've dealt with the Gen.Sales mgr. He offere MF which translated to 5.52%APR which I immediately declined. After some haggling MF of 0.0013 (3.12% APR) was given.Oh, my FICA is 791. I've used a VERY interesting option (if you have some extra cash and don't mind to lock it for 3 yr at a rate of return of 15%/yr ) and added a multiple security deposit of 9 monthly payment - $3375 which brought my MF down to .00058 i.e. 1.392 % APR. So, my monthly payment is 353.19. Residual is 23975. I've paid taxes on a selling price (unfortunately, that's how it's in MD, I've had the dealer to show me the official state docs on it just to make sure), 1st month payment, title/tags, 3495 downpay, 700 acquisition fee, NO dealer fee and 3375 refundable security deposit. I also redemed $1679 I've accumulated using Lexus VISA AND $750 gift certificate from Lexus for attending their driving event this summer. Since there is a promotion for Lexus Visa until 10/31 I'm receiving another $500 towards my next (in 3 years) Lexus + by paying $5000 of "drive away" amount with, again, Lexus Visa
there is another $250 for me Everything w/ paperwork has taken 5.5 hrs. I think time was well spent.
#981 of 2771 dealer cash still available apparently

Yes, it's true, it's still here. Plus, I have only heard about fluctuating m.f. on the leases... the residuals are the same, the m.f. is .00100 for top tier (720+) people - according to one dealer.
Funny, the m.f. another dealer was quoting was higher - and in the same region of CA. Which, stalled my purchase, of course, when the numbers are all over the place.
Any new lessees? Trying again either this week or towards the end of the month when things are likely to be hopping because of Turkey Day and all.
Thanks for any info...
#982 of 2771 CPO Lease Rates?
Nov 06, 2008 (8:41 am)
My dealer tells me it's not worth leasing a CPO even though LFS offers the program. Does anyone know the lease money factors and other information on a 2006 RX330 lease? Assume ~35,000 miles and a sale price of $30,000.
Thanks in advance! - oh I should mention, this forum saved me $5000 on my ES350 purchase last year!
#985 of 2771 current deals on rx350
Nov 06, 2008 (6:05 pm)
looks like there are decent lease deals to be had on an rx350 these days in the tri-state area. 36 months, 15k/year, inception fees out of pocket (i.e. no cap cost redux), no sales tax up front (i.e. rolled into the monthly paymt) - around $450/month
Nov 08, 2008 (1:35 pm)
to the best of my knowledge, 09 RX350 AWD (non-NAV and non-Entertainment)numbers for November are as follows (36mo/15k). Car_man - would be great if you could confirm...
There is also a $1K dealer cash, and some sort of a $1K coupon from Lexus that can be used toward an up-front paymt.

I think the residual is 54% but then again, I'm looking at the Nav which might change things. Ah, I see you're doing 15k so 52% is likely correct. I'm looking at 12k.
Yes to the .00095 mf for top tier fico scores from what I'm hearing, too.
What quotes are you getting? Mine are all over the place.
#988 of 2771 Re: [marinite]
Nov 08, 2008 (7:25 pm)
$36.8K for the non-NAV (MSRP $43,591)

Nov 08, 2008 (8:04 pm)
indus2 and marinite...What region of the country are you two in? My daughter and son-in-law were quoted a mf of .0013 and $39,000 for a non-nav in Seattle.
